The 1973 A3 was the third Tomos-designed engine, but was the first widely produced. Before the A1 and A3, Tomos made Puch-designed engines and bikes from 1956 to 1981. That’s why some early A3 parts are the same as 60’s Puch, such as the L17 3-piece bearings. In 1986 (and 1985 Golden Bullet) the crank bearings changed from L17 17x40x10 to 6302 17x40x12. The engine cases got 2 mm wider on each side. Servicing was easier and bearings lasted longer. Also in 1986 the carburetor changed from Encarwi to Dellorto. Servicing became more difficult.

Tomos A3 Engine Parts

Here 9 Tomos USA parts manuals are combined into one. Four bike versions (pre-mix kick, pre-mix pedal, oil-inject kick, oil-inject pedal) are indicated by four quantity columns kpkp. Three illustration versions abc show the changes and improvements made over time, from 1975 to 1991, with a being the newest. Newer part versions have higher part numbers, and are listed first.

This is both a spec sheet with applications, and a list of parts for sale. Many things that say “none” in the price are listed for information purposes. The purpose is to possibly find substitutes by knowing the original part specifications. Sometimes parts can have different part numbers, but the difference is something minor that does not matter, or can be adapted. Some folks have parts, or see a part for sale, where the part number is known but not what models it’s for or could fit.

Shim washer 3: In the 1970’s, 212957, 212958 and 212959 crankshaft shims were mainly for adjusting the play (looseness) in the L17 (3-piece  angular contact) crank bearings, but also for centering the crank in the cases. In the 1980’s Tomos decided the thinner shims 212957 and 212958 were not needed, and discontinued them in the 1984 parts catalog. Two years later in 1985-86 the bearings changed to 6203 (1-piece full contact) type, that do not require side-to-side adjustment of play. The 212959 shim was only for centering the crank in the cases. 

Shim washer 10: In the 1970’s, 209073 and 209119 first speed clutch shims were thinner and had smaller increments. A stack of of maybe 3 or 5 was required. In the 1980’s they had the same part numbers, but were made thicker, so less were required, maybe 1 or 2.

Original sprockets have a flat center. Transmission oil is sealed mostly by metal-to-metal. The inner side of the washer #19 seals against the outer side of the sprocket #18. The inner side of sprocket #18 seals against the spacer #17, which seals against the bearing #17, as long as the nut #20 is tight and the sprocket center is not wavy on either side. There is also a seal in the left needle bearing 035502. But it does not hold the oil by itself. 

Aftermarket sprockets have a wavy center. That causes oil to leak. The remedy is to change the spacer 209077 to the o-ring type and add the o-ring 033007. That is what Tomos did after 2007, when their original sprockets were no longer made with flat centers. See more about this is at A55 Trans Oil Leak. Another remedy, maybe less effective but easier, is to clean off the oil and use liquid gasket sealer on both sides of the sprocket center. Many aftermarket sprockets also fit loosely, so they’re not centered. That makes the chain pulsate, where it gets slightly tigher and looser every revolution. When the sprocket is centered the chain runs smooth.

Domino “2000’s Tomos”

May 14, 2022

T. Domino/TBS “2000’s Tomos”

’02-07 Revival/Streetmate

The first US models of Tomos Revival 2002-07, Streetmate 2005-07 and Arrow 2005 had Domino controls, made in Italy. Domino controls can be identified by the yellow horn and engine stop buttons.

 

 

’08-13 Revival/Streetmate

Later those controls were superseded by Domino clones, made in China by TBS, on the 06-07 Arrow-R, 07 Streetmate, 07 Revival and all 2008-17 models. TBS controls can be identified by the red horn and engine stop buttons.

 

 

 

 

What’s the difference? The TBS control parts interchanged with Domino except for:

1) Brake light switch threads: Domino is American 1/4 – 32, TBS is metric M6-0.80.

2) Right mirror threads: Domino is M8-1.25 left hand, TBS is M8-1.25 right hand. 

3) Pivot bolt: Domino is M6, TBS is M5 with ∅6 shoulder.

4) Switches: Do not interchange.

Brake Light Switches

B. Info and Wiring

 

Please note the push button on a brake light switch is normally (most of the time) pushed in when installed. It is only momentarily released out when the brake is applied. That is opposite of most other push buttons. To avoid this source of confusion you have to add “when installed” to specify the way it functions. A normally closed switch is normally open when installed and visa versa.

