First topic message reminder :

After talking to folks here, I installed some 26g Dr. Pulley sliders and I love now being able to pull ahead of traffic at stoplights.  But for some reason - and I think it started before I installed the sliders - the belt is rubbing on the side of the belt housing sometimes.  I can hear it - it has a distinctive sound.  

It is a new belt - about a year old now (5,000 miles?).  The one caveat is that I initially put it on backward!!  After a few days I realized I forgot to check the direction of the arrows and when I opened it up, I sure had put it on backward.  Does this stretch a belt so that it will rub?

I guess maybe I also got a bad belt.  Is there some recommended belt other than the OEM belt?  I want to put on 24g sliders.  I don't do much freeway driving, maybe twice a month for 20 - 40 miles.  The rest of the time I'm trying to stay ahead of traffic at stoplights.  Before putting in the 26g sliders, if I opened the throttle too fast, the friction clutch seemed to "skate" rather than hook up right away.

Anyway, my main problem is the belt rub.  Here's a pic of the inside of the case...

(maybe this worked...)

Thanks Cosmic. I had heard of the Power Commander before but honestly never knew what it did. Embarassed After reading the description on their site it looks like it's just the thing. I'll have to start saving up! Smile

Were 2007 silver wings sourced/constructed anywhere else than Japan?

Just saw this - you can find out where your Swing was made by looking at the VIN. If it starts with J, it's final assembly was in Japan.
