I just had to order a fuel gauge float seal from a dealer 400 kilometres away. Putting the scooter on the back of the ute and taking it to them for repairs or service is not practical, or cheap. But aside from the service manuals, what about parts manuals so at least we in the never never can order parts on line from your dealers?

OK, I have found a site that has the exploded views, it does show a quite a few sym models, though unfortunately, it does not list part numbers. It is better than what I had previously though.

This sort of thing can assist us with ordering parts from a dealer as it will give us a better idea of what parts are able to be bought separately.
With regards to my earlier post, my wheels and all the other parts turned up. Big improvement on the bike. :)

If you go over to there are some people there that are quite knowledgable in the ZX50. If thebatman and zombie can't help, then noone can. :)

This is interesting as the key for my VS125 has a magentic section on the back to open the protective cover over the ignition switch. If you don't have the correct one, you can close the cover but not open it. Is the VS the only one with this system?

Beware scooter assassins, they will happily take your money, but when the parts are faulty they will not reply to emails.

Is the DD50 the same as the Honda Dio and Kymco ZX50?

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.

I am not on facebook. ;)

G'day Sharon, yes I would be interested in working either way, what area are you in?

I also have a Suzuki Boulevard C50, the alloy wheels for this model are not available in Australia. By using an online parts fiche, I was able to find the parts I needed to order to enable the fitting of the wheels when I bought them. I now have a pair of alloy wheels coming, with all the bits I need to fit them to my bike.
Hopefully, my next Sym purchase will be one for wrecking, I am after a frame for a parts scooter I have in my shed, (VS150 with the 125 engine from my other VS). There is a website, I think it is called oem parts, they have online fiches, but they don't show anything under 10 years old, so no vs.

Nope, didn't find any link to vs parts. The page with all the models doesn't have the vs either.

How about an engine hanger for a sym vs125? New or second hand as long as it is not damaged.

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.

Do you sell sym scooters?

VS125 / Re: SYM VS125 Roller and belt sizes?
« on: May 04, 2012, 05:35:57 AM »
A correction, the 14 gram rollers must have been from the 150 engine. I changed drive bosses yesterday and the two sets of rollers I have are 14 grams and 10 grams. So it seems that the 125 might be 10 gram rollers.
I will check in the manual when I can.
