what does the CVT tranny look like, versus the standard, from the outside of the bike?

The internet has everything labeled as a CVT(probably to sell more).

Or do you need to take things apart to tell?

The engine mounts are in different spots too............The engine mount is welded 5/8" further forwards for the CVT than the non-cvt

The pics below are of an X2 frame engine mounts

Thank you guys. I'm pretty sure judging from the outside, mine's the standard reduction box.

Also, my bike came with a different carb. The guy I bought it from had a pocketbikeparts receipt for a "HP" carb. It has a green bubble that he pushed a few times before starting the bike. Perhaps a picture would help? Was just wondering whether I should keep or replace.

ya lol, the fat pulley gets skinny and thats what make the ratio dynamic
Pretty close......


The forward pulley has a sliding sheave with variator weights behind it that puts pressure on the belt to make the belt ride up the forward pulley to make the surface diameter larger as centrifugal force applies pressure while the spring loaded pulley in the back splits wider and gets smaller to give the most topend speeds..............

They basically trade places and sizes to make topend gains and swap back in the lower speeds for torque........

Not at all! If that was how I asked for help, I'd be acting so rude! I posted and then eeeeked at my wording, it sounded like I was demanding pics haha. So my bad! I'll pull off the fairings and take some pictures for comparisons to what you posted :)
