PostSubject: Dr Pulley Sliders   Thu Mar 13, 2014 7:53 pm

Ive spent ages going through this site trying to find clear explanations from members of the effects on the SW of different weight sliders. I am pretty certain that I want some but am not sure which ones to get. Who on here has them, what weight have you got, have you ever tried any other weight and how will it affect my bike with them on?

Any information would be great.

28gm Sliders will give you improved acceleration over that of the OEM 28 gm rollers. Those same Sliders will also smooth out acceleration, help with belt slap and also give a slight drop in cruising RPMs. Which would get you a slight improvement in fuel economy (all other things being equal).

Going to lower weight Sliders will give you quicker acceleration still. Many here have switched to 26gm Sliders with very happy results. About the lowest you could go would be 21 or 22 gm Sliders but they are very hard to come by. Those 21/22gm Sliders will give you very dramatic performance.

Of course everything has a price, so the trade off in performance will be your reduced economy.

Conversely heavier weight rollers or sliders will reduce your acceleration, increase your top speed, and improve your fuel economy.

You'll be happy with 28gm Sliders and impressed with 26gm Sliders. If you're looking for drama PM me I've got a new set of 21gm sliders I can sell you.

I have the 22g sliders. The acceleration is great and I still get 50+ mpg.

I don't think the weight (unless you get really extreme) will affect top speed, but it will affect acceleration.

I run the 26g sliders, which have a noticeable but not dramatic difference from stock rollers. Acceleration is definitely better. I haven't run the other weights so I don't know how they do.

I have run 28 gr, 26 gr, and 24 gr. I previously had a J Costa varistor in my Swing, which provided much improved acceleration over the stock rollers, but sucked the gasoline and raised highway cruising rpm by 500. I finally settled on the 24 gr, which provided the best compromise for me of very good acceleration and reduced highway cruising rpm.

I went to sliders in order to reduce the vibration when starting from a stop.  I first ran 26gr sliders for about 6 months. I was not satisfied with the reduced vibration, and installed 24gr sliders. I am happy with my 24gr sliders. I love my smooth acceleration, and power.. WOW!  I did not think that it would effect my mileage, but I am getting about 2 mpg less with the 24gr sliders.  Possibly due to the higher rpm needed to lock down the clutch on starting from a stop. My rpm seems to be the same as compared to the 26gr sliders.  I did get a 500 rpm reduction as compared to the OEM rollers.

Thank you everybody for your imput. I think I will try the 26gr sliders but quite tempted by Cosmic jumpers offer of 21gr ones. Does anybody have any recommendations of where to get them from.

Hornblower, as your in England, I got mine from Dr Pulley.com Just type it in and the website comes up. I think it's in Germany. I wish i had got the sliding peices as well but, that's up to you. I have had them in for just over 10,000mls now and i would say the most noticiable difference is the acceleration pickup, most useful when a quick burst of speed is called for. Smile

I followed Bigbird's advice ( he usually knows best) and went for the 24grm. Dr Pulley even sent me a birthday greeting, very nice!. Smile
