As I too have a DT, and it does have 30+horses from a 300cc. I'm interested in the same question as Cortez, one that nobody seems to have an answer to. Is the rpm always higher under stable cruising speed?
I also respectfully disagree with those who think the sliders do nothing, or next to it. I have the 14gr Dr. Pulley's. On my bike, they unequivocally make a marked difference. The bike is better in all aspects of acceleration and better top end cruising. Meaning, it has faster acceleration, more smooth cruising at +70mph and I haven't noticed a decrease in performance in the top end. Slightly higher around town rpm, but haven't noticed much in mpg hits.
