Well heck Sy, glad you're OK.  Sorry that the bike is not.
I have not heard of a S'wing having notable electrical issues other than yours; albeit I don't track them a lot.

A backup bike is a wonderful thing.

I suspect if it looks like it'd fit it would.  SYM tends to use very off the shelf parts for a lot of stuff.
This is a good thing.

Source for SYM specific parts? Scooter Dynasty & a couple others sell some.  Google works.
for instance.
Other than that Dealers of course, & Ebay will often snag a good price but is spotty by it's nature

HD200 / Re: Front and rear dummy turn signals
« on: June 07, 2021, 04:22:08 PM »
The only way to access the front euros and the flasher is to pull the top front plastic.
That's five screws.  Four from the back, one underneath in the front of the plastic.
You also will have to pull your mirrors, and of course remove the stalks.
I recommend using something along these lines to pull the plastic.
I mostly use the middle one to gently pop it apart.  SYM uses OK plastic vs. the Chinese bikes, but it's still seven years old and it doesn't get more flexible with time.
Was the flasher I just put in the second bike.  With all 8 lights aka 4 at a time going, it works and has a click.  Not sure about how it'd do with just the two LED.

A quick edit just in case someone searches this.
All of the OEM light sockets are RY10W incandescent.  Those are 10 watt bulbs and not exceptionally bright.
All but the front two worked with BA15S, but the front Euro/non-stalk blinkers are BAU15S.
They will fit larger bulbs.  You're on your own for the heat from those causing issues.  I replaced 'em with LEDs so just not an issue at under 5 watt draw on each.
I did find a flasher that has a click and did work with lights in all 8.  Should work with 4 but didn't try.

Just converted all 4 to LED on a 2008 and about to do it on a 2010.  So far so good.
Yours is probably identical in these regards, but possibly some differences.

- Removing the N. American Pods is potentially a ticket due to N. American turn signal width requirements, but is very easy to do if you want.
2 bolts each and tape off the wires.

- The Eurasian lights in the front and the back are already wired and just need lights.  If yours are the same as mine (likely)
Fronts are BAU15S (150 degree pins). Rears are BA15S (180 degree pins) - See below. Bulb types are listed on the housing.
You can use an 1156 for the rear, but factory is an RY10.  It's not real bright but look nice.  My LED's ain't as pretty but are insanely brighter.
I forget the front's OEM bulb name, but it's on the lens.  I just used LEDs.

- If you put in LEDs you'll need an electronic flasher.  The SYM take a round 2 pin one. 
You will lose the click, & will have an option of a silent flash or a very loud beep.  I tried the latter and ended up cutting the relay open and pulling the beeper.  Way too loud for me.


Just recently picked up a 2014 HD 200 Evo and was trying to find information on changing the US style turn signals to the dummy signals that work overseas. I’ve done a search and have seen people add LEDs to the rear tail light to get those signals working, but haven’t seen anything about the front. I am pretty certain that the clear lens in the handlebar cover can be converted to turn signals (and assume that is how they are in Europe and Asia). Then the US lollipop signals in the front and rear can be removed. Would anyone have more information about this?

Maybe the switch in the handlebar?
Do you grip the same brake all the time when starting?  If so did you try the other brake as well?

Maybe it just doesn't feel right unless there's a little grit in the oil.

What tires ya using these days Sy?
The OEM on the HD were definitely designed for longevity.  Solid as a rock.  Mine probably have their original tread to this day unless they've been recycled.  I replaced them cuz they gripped like rocks as well.

Although I booked my Sym in for it's first test, I decided to take it to a local testing station yesterday, it passed. I then decided to take the rear wheel off and replace the rear tyre. To my surprise the wheel came off , no problem, so I await to hear when my tyre comes in, so they can fit it. A rear tyre seems to last 10,000km.

A few states do inspections of sorts.  Mine is not one of 'em.
Kinda try to keep the bike intact and running anyway.

Excellent.  You were probably below the critical loss of skin & cursing levels the first time.
Now smile and enjoy the ride.

Depends on how much ya like the bike, and how much replacing it with something you'd like would cost along with the understanding that a newer bike would be less hassle in general until it ages out too.
Personally I'd at least explore it a bit since the HD really is kind of a special model that ain't made anymore.

59mph sound a bit optimistic, but 40 is definitely a bit low.
When it cuts out does it seem to hit a wall and the engine kills?  Does it start sputtering?  Do the revs seem high?
I'm guessing no flats on the rollers, but when you checked your belt did you measure the width or ? 

Beyond that:
Check for cracks in your vacuum system, including intake boot, & PAIR, check your spark plug & wire.
Probably check your valves since you'll have it apart at least somewhat at that point.
Check your air filter.
That should cover the basics, so you have a good place to start.

Check for a kickstand switch being sticky, & maybe try both brakes (one at a time works) in case the one you usually use is having a bad switch day?

Sym Symphony / Re: Symphony 200 belt dimensions
« on: April 07, 2021, 01:04:20 PM »
If you have a link for the manufacturer or at least the product I'd might be able to dig it out of there, but beyond that your guess is as good as mine.

So I once again need to replace the Belt in my Symphony 200i 2016 (that's a new on I bought).

I found a replacement belt with the following marks on it "860 19.7 28", while I know the original part should read "860 19.7 28 T".

Do I really need the one with the "T" on it? what does the "T" mean?

Congrats, & well done.

There is no cost for the shot, but the outfits giving them will hit your insurance for some kind of charge if ya have it.
Far as how it's being done, up to about the middle of this month it's varied by state.  Mine, Washington, has notably lagged.  Political BS mostly, but some incompetence as well.

Personally I'm set for my first shot this week..annoyingly found that via an alternate route I could have done this last month, but as the French cest....La vie.
