Default CVT hook up

hey guys, can anyone tell me how hard it is to connect an electric motor up to a cvt transmission? I have a little 50cc yamaha zuma that seems like it would be a good first project, but I have not seen too much information about building an scooter with cvt into electric.

Well, there is a problem with cvt, because if you want to use it, you will need e. motor that will have same rpm like ex ice engine.

People usually remove all (including cvt) and built new transmission or get manual gearbox.

If you will decide to keep cvt, you would have a lot of problems, because minimal motor changes means adjusting weights and springs (clutch) for hours.
I wanted to built my scooter into electric, but i did't, cos it has cvt. Now i am looking for old sports motorcycle.
