I ordered up a 45mm MK cylinder kit for my Tomos A55. Looks fine but seems like there is quite a bit of taper in the cylinder. Ring gap is .003" (tight) at the top of the bore, and .01" (loose) at the bottom. By my math that is around .003" taper in the cylinder bore, which seems like a lot for a little baby engine like this! It is tight enough at the top that the piston skirt actua
I'm in south bay. Sounds like I can probably make excuses if I get any inquiries from the fuzz.Just gotta put a new cylinder on the ped so it runs again :)
Realized to reg my bike (Tomos Streetmate noped) as a moped in CA I am supposed to have pedals.Any CA residents chime in? Will I get hassled by the cops for not having pedals? Bike has a pipe but nothing obnoxious.
I have a Tomos Streetmate that starts and runs great... EXCEPT it needs to idle for a few minutes before you can give it any throttle at all. It starts right up (first or second kick) and idles perfect. Any throttle at all though (even the slightest bit), and it kills. If I let it idle for a minute I can open the throttle and it will run fine for a few seconds and then die. If it idles for a few m
Most of the cree devices come in a variety of color temps... so you can pick from the more "warm"(yellow) to more blue.
Looking around at the HID ballasts it seems like powering without a battery onboard is pretty unlikely. Even the 35W units need 50W for a few seconds during the startup phase. I think this is probably pushing it for my idling tomos.I'm going to think about if I can hack one of the high output LED's into an HID projector housing.
Is that a mountain bike HID light? Looks amazing with a good cutoff as well.
Which home depot HID flashlight did you try? That might be an interesting possibility.
I recently built an LED tail light for my moped. I'm pretty pleased with the result as it is MUCH brighter than the factory light (more info here if anyone is interested: blog entry). Now I'm hoping to improve the headlamp. The stock incandescent bulb is terrible. Good enough to avoid crashing in complete darkness but otherwise mostly useless.I was thinking of trying a chinese HID headli
