After reading only positive reviews of the Hoca torque spring base which has BBs in it which prevents the spring from binding I bought one from Greg . Well it has no instructions on the box or any paperwork at all . I am thinking I should use lithium grease on the BBS instead installing dry but I can not find any info on how to or tips on this install . Here is the part eshop.mainelyscooters.com/by-brand/hoca/169-281
I would truly be great full to here from anyone who has installed this part preferably on a 2T but I think it should be the same for both . I have not had any CVT problems and I go uphill faster than many do on flat roads . I am one of those who like go the extra mile and always do service work to prevent less repairs later on as I want to enjoy my 2T for years like I did my Honda Spree .
So please any advice ( from those who have installed it ) or link to info or video would be super duper . Thanks in advance
I would say dry and reason being is that the BB's are not sealed as you can see there is a space between the Spring Rider and the BBs so all the belt material powder will get in there really fast. That is a very cheap setup I must say, I guess anything to sell something that will not do much at all. Sam
Longbo 150cc Prodigy and the Voyager. Buy them as cheap as you can, find the cheapest parts . Ride em hard . They will break anyway .
I have the Naraku version of the same thing. I used some gun grease on it which is better than nothing. However, I somewhat buffed the excess grease off since it's supposed to bind to the metal. Any loose/excess grease will fling off since it's not sealed.
Benefits of is is free movement of the spring which twists when compressing/decompressing. Also, it increases the spring tension since it preloads the spring even more.

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
