Using grease on greaseless sliders and weights will allow dirt to stick to the ramps and wear on aluminum. Wouldn't it be better to use a dry lubricant designed for snowmobiles, if you feel a lubricant is nesessary? I have over 2500 miles on my original set with no wear.
i got rid of the cvt filter after you told me of your experience ROO. Ran it last weekend and did not smell the belt like before or maybe it is my new JBS sheave, new belt. Those filters are a joke!Do you run a filter on the CVT intake? If not you have to have dust flowing through along with the cooling air.
