Hello everyone!
My bike is a 2005 model non ABS bought three months ago w 8000 miles back then, a bit more than 9000 currently and love it despite a few Swing stuff....
Already fitted it with KN air filter, KN oil filter, Iridium spark plugs. Ordered following which should arrive very soon, ehm, hopefully:
1) OEM parts: clutch weights and springs, variator drive face and boss, original sliding pieces (and not the weights), front and rear brake pads.
2) 26 grams Dr Pulley sliding weights, Hyperpro springs

I hope the above will:
A) smooth out the acceleration from a complete stop and help alleviate the vibrations
B) improve my mileage ( I usually achieve 130 - 140 miles before tha last fuel gauge bar starts blinking)
C) improve handling big time

Can't wait to improve what is already a great machine but for it (as most cvt scooters) to run really strong and smooth, you need to have a constantly tip top transmission, the heart of such bikes! Will keep you updated....

Hello everyone
Hope you guys who were affected by Sandy are in the best of shapes!
Here I go, fitted everything on the swing:

1) HyperPro progressive springs
2) Pirelli Diablo tires
3) KN air filter
4) NGK Iridium spark plugs
5) KN oil filter
6) 26 grams Dr Pulley's variator weights
7) New OEM clutch pads, clutch springs, drive face, drive face boss

My own personal conclusion is based on a ride today where the rythm was more than fast can be summarized as follows:

1) Top speed of 115 mph instead of 110 mph previously
2) 60 mph at 4500 rpm instead of 5100 rpm previously
3) 85 mph at 6200 rpm instead of almost 7000 rpm previously
4) Acceleration from stop improved but not by much
5) Handling on straights as well as bends is much superior
6) Braking feeling and performance noticed
7) Much better road bumps filtering

overall quite satisfied with the outcome though my swing is not much smoother if any:((

Cheers, Cherif

Cherif:
That is a good list of upgrades. If you want maximize fuel economy and make the engine run really smooth, you might consider adding a Power Commander.

Possibly change the DPS from 26 to 24 grams.

Mine has the J Costa variator fitted and is virtually vibration free.
