Issue with pitbike. Possibly clutch?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, doing a rebuild on a Stomp 125 pitbike just for a bit of fun and something to do on the nights when I'm bored! Before I started the project I had a quick ride around outside the garage and noticed something odd. The bike would ride mint, however when I wanted to give it some and got passed around 1/2 throttle in 1st gear, it almost felt like I was hitting a rev limiter and the bike would just scream but not move until I shifted up to second if that makes sense? I'm wondering if this could maybe be a slipping clutch that needs adjusting? If anyone that has experienced this could give me some ideas it would be appreciated!

In common with many pit bikes this has a four stroke engine with a forward facing horizontal cylinder that is based on the C90 Honda Cub. It has a manually operated gear box and a wet multi plate clutch. Sounds like a simple case of worn out clutch plates so buy some new ones , soak them in oil and install. You might be wise to get a clutch cover gasket as well must in case the old one falls apart.
