It's under the front variator pulley, like a derbi. I forgot that it doesn't move at idle. I've been into vepsa's lately which always move and was like oh shit. I'll find my hobbit one day.

I like this alot. Tied in with a fab'ed subframe you could really refine the design and make it flawless.

Cool deal

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

now if only there was a way to make this automatic so you don't have to push on it with your feet.

My idea for stock subframes is awesome. Two long rectangular pieces of billet bolted to the top and bottom rails of the sub, then the pivot bolt is tapped into the top aluminum bar so its rigid and won't need a nut. The bottom billet piece would have a slot milled into it lined with poly so the assembly could ride in it and so it couldn't kick out.

I'll be doing this mod to my other stock hobbit swingarm eventually

I love watching you create stuff. Wanna do one on an Urban now? Kidding, I know how much you love them ;)

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

Looks like after both belts do their stretching ya might need to go down 1 inch for the back belt

AX26 or 4L260.

I really don't want to add a tensioner if I don't have to. Maxed out now with wheel all the way back and it's ok, but any more stretch and it'll get slacky

When I first saw your post I figured you must have been copying an mtd yard tractor design and using one of these pulleys. I see now it's definitely simpler and cheeper the way you went about it. Very rad. If you use a pulley like this in place of what you are using you could double your cvt range tho and still have manual over ride control

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

That's a cool lil device,

But I think I'm pretty much set for gearing, it would also space the belts out farther than they are now.... and I wouldn't be comfortable with them any more offset.

Neat, you could build a lever like Jbot's and use that on a single speed Vespa or similar belt drive to get some more range.

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

this is cool jbot rules

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

I miss you nice lady.

Hope all is well with you and yours

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

The one thing I've noticed in my test rides is that the bike still shifts fine without the pedal. It's really interesting.

Only time I use the pedal is if ripping dicks mode is required.

Ordered a new AX29 and AX26 now that the prototype is a proven winner. NOTE: I moved 1 inch shorter for the rear belt due to stretching

This mod would be incredible on a variated Vespa, as the pulleys open opposite directions normally, and they already use thin belts.

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

deep down I think someone might care

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

i'm just waiting until willD weighs in with a serious response before i form my own opinion.

Holy fuck.

This is rad.

JBOT you just killed the game.

Looks amazing!

Maybe I can try it at creature rally for 2 min? Hahaha

Holler!!!

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

If it were a normal hobbit I'd say yes. But that top tank hobbit is weird to ride unless you're used to it. So no

I'll do the same mod to my 50cc hobbit once all the bugs get worked out on this.

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

A belated congratulations. Genius as always

Re: New dual variated launch lever, brought to you by Crazy Wayne and Jbot

Floating cag pocketbike caliper over assembly as a variation lock.

Left hand lock as all of my VlocksTM Works as you'd expect.

Gotta paint some of it black cuz it's too silvery.
