SYM Joyride / Re: Yellow engine light flashes when reaches running temperature
« Last post by Wolfie on October 31, 2020, 11:14:20 AM »
I have the exact same problem buddy, it's been flashing for the last 2 months, I know it isn't low on engine oil because I keep it topped up weekly, I have been told it could be 1 of 2 things, either a bad connection or water gathering in the connector, try spraying with WD40 or renewing connector,,, I have yet to do mine but as it is off the road for winter there's not much point in doing it now..Hope this helps Buddy.

SYM Joyride / Sym Wolf SB125 N Rear sprocket
« Last post by Wolfie on October 31, 2020, 10:46:36 AM »
Hi all.
Can anyone help me out here,  I bought my Sym wolf SB 125 N a few months back and the rear sprocket is chewed to hell, when I took the back wheel out I found that it hasn't got any cush drive in the wheel hub so, my question is! does anyone know where I can buy a rear sprocket and cush drive from as everywhere I look online no one seems to sell this kind of sprocket or cush drive It's been off the road now for at least a month due to this problem?
I hope you guys can point me in the right direction...Many thanks.

General Discussion / Are scooters more prone to rear wheel slide than motorbikes?
« Last post by Thoppa on October 31, 2020, 12:16:16 AM »
Hi,

I've noticed my Citycom scooter is more prone to a rear loss of grip than the front. In fact, the front feels so unloaded it never feels anywhere near losing grip, but I can get the back to move around with some deliberately aggressive control. I wonder if this is true for scooters generally? It certainly feels quite different to a motorcycle in this regard.

I know it isn't the tyres - front and rear match so they have the same grip, and pressures are correct, both warmed up, running on the same surface (of course). It is, of course, harder to get the Pirelli Angel to slide compared to Maxxis but that's the coefficient of friction, nothing else. There's a discussion of why contact patch is largely irrelevant and it is weight that offers traction on this page https://www.stevemunden.com/friction.html

My Citycom seems typical for a scooter with a strong rear weight bias - 77kg front 107kg rear is roughly 40/60 distribution. So the rear should have more grip, yet it feels the opposite, with the front being more secure. Maybe it's the huge sprung weight of the engine assembly at the rear that has an effect?

Has anyone else had this experience? Is it a thing?

I've been riding for 30+ years - learned to do stoppies and get my knee down on sports 600s, wheelie and slide on a supermoto, so I find it hard to believe I'm imagining it.

The CC is my first scooter - just hit 70,000kms, 66,000 of which are my use, and she's still running well, although not as well as 40,000 ago. Top speed is much lower and fuel consumption is higher.

General Discussion / 2016 HD 200 Gas Tank Neck Warpage
« Last post by oldrenewbie on October 28, 2020, 12:24:28 AM »
Gas leakage at the tank filler cap is a result of warpage at the connection from the neck to the cap.  In my case (2016 HD 200) the top of the tank neck was like a football.  The cap is in perfect shape but the plastic tank neck neck was out of round = no seal and gas leakage.   

Contact SYM USA Alliance Powersports Inc., and explain your issue thereof:

1-951-361-9000

Ask for Simon


I have previously filed a complaint re the above issue for the SYM HD 200 with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) complaint number 314503.  1-888-327-4236.

Please do not try the attempts to make your gas tank not leak at the filler neck.  Contact the above asap.

I hear ya.

I live in the land of SAE measurements, but have a mild preference for metric, but only because it's annoying to keep two sets of tools and most of the world is metric.  Dividing by 8 or 10 doesn't make that bit a difference to me.
Not much to do with a mechanical unless you want to take it apart and redo the gearing then chance the face.
Lot of work for limited gain, but possible.

The Cruisym does not have an electronic Speedo, just the large dial. In the UK we calculate in miles, all road signs and destinations are in miles. Old duffers like me use miles, and feet and inches, we have now left the EU, that was the only reason we were obliged to use Km and thier  units of measurement.

If you really want MPH/Miles (Dunno why, but sure why not?) & if that's the same cluster that they use on Citycom there's an off chance that something like this might work on yours.
Dunno what they exact way to do it on the SYM would be but that's pretty much identical to how it's switched on my Suzuki.
