I got a replacement rubber tip needle, plastic banjo and gasket for the lower portion of carburetor from treatland, installed them into the carb, took 1 mile trip to the store, went shopping (did not shut off fuel valve) on the way back no amount of kick-starts was able to start the bike, had to walk it home. Reinstalled the old rubber tip needle as well as old banjo back into the carb, installed
Yes I did change the spark plug, also noticed the starting issue doesn't occur if i switch off petcock after the ride, I checked carburetor (rubber needle tip) if it's letting gas trough by pressinig up onto plastic banjo and and it doesn't drip fuel in closed position so may need to find replacement gasket for the bottom of the carburetor, thank you!
I have kick-start mostly stock Tomos Sprint A55 (with mlm pipe) with over 20k milesbefore it would start just fine after 1, 2 or 3 kicks, but lately it's been really hard to start it, it would eventually start but after about 20 or so kicks, yes the weather has gotten colder to about 50F but even if choke is used it still takes many kicks just to get it to run, anyone knows what could be the
Tomos was dripping oil all the time when parked, even after wiping oil off from the bottom, after a ride new drips would form under the bike, already tried replacing case gasket with brand new one few times, it was still dripping, then after reading all the positive reviews purchased "motoseal gasket maker" and applied it to both sides of the case gasket, bolted on cover, waited 24 hours
There are 2 different strategies to know exactly how much fuel is left in my Tomos which I've used:1) Cateye Velo 7 Bicycle Computer (setting tire size to 20" equals 16" Tomos size) attached magnet to the stamped wheel using plumbers epoxy putty, for the censor. The computer has an option "trip miles" that can be reset to "zero" with every fill up by holding main
I used electric compressed air device, had to remove spark plug and clean out everywhere including wire harness, got it to start/run.
The other day it rained all day and night so much rain the cars were half-way in water in some areas, anyone else had their bike parked outside during that time?Had my Tomos locked and covered, the water didn't get below it but it rained so much, couldn't start it today, will wait a day to see if can get dry enough to start.
Thank you for that valuable information.
I just purchased AT-205, would it be safe to use inside Tomos transmission to restore seals and hopefully avoid oil leaks?Or would it be bad for the rubber/cork brake shoes?(The back of the packaging says Do not use in brake systems).
Thank you very much Paul!
Hi, I'm looking to unscrew/remove Tomos petcock, if looking from the ground below the frame up onto the petcock, which way do I turn the mating nut in order to unscrew it - clockwise? or counter-clockwise?(Don't want to tighten it by mistake when replacing).
Paul H: Oh man... I didn't think of that, because I just replaced petcock about a year ago but I do have another spare one will try replacing it to see if that helps.You might really be onto something here because when I looked on the side where petcock is I wondered how the heck did those wires (for custom flasher relay/turn signals) between petcock and engine got all wet.
I have Tomos Sprint 2013 A55 Kick-Start Premix edition when it was parked/chained to a lamp post some moron sat on it and because security chain wasn't wrapped too tight, the bike was laying on the ground still chained with huge puddle of gas all around, ever since then it had a noticeable leak underneath the bike. I managed to attach a piece of shamwow (absorbing cloth) securing it with ta
I have a pre-mix Tomos, if I was to replace the large oil seal under the sprocket, could I do it without disassembling entire engine and just use drywall screws to pull the old seal from outside and replace it with new one?
If your Tomos uses CDI try replacing that, also voltage regulator. After rainy weather had an issue where they must've shorted out, replacing both of them got the bike back up and running.
Hi, was just wondering what are the causes for moped oil leak?I have Tomos ST 2013 and if left parked overnight there's almost always a drop of oil that forms underneath the engine which after many months formed a small but fresh puddle underneath the bike. I already bough and used brand new case gasket, installed new oil drain bolt with shim, I turn off fuel valve when bike is parked but tha
I use "cateye velo 7" bicycle computer, it's reliable & batteries last many years. Because Tomos has mag-wheels and not spokes, had to attach a magnet to the wheel using plumbers putty and some goop, works nicely and it's reliable. The only thing is holder for the computer itself has 2 wires on top which are exposed (bad design) but they can be sealed off using goop or some
Tomos is a brand, Sprint is a make/model, A55 is the engine.Also for heavy rider you may want to install rear sprocket with more teeth for better torque such as 28T, however top speed will decrease as well.
I weight 240lb and often carry about 50lb's worth of groceries on a stock Tomos Sprint 2013 A55, at some point I even rode to the beach together with a lady on the rear of a seat who weights about 140lbs, the speed and torque obviously decreases but it's doable, just remember to use extra large shims on the bolts that hold shocks so they don't slip off.
You know there's an easy solution to prove sellers worth, this is how it can be done:Seller can list a "dummy" item on ebay that nobody will buy and in the bottom of listing in description he can put a code something like "mopedarmy12345"to let buyer know it's them, then show link of the listing to the buyer so the buyer can open ebay page and see the seller's fe
Hey Sam, any update on your bike?Were you able to retrieve it?
Hi! no, I didn't even know drain bolt used a gasket, I have sheets of paper gasket material, can i just make my own gasket for the bolt and use that?
I recently noticed my Tomos sprint 2013 (with over 20k miles) constantly has wet oily puddle underneath it when parked, when i look under the engine there's always a drop of oil hanging from the drain bolt even if i wipe it off next time its always there, it doesn't smell like gas so I think it's oil, the thing is I used a good case gasket with no rips and torqued the drain bolt tig
What are some of the moped issues that took you longest time to solve?I'll list the 3 issues:1) Used mopeds for about 10 years, the first one purchased was old A35 Tomos bullet it was old rusty and constantly getting clogged due to all the rust but the one major issue with it was after a long day of rain it couldn't be started, after trying to get it to work for a while, gave it to an ex
Well.....After countless of hours swapping parts, covers, wheels sprocket I finally found out what the issue was and solved it.....The issue was: bolts holding A55 Engine to the frame were loose....Engine could be moved a little by handAfter getting all 3 bolts tight, the issue went away.
In New York you NEVER want to leave your bike outside even for 10 seconds without locking it to a stationary object, one time I left my bike outside near grocery store to check if they had the soda I wanted, it took maybe 10 or 15 seconds, the bike was gone and the guy who was just sitting outside "didn't see nothing'".Similar thing happened once when I left a carry-on bag on t
Did as Dickie suggested, removed front fender, I've also installed different rear wheel with brand new sprocket and when the humming sound happens, it's reduced by 80% so it's not bothersome, thank you for your help!@Fred: do you use regular or synthetic 10W-30 oil? also how many miles do your clutch corks last with it?
Did you finally get one?I was considering getting one for my Tomos but since it's mostly stock except for MLM pipe I'm not sure if it will improve acceleration or top speed.
The front fender? it's barely holding there with some wires because bolts and the bracket that were holding it have all rusted out, okay I'll try clipping the wires holding the fender and riding without it.
