Variators original design has 38 x 6,35mm balls on the AV/AU36 and 37 Mobys with notches in the movable cheek shaft so it clicked through "3 speeds". Then they went to 6 x 11,9mm balls, then lost the notches, then just the 3 or 4 ball flavours.

The balls are flyweights that work against the tension of the counter spring on the lower engine mount. More balls will have the variator go from low speed to high speed faster, less balls and the variator will take longer to get to the top 'gear'.

If you are going to castrate your variator you would need to run 2 balls in a 4 ball cage (or a aftermarket 2 ball cage) so you can maintain balance. You would then want to run with a launch lever so you can over ride the flyweights on demand and make it semi automatic.

Alternatively you can just stuff the counter spring to add more tension against the balls.
