Default Re: How to pedal with NO added motor xmission loss/drag?

ALL of the above compromises would be dealt with using a small manual PTO clutch. I've called a dozen clutch manufacturers and sprocket manufacturers and have been met with mostly stunned silence. This animal just does not seem to exist. A small clutch with bell, swage plate, thrust bearing, and cable attachment is certainly not unconcievable. Unfortunately, it's beyond my own machining skills and for some damn reason, totally unheard of.. anywhere on earth!!!! It's built into manual xmission motorcycles by the millions, but unavailable as a separate unit. God this is frustrating.
