PostSubject: Looking to buy a used SW with 60000 km?   Mon Sep 28, 2015 6:05 am

Hello to all:)

After 2 years of owning KLR 650 I sold it a month ago...just not confortable enough and painfull after 3h ride....My eye is set now on SW. I am 44 and I love the look of it...Found one not to far from me with 60000 km (about 37000 miles)...It is 2006 model...

My question is how good and reliable are these engines....what is a life spand of one and should I be woried or stay awy from purchasing it...I mean 60000 km a car is nothing,how about SW...

Thanks in advance advance to all

Cheers:)

It is a Honda....... any further questions? Laughing



In reality I guess it depends on the life it's had and the price.

Before my recent unpleasantness my '03 had over 97000 miles on the clock. Like Hot Wings said, "It's a Honda"

Alefone you could travel 2 hrs west and buy my black 2005 with 24800 klm's on the clock. New tires, new belt, new Givi windscreen, topbox, Garmin GPS, hitch and trailer for behind the bike. Plus a bunch of other gadgets and gizmos. All mint, always stored inside. $3000.

welcome Alefone welcome to the best Silverwing forum on the web. At $1,400 Cad I think it's a good deal that I would go for if I was looking for one.
I add the paragraph below for most new members because there's a lot of information in the links and may save you some money and work. You'll find you can do anything you need or want with the service manual and help from this forum.
Here are some links(3 below in blue)that will help you learn a lot about your Silverwing. If you can't find what you need in the links below the search on this forum works good, and if you still need help just ask and someone will do what they can to answer your questions.
