All Batavus mopeds, powered by the M-48 engine cut out at $25 mph. There's
nothing you can do. It is "governed" by several things, of which the muffler

In a message dated 99-10-01 05:51:07 EDT, you write:

<< But; the engine - is so warm.. (it feels almost too warm!)
Could it be something with the exhaust system ?
Or the front cylinder head ? >>
As I said, I don't know what it is if the ticking occurs when the engine is
running. All engines feel very hot after running, as gasoline combusts at
temperatures around 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat is dissipated
through the cylinder wall to the cooling fins to the air around an air cooled
engine. Also as a general rule an Air cooled engine will run hotter than a
liquid cooled design.

My 98 tomos sprints engine recently started making this strange kind of
rattaling noise when I run it at higher speeds(above 30mph I have a bi-turbo
exhaust). It sounds like you put a small small pebble in a glass jar and
shook it but with a more metallic sound. I checked to make sure that any nuts
were loose and everything seemed to be tight. I was wondering if anyone could
help me identify what may be wrong with it. I haven't noticed any
significant changes in the way the bike runs but I am still worried that it
might be a serious problem.

I have no idea whether you can see it online or not.. I bought mine in a
shop in Holland (because I live there, if you were wondering why :)) I'd ask
the Warehouse if they got a kit and send some pics.. I remember I paid about
$70.- (if I estimate the current rate right, because I don't know it
exactly) for the cylinder and piston. Maybe these sets are cheaper in the
US, but then again, the best racing sets are from Italy..

Does anyone have experience either positive or negative with repair
facilities in the Los Angeles area? The ones I'm aware of are:

Myron's Mopeds Fullerton
Cycletime Los Angeles
Burbank Kawasaki Burbank
Kirks Motorsports Arcadia

Anyone I missed?

I would like to have my '79 Puch Magnum MKII put in good running order. It
has several problems including a weird "vibration" at 25 - 30 mph and
produces quite a bit of smoke. It has 9000+ on the odometer, so maybe an
overhaul is in order? It seems to run well enough, with the exceptions
noted above.

What is the general opinion of the 60 and 70 cc upgrades? Worth the ~$350?
Is this something a do-it-yourselfer can tackle?

If this information is covered in a FAQ somewhere, would someone point me in
the right direction?

Thanks,

Morris,
Your vibration could come from either of the following:
a/ if you have spoked wheels, they need to be trued (balanced)
b/ some beads in your tires are broken (how old are they?)
c/ your exhaust is all clogged up (nneds de-carbonisation)
d/ your drive chain is too loose (play should only be about 3/4 of an inch)
e/ your spark plug is of the wrong heatrange
f/ you're using some junk 2-cycle oil; use RedLine (made in CA) that's the
best.
I can also sell you a (very good) shop manual. E-mail me directly for
pricing.

I sent a copy of the actual moped law from the NJ Division of Motorvehicles
to Mike as follows:
The laws are created and regulated by the State of NJ Division of
Motovehicles and you should contact them for the latest copy of the NJ moped
law. Here is the original version issued:
A motorized bicycle is a "MOPED" with a brake horse power of 1.5hp and a max
speed on a level surface of 25mph. It must be an automatic transmission and
be able to be pedaled like a bicycle. A helmet and basic liability insurance
is required.
Here are a few additonal facts as of 10/5/99 : NJ Moped laws are you be at
least 15 years old to get a moped permit. After you pass a written test you
can drive during daylight hours only. After you pass a road test you get a
permanent moped license. Any one that has an automobile license can drive a
moped with no special license. You must wear a helmet, have a registration,
insurance and license plate. Insurance is $78.00 a year at this time. Pedals
required, 25mph maximum speed and 1.5 brake horsepower. This law was
effective in June of 1983 and cut the number of moped sales in in NJ by
approximate 70%. To see some mopeds and more information see my latest web
page WWW.STEVESMOPED.COM and make sure you see the parts and accessories

