CVT Question

I am currently installing the Dalton Clutch Kit that I ordered through Hunterworks (Excellent shipping by the way ) and I am trying to adjust my belt deflection at the same time. My deflection was aprox 1.5" before i started. In the service manual it says how to account for the deflection, but I don't know what the factory shim sizes are and i don't have my Calipers here. Does anyone know what the factory shim sizes are?

Also my CVT is pretty dirty inside, is there any suggestions for what to use to clean it out? Is there any places that should be lubed up? What type of lube should I use? Regular grease?

Please help!!

Zack,

There is no lube in there except inside the secondary sheave. Not sure what I would clean it with but when you are finished use a degreaser that won't leave a film on the surface of the sheaves where they touch the belt.

Mickey gave a good way to adjust the belt when you have it apart. Set it where the top of the belt is even with the top of the secondary sheave.

I have no idea what the shim thickness is but there is only two shims and you will take one or both out.

I have the manual, but it has the P/N of the different ones to buy to adjust it inbetween... I guess its going to be a test fit time...

Thanks for the help though!

Is the dust inside nothing to worry about? It seems kinda strange that there is no filter or anything from the factory to protect the dust from getting in.

Thanks, i will try using some brake cleaner....

I would just blow it out if it is just dust and wipe the sheaves off. I have a manual and don't remember reading about having to buy different shims. There are two already in there, one is thin and one is thick. You would remove them according to how much your belt was out.

There are 5 diffrent shims you can get for the sheaves. I went to local dealer and bought the ther 3 sizes other than the two that came in it. I took out the smaller shim and it was still too loose, then the larger shim and it was too tight, so I got the other3 sizes and got it just right.

mine came with a .3mm thin and a 1.0mm thick, the first time i set it i just took out the .3mm and it was better but still jerky on take off. the last time i took out the 1.0mm and used the .3mm , if yours is measuring 1.5" i would take out the thick one and be done with it, only problem is it might squeal a little when idling in gear. the .6 or .8 would probably be perfect but i couldnt find one in town.

See how much I know, I didn't know there were optional shims. I have not needed to adjust my belt yet.

I ended up first trying to take out the thick one and that put my deflection at aprox 3/4". I then tried taking out the thick one and putting the thin back in and it put my deflection at aprox 1.25". So, then i took it apart once again, and put the thick one back in and left it at 3/4". Do you guys forsee any issues other then the slight squeal at idle? I really don't want to take it apart again (I am getting pretty good at it... lol) to add in a shim that will prob. take a week to come in.
