New to the forum. Totally enjoying reading the opinions on here and hoping for some advice. I put some 22g dr pulleys into my 2k km 2020 500 hpe (yep pretty much brand new) and and have experienced heavy v belt rub, squeal and burn when closing the throttle at high speeds and high revs (+5500).
Took variator back apart and all was fitted well, but very clear outer wear to the v belt and clear black marks to the housing above the variator pulley (have included a photo). I have since put the OEM 25g rollers back in and everything is now back to normal. I am wondering if the dr pulleys were too light preventing the variator pulley from opening quickly enough and causing the belt to stay too high in the v pulley causing the damage (the variator case got so hot it melted the plastic outer casing!).
I am also wondering if the newer models donít benefit as much from lighter rollers. I was loaned a 500ie for a few weeks which seemed so much quicker accelerating. My 0-60 time of around 10s really didnít improve too much with the lighter dr pulleys. When I see you tube clips of MP3s doing 0-60 in sub 6s I canít believe there is anything substantially different with the older variators in the older models.
Any help or info greatly appreciated.
All the best
