Hi. The first week of September I purchased a 2002 Swing from the second owner. It had 14,600 miles on it and a good maintenance record. I put new tires on it and a new drive belt (it was about time to change it). I had the oil changed and had a safety inspection done by a reputable Honda dealer. I've since put about 200 miles on it and really like the ride. The last time I rode was back in the early 1970s. The Swing is a nice re-introduction to riding. I followed this group for a couple of months before I bought the scooter and found the information invaluable. I'm glad I joined and hope I can contribute something useful.

welcome Kenjj50 welcome to the best Silverwing forum on the web. It sounds like you've found a scooter you can depend on.
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.

Maintenance, Tips and Hints
Maintenance "Pictorials"
Accessories-Modifications

Ps
I moved your introduction to its own topic so you know all the welcomes are for you. Cool

Kenjj50,

Welcome. I'm a recent Silverwing owner as well, purchasing mine used about the same time as you and moving up from a Reflex.

I'm located pretty close to you in Sugar Grove near Aurora, so if you are ever looking to ride "out west" I'm nearby and we can meet up or exchange scooter advice.  Just drop me a PM.

Safe riding!!! cheers
