With the chinagirls/hts, You need the mechanical clutch to start the motor and to disengage it when stopped at say a stop light or what have you. In wanting to use a CVT, it would have neutral but no way to start it. Simple, tried and true. Will have to open up the housing tomorrow and see if there is room. Would be mighty tight though.
Maybe off the forward shaft on the CVT? Run the shaft from the left side, between the rear wheel and the seat post to the right side and mount a pull start just below the seat so as to allow the peddles to clear....
Sounding good in my sleep deprived lil brain, what am I missing?
I KNOW IVE SEEN THE PULL STARTS THAT REPLACE THE MAGNETO COVER. AND I SWEAR FOR THE LIFE OF ME IVE SEEN A HT WITH AND ENLANGED CLUTCH COVER , LIKE THERE MAY HAVE BEEN A CENTRUFIGAL CLUTCH UNDER THE COVER............MAYBE IT WAS A DREAM . SO YOU COULD PULL START IT CUZ ITS IN NEUTRAL UNLESS YOU GIVE IT GAS. YOU WOULD JUST NEED A KILL SWITCHTHAT WORKS TO STOP ENGINE. OR REACH DOWN AND TURN THE IDLE SCREW IN BUT KILL SWITCH WOULD BE EASIER.
