    Exclamation Tires spin when idling

    It idles fine, but you have to keep the tires off the ground for it to start. If you set it down it dies, its almost like the transmission is locked into gear. Ive tried messing with the slipper clutch and got it so i can drive it now but its still not right. thanks for the help

    The problem lies in the engine clutch. Either the spring has broken and/or a shoe.
    Remove the engine to access the clutch to repair.
    No slipper/tall gearing/power = broken parts.

    +1 with the clutch. I had the same problem, it was the spring.
