I've got a SYM dealer near me in Poole, Roger Barrett. They also do Royal Enfield etc. They used to be Yamaha agents a few years ago. I've never dealt with them but not heard any bad reports either. If they have to go through Motogb though I suppose they'll be just as bad as any other. :?
I do quite fancy the MaxSym but wouldn't consider it if the spares situation is as bad as I've heard.

Poole Moto over in Hamworthy had a Cruisym in a few months back, they'd sold it the day before I dropped by. Their rep isn't great tho'

Just phoned the dealer to confirm what I know already - it hasn't arrived. So on Ebay later to order one. Then onto Google to find another source for parts. As I say in future I will only go to the dealer/MotoGB if I need a part but can't get it anywhere else. And prepare for a long, long wait...
Seems like a good starting point

Just noticed their Email address. Parts@motogb.co.uk. Are they connected? Or do they get their parts through MotoGB? If they do then they will be no good. Because apparently MotoGB don't supply parts, just say they will. They have told my dealer three times they will send my mudguard/fender and haven't.

Just realised. Their address is the same and their phone number is only one digit different. It's MotoGB. And therefore no good. I'll have to have another look at Google to try and find another supplier.

I ordered the fender off Ebay by the way. It arrived on Thursday and I'm having it fitted next week.
