Greetings, all. I lurk here a lot and post occasionally. I've been a SWing owner now for about 4 years and it's been a very good motorbike throughout.
I must first admit that I am really not much of a handy guy...I don't work on cars at all, anymore...they're just too complex. With the motorbikes, I noted that commercial service costs were also expensive, so I resolved to do as much routine maintenance as I could and leave the complex stuff to the professionals.
With the SWing, I've done oil and filter changes, final drive oil changes, air filter, etc. I have the factory manual and it's great, but sometimes, it directs you to do things which are not necessary. For example, in the final drive oil change, step one is to remove the left rear footpeg mount, then remove some sheet plastic and the CVT dust cover. By snooping around here a bit, though, I discovered a pictorial on how to do the work without doing all that. I found out that there's actually no need to do all that and the final drive oil change is really pretty simple.
So anyway, this is just a long way of saying "thank you" to the website owners, moderators and mechs here for your hard work and your very helpful pictorials, hints and other help. You've saved me a lot of money and, more importantly, helped me to become a bit more self-sufficient.
