Default Re: help on motor clutch and kill switch?!?!

Here is a wiring diagram for you. I'm not a fan of using the white wire for anything. Insulate it so it can't come in contact with any metal then use the method in the diagram.

Now for the clutch. You probably don't have the clutch cable tight enough. You want no slack at the end of the cable at the engine. It needs to be snug, night tight, but snug. The clutch spring is stronger than most newbies think and takes more force to disengage the clutch than you'd assume. Try wrapping a rag around the clutch actuator arm on the engine and pressing it inward, toward the engine with all your strength. Sometimes the clutch pads are stuck and will require a little work to get them to free up. Try adjusting the cable first then get back to us if it doesn't work.
