After a couple of rain filled days the clouds finally parted and i went for a run around on the Silverwing, just 20miles and a slight drizzle, on coming home i decided to do the same run on the Sym. All running okay( engine warning light still on). My wife and i had our coronovis vaccination shots last night ( Pfizer) apart from slight headache, no problems. We are still in Lockdown, no real problem for us.

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.

That's the problem isn't it Tromper. You cannot see the wear on the clutch, belt, sliders etc until you take things apart. I was out for a little ride around today although it was foggy, and snow in some areas, cold, but only just above freezing, so not that bad.

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.

How nice to hear from you Aexhop2001. I often wondered how you were, with this virus and all, good to hear you are well and still enjoying your cruisym. With the things you do, the bigger bike might suit you better. I have been using my Silverwing 600 a bit more recently, and i have to be careful as it has double the engine power of the Cruisym. I will soon be doing the 30000km service on my cruisym, i have the oil, airfilter, a new belt and a new set of rollers ready to fit. It looks like we will soon be having some snow ,so, that might stop me getting out as much. Anyway glad you are okay, stay safe.

Hi Tromper, i have heated handlebar grips and i also have Keis heated inner gloves and boot liners, but i do not like the cables running down my arm and legs so , rarely use them. It is still in the fifies (F) but set to get a lot colder in the near future. Hope you stay well and keep safe. I have been on my Silverwing 600 lately, just to keep everything loosened up and running free.

I would start with basics, only two things needed Spark and fuel. If you take spark plug out is it wet ? if so, fuel is getting through. Take spark plug out, keep plug lead on, Lay spark plug against metal part of engine ,tun ignition on and see if there is a spark. At least with this method you will know whether it is electrical or fuel that is the problem.

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.

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.

Yesterday I had a180km ride, it is certainly getting colder. I have a Keis heated vest that I wear in winter, not cold enough for it yet. I normally wear, base layer, windproof layer then outer jacket and trousers ( both with quited liner). The Sym is my number one bike now and is a pleasure to ride, the only things that annoy me are the clock is twenty four hours I would prefer twelve and the speedo main is in KM.

You need a "C" spanner to adjust suspension units, I found my units so hard to turn I gave up, and left them on factory settings, you get used to them.

We are having very strange weather One day constant rain, the next, warm, and sunny. I had a 180km ride out yesterday, to Fleetwood, a fishing town on the coast of Northwest England. A very pleasant day out. On the way home, on a stretch of a country lane cruising along at fifty m.p.h, the road was two feet deep in water, in a place ,fortunately the cars coming the other way gave way, so I did not get drenched by their bow wave. The Sym never missed a beat and soon dried out.

The last few days it has turned really cold. Heat in the sun but very cold wind. The iridium plug seems to have cured the loss of revs at tickover. I have now put my handlebar covers on and wearing my winter gloves. I keep a check on fuel cosumption, and i average 95 M.P.G.
