It's an interesting CVT box, but it would only be useful when the motortorque is too low. In my case I have to limit the torque with the clutch to keep the controller alive. If I'd use the CVT instead, it would imediately switch to the fastest gearing ( in my imagination at least)
I wouldn't suggest to use the motorshaft to drive something. The power of the motor comes from the bell. The shaft should only work as the guiding centerpoint.
Here in the Netherlands it's not allowed to have gearboxes with more than one gear. ( I'm talking about the dutch minibike challenge) Therefor I didn't look much into those semiautomatic or CVT gearboxes. There is also no room left in the engine department. Even less in an electric version...
Probably for dirt-bikes or mid
Anyways, today I had a few nice laps on the karttrack.
I had several technical problems with the carb and exhaustmounts. ( all solvable and not unexpected )
I twisted my left knee and ankle, when I cornered too hard. In other words a perfect racing day
I spoke to the admin of the dutch minibike forum and he was interested to see some pictures. My workmate who sold his selfmade frame to me, will start a buildblog in the dutch forum and hopefully next spring we'll have something to show.
