440cc Rotax Go-kart

Looking at using the 440cc snowmobile engine in my garage on a street going kart.

I have both primary and secondary clutches. I want to run a chain to the axle.

the question is, what sort of axle will I need?
this engine is around 50-60hp.

can anyone show me an example?

a piece of sps round stock, i think mine was 1" 1/8 and i machined the ends down to 1 inch to fit into my pillow block bearings, this shaft is around $10 a foot, and i got it a few years ago, so it's deffinatly more now, the stuffs perfect tho, i suggest going with it.
