In recently let the dealer install a new vario malossi with 10.5 gr weights. Only the inner vario itself the weights and the spring where replaced. The outer vario and belt are still original.

The difference in speed is that i now reach 125 kph. The thing that changed is that is feel a pulsing vibration betweem 60 and 70 kph in the steering wheel. I assume its the belt that vibrates. Also the sound is much rawer then before. anyone else taht got this expierience. Some say on the dutch forum the weights are to low?

Another thing i noticed after a check if they changed the airfilter is that there was a bit oil behind the air filter is this normal?

Its a PCX 125 LED from 2016 with 5000 km.

That vario makes the engine uncomfortably screaming. So to answer, yes the noise is "normal". Give it some time to settle - at 5000 your belt should be ok enough. Also note the rollers in the malossi are quite crappy and will be shot in around 4000 kms.

I installed a Malossi vario, clutch and belt at 13,000km. Replaced the belt at 29,000km. Still using the same 11.5g roller weights, vario and clutch at 34,000km. For me the performance has been very pleasing.

extweem,
Please go to your profile and put your location in it, as others have already done on the thread. It makes replying much more relevant. There are other variator kits available, but some areas can not get certain ones. We can not tell if you are in one of those areas or not.
