    Good idea to check it out before you let her go crazy loading it up.

    Just ordered the Givi tall windshield from Twisted.
    Per installation instructions I see online: it looks like one of the mirrors might be bass ackwards as in righty loosey/lefty tighty.

    I personally didn’t fool with adding the mirror extender when installing the Givi windshield. The bike still has full use of the steering without it, it just touches the windshield when at full lock in one of the directions. During normal use, it would never be an issue. Up to you if you think it’s worth the extra step.

    Hit the 600 mile mark on the Smax. Changed the oils and reset the meter this morning. She's broke-in and ready to ride.

    Love the red! Don't forget the all important first valve check.

    Easy to install, and more important it works great.
    There is a whistle sound now around 40-45 mph after installing the windshield.
    Installed the mirror extensions that came with it too. Without the extensions, the mirrors will hit the windshield.

    We are just entering prime scooter weather here in Florida and this weekend the weather was just about perfect so I went riding around and discovered some nice suburban areas and even a few fun curvy sections. I also just passed 4K wonderful miles. I love my Smax!

Enjoy.

    Put 1500 fun km on my SMAX around town this summer. Just winterized it but there will be few rides here and there on good weather days. Great fun.

    I arrived at my snowbird home. My 2015 Smax was put away in locked up storage last April fully serviced. No battery tender. I pulled it out of storage and hit the starter. Dead...kill switch...damn. The scoot fired up and I was off to check tire pressure. Ran smooth and quick like the Smax is known for. Winter? It was 92 here near Palm Desert. Now where's my cue stick?

    I performed the 12,000 mile service at 12.8k on my SMAX. I replaced the spark plug, adjusted the valves, replaced the belt and changed the rollers to sliders.
    12g sliders made a noticeable improvement on top end performance. I was able to hit 80 mph indicated at 9k rpm vs. 9.5k rpm. The drawback was that it took forever to pull it that high.
    I also tried 11g sliders. They added a slight increase in low end take off speed without affecting original top end performance.
    I believe that the biggest improvement was due to the new belt. The top end had been down by a few mph over the last couple thousand miles. I did not accurately measure the new belt vs. the old belt, but it looked to be about 2mm wider than the old belt.
    So far, I have left the 11g sliders in place, but may change back for further review.
