TKS, I'm inclined towards the 24T.
Hey, I'm getting a Technigas exhaust, 58 jet, but was wondering if ya'll would recommend a 22 or 24T rear sprocket. I am 240lbs. and ride a '07 Streetmate. I have VERY mild incline hills and many stoplights, although the speed limit in my city is 35 mph. I need to be able to accelerate with traffic and keep up with traffic and do at least 35 mph. Please let me know what ya'
I'm sorry I don't. Mine came with pegs, not pedals.
Awesome. Very helpful. Wouldn't a Unipod air intake be an improvement or does that require tinkering because of back pressure or something?
Actually for performance upgrade. But hey, the Tomos speedometer is indeed crap. I replaced it twice under warranty. Can you recommend an inexpensive gps speedo, handheld or mountable? TKS.
TKS Marv. I thought that's what it was. Wanted to see if there were any updates.
I've got $300 and I want to upgrade my '07 Streetmate. I'm 250 lbs. and would like at least 38 mph. from the bike on flats. Very low-grade hills here in Virginia. What do ya'll think of this?:* 27T front* 24T rear -- to still maintain some pickup* Unipod filter* 58 jet* some kind of aftermarket exhaust.TKS.
what kind of exhaust would you recommend. I like the look of the Technigas, but it's expensive. The bi-turbo just doesn't appeal to me. Is there anything else?
Yes, tried that; no results.
Does anyone know where I can buy the "Star speed kit" ? It's the exhaust that looks just like the factory exhaust on new Tomos mopeds (black with chrome heat shield) that's 3 inches shorter. TKS.
I'm trying to reach you for ques. about upgrading my Streetmate. You're the pro. TKS. Please e-mail me at: Timmbo1972@HOTMAIL.COM.
How many mph top end do ya'll think there is between a 22t and 24t sprocket?
My town has nothing but some *very mild* hills; everything else is as flat as my girlfriend.
Okay I see that this was similarly discussed a few topics down in "Tomos Sprockets," so if you don't respond it's understandable. However, some of you have this specific bike. BTW, I weigh 250 lbs. Later.
Hey ya'll as we say in VA. I've got an '07 Streetmate and I'm going to do my first mod; exhaust and new jet will probably follow. I live in a totally flat city, so my first problem isn't acceleration. Most of our speed limits are 35mph and I just want to be able to keep up. Do you think I should go with a 22t OR 24t rear sprocket upgrade from the original 31? Thanks,
Once again. Leave people the f#@k alone with this search thing.....people are fallible and some just like questions phrased their way specifically OR like to chat.
Is there a way to actually hook the moped up to some diagnostic equipment and tune
Yes, I have the same dillemma; I was considering asking you guys. My '07 Streetmate shifts around 10 mph to second when I'm not fulling opening the throttle. What gives?
What do ya'll think of the Raptor Speed Kit for $330 from mopedkit.com? Just wondered if anyone had any experience or opinion? ~ Timm.
'Canadian Tomos' had some good advice on reaching 45mph w/out 'mod'ing the engine. Still curious to look at the kits. I believe "Steve's" had some, but I can't seem to find them under 'performance' on that site. Any advice for locating the kits?
Yes, it sounds as if you might have an 'addictive personality.' You may want to seek profesional counseling. Insurance will _not_ cover the costs of rehab. as I have been throught this myself. I think the Streetmate is a highly addictive machine. Had some 'Harley guys' pass me the other day and guve me a wave -- didn't help my ego-centric personality. I wish you the b
Canadian Tomos,I lived in Ottawa from '95 - '97 while my father was at the U.S. Embassy -- loved the country.Yes, my goal is to keep up with traffic as well. I'm not trying to break any speed records or test the limits of my imagination and bike in doing so. You seem to have a very level head and have become my new mentor ........ Congratulations on winning 1st. place. Thank you
Dad always said, "If it was supposed to be *that* way, they would have made it *that* way. And so I have to ask myself why before I go buy a performance upgrade kit if it's a good idea. Sure I'd love more speed and acceleration, but maybe the manufacturer knows something I don't about the _true_ capacity of the bike for speed and durability. Can I possibly upgrade TO JUST A
Deciding between a scooter and '07 Tomos Streetmate..........I definitely like the look of the moped better and I love that you all are fanatics about your mopeds. The bigger wheels are better for a guy my size—250 lbs.—and I don’t look like a circus act like I do on the scooter. The displacement is about hte same—49.?? cc’s. I want to upgrade
Thanks for your input. I just found a site that sells _complete_ performance upgrade kits for the A55 engine. While I imagine anything like this will void my 6 mth./ 4,000 mile warranty, I will wait until it's expired after any _initial corrections_ in product defect have been corrected. Nice to be an affiliate of the Moped Army family. Thanks. PS -- Also, if anyone can recommend other
I'm thinking about buying a new '07 Tomos Streetmate. But, I hear the thing only goes about 28 mph. Considering my weight of 250 lbs., what can I do to increase performance in simple ways? I'm in NO way mechanically inclined. I have no mechanic experience and can barely change the oil on my car. What are some simple mods and how will they help me? Thanks.
