Default Re: What happened?

Here's what's up. I opened up the clutch plate and and loosened the clutch. Everything seemed fine after that. The "cough" that the spinning the back tire gave to the motor was back. I was able to turn the bike on and ride for a couple miles or so. Then the problem came back but this time removing the clutch didn't solve the problem at all.

I opened up the plates as you guys said and yeah, all the gears are moving accordingly. It's that "cough" that I'm missing to turn the thing on. It sort of coughs when I move it slowly but when I move it quickly it just gives me steady resistance.

So I have to figure this out. Am I using the bike properly? Aren't I supposed to grab the clutch to idle at street lights and stuff?
