Heyy members,

I recently purchased a 2006 S'wing that spent the last two years (2015-2017) inside a storage room. The bike had low milage 16000km (approx ~9941 miles) but had suffered from 2 tip-overs, once due to turning of a sandy road surface and another the previous owner admitted is unknown as he returned home and the bike was laying down in the roadway.

The old owner, retired-mechanic from Ford, had maintained the scooter up until he stored it in 2015. I looked pass the scuffed, the scratches and bought it. Life is about taking some chances!

The rattles came from everywhere but most the dashboard area. I rolled up my sleeves and fixed the problem... one of many -_- smh

I uploaded a few photos of the damage I found inside the front fairing.

With the engine running and an assistance at the throttle I located the rattle. Rear of the dashboard left side (Behind RPM dial) a small piece of plastic has broken off I assume from constant contact with metal bracket.

I filled the gap around the pin with JB weld Plastic Bond

Some many broken clips. I fixed those with Plastic Bond as well. I will use my dremel to knock down the extra material.

It's the nature of the beast to rattle on take-off. I'm sure you'll find your SWing a bit quieter, but those rattles will only be muted somewhat, over time they'll get louder. I thought I had my rattles fixed on my nowcrashed 2005. Similar problems to yours, broken tabs, etc. I fixed what I could, got it a bit quieter but not for long.
My 2007 has fewer rattles but it has not had much tab breakage, more scratches on the plastic skirt. I have already found one but bound to be a few more lurking under all that great body !
Jay.

I'm tackling the moving off vibration problem (so bad, passers by stare in wonder) from another aspect.

I'm looking to raise the revs a little before and as the clutch starts to bite. I've ordered some 25gm Dr. Pulley sliders and some 10% tighter clutch shoe springs.

It may not cure the vibes, but may improve the performance slightly.
