Hey everyone out there I have owned a 2009 for 5 years and not riding much and when I got on it recently, it started fine and idled but going down the road it wouldn't accelerate as it should but if you let off it ran ok. I figured to drain the fuel and change a plug and put some seafoam or such in it and try again but I unscrewed the side panels and don't know how to pull them off without breaking the tabs. Please help getting them off and if you want call me at 903 530 8677. Much appreciated, I need to get out and ride this time of year especially!

Why not EZ 1st, buy a can of Sea Foam or Techron Fuel system cleaner, empty the old gas out as best you can put a full can of either product in fill with fresh fuel and try driving around for a while. It has 2 spark plugs, I don't know the conditions it was stored in but maybe the air cleaner needs replaced or at the least see if the mice have built a nest in it.

Thanks old wing guy I was going to suck all the gas out and try new with additive. How do I access the plugs? What brand and number is recommended?

Plug access is possible through the small maintenance cover on the tunnel, lift the seat and a small screw either side needs to be removed then the cover slips forward and up. Standard plug is NGK CR8EH-9, the plug spanner should be in the toolkit. The side panels below the seat only need removal for the air fliter (right side).

New Zealand used to be a country of 60 million sheep of which 4 million thought they were people...

Lots fewer sheep these days, but more sheeple sadly.

You can find a downloadable copy of the Silver Wing service manual on the Facebook page.
