I received a letter from the Canadian Distributor (not sure if there is more than one in Canada)
It says that according to the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act, Tomos has determined that a defect exists in all Tomos mopeds imported to Canada up to Jan 21 2002.
It further outlines the defects as follows.
Brake System - Tomos mopeds failed to stop within the required distance of 5 meters (actual minimum stop distance 5.9 Meters)
Required Procedure: Take to dealer to have the required parts replaced. May include brake pads, backing plates and cables
Day time running Lights - Head lamps on some tomos vehicles may not be continuously illuminating when the engine is operating or when the vehicle is in motion.
Required procedure. The lighting switch may be replaced or modified to have continuous running lights.
Labeling. I'm not getting into details but a bunch of safety labels are ended re: weight allowed etc.
Anyways, has anyone heard of this or is it just Strict rules and policies from the Canadian Gov't.
