    Cool, where'd you find that?

    Nice vids Patani, but he never really shows how he get's it going, so its hard to say. With a centrifical you normally have to have a pull start. How does he start it?

    Some of the centrifugal clutches have a spring on them that wraps around the shaft. Is acts like a one way clutch and allows you to bump start the engine.
    Some folks have no problems with them. I do not trust the thing and removed my centrifugal clutch completely.

    scratg I found the twist grip clutch on e-bay from boygofast item# 170412014860. As for starting the motor. You either bump start it with the regular clutch or you need the pull start. Like I said in my other post the pull start is not mandatory. What I think you guys are overlooking is the old clutchpack is still in the motor. The centrifugal clutch is in addition to the clutch.

    No overlooking here. I still have my old centi. clutch but much prefer the manual clutch.
