I find this surprising. There's really nothing much different about that Hyosung than any other bike. If you can't find anyone to work on it, send me a PM and I'll teach you to do it yourself. I've had several Hyosungs and there's nothing special or particularly odd about them.

You're correct, it's no different working on the Hyosung, but the issue happens when it becomes more than just basic stuff. I.E. you're doing an oil change and discover a vavle cover is leaking and needs a gasket.
Getting parts from Hyosung is like pulling teeth most times.

We had 2 bikes sitting in the shop for over 6 months waiting on some b/s throttle cables. The cables were so screwed up in design that even Barnett wouldn't make up a custom set.
I've had issues getting other parts for them as well.

The problem then comes when the customer is frustrated at us because we can't obtain parts, even though it's not us, it's the poor U.S. distributor support.

We came to the decision that if we can't consistently source parts for a brand we won't service them.
