Sorry my bad.....Never seen a centrifual HT before. where do you get those? Maybe the standard puller that comes with the kits fits it? Is it threaded inside?

Looks like a centrifugal clutch to me. Very similar to the 4 stroke type. I think it might be the wet variety from looking at what appears to be a drain plug near the bottom of the main gear housing. I'm not familiar with the disassembly of this setup. Hope the above links for help given by the other members are useful.

After taking a closer look I don't think my link's will help....I've never seen that clutch before

But yes it look's like you will need a puller similar to the pic below...

A little more info on your motor, maybe I can find something about your clutch.

Have you contacted livefast about the proper way to remove it?

My guess is the puller should work if its threaded inside the hole but a call or email to the seller would save lots of guessing.
