Well, Most us had the J.Costa and simply put it back in the Box Only After 2-3 years of having it installed, The design is not very good at least for are Models.

and it look like there is a Clutch design available as well, as Belts and SUSPENSION.

Suggest you do more Research before you...

Bill Meek, has the same year model 400 or between you have, and he Boxed his J.Costa do to wear and tear of the J.Costa it self, Not sure what his status on his VARIATOR now...

and i thru my J.Costa in the trash 5 years ago ,even took it to a Machinist and had it Modified and it still Failed!!!! :(

Yea! Chris, is right? i all so Purchased the Weights and 2 of them did not even Fit, ain't that something could not even get the Pin out had to brake it to remove the Weights ,.

Glad your steering clear but there is the MALOSSI Multivar 2000, and the Polini Speed variator, and Dr.pulley might have one as well, you might want to look into it.

Not that is was not a bad VARIATOR, it's just the Brass Sleave where the Boss slides into ,it's a Mistake to use that design, the Pins are to soft,

i think that the Bell as you were saying cliffyk, the bell should have been splined to so it would not turn and Damage the Crank Shaft spline teeth, and use the Stock OEM variator design of the Boss.

it would not be a bad variator if these things were fixed!

here is a video of the J.Costa http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HrHS7ZSNB0 FAILURE!!!!!!! :oops:
