This is a manual transmission and the speed is controlled by the variable pulley between the front belt and the rear belt. Are belts tight, and does the variable pulley move back and forth with the speed lever, and dos it move up and down to change the shape of the pulley. Y'm thinking the variable pulley is stuck. See link below.
