A friend of mine and I spent the weekend dismantling my Silverwing.
This was our first time dismantling a vehicle, let alone a motorcycle.
Follow my pictorial journey to see what unfolded...
First, we had to remove the plastic fairing surrounding the frame.
The Silverwing may be score well in areas like comfort and handling, but it's a real hassle to remove its fairing, especially the front!
I proceeded to remove the front fender...
and my electrical components like the relay pieces and rectifier. I kept these as spares. I cut through the wire harness as I was not intending to keep it. I did keep the ECU unit though.
Digging deeper, I removed the air intake box & throttle body to access the starter motor. This is a key component that I also intended to keep as a spare part.
Of course, not forgetting the CVT transmission. Pretty dirty if I do say so myself!
This is the Silverwing without its fairing and underseat box. I'd like to think that the chassis could be chopped up to be converted into a cruiser!
And lastly, the engine and chassis (which are required by government law to be scrapped) at the government-appointed scrapyard. Cheers for the 24,000km clocked in.
