Re: Pocket bike CVT setup
I have the CAG with High compression head and big bore whoozamawhatsit. Didn't like me, ports were NOT chamfered, didn't like to start, BUT besides it being of questionable durability, delivered really exceptional power. And that's before I got in there to really screw with it.
I also had the CVT, but somebody forgot to tighten a bolt on it, so it spun the backplate to the variator, and melted the variator weights. That was a major WTF.
So yeah. What you have there is a chain drive gearbox. The CVT is a thick, stout beast with a plastic cover. Also. be aware that mounting the CVT changes drive direction, so you'll either need a jackshaft or need to mount the motor Backwards (I know, I know) and drive the whole ba$tard from the pedal side. Shift kit mod maybe?
