Try some P B Blaster,similar to WD 40,but a 1000 % better.I M H O .Spray
on cyl bolts/nuts and in the spark plug opening overnight,and remove
, and locate your problem.My Honda 50 Elite scooter (2 cycle with oil
injection) ,siezed.I found a good cyl and piston ass'y for $50.00 on the
internet.I put reg 2 cyl oil in the oil tank and mix 1 oz of syn oil in
the gasoline`.No smoke and runs better than ever. I have two P U C H
,n.o.s. piston and cyl assy's,but that won't help on yours. Tom K
May your day be blessed.

I'm not sure what happened to my Tomos. The shop said the engine seized,
maybe no oil. But I always topped the oil and even used synthetic oil which
they recommended. Maybe the oil pump failed. I have checked on the web. A
new top end is still available from Tomos, about a $200 repair.
It has been weeks now for me to get a definitive report from them. Moped
Hospital. They say here in Key West after 4-5 years, the engine bolts
usually fuse from the heat and salt water and it becomes impossible to pull
In the past years I have used them for service and they have been good but
they are dragging their feet on this Tomos. I have two Targas so I am not
stuck without transportation.
But I would like to get this unit fixed. I like the Tomos Targas. I think
they may be a little bit safer then all the scooters with small wheels that
we see here in Key West.
I have seen your web site! More power to you for going cross country on a
