I'm confused. You had 5.9 gm rollers, and when you went to 5.5 gms, you lost top speed, so you ordered even lighter 5.0 gm rollers?? What was your reasoning there?

Well just swapped to 5.0g sliders, gates Kevlar belt, and blue clutch spring. Time to take it out for a test ride. My new impact wrench made it soooo much easier!

Reasoning was I lost top end from not having any power to keep gaining speed. Not from running out of rpm. The 5.5 sliders sucked at 7500 rpm. For whatever reason they had no power. So I did the belt and clutch spring. Wow what a difference. The 5.0g sliders were wayyyy too light. 35 mph was 8500 rpms. Swapped back in the 5.6g rollers that I thought were 5.9 and I'm back up to speed. My low end is awesome and I'm pulling up hills. Only problem is 45 mph is like 9200rpm. I don't know if that's what everyone else sees or if that is too high of rpm. Didn't have enough flats on my way into work to see what I could hit and there was a 20-30mph cross wind.

I hope you used a torque wrench when you re-installed! (24 ft-lbs for variator/drive face; 29 for clutch)

Yeah, I thought 5.0 gm would be too light given what you were describing. Glad you got your speed back!

I thought 5gram would be too light with a more aggressive spring. it worked good but I ended up using 4.5gram and settling there. the rpms were high enough to throw the light weights high enough for me to tickle the 70s.

yep I use a torque wrench too. Just need a non windy day and a long enough stretch to see what I can end up top end.

Well a little update I got it running like a champ. Rollers work better than sliders for me. I did take the cdi off and went back to stock so I'm hitting the rev limiter at 43 mph but man is it fast to there! Might throw it back on soon. I also attempted to make my own custom seat cover. It looks ok but the vinyl I used is marine grade and I couldn't stretch it enough to get the seems sewn the way I wanted.

Well I finally decided to go all out and do custom wheels and front disc brakes. Waiting on my two piece wheels to be cut and parts are starting to roll in!

This is how it sits right now

Decided if I'm going to do it to do it with the stuff I really want and not half ass. So Hot Lap exhaust it is!

Well I had an issue I had a header stud snap off and I just couldn't get it out so I just picked up a spare motor I traded for parts. Got the valves shimmed because they were super tight and it started right up. Now only problem is it starts and runs fine but if you take it up to throttle and let of it will die. Then when you get it running it kind of sputter back fires. I assume it's just getting too much fuel. I reused my carb the way it was so time to tune again!

And just like that she is gone! Some piece of shit stole it over Memorial Day weekend which also happens to be my birthday weekend. Happy Birthday to me!!! So now I'm dealing with insurance and it doesn't look like I'm going to get enough money to rebuild one just like this. So as of now I don't know what I'm going to do. I'd like to get another one and rebuild it the way I wanted this one but another orange one is going to be hard to find. Still want to stay GET if I get a new one.

Yeah I ended up trading it for the motor.

Thanks guys I think I know what I want if I cant find another orange one. Talked with insurance and they will be giving me market value for a 2011 and I have $1000 optional equipment policy but they only pay roughly 30% of new. So technically I need to come up with $3000 in receipts to get the $1000. But I have a $500 deductible. Lesson learned when you mod one have it insured for extra!
