Snap & Thump

Jumped on the Elite 80 yesterday to make a quick dinner run to Subway.  I pulled away from the stoplight just up the road from the house when I heard a snap followed by a few thumps and then the engine just revved up with no power making it to the rear wheel.  I’ve put about 1300 miles on the Elite since purchase and it has just over 6000 miles.  I guess that’s all that drive belt had in it.  I’ve ordered a new Kevlar belt and while I was spending money I went and ordered a new air filter since it was a bit on the dirty side when I checked last.  This will be the first time changing out the drive belt on a scooter so it will be a learning experience.
