I had my primary rebuilt last year , and noticed this year it was making more noise then usual . Put a new belt on but noticed all three of my rollers were offset from where they should be lined up , is this a big problem or fix
theres always the chance it was assembled incorrectly or wrong parts were used. can you see the plastic shim washers on each side of the rollers? your borderline on the year when the roller inside diameter was increased from 8mm to 9mm.
in my opinion, 500 miles wouldnt wear things out unless they were wrong to start with or other parts were worn out like the movable sheave bushing or the slider buttons on the spider.
Turns out that I have to replace the primary. I have a couple options to look into and wondering which would be the best. I'm looking into buying a used one of a 1996 vmax but seller said didnt know how it would would work in my sled . It would other clutch higher or lower . Other option would be to purchase another used one but with heavier weights so won't rev as high . Anyone know ofte specs for the 1996 would be the same as 1997 . Would like it to run as close to stock as possible
