I'm a noob to the forum, and a total noob when it comes to 2 strokes. I have got a d1e41qmb that I have been working on. I finally got it running but it has no low end power at all! Once it gets up to about 15mph it has all the power it needs. Any ideas? Also does anyone know where I can find a manual for these motors? All I can find is manuals for the cvt trans scoots, this one is chain driven(wet trans)... Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I think the sluggish takeoff might be normal for those. Since they are just a single speed transmission they are bound to be below the powerband taking off. I've never rode one, but it sounds logical to me anyway. If there were a way to get stiffer clutch springs for it so it engages at a higher RPM, that might help.

Isnt it possible that if you added an extra spacer in between your variator halves that he might gain a lil more power from a stop? I tried taking out that washer that sits against the front pulley drive boss, cuz I thought it was a restriction washer. Turns out it was a very important part, cuz without it my scooter was doing the same thing 80ccqmb is describing. Once i put it back in and it went to normal. I eventually added another one to get my belt even lower .
