I have. Changing the variator rollers and gliders sorted the problem for me.

Could be your clutch plate needs replacing. Or it could simply be that the inside of the clutch bell needs to be roughed up with a bit of sand paper (they can glass up if you do a lot of low-speed driving... especially in hilly areas.

Scooter only has 600 miles on it. I donít think it would need a clutch. Been doing it since new. Letís see what they say when I take it in for itís first service. If no harm, Iíll can live with it. Luv the bike.

What is this 'slow acceleration' of which you speak?
