Re: suicide clutch concept
I'm not real sure what your goal is. Do you want the clutch to automatically disengage when you let go of the lever/bar/pedal? Sort of a 'dead man's switch? Or do you want it to engage like any clutch operating device?
Whichever, it is just a simple matter of fabricating the linkage to move or release the clutch actuator arm on the engine. As msrfan said, it would be an item of interest, especially if it was foot operated but then you'd have to devise a way to keep your feet on the pedals and a clutch pedal...too cumbersome me thinks; better stick with a lever on the tank. Good luck. Let us know what you come up with.
