I got bored this evening so went to my garage to putter around a bit. I started to dust off the Swing then decided to see for myself what kind of condition the drive belt was in. I have never removed the belt covers before and was interested to see the workings underneath. I removed the plastic covers and cleaned the filter under the front cover. I then removed the aluminum cover and was a little concerned with the way the belt appears to have rubbed on the aluminum housing. Its the same on the top and bottom of the housing. Is this normal? The bike got 18k klms on it now. The belt measures 27mm (1 3/32") at its widest part. What does a new belt measure?

Yes, the two Silver Wings I've worked on do this too - one is a 2012 and one a 2007. Both did it as early as a couple thousand miles. I am convinced this is also the source of the turkey gobble.

I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't have belt measurements, but I will say I think Honda specified the PITA belt wear check procedure specified on pg 10-7 of the service manual for a reason (to catch top of belt wear due to belt slap, perhaps?), but I am not smart enough to fully understand what they were thinking.

Hotwings the belt slap on the top and bottom of the cover is normal belt slapping when the variator changes the position of the belt .27 millimetres is the in spec (new belt- 27 mil)

Worry?! But you live in Canada!

According to a poll it's the third best country to live in - after Australia and Sweden!!!

The UK is 10th.

Canada IS the best country to live in. Beautiful scenery, Low crime. I like the way i can pull the swing into a coffee shop (most places) and leave the helmets on the mirrors, gps left in its mount, key (most times) left in the ignition and not have to worry about things missing upon return. I wouldnt do it in any major cities but all our riding is mainly rural.

Heck. I do that all the time, city or rural. I even feel comfortable leaving the Doberman tied to the handlebars. Smile

Why is there a bit of paper being held on by a rubber band on the Maisto? models. Is it cammo to stop them being pinched, or worse yet is it so we can't see that someone has already pinched the motors out of them?

I got all the harley models from walmart back a few years ago when i had a sportster. I built a new house so before we moved i thought i had better label them all otherwise i wouldnt remember which is which. I had em all on display in a lighted cabinet at the old house but a month or so ago i stumbled across the box with the models and just placed em around my workbench.

yeah all swings have belt rub marks , it seems even in as little as 750 miles , I am guessing the first time it rubbed was when they started it up and drove it off the assembly line ....

Hey, glad to meet more Canucks! Not that I'm one but I love the country and people.

Anyway - Turkey Gobble!! Thats EXACTLY what it sounds like!! I have a 2010 Swing, bought it just in March (for a joint Silver Wedding present for me and my bride) with less than 3000 miles on it. It began turkey gobbling soon after and has done so sporadically, mainly when the weather is dry! I was worried but no warning lights came on and the machine never faltered. Was gonna take the drive covers off to investigate but won't bother now, thanks guys! And I'm squeezing 60+ mpg out of it on my daily 35 mile commute to and from Belfast on mixed fast highway and slow traffic. I'm pleased! The standard screen sucks though, will get a GIVI before I do any long distance rides and those mirror extenders are completely PERFECT!
