sticking rear pulley

my scooter accelerates fine when it is cold or has been sitting for about 5 minutes. when i accelerate and reach top speed and then come to a stop the scooter struggles to engage in first gear. could it be a soft worn out contra spring or a sticking rear pulley?

That sounds correct, although "first gear" is really not a thing. You should just pull your cover and service the variator and contra assy's.

i will be installing a polini speed control variator, new rollers, new contra spring. what should i use to clean the rear pulley assembly of off dust and grime?what grease should i use? (edited)

Use whatever mild cleaner/solvent you'd use on anything else motor related.

I use a VERY light tough of standard synthetic grease, or even better is just using the variator lube that Polini/Malossi usually sell.