 

A. Brake Light Switches


1. Screw-in type (European mopeds)

These brake light switches are located on the hand levers. 

Tip color: On vintage European moped brake light switches, the color of the tip tells the function. Black tip is normally open when installed. White or brass tip is normally closed when installed. 

Threads: Vintage moped controls, made in Germany by Magura and in Italy by Domino, OSL, and PV, and modern Domino controls, have “inch” threads on the brake light switch holes, ¼”- 32 tpi. A ¼” (6.3 mm) brake switch measures 6.1 to 6.2 mm at the thread tops.

In the mid 2000’s these were made correct, like a white tip CEV.
But later ones functioned like a black tip CEV, the opposite way.


Brake light switch white tip long replica

Generic brake light switch white tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-open-when-installed

HR controls (identified by the blue horn botton).
Also for others, when a small o-ring is added as a “riser”.


Domino 00’s

 

 

 

 

Domino 2218.20.04, white long tip
¼”-32 thread, normally-open-when-installed

232867 $9.00 new  (closed when button is released)
Original on Tomos ’02-07 disk brake models, with
Domino controls (identified by yellow horn button).
Also a replacement for many vintage mopeds.


Brake light switch Tomos small plastic

TBS 2010’s

 

 

 

 

Tomos TBS brake light switch, smaller, white long tip
M6-0.80 thread, normally-open-when-installed
243241  $9.00  new  (closed when button is released)
Required on 2008-17 Tomos Sprint, ST, LX, with
TBS controls (identified by red horn button). 
left only: Revival, Streetmate, Sm.-R, Arrow-R

’08-17 Tomos threads: Modern TBS controls used on 2008 and later Tomos, made in Taiwan presumably, which are otherwise Domino-compatible, have “metric” threads on the brake light switch holes, M6-0.80. An M6 (6.0 mm) brake switch measures 5.8 to 5.9 mm at the thread tops. An M6-0.80 brake switch will screw into a 1/4″-32 hole, but not visa versa. So 2008-later Tomos controls must have only that 243841 switch.

B. Info and Wiring


 

In series with light

“normally open when installed” is also known as “on in paused position”. When the brake lever is squeezed, the switch button is not pressed (paused), and the switch is closed (on). That makes the brake light go on, because the brake switch is wired in series with the light. With two switches, they are wired in parallel with each other, and in series with the light.

With two switches, they are wired in series with each other, and in parallel with the light. 

 

 

 

 


Handlebar Switches – Integrated

B.   H A N D L E B A R   I N T E G R A T E D   S W I T C H E S

Switches that are built into the hand controls:
4. late 1970’s metal, English words, by CEV, Aprilia
     for Domino “diamond” or “square”
5. early  80’s plastic, English words, by CEV “diamond”
     for Domino “diamond” controls
6. late 1980’s plastic, English words, by CEV, Daelim
     for Domino “80’s black” controls
7. 1990’s-00’s plastic, icon symbols, by HR (Tomos)
    for 1990’s HR (Tomos) controls
8. 2000’s-10’s plastic, icon symbols, by Domino
     for 2000’s Domino controls
9. 2010’s – on  plastic, icon symbols, by TBS
     for 2000’s – 10’s TBS controls

 

 

B. Integrated Handlebar Switches


4. 1970’s integrated controls: Aprilia or CEV Switches “molded into” Domino controls

Integrated controls means the electrical buttons and switches are part of the twist throttle and hand levers, rather than separate. The purpose of integrated controls is to locate the switches close to the operator’s thumbs, for increased safety and convenience, and to reduce cost and save space on the handlebar. Motorcycles had this first, because they have more buttons, generally. While the European switches below can be replaced separately from the controls, with most Taiwan and Japanese mopeds you had to buy the whole control assembly to get new switches and buttons. More on that will be in the Taiwan Mopeds parts department.

5. Early 80’s Domino-and-OSL-Integrated Switches: CEV “Diamond Plastic”

By the end of the 1970’s, the shape of pretty much everything from toasters to automobiles, that used to be rounded, was straight. Many things that were metal became plastic. On Garelli mopeds, the all curved Garelli “Oval Chrome” switch shape was modernized to CEV “Diamond Plastic”, with the same 36mm bolt spacing. The new design was much stronger and more resistant to breaking, because the sliding switch had a large platform that almost touches the base. The newer “knobs” are low and wide, not tall and thin.

