 Post subject: PCX 125 rollers
PostPosted: Thu Nov 08, 2012 7:42 am 
Just in case anyone is wondering.

OEM Roller weights for the PCX 125 are 20x15 and are 14.8 grams.

Any Suggestions on a starting point for tuning?

I am thinking 12g

====================
Read on for the story:

During recent maintenance to my step-son's PCX 125 we changed his rollers out for another set of oem rollers.

He already had 19,xxx miles on his PCX that he bought new in FEBRUARY THIS YEAR. He was on all original EVERYTHING but tires.

I had no idea he had racked up so many miles on his drive belt, rollers, air filter, spark plug... and a set of rollers is only $6 so i ordered a set.

Turns out his rollers were still in really good shape (certainly considering the age) I have seen much worse GET rollers after 2,000 miles.

I couldn't find my caliper or gram scale before we worked on the bike but have found them now.

OEM Roller weights for the PCX 125 are 20x15 and are 14.8 grams.

I am going to lighten the old ones with my Dremel and swap them back in.

Any Suggestions on a starting point for tuning?

I am thinking 12g

well it may lower top speed but try 13 first i have found you can usually go 10-15% lighter from factory without losing top end. Something to look at is also do a marker test to see how far out the belt is moving.

Could you tell me if there is a limiter in the vario so the weights cant go all the way out? if thats the case you might be able to go even lighter because you dont need to reach the same distance.
