Huh strange.
Your electronics must be fancier than in my HD200.

We had a light fall of snow today, but, i wanted to change the final drive oil ( last job of 30000km service)  so had a little runaround to warm the engine up, then changed the oil. Each time i change the final drive oil the engine warning light comes on, it did it again today. My theory is, the pressure drops in the final drive, and it takes a few rides to put pressure up again.

Ouch.  That'd best be made from gold & made by magic Taiwanese elves on a Thursday.
Hope this one doesn't do the same thing.

Just ordered it from dealer. $50. Yeah it happens time to time where i get into this issue, a simple knock on it with a metal will stop it from attempting to crank. But Iím definitely gonna replace it just in case.

I haven't had to replace on to date, so nope.
A thought might be to try to source one via a dealer since this doesn't seem to be a huge issue on these bikes <knock wood>.  Might well be the same 101 part but with cheap parts one of the first things to go is QC, so maybe (if lucky) a more expensive version of same has better QC, & that'll get it assuming there's not something odd going on with your bike that's burning these out.

I actually had an issue with the starter relay the next day. It got stuck choking even with the key turned off and completely out. i had to open up the seat and bang the starter relay for it to stop from getting stuck choking. I have replaced these before, they are pretty simple and cheap from Amazon. But i canít find a Ďgreatí one so i donít have to keep replacing it. Any ideas for a good one that will last long?

Been kinda meh here as well, but did do the rollers (sliders) and a new belt a couple weeks ago.
The bike had picked up a new funny vibration on accelleration so I'd parked it since I knew this was due despite it having been fine when I checked about 1k or so miles ago.
I found the old belt was coming apart & a chip in the clutch.  The clutch is still working fine, but with the chip I had doubts on longevity so I ordered a chinese knock off clutch off fleabay.
I'll try that out but will still have the old one to build out to a HiT clutch or something if the knock off ain't doing it.

I was nearly at 30,000km today so went for a short ride around ( in the rain). Got home and mileage at 30028km. Changed the engine oil and cleaned the oil filter. Put new air filter in and cleaned crankcase filter and crankcase breather pipe. Still to do ; final drive oil,  fit new drive belt and fit new set of rollers. Might wait for better weather to finish service.

Hey, I know this is an ancient thread, but on the off chance you're still out there, how'd this work out?
Did you wind up going to the OEM size (130mm) for the clutch (PN 201502) or did you stick with the 125mm size?

I got an error on playback message so tough to say.

Looks like a spike then back to reality, but up generally.
I know that in the U.S. bike sales overall are up, & suspect that may be true globally since folks are keeping off mass transit in droves due to the pandemic.

Kinda surprised me when I poked around and found a washer that matches the description.
and here
Not sure if that's gonna be right so would probably hit 'em up first. 
Lemme know whatcha find if ya do please.  No leaking, but I could use one for my top bolt too.

I haven't checked the bolts on mine but they didn't look real special.  Could have  weird thread or something I guess. kinda resembles 'em superficially but you'd really want to measure 'em and check the thread pitch to be sure.

I have damaged the washer and maybe the bolt that drains the gear oil by over tightening. Its leaking oil after riding, and I want to replace these parts.
Here is the question, since SYM parts don't exist for this, how do I find the correct washer type and bolt with the correct length / size?

This is the bolt that is by the rear wheel. See image of rear wheel vertical facing bolt.

Here are part numbers I THINK are the same, if that helps (It didn't help me)
8200-0182 Special Bolt 8mm
8200-2111 Special Bolt 8mm
8200-0511 Washer 8x17

A mite nippy around here too Sy,
Picked up some battery power gloves, but since it's raining all the time can't say I've put any miles on to speak of.
The HD200's up for a bit of maintenance anyway, so what I've done has been on my Burgman.
Hoping things dry out, but sounding like a cold wet winter this year so likely not much action until spring.

Just topped 28200 kms. Getting colder now, layering up no longer warm enough , time to get my Keis heated vest out again. Many clear sunny days in between the cloudy rainy days ,so a lot of good rides. The Sym is performing really well, I think it is well run in now, always get 90+ m.p. g.and a pleasure to ride. We are in "lockdown" again, so not suppose to leave home except to exercise, well riding is my exercise One other point is it uses no oil in between oil changes, I check oil level weekly.

HD200 / Lifespan of DP Sliders
« on: November 16, 2020, 09:56:58 PM »
Hi folks,

Just kinda curious, what kind of lifespan are ya seeing out of your DP sliders?

I'm getting a bit of what feels like a drive train shudder at certain speeds/rpm & have about 9k miles on the current set.
Since I'm due to pull it all apart and clean things up I figger I'll drop a new belt in and replace them, probably initially with the old 16g's I have around somewhere that I put a thousand miles or so on before dropping a gram.

Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Re: Bike died
« on: November 08, 2020, 06:34:36 PM »
I guess I'd start by doing a load test on the battery.
Had a battery go "pop" a while back on one of my HD200s.  It showed exactly the same symptom.
Tested & sho 'nuff dang thing died under load, but had enough to run lights.
Got a new battery and GTG.

Any help greatly appreciated.  So I just bought a 2009 citycom.300i had 1 mile.  Just crossed the 1000 mile mark.  I was riding yesterday and got off the interstate, i pulled into a turn lane and was double checking directions on my phone and the bike just died on me.  So I started looking at everything, I had the cover to the battery off, and I noticed the kill switch the batter had been switched over.  I think one of the tools I had underneath thr sweat did that while driving.  I corrected that, and I tried everything after to start the bike and it won't even try to turn over.  I have replaced the battery and, I checked all.the.fuses.nothing blown...but it will.not even attempt to turn iver.  I have headlights brake lights.and horn.  Can.someone please help .me

I hear ya.

I live in the land of SAE measurements, but have a mild preference for metric, but only because it's annoying to keep two sets of tools and most of the world is metric.  Dividing by 8 or 10 doesn't make that bit a difference to me.
Not much to do with a mechanical unless you want to take it apart and redo the gearing then chance the face.
Lot of work for limited gain, but possible.

The Cruisym does not have an electronic Speedo, just the large dial. In the UK we calculate in miles, all road signs and destinations are in miles. Old duffers like me use miles, and feet and inches, we have now left the EU, that was the only reason we were obliged to use Km and thier  units of measurement.

If you really want MPH/Miles (Dunno why, but sure why not?) & if that's the same cluster that they use on Citycom there's an off chance that something like this might work on yours.
Dunno what they exact way to do it on the SYM would be but that's pretty much identical to how it's switched on my Suzuki.
