Here's a thought for you. Our bikes are different, but similar enough that you may find this will work on your Silverwing.
I made the mistake of installing my DPS weights the wrong way once. While I did "goof up" on the installation — the results were incredible!
I had used the DPS weights for awhile and put them in wrong one night without realizing it. I went to merge onto the freeway the next morning, and couldn't believe what happened. I twisted the throttle and my head jerked back
. (Yes, this is on a 400cc scooter!) The rpms jumped immediately to about 7000 and began to climb rapidly
. Then the CVT "shifted", which was the DPS weights moving to another face. The rpms dropped to about 6500 and began once again to climb really fast
to about 8000...and unfortunately, I was gaining too quickly on the traffic and had no room to keep accelerating.
I had the biggest grin on my face. I didn't know what I'd done...but I liked it!
Here's what they looked like installed "wrong".
Here's what they look like installed correctly with the groove at the top of the DPS weight.
- It was like adding another 100ccs to the bike. The power was instantaneous.
- The power was instantaneous. I wanted to use it, and this was not a good idea. I knew I'd end up with a "performance award" from the Washington State Patrol very quickly.
- The rpms would jump at the slightest increase in engine load, whether from twisting the throttle...or simply head winds or road grade. The rpm jump was absolutely smooth though. If I didn't have a tach in front of me, I'd have a hard time knowing it.
So I offer that experience as something that a few of you might wish to experiment with. Just don't blame any performance awards on me!
