Rolls but staggers and won't start

My Peugeot 103 will roll but not easily unless I remove the spark plug. This started as I was riding and let off the gas.

Re: Rolls but staggers and won't start

your clutch or your starter clutch sounds like its stuck on engage.

Re: Rolls but staggers and won't start

It doesn't have a manual clutch. Do you know a way for me to check if it's the starter clutch?

Re: Rolls but staggers and won't start

put it on the stand with the wheel off the ground. turn the pedal very slowly. if you can feel the engine trying to turn over. then your starter clutch is stuck in the engaged position.

you should have to pedal faster or kick hard to swing out the centrifugal starter clutch.

Okay. I've tried starting it more aggressively and it didn't work for me. Sounds like I'll have to take it apart and clean/lube things

Thank you all for your help! I'll give it a shot and see what I can do.
