Centrifugal Clutch

Postby Firefighter241154 » Thu Jun 11, 2020 7:24 pm

My son has a Chinese for kart that we just put a predator engine on with a centrifugal clutch. It has a 420 chain I am looking for recommendations on the best clutch to put on there he had one from amazon I believe call brevodix not sure that’s right but anyway with 180 lbs on the cart the clutch got so hot it was glowing red. Looking for on that would pull that weight or more or is their a better system than the clutch? Thanks

Honestly i would replace the clutch and put a Torque converter on it. The clutch will eventually burn out and need replacing , with a TC, you would only replace a belt. BTW which Predator engine did you install? I have used and would highly recommend this one. TAV2 You might want to search the internet for a better price, here is a couple of knock offs on Amazon.
