    Can someone tell how about I can mount a weed eater engine to my bike. It's a ccm 26" bike. Also can I still have the recoil if I mount a peg. I also need to know how I can go about mounting a throttle on the handlebars and replace the kill switch. The weedeater I'm using for it is a homelite the versa tool

    There is a video on youtube that you can search for (don't remember which one).
    But before you make something - find out what is legal where you are.

    The high rpm weed eater motor will require a gear reduction of 14:1 or so between the crankshaft and rear wheel. You will probably need a jackshaft to achieve that much gear reduction.

    I removed the trimmer shaft and found out it has a centrifugal clutch. I don't know how I'm going to be able to put a socket now

    Take it off and put a bike peg on the flywheel, then bolt it on. I can't tell you how to unhook the clutch it depends on the weed eater. Grip up the peg with a dremel.
