Default Re: Some help with centrifugal clutch install

Any loc-tite (or any substance for that matter) between the clutch hub and shaft will ruin the physical ability of the tapers to lock together.
Considering the real possibility that the tapers may not match up correctly, you can try loc-tite if you want to but I have found empirically that any material what so ever that can wear or compress over time will do so and the assembly will come loose. Usually at the most inopportune time like when you are in the middle of a long ride and far from help. A cel phone can alleviate this problem a little bit though.
