I absolutely love it, I’m actually selling my Harley Electraglide to customize it. What would everyone recommend? I would like to do exhaust, Bluetooth stereo, and trunk at least. Would love recommendations! Would also love other ideas! I got a brand new looking 2005 Silverwing with less than 2700 miles for $3k that had a tune up from a Honda dealership last fall. Thing looks new and a blast to ride, I’m real excited!

If it's changes you want, have a look at Delray & DennisB albums. For the exhaust, please consider a Delkevic.

Don't go crazy yet just for the sake of doing mods.

Get to know the machine first by using it as much as you can, not just for recreation.

Then you'll know what might be useful to you.

Welcome and sounds like you got a nice SWing. I agree with Donie, ride the beast around a bit then decide on mods. After getting to know mine I scrapped some mods that I didn't feel were necessary.  Good luck.

Hello MPLS612. Welcome to the forum.

The most popular upgrades on the Silverwing are functional rather than cosmetic —adding a Givi top case and changing the pathetic OEM windscreen to and adjustable-height Givi AF214 screen. Then, as Mighty Mouse says, you could change the exhaust to a Delkevic or something similar. If you fancy tweaking the “transmission” there are several excellent Dr Pulley products; changing to sliding weights for the variator and upgrading the clutch assembly to a HiT Clutch to eliminate slipping. There are also Malossi and Polini products available to tweak performance.

Whatever you do please don’t get sucked into the aftermarket “kevlar belt” scam. Stay with the Honda belt when it comes time for a replacement - which has kevlar in it anyway.

Hang around for awhile. Lots of interesting stuff here. Nice folks too.*

Welcome aboard the board! Good advice above ... ride it for a while, get the feel of it and then tailor to your tastes.

My priorities for mods are always 1) safety/performance 2) comfort/utility and 3) cosmetic. I never seem to get around to the cosmetic though.

Welcome aboard from another 05 owner in o-HI-o, with the exception of a Givi screen it's bone stock and it's staying that way for me.

Welcome, Buckeye. Mom's side of the family is from way up in the far NW corner, Defiance County. Bryan, Hicksville, Montpelier, etc. Couple of the fellas got me wanting to research the exhaust cans now, LOL.
