Default Re: New to motorized bikes, not new to bikes

Welcome aboard Sassifrass. Most of the issues above are pretty common. It sounds like your chain might be too tight, I ajust mine the way I was taught for motorcycles, two fingers lifts the chain about one chain width. These engines are rated at les than 2hp so they are not known for their hillclimbing abilities. You can change your gearing for more low end by changing your rear sprocket to a larger one, this will take away from your top speed though. Enjoy the ride...Kelly
