Stock clutch =6.4 seconds from 0-50 mph.
I just did five 0-50 mph runs with my 2012 with the original tires, basically cold.
Margins of error- I used the stopwatch feature on my phone attached to the handlebar and the bikes speedometer.
First two runs were 6.33 seconds exactly.
Then 6.52, 6.03, 6.71.
Toss out the high and low runs and we average 6.4 seconds from a dead stop with both feet down to 50 mph.

Stay tuned to see the comparison with the white Malossi clutch spring. It has been ordered along with some new tires.
The new tires will be the biggest variable in the test I believe.
Questions, comments, answers?

Oh, John G, I thought hard about leaving it alone, seriously. I am apparently not capable of that.

Nothing to add really Tbear, just keen to see your results. It could be another gem of info on this forum for other members. Actually, I'm surprised JohnyC hasn't chipped in yet. This sounds like his kind of thing 🤔

Well, I admit JohnnyC is my Silverwing inspiration.
And thank you, I am equally anxious.
Meanwhile: I got to ride my Reflex around the Gila Mountains in southwest New Mexico. This is Box Canyon Rd.

Somewhat Scientific Test of the Malossi White Clutch Spring Empty

IMO the Malossi white spring is hands down the best/cheapest mod you can do to the SW600 cvt, is not so easy to install, but IMO it is more effective/cheaper than DRP sliding weights, IME it virtually eliminates the "Belt Slap" issue, I did not notice any significant change in highway MPG either.

Plenty info to be found on a search for " malossi white spring ".

BTW a stock SW600 "May" do, 0-60 in 8 sec. + maybe a 16 sec. 1/4 mile with a skilled driver scratch

My bad I corrected the 0-60 to the 0-50 that I actually measured.
Still seems a little fast if a skilled rider can do 0-60 in 8 seconds.
I am not too skilled and weigh 210 pounds. Perhaps the speedometer is a little optimistic?
I think I once said I’ve owned over 50 bikes. Should have been over 30. Just ‘fessing up. I am not trying to impress anyone.
Anyway, we are comparing the bike with and without the Malossi spring, so the actual times won’t be as important as the difference between the two.
