If you have not replaced the clutch springs, that would be next. If it is a larger displacement engine, you might want the heavy duty springs. If you want to make a sure, quick change, get the Honda Trail Bikes heavy duty clutch and be done with it.

I did purchase the heavy duty clutch springs , there is no way they were going to fit , they
We're way to large , it was the correct part number it called for but springs would not fit .

One thing to keep in mind is that theses are essentially kids bikes and a full kick from a 200lb adult will slip the clutch every time.

I would suggest trying to kick lightly and see if that helps.

Here is the number for the HondaTB clutch: TB Heavy Duty Clutch Kit - All Models - TBparts.com

For the springs alone you may have to look around a little, but I usually find a set of Vesrah brand springs. To be honest, it is so much easier to just drop in the complete HD clutch with all the new screws, locking plate, clutch nut, pilot bearing, primary gear, gaskets, friction and steel plates, main springs and damper springs, and know you are 100% rebuilt. You can save a little money buying the things necessary for a rebuild, but you will not save much, and if you were replacing the complete list of parts above, you would not save much at all.
