Default Re: I greased my centrifugal clutch

The bushing must be oiled, not greased. After reassembly oil the bushing once in two hours. I do this after the ride, as the oil needs time to penetrate. A heavier spring will make it slip more. The engine will rev up to almost lockup rpm and the bike will start moving. When it locks up the engine will then continue to rev. You want it to be able to lockup, so keep the shoes and drum clean.
