If I am going up a hill, I can pull from 3mph and it will stay engaged as long as the load exists, but then starts the chatter again if not going faster.

Does anyone know if there is a way to change this except going to a smaller roller? My wife is heavy and rides slow (10-15mph).
I dunno, man. I have gear and shift kit with OEM spring on my Tanaka 47R engine. My clutch also chatters at low speed.
