"Rear Wheel spinning"


  

          

My Norton 850 has always been hard to start/Kick over and have been unable to track the problem. The rear wheel spins when its going more than what I would consider normal. Could this be part of my problem? Dodgy Clutch grabbing? Any help would be appreciated.

The rear wheel spinning is a bit of information that does not add much information about the starting capability of the engine. It does show the amount of driveline friction is high.
The norton engine should easily start in not more than three kicks.
Once you have the routine down pat, one kick starts should be quite normal. Fuel air ignition and compression in the correct ratio are essential for this to happen.
Now to play 20 questions....which one first?
