Tomos Update #2

I woke up a bit earlier this morning so I could go take the Tomos for a spin. Before it started snowing. She ran okay this morning. Started on the second kick, and gave me no problems. It’s SLOOOOW, idk if it’s just because it’s only 49cc, or that it was 27 degrees this morning, or that theres something wrong with the engine, or carb. But if I can’t get it faster with stock parts I see a carb, tune pipe, and maybe 80cc kit in its future. One of the bigger issues, the sticky rear brake seems to have fixed itself. I think it just needed to be used. I did a few full stops just using the rear and it didn’t lock up at all.

Unfortunately the speedometer stopped working which is a bummer. I think I’m going to take out the factory speedo and make a tray with a strap to hold my phone inside the factory gauge pod. Then just use a speedo app.


Also non of the lights work. At all. So I’ll have to figure that out. In the mean time I ordered some cheap LES blinkers, since 2 of mine are broken and the bulbs might need to be replaced anyway.
