John,

Forgive me, I'm too lazy to look - how many miles on your bike? Is it possible that the clutch / variator needs a good cleaning?

I'm really leaning toward the variator needing a good cleaning.

Those belts do have a bit of a slap in the stock configuration. Maybe it's time to install a J. Costa?

I'm hoping some of the vastly more informed members of this forum will chime in here. I've really got no more clue than what I've offered Smile.

Which belt did you use??

The OEM belt tends to "slap".

I had the "slap" for a little while with the OEM belt.
When I replaced my belt with a Mitsuboshi Kevlar Belt from http://www.scootertrap.com/SilverWing600.htm, I have not had any belt "slap" with the Mitsuboshi.

Thanks for the feed back the belt used was a standard honda belt, dont know if everything else was cleaned at the time of changing.
So next question is how easy are these things to take apart and clean???

Easy to remove and clean ... just a bunch of screws.

If you are going to check the variator weights, then you will need a variator tool to hold the variator. Some people make their own tool, but I heard of one person cracking their pulley ... so I purchase the Honda tool.

I also read that some people after cleaning the belt area used a dry lubricant (like graphite) in the top and bottom of the housing area where the belt scuff marks appear to reduce the slap. I do not recall any post reviews/results of the dry lubricant technique.

My last crash I did head-butt-head-butt-post-----hospital Crying or Very sad but no broken bones :D all internal bruising .
Or you can get up enough speed to skim off the surface like a pebble skimmimg the waves(only recommend this style in open country with no posts or walls also change butt cheeks when sliding as may get hot...

Nah John... that water skimming trick doesn't work at all. I'm still pickn' out grass from places where I didn't even know I had places.

Your friendly U-boat Commander...