6. 1980’s Domino-Integrated Switches: CEV and Daelim

There were not many US-model mopeds in the late 1980’s, other than Derbi, Garelli, Jawa, Tomos, Trac (Daelim), pretty much. Except for Jawa, they all used late 1980’s black Domino controls with fully integrated switches.

At right, it’s European all-icon cousin. Over there they signal by momentarily flashing their high beam, rather than by horn. So their buttons have different functions. By 1984-85 Europe already had all-icon switches, a few years before the USA allowed them.

HR and Domino 1990's controls

Top: HR controls, Bottom: “80’s – 90’s Domino”

7. 1990’s HR-Integrated Switches – All Icons

Icons appeared first on US mopeds in 1985 on Trac/Daelim, then in 1987 on Derbi Variant Sport and DS50. In the 1980’s the world somehow realized it made more economic sense for motorcycle switches to use symbols, with one version for all, rather than using words and having to make many language versions. By the 1990’s the US had switched to icons, at the time when Tomos and Jawa were the only European mopeds remaining. There were several “remakes”: Kinetic (India) is like Vespa/Piaggio, Manet (Slovakia) is like Puch, Hero (India) is like Puch, and others. Some of those copied “80’s – 90’s Domino” controls. These HR (Hidria Rotomatika) switches below do not interchange with Domino. The HR switches are slightly smaller than Domino, and their top peg is smaller. HR switches must go on HR controls, aka “1992-2007 Tomos” controls.

3. 70’s – 80’s Clamp-On Switches
that say what they do, in English

Mopeds (motorized bicycles) had less strict equipment laws than motorcycles did, and still do. They don’t need to have turn signals, or a permanently-on head light. The US DOT equipment laws dictate what the switches do, what they say and where they go. Engine stop always goes on right, reachable by right thumb. Lights and horn are reachable by left thumb. After 1972 US DOT compliant switches had English words. After the mid-80’s US DOT allowed international icons.

343.clamp $5  4-piece clamp with M4x12 screw
When the knob breaks, just leave the lights always on.
On a pre-1977 Puch, with violet and yellow horn wires,
if you remove this switch and unplug the horn the engine will still run.

If the knob breaks, just leave the lights always on.
On a late-77 to 86 Puch, with brown and blue/black horn wires,
if you remove this switch, and unplug the horn, the engine will not run.
The blue wire with the black stripe is an “external ignition ground” wire.

To bypass this, and make it run, ground the blue/black wire at the engine.

2 LO-OFF-LO HORN    $8  cap used, like new, tested
3 ENGINE RUN-OFF  $14  cap used, like new
Inside the cap, the horn button spring gets weak, or the rivet gets rusty.
On most bikes, that just makes the horn weaker, but on a ’77-later Puch,
that causes the horn to stay on all of the time (so does a loose clamp).

These clamp-on switches are almost the integrated type, because the switch hangs over part of the control. Magura made the switch base and Merit made the switch, both in 1970’s Germany. The switch bases broke easily, and so the supply ran out early on. They were on US-model mopeds: deluxe Puch models 1978-86, and deluxe Kreidler MP-19. 

 

Handlebars and Grips Menu

January 1, 2022

updated 2022-01

Select:     Handlebars       Grips  

 

 

Handlebar Specifications

Dimensions are width, height, rise, clamp length, control length, pullback.

Natural angle: Close your eyes, clench your hands in a fist, relax, and put both arms forward and down a little. That is the natural position of your hands. They form an angle, called θf, viewed from the front, and another angle, called θt, viewed from the top. Handlebars are all close to the average natural position of human hands. 

Positioning: Clamp-on handlebars can rotate in the clamps. During installation the rider chooses the best clamping position, for comfort and control. Most handlebars (except Clubman) are positioned with the rising part going straight up when viewed from the side. A rider with short arms might prefer a more rearward position, while a rider with long arms might want a more forward position. 

Flipping (inverting): Any clamp-on handlebar can be flipped over (inverted). But most will feel wrong and strain the wrists. Of the handlebars shown below, only the Clubman and Drag bars can be flipped over, and still feel right.

Dimensions: Six lengths can completely describe a handlebar, without the need for angles. Here the side-view angle θs, and the top-view angle θt, are calculated from the lengths R, H, P, L, W, and C.

tan(θt) = 2*P / (W-C)

sin(θf) = (R-H) / L  

Measuring: When measuring the dimensions, the end points are at the centers of the tubes, not the edges. The handlebar is placed on a flat table. With the rises vertical, the rise and height are measured from the center of the bar, straight down to the table, with 1/2 of the bar width subtracted (-0.4 inch). With the rises horizontal, the pullback is measured similarly. 

