Variator Fins Chipped off!?

Post by alexrody1 »

Hello All,

Just purchased a 2016 roughhouse sport and wanted to de-restrict the variator.

What i thought would be simple maintenance turned out to be a frustrating experience. When using pliers/wrench to hold the variator plate in place as i broke the variator nut loose, 2 of the fins crumbled under the pressure. Is there a way to get this plate off, down to the restriction spacer without balding every fin i have on the variator plate?
Do i really need an airgun to rip it off?
As far as i can tell, the fins are just for air movement, not a huge deal to replace right?
