Unhappy Yo, Canadian New Guy.

I purchased a Grubee skyhawk 48cc Kit last month. Boy, has it been fun and eventful.

Took me about 4 hours to install on the bike. All went to together pretty easy. I did have a missing clutch cable brass thingy; no prob, just fabed one up. But, on my first outing, the chain jumped off the rear sprocket and totaled the spokes. A week later I re-installed the rear sprocket on a new tire and rim. (no injuries)

Outing number 2 was a bust too. Not exactly sure what happened but in split seconds I was skidding across the pavement. Scraped up the elbow and triceps area pretty good, as well as my right hip.(note to self- buy elbow pads). ribs are sore too.

Thing is, somewhere upon impact with the ground, I broke the small bevel drive gear, but not the housing. After some searching, I found a replacement from one of the online bike websites. ($5)

I was just wondering if this is common for critical parts to break? And where do you guys go to get replacement parts?

Thanks for the forum.

Peace and happy trails. hahaha
