I recently bought a 2004 Swing. I have ordered from the Dr. Pulley promotional offer and when it arrives I will have some other work done as well. I am not riding it much now because it needs new tires; the rear doesn't have much wear but age is still an issue. The front is the original tire made in 2003.
This is my second scooter as I bought a Piaggio MP3 500 new in 2009 and I've had quite a few motorcycles.
Well that is enough for now.

Hi. Hope you enjoy the bike. Regarding new tyres, I found some new ones the other day, given that they're perfect sizes, I'd wager they were designed with the Swing in mind. Trying to find a link. Damn my internet is slow tonight. Wife's probably downloading something. Or streaming :/
They're a modern profile, and DUAL COMPOUND! Pretty rare in our sizes. Rear feels great. My old tyre squared off pretty quick (5k miles?). Haven't fitted the front, planning to stick a winter use tyre on there to get better grip in the cold and wet.
Got it. Diablo Rosso Scooter. I also run the normal Diablo Scooters on my Kwak GPX250 (aka Ninja 250) and they are EPIC. And I mean it. When I'm on that little baby I'm not shifting below 13k at all!
