I'm new to forums and bicycle motors. I just build my first bike last week-end. Its a KONA Lanai, brand new that I got for 550$. I sold my MINELLI Dual suspension since the frame was unusable to sit that chinese motor, a Jet silver 80CC from Zoombicycles.
Took me 4-5 hours to complete it. First run was a disaster. I broke the chain link, and lost all the parts! So basically I never heard the motor run!
I found the problem, my sproket was not well aligned and the chain was off when I applied pressure to start it.
I was kind of upset, so I order another chain and a pull start cord.
Now I'm waiting to get it in the mail. Just heard it was packed today in British Columbia. I just hope I get it this friday....
Any other suggestion on aligning the motor? I did spent another hour yesterday to align the sproket and got it right straight. But it seems the motor sproket is a bit slanted. Is that normal? I guess not... but I can't really move my engine that much.
Where I live, I saw 2 guys with a Bicycle motors. In my city of 75000 of population!
