Contrast Spring MALOSSI
stiffness: reinforced, yellow
Retrofit variator springs are an important and intelligent purchase when tuning your automatic scooter. Why? Horsepower hefty motors tend to outrun their belts. In order to keep the herd from stampeding, a reinforced vario spring exerts pressure on the rear fan belt half; belt is held tighter - making it harder to slip and slide. Motor tuning without reinforced vario springs is about as successful as snowboarding in Miami.
SIP-TIP! Because the fan belt is pressed out against the heftier springs on the variator, you‘ll need heavier rolls!
The springs available from MALOSSI for the converter unit (driven pulley) are constructed using a silicium steel alloy which guarantees extra stability during use under extreme conditions and operating temperatures. This is reached through a high proportion of carbon in the steel alloy and a special tempering process for the outer surface. In addition MALOSSI variator springs are dynamically balanced and specifically developed for individual demands.
They are available in three categories:
- Hardened : High stiffness
- Extra hardened : Very high stiffness
- Racing : Developed for heavy duty use and racing
SIP TIP : The MALOSSI converter grease was specifically developed for use at higher motor RPM. It is available in two versions : MRG grease and Racing grease.
