Best CVT Advice Ever
Every now and then you run across something which reminds you of an important tech checksheet you put somewhere. A piece of paper you kept with a checklist of things to guage in the operation of some machine you use. Every now and then you find it again. Sometimes you find the sheet but the machine is long gone. Sold or given away.
Whenever that piece of paper reappears you read through its contents again. Chances are its oily. Maybe even a little filthy with that garage dampened dirt that sticks to everything. Just finding it and realizing what you're holding is kind of a momentary boon. There are little drawings accompanying some of the strange notes. Little more than quick doodles in the margin. But you remember them, you know their references.
Those kinds of notes have kept machines owned by every kind of garage and shade tree mechanic in the running for as long as machines have served man.
Today I found the modern equivalent in another blog by Combatscoot. I can't believe my good fortune because not only is it excellent advice but it also reminds me that I used to employ (apparently) more common sense than than I do now when it comes to these sorts of things.
These new modern scooters, these CVT final drive machines are almost too easy to maintain. Appliance easy. Maybe that's too easy a rut to get into and we need clear reminders that even so, maintenance needs to be balanced with common sense. To ask the right questions, as it were.
So without further adieu...
Best damn blog ever.
