    You're saying that when you push on the end of the shaft, that the roller and clutch bell are moving in and out?

    Who made the kit? (Does it have Staton-Inc engraved on the side of the channel?)

    Is the channel made of steel or aluminum?

    If the whole crank shaft is moving doesnt that mean that the bearing is worn out or can you tighten the whole crank shaft. On mine if the shaft does that it means that the engine is worn out and bout to blow. I like my kit cause it doesnt have the clutch or all those brackets or bearings..just a drive wheel and an engine that can slide on and off your bike within ten seconds..Good luck i havent had to much experiance with those engines check your bearing.

    Don't those steel channel F/D kits use a lock ring on the end of the shaft? If it does maybe it just needs to be adjusted and tightened. Lock ring will be on the opposite side of the clutch side and 1 or 2 hex bolts tightening it down.

    That motor exploded didn't it? Were the bolts holding it tight? Is the crank shaft locked up? Are the f/d bearings locked up? I wonder what caused that and that is a dax kit by looking at the slots for the motor to mount. Even if the clutch came apart it should have been contained in the bell and maybe broke the c/s............sorry for your loss bro.

    My sons friction drive bike has that engine. It has been reliable and the power is about what I expected - decent. It's not quite as powerful as my Mitsubishi TLE43. Over the last year or so, he had to buy a new air cleaner housing because the old one vibrated off and was lost, and a new pull start mechanism. Maybe the pull starter could have been fixed, but they are cheap on ebay and time is money. Oh yeah, he had one bolt lost too and I put in a new Allen headed one and cranked it down good. The engine does vibrate some, but less than an in frame China Girl 66cc disposable engine. The engine itself has been solid and never let him down.
