Symba / Re: Symba Carburetor Jets and Air Fuel Screw Information
« Last post by vintagegarage on November 21, 2020, 07:03:32 PM »
The short answer is no, but there is a longer answer.

Scooter Dynasty still has new OEM Symba carbs at:

https://www.scooterdynasty.com/carburetorforsymsymba.aspx,

but they do not show a rebuild kit.  When I was looking for the specially shaped Symba fuel filter and was unable to find one, I emailed Vince at Scooter Dynasty, and he was able to locate one, and ship it to me, even though he didn't have it listed on his web page.  You could try sending him an email at their contact page and see if he can get a genuine SYM rebuild kit.

The Kawasaki B7F carburetor for the KFX50 ATV is a very similar carb.  We already know it has a different idle air bleed screw than that in the Symba carb, but it would seem likely that parts like the bowl gasket, and various o-rings might be the same.  Compare the blow up photo of the BF7 carb to your Symba carb and make sure that it looks the same to you.  All of the parts for the Kawasaki KFX50 ATV carb are available from all of the online parts dealers, plus your local Kawasaki dealer, and don't cost much if you find they don't work.    Here is one link to an online parts house, partzilla is another:

Symba / Re: Symba Carburetor Jets and Air Fuel Screw Information

Vintagegarage, I'm curious if in your work restoring Symbas if you've found any sort of carb rebuild kit for the Symba. I feel like my carb could use a cleaning, but I'm reluctant to pull it apart without a source for near O-rings and such should I need them. I've had some other O-rings (like the one on the oil screen cover) need to be replaced, which makes me think if I open up the carb, some of those rubber parts will need replacing also.

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.

RV300 / Fuse in the Starter solenoid
« Last post by Wilddoc on November 17, 2020, 03:55:58 AM »
Thanks for accepting me on the Forum
I do most of my own repairs om my bikes.
The Battery sign started appearing after I started the Scooter. Started fine
This started after my grandchild pushed the Starter button while engine was running. Looked and found the 30 amp Fuse on the solenoid fused.
Replaced it but it immediately fused again as soon as I connected the Battery.
Can it be the Solenoid or is it another problem?
Tested the solenoid with 12V battery and it is making a good Clicking sound.
I can go and buy a new Solenoid but just want to know if the problem is some where else.

A mite nippy around here too Sy,
Picked up some battery power gloves, but since it's raining all the time can't say I've put any miles on to speak of.
The HD200's up for a bit of maintenance anyway, so what I've done has been on my Burgman.
Hoping things dry out, but sounding like a cold wet winter this year so likely not much action until spring.

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.

HD200 / Lifespan of DP Sliders
« Last post by Tromper on November 16, 2020, 09:56:58 PM »
Hi folks,

Just kinda curious, what kind of lifespan are ya seeing out of your DP sliders?

I'm getting a bit of what feels like a drive train shudder at certain speeds/rpm & have about 9k miles on the current set.
Since I'm due to pull it all apart and clean things up I figger I'll drop a new belt in and replace them, probably initially with the old 16g's I have around somewhere that I put a thousand miles or so on before dropping a gram.

Thanks in advance.

Wherever the kill switch is, it's red and obvious. Move the switch and try to start the scoot. If needed  corrosion on the switch.toggling the switch back and forth can clear up some

Symba / Re: Symba Carburetor Jets and Air Fuel Screw Information
« Last post by vintagegarage on November 16, 2020, 07:11:45 AM »
First, it might be that I am the only one watching this thread who still has a Symba, but I will try to answer your questions.

1. Your first question is unanswerable without more details.  When you say, change the Jets, you need to be more specific.  What were the size of your old jets, and what are the size of your new jets?  When you say adjust the AF ratio, do you mean by screwing the idle mixture air bleed screw in or out, or do you mean changing the air to fuel ratio at speed by changing the ratio of the main jet to the slow jet?  If your question is, do I need to change the setting of the idle mixture air bleed screw if I change the main jet to a non-stock size, the answer may be yes, if you want a smooth idle.  The setting of the idle mixture screw should have no impact on the problem you describe, since your problem is not at idle.

2.  The 75-23013-Y001 doesn't fit any of my Symba carbs, so if you find someone who says it does, you need to get more information from them.  Also, I don't think is possible to solder the screw in place, so I am not sure what you mean by that.  Many had epoxy put on them at the factory.  As the previous post says, the 75-23013-Y001 screw fits the Yamaha ATV carb which is very similar to the Symba carb.  If you really want to know what is what, remove your air bleed screw and compare it to the photo in the previous post.  Please report back what you find.

Good luck on your trip on the airline highway.. please report back on how it went, with photos..
