The book says max bed load is 600 lbs. I estimate that I have a max of 280 lbs. in the bed during use. I am now suspecting my Hot Rod Sheave kit is the problem. I am not getting any replies from the vendor (JPS) so I will try this combination once more before I revert back to the stock sheaves. Secondary sheaves still on backorder from Yamaha Parts distributor.How much weight are you talking about? Does it exceed the maximum weight limit for cargo? If it does then yes that could be part of the problem
It's not so much what's in the bed it is total weight all up, including riders all the extras etc, which is 1000lb. But if you've only got 280 in the bed then you should be well under the 1000lb. Go to stock this time, don't risk it again!! Is there someone you know who can help you with the install to make sure that you've done it right, as in what Kurtw said?The book says max bed load is 600 lbs.
I have a pcv and 14g weights that I would give you a good deal on if your interested.Well, since I have already bought the JBS Sheave AGAIN, I will try it one more time. I have the required manuals to put it together in a concise manner, and will follow all torque requirements to the tee. I just got word that my 60 day backorder of my secondary sheaves is on the way, finally. Wish me luck, but I am not totally convinced myself that this time it will work out.
