Any advice about drive belt replacement. The official shop manual tells you to use a special "universal holder" to remove the drive pulley face. Anybody got a workaround?

Use an OEM Honda belt. Cheap Chinese ones just don't last. Also use the search function on here to look for instructions on how to make a variator tool to help you with the job. Good luck.

You can use an impact gun or air ratchet to remove the variator belt but do not use such a tool to replace the bolt. Use the above tool and a proper torque wrench to install the bolt.

Using an air ratchet or impact gun may well cause the variator pulley to be installed cockeyed or end up pinching the belt in the variator.

Also, the belt gets mounted with the arrows facing the direction of rotation.

I made mine out of 3/4" plywood and appropriate bolts it worked just fine.

This is my homemade/DIY variator and clutch holder tool, I've had this for a long time, it's adjustable, bolts length/size can be changed and/or rearranged for differents scooters, etc. Just to give an idea.

That's a well designed tool but simple enough to make.  I've been using a holder type tool for power steering pump pulleys just added some bolts that fit in holes. It's a bit short and have to brace it on center stand but it works very well.  drive belt replacement 1f44d  drive belt replacement 1f44d
