yeah I guess it's tough to tell with your carb problems. I'm jealous of the comfort of your windscreen.

IT'S FREEZING!!!!!

The Herc rides smoothly... but I think It does not change gears...
When stationary it revs perfectly but while riding it goes 50kmh max and is a bit slow on accelertion...
I think I know what the problem is....

Your scooter doesn't really 'change' gears, so much as it gradually changes the gear ratio. Why do you think it's not upshifting normally? The front variator is basically a sealed unit. The belt affects things a bit but not that radically. You're drivetrain is obviously shifting somewhat or you'd hit the redline way before 50km/hr. If it's slow on acceleration, it would be because it's shifting faster than normal, so you wind up in a tall gear which drops the revs and makes it sluggish.

exactly...
As I said... when its stationary (on the stand) and the back wheel is off the ground it revs as hell... but when riding it's sluggish.... there is a spring at the clutch assy I've been told that is a bit worn out... might that be the cause of all this?

Yeah a worn out compression spring could cause this. That would cause your acceleration to be sluggish but it shouldn't change the top speed because it should still wind up at the same max gear ratio.

The loss in top speed is weird. The only way this could happen with a worn out spring is if the spring is SO worn out that your scooter upshifts all the way and that leaves the scooter completely out of power so it can't accelerate through the mid-range. Even still, if you could get your scooter up to speed (i.e. by riding down a hill) then it should be able to hold that top speed. Does this make sense? Definately try replacing the spring but you might also have another problem.

You might want to replace the entire clutch instead of just the spring because the clutch is tough to disassemble. There is a nut that holds it together on the back and you need a huge wrench and some way of holding the clutch still while you remove this nut, in order to get it apart. I tried briefly but gave up on it.
