I am retired and a long time motorcycle rider just looking into the SW. They look like fun but I don't know much about scooters so I am looking at some used SWs to test the waters. I do much of the wrenching on my current and past motorcycles so I want to know about any issues when buying used at the 15K-20K miles.

The drive belt should be replaced at 16,000 miles. Other than the "normal" maintenance issues, thats about it.

After buying one,
The "Wish I had acquired a Swing 10 years earlier" gauge will probably top 100+!

Welcome !

Depending on how old and how well it's been maintained, besides the belt ,
you probably should change the coolant and the brake fluid also.
