Centrifugal Clutch thoughts manual/ auto combo

Discussion in 'Transmission / Drivetrain' started by just for kicks, Aug 8, 2007.

  1. I was thinking about the feasability of a manual and auto clutch combo.
    I havnt thought much about it but the idea of a dual function type clutch came to mind.

    basically you'd have the standard centrifugal clutch setup with the manual clutch also there if you wanted to switch over.

    The clutch bell would do dual service and the clutch shoes for the centrifugal clutch would be tucked in behind the manual clutch shoes/pads.

    I guess I'd want it so when I pull the manual clutch lever in I could still rev up and use the auto, basically it would end up turning the manual clutch into the starting clutch.

    Whizzer offers an Autoclutch. It still allows for pedal starting. I am not sure how that works.
