The Variator is one of the most important factors of automatic scooter tunning. The face angle provides a drive ratio meant for the higher rpm and horsepower. The belt travels higher, scooter goes faster. The rear drive pulley spring is firmer, therefore, not only does it maintain more power under load such as hills but it also prevents belt slippage. Polini variators are of a much higher quality plated aluminum alloy so wear under the higher horsepower conditions are virtually eliminated. Just look at a stock Variator after 2,000km and you will see the surface has ripples that can make the scooter feel as if it is “shifting”. This can also cause excessive belt wear. Polini Variators use a drive face bushing that is a high quality self lubricating bronze with closer tolerances and wear characteristics than on the stock unit. These Variators transmit power to the wheel and do it consistently. Strong, consistent acceleration and torque. Very easy to fit and to modify. Wieghts can be changed out to provide better acceleration or top speed.
