Did this video help you?

GGBULLETz: i just got my ruck like about 3 weeks ago and i got it on the road today, its awsome but only problem is my acceleration as well i hate when cars tailgate me. so today i bough the polini variator of a local. now my question is can the variator be taken out with a torque wrench or does it have to be an impact wrench ? anyways good video i was wondering how the rollers went in.

Ruckus Piper: @tnerual888 yes I did. Also the kevlar belt makes a difference but anytime you change something be advised that it takes about 20-30 miles for the components to wear in (break in) to get the feel of the improved performance.

Ruckus Piper: The speedo can be moved or kept if you can make a cool looking bracket, but the original wont work on a new bar.

GGBULLETz: yeah man i think im going to use the impact wrench

Ruckus Piper: First you have to accept the fact that it will never be a drag bike. Yes a polini variator w/ 6g weights will help. DR. Pulley sliders are hot now. but I like the rollers for now.The bars can be bought on ebay but make sure you use the same diameter bar as the ruckus-Also be ready to do some work on the modification. drilling -tapping. etc

boogie504: I use an impact on the lowest setting with a strap wrench around the variator so I dont bend or break the fins.. it works good.

13angryBs: thanks for the info, just got my new variator with instruction only in Japanese. that's the one thing I was unsure about.

flavaflav217: hey man i had some problems with the polini variator. It went in just fine and i tightened it up pretty good without an impact.. i used a hand wrench. It would bog on acceleration at 20 mph and stutter. Do you think i tightened it enough or do i have to go full throttle on an impact?? i dont know what im doing wrong.

helltotheyeah22: hey i just my ruckus and my only concern about it is the acceleration, so i was gonna throw in a polini variator to try and fix that. do you get any noticeable gain in acceleration/ top speed? also ive seen another guy on here with those handle bars and i was wondering where you found them and how much do they run...and did you have to move the speedo? it looks badass where its at, just wondering

tnerual888: is this the polini? and do you feel a difference?

Ruckus Piper: @flavaflav217 My guess is eithr the rollers got turned in the variator or the whole thing is hanging up on the short shaft the variator rides on. Go to total ruckus forum and all of the discussion on variator problems are discussed. One thing I learned is that performance parts may take 20+ miles to settle in and start performing.

Ruckus Piper: Oh yea and a riser for the new bar - Cha Ching.

David Fang: I was wonder. I have th esame variator as you but what is wierd is that there is a black rubber part that makes it hard to move the pin. Am I suppose to remove it?

Ruckus Piper: Well you can buy a variator tool or make one. You have to find or make something that will hold the driveface steady while you loosen the nut. Just be careful not to brake any of the fins. You are doing enough research and I'm sure you'll find the right answer here on youtube. Ive seen impact wrenches used but I like using the tool.
