Question Centrifugal Clutch and Pull Start issue

So i bought my engine from ebay, (not the best idea, agreed)

and it came with a cent. clutch and pull start addon preinstalled.
But the issue is that after about three runs on the bike, i accidently stalled it by covering the air intake whilst adjusting the carb. When i stalled it, the pull start cable snapped at the handle and the handle literally fell off. It was funny to say the least but i'm pretty pissed haha.

I thought to myself "No problem i prefer to bump-start mine anyway" and decided i'd purchase a manual clutch lever, rod and bucking bar setup.

But after i pulled off the cover i noticed there was no hole for a bucking bar or bearing to slot in, which kind of makes sense.

So my question is, how would i go about setting up a manual clutch lever in addition to the cent. clutch? what do i need and how do i install it? attatched are some pics.

this is the cover removed


you can see the shaft is just a straight threaded rod

Better fix your starter you ain't going to bump start it with a cent. clutch.
If you could get the correct parts you could replace the shaft and all the parts that go with it to make it a manual clutch. I think, I've never done it but I'm guessing it can be done.

Hm, the pullstart units are hunks of sh*t.
I was under the impression you could still have the manual lever to completely disengage the clutch, then drop it when peddling to engage and the cent. kicks in.

Alright, thankyou

I'm fairly certain this isn't the right forum to ask that, however if you dont have a pull start, you'd probably be better off waiting until you get one. From my understanding (and the above posts), you NEED a pull start to start the bike with a cclutch. But I'd say try posting this in the aftermarket or 2-cycle forums, but honestly, as far as I know, the aftermarket parts available for this motor (except Reed Valves) are all straight bolt-ons

Here you go on the install:

Here's how to add a lube port from Fabian. I had trouble accessing this forum, but will add a link to the cache copy:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...start-2-stroke

Here's the current link: http://motorizedbikeforum.the-talk.n...start-2-stroke

Here's a tip from Fabian on the other forum on how to make the pull-cord last longer: If you de-burr the guide where the rope runs through the housing and impregnate the starter cord with Teflon grease, you won't have any problems with cord breakage.

Good Luck,

Chris
