I can't see that all of the rubber pieces inside your casing were the bushing rings that align that start plate because they usually melt when there's an issue. I suppose if you clutch sat empty for a really long time they could have dried out and cracked apart.

EVTodd wrote:@ John, It is indeed an NOI motor. I actually have a Polini kit that came with the bike sitting here. It's a direct bold on (cylinder, piston, ring, and seals) and you don't have to modify anything to use it. If you want crazy power you can use a larger intake, carb, expansion chamber, etc...
I'm still not sure what the plan is yet though.

Do "Moped Laws" (inspection/insurance) allow you to get away with these add-on kits to still pass inspection each year? In Texas it has to be a 50cc limit, but I guess these aftermarket kits let you go "higher" or what Wonder if there is an insurance/inspection issue afterwards?
I know JRH was building his hybrid to assist the gas for off the line acceleration & hills... at least the electric is well suited for torque & acceleration phase & then shift to the efficiency of gas at the higher speed??? Any new ideas for this as an electric hybrid? FD the front wheel or MAC torque it?
