Thanks, Tyler. I always hesitate advocating a new builder get into the clutch side until he/she has a good understanding of how the clutch works.

Probably at least eight times out of ten when a new builder has the problem the OP has it's because the clutch cable is too loose. Most of them underestimate how much force is required to disengage the clutch on a Chinese 2 stroke and fail to set the cable tension tight enough or if they get it right, the cable will stretch and the clutch goes out of adjustment within the first few miles.

The tutorial I posted for him should explain what he needs to do.
