I love my 500 but I struggle with one thing: it feels like the motor is running on a too high “gear” when I’m in traffic with a lot of acceleration and breaking. It specifically happens when accelerating around 2600-2900rpm. I have recently installed Dr Pulley 21gr (from original 25gr) but I should have gone lighter, wanted it to be smooth and wanted to avoid a too on-off feel.. got Dr Pulley sliders too. Any tips or similar experiences? I am considering a) a “fuzzy washer” but I don’t know where to buy one, b) a set of lighter (18gr?) rollers and c) a new belt. I noted that my belt had made marks on the inside of the variator cabinet, see picture, I don’t know why.
All input is welcome.
