Installed DPS 18 g today, used a custom made of wood prehistoric tool. :D



Works ok though.

However was not able to unscrew the clutch nut -- lifted the scoot 4-5 times but the nut stayed (nice exercise). Maybe next time will ask someone to sit on pillion :)

Guys,Looking for a tool to remove the variator.Hopefully someone made one

thanks John
Never used anything special to remove mine many a time. A electric or air powered impact gun spins the nut off with no problem. Removed mine every 5k miles to clean it out. So with putting 46k+ miles on it that would be many a time.;)

Thanks, Ralph -- there's still a paper with dimensions somewhere in the garage, i can find it if interested. It's a 1.5-2 hours work. :)

Using an lower torque electric or pneumatic impact tool an experienced user can just "hit it" with the wrench and get them sufficiently/properly tight.

However I prefer to use torque sticks of the proper value as that is a much more accurate method.

HF stk # 69870:



Using a 65 lb-ft stick to torque the clutch bell nut:



Torque sticks are accurate to ±3%, the same/a bit better than most clicker-type torque wrenches, and like any torsion spring remain that way forever unless they break...

Thanks for the thought, but I am useless at wood, I still think it's brilliant.

Desert Rat. How do you torque it back on then? Or do ou just hit it with the impact again?
Just hit it again. Depending upon what kind of torque wrench you are using you don't want to sit there keep hitting it. I set my air impact to setting 2 which works just fine. For those not use to using air impacts I would recommend a electric from Harbor Freight. For low torques like what is needed they will work fine.
