Hi guys been doing some work today on the swing in a cold shed. Final drive oil has been changed the stuff that came out was quite dark' the new stuff was like so clear in comparison it definitely needed doing and it's probably its first change 10 years old and 13k miles. Belt and rollers are off ready for new going on so everything has been cleaned with brake and clutch cleaner as there was a lot of black dust everywhere. The original rollers that came off spin if you put them over your finger like a ring but these malossi 1s that came with the kit don't. The plastic outer and metal inner are as 1 if you get my meaning. Are they OK to install? And dose the chunky metal spindle that sits in the middle of the roller housing need and lube or grease of any kind. Many thanks.

Leave, well-enough, alone. Don't over think this. Just put the Malossi rollers in.

The metal insets in the rollers are there to add a specific weight which, in turn, effects how the 'transmission' shifts. The plastic outer & metal inner assembly are the roller. The rollers, ahem... roll up the variator ramps which, in turn, allows the belt in the variator to rise up and alter the 'transmission' ratio.

No need to lube those weight inserts. However it helps to lube the variator ramps with a Teflon based dry lube. We use a product named B'laster Dry Lube with Teflon. There is probably something similar available on your side of the pond.

OK il fit the malossi rollers and see how it goes. Regarding lube or grease I meant the big heavy Central spindle not the rollers. Its quite a heavy chunk of metal that slides out from the centre

[Admin note]: A mist of that same Teflon-based spray lubricant would be okay to use on the variator boss.

Well got to say all work carried out so far has gone really well. New shocks new spark plugs air and oil filters final drive oil plus new belt and rollers. Honda build quality has shone through with these jobs and it's been a pleasure to do them. Of course with the wonderful help from fellow swing rider's all over the globe. Thanks again guys.
