I was on my way home and noticeed occasionaly it was revving higher than normal. then it just slowed down to a stop and wouldnt start. i pushed it off the road and messed aboutt. The kick start was solid wouldnt move and wouldnt move and the elec start would spin the engine but wouldnt run. after a while i got it going with full throttle. eventually she cured herself but with this awfull noise coming from the belt cover. it got me home but with this awfull noise and the revs being higher then normal. My bloody tools are at my parents so i cant get the cover off to investigate i really hope its just the belt.
K, had to buy an 8mm spanner how annoying! Took the belt cover off, to find small bits of oil and metal shavings, started it and the noise is coming from the variator... I'll have to get that off and investigate further. Just realised i've only had the ped since august!!
