Rolling Eyes

My wifes CV80 sat over the winter last year because i wanted to replace a leaky fuel line. Drained the tank and all before storage of course.
This season, i cleaned it out, blew out the carb, and put everythign back together. On the work stand, she purrs! Hurahh!!
So i drop her off the stand, and go to zip around the parking lot, and all i get is a swarm of bee's that doesn't move.
She revs fine, idles really well, but it almost feels like the clutch or belt is slipping?
Took the drive cover off and the belt looks good (though i hadn't inspected it before) and everything seems ok...
What should i be looking for, what am i missing?

Thanks

The variator rollers are one of the internal components of your clutch assembly. The disassembled components in the link when installing rollers are all part of your clutch assembly.
