don't want the noise either.

Just want a smooth, relaxed ride, and the CVT (which is a huge compromise
to begin with re: delivering power to the ground) that's setup as good as
I would agree with you on that , except for the fact that I am not taking off full throttle all the time .
On the Big Ruckus the jcosta smooths out the flat spots , on the Tmax it just plain makes it even
faster on take off than it already is . If you are looking for an excuse not to buy one , you don't need
one . Stick with your same variator and play with the weights . I did that and like I said found it to be a waste of time and money . I don't care about the money spent on the jcosta or the fuel , I care about performance first .
