Hi, Anonymous for the wobble the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.

SOURCE: front end slow speed wobble

First off - Did you take the whole front end off to install the lowers? If you did - did you tighten the Main locking washer on the uppper triple tree to the correct specs? You might want to raisee the bike off the ground with a scissor jack under the frame and then with someone holding the bike steady see if you can move the front tire sideways or up and down. This is will tell you if that locking washer is loose or maybe a bad bearing in the front end triple tree

Check your rectifier. Do a hydro test on your battery if you can get into it. Should be 1200 or more. If the battery is 3 years old or more - replace it.

2002 Kymco Hipster 125 will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi . where is the valve timing mark on my kymco-125 hipster cam -sprocket.


the valve timing mark is on the flywheel on the Hipster's.

Remove the large flat blade screw from the top of the left hand side casing. Turn the engine either by hand (using kickstart with ignition off), turning rear wheel in gear, or by removing the "kymco" badge with three 8mm bolts and using a 19mm deep socket on the crank, until you see two marks (one says F one say T) the F one is the advance firing mark, the T mark is the timing mark. Keep turning the engine over and watch your valves, wait for the exhaust valve to close, inlet valve to open and then close again then the next time you see the T line will be TDC. This is where you set your valve timing from.

Windsheild


125cc isn't a very big engine to push a scooter with a windshield. Adding a windshield dramitcally increases the load on that little engine. Kymco does have one and Your dealer can probably order it for you. You can also find it on http://www.kymcousa.com/access/windscree...
