GV650 Avitar Owners - Please Read!
« on: November 04, 2006, 11:18:19 PM »

There appears to be an issue with handlebar bolts on the GV650 Avitar snaping.  There have been a few reports here, on AlternativeCruisers.com and other Hyo boards.

http://www.alternativecruisers.com/index.php?topic=2092.0

Dennis (CBXMan Motorcycles) sent me an email.  He has offered to replace these bolts for Hyosung GV650 owners.  I am not sure if this offer extends outside the USA yet so hold tight for word from Dennis.  

Thanks Dennis for taking it upon yourself to help everyone out!

We now have the longer allen bolts on hand. Went to 30mm hardened bolts. Any one that wants a set should send their name and address to Donna@cbxman.com As a courtesy to the GV650 owners we'll send them out to owners for free (limit 1 pair per user).
Should resolve the problem!

If you turn the front forks to one side or the other - you can look at the underside of the top triple tree. They are a simple allen bolt - 6mm if I remember right... simply unthread the old one and screw in the new one - one at a time is easier... be careful not to let the bars get away from you and scracth your trees.

The bolts come with loctite already on them. Nothing to it  :)

Torque Specs
« Reply #3 on: December 19, 2006, 01:16:53 AM »

Dave,

I believe a service bulletin came out that changed the torque on those bolts.

Anybody out there know what the new specs are?

PS Dave, did you see my question about whether you can make some cast aluminum levers?

Regards.

sorry - i thought i responded to that, but i guess i only answered it in myhead... :oops:

I dont have the equipment to make cast aluminum parts. If you are having a lever issue there are some easy things to try - this is for the GT250 right? It should be possible to replace the lever with a more comfortable one, without having to replace the entire mechanism. usually the lever itself is just one piece and comes out by unfastening the nut on the underside of the lever.

If you liek the lever - just need it more presentable - I can grind on it and smooth it off. I wont be able to re-shape it or weld on it.

sorry - I know this went off topic...  :roll:  8)  :lol:

Worried new GV 650 owner
« Reply #6 on: June 23, 2007, 12:01:16 PM »

Mate,
I've only just got my bike now I read about handlebars falling off!  :(  Didn't that happen a while ago?  And haven't Hyosung rectified the problem for bikes built recently?  Mine was built Jan 07.  Shouldn't it be ok?

The easiest way to find out if you have the new style bolts is to look under the top fork clamp. The h/bar bolts is located just behind the control cables, if you have allen head bolts you have the old style bolts, the new ones have a hex head w/flange. Hope this helps...

Bad bolts
« Reply #9 on: August 17, 2008, 04:23:23 PM »

Just wanted to know if anyone knew if the 2007 UM 650 Anniversary edition was having the same problem.  My sister just bought that bike and I'm obviously concerned for her safety.  I don't have much info on her bike other than what I already gave, and she lives 2500 miles away from me, so I'm limited on what I can find out.  I've checked quite a few different sites, hear a lot about the Hyos, but no one talking about the UMs, and no one with a definate answer about which bikes do and don't have the bad bolts.
