Exclamation Club car with kawasaki engine swap help

Okay boys, I need some help!

I bought a 98 club car that had a kawasaki OHV water cooled engine swap done to it. This has been made to be a key start with the forward and reverse being switched. The cart has an 8in (I believe) lift.

The problem: when I start the cart the drive clutch is already starting to spin so when it turns over I have to be on the brakes pretty good. The cart will not idle without trying to take off and you cannot switch it from forward to reverse with it running. You have to turn off the cart, switch gears, and then crank it back up.

Is there any way to fix this so when I crank it up it won't try to take off and will just idle. If I can figure that out I assume I would be able switch gears without shutting it off.

Thanks in advance for your help!
-Ken

Change the drive clutch, but it's gonna be hard for me to tell you which clutch to use as I've never had any experience with a kawasaki water cooled engine.
