Well that's disappointing

Ordered a few different 2 stroke china girl kits. One from ZedaMotorsports(still waiting on that one), one from eBay that I'm having some good luck with, and one from CaliforniaMotorbikes that I'm having a huge headache over.
The clutch pads are already worn out. In fact, I had to tighten the flower nut down to a ridiculous level and got about 1/8th of a mile before I lost all grip. I guess they got grease on them and burnt up. Killed the engine before I did any further damage and pedaled back home. After taking the flower nut out and looking at the pads, they look smoothed over and have an oily feel to them. Ordering some pads on eBay and I'll update as I go. For the short time I actually got to ride under power, the "Wildcat" kit was really dang fast for an engine that isn't even barely broken in.

I think the damage might have already been done. I have to tighten the flower nut so far that I don't even have enough throw room for the clutch lever to work properly. I'll try your fix anyways because I have nothing to lose and everything to gain, though. Thanks for the advice!
