On my Raptor 90 I am having problems on start up. The clutch is already engaged at idle speed and I have to pump the throttle for the clutch to disengage & that just works some of the time.

On my 30 I used pliers to squeeze close the clutch alittle and that helped, will this be the solution for my sticking clutch for the 90 also?

I believe there is no shim under the clutch on the 90.
You should be able sand the edges of the hub mounted to the fan to prevent the clutch from hanging up on it.

yup, KFilloon is right. Your clutch ears are probably hanging up on the fan hub. Scribe the hub where the ears are then remove the clutch. File from the scribed line to the edge of the hub so it is lower by a few thousands. Remount the cluch with locktight and fly.
Good luck

Well last Sunday, 12/10 I flew the 90 the clutch still was sticking but it still flew well even though I flew it hard. This morning I finally dropped the engine and discovered that the clutch has a crack along the skinny part that allows the clutch to spread apart. I think that with another flight or 2 that this would have simply snapped off and caused all sorts of problems.

Hey bgjames save that clutch for me' I'll be at the shop today to get it.
