Whatever. The cuts in the belt of a scooter cvt don't engage anything. They are only there to help reduce the bending losses as it goes around the pulley. The only transfer of power come from the pulley halves squeezing the sides of the belt. There are compression losses in the rubber and a certain percentage of slipping.
