I'm new and am curious what you meant by that. Do clutches slip at high speeds or something?

How much did you get your motor for?
Home light chainsaws seem pretty cheap.. are their motors reliable? How many miles is on your motor? How many miles do you ride it daily? How hard/fast do you ride it most of the time?

And I see it's a chain drive using a chain, is the motor mounted in the rear of the bike or is it mounted inside the bike frame between the pedals?
