Based on what I read online I went ahead and got some DP 26g weights, and I put those in last week. I had my first ride with them today and all I can say is WOW. These have transformed the Swing from swift to actually pretty fast, especially in the 60-80km/hr range. I had been riding my ST1300 for a 500km ride most of the day before the Swing testride, and was pleasantly surprised with how nippy the Swing now feels. Good stuff!

Hello Terry. I had a beautiful Red ST 1100. I also replaced my DP weights I believe 24oz. ?
Years ago and honestly, I sold it because it was not as fun around town and even more fun than my ST on the road. There are only two things in my mind that would make this scooter(motorcycle) the best in the world.
Number 1, the little tires and 2 going around mountains roads downhill without the drag and help of gears. I suppose I could buy a Burghman 650 with the push button downshift but would still have the tire issue. Oh well.

I've had the pleasure of owning both the 1100 and now the 1300. The 1100 I bought as a "do-up" project, not my normal style of bike (preferring sportier toys) but I was also keen to find out if a more relaxed ride position would help my bad wrists and keep me riding longer. It had been barn-stored for 10 years and was in a sorry state, but I worked my way throught the carbs, tank, cooling system, brakes, tyres and suspension and ended up with a fantastic runner that I kept for 40,000km and sold for nearly 3x what I paid for it.

Last year I decided to upgrade to the 1300, hoping it would be the best of both worlds, the comfort of the 1100 but in more sporting clothes, and I've not been disappointed. The 1300 had already had a good suspension makeover so all I've done is tweak that and add tyres. It's an incredible handler on fast country roads, and all-day (or all-week) comfy, my best day so far was 1200km of twisty roads, only stopping for fuel.

The 1100 was certainly more of a calm, gentlemanly machine than the 1300, but the 1300 is a much tidier bike when the going gets twisty.

My Silverwing is another do-up project and I've already rebult the suspension (15W oil and an extra 8mm preload, new seals and bushings up front, and Hagon shocks at the rear) and brakes and just replaced the belt and the roller weights, but I'm limited to 20 minute rides as the alternator is dead so I can only ride for as long as the battery holds up. COVID hold-ups have meant the alternator ordered in March got returned to the shipper in June, and my new alternator is still on the water/air...

This is where I've got up to with my scooter. I've been working hard on aesthetics and had to rebuild most of the fairing mounting tabs (which had been smashed off, then the panels refitted with silicone sealer!), fit a new screen, new mirrors, replace some awful low bars with the correct ones and the shroud, repaint the forks, wheels and swingarm, replace the muffler trim, repaint the grab rail and pillion peg mounts, and recover the seat. I had to buy a new rear fender as the old one was...missing. Not sure how/why that would happen.

Along the way I've repaired the switchpod mounts and brake microswitches too. Once I'm happy with the engine I will be doing a repaint of the bodywork. I've also put LED headlights and taillights in, which has helped the battery life in my constant loss electrical system...Next up is some new tyres which I'm expecting will make it feel like a whole new bike again, always amazing what a difference that makes.

I like the screen, much neater than the standard barn door affair.

That is an MRA-R in light smoke; my bike never had the stock screen so I can't say whether it is better or worse than that. Certainly a nicely finished part however.
