Thanks for re-igniting this interest in me. I guess. Damnit. I had absolutely no plans to touch my moby and now here I am taking apart the variator because I couldn't exactly remember what all I had done. I really haven't messed with this bike that much since all the mods I did in 2014-15. I only occasionally get it running to race at MopedGP, just a distant afterthought to my other race bike.
Appreciate the shout-outs in the vid! Can't take any credit though, I definitely had only half assed followed what Jbot did. Back when he was modding the moby variator in that thread "Slipper clutch lever on Moby stock clutch" I had just started messing with my moby and following along. I also did the stock moby aux ports from "Hey Dummy! Let's get all Aux ex' n shit"
Between Jbot and Rebel Moby is how I did all my moby mods. I had decided to keep all 4 clutch pads and cut them down by about a half inch and tack them much further up the sides to control their travel. This was following Rebels method of adding a rivet, except tack welding was much easier and modifiable to me. It slips... ok. I'm now considering removing 2 pads completely to see what happens, and from there may explore the springs like Jbot did if I'm still not satisfied.
I removed the starter shoes but had stopped short of removing the whole plate assembly and welding in the shaft and posts. I think I'll do that now.
While I'm at it I plotted out 6 - 1" holes to be cut to lighten the clutch drum.
