So about .75 hp loss? Would that make a difference. I am fairly light so maybe that would make up for it... I will look at the sleeves tomorrow. I have seen the torqaverters for about $60 but the reviews say there is a problem with the rear shaft having a lot of play and no way to shim. Is there a particular series or model i should look for? They all seem to have different specs and engagements and such. So many options!!!There are sleeves made to use the 3/4" cvts with a 5/8" shaft. A properly aligned cvt with a new belt might lose 10% power at the most, and roughly 5% if perfectly aligned and tensioned. A properly aligned chain that isn't worn is around a 5% loss. So with a cvt and secondary chain to the back you are looking at a 10%-30% loss depending on tension, alignment and wear.
