p.s. If your plans come to, feel free to stop here in Champaign-Urbana Il. We can ride somewhere and get some lunch.
I talked to my son and watched some videos on engines. Youtube has everything these days, I think! My son said I might want to look into getting the springs, too. If I have to break it down once a week and clean it all up inside, I can handle that, as long as I know how it came apart. And now I know that the clutch controls when the the belt or chain is turning.

But definitely the chain, and an extra clutch. Are tensioners the tool used to take out links in the chain?

lots of reading on this forum so you know how to install and fix it
and what tools you will need to do so on your trip
I don't even know where to buy one of those and how many CCs are they? I can't go over 49 CCs.
