This is my first post here.
I recently acquired a '96 Kinetic, which is in nearly perfect condition. The engine and crank case look factory new, and the body/frame seem to be in decent shape. There may be some issues with the rear gear set, as it knocks and wobbles, etc, but those can be addressed later.
I found the spring mounts in the centrifugal clutch had broken for most of the weights, so I ordered some new ones from treatland.tv (awesome suppliers, BTW!). I installed the new weights, attached the springs, they seem to operate fine, however the clutch bell still engages even at low RPM, and when I drop the bike off the kickstand, the engine stalls.
I've attached a photo. I know what the thing on the right does, but I don't know what the clutch shoes behind it do. As far as I can imagine, the clutch bell should not be spinning at all under low RPM. Should I release the clips and rebuild/lubricate the workings of the stuff on the left in the photo? I've completely rebuilt the ignition system, engine, and carburetor. The clutch seems to be the last piece of the puzzle.
Thank you for your time,
