I would appreciate if you could post your RPM VS Speeds chart in this discussion thread, instead of simply referencing it, making us have to go search for it. Or you could put a link to the RPM VS Speeds, in your post. Thanks.
Guess I figured if important enough -- folks would look it up.
That said, I had a heck of a time finding it -- finally did by using the GOOGLE Search Box.
Here is link I had when I found the topic.
Test Ride new CVT Belt and Sliders (from recent install post)
Copied and Pasted from the above link. (Say again -- 19GM Sliders and new belt put in at same time) .
Burgman Acceleration and Speed test Today (Sunday) at 39F Degrees:
Some Opinions & some Facts (The MPH vs RPM Pictures are Fact, rest are Opinions).
Low speed acceleration Zero MPH up to 60MPH is better than before the new Belt and using Sliders vs Rollers gives lower gearing as advertiswed by DR Pulley. I am pretty sure, but not precise measurments now and none before -- I counted 1001, 1002, 1003, etc. -- I say around 7 seconds, could be 8 seconds to 65MPH INDICATED - I did it three times at Full Throttle (Car Tire on Rear take 7% off indicated to get actual). As I said - Lower gearing as advertised by Dr Pulley.
Higher speed acceleration from 50 or 60 MPH up to 70 MPH INDICATED is plenty satisfactory. From 70 MPH to 80 or 90 MPH takes a little while, don't try passing in a short distance. I think about like it was before Belt and Slider replaced the Rollers. Maybe a bit less acceleration based on fact higher speeds give higher gearing as advertised by Dr Pulley. Not a Burgman 650, but adequate.
Top speed is not much over 95 MPH INDICATED (Car Tire on Rear take 7% off indicated to get actual). It takes some time to get from 75 to 95 MPH INDICATED. I think that is about the same as before. However, before I could hit red line of 9000 RPM before, I don't think it will now (probably due to higher gearing with the Sliders vs rollers). Higher gearing at high speed as advertised by Dr Pulley
Facts: NOTE: Pictures of dash do not show here on this Copy and Paste, they do show if you call up the topic using the link above.
Dash RPM and MPH pictures pretty well show how MPH and RPMs are related under full throttle acceleration. NOTE: As I said before, I don't think the Scooter will REV to 9000 RPM (Red Line) anymore. I guess the Sliders are producing higher gearing - obvious in that the RPM are lower at each speed over 50 MPH than they use to be.
Start at 50 MPH at 5000 RPM and go Full Throttle. No picturre I noted RPM jumps to 6000 / 6200 RPM pretty quickly and then falls back a little before building up again.
Picture 1 65 MPH at 5600 RPM
Picture 2 73 MPH at 6100 RPM
Picture 3 80 MPH at 7250 RPM
Picture 4 95 MPH at 7700 RPM (ran out of road, but I think that was about all the Ol Gal would do)
