Symba / Maximum current draw from battery & stator/alternator?
« Last post by scoh on April 25, 2021, 09:41:35 PM »
Hi all!

I'm trying to find replacements for two LED headlights that I added to my Symba, which won't stress the stator electronics too much. I had both lamps running off the battery to get a constant current brightness that didn't depend on RPM. Each headlight drew 0.25 Amps. (They really added visibility, from the behaviour of drivers ahead of me). Unfortunately both have shorted out this season, after 5 years... a short life for LEDs but I'm thinking the constant vibrations contributed that.

These are the discontinued and shorted headlamps:
KW-222, aka DRL-CW3-BM2 @,-3w/1510/3412/?redirect_disc=0 ).

I'd like to replace them with these below, which use 0.5 Amp each...

My question is: What maximum current draw should I limit my options to, for a DC device connected to the OEM 12V battery?

The stock fuse is 7A 250V fast blow I believe. I have not measured the current draw at a decent RPM yet - I need to get a better multimeter. My stator is nearly identical to the OEM, but a bit different, with specs that I can't find at the moment. (Fried the OEM stator while doing 10 minutes up a 30 degree incline in first gear, when the extra headlights were off).

59mph sound a bit optimistic, but 40 is definitely a bit low.
When it cuts out does it seem to hit a wall and the engine kills?  Does it start sputtering?  Do the revs seem high?
I'm guessing no flats on the rollers, but when you checked your belt did you measure the width or ? 

Beyond that:
Check for cracks in your vacuum system, including intake boot, & PAIR, check your spark plug & wire.
Probably check your valves since you'll have it apart at least somewhat at that point.
Check your air filter.
That should cover the basics, so you have a good place to start.

I have a 2014 Lance Havana Classic, carburated and around 6000 miles. It's in great condition. The only problem is that at exactly 40 mph it starts to cut out so I have to let of the throttle. The scooter is suppose to do up to 59 mph so why can't I go more than 40 mph?
I am the second owner so I didn't break the bike in. I just checked the transmission and belt, variator & rollers seem to be in vary good condition.
Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.

Check for a kickstand switch being sticky, & maybe try both brakes (one at a time works) in case the one you usually use is having a bad switch day?

HI all

I have a GTS300i Evo 2014, which until now has been awesome. After standing for a while, I have tried to start but to no avail, bike swings strongly, just will not start.

I have done the following:
- Changed battery and fully charged
- Changed spark plug
- Changed oil
- topped up fuel

Where else could I diagnose or what could the potential issue be? All lights come on, fuel pump primes on key turn, but just no start.

So he told me it was flooded, my battery was dead, adjusted the valves, cleaned the carburetor and had to much motor oil

Normally April is our wettest month, but this April has been nothing but Sunny days, with frost at night. The wind is still cold but plenty of heat in the sun. I have been riding as normal, using the Sym and the Silverwing. The Silverwing has the power and speed ,but the Sym is more fun and definately has the better brakes. I average just over ninety miles to the gallon on the Sym, and Sixty miles per gallon on the Silverwing. I am at 33, 237km on the Sym and it gets better with each ride, i have had no problems since changing the battery.

I've not really put much thought into the gear ratio but would probably just go for the standard sizes?

That's a pretty good mileage out of an original chain and sprocket kit!

I'm still in two minds about which hub to use really. I'd prefer the SYM unit because it's larger and has "as new" shoes fitted. On the other hand, the CB100N hub will possibly give better spares availability and much cheaper parts.
SYM Joyride / Sym joyride windshield
« Last post by Filoktitis on April 17, 2021, 02:30:26 PM »
Hello.. Is anybody knows if joyride 200 evo windshield fits also to the newest model joyride 200s? I want to buy an aftermarket ermax windshield, for my joyride 200 s, but I can't found one.. The only available is a windshield for the joyride 200 evo. The problem is that the seller, don't knows if it is possible to fit also to the newest model.. Also the product is not available to the store, so I cannot take a look of it.. In my eyes it looks the same, but is there anyone how knows for sure, if the two models have the same windshield? Thank you for your time..

What gear ratio are you planning on running?

I am running a rear sprocket from Scooterseals and have 45,000Km on it with the original chain.
