So if you you guys could maybe shed some light on my pinto. Hold that would be awesome. It’s all stock motor, not kitted. 12 mm bing. I have the circuit pipe for aftermarket that’s it. Well, the bike starts and idles first kick everytime. I runs and rides great, except when I have to start from a dead stop. Especially on a little up hill, the bike won’t move. The motor is working to do it but it feels like it has no power. Once you hit 10 mph it takes of and is great though. I think it may be the clutch because the back wheel spins fairly aggressively on the center stand and I got zero rev up before the clutch grabs. Weird thing is when I take the stock 2 shoe clutch out and adjust the springs, it makes no difference. Even if I turn the screws all the way in, I get no rev up before I take off. Clutch seems to be in great shape and everything is assembled in the correct order. To be clear, it doesn’t sound like the bike is bogging down like it’s not running right. You just give it full throttle from a stop and the bike just struggles to even move sometimes.
