welcome applause  welcome 
Look around the forum and try the search and you'll find answers to most any questions you can think of. After a quick search if you still have questions just ask and you will get answers. But pertaining to oil that question has been beat to death on most any forum dealing with vehicles of any kind. As for what you need to do for an 06 Silverwing, change all fluids and change or inspect tires and belt. If you plan to ride very far from home it would be best just to replace all rubber.

Jond,
I personally would look for a bike with ABS brakes, secondly a 2008 or newer. From 2008, thw Swings came out with an o2 sensor which adjusted the fuel mixture depending upon the amount of o2 in the exhaust. This added 5-10 more miles per US-gallon of gas. ABS speaks for itself. Much safer in an emergency situation.

My 2020 Swing does not have ABS brakes. I wish I had found this forum before getting it. I just drive with more caution. I continually search for a 2008 or newer with ABS, but here in Hawaii it does not happen too often. Good luck on your search. Aloha.

I have an 08 without ABS and an 07 with ABS. So far I haven't noticed any difference in gas mileage. As for the ABS I've put over 50,000 miles on the 08 without ABS and never had a problem with it. That said the reason I bought the 07 was because it had ABS and everyone told me it was a must have.  Rolling Eyes

I use Amsoil but I think any good oil will work, just change regularly and you shouldn't have any problems.

Offer less---like$2000----8yr old scooter----based on age , replace tires immediately!! They are your connection between life and death.

Any rubber hoses/rubber stuff will have aged---find maint. history. Brake fluid/anti freeze=change!


ABS does nothing on day to day riding----but can save your life on wet/slippery surfaces, etc...or panic


Oil=everybody has favorite....but do not ride enough to wear scooter out. On second new SilverWing, I use WalMart 10-40, and Fram 6017A filters from there, too. This oil works, is cheap, find any place----500,000 miles on it since 1993=no engine trouble, scooters/Miatas/wet and dry clutch motorcycles. I change at 2,000 mile intervals, filter every other change and I never let oil stay in crankcase more than 60 days.

Get Honda shop manual.

Replace drive belt, keep old as spare.
