Default Re: What kit/engine to buy for fairest price?

Correction is in order here:

Engaged, means the clutch lever is not pulled (un-squeezed).

Disengaged, means the clutch lever is pulled in, (squeezed)

Engaged: Coupled, together, made as one unit.

Disengaged: Separated, apart, divided into different sections or units.

When the clutch is 'engaged' the clutch friction surfaces are forced 'together' making their movements as one.

When the clutch is 'disengaged' the friction surfaces are moved 'apart' 'separated' and movement as a unit is halted.

Why are these terms so often misunderstood and misquoted?
