PostSubject: Dr Pulley Sliders   Sun 27 Mar 2016, 21:10

Thanks to this forum and all the members who post help I just installed Dr Pulley sliders on my 2012 Silverwing.  I am NOT a mechanic but I did it in 1:37 with all your help.  By the way, I have a shop manual but the pictorial I found on here was MUCH better.  Thanks to all and I hope I can add something to the forum in the future.

Just curious mike712 and CnR, what weight sliders did you install? Did you put on a new belt also?

I used 26g, and yes, I installed a new belt also since I now had 16,100 miles on mine. Total cost belt and sliders were probably $160, and with the help of people on here did it myself.

I also used 26g. i only have 4000 miles so all i did was install sliders. The only other mod I intend to do is GIVI adjustable. Ordered it last week.

Good to hear. I'm leaning towards installing 26g. sliders when it's time to change belt. I've got about 5,500 mi. on my 2012. mike712 you will like the GIVI adjustable screen. I bought my SWing used and it had a GIVI 214 DT one piece. Didn't like it. So much buffeting. My head hadn't been knocked around that much since i was a freshman in high school.

I've put about 2000mi on my new belt and 26g's, and my launch RPM went from 4000 to about 4900, and, my final cruise RPM is about 500 RPM lower then original stock rollers.

My clutch onset has remained at about 2200 on both setups.

I'm thinking of trying the 24g slides, hoping to get my launch RPM to about 5200 or so, without losing the high ratio RPM reduction.

Has this been the general observation?
I'm thinking that if the only difference is weight, cruise RPM should be the same, while the initial RPM should increase.

Thanks.

I have the 22g sliders. My initial launch rpm is about 5200 to 5300 rpms and it quickly goes to 6100. The acceleration is great, but I lost a little off the top end. I used to top out at an indicated speed of 113. Now the highest I have seen is 105. IMO the quicker acceleration is well worth the loss of top end.

What about the fuel consumption? with the price of fuel affraid I would err the other way.
Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Launch RPM is the RPM that you achieve and hold just after a WOT take-off.
Since it's is a function of clutch engagement combined with the effective starting ratio of the variator, it would be different for an aftermarket clutch.

After a standing start go to and hold WOT, that RPM will be your "Launch" RPM....

I think it means "Wide Open Throttle", but , I could be wrong, never having done it myself. Smile

Thanks mate, I sort of worked that out a couple of minutes after I posted. I've never done a wide open throttle take off either, as you need special qualifications for that, like a face full of pimples, a hoody, and a noisy shagged out 125 scooter and L plates. Wink

Yup, it's juvenile, but, I didn't want to miss out on my mid-life crisis...

I had planned on having a red Corvette and a stripper girlfriend........didn't have the money.
So, I thought I'd find a stripper girlfriend that HAD a red Corvette.......didn't have the money.
Then, I tried to find a red headed stripper to be my girlfriend........
.....Well, seems strippers are looking for the money!

It turned out I could afford a RED Silverwing....The rest as they say, is history! jocolor

As far as fuel consumption goes, it all depends on how hard I twist the throttle. If I keep my speed to around 60 mpg I will average over 50 mpg and as much as 65 mpg. The lowest mpg I have ever seen is around 47. I think the power commander helps keep the mpgs up.

I am getting my delivered as I type it. Will most likely install them the following weekend, or not :-)
