While tightening to 76lbs the variator nut I broke 2 fins on the front variator (the part where the roller weights are in The number 2 part). Is this going to cause a problem??

If they are DIRECTLY opposite each other...maybe not.
If they are NOT opposite each other....ah.....I'd be looking
for a replacement.
Fins broken off directly opposite each other may not affect
the spin-balance much.
If they are not opposite each other, or size of the broken
parts are not the same, you will have a balance problem.

Oh dear :roll:
If you run that in an out of balance state then you are going to transmit that additional 'load
/force' to the bearings. It may not prove to be an issue in your ownership but it could. Crystal ball territory.

Oh no I did the same thing :( . The piece I broke was smaller then a dime was just a corner of the fin . Did you find one ? If so where ? Do they make a tool for holding that or is that some thing I need to make myself ?

I ordered mine (the movable variator from Suzuki) at $116.00 canadian Dollars including taxes. As for keeping the variators from moving, I don't have the special tool, but i will try to just get my wife to use the torque wrench to tighten the variator nut while I hold the variator with something; besides what are wives for anyway :lol:
