You asked for our advice ...
but then refused to take it!
Instead, you hunted around, on your own, and decided to purchase an incompatible motor, against the advice of everyone.
If you ask for our advice, then refuse to take it ... how can we be to blame?
Just so there's some clarity on this "Einstein" crap. . .
Have you looked at your new motor?
It should a have an 11 tooth sprocket of #25 chain type on it ... already ...
You have decided to purchase an 80 tooth #25 chain type sprocket, to attach to your wheel ...
You will also need to purchase #25 type chain ... to connect them!
And that is a perfectly true statement. Even I, who says most common sense is wrong, have to admit you're not likely to find one of those motors on eBay that isn't coming with an 11t #25 on it. Not that there's any sign that you have some sort of chain mismatch, I'm not understanding that gripe, but then not understanding you is a normal thing.
So you won't take advice on parts but don't think you're to blame for buying whatever you want to buy despite warnings. You know, with that sort of logic breakdown I don't think it's possible to get through to you. Every comment was that this won't work, with you insisting it HAD to because that's what you HAD to have. Hence my reference to Socialism. If that plate you put together flexes it'll cause the no longer aligned motor pinion to be angled and cause a grinding noise, the friction will slow the bike down. Whose fault would THAT be? Not anyone on this board. I see no sign in your pictures that you did a "Perfect job."
It's the rare "Fancy Build" on this board. Dang, wish there WERE more. We ooh and ahh like if someone showed up with the Porsche 908 that Steve McQueen won the P2 class with at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1970. Doesn't mean we're going to have one. You have a lot more people cobbling together things they got free and/or had laying around.
For all your squawk about not being rich it sounds like you spent more than it would have cost to just get the proper motor we told you to get. That settles that. Blind ambition.

I want to persue other projects such as an electric front wheel drive 2 seater trike and eventually a 10 killowatt recumbent drag racing bike. If i were just another e bike owner then I would be happy just bolting something in that would work without any modifications. where is the challenge in that.
That must be SOME SSi benefit you get. I'm more accustomed to people in the mental health board and care that takes 75% of their check and someone like me running a clothes donation program outfits them. Poverty ain't what it used to be.

Are you telling us this to PROVE your point about your good judgement? You don't actually know where DrkAngel lives out there, right? you think maybe this woman is actually afraid you're going to take it out on her? Why do I get the feeling she's grown accustomed it it, Mr. Tyranny of the Weak? I was a volunteer socialworker, I've grown accustomed to helpless guys who can still manage to whip the wives who take care of them with the buckle end of the belt. You sure sound like one of those.
(Sunder, forget what I said. Rip into the guy. Although you have to admit I was right about there's no point.)
