Mio 50 / Bunch of Mio parts available, including a low-mileage engine...
« on: October 30, 2017, 10:19:04 AM »
I have a bunch of Mio parts available, including a low-mileage, still restricted complete engine.  Most of the parts are listed on eBay.  The best way to find them on eBay is to do an advanced search on eBay searching for seller user id kaspejkp to see all the parts I have listed there.  Hopefully, you'll find something you need and it will save you some bucks from new.  Below is at least a photo of the engine, which is listed on eBay for $400 OBO, where I would of course have to pay eBay + PayPal fees....the photo below is one I have of the engine on the Charlotte, NC Craigslist where it's $300.

General Discussion / 2010 SYM Mio parts scooter or parts for sale
« on: November 17, 2016, 10:22:41 AM »
I have a '10 SYM Mio 50 scooter that has a lot of good parts on it.  I purchased it and used some the parts to repair another SYM Mio 50. The engine on it has approx. 1,500 miles and as far as I know, should run.  I will guarantee that it will or your money back.  I never tried to start-up the engine, as all I needed off the engine was the carburetor assembly. If I happen to locate a carb for a reasonable price that will work, I'll fire-up the engine to make sure it runs properly.  The parts that were missing off of it when I got it and parts that I used off of it are listed below, meaning these parts are NO LONGER AVAILABLE:

  1 ) Carburetor assembly
  2 ) One shock boot...have only one remaining
  3 ) Battery
  4 ) Front fender plastic parts ...have the metal bracket the fender attaches to
  5 ) Front headlight assembly and surrounding plastic piece
  6 ) Keys
  7 ) Ignition switch
  8 ) Both mirrors
  9 ) Engine cooling shroud cover (plastic)
10 ) Triple tree (bent)
11 ) All turn signals
12 ) Rear splash guard (this is not the fender over the rear tire)
13 ) V.I.N. plate plastic cover
14 ) Kick-start lever

I have a speedometer assembly, but the gas gauge within it does not function. Everything else works within the assembly.

If you want the whole parts scooter or just need a part or parts for a SYM Mio 50, please inquire by sending me a p.m.

Interesting.  Thanks for the info.  By the way, do you own a SYM Mio 50?  If you do, what are the specs on the carb's air intake (inside and out) and also the air out side's specs?  I don't have mine to measure, since it was stolen.

Thanks!  I'll look into it.  I know the scooter has a 4-valve head, which takes in more air and I can't help but wonder if it requires a special type of carburetor somehow.  Maybe it doesn't matter as long as you have the correct size carb with the proper jetting and air screw adjustment.

Please send me a p.m. should you have a good Mio 50 carb available for sale.  A new one is simply too expensive for my budget, at well over $200 with shipping.  Thanks!

Mio 50 / Re: Mio 50 speed restrictors
« on: July 11, 2013, 01:17:27 PM »
Awesome! Can't wait to see if I can get just a little extra out of my MIO. I thought about getting a performance exhaust, http://www.provoscooter.com/scooters/sym/sym-mio-50-4t/tecnigas-next-r-pipe-chome-139qmb-kymco-50-4t.html
but then I would have to re-jet and I am not a mechanic.


It'll help, believe me...engine will breathe better, increasing performance.  Have you or someone else removed the speed-restricting ring between the variator halves? If not, that's robbing top speed.

Performance pipes/exhausts usually don't benefit 4-strokes too much, especially for the amount you will spend.  If I were you, I'd look into installing some Dr. Pulley sliding variator weights inside the variator, as opposed to the standard rolling weights.  Google "Dr. Pulley sliding variator weights" to learn more.  Off hand, I do not know the gram weight of a stock Mio 50 roller, but you can probably find that out online somewhere.  Whatever the stock roller gram weight is, if you do decide to order-up so Dr. Pulley sliding variator weights, I wouldn't go down more than a gram in weight to start with.  If you do, you MAY lose some top speed.  Just my two cents, from experience.

Thank you for responding. Looking at the picturs of the speed restrictors at the top of this thread, Would I be removing the entire black boot looking thing or just the little portion the arrow is pointing too?

You're welcome.  You remove the entire black "boot looking thing", which on mine was glued-on.

Pics and Vids / Re: SYM Fiddle II 125 Accessorized

where did you get the mirrors

The mirrors I purchased from the local Honda shop for around $40.00.  If I remember correctly, they're the same mirrors that come stock on a Honda Ruckus.  They work great, providing better (wider) rearward visibility than the stock Fiddle II chrome, round mirrors.  I'm an average built guy and I had a hard time seeing around my body with the stock mirrors, especially if I was wearing a jacket of almost any kind.

Nice pictures.

There is somekind of bag / pouch in front panel where you can put keys and stuff. Where did you get it? Original accessories?

Very nice trailer. How do you hook up the trailer?

How did you make the foor board? Looks neat.

More detailed pictures accessories would be nice.

ps. What are you carrying in trailer...ladies maybe ::)?


Thanks.  I really enjoyed that scooter...put about 5,000 miles on it before selling to one of my scooter club buds.

