Wife and I got caught in 1 and a half hour of grid lock crawl over the weekend and I got the dreaded "glazed clutch bell" from it. So I pull the bell off to clean and sand the shoe pads and inside of the bell and while I was in there I checked the variator. No strange wear, and Im now at 7500 miles. Now this is worth noting=everything is normal until I get above 65 MPH, and then its at 8500 rpm's at 70 MPH. 9000 rpm's at 75 MPH. 9500 rpm's at 80 MPH. Basically, got an extra 500 rpm's added as a unwanted "bonus" after I get above 65 MPH. Belt is still well within spec. No strange markings on variator or torque driver. Only thing thats strange is the clutch bell is starting to blue from heat really bad. Clutch itself looks normal and the clutch pads also measure within spec. Did not check the rollers yet, it was starting to rain. Oh, and still the same bonus rpm's after the cleaning/sanding session. Do need a back tire, mine is wore out. Luckily a friend gave me a Michelin Pure Power for FREE!
