    faded blue spark asked my buddy who helped me with it said that it wasnt sparking fast enough not enough rotational spark from the magneto what ever that means

    what markings am i looking for i dont see any markings to tell me if they are lined up

  • Anonymous Sep 13, 2009

    still no markings but i took 2 pics to show you what im looking at do you have an email address where i can send them too

  • Anonymous Sep 14, 2009

    those pics are with the piston being top dead center so i cant see any marks on the magneto flywheel that tell me what is what...if you see something on the flywheel or in those pics that could tell me something great if not i have nothing new

    do you know how to fine tune this motor???

  • Anonymous Sep 18, 2009

    well i took it today for an extended run and i noticed after a while i would kick start it and it would start then die...now at the moment i am not running any fuel filters there was a inline fuel filter but it wouldnt let gas pass thru into the carb...also i noticed that when im driving it and im taking off..that it is a bit sluggish im not sure if its a throttle cable or something along those lines.. but i am on a killer search for a fuel filter that will go inline but so far all ive been able to find are huge bulky bastards lol..but i guess its a matter of possibly messing with the carb a little and with the throttle?? let me know what you think

  • Anonymous Sep 18, 2009

    and when i mean ride i took it for like a 1 hour ride maybe...but all in all thing ran like a gem i need to adjust the breaks and buy a new tire for the front...other than that it downshifts and upshifts decently but i am not sure i have or need to change some tranny fluid on that bad boy and also i wanna change the engine oil...

  • ollie reece-jones
    ollie reece-jones Sep 18, 2009

    ok buddy to adjust the carb you just fiddle with this screw normally the manual says turn this all the way in and unsccrew it so many time we will go for 2 1/2 turns out its the mixture screw im ntelling you about also the engine oil use SILKOLENE COMP 2 PLUS (it is 2 stroke isnt it) and the transmision fluid use SILKOLENE TITAN ATF 3000 add 220 ml to you transmision and thats it good luck buddy also i will send the picture tonight when i get home

The front wheel on my tomos bullet moped won’t turn freely.


3 possible causes to investigate
1) The front brakes are binding. That is, not fully releasing after the front brake is applied.
2) The wheel bearings require adjusting.
3) The wheel bearings require lubricating

My 50 cc moped starts idles accelerates great but at about 12 mph it levels off and just flutters


Remove the carburetor then remove the float bowl on the bottom of the carb. Now clean the carb using spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store.

My Tomos moped starts fine no problem but after 1/2 km or so it just stops like someone turned it off. I kick start over and over and it will not start. The I wait maybe 10 minutes and then off I go for...


Ok sounds mostly like a carb problem i would have it rebuilt or just cleaned also check spark plugs oil gas. If that does not fix the problem id get a mechanic to check it out it may need major repairs or just somthing simple went wrong.

Brand new (69)miles won't stay running kicks but dies,still on 1st tank of gas tried reserve same thing can hear gas in tank.sprint moped not motorcycle 50cc


1. does fuel flow from the fuel hose to the carb?
2. do the floats in the carb allow gas to enter?
3. is the filter screen in the carb clean?
4. Is the main jet clean?
5. Is the pilot screw port clean?
6. See mopedarmy.com or mopedriders.org

if all else fails turn off the choke

Hey i have a 94 tomos targa a35 and i put it together an now it will hit an try to run but it wont stay running even long enough to rev up it jus hits a lick then dies an i cant figure out the problem why...


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

How to get my moped to start ? I've already changed the spark plug.


IF IT HAS BEEN SITTING FOR LONGER THAN A MONTH OR SO THE FUEL COULD HAVE GONE BAD DRAIN FUEL AND PUT NEW GAS IN IT , THEN DRAIN CARB BUY LOOSTENING SCREW ON BASE UNTIL FUEL BECOMES CLEAR
