Default Re: clutch chatter

I have a Maxtorque centrifugal clutch on my bike and there has always been a little chatter. Ran the first for several years and am on my second. I tend to try to pedal up to speed a little more then get after it with the throttle. Seems to lessen the chatter for me. I don't really have any expertise with clutches, but I tend to think that trying to move me at 180lbs plus the bike is pushing the limit a bit/ Like you say, once you get going it stops, so I would just keep riding and look at it from time to time to make sure nothing is failing. I think it's the nature of the beast,
