I read in the manual (Staton friction-Robin 35) that you should always pedal to get started to keep your clutch from wearing out too fast. Do these slip clutches have a pretty long life span or do they need to be changed every once in a while?

no need to even think about changing one until
problem or problems show up

I have the same set up -- not sure how long it should last
but - I would think that the Robin has at this time a perfected clutch

these type of clutches have been around FOR A VERY LONG TIME

when I was 6 or 7 had one on a small MB with a 7 1/2 hp
this little guy -- RODE THAT THING HARD for a couple of years
never a problem

once we have gotten bicycle (pedalled) up to a little speed
then kicking in the clutch
should only be -- very slight wear -- lasting a very long time -- one would think

a way closer concern may be -- an extra spark plug
I think always nice to have an extra on hand
for my Subaru -- couldn't find one locally
ordered a couple from Station

probably won't even need one for a long time - but - just in case

3,100 miles on my Titan Clutch still going strong but worn down a little. I mean your gonna get wear. But I absolutely baby that clutch too. If I think it's slipping trying to haul my weight up an incline I'm pedaling.
My Happy Time Clutch still going strong. 2,000 miles on that engine on MOOP2.

I found my spare plug at a Harley Shop no joke.
