I just bought a used 2010 yamaha vino 125 i have a whineing noise when i am giving it throttle is it normal?

It comes from the left side of the engine and it only happens when you are riding it down the street

Please let me know if it is something to worry about or if it is normal.

most likely the whining of the variator spinning

bad thing is on your vino if you take the side cover off you need to replace your oil window gasket
so to do any maintenance make sure to keep a few on hand

I checked my oil level noticed it is kind of low it is in between low and full could that cause the whinning sound?

It seems to go away the more I ride it the noise used to happen every time i was riding down the street and now it does not do it as much.

I am going to change the oil and see if that makes it go away if not then i will look at the variator.

if you have never ridden a cvt scooter they have a weird whine sounds like a whirling
thats the cvt noise

but do whatever you need to do
with not being able to hear it, its kinda hard to know

I changed the engine oil in it the noise is gone and the oil that was in it was like water.

I had a Honda metropolitan scooter with the cvt I could hear alittle bit of the cvt while riding but not that much.

Thanks for your help if you never told me about the variator I would have never found the oil window I was looking for a dip stick.

ok
a little more info on your scooter past probably would of helped like any maintenance you had done on it
I thought you never had one as you have no posts here and didnt know that the cvt makes noises

but that being said did you check over everything
hoses, tires, belt, rollers, valve clearance, gear oil, brake pads

since the oil was so bad I wonder how much more was neglected

when i got the scooter a few days ago it only had 800 miles on it and I always change the gear oil when i get a scooter when i bought my metropolitan the dealer forgot to put gear oil in it so now i always make sure i have it.

I got it from a gentle man that had a stroke and could not ride it any more so the bike is in really nice shape just that it has sat alot in it's life.

ok well 4 years the rubber parts can be going bad especially low mileage

so look for little cracks in the tire and belt, and any hard crispy hoses

if you dont want a mysterious air leak when far away from home causing the bike not to run
and if you havent already get a new battery

I looked at the tires that is one of the first things I look at you don't want one of the tires breaking while riding as for the hoese I will look at them.

Also I am looking for 1500 rpm clutch springs do you know where I can buy them cheap?

Thanks agien for your help this is the first time i have bought a used scooter my honda metropolitan i bought brand new but i could not turn down the price $1050 with only 800 miles on it.

well any zuma 125 clutch parts will fit along with the variator parts
its the same parts on both bikes
at least the blown vino engine I have here has the same exact tranny parts

but why 1500 clutch springs?
or do you mean the contra spring which I would recommend a 1000

drow sports sells alot of zuma tranny 125 parts

your right I ment 1000 rpm springs also will that increase my top end speed I am happy with the take off speed of the bike but I want to increase the top end?

If I add lighter roller weights to the stock variator I know it will give me faster take off but it will take away from my top end but if I put heavier roller weights in the variater with the lighter weights will that help with my top end speed?

What gram weights would you recemond for mostly riding in the city stop and go traffic and riding in the country on weekends mostly high speeds .

stiffer contra spring (not clutch springs) there is a difference
will have more of a chance of loosing top speed
the 1000 spring probably wont loose any or enough to matter
any stiffer then you can loose speed

the contra keeps it in lower gear slightly longer
so you get better acceleration and better speeds up hills

Im guessing the stock weights are 12 its been a while since I messed with weights in the zuma
im also guessing the vino has the same weights

so if it does use 12 try some 10's

if that ends up being too light use half of the 10's and half of the 12's that will make it like 11

so you can get 2 uses if you pick the right weight ranges



now if you want better performance you can get rid of stock air box, maybe better exhaust and rejet the carb

you can also big bore and I believe there is an aftermarket camshaft too along with rejetting too

if you only did 1 thing big bore would show the most results

I ordered a 1000 rpm contra spring and 1000 rpm clutch springs to go with it I also ordered 10 gram roller weights for the zuma 125.

I might look into putting a performance air filter on it and up jet the carb later on but I like to have my bike look and sound stock but have alittle more power then stock that way there the cops leave me alone.

Thanks again for the advice

well if you got stiffer clutch springs
and I have no idea how they rate the stock ones
it will take more rpm to move

so if you like to creep in parking lots, or just super slow to maneuver in tight areas stiffer clutch wont be real nice

but its all easy enough to try out and see what it all does

I put the 1000rpm contra spring in last night and new rollers I think I found out were the wining noise was coming from the shaft that goes through the variator was hard to move the grease that the factory used was very thick so I cleaned it off and added freash grease.

I also found out where my high speed wobble was coming from the axle for the front wheel was loose I had to tighten it up. I still get a wobble every once and a while don't know why I can ride for weeks no problem and then one day I go out for a ride and I have a wobble.
