Malossi race gears (vespa bravo)

The problem I'm having is my rear pulley is not engaging when pedaling the motor with decomp engaged. I installed malossi race gears via the wordpress toot. Every combination of shims. If you run malossi gears what are the perfect shims to make it work? Or what can be an issue. Front variator is shimmed as well.

This doesn't sound like a shimming issue, more than likely an assembly order issue.

Check the location of the freewheel engagement fork and the large washer on there. If you have nofeel to the freewheel button, it's probably missing something.

The plunger seems to pop good. Could it be a starting clutch issue?

When you pedal is the clutch bell spinning?

Pulley not engaging meaning? Is the belt slipping? Or is the pulley turning but the bell isn't turning? (edited)

Clutch bell spins but belt doesnt move or the pulley does not spin

If that's moving, it has nothing to do with the gears. Solely starter clutch issue.

Turns over now. I guess the person I got the transmission from had reversed the shoes?? I do need to order new shoes though.

Good deal

Thanks y'all. I'm now going to weld a crossbar kind of like the mlm ones.
