GENERAL DISCUSSION / Sym 150cc
« Last post by Chouse on Yesterday at 10:59:02 AM »
Hi I am looking at getting a new scooter. I am looking at the SYM Fiddle 150CC. What i want to know is what is the performance difference between the SYM 150 and the Chinese 170CC scooters like the BigBoy 170CC. I have already done research on re ability thus I just want to know what is the performance difference between the two. I don't have a learners or a license yet thus i can't test drive them to see for myself.

Before you order 1, find one that you borrow or check to see if it will fit.

Hi Stan

It is yes. Just wanted to check here first before I order one. Pwk is the only one that will fit with the bigger intake manifold as per most people. Some well priced units but I thought if someone had in would support local first.

Thanks for the reply

is this for use on your pmx110?
if so, have you thought about seeing if you can get the CG125/150 carb to work (or any one of the Chinese copies) ?

MECHANICAL AND TECHNICAL THREADS / Re: Possibly odd rear caliper movement
« Last post by Stanthescooterman on October 15, 2017, 07:10:59 AM »
the caliper's "floating" mountings are worn. Only solution is to replace the caliper assembly.

edit: you can delay the inevitable by replacing the mounting rubbers, which doesn't fix the problem, it might just make it less obvious.

The pins are the parts that don't wear, it's the part of the (aluminium) caliper that the (steel) pins make perpetual contact with.

The mechanic said he heard it and greased up the moving parts in the clutch.

Clutches and grease are not friends

MECHANICAL AND TECHNICAL THREADS / Possibly odd rear caliper movement
« Last post by xsel777 on October 14, 2017, 11:04:10 AM »
For some time now, a few months, a loud rattling noise is heard at the rear of the scoot, when at just above idle, and scoot is moving.
As soon as I touch the rear brakes it is gone, but it comes right back.
Sometimes I can feel a binding in the brake feedback.
The mechanic said he heard it and greased up the moving parts in the clutch.
But the noise remained after his remedy.

Yesturday, I finally managed to replicate it with the scoot on its centre stand.
Definately rear caliper.
I can take hold of the outermost part, and visibly move it up and down.
I think this indicates the pins are worn, or some type of rubber support(think floating) is perished or missing.

I know the brakes won't fail, and I could carry on like this, but is there any way to limit damage if there is, or replace a part or two.?
The spring is in place.

What say you?

MECHANICAL AND TECHNICAL THREADS / Re: Oil in the water tank

What is best practice to run-in the engine, now that it has higher compression (skimmed), and new rings.? What max distance is the run-in period for.? Do I need to take the scooter in again for the head to be retorqued.? I know that the oil and filter must be changed soonish.
