Default Re: New Guy from Chicagoland

Welcome to the forum. Since the kick back 2 speed has a coaster brake, a motor sprocket should attach as it would with a single speed coaster hub.
Attaching the kit sprocket to a coaster brake hub can sometimes require some bending of the brake arm. Some coaster hubs require the dust cover be ground down a bit for a good sprocket fit.
My Shimano coaster required no mods for sprocket installation. I did have to use a couple of the flat coning wrenches.
You should be able to attach the motor sprocket to your KB hub with simple tools like a couple of crescent wrenches and a file if needed.
I visited Chicago this summer for the first time. It was Lullapaloosa (sp?) weekend so the waterfront was packed. I'd love to spend more summer vacations there.
