Re: Few newbie questions
oldpot- Yes sir, that is what I mean. As your engines' rpm increases, the clutch pads extend outward engaging the housing. The guy I got mine from wasn't using the peddles and wore the pads out getting going, I assume. Waiting on info here before I buy a replacement. I had the gearbox open to clean and inspect it, but having never seen one of these contraptions before, I could'nt tell if the pads were worn or not. Honestly they looked ok, but I don't know what I'm talking about. And I apologize if I'm boring you with things you already know- I believe you said it was your first gasbike too. This is a fun hobby, nice to know there are others. And they answer questions!
It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
