Hi Guys, just bought a new (used) bike.

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by BenJordan, Aug 23, 2012.

  1. Hey guys, been lurking for a while and just upgraded from a '99 Zeal to a 2010 Hyosung GT650r with 3500kms from a dealer. Managed to negotiate a new rear tyre and chain.

    Wondering if you guys might have some little tips to progressing from a smaller naked (tourer?) to the more aggressive seating position and (obviously) bigger engine?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Just ride it mate.......nothing to it :D

    Welcome aboard (y)
  3. bend your arms & get down lower on the bars, smoother on the throttle....thats about it
  4. wow another one, check out the guy that just bought a black one this week,
    welcome bloke ( wrong thread but)

    you NEED to post pics
  5. Been on the Zeal for 2 years, should be right I guess, thank heaps.
  6. Do sit ups to strengthen your core.
  7. Zeal to Hyo = not an upgrade

    LOL just joking, a zeal was my first bike too. Great inline 250.

  9. Guys, another quick question. On the ride home (after the bike was supposedly serviced by the dealer) I noticed the Hyo was riding a little rough, even more alarming that at Idle she would splutter and stall.

    Thinking the culprit might be a fouled plug, gobba try and put some NDK iridiums in today. Wondering if you guys had any other thoughts?

  11. Welcome to the world of Hyo ownership.
  12. I hear an echo..echo..echo
  13. After 3,500Km if there's a problem with the plug, the real problem lies elsewhere.
    That's things still under warranty right?
  14. 3500ks, new rear tyre & chain required, does that sound weird to anyone!!!!
  15. Ohh wait, sorry, its a Hyo, my bad!!
  16. Is it me or is there a massive amount of new members with hyo's here all of a sudden?
  17. There are always newbies around who, even though no "recommend me a learner bike" thread has ever suggested ANYONE buy one, will get a Hyo......

    Not a new trend - but one which will never continue to surprise......I wonder what must go through people's minds when they go for a Hyo?

    "I've heard so much BAD about these bikes - but maybe the one I get will be OK?" :confused:

    <shakes head>
  18. Price probably, can't think of any other reason than perhaps masochistic disorders.
