My Swing is non-ABS and when looking to order parts online, Descriptions include FSC600D (AC). What does the (AC) stand for when listed with FSC600D?

It could also mean Alternating Current meaning it works off the electrical wall socket at your home, all you need is a long electrical cable Laughing Laughing

AC = 'American Crap'. These are the Monday morning, Friday afternoon assembled scooters that don't pass the final scrutineering check before leaving the factory. Rather than reject the scooter completely they stick an 'AC' sticker on the screen and ship them to dealers in the States at a 50% reduction. The dealer then removes the sticker and sells them for full price. So the buyer not only gets a scooter, they get screwed as well. Exclamation 

Cheers,

There's been an awful lot of American bashing by the Limeyland crowd lately.

Come on guys. Where are all the knowledgeable historians? Partzilla, hondapartshouse, and other sites include the (AC) and I just need to know that I am ordering the correct part, like the lower case for my right fork. Part number 51421-MCT-681. Anyone got an extra one and willing to sell?

I checked my local dealers online parts listing ,

They show FSC600 as the Silverwing w/o ABS and the FSC600D as with ABS

Don't know if that's accurate or not but that's how they have the two models listed for parts purposes.

Since no one else has jumped in with an answer, I'd suggest you contact a Honda Dealer for
clarification.

Thanks Surly. I always thought that FSC600D was w/o ABS and the FSC600A was with ABS. Aloha and thanks for the come-back. I will check with my local Honda parts people.

I think you've done your share of stirring lately as you fancy yourself as an expert on Constitutional Monarchy, and I think by your post you're hoping to start something up again

As for being too wet to ride, if you remember we Limeys never refer to the "riding season", if it's raining we just suit up and get out in it. It's no big deal, an accepted part of our riding, and most of the Brits on here have been riding for years.

We've just had weeks of very hot sunny weather and I'll admit I've found riding uncomfortable even in a vented suit and open face helmet, and not helped by wearing a Knox back protecter. Remember riding round in Confederate flag doo rags isn't an option for us over here.  Neutral

A good place for part numbers is .. http://www.bike-parts-honda.com/ .. but as noted by surlybiker they only differentiate between ABS & non ABS models.

No idea on the -AC suffix,I tried adding it to the UK model FJS600D & it was not recognized at all so possibly something like American Custom maybe

I just looked that site does not list by letter but by year .........

SILVER WING 600 FSC6004-US USA 2004
SILVER WING 600 FSC6005-US USA 2005
SILVER WING 600 FSC6006 USA 2006
SILVER WING 600 FSC6007 USA 2007
SILVER WING 600 FSC6008 USA 2008 .....


As you can see 2004 & 2005 both have -US suffix,the more I look the more I get confused.

According to page 7 of that parts catalog ^^ AC = Area Code .. So logically that leads me to think AC in this case = American Continent

Looking in my FJS600 shop manual code :

ED = European Direct Sales (Germany,Spain,Italy)

E = U.K.

F = France


From that it may be that AC = America Canada

Without overthinking it, why not call the company you are ordering from and ask them? This may be an internal designation listed by that company. I put your listing in a search engine and it came back with "accessories".

Its obvious: AC = all confused (at this point anyways). If the top 10 royal elite members here dont know then its got to be a mistake on Hondas part  Razz , and to think some of these guys could have written wikipedia in a single day (maybe one of them did).

I haven't got the slightest interest in what AC means, but a couple of minutes ferreting around revealed that AC refers to a 2002 model FSC Silver Wing, and AD for the 2003-2004 models.

On the FJS variants we have in the UK and Europe they use the A plus a number, my 2010 is an A7. Since the only major change over the years to the Silver Wing has been the phasing out of the non ABS models and a more fuel efficient engine, these letters and numbers don't mean that much at all in real terms, because I bet a new UK model now would be still be an A7.

For someone who hasnt the "slightest interest" in what AC means you sure jumped into the research. I get a kick out of the way some guys on this forum like to put up a tough guy facade. You ride a scooter- theres no tough guy in you.

Hardly research mate, I came across it looking for something else, and it took me longer to type out my previous post than follow the lead to the answer.

As for the tough guy facade I think you're confusing me with that wannabe mobster guy that was on here last week telling one of my fellow Brits to "Capiche!

I'm not worried about the scooter image in the slightest either, but I might be if I fitted a pair of armrests to my Silver Wing, I'd come across a Gold Wing wannabe.

Meldrew,

We've also had a brutally hot spell here which finally broke last week to more reasonably comfortable
riding weather . Since Maryland sided with the North in the Civil War not everyone here wears the
"Stars and Bars " Sorry to disillusion you.

How strange, I'd have thought they would wear whatever they liked since the Civil War ended nearly 150 years ago.

Anyway we're off topic again, and the faint glimmer of interest in what AC means seems to have faded. Sad

Even more confusion here,if you google "fsc600ac" it covers 2012 machines,google "fsc600ad" & that covers 2013 machines scratch scratch
