    First the clutch is sticking idk what I should do with that yet but it will be running fine when all the sudden it will gradually slow down will only let me hit the gas on low throttle so when I finally pull on it it just barks and dies slowly

    not sure what you mean, but first I'd properly adjust clutch

    could be that it's seizing due to the extra high compression (which causes it to run hot) and too lean a fuel mixture.
    Take the head off and see if there' streaks of aluminum on the cylinder.
    sp1ke and Luybaton like this.

    sounds way to lean put needle up / clip down in the carb and as jag says is compression ok head off check piston and look for signs of warping and is there a air leak causing a lean mix ? the spark plug colour
    will also tell you a lot
  7. Man your clutch plate is filthy clean it and how did you get the clutch arm to swing that far over did not see a cable to it the arm should be parrale to the the edge of your clutch housing something is really out of wack. If its grinding then it most likely mean metal against medal you had your clutch out of position and you burned your clutch pads off and they need to be replace from the picture I would say you don't have them. Take a phillips undue the tiny screw either use needle nose pliars or a screw driver with a small mallet bang the pedal nut reverse remove the the clutch look at it compare your pads with replacement pads on Ebay pictures.
  8. I can't tell by the picture but the only way you can get that arm to swing that far is that the barrel is missing its small stud about half inch long by 3/8" that goes in a pit in the center of your clutch that the armature pivots on that is half shave flat. Cuz I can't pull that armature that far by my own hand its tuff real strong.
