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.

It came all together I can see the rings through the carb port

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
