manual clutch 02 XR50r? Insight please

Recommended Posts

Looking for anyone with advice, or experience with a manual clutch on your 50. looking to upgrade.

The auto clutch shifting on my bike seems very abrupt, and can be jerky. Even at low revs. Doesn't matter if you are up shifting or down shifting. This is a bit unsettling to my 6yr old. I'm moving him up from a PW50, and would like him to get used to using a clutch. This is my first Honda 50, maybe they're all like this??? TIA

the clutch should be pretty smooth. There's and adjustment on the nut that hangs out. Having the idle to high may make it feel kinda choppy also.

I think the trail bikes manual clutch kit is right around $150. I've seen a few kids make the switch from the hondamatic trans to a clutch. Not a one have had any problems at all.

I"d just fix the existing clutch!

Thanks, after doing a bit more research. i did adjust my stock clutch, and that seems to have smoothed things out considerably.
