Yup, I've tried that. Occasionally the back wheel will just skid when I engage the motor. Most of the time, I engage the motor and can hear the piston moving, but it doesn't sound like anything is combusting, and the bike just grounds to a halt from the friction.

I looked at the magnet, but was unable to get it off - torquing the bolt over the magnet just turns the whole assembly, even if I hold the back wheel and chain fixed.
