Welcome to the forum Ricky Cool

As far as I know , you will have to use a photo hosting site to upload your pics to before posting on here ( I'll look into it tomorrow from my laptop rather than my phone , shich I'm using now ) 
I'll post a link later ..... there is a "sticky " thread on here on how to post pics Wink

Baz

P.S. the how to is the first thread in " Picture Gallery "

Thanks baz, and cheers, yeah so far I can honestly say the gt is prob the best bike I've owned. It had its faults when I got it but that was partly down to neglect from the previous owner. But apart from that it's been such a good bike in every way Smile

That seems to be the biggest problem with ANY bike not just Hyos'  Wink

Too many people who just want to '' TUNE '' their bike to get the most speed out of it ....... ooooh !! will I get 90 mph out of it if I change my end can .... how do I re-jet and what size do I need ( and BTW , where is my carb ? ) .... where can I buy a Power Commander for my Hyo 125 ? ( you can't 'cos it's carb not EFI ) ..................

All this but NOT ONCE have they thought to clean , lube and adjust their chain ..... check their oil level , tyre pressures , spray their electrical contacts with WD40 etc. ....... i.e. BASIC MAINTAINANCE 

Absolutely amazes me sometimes  Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Haha, yeah that's exactly it baz, at long last someone who knows the correct way to look after a bike. My previous bike was a jinlun 125-11 and it was in such a poor state. The guy complained that it wouldn't turn over (that's why I got it so cheap) and the reason was the stupid arse had left a spark plug out and hadn't put a cover over the bike. So all the rain water had got into the cylinder and rusted it nicely.
But yeah I totally agree, a lot of people want these bikes to do 90+mph but it's a 125 at the end of the day. I've owned big cc bikes before but I like the 125s because they are cheap and fun to ride. Especially around town etc Smile

I hear ya, I picked up a huoniao hn125-8 for the Mrs for £50, is HW10 plate bike with about 15k on the clock, MOT failure cause it was dropped and the great lever snapped!! It's only just 5 years old but I don't think it had been changed once! But it made a good first project bike, completely striped it down and then cleaned all the frame and all the pieces as I put it back together, sprayed a couple of bits to make em look better, and redone the wiring loom, had her running yesterday, was riding her round the garden! Cleaned and resprayed the exhaust last night ready to go back on and she'll be good for MOT and I've only spent £40
