On my 2008 and 2010 Burgmans I changed the "Rollers" for Dr.Pulley sliders with great effect achieving better acceleration and lower rev's @ cruising speed. A friend at work is just about to buy a new 400 and wants to know what value DPS. to fit. I am fairly confident that it was 18g sliders that were fitted but not 100% sure an I would hate to mislead him. Could anyone with these fitted please confirm that my recollections are accurate.

Thanks.

Geoff.

Some folks have used 18gm sliders, others have used
19gm. sliders....stock OEM rollers are roughly 20gm.

18g will give you slightly better performance than the 19g weights. The difference will be hard to feel though as the CVT changes the "gearing" to the needs. The biggest difference you'll find is the rpms the bike runs at once you hit your cruising speed of @60 mph. The 19g weights on mine put the rpms at 5300 @ 70mph indicated. The 18g weights put the rpms at 5800 @ 70 mph indicated.

Both are great, and he won't go wrong with either.

+1 to what Chris said. I switched mine out to the 18g ones at just over 13k miles. Still had the same ones in it when I sold it at 46k+ miles :thumbup:

According to some they changed the final drive ratio in 2010 and my
2010 seems to bare this out always revving a bit higher than others
with earlier scoots report, having tried both 18 and 19 g sliders
I would go for 19g on later models.

I have 19 g. but would buy 20g. if I did it again. I don't climb mountains and am a cheapskate so would like to see 70 mpg on the dash display more often! :)
