All you do is turn the red switch to the left and push the pedals backwards.

Hey Grey, can you just ride the ped and start it? Is Tomos the only ped that you peddle backwards? thanks Jim.

Yea pedal like a bike then pedal backwards to start or start on the stand. I think a few start by pedaling backwards but I am not sure.

Push the red button of the intriment panel on the right side and push the button to the run position. Turn the choke on. Then as the bike sits on its center stand begin to kick the pedal on the left side of the bike backwards. Make sure your oil level is resonable and fuel also. Brakes, lights, etc. also need to be checked before riding.

Re: Do you crank backwards to start a tomos

i betcha there's a moped been sitting in some little old lady's garage for decades .. and she'd give it to you for nothing if you just asked.. if not right next door, the next house down.. or across the street.

get some kinda receipt.. and dont forget to look around for the owner's manual before you leave.
