hey folks, figured now is as good a time as any to move from lurker status to actually posting something. i've already used a lot of information i've gathered on here to work on my scooter ('06 a50), and i have to say it runs pretty killer right now.
my problem lies in the 8g dr pulley sliders i am currently using. i feel they may be a bit too heavy. i have great top end (40-45mph flat - 48-50mph downhill gps confirmed), but my uphill climbs are fairly unacceptable (less than 30mph, considering most of the roads i travel on have a 45mph limit).
my question is this... has anyone thought of or had any experience drilling out the brass centers of the weights and using a scale (accurate to 0.1g) to reduce the weight, rather than buy lighter sets? i'am thinking of drilling out 0.1g at a time and testing until i find a better balance of acceleration/top speed.
i'am open to any other suggestions, criticism, whatnot... just trying to squeak out a little more balance without spending any more money at the moment. thanks for any and all help!
