On my Mf 12g my belt screaches on every variable drive gear 1 2 3 4 or 5. I have two ideas on why it could be doing it. One my belt is slipping and i need a belt or my variable speed needs adjustment. Does anybody have any ideas.

           Thanks,

Does it screech all the time or only when you let the clutch out.

Mine always screech's when you let the clutch out, every gear and ever Vari-Drive position.

 

If it slips once the clutch is out check the rear tensioner, they bind when worn too much.

The front belt needs to be wide enough to run on the sides of the belt around the crank pulley, when they get too narrow they run on the bottom and start slipping.

Finally go through the Vari-Drive adjustment procedure as shown in the manual.

 

Hope this helps.
