I also facing this problem. Could not get my elegan to start at all.. This is really frustrating. Try kick start/Electric start until my battery "kong" still could not get it started.
Really need all sifu's advise and help regarding this problem..what should we do, what should we checked?
Hi, Hi to all Sifus, I've read Elegan praises from day One this forum is set up and watch Youtube videos of Elegan prowess. I got bitten by the scooter bug- sold off my 2001 Suzuki Epicuro UC 150 and bought this second hand Jul 2004 Sym 200 Joyride Evo at SGD$900 (i'm a SGP netizen). Huh a bit tatty, washed and polished 3 times and wonderfully shined out. Got it on 16 Mar 2011 though, a late bloomer to enjoy last 7 years or so other Elegan riders had enjoyed. Anyway it comes with a broken kick starter shaft, bearings for rear wheel and main shaft worn, carburetor need repair replacement set, speedo worm gear worn,fuel filler rubber cup broken, rear brake caliper slider worned out and pads too.
Rode out on day I bought only 20 metres engine kaput, push back to bike shop, had the fuel removed from tank and WATER was flushed out by air compressor gun. Found out scooter was laid up for 6 months in bikeshop forecourt, so probably water slowly sips in through the broken fuel filler broken cup.???
So my parts got replaced and anyway got 24km/l worst and 34km/l best depends on speed
Upgrades done- HID 8000k H4 headlamp bulb, white SMED LED strips to front fairing, Power Abuser 2, Broquet fuel charger, Pirelli tires, larger windshield, 4 in 1 digital gauges for voltmeter, inside/outside temperature and clock
air horns, rear 3rd brake lights and blue LED idiot light, rear box and restpad.
On stand by parts to fix up-GPR Streetfighter Exhaust, Closed pod air intake filter system, YSS new rear suspensions
uuuuupppsss for all Elegan and SYM scooter riders....me a newbie here, apologies for any unforth remarks made...cheers
