:oops:

First guess would be the variator wasn't properly installed and/or the nut wasn't properly torqued. Sorry but a couple ugh-uh-dug-uhs from an impact is not proper torque. Same goes for the clutch bell.

It think the guy who replaced belt put washer on backward,or didn’t seat belt properly while tightening variator nut

To paraphrase the old flying adage.
A good ride is one you walk away from unscathed. A great one is where you get to reuse the bike.

Glad you're still here to complain about. You check eBay for parts?
