General Discussion / Re: Top Box for a VS 150

In my experience  you're probably looking around the 36-40l+ range depending on shape and helmet size.
I'm a fan of the Shad SH40; albeit I hope Shad Australia is more pleasant to deal with than Shad USA.
As far as attaching it goes, that's a bit individual so can't say for sure, but the new Shad kits are pretty flexible.
Other than that if you were on a budget & in the U.S. I'd suggest a Bestem box.  You may have a better selection that we do on this side of the Pacific.

BTW..a Brummie in Australia?  Yom a lung woy frum um skip.

I got some Permantex high temp putty & a about an inch of 7/8" tube and just extended the nipple.

Think the article noted the payment included some gear and maintenance.
Essentially it's a good start for folks, & to keep a job there were times I rode my old Jawa in a MN winter.
Rain is not biggie.  Ice is a whole other thing.
If you're up against it and see a lifeline ya grab it, so folks will deal with it there just like they do over most of the world.

Neat, looks like they're using Fiddle III's.
Makes sense, quick enough, but cheaper/air-cooled maintenance, & purchase cost.

Sooo..any word on the HD for 2018?
Any new ideas on promoting scoot'n ("Scoot'n it's better than Putin"?)

The number one selling bike on the Alliance side Nationwide over the last year or so has Been the Fiddle lll 200cc injected bike, #2 selling bike Nationwide on the Alliance side is the Wolf Classic 150cc, and number 3 is for sure the HD 200.

Got it.
Is this similar to yours?

from here
If so this looks like a press in fitting.  Getting it out and pressing a new one another matter, but probably doable with much labor and swearing. Kinda depends on a few other factors, one of them being the aforementioned corrosion.

The manual issue is pretty easily solved.
The corroded nipple, unless it's a screwed in fitting, notsomuch.
Should be a copy of it for download there.

Barring a pic it's tough to say.
Is is a spot where you could thread a fitting into what's left & the crankcase, or is the metal on the inside decayed as well?

Haven't had a chance to look mine over, but did take a look the manual (available here

Per a pic and instructions in Chapter 13 Page 4 it looks like there is one screw on the front that needs to be pulled as well.

You change it with the initial service then at the other interval thereafter.
Gets the grindings out from break in.  It doesn't take much so other folks with similar intervals change it on their oil changes since it's easier to remember, so a bit more frequently than the recommended interval.

SYM Joyride / Re: What Battery to Buy for my 2014 SYM RV200 EVO?
« on: October 05, 2017, 03:14:07 PM »
Well heck that's annoying.
A lot of the places that sell those have a pretty easy warranty so you do eventually get one that'll last a year or two.
Going to try to warranty it or get something else?

...My inexpensive $26 battery, only three months old, is registering 11.5V on the (flash) instrument gage of the scooter  :'(. This means that it is as close to unserviceable as can be  ::). I shall be surprised if it lasts past this winter  :(.

Pennywise, pound foolish  :-[

Pretty sure that's just a screen that you clean. 
It should be pretty much the same as the Fiddle, which you can get a manual for here.

I'd need to get a gander at it to be sure but it's most likely the same one that all the gy6 scoots use. for instance.

Other than that drop a dime on a dealer and they can tell ya for sure.

HD200 / Re: HD200 Evo carburetor or fuel injected?
« on: October 04, 2017, 04:24:30 PM »
SYM's generally played that one close to the chest until the moment of release.

Not sure if there will be a 2018 for us, but the last model year was carb'd.
That said all the euro ones are injected now, so there's hope.
