This may be more of a repair question but I have a Ciao that seems to run great and has good top end (around 30-35). As far as I know it's entirely stock (at least, I haven't changed anything and the pulleys don't have any numbers on them so I can't really confirm what's on it now)
The problem is that is has hardly any torque. On level ground, from a full stop, it can barely get itself moving on it's own and even moderate hills require a pedal assist. On level ground, once it's moving, it seems to pick up well enough.
Does this just seem like a matter of a ratio issue or is something else at fault? The Ciao was badly abused and the clutch components well rusted when I got it. Cleaned up, it seems to do the job in terms of engaging and such. The clutch seems to be in decent shape (meat wise) but at a full stop I can just barely hear a slight rubbing or slipping and even with good rpm's, I hear a lot of slipping.
Maybe I just need a kit and new clutch pads?
