Default I picked up a new project...Kandi 110. Need some clutch info.

At least I think it's a Kandi. I didn't get to hear it run, or even crank for that matter (no battery), but I payed accordingly. Got home and put a battery in it and it fired right up. One problem is that it won't move. Put it on jacks and it will make the tires go around, but any load will stop them.

I've never had a auto clutch apart...what can I replace...friction plates, or do I have to replace the whole unit?

Any info on the best place for parts is also appreciated.

the 110 is a gy6 style engine..
you either have a worn belt (most likely scenario)
or worn rollers (maybe both)

both can be replaced rather easily yourself.

I'm not real familiar with these buggies, but I don't believe this has a belt. It's an internal auto clutch rather than a TC.

A little better picture...

I've replaced clutch baskets and friction plates before, but never an auto clutch. I want to make sure I'm ordering the right one.

I'm thinking this one will work, but not sure about the spline...

Thats a honda monkey Z type engine...
Most are made by Lifan or Loncin now....like the lifan 110cc engine is a common... Which I believe that is the one you have...

I think you're right.

I looked at it a little closer last night and the oil is a little over full (not much), but it got me to thinking...wonder what kind of oil they put in it. I've read stories about auto oil making clutches slip (although as kids, that was all we ever used and never had trouble). I think I'll drain the oil and replace it with some of my bike oil before I tear it apart.

Sounds like it's pretty rare for these clutches to wear out.

I decided to just replace the clutch. took the cover off to make sure how many teeth are on it and it stinks. Definitely burnt. The new one should be here by the end of the week.
