Can you give me a little history on the bike? Has it been in storage for some time? how long? did this problem appear all of the sudden or become gradually worse? What part are you calling a clutch generator? Where are is it located?

Do you have a meter to preform some simple tests for me?


I need to know 1. The battery voltage 2. The voltage with the key in the ON position 3. The battery voltage with the key in the on position and the start button depressed for 10 seconds.


Let me know what those readings are and we can continue to work towards a solution.
