    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:

    Here's the current link: http://motorizedbikeforum.the-talk....6cc-70cc-80cc-pull-start-pedal-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,
