Default Re: Shift Kits?? Confused =\

basically the advantage of a shift kit is that the motor drives the crank ring which freewheels in one direction---you can still peddle the bike in the normal way when the motor is off--the freewheel will engage when YOU peddle or freewheel letting the engine turn the crank ring thus eleminating the "second chain/sprocket" on the left side of the bike. This enables you to use the bikes gears in a normal fashion with motor or peddling thus not having to be stuck with one gear ratio. This help?
