Default Re: Basic clutch operationg procedures...

I rarely use the pedals after starting the bike. I do have the 66/80CC though. I will use the pedals if taking off uphill, just a few turns. But other than that, I ride it like a motorcycle. Of course this means I will be replacing my clutch pads sooner, but their only about $10 and easy to replace. I've been riding my bike for almost a year with not even a clutch adjustment so far. I can't promise you this kind of luck, just saying.
So, the only time I pull in the clutch is for stops or moving so slow the engine bogs. I've been riding M.B's for about 9 years or so and doing it this way from the begining. I HAVE AN ENGINE, I DON'T PEDAL.(unless I have to.)
