Hey guys I rode my latest build for the first time today and ran into a few problems first problem was the motor seemed to be shaking for some reason and then I always had to pedal to get the bike going or it will just vibrate the whole bike violently I dont know if its the way the throttle is set up or if the clutch isn't grabbing but my exhaust wrap did its job. And so did the clutch cover that I bolted on. I noticed the chain was much looser after riding too. Top speed was probably 30-35 ran 91 gas and ngk plug I noticed a noise coming from the engine that wasn't the clutch kind of a clunking sound maybe just the gears? You have to pedal it to get up a hill or the bike will just sit there. Also the grip for the throttle became unglued on the aluminum piece.

Huh I've never ran the clutch except for today so it's brand new ran the bike about a half an hour maybe different springs would help? Maybe a better clutch it's the 5/8 clutch that gasbike.net sells.
