so i let my bro borrow the mini......bad choice

I taught him how to ride it..he was doing good, and for christmas i let him ride it without me watching him....

after five minutes he comes into my room and says dude 'm sorry but youre gonna be .....

he told me that he was going almost top speed(40mph) and put the clutch in and downshifted to first.....the bike started to shake and he shifted back up....
the bike will ride normal and everything..but......

heres the problem......the clutch wont engage anymore!!!! basically it is like even with the cltuch in all the way...the bike will stilljust go forward...theres is no clutch control at all anymore

i have to start the bike from a roll cause itll jerk foraward and die if i start it from normal....how should i get this fixed......anything i need to tighten, check.......thoughts guys...

those trannies are weird to begin with, so it may be a little different than a normal clutch. i may be wrong, but i believe the roketa's you guys ride have something called a rotary clutch? (something weird like that, ill look it up for ya to be sure) You are in clear lake right? Ill be headed down to my girlfriend house (brookforest neighborhood) for the week, so hit me up tomorrow and i'll come by and help ya out sometime. the name is Joe, and you can PM me for my cell#.

dotcom, I posted a thread in the mini section about the transmission on those Roketa's, but i don't think too many people read that section yet, so I'll tell ya hear. From reading at planetminis.com I have discovered that you can change your shift pattern from 1up3down to 1down3up by reversing the position of the shift shaft. Not sure if you care, but at least the tranny would be more like the big bike.

Since he's your bro, this is even worse of a saying. My response to people when they want to ride anything of mine,

"Consider that I care for my bike as much as I care for my mother, and you wouldn't dream of riding my mother.... and if you did you'd be better off keeping that dream to yourself."

that's so strange to me, can someone explain the advantage of gp shifting? anyhow, i think arturo can change his to all up if he wants to. just turn the shift shaft around

On a roadracing bike if you're leaned over to the left and you have to upshift you just push down on the lever rather than have to get your toe underneath it.
It really just comes down to personal preference as there are a ton of fast guys who stay with std. shift.

hmmm...didn't think about it that way, I thought it was to remember to always press down to shift, I don't know why I thought that

Patrick, can you send me a PM on how much your pilot powers are? I think I'm going to get one from you
