  6. We are a seller and provide maintenance for these bikes and do not run into problems often. Hyosung has a corporate office in Georgia.

  7. PERSONALLY I don't believe in the fuel cap problem a have 1 hyusong 2005 gv650 and a have friends they have united motors ct650 is the same manufacture 1 thEy never do the sound like you open a soda and second they never lost power like they said in the recall the issue is the way they weld the parts they hold the fuel thank to the motorcycle my is leakage but its easy to repair find somebody to weld with tig welding around that part and the thank specially the front mount part but my friend do it and the motorcycle have 3 years without problems after warranty change 2 fuel tanks but suppose the new fuel tank hyosung provides now have that problem fix a contact the company and a working to do the arrangement hyosung phone number 1-770-447-5571 but they don't fix the united motor motorcycle if you have one and you call united motor and they not answer find a professional welder with experience in fuel tank don't do it by yourself its dangerous because fuel gases cant explode
