Syd, since you asked? I'll tell you exactly what I'm up to 8). My wife is Colombian born and has family in Bogota, Colombia. We've been studying the possibility of living there along with Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama. Small displacement bikes like the Symba are very popular down there which I really like. In fact, I've seen many Symba look alikes, which gave me the idea of bringing mine down. Come to find out that in Colombia for instance, you can't import any used vehicles. You can only import brand new ones and you must pay a tarrif equal to 90% of the original price! Proof of purchase required. Not to mention the shipping cost which is more than the bike! Governments do this because they want you to buy the vehicle in country and benifit the home economy. Retirement overseas has become a very viable option for many expats due to the low cost of living, affordable health care and high standard of living. That said, what does the internet have to do with what I said? I'm confused ????

Symba / 2015 Red Symba FOR SALE $1500.

So I've ranted on this forum that "I'll never sell my Symba!" Well, my wife burst my bubble. I've recently retired and she reminded me that we will be extensively traveling abroad with an eye on relocating. Taking Symba is cost prohibitive and not allowed in some countries. That said, New York/New Jersey area, red 2015 Symba, 1500 miles, great condition with Top box, front rack, FOR SALE! asking $1500 OBO. Message me if interested? I'll send pictures and any information requested.

Not happy about this, but I figure I can get another small bike wherever we end up.

Wow! Good thing I took care on the lose bolt immediately! My dampers where in fine shape so no worries there. Thanks for the heads up Campurvis!

Wow underboning! That some damage you sustained! I think my repair will hold nicely but did have a bit of a time getting the chain on correctly. Difficulty came about lining up the chain adjuster with notches on the swingarm. Could not get them both to align to same notch. When I tightened the main bolt the chain was too snug! Finally got it to where chain is an inch of play but one side is on 1st notch an other side is on 2nd notch. Tire looks aligned when spinning and no issues so far. Suggestions?

Symba / Clanking noise/sprocket bolts/parts
« on: August 31, 2019, 03:45:48 PM »
My bike was making a clanking noise and I was positive it was the chain. After adjusting chain it still made the noise. I consulted this forum and sure enough! It was a lose sprocket bolt! Well had to take the tire off, remove sprocket and hub! (I hope I remember where all these freaking nuts and bolts go :-[) Went out and got some blue loctite and appears that it will do the trick. Some have suggested to replace the hub, but I don't see a reason for doing that since mine is in fine shape. My point here is THANK YOU! to all of you who take the time to post your repairs and issues. Your contribution helps others to overcome these challenges and saves $$$! Also, appears that SCOOTER DYNASTY in Los Angeles has many Symba parts you can order online and will order whatever you need. There are thousands of these bikes in Asia and the WOW WOW uses many of same parts. That said, no worries about maintaining my mighty Symba in days to come!

Cool project! Wish I could help. Hope you locate one ;)

Like some here,  I've emailed Cam to inquire about parts with no response.  Appears he's no longer interested in Symbas. Does anyone have any leads on alternative sources?

Wow! Interesting question(s). Wish I could help but how about the famous couple ("UNDERBONONG THE WORLD") that traveled the world on  a Symba? If anyone knows? They will!  ;)

I could not agree more Pitty! The new Honda Super Cub looks very tempting but I've become very fond of my little Symba. I also enjoy maintaining and keeping it running. One day, I may have to sell it, but  will most likely give it to somebody close that will appreciate it. In the mean time, I'll  just keep riding the wind on my mighty little Symba! ;)
