Tomos 150cc Nitro

Tomos 150cc Nitro

I bought this scooter used last summer. I was looking to jump up from the Tomos Sprints (50 cc) that I already owned. Bought my first in 1994 and second in 2005.

As for this scooter, it has been a great mode of transportation in the small town I live in. It gets 75 mpg (have calculated to confirm), has pretty good acceleration, and excellent road appeal.

I have taken it on 50-100 mile rides and found it fairly comfortable for my 230 pound frame. Can carry two riders, but with the luggage box on the back, we are squeezed together.

Minor drawbacks: full gauge is finicky, even after I got it replaced, rear fender support bracket welded on muffler snapped off and I welded on a substitute. It is hard to find parts for this model as it is a relatively new model to the U.S. and made in China.

Muffler Mount NEW
by: Tim Zipple

Don't know where to purchase replacement parts, except I know that the Tomos scooter was not assembled in Yugoslavia like the mopeds. It is actually a Chinese product. It's not well made like a Vespa; it's actually made by SYM (GY6 model?) in their Chinese factory with mostly Taiwanese components. My underside motor mount bolts are still in decent shape, but the muffler has detached from the right lateral frame more times than I can to remember. I have welded it many times. Have you tried contacting 'The Moped Junkyard' online?

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.
