Okay, great. I'm glad - as comparing the two, the Micro L2 is much more grippier..they both look the exact when I took photos, it's deceiving in that you have to actually touch them to feel the difference.
Sammy, you might wanna try an L2 brother. That may help slippage...?
Thanks!

If you go to the griptec site, they also have a L3 for certain jackshaft maggy pulleys, but not all of them. I was going to e-mail them about the differences,
but just decided the L2 version would be ok. I googled the L2 version and i am convinced it has another level of abrasiveness over the normal griptec. As
for the L3, i'm not sure?

If ya'll ever go to San Francisco and talk about your different trannies and how tight they are, how they shift, slip, etc., you'll be right at home... Just be ready for some advances from likely unwanted people...

Hell, I’ll take an L5! Actually, if this damn belt slips on me again, I’m going to try some LC7 on it and see how that works...

Ha, blame me if you must, but I wasn’t the one that said that I prefer getting my kicks pulling on a stick!

Good God. I find this world a scary place these days: How in world are you supposed to figure out who is what? You can’t go by appearances, and if you ask them, you’ll get sued, and you can’t do the Crocodile Dundee/Trump crotch check thing anymore, or you’ll get locked up, so what’s a man supposed to do to find a female without getting “shafted”??

I'm about 30 miles from San Francisco, but it might as well be 30 light years...I can't even watch the news anymore...what the new "normal" is, LOL
I ordered me an L3 Micro! I have a 3.4 in L2, now I'll have a 3.3" / 82mm in an L3...

So I received an L3 Micro Finish 3.30" Griptec today.
Comparing the L3 to the L2, I like the L2 much better (by feel). Just feels coarser by hand.
Check out the newer pulley design. I swear they look like different ID's, but they are both marked 3.30". I'll put my trusty Harbor Freight micrometer on them to measure...

Sammy, have you ran an L2 or L3 Micro finish Griptec? Compared to a stock Maggie pulley, they sure feel like they'll hook better...and feel better than the Griptec's made for SCOL, IMHO.

Interesting. I may just get one of those if the new RPM belt and tensioner doesn’t hold. I tested the new belt and tensioner this weekend, btw, although unfortunately, I didn’t data log to see what the boost looked like. It runs like a scalded cat though and the belt didn’t come off, so that’s good. I’ll try to do a log this week, before I do the Kooks 2” Headers. I want to see how much that drops the boost anyways.

My new 3.4 griptech is a flat top not bulged our. Is that the new style? And I’m not seeing slip. But am only doing 7.5psi

Rodney & Sammy will know for sure, but I think it is?
I've hadn't seen one until just recently.

That’s the first time I’m seeing this new ‘flat-nosed’ GripTech pulley. Must be a new style. The two I have are tapered.
