    The belt size for my Ice Bear Vision PMZ150-17 is 835-20
    As was suggested I pulled the cover to get the correct number.
    With 3k km on the belt on the scooter it looks just fine.

    I remember years ago hearing ads about aramid fiber in radial car tires. It's got to be a stong fiber. I don't know if it's the same thing as kevlar, though.
    As far as belt size, the easiest thing to do is remove the cover now while your belt is in good condition and get the numbers off of it.

    My chinese scoot is a 50 and the original belt lasted about 4000k. It broke. I got another and it lasted about 500k and broke. I found out there was some sort of problem with the sheaves on the clutch and replaced the clutch assembly. Replacement has been on there for about 3500k and it still looks pretty much new. I am thinking the clutch problem killed my original belt.
    Since belts are super cheap for the 50's, I have a replacement sitting here for when I need it. I also have a spare CDI or two. They are known to die at inopportune moments. Don't waste your money on a performance or racing CDI. It does nothing but give you full spark advance at low speeds. Makes pre-ignition much more of a concern and usually makes it harder to start. You might want to get a spare spark plug cap. I have never had an issue with mine. My son had 3 fall apart in a couple months until he hit a good one.

    Also negates the objective of high-octane gas which RETARDS combustion closer to piston top-dead-center.

    Have no intention of replacing the CDI. Had many Chinese bikes over the last 15 years and never had a CDI problem or spark plug cap problems.

    I haven't either but I have seen many people who have. I think a lot has to do with the manufacturer. The guy at the scooter shop up the road from me tells me most problems are CDI, stator, or carb when it won't run. Of course, what he sees mostly is the cheapest thing you can buy type scooters that the drunks are riding around.

    It's a CSC SG250.. had it for a little over a year. I like it.. had no issues but at the Beat the Heat scooter rally I really became a believer in the simplicity of the scooter / CVT transmission.

    I was suppose to be there in MV but got hung up here at our place close to Robbinsville,NC. Maybe next year. I too like the simplicity of the CVT scooter.

    I just pulled the cover on the air filter to check/clean the element. It looked perfectly clean which surprises me since I ride about a mile or two of gravel whenever I leave the cabin here in the mountains of WNC.

    I am new to the GY6 so can't advise on belts,etc.
    I plan to not monkey with that stuff, famous last words.
    Like your location in the Baja.

    Long ride from SWFl to Baja. Maybe after Covid-19 is over???
    Yucatan Express Ferry from Tampa to Yucatan? Baja Ferry?
    Back in 1997 I rode a motorcycle from Fort Myers FL to Texas then with Pancho Villa Motor Tours on the border of Texas to Panama. Sold the bike in the no man's land between Panama and Costa Rica and rode a bus back to Panama and flew home.
