whats my diagnosis

ok when my 2000 targa lx is cold the back wheel doesnt spin freely like it should but it has full power and will accelerate and hit top speed but after warming up the back wheel spins freely but has no aceleration and top end. i made a previously post about a clacking sound fromk either the transmission and or the cylinder. if it helps any my setup is completely stock except for no air filter but i still have the air box and a 57 jet plus the biturbo.o yeah i got 11,700 miles on it i plan on getting a new complete motor whenver i figure out where to get it

when oil gets cold, it becomes thick. this will retard the free spinning of your wheel when its cold. but as it heats up it becomes thin. and this will alow the wheel to spin freely, but if the oil is too thin, you may have clutch problems. the parts will move a lot more freely and noises will occur. the trick is finding an oil with the right viscosity at all temps.

Re: whats my diagnosis

what would u recomend since ive heard u are the king at moped repairs. right now i got typical atf type f in there

Re: whats my diagnosis

that is one i recommend, or dexron III. both are good but the type f is more abrasive and will cause faster clutch wear. just make sure your level is correct.

Re: whats my diagnosis

also through first gear it runs perfect meaning quick accel. but when it hits 2nd it loses it

the only thing that could affect the engines performance when it shifts into second gear is something in the clutch or 2nd gear shaft. maybe its binding up?
