Default Re: eho35 and others.. Does the clutch go bad often?

Hi Happy Valley, Some of these guys trying to get a John Deer quality hp from a little, almost toy like engine to do heavy duty chores. The components in my opinion, are just not that industrial, to allow day after day hauling of rider and goods on all types of roads and grades. My experience has been that running a 40T with an 80cc at 20 mph when approaching an small incline the bikes speed drops of immediately my weight being 185lbs. Does this sound as though it would have any chance of real pulling power from a dead stop. You have to put at the very least a 50T sprocket to engage in this farmer like hauling set up of 300lbs.
