Well, I'm at it again. The sliders are chewed to bits and need replacing. I'm getting the variatior situation fixed, so it's really which do I want to try. I had read on another burgman site that just by using a round roller of 21 gram, he was able to get the rpm down to 6000 at 75. Is this info correct? Or is the slider the only one that can do that because of the shape? Also, I'm replacing the belt this time, and was wondering where you all find the cheapest price for a quality belt. Either oem, gates, or after market. Thanks for putting up with me with all the slider talk. I know I'm probably beating it to death, but I'm determined to make them work! Haha. Thanks for all the help.
