Re: Shift Kits?? Confused =\
No, then the sprocket would just freewheel, like when you pedal backwards.
The kit should more accurately be called a "jackshaft kit", which it is, the shifting part id from your bike parts, not the kit.
Also without it, you can run the engine and the pedals won't turn. The only thing you use the pedals for it starting the engine, and starting off, before you let the clutch out.
