need clutch help

Recommended Posts

I just bought my 7 year old son a crf 50. I have adjusted the clutch but there is a huge hesitation from the time you give gas till the clutch engages. does'nt seem to slip once it gets going and it shifts fine. its a 2007 and it looks like it was ridden very little. any help would be appreciated

So what is your question? If you don't like the hesitation, it could be caused by lighter clutch weights allowing higher revs before engagement.

I guess my question is how do I make the clutch engage as soon as the throttle is applied.

had the same situation on my son's bike. when the throttle stop isturned all the way in, it will do this. It needs more throttle to get it going quickly. Sounds like you have the throttle limiter screw all the way in like I did. When you let it out, it can get more power quickly & will engage more quickly. Don't let it out until yor son is ready. My son's XR50 would do 35mph with me on it with the thottle stop all the way out. It is waaaaay too much for a kid that is the right size for it with the throttle stop all the way out. If you're running the stop all the way in, it's going to really hesitate before it gets going. That's just somthing ou're going to have to live with until he can ride it with the throttle stop further out.

I am comparing it to the chinese 50cc 4 wheeler he had before.even with the throttle limited it seemed to engage instantly as gas was applied.with his limit screw out all the way it still seems like the rpms have to be really high before it engages. is this normal for the crf 50s.

      Hello friends, 
      6 months ago I encouraged my six-year-old son to learn to ride our little 2007 CRF50F. He rode a little, but kept panicking and having small spills, and I sensed it was becoming a negative experience for him. He had lost all confidence. So I gave it a break, and now, 6 months later, he's back in the saddle. Yesterday at dinner I cheerfully encouraged him to try again. He cautiously agreed, and after about 1 minute of seat time he was off. I think 6 months of strength, mental ability, etc made the difference. Maybe more than anything his confidence boosted and now he's grinning ear to ear. Here's a little video from last night...

      Hello friends, 
      Seeing as how school was about to begin, I took my boys on a 16-mile exploration ride through the country. Along the way we found a neat levee, and the boys rode across it on their little Honda dirt bikes (CRF50F and CRF70F). These little bikes are awesome. Dirt bikes are a great way to spend time together, in my opinion.

      Hello friends, 
      I pushed my boys to ride a little harder on a recent ride. No one got hurt, and nothing broke. It's so fun to watch them improving in their skills...
