Here is what I found with my 50V; Same symptoms, it happened all of a sudden after running awsome for a few hundred miles, I checked and cleaned out the fuel system with no positive results also, so I took the bike to work and we have the cool smoke machine that we use to find leaks in evaporative recovery systems in cars, trucks, etc. I stuck the smoke maker into the moby exhaust and found what may be the problem, a leaking crankshaft seal behind the variator. I ordered a couple from Handy Bikes and when they arrive I'll see if that fixes it.
