Went to change out weights/variator.

Nut came off easy... Way too easy then I found this.

Uber suprised the nut stayed on there this long, I tried to re tighten and it would tighten up but flies off after start.

Open to suggestions... (Preferably semi-cheap ones :D )

I don't thnk you can rethread the crank so you'll either need a new crank or a new engine

Was afraid of that... I'm going to try to get another nut and rethread if no one suggest something else before I go that route.

ive heard of people stripping the splines from not installing the variator right and every person that has done that has either had to by a whole new engine or the crank but requires lots of work to get it going back again.

if you have been messing with the variator prior to this then you fucked up, and if you didn't then the previous owner/Mechanic did not know what they were doing.

Anyways you can probably get by, by rethreading it with a smaller nut but just be careful not to touch the splines OR get a new crank OR new/used engine.

If it were me, I'd try rethreading it first, considering that your other options kind of suck. Hopefully it works out.
In for pics!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It just kills me to have it sitting in the building and its finally nice outside, plus funds are practically non existent at the moment.

I agree with you guys, if it needs a crank it will get a lot more when it gets cracked open. Just trying to weigh my options, because I literally live in crater hole so no shops around to do anything so I will basically have to ship my stuff to get it done. So I would want to ship to one place that could maybe do it all.

I don't mind the tuning part with the big bore, that's what I got you guys (and girls) for :lol:

Haha... Not a big fan of tuna. Just wondering that since it was in decent running condition (besides a little idle lope at first start up which smoothed out as it warmed up) but with 3k on the clock was wondering what else I should look into.

If I don't come up with a plan then, it will literally set for months until I can afford a 66cc engine, and as much as I would love to have a big bore. I would rather be riding it.
