Derbi variant tt dies at stop

Bought the TT not running. Fixed air leaks, new carb, stock kit, sidebleed estoril. Bike rips now.

When I come to a stop it dies. The piston is still compressing. It feels like the clutch is failing to disengage. Even at a low idle the engine is in a sense still connected to the rear wheel. Any help is appreciated, my guess is the starter clutch, figured I'd ask for some help before I take it apart.

Thanks.(edited)

Sounds exactly like starter shoes dragging to me.

Re: Derbi variant tt dies at stop

That's what I thought. I assume I need new springs or shoes. Is there a fix for this.

One way bearing conversion! If you're mechanically inclined, I would do it. $40 on treatland

Re: Derbi variant tt dies at stop

Yeah, I can one way bearing it. I'm more than capable of that. I didn't see a piston port one available. I'm guessing I'd have to use the Hobbit kit.

if u havnt cleaned up your starter shoes, just do it, the pins get rusty n tight.

Hrrm...that's right. I was wondering the same thing, I have a Pyramid reed I want to convert to one way bearing.

The bearing is the same, Hf1616, I think it's just a matter of spacing it correctly, hence the included bushings with the kits.
