I thought I saw someone using a spool from the last Yok BD. I think the old one fits. Why is everyone so stuck on the blades?

Because everybody has seen the effect of hard driveshaft pins on aluminium outdrives especially with powerful motors.

The drive train is mostly the same as the older BD, though the rear diff is about 200% better. A spool from the BD, Scythe or TC5 will fit without any dramas except for colour. I am using my old JAAD spool with replaceable steel out drives.
Like using steel spools, keep the lube upto the coupling of the alloy diff out drives and you will get a long life out of them. The alloy used is very hard, but if not lubed up it damage quickly.

the center one way is just like the old bd. I bought an old be direct drve pulley and put it in. Works fine!! Actuall it now allows for normal spur gear mounting also now.

Hello,

Is there anyone have the possibility to check if the TC5 Spool fit the BD5, please. And ideally have some run with it to check how it works.

thanks for the feedback,
