From my experience with this make sure the top 3 alan keys on top are tighten1.png

then on your clutch bell make sure that it's not warped in any way cause i got one that was

also make sure your belt isn't to tight, slowly loosen the belt(not too loose) and see if you can freely spin your tire with hand with easy if so try again

Don't know what you mean. Try loosening the belt with the tool that came with the kit it shouldn't be too tight just snug.

Sounds like the clutch is binding up. Mine did that too out of the box, I had to put stronger springs in the clutch. Bell was okay, but broke later and had to be replaced. Been holding up 8 years now.

I don't have any hands-on experience with the tapered-shaft clutch, but it looks pretty straightforward. Check to make sure your bell can spin around the clutch. Clutch bells can be out of round and clutches can be defective.

All signs of something in your clutch system binding. When you're off the bike and it is running, does it want to pull on it's own? If so, you maybe have 1 weak spring on your clutch, making one shoe grab a little bit. Without a freewheel on your transmission output, everything to the clutch bell will spin when you pedal the bike with engine off. If it can't spin, you obviously have a clutch system issue.

that would work but one problem, the type of clutch he runs does not use a spring

I have an idea. Oil your oilite bushing (the bronze "spacer" that the bell rides on the shaft with). If that thing seizes to the shaft and bell it will bypass the clutch. If this is the case, I hope your shaft is ok.
