sticking clutch arm usually means it is being pulled past its flat spot

wear usually means that it wasn't greased often enough and/or the cable & clutch adjustment didn't leave that arm free when lever was released

grease it well & be sure there is free play after adjusting and it will last a while, but new ones are fairly cheap

My latest engine came with the clutch arm incorrectly orientated on the spline - once I managed to get it off it was easy to reorientate it slightly inwards of pointing directly straight back (with the cable back on and the slack adjusted out). The way it was (pointing out diagonally between straight back and straight out to the left) it was sticky and extremely stiff.

yea this one was similar except it had the set screw that held the arm in place broken off ( easy fix got lucky enough for it to have left threads for a new one) but the clutch finnaly gave out when riding in to work got cut off buy a lady and almost t -boned her hit and rode the clutch while yelling about her not seeing me so will do with the grease till payday then gonna try to get it fixed if not just order a new motor for the newest build and keep this one to tinker with thanx for the advise on everything.
