Default Re: Top Speed

Hi 5-7. Yep, chainsaws have a robust centifugal clutch that lock up pretty tight at the set speed. I simply rev the bike up, let off the gas and shift. It works pretty smoothly. The only catch is there is no engine braking, when you let off you are basically freewheeling like you would be on a single speed bike with an automatic clutch. My Hueng Sheng 4 stroke is the same way. It's something you just have to get use to. What is your ride?
