    Welcome aboard.

    Sorry I don't have any kind of answer for you. I'm not familiar with that motor.

    But someone will come along with something.

    well -- hope that your clutch is adjusted right
    if not it's probably to late for that one

    always when clutch is released -- should at least be a little slack in cable

    as we ride those things

    I am also sorry about that Roger
    I just took it for granted that you had a standard clutch

    anyway -- time to pull an inspection of your centrifugal clutch
    maybe a spring broke -- popped off or worn someTHING out

    I also at this time have a centrifugal set up
    I try to go easy on it with the take offs from stop
    and help it up hills
    trying not to have excessive slipping

    don't want to wear that thing out

    just learned a stronger spring will make it slip less found a spring at scooter parts depot .com
