I spent quite a lot of time reading through the internet trying to find out about the different ways that different weights of sliders work.
Sadly most people who have fitted them just say they are brilliant and go faster, especially from a standstill!
Could people who have them please try to give a better discription of how their particular weight of slider s work.
From everything I read it would seem that the lighter slider is thrown out more slowly on initial acceleraton and so uses higher engine revs to pull away and the heavier the slider would be flung out much quicker and would use lower revs! Evidently there are far more variables to be included that I dont quite understand yet.
I eventually decided to use 25gm weights, most of my riding tends to be in the city and the main area i wanted to improve was 30 to 50 acceleration.
This is what after limited miles I have noticed so far.
0 to 5 mph very little difference till the clutch locks up.
5 to 30 seems to pull harder.
30 to 60 is a lot more lively.
60 to 80 is a little better
and it seems to go up to the same sort of top speed as before I put the sliders in with lower revs.
I didnt get enough free road to test exact speeds and revs and I also didnt have my sat nav on for accurate speeds. I also have no idea yet on how my fuel economy will have changed.
I am going to take a longer trip two up from Birmingham to Aberystwyth and back tomorrow to get a better idea of performance and will post what I find.

I don't have much, if any, technical knowledge with the Dr. Sliders except that I put on a set of 26 Grams along with a new belt change this past winter.

While it may be all in my head I have noticed more "get up and go" on take off. It does seem a bit more snappy. At highway speeds I think the rpms have come down a couple hundred or so.

Last summer I hadn't thought of putting in sliders. I decided on it this winter so I didn't go and check on the rpms at various speeds to compare it to once the sliders were installed. And I'm sort of kicking myself for not doing that if for nothing more than my knowledge.

All in all I'm happy with them. I do know that last summer it got up to 95 mph pretty quick and this summer it got up just over 100 mph in about the same time. Although I will never admit to going that fast but that darned speedometer did just jump up to that speed by itself. I had nothing to do with it. LOL

I just installed 26g sliders and new belt 2 days ago. Comparing rpm with stock rollers I was hitting 6500 rpm before at 80mph and am now down to 5800. My old belt appears to have gone 23k as I just bought the bike and appears to have only had one belt change. Acceleration is brisker than before and can still easily get to 100.  Having had a Reflex before, my SW feels like a Reflex on steroids. Mine is bloody fast and this comes from a guy who also rides a Honda 919. My need for speed is easily met with the SW as I've decided it's really all I need now. Tonight my 919 and Burgman 650 go up for sale on CL. My SW is going to replace all the others.
