This is a document I put together from a post by Scootnfast on the Aprilia forum. It starts out like this:

Variator, roller weights and contra spring mechanics for dummies! Learn how it works

OK, another issue I see asked a lot is about different roller weights, different variators, and different contra springs. So I am going to attempt to put it out in simple terms. I drew these pictures real quick, and they are not to scale, but they should work and give you a good idea.

The truth of the matter is, A new variator, spring, and weights WILL NOT increase your vehicles over all power!!!

What it does do is adjust your rate of acceleration, and at what RPM your motor runs at while it is accelerating, and at what speed the motor is reving when you reach the highest gear ratio available.................
