Default Re: What do you think? Shift kit or new sprocket?

Are you saying you can't just do a bump start like with the rear sprocket that comes with the kits? Being able to shut the motor off and back on at will is a great thing when riding around using the bump start, as I can pedal when I want without the motor but fire it up when need be (big hills).
