Moped's a Shudderin' !

My ped just started this over the past few days. When I start to accelerate from a dead stop, it shakes... or shudders. What the heck is going on?

Re: Moped's a Shudderin' !

Maybe one the hamsters in the engine died and it's making the other one work harder. Just kidding. Give us more details.

Re: Moped's a Shudderin' !

Yeah, make and model of 'ped would be worthwhile knowing.

If it is your Tomos Targa I would suspect something is going wrong with your first gear clutch.

Have you checked the oil lately?

Re: Moped's a Shudderin' !

it shakes at 0-10mph. The front wheel feels like it is bouncing a little. Once it gets going, it feels fine. 10-30mph is smooth. This didn't start happening until a few days ago. I thought, "maybe i need to tighten the front wheel?" But that didn't seem to help.

I have been premixing my oil... around 42-50/1. and yes, it's my 94' Targa LX.

Re: Moped's a Shudderin' !

If it is the first gear clutch, how hard might this be for me to fix? I am new to this stuff...

Re: Moped's a Shudderin' !

I don't know anything about tomos, but check your transmission oil.

Re: Moped's a Shudderin' !

Oh... transmission oil.
