I've had my 2007 GT650R for 9 months now, and it still looks like it has just left the showroom floor, which is a definite positive. Overall, the bike has done everything I have asked of it, but it has had the following issues:
  • Stator burnt out x2 (the first replacement only lasted 3 months, so was fixed under warranty).
  • Regulator died and was replaced at the same time as the first stator.
  • Water pump started leaking and had to be replaced, as it was not serviceable.
  • wiring issues on the rear brake light and right front indicator.

I do like my bike, but it has had more issues than I would hope for in 9 months of riding.


Your bike is 4 years old, and you've had it 9 months and there's problems?

You bought it second hand what do you expect really?

I just got an 06 GT250r and there's problems, but there all from previous owner and lack of simple regular maintenance I wouldn't expect anymore for the resale price the guy got and I don't mind getting my hands a little dirty sometimes! This is my first bike and after reading the manuals a few times I feel I can sort just about any problem on this bike with all the helpful history of posts and reliable seller websites around, and there's a dealer almost anywhere who'll work on Hyosungs now!

I have a 2007 plate GT125R tuned.
Also i did own a 2006 plate GT125R as well.

No real issues with either, starts every day, takes a little while to warm up properly but it is carb...
Clutch cables used to be crap but the new version seems much better!
No other mechanical issues at all for me :) still love it and had it a few years now!

I own two 07 UM (rebadged Hyo's) V2C-650's one is the T model (touring with bags) and the other is the standard S model.

Both have been great bikes.  The wife's has 5000 miles on it, had some issues with the electrical connectors, but that is the dealers fault for not prepping the bike properly in my book.

I just did a starter relay on the standard.  But it is running great.  Both made it through a very cold winter with very little heat, and started right up after I replaced the batteries and charged them.  I love AGM batteries.

They are WAY faster than other production cruisers, and I love raising heck with Sporty owners.

I would and have bought them again.  I also used to own the gv650AE EFI.  Awesome bike.

In terms of the electricals, other sites have write ups on how to convert the Hyo's to a more stable charge system.  They put the EX500 stator on with a MOSFET R/R, and get much better voltage ranges, and it gives them the ability to add a ton of electrical items.

I own a 2007 GT650R and have had minor issues.  Ive had to change the stator, rectifier, battery twice and the occasional fairing bolt that falls out due to vibration.  Overall I feel the bike has held up well.

After doing the stator mod, the bike is a different bike.  Once I got a look at that stator, its no wonder.  The ones they use aer very poor quality.  Mine had absolutely no coating on it.  NONE.  And it looked like it was wound by an arthritic infant.

I mean its bad.  I used the EX250 Stator, and when you look at them side to side, you can tell the difference in quaility.

Also, use a MOSFET RR.  Hyo uses a dump gate style, and they are inherently weak.  MOSFET are WAY better, stable, constant, cool, and reliable.  And boy dies that CDI operate different with proper voltage.  I agree with others, get the electricals worked out and its an OUTSTANDING bike, but for the $150.00 USD I put into that upgrade, I would do it again in a Heart Beat.  They are getting pretty cheap when you find them.

Got my 2006 at a insurance damaged auction site fixed it up and loved it, espically the cheap cost of the mods I wanted, had no problems at all with it, been 2 years since I sold it and now looking at getting another roady and after looking at other bikes I am now looking at a 2008 GT650 - cost is a big factor mainly due to the actual number of days a year I get to ride and I also found it suited my height (6ft 1") and weight really well - so yes I would buy another one.
My recommondation is the dealers should recommoned this site for all sales of Hyos.

Had a few niggly issues but probably nothing that couldn't have been stopped by a bit of TLC from previous owner (unappreciative woman lol) left the poor girl standing for 8 months near sea side without use or protection  :-[ but getting her back on track now painted engine and so on  ;D

I had two problems with my 2007 Hyo.... 1 was the clutch cable and the other was the wheel bearing.

2006 GT125R.

Outstanding.
Not just the best bike I've ever owned, but possibly the best thing I've ever owned.
