PostSubject: Where did they get these prices from?   Tue Jul 30, 2013 6:34 am

Hi All,

At the end of the month I get a vacation from work so I decided to do a little maintenance on my 2006 Silverwing.
I called the Honda dealership in Israel to get a quote on roller weights and timing tensioner (stock),

The prices I got was (you may want to sit down Shocked ) :
Roller weights 460 NIS +VAT 18% - about 150$ US.
Timing tensioner 650 NIS +VAT 18% - about 213$ US

I asked the guy if they were made out of gold (28 gram wheights mey cost you a little bit Smile )but he was dead serious about these prices.affraid affraid affraid

I don't know anything about a Timing Tensioner --no one here as ever posted any problems or concerns about it. But you should probably consider contacting Dr Pulley (www.unionmaterial.com) for a set of their 28gm or 26 gm sliding ("Sliders") roller weights.

Your Silverwing will be much better off for changing to the Sliders and they're certainly going to cost you a whole lot less than that outrageous dealer quote. HTH

My Silverwing did 66,000km and I want to replace the timing tensioner (aka cam chain tensioner) to be on the safe side before it will fail.

I'm planning to take off the plastic covers all around my Silverwing in order to repair some plastic damage and perform a valve adjustment so if I'm already there I should replace the tensioner as well.

Can someone recommend a good dealer that willing to ship this part to Israel?

Two questions if I may.

1. Who has had experience with the Dr. Pulley Roller weights and how was it?
2. Which of the weights suits the Swing 600 best?

Thanks!

Lots of folks here have upgraded to Dr Pulley sliding roller weights. Everyone who has made the change has been very happy with the results --well maybe one old curmudgeon out there wasn't.

The most popular Dr Pulley "sliders" are 28 gm (the same as the OEM roller weights)' followed by 26 gm sliders. You can also get lower weight sliders or rollers, either of which will give you a dramatic acceleration increase at the expense of top end speed and fuel economy.

I've been using 28 gm Dr Pulley sliders for about 8 years and have ben very happy with the,. Also, they haven't worn out the way OEM rollers do. HTH

Drive belt part  no. is 23100-MCT-003.
Makinaparts.com list the belt at 79.79 euros/$108/£67 - OEM belt.
Don't know if they ship to the US though. (They are in Greece)

Fantastic $60 investment for your SWing - great smoothness and more pep during acceleration. I have 24gram and see no reason to go heavier. If you accelerate at the same rate as OEM - then doubt you are going to see any decrease in your mileage - but that is a hard thing to do. My top end is over 100mph which is way more than I need. Your RPMs drop a few hundred with Dr Pulley so your top end should actually higher. If plan to run your SWing flat out I suggest you consider getting a better ride as the suspension and setup is not designed to handle most roads when riding in excess of 100mph.

I have over 18k kl 0n my 24 gram Dr Pulley ,and my V light goes on every other day,and I have to reset.My rpm goes up to 5500 rpm at 100 klph,and down to 4500 rpm .When it rides at 5500 rpm I burn more gas and I see no fuel benefit with 24 gram sliders .Im thinking of going back to 28 gram stock rollers.The v light only goes on when I ride over 105 klph. The acceleration is great, but that V light is bugging me to no end.I installed a new belt at the same time as the sliders.Has anyone else had this problem?

Unless you are very aggressive with your throttle hand I can't imagine why your V light would come ON at ~105 Kph with OEM rollers.That'd be about 65 mph. I've had Dr Pulley 28 gm Sliders on for years and consistently ride between 70 & 80 mph on the freeways and the V light hasn't come ON unless I reach that 16000 mile mark.

That said, 24 gm sliders do allow the RPMs to wind up quite quickly and the disparity between the rear wheel speed & the high RPMs will trigger the V light because the system 'sees' the belt slipping.

That's with 24 gm sliders, but shouldn't happen with 28 gm silders or OEM 28 gm rollers

I've never had a V-light problem with Dr Pulley 26 gm Sliders.

My 2006 with 28 gram Dr Pulley sliders never had a problem with the V-light nor does her 2009 with the 26 gram sliders.

For some reason my Dr pulley 24 gram sliders seams to run between 4500 rpm,and some times run at 5500 rpm and at 100 klph .When the rpm is 5500 and at 100 klph if I go any faster the V light goes on.At 95 klph rpm drops to 5000,and V light stays off.I did not have this problem before my trike conversion,could be related?I will go back to stock rollers in the spring or go to 28 gram sliders. I do like the acceleration with 24 gram sliders.
