All I can say is AWESOME!!! affraid

Had them installed today along with a new OEM CVT belt, front and rear brake pads, front bearings, and an Intersection sensor detector thingy. The bike is now incredibly responsive, pickup from a stop is like I upgraded another 200cc. And pickup while already cruising is AMAZING!!! I'm sure my gas mileage is going to suffer, but right now I don't really care. motorcycle

I let another member of our scooter club who owns a SW try it out, he ordered a set this afternoon!!! :lol!:

That strong magnet that sets off the detectors built into intersections to know that you are there to change the signal.......

This is a VARY clean family forum, even implying any thing vulgar can get you banned. Twisted Evil Because I know how religious you are I know you meant Oh My Feels Great, but some people that don't know you might think you meant something else. Wink Yes Bob was impressed with how your Wing handled with the Dr. Pulleys.

Your mpg's will go down but it sure if fun with them. I had them for a short time and didn't care for the high rpm's up until about 6,000 rpms. But it will get you going very fast and it is a lot of fun. If you don't like the high rpm's you could mix them with other weight sliders, 4 of 1 weight and 4 of another weight.

I did really enjoy the feeling of pushing you back into the seat when WOT. It probably feels more than 200cc too with the power. Keep us informed on how you like them and your mpg's.

Thank You, "model28a", for the clarification on the gentleman's abbreviation. For a little bit there I thought we had another one of those macho types that can't make it thru a complete sentence without using the infamous "F" word or at least a reference to it.

Can't speak for the 22gram Dr Pulley sliders - but I can say nothing but good things about the 24 gram Dr Pulley sliders that I installed about 10,000 miles ago. The off-the-line AND freeway acceleration is amazing! Plus they are so smooooooth! Far less belt thumping and mirror vibration. Less vibration means less wear on tear on you when you go for a long ride. When you change that belt - be sure to install some Dr. Pulley sliders - you will not be disappointed - worth every bit of the $60 that they cost me. The only downside is people wondering why you are grinning (because you are twisting your throttle)! Whoever thought these sliders up deserves a spot in the motorcycle hall of fame!

In your video you fitted 26grams(i kept it for future ref). Do you now advise 24grams as better for general use? iam not really interested in getting better acceleration or less MPG, just changing to Dr Pulley's when the time comes. I normally ride alone(no pillion rider) and weigh about 14 stone. i don't know what that equates to in pounds. As you know i value your opinion and advice on these matters.

1 stone = 14 pounds

i'm also interested in lowering my cruising (60 mph) RPM and reducing vibration - what weight roller is best?

Old Limey,

So, when you go to the doctors and they have you step on the scale, does it really measure out in 'stones"? I have always been curious about this measurement when I hear it. We Americans gave you the "English" language and this is what you do with it... Cool

If you really don't want more acceleration then just put the 28 gr in. I have those and am happy with them. I tried the 22 gr and the revs were just too high for me. IMO

A horse is measured by hands and can vary by the size of ones hand.
So would ones weight vary by the size stones he has?
I have an ongoing problem with kidney stones would that make any difference in what I weigh?

Model28:
I suppose that would depend on the size of your stones and whether you were weighed before or after passing them.

I have the 22g Sliders and I love them. I weigh 17 stone and live over a mile above sea level, so I need all the extra boost I can get. I have had them in for more than 6,000 miles and have averaged 51 to 54 mpg with a lot of WOT accelleration. I don't seem to have any issue with too high rpms, because at 70 mph the engine is turning right at 5,000 rpms.

5000rpm @ 70mph is what I'm getting with the stock Honda rollers

I thought the sliders were supposed to reduce the RPM by about 500 rpm at that speed

JeffR, I beg your pardon! Americans gave the English the English Language, Forget not, that George Washington was English. However, I am an old Englishman and was educated in the fifties, when we had imperial measurements We weighed in ounces 16 to the pound. and it was 14pounds to 1 stone. I think it was then14 stones to 1 hundred weight and 20hundred weight to the ton, simple! And our scales do measure weight by stones. Only the dreaded European Union forces us to use grms and litres and such.I still measure in feet and inches and yards. Now our money has to be metric, the rest of the world can work it out easily, but , when we had: 4 farthing to a penny. a three penny bit.A sixpence peice. A Shilling. A half crown.A florin(2 Shillnig peice).A Ten bob note.And a pound. And there were 240 pennies in a pound.OH i forgot the Soveriegn and the guinea. life was much easier(well it was for me). Laughing

Surly:
If I remember correctly, before I put on the sliders the engine was turning about 5,000 rpm at a speed of about 60 mph, so this was a pretty good improvement for me.

Also , my V belt is really bad & needs replacing after 25000 km. What is the best belt to get ? I hear a lot of talk about the Jcosta .. any clues ?

Peter...
I would just get the OEM replacement belt. I don't think it is worth spending a lot more money for some special belt. Other people may have a different opinion about that. As far as the J Costa variator is concerned, I had one on my first Swing. It really improved the acceleration and smoothed out the CVT. However the down side is that my gas mileage went from the low 50's to the low 40's and the metal faces of the spools wore out within about 16,000 miles and needed to be replaced, so I switched to the 22 g Dr. Pulley Sliders. I am pleased with the result.

Hey Old Limey,

Now I am confused....is that system above based on a certain number system? Like our money system is base 10 but the system you mention doesn't really seem to be based on anything. Kind of like our teaspoon to tablespoon, or cups to a pint or quart or gallon.

Holy crow, what happened to my thread?? Laughing

Anyways, loving the 22g sliders. Last 2 tanks were 42/44 mpg, so lost a bit, but I won't change back, that acceleration is way too impressive. And way right on the vibration, I have none anymore, and yes, the acceleration is SOOOOO smooth.

As for the magnet, it is super strong, but had it on my Yamaha with no ill effects (my buddy has it now, and no problems). And it's nice at night to roll up to a light, get detected, and the light change so you can continue on. I've sat through up to 3 cycles of a light after midnight in a left turn lane with arrow without the sensor.

Hi All,
After reading the RPM comparisons that have been mentioned, I got just a little curious and took a quick drive to see what I have. Hadn't been on the bike for a some time so warmed it up in the garage on the center stand.

As another point of curiosity I checked the RPM's while on the stand and came up with:

5500 @ 70 mph; 5000 @ 65; 4700 @ 60; 4500 @ 57; and 4000 @ 51.

Kinda' wondered if riding the bike with the added weight and road friction would make much difference so headed on out.

Road readings were:

5500 @ 70; 5100 @ 65; 4700 @ 60; and 4000 @ 50.

So the added parameters made little or no difference which I surprised me a bit but guess it stands to reason. After the comparison and reading all the comments on this subject I do believe I'll get off my lazy duff and order some of the Pulley sliders; perhaps the 26's.

For JeffR Our monetery system was based on confusing the rest of the world, and it worked, till some idiot(Edward Heath) joined what was then The Common Market. If you can't work it out neither could anyone else(except us). As for liquid we had quarter pint. half pint. pint. Eight pints to the Gallon. When some one on this site said they topped up thier oil with two cups, i thought what strange people using cups to top up oil. I had no idea it was a measuremet. We just had William Shatner hosting one of our quiz programmes on TV, it was the funniest show on TV for ages, his pronunciation of our language had us crying with laughter. Smile By the way when i first went to the USA i was confused, as all your dollars where the same size and the same colour

Did you get confused by their gravy, that's the wrong colour too.
