I have a GTV 300 (sole owner) around 5k miles. Recently I took it in for maintenance to resolve an issue. They replaced the belts and did some other maintenance, but I still have the issue. Hereís whatís going on. When the engine is cold, no problem. When it warms up after maybe 2 miles, thatís when it starts. When I accelerate from a dead stop, I get a grinding sound with a little vibration. I generally have to let off the gas a little before I can really take off. If you drive a stick shift car, the sound is similar to grinding the gears (best explanation). Once Iím going up to speed, Iím ok. This just happens at take off. However, once I get up to the 50-55 range I start getting a loud squeal. If my scooter was a car, the sound would be similar to a loose fan belt slipping.
The mechanic said he couldnít recreate it and mentioned that itís a CVT transmission (duh) and doesnít have gears (I really do know and understand this). He also said some noise was normal. Iím the only owner of the scooter (bought new) and know this isnít normal for my bike. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
