I'm confused. You had 5.9 gm rollers, and when you went to 5.5 gms, you lost top speed, so you ordered even lighter 5.0 gm rollers?? What was your reasoning there?

Well just swapped to 5.0g sliders, gates Kevlar belt, and blue clutch spring. Time to take it out for a test ride. My new impact wrench made it soooo much easier!

Reasoning was I lost top end from not having any power to keep gaining speed. Not from running out of rpm. The 5.5 sliders sucked at 7500 rpm. For whatever reason they had no power. So I did the belt and clutch spring. Wow what a difference. The 5.0g sliders were wayyyy too light. 35 mph was 8500 rpms. Swapped back in the 5.6g rollers that I thought were 5.9 and I'm back up to speed. My low end is awesome and I'm pulling up hills. Only problem is 45 mph is like 9200rpm. I don't know if that's what everyone else sees or if that is too high of rpm. Didn't have enough flats on my way into work to see what I could hit and there was a 20-30mph cross wind.

I hope you used a torque wrench when you re-installed! (24 ft-lbs for variator/drive face; 29 for clutch)

Yeah, I thought 5.0 gm would be too light given what you were describing. Glad you got your speed back!

I thought 5gram would be too light with a more aggressive spring. it worked good but I ended up using 4.5gram and settling there. the rpms were high enough to throw the light weights high enough for me to tickle the 70s.

yep I use a torque wrench too. Just need a non windy day and a long enough stretch to see what I can end up top end.

Well a little update I got it running like a champ. Rollers work better than sliders for me. I did take the cdi off and went back to stock so I'm hitting the rev limiter at 43 mph but man is it fast to there! Might throw it back on soon. I also attempted to make my own custom seat cover. It looks ok but the vinyl I used is marine grade and I couldn't stretch it enough to get the seems sewn the way I wanted.
