VS125 / Fuel gauge died.
« on: June 29, 2012, 04:03:05 AM »
After work last night I noticed the fuel gauge was below empty, was about quarter on the way to work. Filled up on the way home, but still no life. I checked the resistance at the wires at the gauge, was ok so replaced the gauge and works fine. I had noticed over the last few months that when filling the tank, the gauge would onlw go to about 1/4" below full. It is good to have a parts bike, but is this available as a spare part or do you have to buy the complete cluster? I guess the next one will be the float in the tank. This VS125 is either 2007 or 2008. If it had a trip meter it wouldn't be so bad.

Does anyone know where I could find an online parts fiche? I can find Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kymco but can't find one for Sym.

General Discussion / Getting redirected when trying to get to Sym forum

G'day all, lately when trying to get to sym forum I have been getting redirected. I thought this might have been a problem with my computer, but I see it does it with both computers and last night, I saw a caution from Norton security saying there were two computer threats on this site, mentioning a redircting. Has anyone else had this? What should I be doing about it?

VS125 / Top Box on a VS 125?
« on: November 21, 2011, 08:49:50 PM »
G'day all, has anyone put a top box on a VS 125? If so, did you use the existing grab rail and drill out the preformed holes, or did you use a bracket that replaced the grab rail? any pics you have of the install would be a help also.
i have a Givi e30 box on the way, just wondering about fitting options.

VS125 / Kick start mechanism
« on: November 18, 2011, 09:10:41 PM »
G'day all, the Sym VS 125 I bought a few weeks ago had a partially seized kick starter. This was not really a problem as the battery is new, but I do like things to work properly. Today, I swapped the clutches between the 150 and 125, (putting them back to their correct engines after a trial). While I had the cover off the 125 I disassembled the kick starter and cleaned and greased it. The difference is amazing. That unit was a 2008 model and is now better than my 2011 unit, so i guess that will be done next. Clean and lube, big difference and the best part was that I had no hassle what so ever getting the spring back in. :)

G'day all, I am new to Sym and to this forum. I have just bought a sym Vs 125, it seems to be a great little scooter. My main reason for purchasing this is for running to work and back. This is my second scooter, my previous one was a Kymco ZX50, which I had heavily modded, however, this one won't be modded in that way. I have replaced the engine with an engine from a VS 150, not a whole lot more power, but just enough to make it worth the exercise.
The scooter has 17,000 km on the clock, the 150 engine came from a scoot with only 1,755kms, so is a near new engine, should last a few years.
These scooters seem to be pretty well built, start and run easy and comfortable to ride. Before buying this one, I test rode a Kymco super 8 125, it was a lovely scoot, but there was not enough room for my feet and the seat sloped too much for my liking, but I must say it was the quickest scoot I test rode, the other was a Yamaha Cygnus X 125, so the VS125 was an easy choice in the end.
Anyway, hello to all from Australia.
