Mirage Drive question

Postby Stu Ward » Sun Nov 05, 2017 7:11 pm

Hi Chaps
Took my Hobie Revo out for the first time in a while.
My Mirage Drive felt like it was almost slipping a cog on full extension of the left pedal.
Hard to explain, but it kinda slipped 10mm on the return stroke.
Does anyone know if theres a DIY fix, or have i got to take it in for inspection ?

Thanks

Stu

Check that the left cam lock or click and go area on the yak hasn't cracked. That was the cause of mine "slipping". It seemed OK but was "springing"

Could it be a click and go lever fouling on the hull preventing it fully locking on one side so it shifts slightly when you take weight off it and put weight on the other pedal..If so spacers can be added under ther lever to give more clearance.

Hi Stu,

I had a similar problem with my mirage drive. It ended up being alot of the teeth on the sprocket had worn off and therefore the chain was slipping. It was a quick fix, though a little bit fiddly. There are lots of YouTube videos that show how to do it.

Hopefully this helps,

Cheers.
