Need HELP Moto 4 Clutch Carry Assembly Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I have a liitle issue here that has left me scratching my head. I recently bought a Moto 4 87 2wd. About 20 minutes after I got it home I heard a loud wrenching and snapping and then what sounded of metal whirling around in places it shouldnt. I opened up the right crankcase and found that a spring on the clutch carry assembly has broken unto ublivion. Not the clutch now, the clutch carry assembly. I bought a new spring, replaced it. And put it all back together (with some difficulty, I am unsure about the reinstallation of one part - see video in link below). I started it up no problem, with the immediate wrenching and snapping and whirling again. Opened it up again, another broken spring. I have now ordered enough springs to replace ALL the srings at the same time because I have noticed all the springs but one are very loose. Attached is a link to a video I have of the problem, please let me know if you have ANY information that could be helpful.

The video can be found here. [ame]

Great video explaining what happened and what you did. It looks to me that your centrifugal clutch assembly is toast. That's those 4 shoes that engage the drum with the springs you've replaced. You'll have to pull the clutch assembly out of that drum (bend the lock-tabs free on the center shaft of that clutch, buzz the (22mm?) nut off the shaft and pull that shoe assembly out - check the inside of the drum, looks to me in your video that the clutch & drum are so worn that the shoes are moving excessively and that's whats breaking your springs - they're being stretched too far.

That secondary assembly in the lower left corner with the spring, plate and triangle of balls looks like you've got it right - that's what "disengages" the clutch when you shift.

Let me know if your clutch is bad, I might have a spare in the barn.

Alright getting somewhere! Thank you for your response. I am actually going on vacation tomorrow morning so alas, my bike sits. Incomplete, until I return a month from now. When I get back I will take off the clutch carry assembly and let you know what I see. (Or just post another video) In the meantime, if you happen to come across that extra clutch in your barn let me know. Either way, thanks again and I will post again when I return! Last thing, what is the possibility that its just the springs that are warn out?

Not likely it's the springs - the only way they'd go "bad" is if they're over extended.... because the clutch assembly is worn. When you get it apart you'll be able to see where the friction material is supposed to be, it'll likely be mostly gone or heavily grooved. You might need the drum as well.

So I have returned from vacationland. A wonderful 2 months in Maine. ATV HEAVEN out there. I have put the new springs in and started her up. No wrenching or snapping or whirling or anything that would make me think another spring broke. So fingers crossed that's one crisis averted. I am still interested in your clutch carry assembly though if you have one lying around. I need to fix up the brakes and some other general stuff but otherwise I think were good. She does still has a clicking noise that I think has something to do with the starter. It only happens when I use the eletric start, and when I turn it off it gives one "click". I will post a video soon of the bike running. And and all comments or suggestions are very helpful.

(YFM100) so I've been trying to get this thing to start for awhile honestly I'm running out of ideas so I'll start with the things Ive replaced and done first it was not trying at all and then I put a brand new battery then the terminals broke so I bought some nice copper ones fixed that up so now battery is got good voltage and all that I have checked all the plugs cleaned everything off so anyway it still wasn't trying but I couldn't get the crank case off and I didn't think using fire was a good idea lol so I busted the crank case off on the left side(if you are sitting on it) wierdly enough the flywheel started spinning I thought it was odd but went with it then I replaced the spark plug still wasn't getting spark so I replaced the ignition coil then it was getting spark next the carburetor was really gross I cleaned it out still wasn't working so I in turn decided just to replace it with a new one so I did (PS I never figured out how the fuel lines hook up if someone wants to help with that to lol) also for good measure put a new air filter so then I pressing the button Everytime I replace something and nothing so then I think what if it's the stator so I have no idea what a good or bad stator looks like but me being to rough I broke the wires on the thing but still no changes the fly wheel spins gets compression (I think) getting spark from spark plug idk other tidbits that might be useful I don't have a clutch line so idk if that has something to do with it I do have the break zip tied in to bypass the safety feature also the throttle cable is in fact broken and I'm working on buying a new petcock for my gas tank because my current one is broke I have very limited money this is supposed to be a project before I go to school for welding and automotive tech so I don't have any money to get a mechanic lol but I'm pretty confident in my ability to do anything u suggest any suggestions are welcome I'll edit and submit pics

      Doesnt seem to make the sound all the time. Mostly does it under load or going up an incline. Its kind of like a clunk and or grinding noise, Kind of hard to decipher. Today while going up an incline it actually stopped and it sounds like something spinning and then it ingauged again and it would move. I checked the clutches and installed a new belt before it did that also. Rear drive shaft seems ok where U joint is too. Has all new rear CV shafts and bearings and al new bushings in rear arms. Also flushed out the rear Diff with no shavings. Any ideas or where to check.

      So my parents have not let me get my license yet and I need to get around to gets parts and stuff.  Answer: Yamaha CW50 scooter.  This is a 2-cycle self-mixing scooter that so far, I am really surprised with the power output and speed.  It reaches about 45mph since the speedo has been disconnected and has plenty of power for two riders.  Its stupid looking, but with some work and a title and plate, it'll take me around town..  My issue is this:  No key.  I bought it for $150 from a friend and he bought it from someone for $100 who wired in a switch in place of the ignition.  That guy got it form his neighbor who's renter left it behind.  The scooter will run with this switch on or off (kill switch on handlebar kills engine)  To get it tiled and a plate so its road worthy, I need to get the ignition working either by a replacement key or a new ignition.  All wires are cut to the ignition and the switch turned on the power to the signal light switch.  Also, the 2-cycle oil was leaking out the carb, through the air filter and onto the scooter.  also, it runs great, but its making blue smoke with throttle and the muffler is wet with oil.

      (I have new signal lights for it btw)  So the issues I have with it summed up:
      No key (need new ignition) smokes burnt out headlight-  can I replace them with LEDs?

      So here's the deal people, I have an old Avenger 350 4X4 Shaft Driven ATV. They only made them in the early 80's their thought of as the first four wheelers from around back when Suzuki made one in 1982. I believe the engine on it is a Kohler as I watched this video https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=avenger+400+atv&view=detail&mid=1E10E939019CA07770031E10E939019CA0777003&FORM=VIRE but mine is a 350. That's if its original, and it all looks original. I am wondering where I can get parts for this engine, or really what engine is it. I have no way to find the year, unless you guys know where a serial number might be. Every sticker is worn off. IF anyone has any information at all on these old wheelers it would be greatly appreciated. I specifically need the gaskets for the carb, and don't tell me I could build them please I want to restore it as perfectly as I can. I can take pictures of the wheeler/carb if it'll help. Let me know.

      Recently bought my BB. Everything works great. Only thing is, each time I put it in reverse, it either starts to rev high and start moving without giving it gas or I'll give it a bit of gas and let go and it will still rev at the same rpm or higher and keep moving. Doesn't do it for high or low.
