Skelley, I'm too lazy to go back through and like all your posts, so here is one big like for all of them and the ones to come.
Thikseal left a weird deposit. Glad I switched to Amsoil for this test run. Wasn't expecting that type of residue.
All my weight were within .06 mm Biggest 30.09 mm Smallest 30.03 mm Weight was also within .02g .
Same as usual, Bunch of crap caused by the piss poor CVT intake design. And this time I didnt swamp it, I just hit a few mud puddles.
Pressure washed the inside of the case....lol... Torque everything down to a few Uga Duggas on #3 of the 1/2 Milwaukee impact. Shits not coming off....
This is the 5th time I do this, and hopefully the last, Just waiting on my Pre-Filter that I can put on the CVT intake.
After I replaced my worn out secondary sheave I thought my wet clutch was going out because my CVT was shifting so phenomenally and hadn't experienced it shift that smoothly since I could remember. It's slowly losing that feeling as I approach 11K miles, which is 2K miles since my last servicing. Yamaha is still out of secondary spring cups so I'm waiting for them to be back in stock to service my secondary again.View attachment 86056
Tinkseal Test run...
I have a road course that I take after I do any modifications, repairs or testing.
It's a 30 mile blacktop road with a lot of steep hills, sharp switchbacks and long straightaways.
It has a rock face on one side of the road and forest on the other.
I like this blacktop road course especially for testing and inspection runs as any noises/sounds are amplified between the rock face and forest.
The first section of this course was casual speed. I was focusing on the CVT sounds/operation and less on actual driving.
When I hit the switchback section I was ready to rip. Between punching the throttle and taping the break, I was mainly focused on CVT operation/response.
Straightaways were wide open throttle and listening for any sound fluctuations/vibrations.
Now I reached the half way mark, so I turned around and repeated all the above steps on the way back.
I couldn't believe how smooth and quiet the CVT operated.
I couldn't hear or feel any noises or vibrations at all and I didn't even have all the plastics on either.
Upshift performances were better with smooth and linear response to the throttle inputs.
Backshifts were phenominal. I don't know any other way to put it.
It left me wondering if I was slowly developing a issue and it just became the new normal or not.
I had to think back to when the car was new and wonder if it ever backshifted this good.
Either way, the improvements had me pretty stoked to say the least.
Lastly, I noticed a slightly better power delivery. I'm thinking that the sheaves work so smoothly and together that belt pinch was improved which transfers to more power to the ground.
I strongly recommend that everyone should do their sheave service when required or sooner.
As a 30 yr Industrial Mechanic, I can tell you that from this moment and continuing into the future, I will be doing my Sheave Service with Tinkseal.
