Okay I was out riding with my timing freshly tuned (RUNS GREAT, OH YEAH!), but I noticed a problem: When I stopped the ped, the variator had not disengaged, i.e. the engine was still in its physical full-throttle position. I knocked it back into place just fine (I didn't hit it very hard, I wouldn't force such a thing too much) and when I tried turning it on and off again it maxed out and decelerated just fine, with no real sticking.
HOWEVER, I don't want to take any chances, I suspect that I just need to grease the variator (through that infernal grease nipple?) and this is something that had been on my mind for a while now anyway.
Has anybody done this? is there an easy way to do it? how should I go about doing it if I don't have a grease gun with a nozzle that fits that nipple? I heard it was a pain in the ass to do, so any help would be appreciated.
