Hung reed?Also with mine I had air leaks forever on the bottom end. I fixed it when I stopped caring about gaskets, chucked the crank bearing shims, and put the cases together with Hondabond.
Tomos? The cheapest/most available/least ripped base gasket is best, preferably with a thin coating of High Tack or Indian Head.
Any time I see this kind of issue, my immediate thought is it's an air leak. Could be your base gasket(s), could be your head gasket, could be your bottom end (crank seals). Intake gasket issues are pretty common on Puch top ends in my experience, too.Since the problems started when you installed the kit, I'd look at every gasket mating surface that was touched to kit it. Grab your ca
It's probably clutches. That's what it is on Tomos 90% of the time.You could try setting your idle lower. The clutches tend to rattle when the idle is too high. Stiffer springs take care of the problem pretty well, plus they make it easier to do wheelies. However, if you had a shop do the top end for you, I don't know if you'll be up for clutch springs.Rattly Tomos clutches
Sounds like you have a leaky float, a bad float needle, a corroded float needle seat, or a mismatched float/needle/body combination (can happen with clone carbs).
Basically:Everyone knows the Master lock is just a padlock that's easy to cut, so it sucks.TRIMAX is not a real brand, and I doubt anyone has one of their poopy turd locks, so you probably won't get a real review. It looks the part, but there's no way to know how strong it is.Either way, your moped will probably get stolen. That's just the way it is.You can buy a U-lock at a
Easiest thing to do is use the stock airbox with holes drilled in it and a circle of low-density foam in place of the stock metal screen. All the flow you need. On a Pug, you'll have to angle the carb to keep the airbox retainer clip from rubbing against the frame and coming open.
Haven't decided what vanity plate to get for the TSM yet.
I don't understand why everyone overthinks mopeds so much.If you are getting holes in your piston but running way cool, it sounds like your ignition is screwed up, but not necessarily your point timing. Your ignition could be shorting out at random times due to a faulty condenser, coil, kill switch, points, or wiring, which will cause your ignition to spark at random times. Double check you
Not me, but I have too many hobbies. If I'm not wrenching on a moped, I'm riding a bicycle or skateboarding or playing music or working on amps or watching cool movies or going to see bands or writing songs or reading or something.
You just don't get cultural relativism, man. That's just how it works here.
Mine:This hauled 10 people and 10 bikes from Richmond to the last Dead Peds rally. It's currently my cold weather wimp machine used for getting to work in comfort.
Why would you even do this?! These motors were designed in such a way that the bearings get lubricated. If the bearings don't roll smooth enough after coating them in two stroke oil, you need new bearings. There is no reason to pack your bearings in grease, and it is not OK.
An aftermarket crank isn't needed unless you're doing stiff clutch springs and/or a TJT variator. Assuming your stock crank is in good shape, it will be fine.
doublepostfailThe things holding you back (besides mechanical ability) (sorry had to take the cheap shot) (rib rib) are top end porting, intake diameter, carb diameter, tiny reed valve, restrictive exhaust, and shallow variator ramp plate. A cylinder kit (DR is recommended) will solve one of those problems, but you still need to deal with the rest. The easiest way to fast town is to buy a kit an
25 minuets? I guess you do what you gotta do. Sometimes you gotta dance with the guy even if you're not that into him.Nice score.
Thread tl;dr - adding fuel to the fire.I like V1s, Hobbits, even A35s, but my favorite I've owned is my Peugeot TSM. The best of all time might be a Derbi of some sort.
The child doesn't have any say in being born, riding in a car, wearing pants, or going to school either. People are way too uptight about children. I was thinking about how it would be rad to design a protective roll cage backpack that would protect a child in the event of a crash.This is one of many reasons I don't plan on having children.
You can do that, but you'll have an easier time getting over your fear of aluminum and running an Airsal. I ran a previously-seized garbage one for a long time. I think the new owner is still running it. Rips hard.
Just what the world needs. Hate edge moped gangs causing a ruckus and harshing everyone's vibes at all the rallies.
Yes. It needs the air cleaner.No, 25:1 is not needed. Your mix is fine.You need to clean the carburetor properly. This includes pulling the welch plug, the little screw in the top of the carb body, and the emulsion tube above the main jet, then soaking in a carb cleaner bucket. After that, you need to spray everything out with compressed air and then put it back together. If the problem devel
Whoa, best thread 2013. Lots of mature people, and I have learned a lot. In fact, I think I have learned all I need to know about mopeds and have grown as a person. All my mopeds and moped-related items will be for sale to promote further spiritual growth, and I will be in the market for a nice pair of walking shoes. Thank you all.
Yes, something like that, but I would look for fiberglass reeds rather than metal if you're replacing them anyway. After that, you can try your hand at porting the stock cylinder if you want to get your hands dirty. You won't be going super fast with at 15 SHA and the stock cylinder, but it's a start, and it will be more reliable than stock. Also check your timing and point gap t
You are either getting no vacuum at the carb due to a massive air leak, or your float needle isn't letting gas into the carb, or your jets are blocked.
VIN plate is still intact. Not thrashed. Posted conspicuously on Craigslist. Looks legit to me.
Do your research. You won't like the work required to put a Chinese turdmotor on there, and you won't like it when you try to put on a 70cc kit and break a ring, fail to upjet, don't upgrade your exhaust, or some other such nonsense.
Why don't you just cut it off and get a new set of grips? Tomos grips are generally kind of lame.
Uhh you can do it if you want, but I don't get it. There are go-fast parts available for the 102 and the Garelli to make them whoop the Spree's ass. Putting a Lifan engine on there is going to be a whole lot of work. It will be especially tough on the 102 considering how the engine mounts.
