Thank you. Any idea if the variator tool could be made from a less 16 gauge steel instead of 1/8" aluminum?

spend thousands on a scoot and you want to skimp on a proper tool. if you break the cooling fins it will cost you more than $53 to replace the vari. but its your scoot.

You won't even be the first one here to break them with this method. Listen to O.A.D.It is good advice.
