So, the Dr. Pulley sliders outside shape, regardless of their weight, allow the variator to be further open at idle (smaller countershaft diameter) and closer together (larger countershaft diameter) at highway speeds.
The weight of the sliders only controls how fast the variator goes thru this motion.

So if I'm happy with my Wing's acceleration from a dead stop, and I just want lower RPM's at highway speeds, then I would go with 28gr sliders.

If I want quicker acceleration from a stop, I'll go with 26gr sliders. The engine will be turning slightly more RPM's at lower speeds.

If I want really fast acceleration from a stop, then I go with 24gr. The engine will be turning much more RPM's at lower speeds.

The lighter the weight, the slower the variator goes thru it's open/closed motion. The variator will eventually get to it's fully closed position no matter the weight of the sliders, it will just take it longer to get there.

Does this sound right? I'm just trying to help people understand how the weights effect the variator or "gear ratio" of the bike.

Sounds right to me, as to how it's been explained, but my knowledge of this is purely theoretical, my S'wing is bone stock

Sounds like an excellent, " How do it do that?", explanation to me.

Great explanation! - That sounds exactly correct to me. So, being a larger sort of guy who lives at high altitude:

"If I want really fast acceleration from a stop, then I go with 24gr. The engine will be turning much more RPM's at lower speeds."

... is why I went with the 22g sliders...

What are the weights that are stock on the bike?

Bluerider3... IIRC the standard is a 28g unit. I think I'm going to get the 26g sliders just for the slight improvement bump. Seems as though some folks have enjoyed them.
