Default Re: New guy, new bike, new engine kit

I just used regular bike chain on the motor sprocket side. It's easier to shorten and work with. And I don't have to bother with that cheap tensioner anymore. I am curious if regular bike chain might break on me though. It would be cool if other members could chime in here a tell if regular bike chain is strong enough for the engine. It seems so for now. The cool thing about having a multi gear sprocket on the pedal side is that I can get both the engine chain and the pedal chain tight together easier. Plus I get to have freewheel, I can stop if I am standing up on the pedals.
