By that you mean take power away? There is some "belt drag" plus the force required to spin the weights on the first pulley so a cvt requires some power to operate, but of course this is not very noticeable. The pocket bike cvt's will work on the titan 4-stroke's and the comet torque-a-verter's I would assume will work on the four strokes as well. The problem with the pocket bike cvt's though is they reverse the direction of the drive sprocket causing mounting issues.
