Re: New Rider questions
Welcome to the forum, I have two 48cc two stroke bikes that carry me very well and I weigh 210lbs. The gears don't have anything to do with the engine chain unless you add a shift kit from a place like sick bike parts, sbp is a vendor on the side of this page. You will probably want a dual brake lever for the right side so you can have just the clutch lever on the left. I get about 31 to 32 wide open on flat ground with a stock 44 tooth sprocket, you will have to pedal some on steep hills. Only someone that knows these engines can tell the difference, all48 engines have 6mm head studs and all newer 66 engines have 8mm studs.
Your results may not be the same,Greg
