    I'm guessing it has something to do with the clutch but i'm not sure...

    Its a new motor, not run in just yet.

    Okay, so i'm riding and i need to slow down for a corner.. I release my hand from the throttle and apply the clutch.. The engine does either two things. Stalls or revs out loud like it wants to keep moving? In other words it doesn't idle normally. Its just a complete engine shut down or the engine revs really bad.

    I confusing me as i never had this problem with my old motorized bike.

    If you could help please help lol

    Thanks :D

    All the clutch does is connect or disconnect the engine from the drive sprocket. If it is doing that well then there is no problem there.
    As for the revving/ dying problem I recommend first checking for air leaks around the carburetor, manifold, and crankshaft seals. Listed in order from easiest to do to hardest to do.

    Yeah loose the muffler gasket and use high temp RTV in it place also seal around the carburator inlet. This will give your motor a new attitude at life.
