Can anyone advise what if anything needs to be checked at 50K Miles please?

I already have the fork springs and oil on my list as this has always been a issue on my 02 Swing.

My head bearings have developed a notch at staright ahead position so I will be doing this once again (Sad) , its a bugger of a job to get the bottom race out but I intend to cut a notch in it this time to get the edge of the drift on it and hey presto we should be there. Ths time honda spares not No BAlls head set , these were inferior to Honda imo .

So far the clutch in the rear hub does not show any issues that I am aware of but maybe a change of oil would be a good idea...

My belt has not been changed so I intend to do that as well but I checked it 6K ago and it looked sweet as, so maybe just another inspection.....

Front brake caliper seals need to be changed so thats also on the list...

Variator weights , mmmmm not sure , whats the symptoms of a worn set of weights anyone?

Wheels are looking a bit rough so a re-con job on them would be good to ensure they are good for another 50k

VAlve clearances , I guess its quite a big job on these engines so not sure if I will bother but what you say?

The SWing is a commuter work horse and Do it all bike so I feel I need to give her some love back for all the good times we have had so far , not missed a beat since I purged the crap from the fuel lines .....hurrah!

Looks like you covered all the bases.  Good luck, my rule of thumb is, brakes, tires, good fluids and if it makes noise investigate it.

Having just renewed the front disc and pads on my UK 09 swing with 20k mls on the clock I would stongly recommend replacing the cylinders as well, here's the proof why50000 Mile Service 20230111

As you can see the rust pits go down below dust and seal positions particularly the back brake combo piston.
Which causes  it to bind on, also the top piston.

Mine looked like this when I bought my SW at just 15000 miles:

Brakes are always worth a regular good look-over. I overhauled both front and rear calipers and now take them off from time to time and give 'em good clean-up. I also like to check that the sliding parts move freely.

I would add check the clutch shoes for wear, and if in doubt replace them. They are only about £50 (possibly more now since the UK economy has sunk), it's aan easy job, unlike replacing a knackered bell housing.

Seems the only blessing we have these days is to be able to use stainless steel cylinders when over-hauling our calipers, at a cost ofc.
