Symba / Re: Clutch
« on: February 14, 2021, 03:43:10 PM »
There are numerous DIY Youtube clips of converting Symba( well..clones.) to Lever operated clutch.Most are in Tagalog.Search for "Sym or Rusi Semiautomatic clutch to conversion to manual".Videos are self explaining so language is not a problem.Ask me if you need help.

Symba / Symba Clutch repair
« on: January 30, 2021, 11:42:24 AM »
The Symba has a simple robust clutch system that is shared with many Chinese  motorcycles like Rusi, Lifan, etc.The service  manual is a good guide with adequate pictures, but nothing is better than an actual video. I have come across Youtube videos showing not only how to disassemble  but also how to replace the clutch linings when worn, as well as how to convert the clutch system to manual( yes, with a left hand  cable actuated lever) Only one problem: none of them are in English.But, some are done so well you dont even need audio.if you are interested, let me know.I am actually putting together an English version .I am also trying to source parts from Asia, which are much cheaper.

Symba / Symba conversion to manual / hand operated clutch

Frequent complaint of newbie owner as well as some long term ones is the jerk occurring when downshifting especially foing up  hill.I have watched numerous Youtube videos of Sym centrifugal clutches being easily converted to manual.I wonder if there is interest in such here in US.?

Symba / Re: Changing Tire on Symba
« on: December 20, 2020, 10:12:37 PM »
I just bought a 2010 Symba and first on my list were oil change and rear tire change.I want to share tips for rear tire change .If you work alone..get a foot long 3-4 in thick board of wood for the center stand so the tire clears the rear...secure the bike to this wood with straps or hooks so it doesnt fall to its side.I also locked the front brake w/ a cord for safety.Fill a squirt bottle w/ water & dishsoap solution.use liberally as lube when dismounting tire.Use tirespoons an inch longer than the spokes so you can tuck this in the drum. I re- used the tube, but  made sure the rim strips are ok.then i  applied talcum powder& inflated a little to avoid pinching.Now is a good time to inspect cush dampers and brake shoes & grease axle.I did not care to balance(40mph?)  but made sure the tire rotation mounted correctly.

Just got mine a 2010 a week ago.So glad I did not get the C70 passport I was eyeing.Based on stories..it was  struggling to get to 40mph. This Symba goes to 50mph on the flat .and I weigh 195lbs!
