PostSubject: Dr. Pulley sliders - which ones do I have?   Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:14 am

Hello,

Recently acquired 2003 Silverwing with 19,900 miles.  A glance through the maintenance records shows Dr. Pulley sliders were installed in late 2015 with belt change around 16k miles.  However, the weight of the sliders is not recorded in records, so I don't know what's in there.  I have lost contact information for the seller and cannot contact him.

Without disassembling the variator, is there any easy way to figure out the weight of the sliders contained therein?  Can we "approximate" based on full throttle RPM's?

The scooter seems to have pretty strong acceleration.  However, when giving full throttle after allowing the clutches to engage, the engine climbs to 5100-5200 rpm and stays planted there throughout the speed range until above 55-60 mph, at which time the RPM's finally climb further with higher speed.

I would think more aggressive Dr. Pulley sliders (say 24 gr) would allow the engine to climb further into the high-RPM power band than 5100-5200 RPM.  Perhaps I have less-aggressive sliders in there (26 or 28 gr), keeping full-throttle RPM's a bit lower.

No top-speed test runs and "cruise RPM" runs have yet been performed.

Any input based on WOT RPM observations is appreciated.  Thank you!

Since most of the members here are 'mature', regretably our psychic powers aren't what the once were. So you're just going to have to disassemble the variator and weigh the sliders or rollers. There are no markings on the sliders or rollers.

I put 24gr sliders into my Silverwing.

It'll peg right at that exact RPM range (5100-5200).

Don't know if yours are 24gr, but I hear those are a popular choice.

Hope that helps!
