HI Quenton, I hear your the man for everything whizzer, so I have a question or two for you. I have a 2007 NE5 with about 475 miles on it. The "stay" that holds the engine to the leaf (spring) on the front keeps breaking, I've replaced it twice. It just splits so that it doesn't grab anymore, and the tabs on the side eventually fall off. Have you run into this problem, and is there a fix?
Is there any other problems with that model NE5 that I should be keeping an eye out for?
Will see ya at Portland.
Hi Quenton. I am just going to Portland and will look you up there. Do you have a 50 over piston for my vintage J motor. I am looking for a 10 over with ringd as well. Trying to clear my work bench off for the summer and wrapping up some winter projects.
Just found your message!
The only 2 automatic clutch systems to fit the vintage motors are the #270 originally made by Salisbury in CA, and the 2 speed [Bi-matic]. The Bi-Matic is very expensive and must be upgraded by an expert to work correctly [$750.00 to $900.00]. The Model #270 was reproduced by Jerry Lane in OH a few years ago and normally sold fo $450.00.
Your best bet is to keep looking for the original #270, as I have seen them sell on EBay over the last few years.
No other clutch will work because of the needed one-way system to start the motor, and the current new edition Whizzer clutch is too wide.
Hope this information helps,
Wayne Bertrand here from Vancouver. You rebuilt my 1947 J motor for me. It is still running BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks again.
I was wondering what centrifugal clutch might be available for that motor? I live in a hilly, very hilly, area and thought maybe this type of clutch would make riding a bit smoother. What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks again for your awesome work and help.
It got close enough to take out a few trees and my electric for a day, but the same happens during normal storms here on the Outer Banks.
Hello Quenton, Hope the hurricane missed you. I am still riding my WC1 Whizzer w/auto clutch. Went to Portland this year and I do believe they had the largest crowd there I have seen in the 10 yrs. I have been going. Don Brown, Dayton, Ohio

Sent a message to you via the EZ Motorbike site but got an anti spam message from "Randy".
anyway, I do not need the clutch bearing as I found the exact one here.
