Uh oh- i got a windscreen that is tall for mine thinking “me being tall, that’s the right thing to do.” No. Cancel that windscreen if it is tall, it will direct viperish ripples of air directly at your face/helmet. You are going to scrunch your head down and realize if you were 5’6″ your windsheild would work perfectly. Get a short(er) alternate screen to reduce chest blast instead(?). It is a hell of a good scooter, a true yamaha product. I will say however that an extender clip on top of your tall windscreen will knock out the problem i describe. Google Maxam to look at the astonishing things the Japanese kids do with these.
The v-belt- mine sat in a desert climate for ten years before getting regular use. It gave up the ghost at fifteen thousand miles, a little too right-on-schedule. The v-belts on these are not uncommon but a bit too exotically catagorized for my taste. I ended up with one that had yamaha written on the package.
