Thanks for the advice. I bought it brand new last year. Maybe has 5 miles on it if that
Oh ok...That's what I originally thought but wasn't sure....That transmission kinda threw me off...
Now that Im on a better mode of viewing your pics and a couple RedBulls..lol..It looks like it has too much oil inside of it too by all that black behind the bell also to mention its from an X1 pocketbike and needs to be mounted horizontally to keep seepage to a minimal....
Take some 100 grit sandpaper and clean up all that mess inside the bell and hit the gook with brakeparts cleaner......
Looking at the clutchspring it looks like its stretched on there pretty tight too and judging by the thickness of pad material left you should buy a new clutch as yours looks like its past its half-life already
I don't know how much you know about springs but a spring that's at its relaxed point should exhibit only a certain tension pressure while the spring coils appear to be relaxed with very minimal spread.
The way your spring is stretched looks like it engages at like 6 grand.....Now I know why youre happy with the engine the way it is...It appears to be a 43cc 40mm bore engine and engaging the clutch that high would cure any sluggish takeoff problems relating the engine being severely underpowered for anything rideable....LOL..
It looks like a Chinese kid put a steel clutch spring on an aluminum clutch....Once you get the clutch engagement in the right zone youll notice the takeoff deficiency a lot more...Ö.
The pic on the left is a new clutch....Middle pic clutch is smoked ;-no pads left and Right pic is a 3 shoe clutch mod where 1 shoe is missing a pad after1 ride.....LOL
