After not having a bike for over 25 years I just bought a 2012 Silverwing even though I had been looking at a Burgman 650. The mileage is just over 6K and I will pick it up on Tuesday as soon as the shop puts a new rear tire on it.

Welcome to the best SWing site on the net. Lots of info and people willing to help. I have an 08 SWing and have gotten plenty of helpful info here to help me do most of my own maintenance.

No top box installed. Nothing under seat. Feels like drive train is torquing away from frame.

How can i find engine/trans mounting bolts?  i do not have a bike lift but am reasonably proficient mechanically. If I do find some loose what do I re-torque them to?
I may be posting this in the wrong place. If so, where should I post such questions on this forum?

If you purchased it from a dealer, it may not be too late to have them repair it.

Is the wobble front end or rear? If front then could be head bearings loose or need replacing.

Oh, and welcome.

Check your tire pressures front and rear. My VT 1100 had a similar wobble and I found the rear tire had 20 psi instead of the 33 it required. With low miles on your SWing, I don't see anything too drastic wrong with it. Check the basics.

PS Always check your bike over when you get it from the shop. They overlook, overinflate, underinflate , mount tires the wrong way, and overtighten your brake pads. I speak from personal experience.

Drive on down to Warm Springs when it gets warmer. Great riding down this way.
