    oops my husky the 2000 model incase that makes a difference

  • gredragon May 23, 2009

    not sure whats wrong son took bike to garage they said needs a new engine i will talk to them tuesday but the cost they quoted him i thought its cheaper to get a replacement lump many thanx

  • gredragon May 23, 2009

    yeah his bike, he was goin to the garage to pick somthing up as he had noticed it was losing power when he got there the bike wouldn't start so he asked them to have a look apperently a nut had come undone and (as i understand ) has done serious damage now whether this was in the air intake damaging the valve or on the bottom end i don't know for sure but the boy thinks it was to do with the carb. prior to this it sounded and went well

  • gredragon May 23, 2009

    i am so pleased to have someone to chat to like this . unfortunatly the garage seem to have already dis -assembled the engine which worried me but i can't be sure of this . i would do the bulk of the work with you . taking the worst case senario (new piston , valve, ect) are these parts easily accessible and what cost do u consider to be a good estimate ? i will speak to the garage on tuesday and get the bike home a.s.a.p hope to speak to u again many thanks for your kind help .

    yeah have got digital camera and believe can send them easily via email not sure how to here tho , don't know where nearest sym dealer is the garage where the bike is sells sym's but will look into gettin spars else where ... the bike is stripped which is a shame as i won't know the procedure to reverse for installation ( i'll try and accquire a manuel ) although my mechanical skills ain't bad my experience with bikes is however limited.

    the garage quoted the equal to $950

    the bikes value would be in the region of $1100

    you are alittle to far for me to pop over to see u in dallas i'm over the water in the uk on the devon / cornwall border.

    if u consider the bike is beyond economic repair i will understand

  • gredragon Jun 01, 2009

    well i knew things like this happen but never to me !!!! where do i start i went to the garage the head was apart but not properly dismantled there was no damage by the nut they said they discovered it before it could drop into the valves however the bottom bearing , main bearing top end gudgon pin were worn and needed relacing as the 13,000 miles the bike had done had been unkind to it and as the bike was unroad worthy (it passed a mot at a repetable garage 2 weeks ago and only done 15 miles since) it was not really economic to repair also the reason it wouldn't start was because it had no compression then they tried to charge me for 6 hours work at £30 per hour !!!!! i got the bike back but only paid them £50 all the time he was trying to sell me the bike next to it for £600 any way u didn't need to know all that but i was alittle upset i'll put it back together over the next week really good weather here i'm rushed off my feet let u know what i find ...thanks again

  • gredragon Jun 08, 2009

    Well the bottem end seems fine no scratches on the bore the damage i can find is on one side of the cam shaft and one of the rockers they,ve grooved each other badly i guess it was run short of oil at some stage or they were both softer metal humm unlikly.Cam chain looks ok .
    Strange that sym arn't sold over there they are popular with the kids over here, a cheap fun bike . My past experience with them was ok i bought a sym euro for my daughter brand new(2002) went back 3 times in first month teething trouble mostly electronics however my boys have been riding it about off road for ages the engine is still sweet..only 50 cc ....hummm shall i somehow transplant that into husky wouldn't cost me anything but hassle ...only kiddin i'll get some quotes an see what happens

Why not fix the original engine? What went wrong? Aside from that, try googling " motorcycle salvage Sym Husky " and just " Sym Husky ". A couple of bikes are for sale on the 2nd one. I don't know of any model compatabilitys.

    I assume it is your son who rides the bike. Could you get with him and have him post what went wrong with the bike? Did it not want to shift into first or second gear or other gears? Clutch problems? Battery goes dead? Hard to start? Knocking sound from engine? Smokes badly? Just no power? What happened leading up to the problem?

  • tombones May 23, 2009

    I am interested to see what the garage says. If a small nut did get into the intake manifold and male it to the intake valve, it could only do two things. 1) Jam between the valve and valve seat thus holding the valve open for the piston to hit and bend the valve. 2) Get past the valve ( not likely ), and bounce around inside the cylinder. After we see what the garage says, I suggest you go ahead and remove the cylinder head, ( what have you got to loose? ). Then let's see what condition the the top end is in. Who will do the dis-assembly, you and I or your son and I or all three of us?

  • tombones May 24, 2009

    Parts should be available. I don't have enough information to suggest any valid cost. Could you take a digital camera and get me photos of the top of the piston, the valves in the head, the spark plug tip and the cylinder wall with the piston at the bottom of the stroke? Close up shots are best. Very close up. Are you computer savvy enough to email the photos?

    I am in Dallas texas. Where are you? How close is the nearest Sym dealer? What would you say was the retail value of the bike before the problem? I hope the garage did not pull the engine apart.
    By the way, what did the garage give as a repair cost?

  • tombones May 26, 2009

    I am going to price out the cost of a new top end with and without cylinder. I will assume the cam and cam chain are still good. $900 seems a lot to me. Look on the web and find a Husky dealer 200 miles away. Call them and ask the probable cost of replacing the head, piston and rings. Now ask the additional cost for cylinder replacement. Some cylinders can not be bored out due to nickle or chrome plated walls. I will check the Husky. If the cylinder can be bored then there will be no possible need for a new cylinder.

    Find out what parts the garage is replacing. Just the main parts. Also ask just what did the damage. Is the top end the only repair? Parts can be costly but let me check.

  • tombones May 27, 2009

    I give up. I can't find a dealer Stateside. The Sym Husky apparently is not sold in the USA. No salvage bikes, no nothing.

    Google " UK salvage motorcycles Sym Husky ". Get back to me with what the garage says.

  • tombones Jun 12, 2009

    Doesn't sound to me like there was ever was a loose nut. I am proud of you for only paying the L50.

    These guys were doing a rip off on you. First class jerks. A good mechanic could tear that engine down in an hour. Six hours labor shows me incompetence. My vote is you sell the bike for L350 as a basket case then get a new bike entirely. Alternate to that is fixing this one using it or doing a quick sale for L900 Now you have dependability and a warranty!

Hi.. Try replacing the rectifier (the one charging the battery) Check your electrical wires and see if there's any short of some sort. Replace battery if you haven't replaced it since you got the bike.

Hope it helps!

If your sure that the fuse and battery is fine, then it may be a faulty connection on the ignition...From what you say here though, I would be very suspect of fuse or bad connection to battery...Maybe there is another fuse that you have missed...
