Hello! I've owned my 09 Silverwing for a few months and have had a blast touring around on it. I really do think it is a special piece of engineering.

I bought it because the weather here in Manitoba is really... continental? The weather varies a lot and the summers are short and I wanted something fuel injected that'll start in cool weather and has good wind protection, so I bought a Silverwing to get the most out of the riding season.

I was considering buying a dual sport or an adventure bike but I couldn't get past the cheap insurance on the Swing -- more than half the price. I can buy fuel all summer with the difference Smile So I've been trying to toughen up the look of the scoot but all I have so far is a pelican case bolted to the rack. I've ordered some Dr. Pulley sliders and can't wait to try those out before the snow flies.

Nice forum! Thanks for letting me join! I enjoy your collected expertise and sense of humour!

Welcome to the best SWing site on the net can_sky! Lots of people here ready and willing to help. Also plenty of information on how to do most of the maintenance on your SWing on your own.

Hello Can Sky. Welcome to the forum.

Assuming that you'll need to order them from a US source, I'm really curious about how much $CDN the Dr Pulley Sliders will cost by the time you get them in your hands.

Greetings fellow Canuck.

I just my scooter a month ago.

I have been looking at the sliders shipping from Taiwan.
They will take a bit longer to arrive.
They are about $72 CND shipped.

Thanks that info Reg. Those 26gm Sliders are the way to go. Looks like you have a bit of a fall project at hand. Hopefully they'll arrive soon while you still have a few riding days left to try them out before you tuck the scoot in for a long winter's nap.

Hello can-sky and welcome to the forum.
You're dead right about the Silverwing being a special bit of engineering. The design seems to provide lots of capability without too much over complication.

Enjoy your riding and keep safe.

To answer your question Cosmic Jumper: I ordered the sliders for around $94.00 Canadian pesos. The exchange rate isn't very favourable right now but it'll do.

Hi Reg: I think you found a pretty great price!  I went for the 24 gram ones and hope they work alright without too many belt or clutch issues.
