HD200 / Re: Anyone interested in my HD?
« Last post by Homer Sympson on Today at 02:16:42 PM »
It's an '06 with 22697 miles. It needs to be painted, but the plastic is in good shape. No cracks in the panels. It was running fine and the head gasket blew. I stopped right after and shut the engine down. It did crank again after I tried to restart it, so I know the motor's not seized. I'm in St. Petersburg and I'm only looking for $500.

Symba / Topping-up SYMBA's tires?
« Last post by LisaRae on Today at 10:02:33 AM »
Hi all,

I've owned my SYMBA for 7 years (the anniversary of getting/riding is still a couple of weeks away, as a vacation intervened), and we're just over 18,000+ km.

I find I need to top-up SYMBA's tires weekly, as they lose about 5 psi/week. I keep the front at 25 psi, and the rear at 35 psi.

I am petite, but not lightweight, and a carry a goodly amount of stuff in a back basket...

How often do you find you need to top-up your tires?

Wolf Classic 150 / Western handlebars ordered
« Last post by Greyrider on Today at 07:56:10 AM »
I've ordered the standard western handlebars from scooterseals.com and eagerly await their arrival.  Its my opinion that the removal of the clip-ons, and the installation of my standard handlebars, is a job for someone with considerable wrenching skills.
Whats YOUR opinion? It MUST be done correctly- my life depends on it.

I would return it to the dealer for repair.
If you mess with it you may well void your warranty.

IB & ktran

Thank you both for your input.

When I get time tomorrow night I will look into the choke and the carb.

I will give everyone an update once I get to the bottom of this.

Thanks again to everyone having my back.

I would also suspect dirty carburetor. Gas goes bad really quickly ins small volumes and varnish can flake off and block the jets and tiny passages.

Maybe you have the choke in but the cable is stuck? That would make it run bad. Or I would say dirty carb. I can tell you I have had to clean carbs several times in a row to get a bike running right. You clean it then some varnish breaks lose and causes issues.

HD200 / Re: WON LAWSUIT for gas tank leak against MIKE HICKMAN SYM HD200 EVO!!! $17000
« Last post by Burgi on August 20, 2017, 11:52:51 AM »
I bought a 2013 with the cap leak issue at only 2500 miles. I can't say when it started.
I had a 2008 that never had a problem.
Couple things I noticed, the two bikes have different color tanks. One is white, one black. Did SYM change the material that the tank was made of and that lead to the issue?
The 2013 also holds more gas. I guess that is good since it also leaks more gas.  ::)

i had no problems off the show room floor and the people i bought from spent and hour or more prepping it for my ride home of a couple hundred highway miles in the pouring rain! I reworked my clutch cable nuts after i got home because of the way they were set up, the cable was too tight! So, you were coasting in neutral down a hill and waving( just a gentleman's nod)? Interesting mental image. Then just no power or no rev or throttle loose or some sort of problem but the bike would go in gear? Hmmm?  I think i would have to ride it just to see what's goin' on! Your test drive with the bike was, fine?? Strangely odd, you ask me. What does "freshened the carb" mean?  There is no real info here to be honest! Did the dealer squirt "Fabreeze" on it?? Hey, buddy, you sure you didn't have the "choke" pulled up during the ride?  I'm just full of all kinds a crazy "smartassed" questions! Sorry, but, I just could not resist!!


Hey BeebBobE, 
Thank you for your input.
By freshened I was meaning that they removed any build up the bike may have accumulated I'm the carb since it was a 2016 model.

The choke was in as far as it could go.

Thank you for your input I will let everyone know what I find out.

You're the second owner that had problems immediately off the show room floor. I don't know how a bike that's known for being a basic and bullet proof - manufactured by company that been banging them out for years under the SYM badge and when licenced under Honda would have problems other than it wasn't prepped correctly by the dealer. Have them pick it up and prep it properly. Ridiculous.


Thank you ChairmanMaose, I will be making that call Monday. Have a great Sunday.
