Default Re: Best motor to buy?

well my main issue is that I have a full suspension bike... so I am not sure if I can chain drive, rear mount the 2-stroke Dax engine, because the throttle and/or clutch cable might be short!

I was also thinking of just using a homelite weed whacker motor 26cc, but I hear a lot about shafts breaking off! Plus I am not sure if I want to do "Friction Drive" because of excessive tire wear.

I've also heard of chain driven weed whackers also have a tendency to have the shaft break. I think one thing that I can't find is a good tutorial. So in my efforts to make this bike I think I will make a tutorial as well (video and pics).
