Hello guys, does anyone knows is there a different type of push pins that can be used instead of the original plastic Push Pins, that take too much time to be removed to get to the CVT box?
I had an idea to use the Quick Release Pins that are 8mm diameter and 10mm long, but they are too expensive around 40-60$ each, or to weld a metal sheet on each hole from inside drill it and to use just a screw.
Can you recommend me something if someone has been trough that already.

Zeus fasteners would probably work

Push pin pliers seem fairly effective to me. I'm not saying there isn't a better idea but it hasn't been a major issue using the push pin pliers. Jmho. Tim

Ford makes a dart that opens with a 1/4 turn . My BRP darts bust lots because dirt gets in them and then they stick and break . I have seen the Ford style on Yamaha and they open when dirty . But they are about a buck each .
This is the best I found with lots of research on this

Yep, the remover works well for the plastic push pins but like the others I would like a better alternative for the cvt cover. Hate takin that off and putting back on.

I got one of these off amazon and it works great. Can have all my center plastics out in just a couple minutes.
That's the same one I use. Works great

if someone could cut the bottom 1/4 off of the CVT cover and make a joint you could bolt the two haves back together. it would save time to not remove the bottom bolts

If you get your clutch setup right.. You really shouldn't need to access the CVT system that much. Am I missing something?

Will you be serving any Kool Aid with that? :smile:

Rubber bands don't like the sand dunes regardless of what clutch you have. Tim

LOL.. Love the response Timesic.. Better be some good COOL AID huh..:wink:. You raise a good point! I'm not a big dune rider which is why I left the ignorance open ended with asking am I missing something.

I love the idea of a better quick release setup, which I would likely buy myself. However, it seems like a solid solution hasn't really jumped out so far. Which is why I think I would be focusing on trying to keep my belt in tact with clutching and I really enjoy the little bit of comfort I get with my razorback gauge as well.

The two seaters at the dunes seem to go long periods while the 4 seaters less miles for sure. I have a feeling if someone doesn't run the dunes they could make a belt last quite a while. Tim

For the clutch cover I think it would be possible to get the bolts with wings on it and a washer with a couple of o rings, I'd be willing to bet you could tighten them almost to spec by hand

I dont run in the dunes at all and have blown a few belts already. Time to spend some cash into the clutches!! :money::wink:

I should have clarified that response was meant to apply to the XDS units.
