Is there any way to add a clutch to a weed whacker that doesn't already have one?

I have a weed whacker that I am hoping to use for attaching to a bike (several instructables of others doing this are already on here) but I think it would best and safest if it had a clutch. Is there any way to add one or does anybody have suggestions on how to work around this?

It should have one already if it's petrol (gasoline), but if it's electric it won't. It's not really a suitable motor unless you know how to use it (without asking questions). You'll need gearing for this as well of course. L

i have a weedeater that is new and it doesnt have a clutch. it must be because its a oil and gasoline mix.
Use something besides a weed-eater.

better yet, just buy a kit to convert your bike, it's only like $150 for the 60cc model
