Is one roller better than another and what's the benefit of more weight verses less weight. I have 2008 sw 600cc and never replaced them. I just replaced the starter the other day actually. Should I leave rollers alone. What's the going rate for a
Mechanic to charge hourly?

Why not first describe bike, miles,, service record---belt been changed?

Lots of miles, 50,000 or so maybe change rollers//sliders with OEM parts.....worked for me in over 90,000 SilverWing miles.

Can't do yourself----shop time probably $100-$150 per hour---look at belt/rollers/change belt should in done in about an hour.....by Honda shop that has done it before!

Thanks for that, SW 600cc 2008 serviced regularly, belt changed 3 times, I have 39000 miles on clock, never done anything with sliders.

Sliders are after market. Honda uses rollers. So if yours is stock then you have 39K on stock rollers? That is a good record if so. I changed my belt at about 14K and the rollers were fine but I had already ordered DR Pulley sliders (28 g) so I put them in. Most people on here think sliders are better than sliced bread, I would disagree. If you want to change the weight (hence performance) then yes sliders are the way to go. DR sliders generally go for $50 plus, Honda rollers are in the $20. range and obviously last a long time. So if you are happy with stock performance like I was then Honda rollers are the way to go. There are plenty of other posts on here about rollers-sliders, just use the search function. Good luck. (putting on my flame resistant underwear)

Yeah, what Glenn said.

Even though I am a big fan of Dr Pulley sliders, there is nothing "wrong" with OEM stuff.

Re shop-time costs; why not pick up the phone, call your local shop & ask? As Mr Grinsel says, it only takes an hour, or less, to replace a belt and/or rollers. Other jobs are going to be more time consuming because everything is hidden behind the tupperware. Most shops charge whatever labor rate "the book" says. Unless they run into a problem, then the price (time) adds up

I am replacing my 26 Dr Pulley Sliders for 28g OEM Rollers.

Rollers weight  Roller10

I replaced the rollers when I bought my SW, that's one of them on the left looking pretty tired. The new one is on the right. I assumed that the old ones were OEM from new. they certainly look the same. The old ones weigh 29g and the new ones 28g.

I just wanted to share my curiosity....we have three cats! cat

From what I read on different scooter sites, etc, the OEM installed roller weights can vary from 28-30g depending on year model/markets/geography, heavier rollers are best for heavy traffic and slow speeds, vice versa, etc
