Abstract The invention is to reduce stirring resistance to the utmost, reduce deterioration of oil to the utmost, and arrange a balance weight by avoiding partition and formation of a special chamber in a crank case in an engine for a vehicle having a start clutch stored in the crank case. A start clutch includes a disc-like clutch plate rotated in synchronization with the rotation of a crankshaft while the movement along the axis parallel to the crankshaft is inhibited, a friction plate disposed opposite to the clutch plate, a ramp plate for pressing the friction plate to be in the frictional engagement with the clutch plate according to the increase in rotating speed of the clutch plate, and a clutch outer engaged with the friction plate to cover the ramp plate. A balance weight is provided in a portion of the ramp plate that is covered with the clutch outer.
