VS125 / Re: SYM VS125 Roller and belt sizes?
« on: April 02, 2012, 03:01:12 AM »
Dr. pulley sliders. I put in 14 gram ones as I bought them when I still gpad the 125 engine in. Will go up to 16 grams when I get around to it. Take off is nice, but top has suffered, struggles to get to 100km/h, indicated, but that is not an issue for me.

Thanks Skadamo, the last time I tried to visit the site with my laptop, norton stopped it and it looked like it was my computer that was attacking the site. I downloaded kaspersky virus removal tool and ran it through my computer, but it came up clean.

I have just put the sliders in. The rollers are 18x14 and 14 grams, sorry but I did not measure the belt.

I think the size is indeed 18x14 and the weight is 14.5 grams. If you buy the Dr. Pulley sliders, the 18x14 would be the ones you want. When I finally get around to putting mine in, I will let you know how they are.

I never suspected it being norton, norton warned me of computer threats on this site.

When I started this thread I was redirected when I posted. My Norton 360 doesn't stop it, just give a caution warning.
Maybe Skadamo can have a look and see what he can do with it. For me it is happening every time I come to the sit and even when clicking to read a thread.

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?

With my vs, both 125 and 150, the lights are wired to the battery. The battery in my 150 is dead from sitting too long between starts and no riding.

A small point of interest, last night I was trying to start my 150 that does not get used. It hasn't been started for a couple of months and the battery was dead. Even by using the kick starter the lights were lighting up, so if your charging system is ok, you should see them light up as you kick the engine.

G'day MOTOC, I am a few k's west of you, in Whyalla S.A. :) I bought the VS second hand from a Kawasaki dealer in Adelaide. I was looking for a bike to run to work on, but after riding a Kymco ZX50 for a year or so I was still leaning to a scooter for the flat floor, to be able to carry gear on. After working out what I not only wanted but needed I settled for a scooter. After a couple of drives to Adelaide to see what was going second hand I saw this one and bought it.
PHIPSD: This one seemed to be sluggish compared to the Kymco Super 8 that I rode, but I was happy to put up with that. Until,,,, I saw an ad for a 2011 VS 150, with 1,700kms, for $650. It was a write off, so no going back on the road.
I bought it for spares, and to get the engine, which after putting the engine in, I see it is just the nature of these engines to be a little lax, but that is also after riding a heavily modded two stroke. I am used to this scooter now and am accepting of the power delivery, though I am about to try some DR. Pulley sliders in it, 14 grams which is what the stock rollers are. You are right, 17,000 kms on the 125 engine is not a lot, it still runs as good as the 150 with 2,000 kms. With the 150 scoot, the right hand front indicator light is broken and the right hand mirror is gone, but otherwise is all intact apart from scratches. The engine mount bracket is bent, which has the engine at an unusual angle.
Sid. :)

I believe these are a d/c type CDI, meaning you will need some charge in the battery to run the engine. If it kick started you had enough there to fire the CDI, but if your generator is not charging, it would have drained the battery down until it could no longer run the engine. Try charging the battery and see if that will start it.

The dealer I bought my scooter from (second hand) had to replace the battery and when I saw how they bent the panel out to get access to the battery, I thought that it looked too easy to break it, so I just take the cover off all together. Takes a few minutes and no risk of breaking it.
When taking off the panel, after taking the screws out, don't pull the panel out, just hold it firm and slide it back to unhook the tabs, then it will lift away freely.
9:40 AM now, no sleep yet.

Remove the r/h side passenger footrest and the body panel behind it, that will give you clear access to the battery box, remove the two nuts that hold the cover on and the cover will come off. You can get the cover off without removing the body panel, but that will risk bending the panel too far.
