I will be taking a GT200 in for the 3000 mile service. This will probably be the last scheduled service before the 1 year warrantee expires so I have some questions about repairing possible known "issues". Namely the infamous and occasional CVT belt "shudder" problem. I have been following the threads on this forum and the infamous scooterbbs.com forum ;^)
I have only experienced the CVT belt "shudder" problem on warm/humid mornings and after about 10 minutes of operation the problem goes away. Now that the mornings in Austin Texas are cooler/dryer the problem is not present. I know this experience is contrary to what others have experienced (problem frequently associated with heat?)
What is the latest on the CVT belt "shudder" issue? Any official word from Piaggio? Any technical service bulletins?? I have a feeling that the CVT belt "shudder" problem will resurrect itself after the 1 year warrantee expires next summer...
And how much should I fight with the dealer to correct the reoccurring problem? (which is not occurring at the moment.) And is this a legitiamte problem?? If so, I anticipate the dealer being quite reluctant to repair a problem that he/she can not detect unless there is a Piaggio technical service bulletin on the particular issue.
Also, like theOZ I have noticed that the turn signal hates "left" and loves right. Any official word from Piaggio on the flimsy turn signal issue?
Any info and/or advice will be GREATLY appreciated!
