Lmk guys & Thanks in advance!
CVT is 8MMX1.25. Standing on my head and all different positions took me a while to best guesstamate the thread pitch with the gauge I have. I don't have a metric tap and die set and it would be easy to figure out with that. I'm still experimenting on options and here is the boot with a Epman boot adapter. To remove the cover assembly use a non metallic edge and pry up on the corner that is open to any trim. Then remove the electrical connector and it comes off. So far unable to find a black Epman/Sickspeed shift boot adapter in 8X1.25 so I'll have to go with 12x1.25 to 8x1.25 Threaded Insert Adapters.
