Traded the Reflex, just got tired of WOT everywhere. Much more comfort in the S wing. The seat back kind of needs some work for comfort. Any suggestions welcome.

Welcome to the forum Stainless.

Comfort? Raise the butt rest/back rest the same way the guys did on the Reflex forum.

Welcome to the site.

The Silverwing is a great scooter and you have come to a great place for information on it. I have a Silverwing and my wife has a Reflex. They are both great bikes. If I am going to the store, I generally hop on her Reflex as it is more agile and about 150 lbs lighter.

The Reflex has an unusual variator as half the rollers have a mechanical stop to cause the gear ratio to shift up quickly which limits the rpm to 4000 rpm until your reach about 35 mph. It helps the mileage a bit but kills the low speed acceleration.

I changed the Reflex drive belt a couple of years ago and while I was in there, I replaced the rollers with sliders and bought the variator faces from a Big Rukus (PS250). The Big Rukus doesn't use the crazy two step variator. The faces are direct replacements. It really woke up the bike for a 250cc scooter. The sliders gave It a lower starting gear which launches it much better and it immediately revs to about 5500 rpm. My wife can leave my Silverwing in the dust till about 30 mph now.

I hope that you get as much enjoyment from your scooter as we have gotten from ours.

My 86 Helix will leave just about everybody in its dust until about 78 km/h. I stopped those crazy take-offs because it tends to piss off all kinds of people, even sleepy 80yr-old drivers and they chase me like they want to run me over. Harley riders are the worst: sorest losers, albeit for about 100 yards or so !!!

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome.
I still miss the nimble feel of the 300lb reflex but at 70mph cruise it was almost out of its element. No wiggle room for passing . The Swing is just getting its stride at 70. I put 10k miles minimum per year commuting from Orlando to Disney and home again. Cheers all!
