Looks like a centrifugal clutch to me. Very similar to the 4 stroke type. I think it might be the wet variety from looking at what appears to be a drain plug near the bottom of the main gear housing. I'm not familiar with the disassembly of this setup. Hope the above links for help given by the other members are useful.

After taking a closer look I don't think my link's will help....I've never seen that clutch before :confused:

But yes it look's like you will need a puller similar to the pic below...

A little more info on your motor, maybe I can find something about your clutch.

My guess is the puller should work if its threaded inside the hole but a call or email to the seller would save lots of guessing.

That is really cool. Have not seen a clutch like that b4. Is it possible it is a DIY wonder? Really is great food for thought.

The centrifugal clutch that I got from ZoomCycles came with a special 'puller'
It threads into the threaded hole in the centrifugal clutch and the end presses against the crankshaft, and as you turn the bolt, the clutch will pop off.
