The BGM Supertorque converter optimizes the acceleration of the vehicle.
It immediately keeps the engine at the highest torque speed, so that the full tractive force is always applied to the rear wheel. The BGM Supertorque completely replaces the converter used ex works and offers two different settings for individual tuning to your own engine. The matching angles of the pulley halves also result in a perfect everyday suitability that protects the V-belt.
FUNCTION ORIGINAL CONVERTER
The original converter is optimized for maximum vehicle control. In addition it reduces the maximum possible acceleration, even if full throttle is given, up to approx. 30km/h by a conservatively designed shifting behavior of the rear converter. This offers beginners increased safety so that they can stabilize the vehicle when driving slowly (straight handlebars, correct seat position, etc.). For ambitious drivers and tuners, this means that any changes to the drive (variomatic, counterpressure spring) and/or the performance-determining engine components themselves (cylinder, camshaft, head, etc.) cannot fully take effect unless the converter is also changed.
BGM SUPERTORQUE CONVERTER FUNCTION
The BGM Supertorque converter climbs directly to the highest torque speed and holds it uncompromisingly to deliver full engine power directly to the rear wheel. This allows the scooter to accelerate much better from a standstill and, with performance-optimized engines, to lift the front wheel. Of course you can start with the Supertorque converter as normal if you want. A big advantage of the BGM Supertorque converter is the linear shifting behaviour. This facilitates the tuning of the drive, especially on performance-enhanced engines, clearly.
In order to adapt the converter perfectly to the engine and your own requirements, it offers two differently shaped milled grooves for the so-called sliding blocks. The grooves have different steep flank angles. As a general rule, the flatter the angle of the grooves, the faster the converter halves can close and the faster the scooter can accelerate. Please note that the motor should have a sufficiently high basic power for the strong adjustment. Series engines should use the steeper and therefore more tame flank angle.
Sufficient time should be allowed for testing and tuning. The combination possibilities in the tuning of variomatic and converter to each other are enormously large. A harmonic tuning of weights, back pressure spring and flank angle of the converter results in a significantly improved acceleration behaviour. Ideal for use in combination with the BGM PRO Variomatik.
TIP: The subjective feeling of the acceleration can be deceiving quite fast (among other things due to the speed heard). Ideal for testing is always the same distance and an accelerometer (e.g. SIGMA MC1812, see accessories).
