If not leaking there, then it may be the crank oil seal on the bottom of the engine. Not a hard fix, but a bit heavy on the labor. Have to remove engine to get it done. But Mick, is right, they usually have to have the "O" ring replaced on the dipstick. That is very common.
Belts slipping means both drive belts are slipping. To check, remove both screws on the shifter plate, unscrew knob and remove shifter plate. Assuming yours is between your legs below front of seat. The Vari-pulley is under there. There is a sticky on here about how to R&R the drive belts. Very good to follow it for that repair. That should get you more than one speed.
Duh, yea, you have that type. Went back and looked at your pics, it is the std shift on the go system, with the Variator pulley system. A good hour or so, and you can have both belts replaced.
Unless of course, there is oil on the belts, then that would have an effect on the motion of the rider.
