I had a nice 2002 Silver Wing a few years ago. The seat hurt my bottom really bad after 25 miles or so, I sold it, but wish I hadn't. So I bought another '02 a few days ago. I intend to modify the seat to fit my bottom a little better. I've lost lots of weight, so it has more power than I expected.
I have noticed that when I slow down to turn in a driveway, the belt feels like its "snatching". Its very smooth at riding speeds. Any ideas on that? Thanks.

Welcome to the site and congrats on getting another SWing. You may want to try de-glazing the clutch by holding on the brake and revving it up to about 4,000 rpm's for a few seconds. I did this for the 7 years I had the SWing and it is a kick fix to getting rid of a shudder. Some will take off what is needed and physically de-glaze the clutch which takes a long time.

JeffR, I'm new to SWings, is clutch glazing a common problem? Is it related to riding style, riding two-up? I'd appreciate any information or advice. Thanks, Tadpole

Tadpole,

Sometimes it happens during slow riding like in very slow traffic. It is somewhat common but I only had to de-glaze mine a few times a year. We get to filter traffic in California though. You know you need to use the technique I mentioned when you take off and it may shudder just a little bit. But the scooters with the kind of transmission like the SWing, Reflex, or even the Burgman 400.
