I just noticed this season that I'm starting to creep over the 1000 rpm to 10 mph thing. Instead of being at 6000 RPMs (or below) at 60 mph, I'm about 6200 RPMs, and I'm at about 7200 RPMs at 70 mph. I know my stock rollers are hexagon shape, so I'm thinking that is the problem more then the belt, but next time I open it up I will measure it up to be sure.

They were round on my 08. Haven't seen hexagon rollers.

Replace your rollers with Dr Pulley sliders next time you open the CVT up and you'll never need to worry about flat spots again. Mike how many miles do you have on your scooter?

1984 Honda Aero NH80, 2007 E-TON PN-2G 50cc, 2007 Yamaha Morphous CP250W, 2008 Honda Silver Wing FSC600D, 2007 Honda Silver Wing FSC600A and I sold my 2009 Q-Link Commuter CM250, 2005 Suzuki Burgman AN400S and my 1986 Honda Elite CH250.

LOL. I had changed my OEM rollers to 18g DPS at 1st which I found ok (quicker take offs but reduced top end) but finally settled on 19g DPS which gave me the best of both worlds. I was able to obtain 73mpg on more than one occasion with the 19's.

I have 14,000 miles on mine.
I ride two-up a lot, 180+130 lbs, what DPS weight do you recommend?

I posted on here complete speed vs RPM with Dr Pulley Sliders (19GM).

Amazing difference and now get 66 plus MPG.

Go find the link and pictures of dash at speeds - plus link on look of sliders and old rollers (flat spots) and dust in variator.

But, I would not change it at 14K Miles (I was like 23K Miles). Get use of what you have now and then change it.

6K RPM at 65 mph on my 400. Below 50 mph the RPM typically exceeds the mph for me, which make sense when one is accelerating up to speed.
