My new Hyosung project

Post by pandp on Sat 11 May 2013 - 14:53

Just picked this up this morning....first time using a trailer and i was shitting myself, 60 mile round trip to Dagenham and my satnav took me all the country roads back.

Anyway, 2007 GTR125.....been stood for two years and as you can see it's far from roadworthy....think it still has a few hundred left in that chain and sprocket though Very Happy










I have had a quick look over the bike...it was sold as spares so i didn't expect too much....battery is showing a charge but seller stated the ignition was fooked....his words not mine...first thing i noticed was the two wires from the negative side of the battery....the thinner wire looks burnt out....that wire then goes into the loom which i think then supplies the earth from the switches etc....my thought is to replace the loom but i don't want to spend if the bike really is fooked....instead i'll break it....is there a way to try to get the engine to turn.....basically i want to test if the engine is any good....if it is i'll do the bike up....ideas anyone?

Mine's just gone through an MOT in worse condition than that.

Does the engine casing have "HYOSUNG" stamped on the side? That's a good indication that the engine will be fine.

Worth saving IMO.

Chain ............ I'd say only a few METRES left in it Shocked Shocked Shocked

I reckon you should charge the battery and then once fully charged see what lights up/ works etc. and see if anything smokes Wink

From there you'll have a better idea of how good/bad the loom is Smile

Lol....are you sure with the chain Baz? Looks pretty good to me.....took me ages to get off, damn links were solid.

I just stuck my other battery on and nothing....i then twisted the steering back and forth and i got a light on the dash flicker.....messed with the wires and the dash lights up.....engine cranks but wont start and i don't expect it to.....fuel is aged so will need draining. After cranking for a while the negative lead (thin wire or around that area) started to smoke....i have cut the black plug and put the rest of the wire straight to negative....i think this will need a loom.

Tomorrow i am going to drain the tank and remove the carbs, if the airbox is anything to go the carbs must be caked in crap.

UPDATE - Carbs stripped and cleaned....engine oil drained, all parts including mesh cleaned...new oil and filter....fresh petrol in the tank and then borrowed the battery off my bike....

....managed to fire it up but it sounded terrible. On closer inspection it would appear that the front exhaust pipe is totally rotten right where it connects to the head....the rest of it is not that good either so possibly new system needed....needs new tank and i can't really test the engine due to the exhaust.....i may very well be breaking this one or it will cost me in the long run....shame, nice bike.

Looks like Cloud was right about the engine working ok. The trouble with wiring faults is that you don't know what anyone has done to it and so don't know if the fault is due to adventurous tinkering or something going wrong. Unless you have a tame electrician in you neck of the woods, you are probably close to right about breaking it or getting another loom. Looks like there's some good stuff on the bike but it looks like the bike has never had a days sympathy judging by the state of that chain. Was there much on the sump filter screen by the way?

I agree Geof, someone had had a tinker with the wiring, i managed to sort out the dodgy connections to enable a start up. Sadly the engine is stuffed, very loud metallic noise so bent valve maybe?

I didn't find much on the sump screen but the sump bolt magnet looked like a christmas tree...lots of metal deposits.

Bike is 80% stripped and engine out already. No point in trying anything and laready lots of interest in the parts. I can't believe people treat bikes that way and leave them to rot.

Yes i fitted the drop plate Geof, the plate has the option of 4 or 6 inch drop, dropped it 4 and it felt good.

Exactly what i said to my partner yesterday. Once everything is removed it will then be cleaned.
The TMC endcan is puzzling though. once i removed the four bolts this is what i was left with....is the part at the end of the exhaust pipe part of the endcan? if it is i can't sell the can because it's all welded to the pipe.

That's EXACTLY AS IT SHOULD BE Paul Wink

The flange is part of the stock pipes and mine was EXACTLY the same mate .............. so get that MTC can on Ebay , though it does look like the BAFFLE is missing rabbit

Cheers Baz, That's good to know. Atleast i can get it cleaned and on ebay tomorrow, need to try to get some cash back. Been listing items once cleaned today.

Not even thought about a price Jon, i usually leave to auction if unsure....any idea how much i should be looking for Baz?

Can doesn't have a baffle.

If i was working Jon i would be happy to wait for the cash but given i don't have a job i am under so much pressure to try to meet the bills at the end of the month. Makes me feel bad mate because i will help anyone out as much as i can but it's out of my hands Crying or Very sad

Don't worry about it Paul, you sell em to highest bidder mate, I'm in no major rush have stock exhaust since owning bike, another few months won't make any difference to me, you got to put family first! Smile
