Re: I need your guys' 2 cents on durability/ longevity issues on HT motors and.....
If your kit was the one that comes with a bicycle chain, not the bigger (#415) moped chain, buy a new one! I have done three builds so far that have come with very low quality bicycle chains. After about fifty miles you start finding multiple stiff links in the chain, even when its been lubed. I bought a decent quality BMX chain and the bike runs faster and noticeably smoother. Thats my 2 cents.