The "bag/pouch" thing you are referring to is a Bell brand automotive trash container I purchased from Advance Auto here in N.C.  I modified it just a bit and mounted it where you see it in the photos.  You can see a larger photo here...http://symforum.com/index.php?topic=120.0

This is where the trailer fastened to the scooter...


The floor mat is Michelin brand and I purchased it at Big Lots here in N.C.  Of course I trimmed-it-up a bit to give it a custom fit.  I was just trying to keep my original floorboard looking great for when I sold it down-the-road.

I used the trailer to carry lightweight things....like beach chairs, a small cooler, picnic basket and other not-so-heavy items.  I did haul a couple of bags of mulch from the hardware store once.

Sorry, no ladies allowed on the trailer...on the scooter is where I prefer my lady to ride. ;)

General Discussion / Re: Electrical problem sym mio 100
« on: March 01, 2011, 11:05:43 PM »
Unless I'm mistaken, the main fuse is likely located in the battery compartment.  There should be an inline fuse container (usually white) on a wire coming off the positive battery terminal.  This elongated plastic container pops open and holds the main fuse.  If the fuse is blown, put another correct amperage fuse in and see what happens.  If it blows it again, you definitely should have someone investigate why it blew.  I had a scooter not too long ago that was frying main fuses because of a faulty horn that was shorting out.  It was tricky to figure that one out.  Anyway, someone who is experienced in electronics and has the proper electrical testing equipment should be able to narrow it down fairly quickly for you.  Hope this helps in some way.  Best of luck!

Fiddle II 125 / Re: HELP What size belt
« on: February 03, 2011, 10:17:01 PM »
Does the Fiddle II 125cc use. At first I was told it used a 913X19.5X28 but I can't find those anywhere. Then I spoke to Dave (he was very helpful) at Scoterlounge in Utah and he told me after measuring the belt on a Fiddle II on his showroom floor the the size was 799X19X28. This is interesting because that is the same size belt that the Honda Elite 125 and 150 used in the late 80s. Honda has the belt but they want $100.00 for it. The new Lance Cali (from Lance Powersport) uses the same engine as the Fiddle II and thus the same belt but they want $60.00 for theirs. It isn't the money so much as the need to get the right belt to begin with. Anybody have the right answer, I'm desperate.

The correct size for the Fiddle II 125 drive belt is 799 x 19 x 28.

Fiddle II 125 / Re: Stalls when stopping
« on: December 05, 2010, 01:44:38 PM »
Thanks so much for the quick response.  Today I finally had an opportunity to go through your suggestions.  I have 1800 miles on my Fiddle II 125 and I always put in the highest grade of fuel when I fill up.

Since it hadn't been run in a couple weeks, it didn't really want to start today.  I have never had to do this before but every time I started it today I had to pull on the throttle while starting.  Once I did get to test drive it for about 10 minutes later on and it seemed to start easier after that.

So I ended up having to turn the idle screw about 3/4 of a turn to get it to the point that it wouldn't stall when it pulled back to idle.  At this far of a turn though it doesn't seem to pull back to idle at all.  I did also look at the spark plug and to my untrained eye it seemed fine.  All of the hoses seemed fine as well as well as the air filter.  I don't know what the idle jet is so I didn't look at that.

When I had the scooter up on the stand and started it, the rear wheel was always turning.  I had never noticed this before but quite honestly had never payed much attention to it.  Is it normal for the wheel to constantly rotate?  I could stop it with the brake of course but would immediately start rotating rapidly again as soon as the brake was released.  When I test drove it, it seemed like when I was stopped that if I released the brake without any throttle that it would still start moving and I had never noticed that before either.

The motorcycle/scooter shop in my city didn't want to service my Sym because they said they don't have access to any Sym parts so they probably wouldn't be able to fix any issues.

You should not have to give your Fiddle any throttle to get it cranked when it's cold, as it has an automatic choke.

Your back wheel should only turn slightly with the scooter up on the center stand.  If it's turning more than slightly, especially with the engine warmed-up good, then turn the idle screw counter clockwise in 1/4 turn increments till the back wheel only turns a little...meaning you should be able to stop the wheel from turning easily, say with your foot, not having to use the rear brake. 

It could be your carburetor needs to be cleaned-out, which a good cleaning will free any tiny trash particles that might be impeding the flow of fuel through the different carburetor jets.  This is a common procedure for bikes that sit for extended periods without taking proper precautions...like using top grade fuel and also adding fuel stabilizer.  It's not really good to leave a bike sitting around too long with fuel the way it is these days...lots of additives and it can go bad quickly.

BTW, a carb cleaning doesn't use any parts, nor does some other basic services, so that scooter shop you took it to won't necessarily need any parts.  They should at least be able to check it out for you though and definitely be able to clean your carb.  THEY MAY NOT NEED ANY PARTS TO FIX IT!!!  Sounds to me like their not a very good shop and just didn't want to mess with it for whatever reason.  They are fools for not at least wanting to check it out for you, so take it somewhere else.  It's their loss!

Anyway, try getting the carb. cleaned-out first and if that doesn't fix it, then move on to the next possible solution.
