Centrifugal Clutch Bicycle Motor Kits
How a Centrifugal Clutch Bicycle Motor Operates
Like the regular clutch-lever models, the centrifugal clutch motors are pop started. However, once started, you can slow down or come to a stop without pulling back down on the clutch lever. You can still engage and disengage with the hand-grip clutch lever, but it is not necessary after the initial pop start. Basically, once it starts, you don't have to be bothered with the clutch again, so you are free to enjoy your motorized bicycle ride!
Centrifugal Clutch Center Mount Motor Options
Each of the Center Mount Centrifugal Clutch Motors comes in 48CC, 60CC, and 70CC models (CC refers to motor size; the bigger the CC, the bigger the motor size and power). A pull-start assembly can be added to centrifugal clutch motors, though due to the width, some modification to increase width between the pedals is usually required.
Will the Center Mount Motor Right Work On My Bike?
There are a few important considerations for buyers who are trying to decide between center mounted bicycle motors and rear mounted options, including aesthetics, but of primary importance is whether the bike has enough room for the motor kit assembly in the "V" area of the bike. Traditionally, some classic and standard bike models like Schwinn, Sun, and Huffy "Beach Cruiser" models have consistently proven to meet this space requirement. Many men's mountain bikes also fit the bill, while the configuration of the typical women's mountain bike doesn't have a place to mount the gas tank.
