Citycom 300 / Re: Citycom 300 running costs in Hong Kong over 5 years.

Glad to hear you're still bumping around.   Not a lot of action here either.  Things are mostly closed, so I tend to take the long way to the grocery store.  If things go as expected it should start loosening up around here in a few weeks.  We'll see.

LiFePo4  batteries are probably great where you are.
Their weakness is cold temperatures, not really even that cold by my standards, so I use an AGM battery & keep it on a tender, but I suspect that'd be a bit tough if you're parking on the street.

Nice.  The CGs are magic on this bike IMHO. 
I'm curious about the Pirelli Angel's too, but just got a new CG for my rear so apparently ain't that curious.

I didn't know postmates let ya use a scooter.
What's your setup on the bike? 
Pics would be nice, but ya can't upload 'em to the site, you have to host them elsewhere then post 'em here.

Hi,

I haven't had any trouble with bulbs, although I did replace the original headlight unit with some relays so I could use LEDs.

The Wuhan pneumonia virus has meant the CC has been parked outside, rarely used for 2.5 months now as I work from home. I charged up the battery once during this time but it seems that was not enough and the CC refused to start on a journey home from the supermarket. I left plenty of time between starting attempts so I know it wasn't "flooded" and I thought it must either be the battery or stale fuel.

I got the bus home, took the battery out of the Ninja ( they are identical types - except the Ninja has a LiFePo4 lithium iron phosphate battery ) and went back to the CC to first try a replacement battery - started instantly. So, not stale fuel but an underused battery.

I charged and tested the battery - it charges up fine and hits 12.6V fifteen minutes after the charger is turned off. It should be 12.8V to be a-okay, so it is a little old after five years.

A new LiFePo4 battery is $45 here so that adds US$9 to the annual cost.

 Currently(april 2020) there is a Taida 167cc kit on ebay that is supposed to fit the SYM Wolf.  Never installed, and marked down to less than1/2 price.  $90

My problem is that most of them are too large. Have considered buying a cheap one to cut and fiberglass to proper proportions.

OK, so apparently that is for the early model with three gauges on the cluster. Still would like to see some fairings folks have used though!

Hey all, I've been toying with the idea of a small front faring and found this]https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sym-Wolf-Legend-2005-Tachometer-Casing-New-et-37010-b3t-010-/233096880346]this on eBay.  I didnt know there was an official SYM product, has anyone used on or have pics of it installed.  As far as I can tell this should fit the 150?

If anyone has experience with other fairings, pics/details are welcome!
