Not pure crap, just cheap. Expect to perform twice the maintenance but saying that, I'd have another in a heart beat.

Just a comparison, i did buy a brand new Hisun 500 atv which is regarded as "cheap crap", but i have not had a single issue. And i have been using it hard and through all kind of terrain and mud. Are the chinese passing the koreans?

Mine is 7 years old, 11,500 miles - only problems have been a loose connection at the main fuse (possibly knocked by a heavy disk lock I had under the seat) and a sticky sidestand switch.

I have it serviced regularly by a former Hyosung dealer, and other than oil, it has had some brake pads and a new chain, when the old one was beginning to stiffen a bit.

Only summer use I must admit, and serviced, cleaned and polished regularly, but it is still in perfect condition, no rust, no corrosion........

There are certainly plenty of problems to read on this forum - but that is because we are a good source of help for those who are stuck, or doing their own servicing without dealer backup....

That's my experience anyway!  ;)

One thing that seems odd to me are that the charging issues seems to have excisted from 2004 to this day, are Hyosung totally unaware of the problem and if not, why not make a better solution?

That particular issue is one that I have wondered about as well.

Where would the brand be, if they reacted to these known issues?

I've had mine for four years.

Other than the usual stuff like brake pads and tyres, it's needed:

  • New engine - old engine had oil changed at garage and they didn't tighten oil drain plug. Yeah. Not a manufacturing fault.
  • New front forks - old forks burst when I was involved in a crash-for-cash insurance scam where someone pulled out on me and stopped, so I hit the brakes, hard, and then bumped the kerb, blowing both oil seals out, and I decided to replace forks rather than frick about with seals. Not a manufacturing fault.
  • New swingarm - old one was twisted after a chain snappage incident before I bought the bike. Not a manufacturing fault.
  • New brakes - I was going through calipers every couple of months so I put different calipers on.

I think that's it. Everything else has been modifying and tuning. I have currently a Hyosung-derived race engine that's supposed to be stripped down and rebuilt every weekend, but I've run it for over two years now, every day, and it's only just started making some bad noises. It's been totally reliable, the only time it actually wouldn't go is when the oil drain plug plopped out and the engine seized, other than that, it fires first crank, every time, every day, week in and week out, for year after year.

It's about as zero-maintenance as it gets.

Once the charging issue was solved and the suspension adjusted properly, it's really a great, fun bike and very reliable. My 07' 650 GT has about 24,000 KMs now.

Is the solution to the charging issues only to get a better rectifier or must also the stator be changed?
