That nut is threaded on the end of the crankshaft, so you're turning that with the nut

Behind it is the primary drive gear...

...which meshes with (and drives) the gear on the outer clutch basket.

Your clutch is still in the bike?

Put the transmission in gear and give it a shot  (rear wheel turns? Apply the rear brake)

A cloth shop rag can be put in between the primary drive gears on the crankshaft and clutch to lock them from turning. 

Although the Service Manual doesn't depict a washer behind the nut (with tabs bent against the nut to prevent unwanted loosening) ensure no such washer exists on your bike, as many bikes do use such a washer on clutch and oil spinner (primary gear) nuts. Just make sure you're not fighting the entire 🌎 trying to loosen that nut (your post stating the nut doesn't match the one in the Service Manual is making me paranoid...😜)

can you compare this  https://www.manualslib.com/manual/754560/Sym-Fiddle-Ii-125-Aw12w.html?page=182#manual to your scooters wiring harness?

Has this bike been crashed on the left side? (Possible bent shift shaft causing binding)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_mTFQbaT3Zc A rubber band? Hey, that's a very non-invasive way to start

I'm a caveman and the cold chisel and hammer technique has been good to me in the past

Beneath this cover with the stripped screws is a nut that'll need a special tool... Is this compatible with the Honda-ish clone you ride? https://www.amazon.com/Poweka-Clutch-Spanner-Socket-Honda/dp/B00CRH061W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1532842470&sr=8-2&keywords=20mm+clutch+socket

Give this one a watch https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vSunBRB6-r8

Key point...he doesn't loosen the bolts for the upper triple clamp...

If nothing has been bent by the crash, this will do the trick

I see H30W-C (LEC) at the top of the page. Is this the main part number for the entire fuel tank assembly? . Or do I order 1670A-LEA-100 FUEL PUMP ASSY and 1750-LEA-010 Fuel unit tank.... with these latter two, will I get all the hoses, nuts bolts, etc? I want to replace it all.
A lot of individual part numbers...

Number at the top is a model designation...it'll be on every page of the parts diagrams for this scooter.

Look at part number 6...  http://www.symcanada.com/_techSpecs/techCityCom/LH30W-C(F12)FuelTankAssy.pdf a box with parts 7 & 9 inside it. This is the only case on this diagram of having the option of buying multiple parts with a single part number.

To answer the question about parts being the same up to the present...(I don't know what changes were made 2016 and newer, but your scooter is a 2009 and before the engine changes in 2016 that bumped displacement a little and horsepower a lot)

Also I found out that SYM was bought out by Lance corporation?

Nope...SYM makes 1,000,000 bikes per year and Lance makes 0. Lance scooters are rebadged bikes made by other companies. From 2009 to the present, Lance scooters have been made by SYM (Chinese companies prior to that)

I would cut to the chase and call Alliance (the US importer of your scooter and under the same roof as Lance)  https://www.alliancepowersports.com/contact.html

You can Google 'SYM parts list' and there you'll find parts diagrams and part numbers for your scooter....(Googles part numbers for gas tank and fuel pump...🤐)

Call Alliance. Cam has a business that ships parts from Taiwan, for a reason. Wish I could find that article where it mentions that Alliance has removed parts from complete, brand new units (making the scooters unsellable for the meantime) in order to get a customers bike back on the road.

SYM is a big player... https://www.alliancepowersports.com/about.html Bet the farm that parts availability in other markets is a whole other ballgame

  I have looked at the Valkyrie and the Fury at various times in the past

If I ever feel the urge to buy a Fury....it will be called a Stateline...😜 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=avDS39Pahf4 ...just a little less rake/wheelbase

If they ever introduce that model here 🇺🇸 they'll rebrand it as a Lance and call it the 'PCH' https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=x0wtbCt2VTw

RV250 / Re: NO tail lights?
« on: June 27, 2018, 03:57:54 PM »
Not saying to pick O'Reilly or this specific test light, but..for a few 💵 you can test and eliminate the possibility that your taillight issue is that and not something further up the line... https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/performance-tool-4601/tools---equipment-16488/electrical-16813/electrical-tools---testers-17517/afdb57046dd5/performance-tool-12-volt-electrical-tester/w2975c/4613760?q=12+volt+current+tester&pos=0

You're not too far from Battle Ground, WA...I remember that town (relatives lived there) having less than 2,000 population and zero traffic lights...were you in the same area when Mount St. Helens blew its top?

2009 RV250 leds rear lights.  Brake lights work just fine but no tail lights?  Any ideas; only thing I found on site was years ago.......... everything else works fine headlights, turn signals, four way flashers.  But no tail lights at all.

Help..............

Well, the LED's for the running light and brake light are the same...correct? So, the LED's are fine, as they light up when you apply the brakes.

The running light is dimmer than the brake light because that wire (very likely) has a resistor on it (lowering the voltage to give contrast) the brake wire doesn't. At some point there are 2 positive wires in the wiring harness connected to the taillight (1 for running light and 1 for the brakes) and there's likely a problem with the wire/resistor for the running light.

Any way for you to test for continuity (possiblity that wire connector is loose or resistor blown) with the taillight assembly still mounted?

Granted, ATL highways are notoriously dangerous; I think we have twice the national rate of motorcycle fatalities.

That sounds like compliance to Guideline #1 of the Georgia Guidestones...

sounds like a weak battery (enough to sound the horn/make the starter solenoid partially engage (CLICK), but not enough to turn the starter motor/engine) check the battery with a voltmeter.

check for loose/corroded connections at the battery, ground and solenoid (just follow both battery cables to their first destination)while you're at it

Stock pilot jet looks like a 40

Looks like SYM only sells the carburetor as a complete unit (Install Dual Weber's 🙃)

Eyeballing the pilot jet on the YouTube video of the SYM Wolf posted above and comparing the image on Amazon... Your mileage may vary😜

Take your pilot jet to a local (any Japanese brand..Hell, didn't Harley Davidson use Keihin carburetors..yep...size 40 jets..nope🙄) dealer and hand it to the counter dude (seems like Keihin and Honda were almost synonymous in the olden days)

And...since you're a VW guy... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ow0xABGHRw0  I saw this car going down the road and thought something was familiar and odd at the same time.
