Is your clutch slipping? 10 gram rollers or sliders, but you'll lose a little top end. Wouldn't hurt to upgrade the air filter with a k&n or uni if you haven't already. Then rejet the carb.
I like the GTS 150, it's a good little buggy.

There are 100's of threads addressing this issue. From CVT upgrades, engine upgrades and gear upgrades. Browse the topics you will find more answers than you need.
More than likely your factory rollers in the CVT are 17 to 19 grams where a lighter roller will give you more bottom end. A mainspring upgrade could also be the ticket.
My advice one step at a time don't try to do it all at once you will be able to go back to original easier to go a different direction.

I did the cdi box and dropped to 10 gram weights. you should see a big change. I think that's the best bang for your buck.

Yes your question has been asked,and answered probably a hundred times,But! If you don't know what anyone is talking about.... Well then.
Okay for starters you will want to remove the side cover on your engine(drivers side),then get a good impact wrench to remove the variator pulley ( the 1 in front closest to the seat). Use a 17mm socket. Remove the outer part of the pulley. pull the belt off and let it hang. Next remove the back side of the pulley ( be careful that is where your weights are hiding). Flip the back pulley over and you will remove a weird looking basket,the round black and brass rollers are you weights. go online and order 9 gram rollers, replace them put everything back together and test drive your buggy! That is your start! Next if you are still not happy with the results..... Well then it is time to go after the clutch main spring!
