Re: been working on this thing for 3 weeks bout to give up chain and sprocket issue
Sometimes the clutch is "stuck" from being engaged since birth so you really need to spin engine over hard & fast to "break" it loose. If you do this with clutch disengaged and spark plug removed, you want to make sure the CDI is DISCONNECTED, blue & black wires. It is rumored that spinning engine over with spark plug out or wire off plug (ungrounded) will blow the CDI, no one has explained why however. Error on the safe side.
