You need to adjust the idle 1st.Main jet #58 is just for wide open throttle. Start by turning air screw all the way in "gently" till it stops, and back it out 1 and a half turns. Back out idle screw until slide is closed " not touching slide" . Turn until just contacts slide plus 1 full turn in opening slide. Start it up with the choke on and turn the air screw slowly in or out and slowly move the choke off till you can get it to run with the choke off. Than adjust idle screw " the one that moves the slide up and down to set the RPM. If you cant get her to idle with the choke off and the carb is air tight on the intake manifold. Carb might be to big. If you can get her to idle but it runs ruff I will try to help you tune the carb further. Good luck.
I am an actual Tomos mechanic, and all of you guys are a bunch of shadetree troglodyte mechanics who think that mopeds are the same thing as motorcycles because you have never actually worked on one.
A Tomos does not have "shift forks" "neutral" or "clutch cable" and the transmission is not built into the crankcase.
A tomos has a 2 speed auto that is a separate unit from the motor itself. it shifts between 1st and second via a centrifugal clutch, so if your having a hard time shifting then you either need new clutch springs and or shim/replace the clutch stones. should only take an hour if you know what you are doing.
you need to see if it is running out of gas try to crank with choke on an force it to run or see if it trys to run you can use a primer can with raw fuel and feed it from the back of carb when it stars an see if it stays running then if it does it is running out of gas may be float setting or petcock on fuel tank
Start the bike with the lights off. The lights rob electricity from the starting system.
Kill switch off side stand up and gas valve on
Bike should be in neutral If the engine is cold, use the choke when starting. Twist the throttle about 1/8 of a turn while kicking the starter. Turn the choke off shortly after the engine starts and certainly before driving away.
Go to a Tomos dealer or any dealer, Yamaha, Honda, etc., and ask them to show you the general owner maintenance needed for your bike or any similar bike.
LEARN TO STOP. Sure, you can ride a bicycle and you have already ridden your Tomos, but you have not practiced for an accident. STOP! ! ! A car just pulled out in front of you! You do not have the time to think, " Now where are the brakes on this motorcycle? " Stopping needs to be a reflex. Go to an empty parking lot and practice emergency stops. Pretend a car or a child is suddenly in your path. STOP! Repeat this at faster and faster speeds for about one hour. Now when you need to stop you will do it automatically without even thinking... I just saved your life.
