If you have or are thinking of getting a new Hyosung, think about addressing these little things and be rewarded with a reliable fun machine. IMO Hyos are great bikes at an affordable price that have sound design but unfortunately, assembly and dealer prep is letting them down. Having had a Hyosung and many friends with Hyos I have come across a number of annoying issues that are easily rectified if addressed early on that are common across most of the bikes. They are as follows Stator What goes wrong? Casing bolts behind the Stator work loose rubbing on the inside of the stator eventually causing electrical variations and failure How do i fiX? Take off the stator cover, remove the stator and use some permanent locking compound on these bolts you can now see and torq em up. Rear Master Cylinder What goes wrong? The push rod is not lubricated from the factory and is susceptible to corrosion and the boot holds moisture from rain or washing. The master can seize all together or lose its full range of motion causing the rear brake to grab, drag and heat. In turn, this will quickly destroy pads and ruin your rear rotor. How do I fix? Simply pull off the rubber boot and pack with some rubber grease that is brake system friendly. All brake callipers What goes wrong? The calliper slider pins are a bit of a hit and miss if they were lubricated at the factory or not. This causes them to bind in their slides and stop the calliper equally squeezing the rotor resulting in reduced braking power and uneven pad wear. How do I fix? Dismount the callipers front and rear and lubricate these pins using a high temperature compound designed for disc brakes. I use permatex. Whilst you have them apart put a little on the pad slide pins as they too have a tendency to bind to the pad. The 4 piston callipers on the efi models are much better then the earlier 2 piston and are a highly recommended upgrade. Frame What goes wrong? There are a number of areas prone to corrosion at weld points and contact points. Accelerated corrosion occurs where the spark coils mount to the frame eventually causing ignition issues and week erratic spark. How to fix? Remove the fairing seat and tank. Use of a long lasting rust preventive should do it. I normally use a lanolin based product but in this instance I actually purchased a similar enamel paint and painted the areas that have rusted on older machines I have seen. Axle What goes wrong? Poorly lubricated and in some cases not at all, making life very difficult to remove the wheels. How to fix? Pull em out and greese em up. Wiring What goes wrong? Water gets into connectors causing intermittent electrical issues or as a lot of Hyo owners have experienced being stick on the side of the road in the rain. How to fix? Find the connectors and use plenty of dielectric greese. While your at check you grounds as these can work loose and use a little thread locker Cables What goes wrong? They snap especially the clutch. How to fix? Lube em up as soon as you get it. The stock clutch cable is not a great cable. I have never had an issue with my last one as I have kept it well lubed but you could always invest in cable from one of the big 4s. I think it applies to all bikes so i have pinched it from another forum and posted it here. Thanks Ontherun I am spreading your word.
