62 mph speed 17.49 sec    wow that seams Slow. thanks for the conversion for Us UK owners.

Yes but when I see the 62 mph on my original indicator, GPS show me 50 mph. So we can understand that the original indicator has a wrong show. Its show us 12.43 mph much more.

All x9 speedos over-estimate the speed, most massively so.  Only the 500SL speedo was within 5% - the rest are easily 10% out at some speeds.

They don't.  They are also optimistic.  They are also awful to read 'at a glance' subconsciously so the 650 owners tell me.

Agreed Jim!

Nice big numbers, easy to see ... but numbers! You actually have to "read" them - not just glance.

They are 10% "over" right across the range. The error can be fixed with a *Speedo Healer (Google), but that makes the mileometer misread.


*A little device that fits between the sender and the dash, which re-times the pulses. Price circa £80!!

And this is the weight of my J Costa variator's roller.





When I put 1 roller it show 15.2 grams. When I put 2 roller it show me 30.5 grams. So I roller has a weight of 15.25 grams.

Here is the new battery.





New and old battery 




New battery is 12 volt and 14 ah. The old battery was 12 volt and 12 ah. I used 14 ah because I will change the headlight with the xenon kit.

Hi friends. I put in J Costa variator last weekend. It's magnificent, fantastic and make my bike faster. Here are the loading photographs.








First we take the clutch. If you throw back the clutch it's easily dislocate.










That's the original variator and the J Costa variator. The left one which is original has 6 roller. J costa has 12 roller and they product the new technology.



The differance of two roller















J Costa has loaded. Lets try it with a Gilera Runner VXR 200 which has full loaded Malossi equipment

My friend drive my bike and I record the video. He drive because he is light weight then me.

First video: Piaggio X9 with J Costa variator vs Full Malossi loaded Gilera Runner VXR 200

Second video: Stock Aprilia Sportcity 250 vs Full Malossi loaded Gilera Runner VXR 200 (Let's see the third bike )

Looks great. Thanks for the pictures.

My local shop, while trying to figure out a fluctuating tachometer (no engine revs when this happens), is going to install the J Costa variator on my X9 500 evo. It currently has the old, original 6 weight variator. I'm hoping that performance will increase, as well as perhaps less noise (barking seal) from the belt.

Hi. Thank you for your message. I heared that when you put in J costa to your 500cc scooter you can have 8 wheel horse power. And also it will have less noise. But I want to say that when I put in the J Costa it's sounds very very interesting. When the rpm goes to 8000 and I leave the gas rev going down and I heared a sound like a plane. Yes like a plane
I will take a video for this. Keep watching

Interesting "plane" sound. I get my 500 back from the shop today so I'll be curious to see if my new J Costa sounds similar.

My mechanic called me yesterday and told me that the difference between the stock 6 weight variator and the J Costa variator is amazing. This was the first mod of this type they'd done. He took my 500 for a test ride yesterday afternoon and said it felt like a rocketship/motorbike from 25mph and up. He said he didn't notice much difference between 0-25.

I'm excited to see it for myself.

I think if you buy Malossi kevlar belt and Polini clutch you can fell the difference between 0-25

Forget the "Malossi Kevlar Belt" - the Piaggio one *is* Kevlar, they just don't make a song and dance about it.  It's also cheaper...

Got my 500 back today. The J Costa variator is soooo much better. I still use stock belts and stock clutch, but I am very pleased with the performance. It rides significantly smoother, the barking seal is minimized (not gone but mostly forgotten), and the pick up and really peppy  around 3000rpm and above.  I'm very happy with this mod.

We will use the belt with Nexus 500 which has use the same engine with X9 500. And I will tell you the changes

I think the original belt is warming when you drive higher rpm. I read from a web site that Malossi kevlar belt is durable then original.

Don't believe everything on the Internet!  Malossi belts tend to shred with little notice, and rarely if ever last longer than the minimum expected from an OEM belt.

However, I expect they might be cheaper where you are then the originals - in which case they may make sense even if they have to be changed more often.
