Default Re: Centrifugal Clutch Option?

Very true. Morini engines have an oil bath transmission and the clutch is very much exposed to the oil.
The OP started this thread concerning the Chinese 2 stroke centrifugal which seem to not have a chance in he!! if they get slightly wet. Also consider that the unlike the Morini engine, the Chinese transmission is not a oil bath type but rather a greased type. The grease must be replenished on a frequent basis, and if too much is used then the stock clutch and some times the centrifugal clutch as well may become contaminated with grease. If this happens then you must partially dis-assemble them and clean them thoroughly.
