I'm thinking that I might end up selling my super-low mile 2007 Silverwing 600 in a month or two. I recently bought a soft-top v8 muscle car, and bizarrely I'm finding that it's fulfilling all the niches that I previously used the Swing for (touring, sunday breakfast runs, holidays, commuting etc). And I could do with cutting down the number of bikes I own. Can't move for bikes, which is stopping me getting on with restoring the others. Haven't ridden it since before winter, which is why I got the car (my first for 10 years): to protect the Swing from the salt!

The bike is an October 07 model, got about 8,000 miles on it or so, wind deflectors for the legs, Givi adjustable screen, full factory top box, Oxford heated grips, fresh dual-compound Pirellis, wheel bearings etc, sintered pads. There are custom built Hagon shocks to lift the rear and sort out the front rake angle to massively improve the steering. The exhaust is a Delkevic road-legal item matched to a K&N pod filter leading into the stock plenum chamber, with the fuelling corrected to match. Dr Pulley sliders are fitted, and the end result is a 2 second reduction in the 0-60 time. I've also got a full Dr Pulley HiT clutch that I've yet to fit. I'd also like to fit a new set of big-bore headers and get a final set of speed and dyno runs done, just to finish my journey with it. But those last two bits are optional. And of course, I've got all the original parts to fit if you want it to go slower, weigh more, and handle like a bad Harley again.

It's a lovely bike, but I just don't use it much now, and I'm sure she wants to be ridden again.

Any way, if any one is interested, let me know, and I'll get some pictures.

All the best, Gavin.

Gee, Gavin, I'm sorry to hear that you are leaving the fold. Your engineering and reports have contributed greatly to understanding how our Silverwings works and have been a great asset to this forum.

Sorry to see you move on, and thanks so much for all you've shared.

Tim

Well, I'm not totally decided yet, it's more a case of if some one locally was looking for a low-mile bike of similar high-spec and made me the right offer... well, I wouldn't mind seeing it go to a good new home.

Might get round to fitting that HiT clutch this weekend and seeing how it goes with that :-)

Swing is definitely for sale, can deliver within reason. Will sell for £3200 with all the trimmings, else it's going back to stock for a dealer sale at £2800, and will then sell all the trimmings separately.

Well, a p/x deal has been arranged with a local dealer against a tidy original Yamaha TRX850. We've agreed £2800 for my swing with only the Givi airflow screen, oxford heated grips, and honda leg wind deflectors. The other parts (oem screen, delkevic exhaust, intake mods, Dr Pulley sliders and HiT clutch kit) are all being kept by me.

So unless any one wants it sharpish, it'll be gone by the end of the week. Contact me for the other parts.

It's a shame you're not selling it with the Oem screen, I would have been interested in the givi 👍

It's too much of a PITA to get off, you have to disassemble most of the front of the bike. I'm more likely to damage something and loose value on the p/x as a result. On the upside, I've got a set of performance bit if you want?

It really isn't difficult, it's just undoing the four screws on the screen garnish and then removing it. A broken tab on the screen garnish hardly matters, as most used Silver Wings are likely to have one if it's been off and on a few times. Then it's just undoing the four screws and removing the brackets holding the Airflow on, and putting the OE screen back on.

As you've obviously removed it before to fit the Givi Airflow it'll be a lot easier. It took me about 30 minutes to swap them round with no mishaps, and I'm not into this Loosey Left, Righty Tighty stuff at all.

Both myself and old Brubaker here in York removed our Airflows and put the useless OE screens back on when we traded in our Silver Wings for the new Forza last Autumn. Removing the Airflow didn't affect the value, and both our Honda dealers seemed to prefer our  Silver Wings in clean bog standard trim, than one tarted up with loads of aftermarket stuff.

Hmmm. I seem to remember fitting the bracketry being a pain, lots of faffing with panels.

What panels, it's just the screen garnish. It's basically the same procedure as changing the electric height adjustable OE screen on the new Forza for the taller Givi. That's even simpler, the screen garnish has only the four screws holding it on, there's no annoying plastic tags that can break off.

Your Airflow would also sell for a good few quid.

Thanks for the info/clarity/reminder. It seems I'd got confused with the minor work to fit the screen, and the massive ball ache it was to remove the front fairing to fit wind deflectors and also wire in some heated grips to main ignition-on feed.

Swapped the screen just now, like you said, a doddle. I've salvaged the fitting kit too.

Cheers :-)

Looks like I missed this one, are there any Brits out there with an Airflow on a shelf somewhere in the shed, surplus to requirements? 👍

Gavin,

I'm about to do the airbox mod with the K&N filter you recommended.

Do you have any photos of the set up?

Reading your old post, you just kept the entire cover off and have the filter resting in the pocket? (I.e. you didn't drill holes in the cover and re-install it.)

Also, did you use the stock connector or just bolt the K&N directly to the 2.5" airbox inlet?

Thanks!

Kevin
