also , it has a 36 in back and 18 upfront if that helps , i bored out the exhaust as much as possible , bored out the intake to 17mm it runs with no exhaust , right now the compressions at 140 l have no clue whatsup with this thing i stuck a peice of tubing in as the exhaust and it runs ok but bogs at his speeds

Re: help?

Jake! I am not sure what the problem is, but you never wash a bike with filter like that, you have to put a plastic bag on the filter! If that happened, that means the water got through the cylinder, and it might cause problems.

a #72 carb jet? 18 in front? 36 in rear? those numbers dont sound right. tomos only uses a 25, 26, and 31 tooth sprocket in the front. and maybe a 24, but i'm not sure.

anyway, drain the water out of your exhaust.

yea but i still dont see how you got an 18 on the front. the locating pin wouldnt line up. and an 18 would have the chain riding where the locatin pin is.

DonP, don't cloud the issue with the facts!

Re: help?

18/36 sounds more like a Puch. Doesn't Tomos usually a larger front and smaller rear? I think that's what I remember hearing.

He said it's a Tomos Targa, but with Jake you never know. He tends to say things and change his story over time.
