    I just bought a 80cc kit i want to install on my mountain bike. The kit has a twist grip throttle. However my bike has a twist grip gear changer. Has anyone ever encountered this issue and if so what did you do to get around that?

    Looking forward to building this new machine

    You can use an old thumb shifter as a throttle.
