Sym 200 Motor Scooter Review

You can't get parts for this bike. I traded in my Darby for the same reason and was told there would not be a problem getting parts. That is not true. The bike is two years old with 3600 miles. I took it in for an oil change. I was told it needed a roller. That was in May and it is now August. The plastic casing also has a number of cracks. I never recommend this bike.

Good to Hear
by: Kathi, Site Owner

That's good to hear, ootscoot! I had recommended a SYM HD200 to my husband because so many people here loved them, but when we went to our local scooter dealer, they said they were no longer carrying the SYM line because of the parts issue.

I hope maybe they'll change their tune in the future, as I still think that might be the right scooter for his needs when he's ready to buy.

SYM parts
by: Ootscoot

After the warehouse fire @ Carter Bros, the parts for the SYM hd200 were hard to get - SYM Canada has been great with supplying US dealers with needed parts. I recently got parts ordered from Canada within 4 days.
Even before the fire Carter Bros. has been very slow with part shipping, but I recently received some drivebelts and brakepads from them - hopefully they will take the hint and parts supply is a key component of sales...

No Problem

I have the HD200 and have ordered two parts through my dealer. They were shipped from Canada and took 1 week to Tennessee.

Not True
by: Jim Zeiser

Lately people have been ordering parts from the distributor for SYM in Canada. Look him up on the web and contact him. From what I understand they deliver fairly quickly.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.
