Belt and Rollers change.

Post by bunny999 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 6:32 am

Hello All.
2012 SH125i.
Could some one confirm that the belt should last about 12000 miles or may be a bit more, please?
Presumably the rollers should be changed at the same time.
Many thanks.

Recommended 15,000 miles on the SH150.
IMO best to have the rollers 'on-hand' and replace at your discretion based upon how they look.
Twice, though most looked decent, I replaced them all.....

My SH 2011 was not running smooth anymore (uncontrolable on/off at 50 kmh) so i thought maybe its time to change belt and rollers because after 36000 km that could solve the problem i thought. Well... the rollers and especially the belt were still as new and i think i could have made another 20k with them (at least in the way i ride the scooter:smooth, never full trottle accelerations and no high speed) (for the adrenaline i have my sportbike ;) . ).
I had all the pieces so i changed the belt and rollers and maybe mayybe the acceleration is a bit smoother now.
The irregular running at 50 kmh remained and had another cause. Had to bring the sh for the first time to Honda and they found out the fuelpump caused the problem: they kept the bike for 4 (four) weeks and made me pay nearly 800 euro :shock: well at least i have my bike back now and it runs like it used to do 8-)


P.s. first i did not stretch the front vario enough and it loosened during a test ride :shock: :shock: :shock:
Happily no damage but to anyone who wants to do the (easy) job: dont forget to tighten very tight the vario !!! ;)
