Default Re: What kind of kit is reliable

Just a side note as of now Dax don't have a mounting kit for that 9 HP so you are on your own mounting it...he has made that very clear so ya don't order it by mistake.

As far as friction drives bein the same amount of work as a chain ya gotta take the back wheel off & mount the rag-joint sprocket, chain tensioner, get it aligned right or throw chains off left & right and let's not forget mount the engine that can't be made to fit every bike frame out there. I'm not meaning to be rude or anything but a friction drive fits almost every bike made without any mods or alignment problems much less mounting a sprocket perfectly centered with absolutely no wobble on a rubber rag joint (the reason I only use the inner rag joint). Friction drives are not much more than mounting a rack on the back of a bike.
