Tomos lacking power??

My 85 tomos A-3 bullett seems to be lacking power to pull me up hills even in first speed it just wont pull. i weigh 180 and am 6'0 ft Could it be that I am too heavy for it? Would sacrificing top speed for larger sprocket in rear fix it? or should i just look into a better moped that will power me better?

Thanks

Harry

how many miles on it? how much compression does it have? might be time fora top end rebuild.

Re: Tomos lacking power??

it only has 350mi and has great compression.

how much tho? and dont say "it blows my finger off". compression is one of the most important things on a 2 stroke. the other thing i would look at would be a plugged exhaust port, or plugged exhaust.

I was helping harry out on this. The guy who sold it to him replaced the rings, but when I looked at it, I think that he did so because it looks like it was seized at one time. I agree that we need to check the compression on a guage, so what should it look like?
