So my 1985 Tomos A35 was running a little rough the other day. When I applied any throttle, it would cause the engine to die.
So I did a quick search on mopedarmy, and someone suggested that I take off my air filter, to see if that could be the problem. So I took it off, and wala, it ran better than ever.
Now I bought a stock air filter for my encarwi carb, and put it in today. It runs better than it did before, like it doesn't die when I add throttle, but not as well as it did when I had no filter in the carb. Before the engine was hot, I was having a little trouble with the whole throttle killing the engine thing. After it warmed up a bit, it got better, but the top speed is only 25 mph (used a GPS).
So that got me thinking. Maybe I should remove my air box and run a bigger air filter? I like the idea of making it louder (no worries about neighbors or anyone complaining), and it ran so well without an air filter in it.
Of course I'm just a 16 year old tinkering around with his 1985 Tomos A35, so I have no clue. Some tips would be appreciated.
Also, if I should put in a new performance air filter, how do I go about it? I heard something about removing the air box.
Once again I have an encarwi carb. Please help me.
