How long do Tomos engines last?

Matthew Wight /

Hello all. I am considering buying a 2005 Tomos Targa LX.

I want to put a 70cc Eurocylinder Speed Kit, with a performance carb and a performance biturbo exhaust.

How many miles can go before the engine needs a rebuild?

How many times can I rebuild the engine?

How many miles will the tranny on a tomos targa last?

your better off going with the airsal kit sold at moped warehouse than that knock off eurocylinder kit. or buy it from ikes bikes. both guys sell a kit called the raptor kit. its a specially put together kit that contains everything you want. and it all works together perfectly.

eurocylinder went out of business a long time ago and was bought by athena. the kit cheeters sells is the tccd kit. its a chinese copy of the eurocylinder. ask chris at moped warehouse about it or do a search here for his post on them. you'll be surprised by what you read.

i like tomos, and i feel some effort was put into designing them, but i think they use cheap material. Great fast bikes, but if given the option of like a puch or etc... i would go for those first. its probally worth getting.

well assuming I keep the stock engine how, does anyone know how many miles they go before needing a rebuild? What about the transmission?

I looked on the moped warehous site all I could find is this:

Anyone know how many miles those engines need before having a rebuild and or how many times they can be rebuilt?

Re: How long do Tomos engines last?

well I talked to the guy from mountain moped and he said he has seen bikes with 15.ooo miles. tomos that is.

mine has around 7k and is still fine. all I have a is a tecno pipe and air filter.
