Hello and welcome! Smile

Most questions are not stupid; it's not asking them that's stupid.
It does help if you search for answers here first, though. Wink

I'm in Salisbury, Wiltshire, 15 minutes' brisk ride from Stonehenge; where are you?

Hi mettalic.
I just picked up my new/old Swing two days ago (2013 with 0.2 miles). I'm spending most of my time riding. Love the scooter and have found this great and gigantic forum a big help with information and ideas.

Got new brake pads /front disc Monday. It stops properly now Smile it's going in Monday coming for a new belt and rollers and stuff. It's had a full service too. Good to go properly again.

I'm in Chatham Kent, hopefully I will be gaining a FJS600 soon and doing a big service on it myself, watched the videos on it, so with over 50 years of biking behind me, I'm looking forward to it.
What tyres do you think suit it best?
Hopefully some friends in my local Honda Owners club will sample a Maxi-scoot at its best and give them houseroom.

Welcome from Nova Scotia. May you have many happy miles on the S'Wing

They say there are no stupid questions ..... I have proved that to not be true. Even my answers can generally be considered stupid. We all learn from questions, stupid or not.

I've got Michelin tyres now. When I got it out had Arrow (i think) tyres. They were horrible!! I got really worried about my slow roundabout speeds and bad cornering. One of my tyres got a bit low, so i took the opportunity to get new tyres.

My x9 is rideable... Just... Its a poor rescue. It's mechanically fairly sound (needs new spark plugs) but cosmetically shot!
