I'm looking for advice on selecting the correct weight for replacement Variator Sliders for my Silverwing 600.
The scooter is used mostly for urban or country road riding. I avoid highway/ Interstates, so top end performance is not my priority.
I'm more interested in smooth "controlled" acceleration for urban environments, with the ability to reach 70 - 75 mph on the open road.
Can anyone advise the optimum slider weight to achieve these goals.
Thanks G

Most people choose 26GR DR Pulleys sliders, best balance for slightly improved acceleration, less rpm at higher speeds and overall fuel economy, get them here, they are in Florida and fast shipping IME.

For a faster acceleration, go with the 24gr DP Sliders. You will obtain a 500 RPM drop above 60 MPH.
