Does anyone have the length between the front and rear axle?   The measurement should be taken when on center stand, center of axle to center of axle? Thanks in advance.

I'm truly curious why you need the measurement.

Wheelbase (that is the same as axle-to-axle) is 62.8 inches per Honda, but not sure exactly how they measured it. If what you need it for actually matters about whether or not it's on the center stand or not, you better measure it yourself so you get the exact right number, because it won't be a lot different than 62.8 and I wouldn't trust some random person on the internet to do the measurement for something extremely precise.

Your owner's manual will give you the wheelbase if you don't want to take the trouble to measure

Don't know if it has changed over the years or not , but my 2007 is listed at 62.8 inches or 1,595mm

Thanks all for your responses. I had a minor front end accident and wanted to know if the front end had shifted any. Obviously I could have measured my Swing, but that will not answer my question. Thanks again.

OK, my measurement is at 61.8. It is an inch short.  I know that the stem bearing needs to be replaced.  It has a distinct notch when turning lock-to-lock.  Will pull the bearing and measure the steering tube for out of round.  If OK, will order and replace the bearings then re-check.

Update.
The steering stem had a bent shaft due to the frontal accident I had.  After replacing the stem, and installing new roller bearings/races my wheel base is within 1/8 of an inch off of the specification.
