I'm about to order some dr pulleys, most likely 24g.
Do I need the sliding pieces too or are the standard honda ones ok?

Not absolutely necessary, but they do "tighten up" the ramp plate and quiet things down a bit. Check the FSM to see what Honda recommends. If your sliding pieces are loose, either on the ramp plate or on the variator guides, or you are at/near a change interval then I would certainly upgrade to Dr Pulley sliding pieces. They wont wear out.

But as Cliffyk says, above, there is nothing wrong with the OEM slide pieces either.

Bob and I just got back from an 1800 mile ride to AR, LA, MS. He changed my OEM rollers to 26GR sliders and Dr Pulley slide pieces. The Swing was very smooth. I now have 70,852 miles on my SWing. Trip was good. Glad I changed to the Dr Pulley's.

I had to change the Sliding pieces on my Burg 400, it it was rattling at idle, the new sliding pieces cured the noise and it was very quiet after they were replaced. The wear was visible as excess play, they had worn on the variator guides. This type of wear is common on these type variators. It is a good idea to replace the slides when replacing the rollers, that is why Dr Pulley sells them, but the Honda ones are probably just as good.
Cheers!

At great possible, personal embarrassment risk, I have to ask: "What exactly are these sliding pieces y'all are speaking of... ???" Did I leave something out when I switched over to sliders from rollers ???

Remember those 4 gray triangle shaped pieces that fell off the ramp plate when you removed the variator...then you had to get down on your hands & knees to locate the one you heard drop? That's them.
