First off Welcome to the site. Secondly Periods and Commas' do wonders when reading. Lol.Had a hard time making out your post. Ok, Centrifugals typically dont go out that easily, so I would say it could be the clutch springs or the oil you are using. I have had to replace the springs on mine a few times until I went with a heavy duty spring set. Greg at www.cycleworkracing.net sells them for about $12. Secondly if you are using an automotive oil in that bike, it will shit a clutch up in a heartbeat. Use only an oil designed for wet clutch bikes. Most motorcyle and atvs use this set up anymore. Honda GN4 work great, its cheap. You may have to adjust it a few times before the clutch sets in.
