Default Re: Shift Kits?? Confused =\

With the engine kit you can still peddal the bike and shift gears,but just when peddaling cause the engine chain drive is on left side.

If you don't have a shift kit the peddals will not spin with the motor cause the right side of the peddal side wheel has a freewheel that when coasting with the bike or when using motor the peddals do not spin.

Getting a shift kit for the engine reroutes the left side engine chain to connect to the right side and connects to the peddals and can use the bikes shifting gears just like you do when you peddal.
