I only got 200 miles and 20 hours now. Going to do the first oil/ diff fluid change now. But in the back of my mind and I know I'm no were close too be needing to do it yet. But what is the recommended miles on machine that the CVT will need to be greased / serviced. And belt
Checked for cracks ECT.. And I'm guessing that hunterworks has the OEM weights and sliders when I comes time.? Thanks fellow wolvie bros
That's good to know. I amusing you didn't get into much water / dust, Also is there a dust filter for the cvt breather pipe I need to look for and clean. I tried to follow the pipe but it just goes into the finder well or something!~
Well I see were the cvt exhaust pipe exist under the bed. But the "intake" part goes into the area under the back of the driver seat/ area. But I would have to pop the snapp rivits to open up the side are to see if there is a dust filter for the cvt intake. That's why I was asking if someone knew if there is a filter or not.
There is no filter on the CVT intake and usually putting a filter on the CVT is not a good idea anyway. You want as much airflow as possible through the CVT to keep the belt temps down. Heat kills belts quick.
The owners manual states check belt at 200 hrs then every 1500 hrs. There is no recommendation in it for intervals for checking/greasing sheave rollers. The service manual explains how to do this procedure, but also does not recommend intervals. In my experience, and from what I have heard from others, if you run a stock greased setup, you should remove the grease, clean the sheave, and regrease once a riding season. This is a PITA, which is one more reason to switch to greaseless...
A tub of the grease you need for the rollers is about 30-35$. The job itself will take a half day at least if you have never done it before. I went greaseless, don't think I am ever going back. Just my 2 Cents.
Umm ok. Yea Iv done it on my 09 700 rhino a few times. Fully serviceing the secondary and primary. With grease. But it also was a greasers roller weight set up. I put 4000 miles on the rhino and never needed a belt for it. But this wolvie looks like this may be a little more pain in the butt than the rhino "location". But is it the same exact way to?? . Just grease the collar on the primary, and pull the spring and pins on the secondary the grease the slide cup.?? And I'm going to go greaseless also. Will I ""just"" need the greaseless stock OEM roller weights?? , and I like how it performs like it is and I don't wanna modifi its stock trim performance. Just less maintenance. Very dust in AZ , I hate grease!
Every 6 months would be great, but once a year as a minimum (know a few guys who wait many years). The first time you clean out the grease, you'll go greaseless. Even if you don't purchase a new sheave, you can drop Hunterworks greaseless weights into your cleaned stock sheave.
