6800 RPMs @ 65 MPH minimum on mine. It's slowly creeping up in RPMs.

Is that at actual or indicated speed? The speedometers on these scoots typically indicate 10% higher than actual speed (so does my 2006 Silver Wing)...

It seems as if my rpm to mph ratio is higher than most, 7000 @ 65 mph indicated. Top speed 90 mph with the tach 200 into the red. I had the CVT cover off last week to clean the variator and clutch but I didn't measure the belt width because it has less than 8000 miles.

E.D. she sounds like she is working a bit hard. Remember, she is a short stroke motor designed to thrive on revs. Speaking from a purely technical viewpoint, for maximum accelerationyou'd be best with the engine at 7,300 to 7,500rpm where max power is. I appreciate you probably already know that and that's the way you want it, but just for folks who don't know these things I'm mentioning it. It makes a huge difference to how she goes. Your cruising revs are also a bit on the low side at 70mph and she will be lugging at times for sure. You'll find your mpg's will almost certainly improve a bit if you let her rev a bit more at cruise. Suzuki set them up at the factory to run at 6,500rpm at 70mph (indicated). Mine now runs at 7,000rpm at indicated 70mph as my belt is wearing. She gives me between 78-83mpg at that speed depending whether I'm going into the wind or have it behind me...with about 80mpg in neutral conditions. Remember we are talking about imperial gallons for us folks in the UK.(4.54litres).

Mech, that's probably right but can the speedo limit be reached with oem rollers on flat road -- i doubt that. The only change i experienced going from 18 to 16 g DPS was in the mid range, so i tend to think the best slider weight should be 13-14 g, and it complies with a recommended setup for the new Dr. Pulley variator.

New Machine 2017 650

I will be getting a ride down to my dealers in a week or two to pick up my new bike. I need to drive it about a 100 miles to get back home and will keep it at about 4 or 5k rpm as mentioned on here. Speed limit on I95 is 75 so will keep to the back roads.

Of course I'll read the book when I get home but being on here sure helps with lots of questions and answers. I have NO IDEA what Dr Pulley Sliders (19GM) are or what they do.

Also not sure what oil is used in it but was wondering what would be the best to use when I change it at 600 miles. Thanks

The 650 won't have sliders or rollers- its CVT works in an entirely different manner and shouldn't require any service.

Doesn't hurt to change the oil often, but if I recall correctly there are 3 different places to change the oil in the 650. Your owner's manual should tell you when and where and what type of oil better than us amateurs here on the forum ;>)

Take a quick look into the manual for break-in procedures before your ride, but I'm pretty sure you can exceed 5K rpm for short periods without damage in the first 600 miles. I think it's just sustained operation at high revs you want to avoid while breaking it in.
