    Default
    Hey people
    I plan to use a chain drive, for single/ double step reductiopn, after my CVT...
    I've figured out everything, except how do i put my vehicle into neutral...
    I mean, if i had a gearbox, i had a clutch, but what do i do now ??
    Any suggestions ?

    Most CVT vehicles stop when you let off the gas.

    Like Livewire said, the CVT should disengage much like a torque converter on an automatic at low rpm. How it's adjusted or designed will determine how soon it starts to engage as rpms increase. I think it's a good idea to have a good parking brake on any buggy as a precaution. It's probably also advisable to never let the engine run when you leave the driver's seat.

    Really depends on designing it right. What chain size? What RPM? How heavy is your ride? What reduction between the sprockets. Since you are only running 12 hp you can't go too far wrong.

    Right...
    Also, is there any god damn way you can incorporate reverse into chain drives ?
    I mean, any standards exist or it gotta be customised ?

    The engine is about 8kw...but obviously, it doesn't go that high, because the low rpm's involved....

    An old snowmobile reverse box or Polaris ATV reverse box would work.
