Hello,

i live in the south of france. I have been the owner of a 2008 SW600 for 2 weeks like new with few km.
A real pullman.
Only small inconvenience of vibrations in the dashboard during the first meters. Certainly due to the grip of the clutch (even more sensitive with pasager) and maybe to the fixing of the elements of the dashboard. Because after the very start of the start-up it's a joy of softness and power.
I disassembled the transmission, it's clean (12000km) but the belt at 13 years old and a little marked on the side in different places. To change certainly too old.
Thanks.
L

Hello L. Welcome to the forum.

Regarding the rattles & vibrations you hear at the dashboard, you might try covering the panel seams with masking (painters) tape and gradually over a period of days or weeks remove the tape to see if you can isolate the source.

Hello L and Welcome to the BEST SWing site on the net. The search box at the upper left is your friend. Lots of information there or by just asking. I also have a 2008 SWing but I converted over to a trike a few years back with no regrets.

Hello and welcome. My wing has minor rattles too. Everything else is good. You chose well.

Welcome to the forum kotx. My front end plastic parts rattle when I first startup. After a mile or so it all settles down and stops vibrating. The main problem with my SW is the piece of garnish above the headlight, a previous owner has snapped off the locating lugs.

I put it down to a cold engine which settles as it warms up.

Do you have a bunch of keys hanging from the ignition switch? They can be a constant irritation.

Good morning all,

Thank you all for the welcome.

No, I don't have a set of keys.

may be it can be an old disassembly badly done with broken fasteners. however I had tried another SW which had the same vibrations in the dashboard when the clutch was activated, even stronger than mine. I think more of a design weakness. The vibrations are only the wave of the transmission, and of the clutch in particular.
I'm going to focus on it by taking it all down, and following all the advice I found while making a clutch query on this great forum.
Thank you.
Otherwise it's so much a smoothy machine that I'll get there. As a last resort, rear brake, engine at 4000 rpm for 5 seconds, this will redesign the jaws (shoes) on the bell.
Thanks

I'm not a fan of using this 4000rpm for 5 seconds procedure to reduce vibration. I think some vibration is a just a peculiarity of the SW and maybe other CVT drive motorcycles.

Check for any loose items but I think you will always have 'some' vibration noise.

There are lots of threads on this forum regarding vibration.

Welcome KOTX!
I have a 2007 Silverwing with 6400 miles on it and it does have minor rattles but nothing I can’t live with. I changed the windscreen to a Givi and that really helped with wind noise and maybe a slight reduction in the fairing noise.

Rattles and vibrations seems to be the nature of the beast.
The fairing acts as a resonater, the transmission is a collection of rubber band, weights and springs all controlled by friction and centrifugal forces and the whole lot bounces along on springs.
It is worth stripping the transmission every so often, including the clutch, just to clean all the dust and debris that accumulates from bit wearing and that does smooth things out till next time.
But the bike is reliable, fun to ride and these days cheap. What's not to like? 🙂

Agree with steve_h80. A regular cleaning of the drive train helps a lot.

You might consider converting to Dr Pulley 24gram sliders. You'll experience less vibration, faster acceleration, better MPH to RPM ratio at around 60 MPH. About a 500 RPM drop.
