Plz help

Can anybody tell me why my Garelli engaged the piston rod while pushing it. I noticed that before I started the top end job.

It shouldn't be doing that previous owner never finish the job and when I pick up it I notice while pushing the bike the piston rod was and still is engaged. Pics show before top end job but when removed head and cylinder head and piston I notice the piston rod is engaged all the time. Can anybody tell me how fix that

Either your clutch cable is too tight or your rubber starter clutch is swollen.

I am not familiar with Garellis but I will jump in here. I am sure there will be a better reply to follow....

Most mopeds have some kind of arrangement to disconnect the engine from the drive chain.

On some there is a button on the rear hub that you can push to disconnect things.

On others there is a lever on the rear hub or at the gearbox that you can operate to disconnect.

Do you not have the owners' manual? It should be stated in there about how to free the engine from the drive chain. If you do not have the manual you can probably download one from the 'net.

Perhaps there is a lever on the handelbars that you can pull to disconnect the drive.

Good Luck

What he said

Re: Plz help

Definitely swollen rubber clutch. Mine was so swollen the back wheel would barely roll at all.
