Vespa Variator Woes

Chris Carleton /

Did the vario swap with a Dos 69er Variator and 100 mm rear cheeks. Question is the variator seems to want a 1\2" belt and the rear wants a 3\8"? It doesn't want to variate fully and rattles like hell at idle. Any ideas?

No part of the front vario should rattle or move once tightened. If you're talking about belt slap, than you need to tighten your belt.

Check to make sure the stationary ramp plate on the variator isn’t out of true. I had to machine one that spacer was welded on crooked.
