    I recently bought a 1999 Whizzer and spent the weekend getting it running, the issue is I don't fully understand the tension release/clutch (the leaver on the left). I am able to start the bike just fine but pulling that lever so that I can set the bike down without it launching off takes a ton of force. I have to put both hands on the lever just to fully pull it. Is this a fixable problem and does anyone know what to do to make it easier?

    Hi,and welcome to Whizzer!
    The clutch handle is to short. You can get a new longer one from Whizzer Paul

    Remove both belts and chain, adjust the primary belt first, pull it back and forth make it so it's not hard. They adjust the rear wheel to belt so that it doesn't pull the primary belt to much. Reinstall chain.
    Keep us posted!

    Thanks for such a detailed response! I will try that as soon as a warm enough day comes around.
