I double checked the rear clutch, it doesn't look like the clutch shoes or anything else is coming in contact with the pulley. I marked the variator and the belt only rides 3/4 of the way up but when I take the belt off and close the variator I can see that where the belt is riding at top RPM is where the variator cheeks are completely closed.
I was just riding it around to see how the variator/clutches looked at certain RPMs and the rear variator somehow got stuck into the "open" position and I'm unable to close it, don't know how that could happen considering the contra is pushing on that inner cheek. I guess I'll pull the clutch, swap out contras and make sure everything is opening as far as it should but everything looked like it was moving how it was supposed to before the clutch just did this bs. These things are more of a headache than French bikes
