    Have the standard chinese 10 tooth that came with kit. Am looking for 8 or 9 tooth (if the exist) as I want lower speed for steeper hills and bumpy backroads hauling a trailer. Haven't found much yet looking around. Thanks.

    Yeah, had planned on doing a jackshaft kit, but then got talked out of it, or at least convinced to give the typical install a try first. Too fast for what I need. Reccomendations on a kit to best fit the standard 66cc 2-stroke?

    The only jackshaft kits worth buying are from www.sickbikeparts.com
    Do not buy a chinese knock off kit.

    That was my plan all along. Probably get their 9 tooth jackshaft gear and then small front chainring (24 tooth I think) and see if I can fit their Shimano megadrive (with that super low gear) on my rear. Hopefully all that low gearing will get me at a good RPM range doing 3-8 mph towing a heavy trailer on old 4WD roads, some parts fairly steep. Any thoughts here would be appreciated. Thanks for your advice so far guys.
