So heres my question ..

I have a 2007 650h1 and this problem seems to be getting alot worse everytime...

I press the throttle about 1/4 way and the bike starts to rev up but wont move at all...then eventualy
around 1/2 throllte it kicks in and jerks forward, once it gets going its fine. In a mud puddle it will jerk really
bad and wont spin the tires like it has no power at all.

The belt was changed and is not sliping, also this dosent seem to happen when i go reverse seems to work fine

Any ideas on what I could take apart or order?

did you put non-wet clutch approved oil in it?

sounds like your clutch (not the pulleys) inside the motor is slipping and not engaging.
