I linked this in on the Mantainance Procedures page under see also. not sure where else to link it.

was also playing with resorting the info to group models that use the same roller. That would allow including after market as well. was thinking of sorting it by width, then diameter, then weight.

That's extremely helpful Patrick, thumbs up. Maintenance procedures seems to be the most logical place to link it from.

Do we have a "reference" page? Seems like there are a few pages that could be linked from a central reference page if we had one.

We should add a column for minimum diameters. On the BV 500 it is 24.5mm

Another one to add - Beedpseed advise standard roller spec for my GTV125 is 19mm x 17mm x 7.4g.

Edited to add... I guess the GTS125 is ditto.

Best,

Mark

The first time I changed my rollers on my GTS 125 2010 (Bought pre owned) i used the stock weights listed above. What is real funny is since then it revs so much higher then it used to... almost too much and my fuel economy went down by about 10-15% (I didn't pay attention to the ones I removed stupidly). I since replaced them (at the following normal service interval) with 8.5g weights and it felt much more balanced with a lower rpm while cruising at 40-50mph.

Have you had, or heard of any such experiences that stock weights are too light? (I apologise if I sound like a complete idiot, haha I probably am)

Perhaps to do with rider weight/riding style maybe?
