Default Re: Shift Kit Question

Thanks... may be going with an old Huffy 26er frame than- it's got good paint, measures compatible with the shifter kit and motor, and accepts the RST fronts easily... this Giant needs too much damn work to use it as a frame (strip, paint, adjust suspension, buy BB tool/get BB removed, get new BB cups and bearings, etc).

From looking at the kit it appears to use three total chains, one from motor output to jackshaft input, one from jackshaft input to BB crank, and final drive from BB Crank to rear wheel/gearbox. Do these chains require more maintenance (adjustment, lubrication etc) than a typically used chain of similar size? Do I need to worry about adjustment consistently (since there seem to be three chains, the potential for error is greater).
Motorcycles, Motor-bicycles and bicycles- two wheels and the open air is all I need.
