Dr. pulley sliders, there the heck to buy?

Postby thestructured » Tue Dec 22, 2009 1:10 am

I've been browsing for an hour and can't find the right weight or price. the OEM size is 24x18 and 23.2 grams. Anybody know where I can find 23 gram sliders? Hell, I'll settle for 22 grams or 24 grams if they aren't priced at 75 bucks!

You can find Dr. Pulley sliders for about $45 at www.scootertrap.com. A great place for OEM parts can be found at DGY.com. I purchased original Honda rollers for about $15.

I got my stock Honda rollers at my local Honda dealer for around $18.00. No shipping charge. :D

Honda rollers

Postby HandKPhil » Fri Dec 25, 2009 11:56 pm

I also bought a new set of stock Honda roller weights for my Helix. I ordered them a couple of days ago, and I think they were $21.00

I'm going to try them out prior to the Dr. Sliders, even though I just installed the Dr. Pulley sliders in my Elite, and am quite happy with them. I just want to try the rollers and sliders both, and see if there's a dramatic difference in performance.

New variator

Postby HandKPhil » Sat Dec 26, 2009 9:35 am

I've heard of people having really good results with the complete variators. You'll have to let us know how it works compared to stock. If the complete variator is anywhere near as nice as their sliders just by themselves, you should have one fast, smooth ride!

almost had a dr. pulley HIT clutch too. There was one on ebay that sold for 27 dollars! however, the auction was mislabeled after i checked the part number. It was for a CF250 not a CN250. Strange that the clutch size would be different in a cloned cn250 engine, but the bell size and clutch are about 2 centimeters larger in the CF250.

The Dr pulley clutch is bigger than stock. The CF250 Clone and the CN250 will take the same clutch. That clutch would have worked wonderful on your Helix. It will also fits under the belt housing great. The size of the bell housing does't make any difference as long as you have the right clutch matched to it. The Clones do have two different size clutches that they were shipped with but either will fit the Helix. So will the DR pulley clutch made for the CF250. Most High performance Clutches are going to be BIGGER yet lighter than stock

I checked the Dr. Pulley website, and they have a chart. The CF250 cluts and CN250 clutch were two different part numbers, and websites that sold both had stated in BOLD that the CF250 clutch will NOT fit the cn250

Need some help really in a bad way. Since you have installed them before what happens when they are not in correctly? My helix struggles to go 35 mph after they were put in. If in wrong what damage could it do and how long would it take to damage something? The guy had it a month and still hasn't gotten it right. He told me that I can depend on him in getting it right but it hasn't happened. I need something to show him that they are not in right. Thanks for any and all help. It is really needed. Thanks so much.

Can't understand what you are trying to say. I need help in installing them the correct way and what happens when they go in wrong.

Could a Helix reach 35 if there were no sliders or rollers in the variator?
I can't think of a way to check it that doesn't involve a lot of risk.
Are you wanting to install them yourself at this point?
