1st venture w/Burgman & Slider install

After 5 hours I finished my first experience with my NOS 2013 Burgman 400's CVT.....cleaning, deglazing & installing an 18g set of Dr P. sliders and pieces. 10 mos & 4,200 miles

The cheap 12V Harbor Freight impact gun did remove the 2 nuts w/no issues - using only a spare 12V scooter battery!

Although I've faithfully cleaned the fan filter -there was a lot of sand/dirt and corrosion on the front end of the metal CVT cover - so I scrubbed and buffed it and painted with black high-temp paint.

The roller carrier had a tablespoon of fine black stuff....the dirty rollers were not flat spotted.

The pulleys had a fine groove low down. I cleaned them but did not disturb the surface.

Cleaning and painting took an hour or two - working with my new torque wrench took time. I made story marks on the nuts just in case.

Ran the engine before buttoning everything back up - & sure enough, the belt was pinched and the front nut came loose in seconds.
Oh yes, the new "not $5" O-ring worked great - perfect fit! (from the O-Ring Store)
Will take it for a first ride tomorrow, sunrise.

5 hours later....all buttoned up. Glad I bought a bag of those push/clip/rivets!

Sweet! Buy why paint the CVT cover?

He said he had a bit of corrosion on the front of the cover. I actually did the exact same procedure to my NOS '13 400 this weekend.... albeit with almost 12 months and nearly 13,000 miles on mine. I had significantly more dust and definite flat spotting of my rollers. You're going to be happy on that first ride with sliders. I just put the 18g in mine and I couldn't be happier. In addition to the increased top-end and decreased RPMs, I have also noticed a definite Improvement in fuel mileage.

Good going Stig, looks like you have done a good job. I will be looking forward to hear how she does. I'm sure you're going to like it a lot.
Just for future reference, when tighening the variator nut, I keep squeezing the belt together between the pulleys, then pushing the slack in the belt belt towards the front, as I slowly tighten the nut. Once done, I fire it up and watch it run, then shut it down and recheck the torque on the nuts.

@stig , @E.D. - did you modified plate (edges) or any other part of CVT before installing Dr. Pulley SR's? Also do you have stock or aftermarket CVT?

I will receive 16g Pulley's in a few days and really curious about their installation instruction on latest models (I'll be installing on L5 and it should be the same as for L3)

Good report.

My 2011 at 22000 miles had significant Roller Flat Spots.

I went to 19GM Sliders.

All that - changing effort and performance report (RPM VS MPH) are topics I put on this site sometime ago. Many pictures with the topics.
