Just some advice please;

Next week I'm collecting a 2007 model Silverwing and wondering is there a possibility of adjusting the rider seats backrest position? I've read somewhere that you lift the seat up and underneath there are two bolts which you need to remove to move back/forwards regarding the backrest adjustment to suit you.....is this how you adjust it....?

Are the two bolts under the seat allen bolts etc..?

Thanks in advance, any advice/knowledge appreciated.

Sadly most Silver Wings come with the backrest adjusted back as far as it will go. If that is your problem (needs to be adjusted back) it probably won't happen. This is usually an issue for people 6"0" or taller. A custom seat is an option (but very spendy) or you can get one of these:

I have used one for years and it gives me enough room at 6"0". I believe several people have used them and they are EASY to install.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
