Default Re: Clutch help

I'm curious. You said "the motor started right up" then you go on to say, " the motor put out too much torque for the clutch".

What do you mean by "too much torque" ? If the engine started, how did you start it? By pedaling and engaging the clutch? If so, the clutch must have held tight enough to turn the crankshaft. What are the sypmtoms you are having? Does the clutch slip after the bike is rolling and you apply power? If this is the case then I'm going back to the clutch pads slipping when hot. That is due to oil/glaze.
Do you know the proper procedures for adjusting the flower nut? There are several good tutorials here for doing that.
