Re: CVT pulley stop bolt failure on a 2003

this is a well documented phenomenon, and thre are a few great youtube flicks that show the damage in full detail.

Primary Pulley bolt failure video

Stress failures can occur in any parts... wish there was an easy way to replace the bolt every 20-30k miles...

as for the guys concern, what would have I done if I was in such and such a lane... well what would you have done if the chain on a chain drive bike had broken or the final gear drive on a shaft driven bike had give out...

I have only heard of a dozen reported failures that are attributed to this part... granted the overall damage from it can be very excessive... hope it doesn't happen to anybody anytime soon...

Happy Riding . . . . .

Re: CVT pulley stop bolt failure on a 2003

It is clear now that Suzuki had a problem with installing inferior bearings. Most failure's can be traced down to a seized bearing. I own a 2003 with 29000 Miles on the clock and so far had no problem.

The description of the problem in that article is incorrect. If the adaptor had seized and froze then the engine would have stopped. What happened is that it sheared the pulley splines, in the same manner as Burgermann's Burgie.

In any case it's good to see that the BurgmanUSA community is finally acknowledging that the belt failures are not caused by a weakness in the belt, and that the belt truly is a lifetime component.
