It's available now at 2Wheelhobbies.com for $43.99, and comes with a gold, silver, or red rear sprocket. 2Wheelhobbies also has the pinned layshaft in stock ($4.79).

ill prob just get the lay shaft and the new sprocket for the pin setup, nothing wrong with my chain or rear sprocket, ill put the money i save towards the E-gyro

Excellent. Thanks Chris. What will the E-Gyro be worth as an upgrade to an existing 450?

It will make it a totally diff bike , it's going to have constant stability bc the motor runs continuously, and you can run at low speeds now, no more gears and all that stuff goin on in the rear, and less drag

Why would they make the lay shaft with the pin avalible to buy, but not have the new gear needed to go with the shaft . Atleast we know we have it coming and between the new shaft and the E-gyro we should have a pretty solid and reliable bike that will be even more of a blast to run with out the extra worries

I have almost 1 hour on the set, and they are holding up great -- a little stretching after the first run, and the sprockets show only cosmetic wear.
Picture of back wheel or it didnt happen!

So if you break a pin you don't have to buy a whole new shaft etc.?...that's genius...tt could learn a few things from Chris/venom ..lol

I changed it to pin drive on the VMX to get rid of the set screw and related issues. It works great and the reliability so far has been perfect. We have abused the bikes with zero failures from the pin or shaft.
I would imagine this aftermarket sprocket should see the same results.

If you think your chain is stretched first check the rear axle and swing arm shaft. If they are bent the chain tension will slacken making you think the chain has stretched. These simple chains have a higher tensile strength than these bikes can produce so usually its worn sprockets or bent shafts to look out for.
