If you hear a tapping noise from the gearbox then you have a broken gear tooth. Is the sound is present in all the gears or just in one or two gears? If the tapping is present in all gears then the busted tooth is on the clutch hub or the crankshaft drive gear. This is good because it is easier to fix than a broken transmission gear.
If the tapping is just in one or two gears then you will need to remove the engine for a complete tear down. In any event, ALWAYS replace gears in sets. Replace the broken gear and the gear that it meshes with. Don't replace both gears and you will soon wish you did. ALWAYS replace gears in sets.
Please rate this answer. Thanks!

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.

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 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.
