And if so, did you leave it on for easier starting? I'm working on a design that allows pedal starting with a Comet Torque-a-verter. If I can perfect it, it would make my life a lot better when I get a Comet on one of my bikes. I don't mind a pull rope so much until I kill the motor and can't bump or pedal start it. Right now my bike just has an autoclutch with a one-way bearing. Works great but I'm stuck with limited torque range. Let me know what you think. Dale.
I have no plans to install a recoil starter on it, kinda like the rope a dope way of starting it. It has no compression release on this motor, its easy to start since this is a low compression motor to start with.

I am not sure if you can get the coment clutch to work with might be a first. The CVT that I have is a GTC brand, works good for now...I think you will really like the operation of the CVT.
