    Ok.... Now go to the other side of the engine & take off the large side cover (with 5 screws) & tell us exactly what you see spinning when you roll the bike.

    The big gear and the small gear and the clutch plate. I can hear the Piston pumping

    If all those are turning, then there's nothing wrong with the clu!!!! (If you pull the clutch lever in, those shouldn't be turning)


    If the piston is moving up & down too easy?, then you have a lack of compression... (which is a completely different issue from the clutch)!!

    That's what I was starting to think. How do I fix the compression? Any ideas

    Did you by chance have to put the piston and cylinder on? If so double check your work. It almost sounds like it doesn’t have rings on the piston.

    You're no supposed to be able to turn the engine over with your fingers, there definitely something wrong.

    I agree Im new to these engines. I'm not sure how to fix it. But I'd like to try instead of replacing it

    Pull the cylinder off and see if the rings are broke, be careful with the bottom gasket and you can reuse it.

    Rings are fine everything looks normal inside. I don't get it. I ordered new rings just to try
