HELPFUL MOPED TIPS

at least on the mobylette (i have a 79) model make sure you have the two (that's all i've found so far that need it) grease points adequately lubed. in the center of the nut holding the clutch on there is a point and also there is a point on the end of the pedal shaft requiring grease. we just used an air powered grease gun with a pointed attachment to lube throughout. i experienced the negative half of the pedal shaft point because since i didn't know it had to be greased i blew out a set of roller bearings. luckily i noticed the point on the clutch yesterday and now the clicking sound i had in the clutch is gone so i'm pretty sure i saved that from going bad.

SINCE THERE WAS REALLY NO WAY TO MAINTAIN THESE PARTS SHORT OF HAVING A BREAKAGE IF ANYONE HAS ANY OTHER MOPED MAINTENANCE TIPS PLEASE POST THEM. WE CAN ALL USE THE INFORMATION TO KEEP US ALL ON THE ROAD.

RE: HELPFUL MOPED TIPS

I think everyone should look all over their moped for grease nipples. since most all of us dont have original owners manuals, we gotta figure this stuff out for ourselves. The belt pulley with the pedals attached (dont know the proper name) on my moped i noticed was wobbling kindof weird at low to mid rpm. then i noticed it had a nipple on there. I pumped grease into it, the wobble went away. its also a bit quieter now. If you dont know what one of these grease fittings looks like, its like a small little metal tube with a bearing in it to keep the grease from coming out and dirt from coming in. if you find one, find a friend with a grease gun or goto an auto shop; they probably wouldnt charge you anything to just pump some grease in.

dave,

are there any grease points on the tomos other than on the speedo cable? I just got a sprint that runs for $50, with a working cable so that reminded me of the grease fitting...
