Wow someone from New Zealand! Yamaha really did sell this scooter all over the world Cool Welcome to the site Very Happy

If you need some help, here is a guide I wrote up for replacing the belt & rollers etc.
http://cv80.phpbbweb.com/viewtopic.php?t=107

Right now I'm using 4g rollers in my Beluga and they are working excellent. It's a huge improvement over the really heavy stock weights. The stock weights are about 11-12g and I've tried 8g, 6g, 5g and now 4g. The 4g's are finally light enough to get it accelerating up in the powerband.

Yeah,I checkd out that posting ,cheers for that.
I used an impacked driver to loosen the screws,it was worth the $30 i paid for it,you just wak it with a hammer,and twist at the same time,they come loose and can be romoved without threading them.
Reassembling the variater's going to be a mission,I may as well be repairing a Swiss watch!... when I took the cover off all those disks and springs fell apart,so...I'll refer to those photos and see how i go.

My name is Danny, codename Cowboy Dan. I bought a '83 riva and it is crap. just beat to hell.... but I love it. Im so into my scooter that I have no money for food, just parts. which are terribly hard to find.

I have tried various other forums but everyone has these newfangled Japanese scoots. I have learned more about my scoot in ten minutes here than i have in weeks of surfing the net trying to find info and parts.

also I have a new hero. DandyDan. I had previousley seen the video on youtube, I want my scoot to be like your scoot...... more chrome though.

LOTS OF CHROME!!!!

A CHROMSPLOSION!

Embarassed

I'm glad you're a big fan. How are you going to afford chrome on your budget? I suggest you buy food before chrome.

Hello all ,

Here is a new member , from Swizerland.

I am a CV 80 enthousiast , like everybody on this forum ,and I would like to share my happyness owning this beautyfull scooter.

Well , there is not much to say about it , because it is trouble free since I bought it , 8 months ago. Very Happy

I made a verry good deal , I had it for a verry little money , and all what I needed to replace was the fuel petcock , brake shoes , both brake levers , and coil ignition. I also made a full service (myself) right after acquisition(lubricate all parts,cleaning,new spark plug etc). Now I use it daily , exept when raining , not because I am a chicken ( well , I know I am Embarassed ) but because I try to keep it rust free.

The top speed is not amazing ,60 KM /H , but I will not work to improve that , because I really love the fact that scoot is good on gas , and I want to keep it this way. I also have a motorcycle if I need of speed .

So enough talking , place for the pictures now , here it is :
