first bike

i’m picking up a 1998 Tomos Targa LX for 500 dollars with only 2000 original miles on it in two days. anyone willing to give me a general idea of what simple tuning you can do, without a new build. also any general information would be much appreciated.

Re: first bike

Tomos are easy. Get a good all-around pipe like the tecno estoril, jet the carb, drill out the airbox inlet and you've got a 40mph bike with good acceleration.

i'd order a clutch cover gasket, pop the cover, hose it out in there with a can of brake cleaner, check the clutches, pop a new gasket in there, put the cover back on and fill with the proper amount of ATF.

tomos transmissions for some reason tend to be full of nasty and it will kill bearings and gears. If you ride them regular like, and change the fluid, they stay pretty clean but whenever i buy one that has sat you find a lot of sludge in the transmission.
