I'm not a guru but I had timing chain issues. All from a rebuild I did trying to save the budget. The chain was stretched and it allowed it to skip a couple teeth when I used the clutch to brake as I rolled backwards on a hill I failed to clear. It wasn't enough to damage the motor when I tried to restart but it was enough that the bike wouldn't start and run. New chain installed and I've used the clutch getting off the trailer several times no problem.
