I put 500+ miles on the stock clutch with no issues, befor switching to va CVTech.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to respond. It is helping to put my mind at ease. I think I will get a belt to have on hand for the first few times out. Is it possible to change the belt without removing the primary? What would I need to have on hand or in the glove box to get this done in the field?
Keep the replies coming if you have had troble free miles on a stock machine.
Are they 10mm or 8mm? I forget.I believe you will need a 1/4" drive rachet with 10mm socket and a long extension to remove the clutch cover. Then your factory tool kit has a threaded rod included. That is used on the secondary clutch.It threads into one of the 3 holes. As it threads in, it opens the secondary so you can get the belt on. You put the belt onto the primary first with the belt arrow pointing forward, then when the secondary is open enough the belt will go onto it. Then unscrew the threaded rod and your secondary will close onto the belt to tighten it up. Wah la, now you can put your cover back on. I suggest you carry a pair of gloves with you so you dont burn your hands when changing the belt. All the parts will be hot.
