Default Re: Thinking about a bumble bee

So if I get this right: friction drives have a centrifugal clutch so when I stop my bike at a stop light, the motor still runs but the roller stops moving on its own power. Does it still spin? Is that why I have to disengage the Bumble bee? I may not be using the right words but im wondering if I can let up on the throttle and coast without lifting the roller off the tire. Do all engines have clutches? (ie a weed wacker engine).
So many questions, I know. I'm really enjoying learning about this stuff. This is a great forum.
