    Some of you may know my story, but for those that don't, the short story is that I have a Dax/Titan kit and have recently received a new engine. I took the old gearbox from the old engine and have put it on the new engine. The problem is, the clutch seems to *always* be engaged. If the bike moves, the engine wants to go with it.

    What could be wrong?!? I've taken the gearbox on and off a number of times, but that didn't make any difference. The gearbox turns freely and worked fine on the last engine with no issue. Help!!

    Chinese or not, I wouldn't put it past user error just yet. I sent a note to Dax, so we'll see.

    Are you the guy who had his bike fall over?
    The clutch bell is probably out of true or even bent.

    Yes, I'm the guy with the bike that fell over. However, Dax and I worked out a deal for a new engine sans gearbox. The new engine came with a new clutch assembly. Dax has the new clutch assembly now. I'm waiting for a new one. --John

    When I first got mine, I took the clutch pads out and lubed the pins they move on. That helped. Plus I think he has newer springs.
    Let us know how the new clutch works.

    I didn't start the new engine. I was only installing it and trying to get everything dialed in before I filled it with oil and tried it out. The bike wouldn't roll, as expected, so I figured something was wrong. -- John
