Its nice that he likes it. Though he doesnt really get that its a CVT so it doesn't shift !!!!! Which is why its so smooth.

Good find though

Well, not to put too fine a point on it, the CVT does "shift", though I think Jay doesn't fully understand what that means with this CVT. In sport gear, there are 7 different ratios that are selected by the "paddles" or the foot shifter. The ratios are set by the computer driving the stepper motor (referred to as the "variator motor" in the service manual) to specificly position the drive pulley. With the drive pulley fixed, the driven pulley is also fixed by the belt to create a specific ratio of drive/driven - got too slow, you lug the engine...too fast, you bounce the engine off the rev limiter - just like any other bike. Pretty cool, huh?
