Hey guys,
so I am transferring my machined sheave to my new grizzly.
When I did the clutch last time I think I used the wrong grease for part of this. I got the ultramatic grease for the rollers. I know that is correct, but I am pretty sure I used that to grease everything else. Just some random reading here in the last few weeks has lead me to believe that I am supposed to use a different grease (bel-ray or something)

My big question, what grease to use.
And where exactly should be greased on the primary and the secondary.

Last time i did this I watched a ton of videos, but I don't recall any of them specifying a certain grease for the shafts, so in my stupor, I just used the ultramatic grease.

Luckily it has not been many miles and not hard riding. But want to do it right this time.

Thanks!
Joe

Use the Yamaha grease on all of the grease points of the primary. The spec for the secondary is Belray assembly grease.

Hey Bill, How's everything with you?

... if Just Because i Said..said that he's got it backwards.....From Belray's website "The Assembly Lube is about 40% molybdenum disulphide which is a solid lubricant".

"Bel-Ray Assembly Lube is a high molybdenum disulfide content lubricant perfect for easy assembly and disassembly. Its exceptional anti-wear and lubricating properties will minimize wear during break-in. Clings to all metal surfaces and is ideal for providing start-up lubrication of newly assembled engine parts such as camshaft lobes. Helps prevent thread strippinng and allows accurate torquing. Impervious to water and not affected by most acids and alkalis, it prevents galling and seizing of fasteners, press-fit components and spline connections."

JBS is peddling the urea grease for the primary as an alternative for Yamaha grease.

For the roller weights I am using ultramatic grease.

What grease on the "shafts" on the primary( between shaft and spacer and sheave i guess sounds correct.
The secondary? the bikes have only less than 500 miles on it, the grease inside the secondary looks good yet, but I should grease the shaft also when the secondary goes back on?
I think it should be the Bel Ray stuff also, correct?

If your bike has 500 miles on it and has never been swamped , don't bother servicing the secondary. I serviced mine at almost 4000miles when I added a stiffer spring, and the grease was still in excellent shape. I ended up cleaning it anyways. I used Lucas full synthetic grease as thats all I have in my garage. I also put a thin layer grease on both primary and secondary splined shafts.

As fare as the primary goes be careful not to put grease on the shim ( if your doing the shim mod), and the collar that the movable sheave rides on.
Reason is the grease will make its way onto your belt and sheave surfaces.

These CVTs don't have grease nipples or "zerts", if that's what your looking for.
Check out some YouTube videos on servicing your ultramatic transmission. Afterwards you'll get a good understanding of what to do and look for.

P.S.

The weights are under the cam plate.

Rick- Think old "Just Because I said" mentioned that he didn't think it was thick enough to last and would thin out real quick. No idea if he's right or wrong. I've always been under the thought that it was for start up of a new engine rebuild and prevent it from galling or worse. It being called "Assembly" doesn't help much either. I've used Grizz Grease and the Poly on the secondary and haven't had a problem. Then again I'm in there between 1500 and 2000 miles to clean and relube.
Doing great and did a lot of riding this year, hope you did the same. Looking forward to Taylor and riding with you again this upcoming year. Bill

Thanks for all the responses,

But last specific question. On the primary and secondary shaft, when I slide the primary and secondary back on, what grease do I use there. i previously used the ultramatic grease for this, but when I took it off this time, it seems kinda broken down and chunky, thats why I think it was the wrong grease. High temp waterproof wheel bearing grease seems like the better choice.

In the primary, i use the ultramatic grease for the rollers, that is not the issue.

Just want to be sure I get everything perfect and right.
Thanks
