wont effect your top speed .,but youll have a slight bog on take off due to much belt deflection,meaning your belt will climb up the primary before it actually engages, also higher engagenent rpm ,,which is like take off in 2 nd gear,to fix it pull a spacer out off the secondary to closes the sheaves,it will work the way it is,and this is assuming your center to center distance is right,and right belt
Yeah sorry, I guess I got that backwards. Xc Special got it right. Anyways, I'm not familier with the Bender racing clutch. But on the standard secondary, if you pull it apart, you'll find there are some thin washers in the center of it. If you took one or two of them out, the sheaves will close tighter on the belt and thus force the belt up hight in the secondary. The Bender clutch must have something similar to this. Some way to adjust belt height (deflection).
Did you change brands of belt? There are sometimes suttle differences between brands. Are your clutches aligned properly (center to center and offset)?
To pull the secondary, simply clamp on the brakes to keep it from spinning, then take the bolt off that holds it in place (be sure to not lose any of the washers that MAY be on the head of the bolt). After that you should be able to slide the secondary off the jack shaft.
yeah it was an original belt from yamaha and i put a genaric belt on that was made for my machineit doesnt sit all the way up but it sits level with the sheath the old one was about an eigth of an inch below. so i should probably get a little better proformance then right?
