Thank you, I intend to - also known for trying to hard - have just bought the Silverwing 400, a 2002 model with 18.00 k's on it imported used from Japan with the T switch I don't understand, I just love it after my PC800, also into older scooters to do up, just sold a 1962 Puch SR150 and still have, and ride, a 1062 Triumph Tigress 250 twin.

With a JDM model you might find this Silverwing Bikes Forum link to the FJS400 Tech Corner helpful. I do recall reading that some JDM models had a switch which "altered" the circuit of the ECU and probably changed the timing which, in turn, gave you more passing speed. There might be a wiring diagram on the forum. The above said, IIRC that switch was only used on 2001 & 2002 JDM or Asian models. Later FJS & FSC models evolved different ECUs which diminished the need for that switch.

Also there is a wealth of FJS 400 info on the Italian Silverwing forum (SWCI). Unfortunately it is al in Italian so you'll need Google to mangle a translation for you. Especially helpful YouTube videos of SWCI's Steven B walking you thru various mechanical tasks are out there too.

IIRC JDM models also had heavier variator roller weights which slowed accelleration and lowered fuel consumption. Could be that you have 30gm or higher weights in there now. 28gm roller weights are standard on FSC models. Many here have changed to Dr Pulley sliding weights for improved performance & smooth operation.
