Hey there, th124. I think you went right by the intro section where you tell us a bit about yourself and your SWing. Looking forward to that !

Jay.

I had the J. Costa for the SWing I had and loved it. The only problem was that I had to change the pins every 8,000 miles. I thought it smoothed it out, even though the SWing is a very smooth bike, and also lowered the rpm's when I was at interstate speed. If the pins lasted 12,000 miles or so I would have never taken it off. Tell us how you like it.

Hi there, I live in London and have just exchanged a 2003 SWing for a 2007 because we will soon have an Ultra Low Emission Zone in Central London which means you can't drive anything made before 2007 in Central London.

I've put the J Costa variator in the 2007 and it's fantastic. I haven't measured it but any burst of acceleration from 5mph to 70mph feels much faster and particularly in the primary city driving zones of 20mph - 50mph it's like a rocket compared to before the new variator. Highly recommend!
