Edit may 29th:
I tried derestricting with my new belt: Do not want.
Yes, in ideal conditions (downhill or on very long flats), I can pin the
needle all the way to the top (probably more than 70 km/h) but the
acceleration and midrange power suffers greatly. It would slow down more
when climbing hills, and wind have more effect on speed than when left
restricted. Top speed restricted is now 65Km/h (halfway into the Yamaha
logo). That is more than enough for an urbanite like me.
I am not saying that you shouldn't derestrict. Maybe it would be better for
you than for me (mainly because I'm on the heavy side, I weight 215 lbs).
So try it for yourself, and if you don't like it, just revert.
Also: by now, I think that three or four persons sent me private messages
asking me how to re-tighten the belt after loosening it. (In part four,
remember: spread the rear pulley halves to loosen the belt so that
re-assembling the front pulley is easier).
Once the front pulley is assembled, just start the engine. The belt will
tighten itself almost immediately. Do this before replacing the trans cover
to see for yourself.
Also: Goldvisaguy, a member of the c3rider.com forums, got a brilliant idea
for a tool to replace the strap wrench. It was quite cumbersome and
frustrating to use a strap wrench to remove the front pulley, so
Goldvisaguy invented a homemade tool that cost less than 10 bucks. I built
mine and it works fine, but I had to use three L shaped pieces bolted
together because they were too thin. All bolts are 1/4 inch dia.

Edit May 25 2008:
If over 4000 Km on the odometer, I would suggest you to get a new
transmission belt and replace it every 4000 km thereafter. Belt is rated to
last 10 000Km, but you may lose a lot of top speed after just a few
thousand Kms, because the belt gets narrower as it wears, thus changing the
transmission range. I replaced my belt at 4500 Km. With a new belt, and
with the restricting washer put back on, I get top speed almost as good as
when unrestricted with the old belt, without the loss of acceleration. A
new belt cost about 20 bucks, and if you can perform the derestriction as
shown in my videos, you can also replace the belt by yourself. Just take
off the rear pulley nut using the 17mm socket and the strap wrench. You can
figure the rest by yourself. Just make sure the belt is put in the correct
direction: The arrows on the belt shows the correct rotation.
But you may ask: why is it faster
now, restricted with a new belt, than when it was brand new? I would say
that it is because my C3 is now well 'broken in', the engine parts are less
stiff, that is why it is faster.
Also in this update: performance parts are now being made especially for
New variator kit, price unknown:
New ECU without engine rpm limit 299$:
I haven't tried any of these yet. I plan to buy the var kit soon, though.
Edit 8May 2008: It seems that this derestriction, while increasing top
speed, will also decrease the acceleration slightly.
This serie of five videos shows in all details how to derestrict the Yamaha
C3 scooter. This derestriction will add 6-7 Km/h to the stock top speed.
A few word of warning: I can only take responsibility for the good results
you may get. You may damage your scooter if you are too clumsy to perform
this modification. Proceed at your own risks. Be also aware that the C3's
suspension and brakes may not be designed to perform correctly at speeds
above the stock limit. If you hurt or kill yourself riding a C3 that you
have modified because of me, I will not feel sorry for you, nor will I feel
responsible for your demise, because you were properly warned about the
risks. Also, keep in mind that modifying your C3 will void your warranty
and may also void your insurance. Always ride responsibly, and ride fast
only on roads/streets you are very familiar with.
I know that there are other ways to make this scooter going faster or to have better acceleration, and
these ways are: replacing the stock variator with a better one, using
lighter roller weights to improve acceleration (but if those weights are
too light, you will lose some top speed). And there are other, more
advanced modifications that can be made to the carburetor, engine and Exhaust, though these mods may increase
performance, they may also reduce the reliability of your C3, and will most
probably cause premature wear.
I may experiment a little more on my C3 in the future. I will keep you
