    I have the same problem - it seems as if the bike is stuck in first gear all the time however im also getting a lot of black smoke.  When I cover the air inlet on the carb it seems to stop smoking so much but it still wont go into neutral.  Is there any way of resolving this myself without going into a mechanic?

There is no neutral on a CVT system but if it's not going thriugh it's auto transmissiom properly or smoothly it will be the six little roller weight worn and having flats on them, change them, it's cheap as chips. variator thay they sit in could be worn but most likely just the rollers, as the engine speed changes they move to change the gearing but if not round anymore they can't roll. metal cylinders with a plastic cover

I have a 91 buick skylark. When I drive sometimes it won't accelerate like I'll lose power even if I floor it. And I died going up a hill flooring my gas. It's not a head gasket I already checked. My

I think I would check the fuel pressure and the maximum fuel pressure from the pump.
I would look to data if temp sensor , map, tps,
lack of power can be cause by many things
hope it helps

The engine loses power when 1st gear is engaged,

This sounds like a broken tooth on the main axle. This would account for the lump in every gear and a power loss due to the axle being bent also. I would change the axle, support bearings, and the gear the axle engages. Check the output shaft for bending also.

This could be bad bearings on the shafts but is is highly unlikely if the gearbox oil has been kept at proper levels. In any event, the gearbox will need to be opened up for inspection.

Clutch will not release

remove the gearbox to replace the clutch.this will teach you not to hold it on hills on the clutch but to put handbrake on and neutral.also the same at traffic lights and no boy racer flying starts where accelerator is floored and clutch ridden slowly to get most power to wheels,still its not difficult to change and clutches not that expensive if you do it yourself,garage price around 800 euros
