The ear indicator never flashes. It just goes to 2nd and stays there unless I stop. Then it goes back to 2. Try to shift to 2 while stopped and light remains solid on 1. Won't go to 2 unless I'm moving.It does move on in 1st on the ground riding right?
Hmm shifting into 2nd rules of the switch. Raising the engine speed and shifting manually if it won't shift higher and the gear indicator flashing when trying to shift up further means the controller is either seeing the engine RPM's and/or speed indicated are not high enough or something else.
You are correct. There is no F1 indicator. Also I get code c00 when I connect in mechanic modeWhat you are describing is consistent with the fail safe mode for a problem with one of the CVT sensors or the speed sensors. That should be accompanied with an FI indicator though and you have not mentioned seeing that.
Took it for a ride and didn't gear up when I backed off the throttle. Always stayed in high RPM and wouldn't shift up.What you are describing is also quite similar to what Robin's 07 was doing when the primary pulley failed. The difference being that hers would stay in a low ratio as long as you kept the throttle open but if you backed off the throttle it would up shift. I test road it and in auto mode from a dead stop it went all the way to 8,000 rpm without an upshift. As soon as I backed off the throttle it went to a higher ratio.
Here I'll link you to this. This guy found his plastic gears chewed up possibly caused by lack of anti-seize lube on the adjuster end of the primary pulley assembly. Sounds like it is time to pull the CVT and do a full internal inspection of all the parts.I think I may have found the problem...
Took off the CVT motor. The plastic gears were chewed to rats**t. Looks like nothing is making contact with the primary pulley. The primary pulley is locked in place. It won't move.
I'm hoping that taking it apart, cleaning it, and getting new gears will fix the problem, and won't be too costly.
