What exactly happens when you loose power? Does the engine rev up and you not accelerate? Or does it just not want to go? Some history on the bike would be helpful as well, last service, when did this all start?

Expert:  Christopher replied 6 years ago.
Jump starting your scooter with a car is not recommended, damage can occur due to the difference in battery sizes. Charging it is what i recommend. From what you are describing you have a damaged belt. It will need to be inspected. Also, are you sure you put the oil in the trans and not the belt compartment?
