Wolf Classic 150 / hard shifting?
« Last post by pdxGary on June 07, 2021, 01:14:54 PM »
Iíve had my 2013 Wolf for a few weeks now, gone a little over 100 miles on it and Iím enjoying the hell out of it, but Iíve noticed sometimes it doesnít want to shift, particularly into 5th but sometimes also 4th. I thought maybe it was a low fluid issue but from what I understand the gearbox and engine share the same oil(?) and that level is definitely fine. Anybody have any ideas on what the issue could be? Thanks in advance!

Frustrating eh? But I don't think anywhere gets all the models on SYM's site? I know UK, Taiwan and China get a limited range too - I tried to get a Citycom in Taiwan on a trip a few years ago but it's export only. The Hong Kong importer here briefly had two 16"wheel models 12 years ago but they didn't sell well so they stopped importing them and refused to order a new one for me.

Hong Kong has the TL500, Cruisym 300, Joymax Z 300, Joyride 200, Jet 180 (cos it's made in China) and DRG 160. It seems 3 of these models have been refreshed/replaced - the TL500, Cruisym and Joymax Z - and the Z+ is now available in Europe but it's not available here. We don't have Euro5 and SYM said we won't get the Z+ for another 3 to 9 months - that sounded to me like they'll keep selling the Z until stocks are fully depleted. 

Since my Citycom is running well again tho, I don't mind the wait. I'd buy another CC if I could but I simply cannot get one. I've just come to accept it. One of the reasons I'll get the Z+ is that the Z is one of the models sold in China so I'll be able to get parts without getting ripped off by the importer here.

I have a feeling that one of Carter Bros. troubles -there were many - was that they carried most every model SYM made. After "the fire" and the change to Alliance, the lineup is limited and will stay that way, emissions or not.

I thought the Wolf was more CB 125 than CG 125.
Maybe Cam can clear this up for us ....

Great info thank you! I didnít know the fronts were already wired! Thatís awesome. Iíll start the same way you did by getting the bulbs for the fronts and seeing how they are with the US oem signals. Is it easy to access the front euro signals to add bulbs, or does the plastic handlebar fairing need to come off? Coming from motorcycles I donít really need the clicking sound with the signals, something I never needed prior to scooters so that wonít be a deal breaker for me. Thanks again!

Has the US adopted Euro 5 standards or its own version of them? If not, then I guess it's likely it'll be the main market for the Euro 4 versions, while Europe gets all the refreshed Euro 5 models this year. Euro 5 came into effect for existing models 6 months ago I think, and the SYM range has been refreshed for this, as with many motorcycle companies, so Europe has been getting a load of refreshed versions of existing machines this year.

The US importer shows the Citycom, the Fiddle III, the Mio 50 and the Wolf. Been that way for some time.

rang motogb the uk importer and aked if there was any intention to bring the Z+ or cruisym alpha to the UK, they said no at the moment unless SYM agree an attractive price agreement


Good news - the Z+ is available for order on the MotoGB website - the 300 is £4999 +OTR - blue, white, silver, or black. How does that compare with the price of the Z?

The dealer here in HK still doesn't know, so I contacted SYM directly in Taiwan and they said last quarter this year, maybe first quarter next year. Um.

 There is a link on-site referencing the Honda manual for the CG125.  The Wolf is based on that, and the Honda service manual should have instructions.

Welcome to the forum!

What are you planning to use the scooter for - urban rides? commuting? long distances? How much does gas cost where you are? I'm asking because I'm a fan of the 300s - an ideal compromise imo, unless gas is very cheap where you are.

all the best,
