Auto Clutch Lube

I just installed an Ultima EMF auto clutch (THANKS SCOOTERS!) and am wondering if it needs to be lubed in any fashion. The documentation that came with the unit did not mention it, but thought some members here may have some experience.

I have adjusted the pushrod and the clutch operates normally. I have also triple checked the travel of the auto clutch (.050 - .070) but when the clutch lever is pulled in the unit makes a bit of a whirling sound. I am assuming this is just another sound I need to get used to but wanted to make sure.

See what others say but I think the whiring sound might be inherent of the design especially on an open belt drive. I can imagine what you could lube on it. If you dont get good response here I can always call EFM for you and ask them directly.

It might just be all the snow and ice making that noise. I wonder if you can start that auto clutch when it's in gear? I would guess so as long as you don't hit the throttle.

You could start it in gear if you do not install a neutral switch. At first I did not have one installed (even though one shipped with the unit) and then the same vision kept popping in my head:

12 pack and 4 shots later friends show up at the house.....Talking about how they love the bike and in my normal accommodating fashion I say "Shit lets fire that thing up....come on!". Go out pull the enricher, pump the throttle once, hit the starter button and watch that thing go flying through the garage door.

I installed the neutral switch the next day and my reoccurring dream is no longer an issue.

Easy fix for that bro.......don't let your friends fire up your ride!!!

I never let ANYONE fire up my ride, that was me doing the button pushing and forgetting to check if it is gear after too many party favors. Lord knows that only happens 5 nights a week (due to old age).

Depending on the clearance of the pressure plate - I wouldn't recommend it though... The bike can still creep forward....

Hey I know Craving would but he just left for Jamica for 2 weeks. I think I could get them Saturday for you if nobody else does.
