    Just curious cause i've been reading a lot of different threads on engine maintenance like putting oil in the clutch? I didn't even know we were supposed to do that but does anyone know how and when were supposed to do that and does anyone else have any other maintenance tips they do.

    Do NOT put oil in your clutch on a 2 stroke 48 / 66 cc motor.

    The small bevel gear on the crankshaft should be lightly greased and
    rotated so the clutch gear is greased too.

    I check the torque on headbolts now.. grease chain everytime you head out. Check air pressure. General once over.. give yourself 5-10 minutes of precheck before going out. Usually 5 minutes is good.
