    How durable is the clutch in the chinese HT kits?
    I have been starting from a stop (flat ground) by revving it up a bit, and easing out the clutch. Same as I do on my car. But a car is meant for that, and the clutch will last over 100,000 miles if taken care of.

    What about with these HT engines? up hill I give it a bit of pedaling to help it out, but will I wear out the clutch starting from a dead stop? Same as my car, I start with the engine at the lowest possible RPM without it stalling to save wear.

    I start like that, it does wear the clutch fatser, but your clutch also is adjustable so you can recover from a worn clutch.
