Hello,

A few posts back I asked a question on how to mount the M-Mod belt tensioner on the MRX4R.

I figured out a way to mount it and took some pictures to let you see. I used some shims to mount it so it touches the belt in the centre of the hammer but I am worried about the upper part of the belt getting warm because it rubbs slightly against the belt tensioner.

Is this the way it should be mounted or does anybody else have another idea ?

Appreciate any help

That looks bad for your belts.

I believe you need to remove the carbon fibre tensioner so the M-Mod tensioner can be place deeper ( very close to fuel tank ).

If the belt tensioner still touch the belt, send it back to the shop and ask for refund. It's a junk.

Shouldn't tensioners apply inward pressure? Seems like a belt stripper.

it looks like you're suppose to remove the stock belt tensioner. That way, you will have room for the tensioner roller to do it's job.

I never seen one used before but I would think you remove the stock one, then still use the ball bearings with the kit. Bolt the bearings to the Mmod in the slot. The bearings should ride on top of the belt like normal.The top and bottom screw go in the normal holes and the 3rd screw in the middle hole goes in when the set screw would go for the handle. You just have to flip the mmod around. Not 100% sure but that is what I would try.

M Mod receiver box also weight like a ballast.

I'm not sure if M Mod is a high performance product or otherwise.

If you shim it out further and install it in where the bearings use to be, will the belt have clearance so the hammer can apply downward pressure? dunno just trying to help.

Unhappy

Hello,

I tried a few things and here are the results.

First attempt: remove the stock tensionere plate and mount it like that without spacers
-> the belt tensioner doesn't even come near the belt and if you use spacers you get exactly what I already had





Second attempt: mount the belt tensioner on the original belt tensioner plate or use the ball bearings
->doensn't fit due to the way the back end of the tensioner is constructed (you can never line up the two holes with the original tensioner plate) and the bearings are too big







So for the moment the original way without the original backplate but with more shims seems to be the only way I can make it work.


I think it is a very expensive part and you don't get any instructions with it.
Even if it is supposed to be mounted like I figured out, you don't even get the necessary hardware (shims) to mount it correctly.

So I am not to happy with this part at the moment.

The receiver box at least IMHO is junk, had one on my hands and left another time on the shop (could be handy on wet climates were you have lots of water... but not here and not me. If the track is wet, the car remains on the starter box), got the battery holder, just because it weights in the place you can would like an extra of weight, on the lower side.

Love the battery box, but the receiver box, simply I don't like it... now I've seen the belt tensioner and... like the stock one simple, easy and doesn't add more fuss to that zone and one thing less to crush the pipe if someone goes berserk to my car.

Nitro junkie,
Put the bearing in which slot ? The only hole available is where the screw is to secure the roll bar.
You can not pull the upper belt under the tensioner because it creates way to much tension that way. The belt tensioner hammer is about level with the under part of the belt

This is the correct one :



However, don't be surprise if the belt now touch the manifold

If it does, please throw a brick to M Mod for being stupid.
