Just wanted to record my thanks to everyone on the Forum (too numerous to list) who have posted helpful entries. I am a "gatecrasher" on the forum as I don't own a Silverwing but the smaller Honda SWing .( European scooter)....so have nothing useful to post. However many of the maintenance and other postings are relevant to my scooter ( albeit my components are slightly smaller)
While I am a DIYer I am certainly no mechanic so this site (along with the Haynes manual) has given me the confidence to do my own servicing and maintenance. May not sound much to experienced people but have just successfully removed and refitted the rear wheel for garage to put on new tyre ( saving £50/60) and new rollers on variator ( Dr Pulleys) along with cleaning things while components off/renewing filters/O rings etc....and all down to the confidence this forum has given me
So just wanted to give thanks to all...and safe traveling.
