  • Ball Accelerator

    How complicated is it to uninstall and reinstall a ball accelerator on a GSX? Also as well as changing the belt on it? Does the belt ever snap in half or become undone off the wheels? Lastly is there any tutorial video on how to do so?

    its fairly easy to pull out ball accelerator have to undo rear bolts both ball rings and wedges remove bolts holding the kickback and remove the bolts holding accelerator to the ball track and then you should be able to pull the accelerator out don't forget to unplug ball door solenoids , to remove accelerator belt undo the adjusting bolt which in turn will loosen the spring remove the belt change the front hub if needed or what ever your going to do put new belt on and adjust the tension back up to 194 mm . i have never had a belt snap in half before ive only replaced 1 belt in 10 years but have pulled all my accelerators out to replace the tubes that go over the rails
    im never wrong just askme

        Tubes that go over the rails is my least favorite job.

          yeah, tubes are more irritating that doing A2 lift rods in my opinion.
