Changing the rollers

I just bought an Aprilia Scarabeo 200, that has sliders installed instead of rollers. The performance is not the same as my other Scarabeo 200, which has the stock rollers.

I have a set of stock rollers, but I'm not sure which way they go into the variator. I've never taken my variator out on my 200, and right now it's in the shop for other work, so I can't look at it.

The stock rollers have 2 distinct sides. One has the coating covering most of it, the other is mostly metal. If I'm looking at the variator, where the rollers go, and looking at the one in the 6 O'clock position let's say, would the covered side face left or right?

Thanks!!

As the variator turns, the more open side will be traveling forward. The side with more nylon will be the back.

Just to elaborate on this, looking at the back of the variator where your ramps and rollers are, your variator spins clockwise. The top rollers will have the nylon butted end to the left and the open end where the weight is pressed in to the right.

Make them all follow the same direction.
