Default Re: Starting from stops?

Another factor to consider: 50cc motor scooters have much smaller wheels too. Look how big our 26 inchers are. That's a lot of leverage that the little HT China gurl needs to put out. You're workin' her like a slave when you try to get her to start off the line. Those little scooter wheels don't need all that, and with a centrifugal clutch (and some even have a two-speed tranny) there's no pressure.
