Thanks for the update I think I will try 16 gram sliders after new tires. Buying a used bike takes a lot of work to make it feel like your bike.

The 16 gram sliders will go a long way towards making it feel like your own.

Thanks to @stig and @E.D. for guiding me before setup
So as @E.D. said, 16 grams is too different than stock, but maaan, it's so good when you're 2-up!

I've recorded short video for you, guys. Please watch @FullHD. Sorry for quality, it was recorded on iPhone by my passenger!

The Dr is IN!

I installed Dr pulleys I got from CliffK with my new variator and clutch, and went for a short ride. The comparison to the original rollers is pretty dramatic- the new sliders are half 16 gram and half 18 gram. The lugging at low speed is gone- the revs come up nicely to 4000+ while accelerating. With the original rollers, the revs were below 3500 at 35 and the bike would chug. The acceleration is markedly better. With the installed sliders, the high speed RPM didn't change much from the rollers- 5000 at steady 50, 6000 at steady 60, etc. But when I twist the throttle, the RPM's increase even at 55- which means that there is still some variation in the variator; still some effective "downshifting" for passing.

I'm a believer. If they don't flip, then I'll be a true believer.

After eight years I finally clicked past 18k and did some long overdue maintenance, including replacing the rollers WITH 18g sliders and the belt (and final drive oil...) My neglected 2007 is rewarding the effort, but dang was that a pain without the proper tools. Also, actually having the pipe connector makes it sound like a scooter again. Enjoy the solstice!

There are no hills in this area, but there are areas where the road is slightly inclined, Going up an incline, I might only do about 90+ mph, going down an incline I might break 105 mph. So 100mph might be a good average. Note that I am riding behind a Givi Windscreen that cuts the wind well and gives me no turbulence behind it & I am also sporting a Bestem 929 Top Box on the back.
When I install the Top Box on the back of the bike last month, I thought it would slow me down, but it does not.
And about the sliders, I have not lost faith in them, I ran them for 2 years with no problem, so this was the first time I had a problem with them. Their benefits are so good, that they are well worth while to me, as long as they don't flip often. Time will tell how they do. As I said, I will keep you posted.
Another important point: The job of getting into my CVT is made a lot easier by the fact that I cut out a small portion of the left lower leg shield, making it possible for me to pull the CVT cover without having to remove or touch the lower leg shield. It makes getting into the CVT easier and quicker. I cut it neatly and it looks nice, no one even notices it. I can post a picture of it if anyone is interested.
E.D.

I'd be interested in the picture of the cut out.
Thanks.

Here's the pics of the cut out. I took these at night with the flash.

It is giving me a hard time, says I have exceeded my quota of pics, Come on fellas, can't you get a bigger hard drive on that server or connect it to the cloud?

I guess I will have to delete some of my other pics. I had to delete 2 pics of my firefly transmitter garage door opener. If you want to see those, your'e out of luck.

I've got one in, I'll have to go back and delete another of my existing pics. I had to delete the pic of the MOSFET Rectifier Circuit. I don't think anybody will miss that.

Oh, Thank God, I got them in, 2 pics, a close up and one a little farther away.

Here you go.

Set up a photobucket account and post that way. lot more work, but your limits in photobucket are much higher and will not affect this site.
