A shop was in and and replaced the belt a couple thousand miles ago. And as best as I can understand, they managed to mangle the metal ring that goes on the back of the variator, so they replaced it with one for a 2007+ model. Edit: metal ring being the one that screws on to hold the plate in the back.Have you done anything to the variator recently? I get the impression the sliders are sticking or have come out of the slots
Nope, rev's quite freely on the center stand.I'm kinda thinkin if that was wide open throttle, and the rpm's were that slowly crawlin up, it aint a slippin belt or variator cause the motor would be racing, maybe a tps thing or a motor don't got gas or whatever. does it act the same on center stand?
Sorry yes generic term. If they have slipped sideways or come out of the slots the symptoms you exhibit is the result. Only guessing on your description of course we the management reserve the right to reverse our observations at anytime 😁Would that still be a potential problem with rollers? (I didn't put sliders in)
