Question about Sym Motorcycles
How do I remove battery from my sym joyride 200 motor scooter as the battery is leaking battery acid
If it is leaking battery acid you should be able to work out where the battery is. Because you can see where the electrolyte is coming from. Remember to disconnect the earth wire (black) first. Remember to neutralise the battery acid after you have removed the failed battery.

I also own one (4 years old). Assuming it drives strongly enough at speed the problem will be your belt drive/variator transmission. If you are OK mechanic-wise remove the left side panel (you have to remove the small rear panel near the lights first) and then all the txmission case screws to have a look. If the belt is OK (and they last forever) it could be you need new roller weights in the front variator. They wear flat spots afet a couple of years that ruin acceleration. (Special tool needed - I made one though), or new clutch shoes in the rear variator - or maybe they are just sticking and need a good clean. Spin everything by hand to check for noise/slop/ wobbliness and check the oil in the tiny rear gearbox (see owners handbook. You need a measuring cup and a paint syringe to get the exact amount right.
If you aren't confident use a good bike garage. weights are inexpensive and probably clutch shoes too so if you can do any labour yourself it won't break the bank. Google for a free SYM Joyride workshop manual by the way. Happy scootering

If this happens in cold weather or after a fast run it's carb icing. SYM do a replacement carb bowl to solve this or you can use a fuel additive SILKOLENE Pro FST. I use the additive as it also keeps the fule system clean and lasts well.

Check your chain. It is likely something is loose or out of alignment. If you continue to ride you risk breaking the chain and possibly injuring you, your passenger, or damaging the motorcyle. Look closely at the master link on the chain, is there a snap ring missing? Is the sprocket tight and aligned correctly? Is the countershaft sprocket nut in place and tight (the countershaft is the small sprocket at the front of the chain)?

have you checked your belt ,also 3000 is about the limit i drive with my rollers unless i use the dr puller (sliders)they last alot longer .some rollers flatten out at about 1500-2000klms,the clutch could be worn or one of the springs could have failed(clutch or contra spring)that will give a rough ride ,1 more thing when you changed the rollers did you clean the variator and get rid of all the belt dust
