I'm having a slight issue with the C1 200 with 'engine over-run' when I shut off the throttle, especially when slowing down from high speed (60 mph). The revs seem to stay high and the revs do not slow according to my speed - it just doesn't feel right. I suspect the variator needs a clean and whilst I have it off I may put in some new rollers. Can anyone tell me the weight of the 'standard' rollers for the 200 - I just can't seem to find it? I know people change weights to improve acceleration etc, but I just want the bog standard normal weights. I know BMW will be able to tell me the info but I will probably buy some generic weights.
As ever, any info is much appreciated.
Thanks Gerard - I hadn't spotted the weights - appreciated. Hope all well with you.
@ rockstedy - I've been reading about the Malossi variator and there are good reports on the forum about the performance.
However, I think I fixed the problem ....... I took the variator apart and gave it a good clean and polish, there were no flat spots on the rollers so I just cleaned all the parts and put them back. Took it for a fast run and the revving on the over-run is now normal. When I shut off the throttle the revs slow down accordingly. Thanks also go to Paul who this morning gave me a FaceTime run through of what to do, complete with 'here is one I prepared earlier'!
