A couple months ago I stopped by a dealer and checked out the new 650. I was really surprised at how large a bike it is. After that kind of decided it wasn't for me but turned my attention to the 400.
Sorry G-dub I meant nuts. I got the two conical washers and the two nuts. I kind of beat up the 24 mm nut on the clutch. It was harder to come off. I think I pressed the wrong button on my impact wrench. $9.11 wont kill me for them. I gave more then that to the casino last week!I just have the normal vices...drinking, cussing....
What are those bolts for?
I would use warm water with a little soap to clean the belt. Never solvents or degreasers because these dry the belt and ends up cracking. To remove the dust between the teeth of the belt, I would use a toothbrush. Afterwards, rinse well and let dry in the shade, never in the sun.I'm going to put everything together today. My case is cleaned out of dust. Question: Does anyone clean the dust off the drive belt? I'll wipe it down with a clean rag, but does anyone use solvent or degreaser on it? It might be a silly question but I thought I would ask.
I never washed anything inside my CVT case in 77,000 miles. I did wipe out any grease on the inside of the case and blew out the dust with compressed air.I'm going to put everything together today.

I just spent a short time at highway speeds today. Will have to take a trip to find out.How's the oomph on the highway when you go to pass?
I'm with you on the top end, 90 is plenty fast. But I'm concerned about sudden acceleration for passing or avoiding an accident.
So it's been a while now... I don't recall seeing any updates on this, although I may have missed it.I just spent a short time at highway speeds today. Will have to take a trip to find out.
Have you noticed any change in the mileage?So far I'm pretty happy with the set up. I'm thinking when I hit 6000 miles I'll take off the side cover and check how everything is holding up. Change the rear diff oil. Check how much dust is in the case. Acceleration is still great. The Burgman will no longer red line with this set up. I rarely go over 85 mph so top end it's not a real concern to me.
My scooter seems pretty fast from a stop. Top end when I was testing the other day was about 86 mph and no red line. Not sure if you want such a reduction from top end of 100 mph or so but I no longer have the need to go that fast.@Uncle Fester So... it's been a while... Would you recommend these sliders? I'm finally getting around to replacing the belt. I may need to replace the rollers too (16k miles and probably nothing replaced before I bought it). So thinking I may as well starting looking at options a little more seriously.
