so, i put a varplus on... it's a
new 50cc cyl
15 del 58 jet
opening the variator was truely the nightmare that everyone says it is, unless you get the right stuff, don't mess with propane, get MAPP! get a big ass wrench, drill some screws into your bench to lock it down... next time i'm going to find my chain wrench, i think that'll help...
anyway, don't mess with the allen screws that come with the varplus, i gave them a shot but, not worth it, just reuse the original if you can.
i tried using a hammer style impact driver, that wasn't working but, the screws came out like butter with an 18v dewalt impact driver.
the varplus installed like a dream, slid right on, all the weights looked good, not rough.
here's the issue, i searched but, didn't really see an answer.
with this setup, the variator wont open fully even with the heaviest weights.
i would guess my current top end is about 28mph... gotta give it a better test tomorrow and see how she real preforms.
wondering if there are options to increase the roller weight.
also, should i try some teflon lube on the rollers possibly?
