Hi, I am having a hard time finding malossi clutch and variator parts in Canada. Can someone recommend a place for me that is honest and fair, US or Canada. (I'll even cheer for a US hockey team if I have to lol).
I want to replace all variator components, including the finned fixed face, the belt and possibly the clutch, at least the contra spring. I just did a 2300km trip in4 days and want to make this bike smoother. I know the variator is not quite right. I dont know if the little springs in the clutch need changing or not. I would consider a whole new clutch, but probably not a Dr. PULEY.
Tks for and help, leads etc.
G.

How many miles on it that you need to replace contra spring and front pulleys?

Not sure if USA and Canada have good relations regarding customs wise that if you send from USA to Canada you wouldnt pay taxes?

There is no lack of places to buy oem parts from in the USA. Ive only dealt with Partzilla.com and it was a pleasure, Others may through their favorites here.

Malossi clutch I'd buy from ebay. Many sell the vented type CHROME bell for $300 but looking now I see prices jumped. Covid19 must have affected people and they ask for more money. Seems to be a trend as of late people are price gouging.

I think Malossi make a contra spring for the b400 2007-18 also clutch mini springs you can replace on the oem. I personally would try to find the (chromed vented) bell and buy Malossi contra/mini springs but leave the oem pads. Cheapest way, imho. The oem clutch pads are fine imho. I've never had judder or slippage. I always clean the glazing off the pads and scuff the bell with low 100 grit sandpaper, sanding perpendicular to the turn.

Regarding the bearings and seals for clutch I'd go oem. Clutch pads from Malossi come with tiny springs I think they also come with 2 different ones as well for the pads to bite at an earlier rpm. Add sliders from Dr Pulley or Motoritec or Flying rollers

Ask Uncle Fester regarding his HIT clutch. Its $400 (no bell) but it seems to do the the job

Hi, I dont have many miles only 16000km but I just bought this bike and one of the previous owners was in it and obviously did not know what he/she wa doing. Two broken fins on the vented stationary variator face, broken bolt for the cover etc. I already took it apart cleaned everything up de glazed etc, installed dr puley 19g sliders, replaced the belt and it seemed great. I just did a 2300km km trip over 4 days so there was no ***** footing around. I had a wobble at low speed mostly so I removed the givi box and it fixed that, then I had a nasty vibration starting about 120kph, I removed 2oz of weights off the front rim and that made a huge difference, not sure who the hel alance that Michelin tire. Now I still have what feels like a drive train vibration and I know the belt does not turn smooth. It seems to have a bit of whip in it. It is the correct belt it's a new bando belt and had no directional markings on it. I even changed the windshield on it. So all this said, I did not pay much for this Burg so I am willing to invest a bit in it. Lol it's my third bike this year . Maybe I dont need a whole new drive assembly and I should just replace the variator. Oh yes, I can feel the belt slip as well.

So few miles so many issues.

Replace paets needed then like contra spring finned pulley. Check seals and bearings front and back.finned pulley will vibrate at higher speeds and cause some on the crankshaft arm which isnt healthy. See you dont have play with the wheel bearings. Open clutch clean regrease with hi temp. Belt... ONLY OEM. Bando.. Meh. Not for the burgman. Maybe shittier scoots $107 gives a lot of bang for the buck. Check boss pin also. No cupping on tires?
Broken bolt ofr cover no big deal.. You have 9 others 😂🤣
Unless its the plastic one and still youll be ok. Cheers

I just upgraded with Malossi variator kit, belt, clutch, bell, contra spring.
I used dr pulley sliders and variator slides.
I got all the parts from scooter parts co
I checked, they do ship to Canada.

I got the fan face and moveable drive from partsfish
Best price I could find. But as the others said, OEM parts are everywhere.

My cruising speeds are about this:
70mph 5000rpm
80mph 5500rpm
90mph 6000rpm
100mph 6500rpm

No matter how hard I push it, i cant get my bike higher than 6500rpms

Now granted this is after I upgraded with Dr. Pulley 20g sliders not roller weights. Malossi variator, kevlar belt, clutch and bell and contra spring. Leo Vince exhaust.

I have done many cross state trips. I moto camp regularly with my burgy. Next summer I am planning for ocean to ocean trip.

any issues with leo vince, did you have to remap or just slip on and go?
