I had a 2 stroke 66cc and sold it I bought a 4 stroke kit I'v put on 40ish Miles on the engine now but I feel that the clutch is slipping. Is this normal ?

I always peddle to get it up to speed anyway but it will not move from a stopped position when I get up to top speed it seem to rev high but it lacks
a little speed. I know the 66cc 2 stroke will be faster that a 4 stroke.

Doen the clutch need to be bedded in ?
Can I tighten up the clutch ?

Hi Scol,

It's kind of late and you probably got your answer ages ago. But here is my two cents for people who might have the same issue:

A 2 stroke engine would have roughly twice the power (those little horsies in your engine that turn the gears) of a 4 stroke engine of the same cylinder volume. So, your issue might not be a clutch slip but moving from a high power engine to a low power one. I never rode a 2 stroke, but my 4 stroke needs pedaling when climbing steep hills. If you need to pedal while on a flat road though, then your clutch might need to be adjusted.

There is a special wrench for that, which might have come with your kit. It looks like a small sickle. If not, you can buy one from various online sites. There are videos on youtube that shows how to open up the clutch and use the wrench.

I hope this helps.
