I’ve decided to go a different route with my bumblebee and cherry elites and swap in gears for better acceleration, instead of top speed.

Yellow Elite going from 8.44:1  secondary helical to >>> 9.2:1 secondary ruima straight cuts

Red Elite going from 7.4:1 malossi primary straight cut to >>> 8.44 secondary helical

NOTES:

Ran into some snags, had to swap gear covers as well and found ’01 has single bearing cover, while the ’98 has dual bearings!

Also note spacing washer used in place of stock plastic gear on secondary shaft. This washer is same as a Jog style large spline crank variator bushing washer, can purchase from vento.com for those interested. It is important to have so you do not have metal on metal contact between the steel gears and aluminum outer trans cover.

Don’t forget to apply brake greace on drum contact points to avoid squeeks down the road.

Lastly added Ruima vented drilled bells on both for better bite and cooling.
