Post Re: Couch scoot build, come on in
well im an idiot because after further review it looks like thats how it supposed to be. I assume then there would be no additional gasket to put in there since the flanges dont sit flush.

Still trying to get answers on this.
I ordered the gasket along with some carbon fiber reeds so im waiting on those to come in. In the meantime i posted something in the parts review area and have never got an answer. Can someone help me out here.


I searched and could not really find a comparison of variators. I see them from $62 for athena to $99 for polini to $134 dr pulley. Can someone shed a little light on what makes one better or different than another

$99 http://www.drowsports.com/product/143/T ... Horizontal


$134 http://enviromoto.ecrater.com/p/1418339 ... tor-yamaha

I know a lot of folks like the Malossi vario and the Stage 6's. I run the S6 and it helps with smooth operation. I've heard mixed reviews about the Athena but I would guess it better than the stock unit. I don’t have a Polini for a Zuma but I do have one for another scoot and it works well and is a quality part. Can't give any advice on the DR. P though. Are you going to 70cc now or are you waiting a while? If you're waiting, I put the vario lower on the list of parts until you have the BBK.

I don't have the same Polini variator you linked to. But I love the operation of the one I have. And I have a feeling that the 9 weight one is even smoother, not to mention more fine tunable.

And I'll add another note. The Drow Sports guys are awesome to deal with. I decided to call in my order to make sure they had it (I had a big run in a few days) And he talked with me for almost an hour about the things he had sitting there. A couple days later I had my parts and was able to make my run. :) He even e-mailed me the minute it was in the box and left his hands for the UPS guy's hands (Or was it USPS?.... doesn't matter.)

I'll also second the Malossi. I hear good things about the Malossi one (Drow was out of them at the time)

Thank you for the reviews on I the brands. I guess I should have been more clear. I was wondering more on how the aftermarket ones are better over the stock parts.

On a different note I'm integrating the blinkers into the brake light. Anyone see a problem with the bulb socket in there? I'm thinking since its just a blinker it won't get to how and melt the plastic?

no problems. was the first mod i did to my 2005....and the only mod i did before i started my mess.

the 2002-2005, i believe, have reflectors there. swap out the reflectors for lenses so that other vehicles notice them better.

I ordered some carbon fiber reeds for the stock reed cage which will be here soon. My question is with the zx-r pipe and the new reeds would that warrant needing to make any changes to the carb(ie rasing the needle or rejetting) My elevation is anywhere between 100-200ft above sea level

Wasn't really planning on it but it looks like my is making brackets for a stretch kit for me. He does quite a bit of his own fabrication including his own 1014 whp 2jz swapped 300zx.

Mocked up a bracket last night to get an idea. So since we bolted it to the existing subframe we now have a pivot point in the front and back of the bracket. It doesn't seem right to me but that's what the kiesler one is like. Thoughts please

What are these kind of bolts called? I'm trying to source a little longer one. This is the one that goes through the subframe to keep it from pivoting that's why it has square shaft

He's getting ready to stick in a new 75mm. Notice it sitting next to the drill to give you an idea of how big it is

I went by there at lunch today they gave me the same blank look as the 2 bolt companies did here. I have been told a couple of times that this is probably custom to the zuma. I did however randomly see that the kiesler stretch kit looks like it has the bolts i need. That would require me to buy the $80 for 2 bolts, so i wont be doing that.
