clutch on 80cc

I have just put a 80cc motor on my schwinn mountain bike. It is a screamin' motor, but I can't get the clutch to disengage the engine. I have taken most of the drive portion of the engine off and cannot figure out what pushes the clutch pad away from the drive gear. I think a part is missing. Any Help?

If your idle speed is too high the clutch will not disengage when the engine is running. Jim.

Thanks for the reply Jim. When the clutch lever is fully depressed the lever on the engine has nothing to push. It is like there should be a rod that is pushed to seperate the clutch pad but that piece is not there. I need an exploded view of the thing somehow. Thanks. Sean

Hey Sean, I assumed (wrong) that you have a centrifugal clutch. There are many different ways to disengage a manual clutch, what brand engine do you have?Can you post a picture? Jim.

I bought the motor form www.kingsmotorbikes.com. I am at work so I do not have a pic, but I will take one when I get home. If you look on the photos of the members and then under "customs" three down from the top is "Custom mountain bike w/ motor" My bike looks just like that one. The lever is on the left side and is supposed to disengage something by the little drive sprocket. Thanks. Sean

Jim, it looks like I am in trouble. I will try calling the seller and figure out what I can do about this problem. The motor runs great, so I would hate to take it off and start over again. Thanks for all your help Jim. Sean

Problem Solved!!!! Spit-fire.com has a parts list for these little motors and exploded views of the whole works. I needed a .45 metal rod and now it works great. They have explanations on how to adjust the clutch also, which was invaluable. Thanks for all your help Jim. Sean
