Just bought an 05 Wing with 5800 miles on it. Overall good condition with some minor body work issues. Changed oil, changed the coolant, it seems to run ok. Injured in Iraq in 04 and just couldn't handle lifting the leg over a bike with the hip issue. Had over 40 bikes in the past and the wing runs decent but a little harsh on rough roads. The rear shocks are stock and they never work all that well so probably will change out and re-valve the forks at some point. Anyone in the area that needs assistance with mechanical issues give a shout.
Worked on just about everything under the son. full shop as well..
Ciao.

Hello Barry

Thank you for your service. Welcome to the forum.

No re-valving to front suspension. Either change to a heavier fork oil, change the springs to Hyper Pros or both. You can also replace the rear shocks with Hagons.
