Re: Engine hesitates with initial throttle roll-on.

I think Bruce is asking the same kind of question as me.

Is the "engine" itself hesitating or is the scooter hesitating to move forward after roll on?

Here's some of the reasoning for the question.

I've had many conventional motocycles from 90 to 1000, all with manual transmissions. I clearly remember my first CVT experience with the Reflex. It felt odd that "it took so long" for the drivetrain to respond to throttle up. I had to learn that it was completely normal and just plain different from the nearly instantaneous feel I get from clutch and gears.

Slowly roll up the throttle. You should "feel" the AVT start to engage around 22-2400 RPM or so. The "hesitation" between idle, about 1400 RPM, and full CVT engagement is totally normal.

I haven't had a chance to ride it much because of the weather but I have experienced a definite hesitation when I roll-on the gas leaving a stop. Then the engine "catches" and goes very nicely. Anyone had the problem? Thanks. Dennis

Water Pump repair coming up

Well, folks, it looks like I'm going to have to do my water pump soon. I've got a bit of seepage under the bike after a ride (not much), but I should attend to it. I have searched the archives as much as this screwed up yahoo search will allow, but I was not able to come up with (lazy me) a suggested list of replacements parts to have on hand. I figure I might as well but them all (ugh) and be ready! If there IS such a list, feel free to steer me towards it.

Hey - I've got the ladies Joe Rocket Ballistic XL jacket to go with this one! Pics to anyone who wants them. I'm asking $40 & shipping and it's been worn for about an hour. It never fit right, I'm too short-waisted.
