PostSubject: Variator Tool   Tue Jul 26, 2011 5:44 pm

I am looking to finally change out my sliders and belt and I need a proper model and place to purchase the Buzzetti variator holding tool. I've seen a few for sale on SIP but I don't want to buy the incorrect model. If someone could link me to the exact piece I wish to purchase I would really appreciate it. For under $40 it seems worth the price to have the proper tool.

Thanks,
Scott

The Buzzetti 5637 looks very close to the Honda variator tool. If the pin depth is the same as the Honda variator tool, then you will need a third hand to hold the variator strongly against the variator for first unscrew or final torque ... otherwise it comes out too easily.

This could easily be perceived as an insult ... even with your rolling on the floor.

I chose not to make make Leroy Beal's variator too, for two reasons
1) Someone has too long of a bolt and cracked their variator face
2) Not portable for extremely long trips

I personally would like the tool for absolute accuracy and for future use. I am quite certain I could take a piece of wood and design with those instructions. I just have a preference for the tool. As far as worrying about me being insulted. It's funny to me and things written down always get taken wrong. It seems as though every time someone writes an email someone else gets offended and its because you can't read someone's face or hear voice inflection, along with a myriad of other social queues that we are conditioned to focus on. So I really just want to get the correct tool and I am merely asking for the exact spot to make such a purchase on line so that I get it right.

The other Honda pulley holder (only available in the USA) is 07AMB-MCTA100.

This is the pulley holder that screws into the holes from the removed aluminum housing and has two other screws to fit into the variator holes with a large hole for the socket to remove the variator nut.

One good thing for me out of this thread is that I know now that I'm not ready to take on this challenge. I just ordered the Dr Pulley sliders (thx, Bigbird) and the new belt is on the way but I don't have an impact gun or a variator tool. Fortunately, I did manage to find a good independent mechanic, with whom I want to build a relationship. So, I'll give this job to him. (Also, he hasn't heard of Dr Pulley - so this should be a good introduction.)

Mark,

I bought an electric impact wrench at harbor Freight for $40. It max's out at 90 ftlb of torque so it works great. I can change out my stuff in about 1/2 hour using this . I made a "Pictorial" for doing this so it really is very easy to do and saves quite a bit of money. But having a mechanic do it is even easier. Razz

Bigbird,
Your link is not about a silverwing.

One can't inspect the clutch without disassembling.

When unscrewing the central bolt...the whole pulley + clutch block comes out in your hands and then you can inspect or change the pads.
The bell stays on the transmission axle.

The Honda tool is only needed when you want the pulley-clutch block taking apart.

Seldom needed.
Example when changing the big spring.

I like to take things apart just to see how they look in there new condition so when I do have a problem and it is not working right. It might give me a reference on the wear and tear ,and what needs to be replaced .Just something to do ,and put back together.

No,not in this case.For what I read on this forum ,if it ain't broke don't
fix it . With 5000 kl on my scoot,it will be years before that time comes.
For now just for curiosity ,rear wheel removal,. front wheel ,drive train,and the plastic. I bought a service manual,2002 to 2010, very expensive,
$137 retail in Canada .I don"t do without it regardless of the price. I have a 750 shadow 1985 service and shop repair manual for sale. I don't need any more .

Gascapdude on ebay does mirror risers/extenders for the Wing - that's where I got mine. Good price, good quality, fast delivery. (just my personal opinion, no connection with him! Smile )
