Electric start sprag clutch.
« on: October 29, 2009, 01:31:57 AM »
Hi all,

Just a quick query, is the starter motor & sprag clutch in the UCE motor the same set up as in the previous Electra engine. I'm just a little concerned regarding the reliability or otherwise of the setup. The electra's seemed to be plauged with the sprag clutch failing with regularity looking at the forums over here        ???.

Thanks

Hocko

UCE design incorporated a modern E start from the beginning.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

The sprag itself is the same as the older ones. The difference is that it is mounted right on the motor sprocket and supported by a robust roller bearing.
The other difference is the UCE engine has a auto decompressor so there will be no sprag destroying kickbacks.
