Hi all, I have many problems and you may be able to point me in the right direction with a few things to try. I have a gt 125 which does 50 mph max . my problem is when I take it to nearly top throttle then release the throttle a little it speeds up more. anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong Crying or Very sad emoticon

Does it feel like the throttle cable is sticking?

When were the rollers last replaced? Flats on the rollers can cause a huge dent in top speed, as they can't push the gearing high enough.

I've been having the same thing happening to my LX for a while now. Really never bothered me but would be good to know what is causing it.

I possibly should not have a bike know nothing about the mechanics of them but love riding it. Don't know about when rollers were last changed but am hoping to have a new 'kit' installed. is this the same thing?

There are plenty of clues in the Wiki about belts and rollers, and the CVT in general.

e.g.:
GTS Belt and Variator Service
GT200 CVT belt and rollers replacement.