Hello,
I finally got my Yamaha QT50 going after sitting for a few years. It
will only run when the key is in the "start" position. when it gets running
I switch it to "run" and it shuts off. I only has spark when it is in the
"start" position. I dont have the key but move it with a screwdriver. Could
that be the problem. the battery is also dead. The bike idles great in the
start position but when you give it gas it bogs and spits gas out where the
air cleaner goes but keeps running. the rpm's dont change either when I give
it gas. Its like it is being choked to death. It has exellent compression
and I just cleaned the carburetor. what could be the problem?

Thanks

ps. if u have a yamaha Qt50 key I will buy it!

sounds like you need a new keyswitch. you dont need battery to run but your lights will burn out without it. make sure carb is clean, i had problems with mine. make sure muffler is not plugged up. sounds like that's what the problem is.

In regard to the gradual speed loss of your moped:
On you 1993 Tomos Sprint moped you did not state the mileage but being 6
years old and assuming it has over 3,000 miles carbonization and backpressure
increase and Bi-turbo exhaust system would really put some power back into
the moped. You will also experience stronger shifts because the motor will
have more power. You should clean out your exhaust part and install a new
larger Bi-turbo exhaust gasket when changing your exhaust system. All
Bi-turbo's and Bi-turbo replacement parts are in stock.
In regard to your speedometer not working:
First disconnect the speedometer cable. See if both ends are in the cable and
give them a spin to see if the cable is not broken. Next spin the front
wheel and see if the speedometer drive is spinning the cable. Next spin the
input to the speedometer to see if it is not binding and see if it moves the
speedometer needle. Replace whatever part fails this test. Do not put a new
speedometer cable on till you verify that the other components are working.

Subject: Re: My moped Bulb burnout

In regard to your 1993 Tomos Sprints headlight burning out:

The headlamp bulb on the Tomos moped's Hi/Low beam is subject to severe
vibration. The filament in the bulb is really taking a beating from vibration
and bumps. We have a special bulb with a heaver filament and a higher rating
than the stock Tomos 12 volt 35/35watt bulb. We have 45/45w and 60w/60w
heavy duty bulbs. The Tomos magneto is putting out 80 + watts into a voltage
regulator and the 45 watt bulb takes 10 extra watts of power and actually
keep the regulator cooler and prolong all the bulbs like by using up some
excess power. We have been installing the bulbs in mopeds that burn up bulbs
fast. If your moped is modified and goes over 40mph then the 60 watt bulb is
in order. If you need a long life bulb call us and ask for the heavy duty
bulb there's always plenty in stock.

On the moped auction you saw a Kinetic for $799.00. We can ship the Kinetic
anywhere in the continental USA for $749.95 total freight included. The
Kinetic is made in India and is a low cost moped. You get what you pay for.
They do not have good hill climbing ability and the reliability is only fair.
They are primarily sold at mass merchants with no service or support. The
mopeds are not set up correctly at mass merchants and give mopedding a bad
name. We keep the parts in stock for the Kinetic mopeds too. IF you can save
up I recommend a Tomos from an authorized dealer that sets up the moped
properly and offers great service and support. All of our mopeds are
completely assembled, tested then repacked for shipping.

Just came across your site and it is great. I didn't see anything about
Bianchi mopeds and was curious because I have one but know little about
it. I was given a Bianchi Cyclomoteur Pliable, "Super Aquilotto".
It pedals at a moderate rate as a one speed bike, and has a two-cycle 48 cc
engine under the seat that engages a friction wheel to the rear tire.
Tops out at 30 mph on level ground, but the great thing is that the
frame folds just forward of the pedals into a 3x3 ft. unit. It will easily
fit in a car trunk or the baggage
compartment of a small airplane, which is what I use it for most of the
time. Any ideas about its vintage, how many produced, or if part are
available? Thanks.

