I studied and studied this forum looking for 'known issues' before stepping up and buying, and discovered none
Then I bought
Then I discovered the Swing's 1 glaring issue
A lack of issues makes for a slower moving forum without much chatter :lol!:

That's why you have to spend your time searching through the archives! I particularly like the "Accessories and Mods" section.

As long time SilverWing Rider---2 new ones, I see at least two issues.

#1 not made anymore for at least for US market


#2 Buffeting of rider---true for all/most Maxi-scooters ---bought nine new ones.
SilverWing buffeting solved at least within reason with GIVI Adjustable Windshields.

Other than belt changes, SilverWings have served me well for over 75,000 miles

Silver Wing a great scooter but the OEM windshield less than great. My current bike's windscreen works as well as the Givi adjustable did on the SW. Except I can't loose the top part. Just gotta press the button to adjust it.

I like the screen a heck of a lot better than not having one, riding a screenless cruiser at 70 will give yo a better appreciation of how much this screen does protect you Laughing
and yes it's sad that us Muricans don't appreciate maxi scooters
We don't much care for Standards, either

Some of us do like Standards. My last naked bike was a 1980 GL1100 Goldwing Standard. I did cheat a bit with a small windshield. Surprising how much quicker and more nimble a GW is without a fairing.

You can create your own issue Like I did. I had an oil leak this winter, I bought a can of leak stopper, when I was warming up my Swing to change the oil and add the leak stopper I found out my leak was coming out of my dipstick hole. I had stripped the threads and so I wasn't getting a seal anymore. Took the leak stopper back and bought a new dipstick.
