So it turns out, as part of my divorce, my ex-wife decided she was going to punish  me by smashing off my front brake lever.  I have spend the past three months trying to locate a replacement.  I actually ordered direct from Korea, but as it so happens, that one got lost in transit and i have lost patience and do not want to wait months again.  Can anyone out there, help me source a crossover part number or at least point me in the right direction?  I am in British Columbia Canada, Vancouver area and need to get this fixed asap..

Hey everyone, I'm new to these forums and haven't owned my 2012 GT650R EFI for long but I seem to have some serious electrical issues and I can't really afford to take it to the mechanic so I was gonna try DIY it if anyone has any ideas. Plus I'd love to learn my bike some more by working on it!

Okay. So everything as I know.
As I was at the mechanic for a completely unrelated issue, I was told that my battery charges less tan what it uses and that at any point whilst I am riding the bike could just shut off and stop working. This lead to me charging the battery with a battery charger before every use of riding my motorcycle and for the most part everything seemed perfect. I was coming back from my Dad’s place with what I thought was a charged battery but I may have not left it on charge long enough and so as you’d imagine the bike 100% randomly shut off. No sound or anything just all light, dash and engine was dead and I was a rolling death trap (I mean.. a more deadly rolling death trap?). Anyway, I thought the battery was dead as lights and all weren’t working and that obviously the bike wouldn't start. Now what I'm confused about is what happened after all this. So that cars could see me on the side of the road I did try to turn the key on again and found the indicator was the ONLY thing that was working but for some reason at random times the bolb would stop blinking and hold the light on whilst making this angry “erhh” sound. The best way for me to describe it would be almost like a little electric motor that was jammed stuck and it’s just moaning in pain at your trying to turn and then suddently it would blink normal again, and then hold the light and moan again. 100% random timing too with no noticeable pattern. Also notable was when I did click the starter it wasn’t even trying to crank. Made 100% no noise, any movement or sign of doing anything at all. So, I get home and charge the battery for a good long time and to my surprise the bike was acting the exact same as that night and nothing changed which is why im confused and lastly to make it all the more confusing. Just this morning with nothing changed at all. I went to video record my issue and the bike started perfectly and there were 0 issues. So... It is working now, but the thought of the bike completely dieing at 110km/h again on the highway is scary.

The ex-Hyo dealer in Canberra (Joe's Motorcycles) still services Hyo's and sells them second hand too. They get parts in fast and have been great.

I do all my own work to save money and to learn; but if I ever get stuck I'm glad to have a dealer that isn't being a cockdrag about working on it!

Hyo has their flaws (bloody special cheese bolts) but overall I'm damn happy with my GV250; no idea why a garage would turn away a job.

So along with doing the wiring fix this weekend, I plan to do everything in the service manual including the following
Oil and filter change
Coolant flush and hose replacement
Brake fluid flush and replacement along with new rear brakes and servicing the rear caliper as its sticking
New spark plugs
Clean and lube the chain
And finally front forks fluid replacement
Whether I can get this all done in a weekend I am not sure.

I would really like to find a downloadable version for the Gt650 manual so that I do things 100% correct. Everything I find on the forum has links to threads from 2002 - 2008 and all the links have expired. There is an online version, but I want to download it and print it since I don't wanna get a keyboard full of oil etc.
Also if anyone who regularly services their bike can advise if there is anything I should watch out for? Is there anything else I should pay attention to? Useful upgrades that are worth considering?
Bolts that strip easily? Seals that tear easily?

Lastly
I am contemplating taking the stock airbox out and putting a cone pilter/ foam filter the likes in place? Any recommendations? I am not really looking for a power gain or to have to rejet the carbs, just looking for something with less maintenance and that frees up the space.

Welcome - I rented a very similar bike in Auckland when visiting my daughter who lives there now (I'm in Scotland) - great bike, and the main reason that I bought a Hyosung!

Enjoy the bike, and the forum banter!! ;)

Hello Korider people, I've just picked up a 2005 GT250 Comet for a super bargain price of NZ$600. It had been neglected for many years and has cleaned up quite well. I cleaned out the most disgusting varnished carbs I have ever seen, all running good now. Pressure washed it with a 3100PSI machine. I've changed the fork oil to 10wt and added 9mm of 40mm washers to increase the preload. I read about this mod on this site. Seems much firmer, and I haven't had a change to ride it yet as I am waiting for new rear brake pads to arrive. I did the wheels in black plasicote today, they have come up a treat. I've ordered some alloy motocross style handle bars and had a new rear tyre fitted today. So far our cheap little project bike is coming together nicely. Next is to adjust the rear pre-load and change front and rear brake pads, fuel filter, oil and filter, air filter, new footpegs, spark plugs. Im waiting for all the parts in an order from hyosungparts.co.nz. They seem pretty well priced and have free shipping. I could really do with a new exhaust muffler. I sandblasted and painted the headers with VHT paint, but the chrome exhaust can is really pitted and wont clean up. I'm at a point where I am thinging of getting that blasted and painting it black, but I thought someone on the forum may have a stock muffler lurking about that I could buy for a reasonable price?

The ideal solution would be to replace the projectors with a bixenon setup.

The morimoto products are very famous. http://www.theretrofitsource.com

They're not a straight swap. This is a high level mod.

Bixenon projectors have an adjustable cutoff louvre that flicks open when the high beam is active.

The motorcycle stage 2 dual setup is not cheap at $270 USD but will actually double your light output. ..not just claim to, but actually, properly double it.

This process will be legit full on though, involving putting your rare and difficult to find headlight assembly in an oven and heating up the glue until you can pull it apart, remove the stock projector lenses and retro fit the bixenon ones. It will require careful use of epoxy glue and the creation of new mounting points out of high temperature plastics, ie not acrylic. They would also need to be adjusted so that the cutoff lines match.

Precise work needed.
