The difference seems to be the drive plates 21441-24F00 and 24452-10G10. These have been changed to 21441-26J00 and 21452-26J00 respectively. No changes to the weights or other parts of the actuating mechanism that I can find from looking at the parts fiche.The clutch is controlled by the CVT's output speed so if the 2013's clutch operates differently then there must be a change to the weights or plates.
Not sure where you gained this inaccurate impression, you have probably been reading an official Suzuki website - maybe they should include a 'cautionary note - beware we build bikes, we do not do proof reading'.I'm not a mechanic, but I am (for now, anyway) disappointed to find that the "final drive" on the 2013 AN650 (Formerly known as the Executive) now has a "belt" drive rather then the "geared" drive of the older Model 650's - snipped -
What it would cost in parts & labor to do, you could never recoup in fuel savings.Thanks for all the info. I've got a 2008 650 and was looking into the possibility of putting on 2013 cvt for less engine drag (braking) and better mileage. At least that's what Suzuki advertises. What do you think???
Did Suzi change the reduction ratio of the "transmission" (the reduction gears after the clutch and before the final drive)? Or does the clutch make the same number of revs per mile that it always has?
Final drive is with gear as in past model, someone report this winter or spring it belt drive but this mistake.I'm not a mechanic, but I am (for now, anyway) disappointed to find that the "final drive" on the 2013 AN650 (Formerly known as the Executive) now has a "belt" drive rather then the "geared" drive of the older Model 650's. I don't know how much trouble it will be to replace a belt, but servicing the gear drive was easy enough for me to do. (Using the Shop Manual for guidance.)
Thread drift, sorry. No he only does the ECM for the older engine management. The transmission ECM is in another box under the dash and you use that box with the transmission you are going to use. Lot of the 1991-1994 Turbo Subaru Legacy 2.2 drivers are putting the newer 5EAT in place of the 4EAT or put a 5-6 speed manual in. I have a 94 Turbocharged 2.2 Legacy wagon with a burnt up transmission and may put a 5 speed in it as the cost of a rebuilt 4 speed OD automatic is $2500 USD. His web page:Could you ask him if he digs into the Subaru CVT as well?
