Default re: motorized bicycle 44 to 36 tooth sprocket swap

I bought a grubee skyhawk kit with a 44 tooth included. Can a 36tooth from another supplier fit the existing washers and stuff, or can I use another washer/bolt/cog kit with this engine, as long as it takes the wide 1x1 chain?

I got my motor from Bike Berry and all looks well, fast shipping. But their site doesn't show a smaller cog. Maybe they sell a larger engine cog.

You could email Bike Berry and ask.
Otherwise most other suppliers sell 36T, zoom have 40T flat sprockets. (I have one here, not fitted yet.)
I can personally recommend zoombicycles, dax or Rock Solid Engines from experience, otherwise try the sponsor sites on the left, or, for fancier stuff, try:-
MANIC Mechanic Parts.htm

Ok, I'll try BBerry. Maybe they have more stuff than the site shows.

First I'll just get it running with the stock stuff and the adapter gear, then maybe I'll just save and buy the optional hub and cog (I can build wheels if I can get good info on spoke lengths I think DT has a online calculator for almost anything made)

There are significant variations in hole position. Donuts and crescent washers are not always interchangeable among sprockets. I have 3 different incompatible types.
