Here are some reasons why Staton Inc .manufactures the best friction drive kits:
We manufacture our drive rollers in 6 different sizes:
7/8" or .875 inch, 1.0 inch, 1-1/8" or 1.125 inch, 1-1/4" or 1.25 inch, 1-3/8" or 1.375" and a 1-1/2" or 1.50 inch OD. This offers our customers the ability to fit our kits to accommodate every engine and virtually every rider regardless of size or riding conditions. The larger the drive roller the faster your top speed, but you have less power to take off, climb hills and buck the wind.
All our friction kits come complete with everything you will need to mount our kit your vehicle. Each Staton Inc. friction drive kit contains all the parts, dual supports, hardware and complete mounting instructions; as well as some 2 stroke oil if required.
All friction drive kits require that you use a "smooth or street" style of tire so the drive roller makes good contact with the tire. A Knobby tread tire will not work very well with friction drive kits.
Front mount kits are for mostly used on trikes. If you have a trike be sure and check out the gear and chain drive kits as they mount on the rear of the trike, under the basket and drive with a chain.
So if you are the type of individual who is concerned about quality, durability, reliability, and owning the industry’s best available friction drive kit then the Staton Inc. friction drive kit was made for you.
