I just removed my primary to send to james and noticed there was a lot of black fine dust in there. Inside the cover was clean. I only have maybe 200 miles tops on these and it was spotless when I put them in there. They now are starting to get a flat spot on them. I had them in my King Quad too and th esame thing happened, so bad that the covered wore to where they were shot. What causes this? Seems like the round covers are better for wear.

the round wear even faster...i have a set of the rounds with 60 miles on them with a 1/4 wide flat spot already..it depends on what kind and how much dust you ride in..once they get a flat spot the wearing slows down..more contact area...belt dust is normal

I use a TINY bit of grease, few hundred miles with no flat spots so far. but always the black dust.
So would you say that using a TINY bit of grease works with the greasless weights? Reason I'm asking is I have the hot rod sheave in hand ready to install.
James, any thoughts?

So you dont have to use the metal cover with the screws if your greaseless? The wear isnt bad yet, I was just suprised since it had such low mileage on them. My KQ were pretty worn with only about 800 miles.

Is there any reason james to either run or take off the plate?

The cover keeps whatever you use for lube from getting on the belt, if you don't use grease leave the 8 screw plate off for heat dissipation.....correct?
