Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

It sounds like the flower nut needs to be adjusted.
Also be positive that there is no oil or grease residue anywhere in the clutch assembly. Outer plate, friction pads, inner plate, ect.
If the friction pads are not worn out you can also adjust the internal clutch spring to apply more pressure to the pads when the clutch is engaged (hand lever released).

Readjusting the cable and arm is only "the tip if the iceberg" concerning what you can do with these clutches.
