This is Joel in Missoula, MT. Just got a 2007 Silverwing in a trade. 10k miles, in VG condition. Runs great and it's got a throttle lock device you operate with your thumb. I can hear some clutch squeal when taking off and it seems to backfire a bit when decelerating without braking, but other than that it seems to be in top shape. It's been sitting for close to a year. Oil looks clean, but I have yet to inspect much but the exterior. I plan on checking the air filter, clutch pads, plugs, etc. when I've got some time. What a fun bike!

Welcome aboard the board and look for some good sailing with the S'Wing. You MAY for the peace of mind do as I did and just go ahead and change ALL the fluids and have a good known date for the maintenance. I did a spark plug change air filter and drive belt change latter. There is a wealth of information here and good folks to guide you.

Welcome Joel,

I would agree about just getting a solid date for fluid changes, and youll soon realize the Silverwing is a rock solid engine, hopefully the backfire is nothing serious though!

Welcome to the forum, Joel.

A gentle popping seems to be normal on '07 & later machines. IIRC in 2007 Honda changed the ECM & settings to increase fuel economy and reduce emissions. The PAIR valve pumps air into the exhaust when the scoot decelerates which causes the popping.

However, if you are experiencing a loud backfire then you've got a problem. Maybe loose exhaust headers bolts at the cylinder head; a bad/missing muffler gasket; or very loose header pipe/muffler clamp --something which will allow too much air to get sucked into the exhaust system. HTH

Thanks all. I will definitely get around to the fluid changes sometime soon, and the gear oil when I check or de-glaze clutch pads and inspect belt. Good to know about the backfiring/pressure, I'll keep a close eye on specifics in case of exhaust issues. Thanks Tim for that info. I did add some coolant last night as it was below the lower mark. I used a non-silicate 50/50 blend by ServicePro.

Wheelman406,
There is an easier way to de-glaze your clutch. Hold the left brake then increase your RPM to about 4k for about 4-5 seconds. It will smoke and smell some. You can prevent this from happening in the future if you do some hard acceleration off the line.

Thanks Easyrider, I'll do that. Should get me by until I open up the case for inspection/cleaning. Wanted to check out the belt & bell condition eventually aklso. Great tip!
