the yuasa battery website doesnt have them listed, neither does NGK spark plugs. :dontknow: id imagine most parts guys in town will have trouble knowing or finding out what they use, not to mention oil filters, air filters, ect...im sure alot of service guys would be shrugging there shoulders too, leaving you with limited choices for parts, upgrades, and service.

*added: nothing for them in the way of brake pads at EBC or Galfer's websites either. k& n does not make air filters for them either.

parts can be cross refrenced first off. Also i'm sure the dealer that sold the bike has a way of knowing where to get parts. like jet says if you don't know anything about them then sit down and zip it.

well I was in the hyosung showroom and fit and finish and quality of plastics was HORRIBLE like... I've seen squirrels build houses from sticks and rocks that had a glossier sheen than the hyosung .


and second, they aren't THAT much cheaper than brands with that doenst look like it will fall apart.

and third, they reviewd the hyosung 650 in one of my motorcycle mags and it was way slower and way crappier than the other bikes.

so, meh.

Have you ever rode their 250? Its faster than my ninja 250, and it was more fun to ride than the ninja 250. The one I rode didnt look or feel like it was gunna fall apart. It corners better than the ninja 250 for me too.

Not trying to be rude here chris, but my parts availability goes WAAAAY beyond PU and Tucker Rocky catalogs. Any parts guy at any parts counter can get you parts out of a PU or TR catalog, as long as they can read that is. Look up Triumph parts in those catalogs and tell me what you find. . .Nothing. Does that mean i can't get parts and accessories for the bike i ride every day? Not at all. I know you probably hustle a lot of Japanese bike parts over at your little parts counter at stubbs, but there is a world of two wheelers out there beyond what you deal with on a daily basis.
BTW, you're right that "most parts guys in town will have trouble knowing or finding out what parts to use". Shouldn't really stereotype people when you sound as if you were cast from the same mold. :confused1 Sounds like some people on the south side of town need to find themselves a new parts guy. . .
anything else i can help you understand today?

Fit and finish is not up to par with that of the big four. price isn't up there either. . . Also, the pose factor is not as high, so i can see where you might have a problem with Hyosung. Not cool enough for ya bro?


so, meh

bikes that are pieces of held together with sheet metal screws are not cool enough for me. prices aren't low enough to justify the poor quality and worksmanship and blatant rip off styling.
If you can unload them on unsuspecting former scooter riders thats cool but I think most people who are shopping would be far better served by a good used bike than a cheaply built, cheaply designed second rate rip off.
and thats the end of my commentary in this thread. has nothing to do with POSE value, everything to do with ending up with a quality product that will remain reliable and retain its value.

Bwuahahahaha:laughing6 Your obvious lack of knowledge bamboozles me. Since you suddenly know so much about motorcycles, who is Hyosung "blatantly" ripping off?:eh: If you want to start and unfounded match, send it to my PM's. If you want to LEARN something, speak less and listen more. Until then, Pose on bro.:confused1
