Hey All I've had a grande for about 5 yrs with no problems, late last year I couldn't start it like I normally do....stand on the left and push the left peddle down like a motorcycle kickstarter. It just slipped!! I replaced the belt (not a Vespa belt but a almost excact match from a mower shop) and removed the rear clutch hub. the two small starter weights were glazed and didn't move freely. I cleaned them and ALSO TOUCHED UP THE BIG DRIVE WEIGHTS as they were glazed also. reassembled everything and the machine started like it always did. BUT I have a new problem. The bike has very little power up until 7 mph, It feels like the clutch is slipping too much until I get some speed then its OK. When started on the center stand, it revs right up, but when I sit on it and try and take off...very little power until 7 mph. I think the clutch is slipping too much?????
Any advice....Thanks....this machine is way to nice not to be riding it.
PS total mileage is 2000
