PostSubject: Silver Winger from Maine   Sat Sep 03, 2016 8:20 pm

When I moved to Maine in 2005 I decided to get my motorcycle license and started with a Honda Reflex and then graduated to a Silver Wing.

I love my Silver wing and my dog Daisy and I go for rides all the time.

I found this site by looking for how to shut off the V light.
Thanks for all the great info!

Welcome, Jean. I am just up the road from you in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.
Hope you found the instructions to shut off the V light. I changed my belt before the light came on, and I am just waiting for it to come on, then I'll be looking for the same info.
Lots of good people here and their combined knowledge of the SWing is more than any manual can hold.
Jay.

Welcome JeanC

My wife still rides a Reflex and I have a Silverwing. Both scooters have their strengths and weaknesses.

You can toss the Reflex with it's shorter wheelbase around at slow speeds so much easier but the stretched Silverwing has greater stability at higher speeds. The Reflex acceleration is pretty weak above 60 whereas the Swing is just getting it's legs at that speed. Mileage is about 65 mpg for the Reflex and 50 for the Swing. The Reflex weighs in about 350 lbs and the Swing is about 500 lbs. The Reflex has a carburetor so starting is not always just a quick touch of the starter and there is some hesitation when cold unlike the Swing that is willing from the instant you touch the starter. Both scooters are trouble-free, will last a very long time and unfortunately are no longer produced.

You will find good people here and information on anything Silverwing.

Welcome again and I hope that you enjoy many miles of enjoyment with Daisy.

Hi Jean and welcome to the forum.
Sounds like you have two good riding mates - bike and dog!

Hope you continue to enjoy your Silverwing and stay safe.

Welcome to the forum, Jean.

If you haven't already found that "V" light info, here's how; With the key OFF press & hold IN the two odometer buttons simultaneously; while holding the buttons IN turn ON the key; the "V" light will flash 5 times; release the buttons and turn the key OFF. It's that simple. You just need to insure that the buttons are ressed at the same time.

Welcome Jean,

I'm a bit farther up the road from Jay ... I'm near Halifax, Nova Scotia. A few years ago I stopped at a Tim Hortons in Berwick while on the way to Sunday River. Nice place - Berwick.

Welcome JeanC. I am just across the border from you in NH (Southwest corner) during the summer months. Spend a lot of time in SC in the winter.

Cosmic Jumper - thanks for the info on re-setting the V light, should I need to do that in the future.
