At the track, you need braking & handling before power. Get some good tires, shocks, springs, thicker stabilizer bar in the back, upgrade those brakes with some quality blank rotors & semi-racing to racing brake pads.You can pick up a short ram or cold air intake on ebay for like $10 but make sure to order a real K&N cone filter too.. don't use the crap filters you get in those p
TPB is awesome and Jack Herer is a great man.. have you guys seen his documentary? forgot the name..another great one is History of Marijuana narrated by Woody Harrelson: the fly-by shot of a max security prison is extremely depressing.I'm glad to be toking in Canada!
Just keep in mind that the performance parts for ruckus' are more expensive. Ruckus as a better top speed but the acceleration would be close to the streetmate.
Stop going to wendy's?.. or any fast food joint for that matter
WHY CAN'T WE CANADIANS FIND SUCH DEALS!!!!Great find man and good luck with the restoration!
I was told the estoril is best used with a kit... probably only good in the top end with everything else stock.I have a 16.16 on a stock cylinder with bullet pipe and it definitelly improved both acceleration & top speed. Now I'm saving for a kit.
check the dellorto direct website for that answer.. I'm 99% sure they do but... eh.. what does that mean to you?
Hey Edgar.. I still haven't tested this 100% but I'm sure you can find the answer online somewhere. If you already have the dellorto 14.12 on your tomos, buy the 16.16 body from treats for $23 and replace all the guts from your 14.12 to the 16.16So far, I can tell you for a fact the air filter side is the same size and your 14.12 plastic intake shim can go into the 16.16... it's a
Yeah you'll need some oil. Someone suggested light atf oil, try that. K&N makes a 'recharge kit' that has a cleaning agent and oil spray to clean and oil mesh filters.
Ha! I was using aluminum tape for a couple days until I realized the right shim was in my 14.12 carb.. at first it wouldn't budge but I finally got it free. The weird thing is, when I installed the carb with the new shim, it couldn't and STILL won't idle. I was convinced it was something else but now I think I should take a second look. :/About the tape thing, expect some glue bu
!http://www.treatland.tv/v/vspfiles/photos/dellorto-filter-sha-metal-KnN-2.jpg!I got this from treatland but it won't fit on my tomos because there's a huge nut in the way. It will fit on SHA carbs without a problem.Its yours for $20 shipped. It's brand new, un-oiled. I have a K&N oil kit so I can oil it for you so it's ready to go.
I just got a Dell 16.16 with techno bullet on an otherwise stock a35. It doesn't blast as much as a kit but it's a decent setup. The great thing is I can just slap on a kit when the time comes and I have cash.I just noticed today on treats.. you can by a Dell 16.16 carb body and just replace all the insides from you 14.12 into that one. It's only $23 and it's a great way to
I just got a techno bullet for a35.. it's the only aftermarket pipe i tried but I like it. It's cheap and ads at least 5kph on flats... up to 10kph if on very slight downhill. Also, the shifting is 10x better! When completely stock, it would be difficult to engage the 2nd gear.
What about a machine shop paid in cash; under the table; done during lunch hours type of thing? lol
scooterstl: Can you give us more details on how to swap the lights out? I need to ditch my stock bucket soon, the bulb is dying and the speedo doesn't work. Please e-mail me some details!! Greatly appreciated man!I'm a complete noob when it comes to wires and watts and whatnot.
Ever cleaned your carb? I certainly hope so.. and if you haven't take a crack at disassembling the carb when you're changing the reeds since you need to remove the carb anyways.
Thanks for the tuning sheet link, Linda.If I was keeping the 14.12 carb I would have a good idea of the jet number.But since I was going with a bigger carb, I wasn't sure what to expect. Looks like 58 to 62 is a decent range.
All guesses welcome!I have an 05 Tomos LX (a35) and I'm planning on putting a Dell 16.16 SHA with Bullet exhaust and K&N air filter. Any ideas at the range of jets I should get?And all comments welcome too! Like, wtf would you buy a bullet or pffft... K&N..
Take a look at how the rear wheel is mounted.. there are sliders on the bottom on each slide. Make sure the wheel is as far back as it can go and make sure it aligned properly by having an equal position along the slider on each side.
Used is the way to go.. I bought one on ebay and it stilll has lots of life left.On a related note, are Treat's belts the same length as stock?
A strap wrench and crescent wrench is all you need to change the weights... like this http://www.northerntool.com/images/product/images/1501539_lg.jpg
+1 on the extra tube if its the first time you do it and its always nice to be able to change a flat in the same day when you have an extra.Also, get some tire irons, 2 should do, they are extremely useful!!I'm running some sava 2.25x17 slicks.. not the highest quality but better than the made in china $10 shit found online.
+1 for Amsoil... however, in Canada, the price jumped by $4 or 25%!!
I have stock sava tires 2.25x14 and on the front wheel, they rub against the fenders... not sure about rear.
Awesome, I just tanked up today at 32:1 with syn. again. My ped is all stock. I ran rich the first time since the bike has been in storage for at least 3 years. This is my first ped and I love it... I wish it came with turn signals because some jerks on the road don't know what hand signs mean!!! But for the rest, its all good.
I'm using full synthetic oil right now with a approx 27:1 ratio. After using half the fuel with a new plug, I checked the plug and it was a brown to dark brown colour. I believe I should be aiming for a caramel colour right? How high is too high for the ratio? At 40:1, do I run the risk of seizing? Appreciate the feedback!