From: cris lepage Subject: Honda Express starter problems

For all the owners of early Honda Express nopeds, I have a fix for a
broken starter wind up spring that won't cost but a dollar to fix.
This involves converting the wind up mechanism to a kick start setup
that works and is so easy, you can start the engine with your hand. If
anyone is interested in this conversion, just email me and I'll send you
a write up on what I did to eliminate this headache from my Express.
When I found out that Honda wants $216 for a spring (attached to a new
engine case :-) I almost flipped out... Honda is close to being the
most expensive bike to own when it comes to replacement parts from a
dealer. Our local dealers gouge us with their pricing on parts and
shopping around will prove it. I would imagine a they go a good 200 to
300% over their cost to sell retail. The fact that the wind up spring
cannot be bought separately from the engine case is another reason to
avoid investing in a Honda. Yes I do own other Hondas, but I will never
buy another new one. Three other examples of price gouging: $35 for a
CX500 air filter and $75 for a temperture switch for a CN250 and my
favorite, $19.95 for a thermostat for the above CX500. All the above
parts were substituted with automotive parts for 25 to 30% of Honda's
asking price. If you own a Honda....look to substitute an
automotive/industrial part before shelling out your hard earned
cash.... You'd be surprised what is possible!! Good luck...

My dad gave it to my sister and she rode it without oil in the fuel. We
had tried to impress her with the importance of this but she would not
listen. It was almost justice to see her trying to start it later. She
said it went really fast right before it quit for good. I later used the
bike without the engine because it was all I could afford in
transportation.
Some time later I bought a rear mount roller wheel bicycle engine. I
think it was Japanese. I cant remember the name of it. It was 33cc.I put
it on a 27" racing bicycle. It was not a good balance. The centr of
gravity was high and,most of the weight was all on the right side and it
was wobbly on bumps and turns.

If you flushed the tank to get rid of old stale fuel,did you also clean
carb,fuel lines and filter of old stale fuel.Espicially if a fuel oil
mix;than start with FRESH fuel/fuel mix.Old fuel thicked and turns

what is the best kind of oil to use with my peugeot 103?

From: "Marc S."
Do you live in the San Francisco bay area, and have a moped that you want to
get rid of or are willing to sale?? IF so, I may be able to take it off your
hands. If we make an agreement then I could come by your house and pick it
up with the quickness. Give me a call on my cell phone at 510-205-5678, and
if I donít answer please leave a voicemail of what you have/where I can
reach you and I will return your call promptly.

Thanks

Marc

Subject: JET

Hey.... Maybe someone can look this up for me. I have a 79' Batavus Regency
HS and I heard that after the break in period (500mi) the jet is supposed to
be changed. Now I got this thing used with 200 miles on it, so it still has
the original jet in it. I've put over 1,000 mi on this ped so if the jet
should have been changed it should have been done a while ago. It only does
25 when it's supost to do 35. The only way to change the Air/Gas mix is to
change the jet and I think I need more air in the mix. What should I do?

hello dear administrator:

How do I change from getting individual messages to getting the digest
version ? I am finding the present form irritating. It's just not the same
without HANS.

thanks

The Problem with your Peugeot 103 Moped having to run the moped on 1/2 choke
is usually the carburetor. We remove all parts from the carburetor and soak
the body in an industrial acid bath solution which get into all the idle air
bleed holes which are inaccessible on the Peugeots Gurtner carburetor. The
body is then cleaned after its acid bath with carburetor cleaner and
compressed air. Then is rebuilt with all new parts. Then it is tested on a
moped. We have new and used carburetors in stock along with all individual
parts. We can also rebuild your carburetor too. It is really important to
check the gas tank for rust and varnish. Even after you drain and flush the
tank rust and corrosion re form. A fuel tank liner is always a good solution
to permanently seal the fuel tank. I have complete 3 part cleaning and lining
kits with instructions to perform this professionally.