Height: Looking from the front, most handlebars, especially low ones, slant down slightly going outward, at an angle θf, because the height is less than the rise. On some handlebars, the height is greater than the rise, and θf is negative.

Pullback: Looking at most motorcycle bars from the top, the bars slant rearward, at an angle θt, because the pullback is greater than zero. When the pullback is zero, θt becomes zero. Cruiser bars are for comfort and have a large pullback, where the bar ends point more towards the back of the bike. Drag bars are for high powered acceleration, and have a small pullback for control and grip.

2D or 3D: When the pullback is zero, the handlebar is 2-dimensional and will lay completely flat. Otherwise, most 4-bend (non-Drag) bars are 3D and do not lay flat on a table. 2D handlebars are simpler to make, but don’t feel “right”, except maybe at one particular position. 3D handlebars are more complicated to make, but will feel “right” in a range of positions.  

Width: Wider handlebars allow better control. Off road bikes have wider bars. Narrow bars have less control, but are more aerodynamic for better fuel economy or higher top speed, and can squeeze through smaller spaces, like in between stopped cars.

Rise: High rise handlebars are taller, and put the hands higher. This can position the rider’s torso in a more upright position, for helping with back pain. Higher bars allow better control when standing up, like when jumping or hitting pot holes. Low rise handlebars put the rider leaning more forward. That reduces wind drag for higher top speed or better fuel efficiency.

Control length: Motorcycle handlebars need about 3 inches more control length than bicycle handlebars. They have thumb-operated levers or buttons, in addition to the finger-operated hand levers. Motorcycles have a twist throttle and a hydraulic brake on the right that takes up space. For motorcycles the minimum control length is roughly 8 inches. For mopeds it is about 6 inches. For bicycles it is about 5 inches. Any handlebar that has extra control length, can be cut shorter, up to the minimum control length, to reduce it’s width. 

Clamp length: The center straight area needs to be at least as long as the clamps. Motorcycles have wider handlebar clamps than mopeds. Here is a table of moped handlebar clamp spacings:

xxxxxxxxx xx inner  outer
Tomos A55 xx 1.7″ xx 3.1″  only this fork has enough inner space for bicycle bars with a 1″ x 1.7″ center bulge
Puch Maxi xx 1.55 xx 3.2
Hercules xxxx 1.2 xxx 2.4
Peugeot 103 x 1.2 xxx 2.3
Cimatti xxxx none xxx 2.4
Motobecane x 1.5 xxx 2.7

Applications: Not all mopeds can accept clamp-on “universal” handlebars. Some mopeds have bolt-on handlebars, where there are plates welded to the bar that bolt to the fork. Some mopeds have stem-mounted handlebars, where there is a long neck that goes inside the fork, held by a wedge bolt.

Thickness: Most modern 7/8 handlebars are  0.875 inch = 22.2 mm.

Vintage metric handlebars, are 0.863 to 0.866 inch = 21.9 to 22.0 mm.

The dual standard can sometimes cause problems.

22.0 controls on 22.2 bars: Wedge type controls, such as Domino, for 22.0 bars cannot fit on 22.2 bars. Wedge type controls do not clamp, but instead press a cone into the bottom of the handlebar. 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s “vintage” Domino controls have a fixed size hole, 22.0 mm, for 21.9 bars.

22.2 controls on 22.0 bars: Original vintage handlebars 22.0, with 1970’s Magura clamp type controls, require a strip of aluminum can under the clamp, to hold solid onto the handlebar. Otherwise the throttle slips around the bar. 1990’s and 2000’s “modern” Domino wedge type controls have a 22.3 mm hole, that works fine on either modern 22.2 or vintage 22.0 bars.

 

 


Handlebar Grips

January 1, 2022

updated 2022-01

 

Inner diameter: All small motorcycle left (L) grips have an inside diameter of 22 mm (7/8″), to fit the bare handlebar. Right (R) grips have an ID of 25 mm (1″) to fit the throttle twist tube.

Length: Vintage moped grips are short, 100 mm (4″). Modern grips are longer, 115 to 130 mm (4½ to 5¼”) or more. Short grips for vintage mopeds are not offered by most motorcycle shops or suppliers.  

Why length matters: The left side doesn’t matter, in most cases, because most lever housings (perches) can be repositioned along the handlebar to match the grip. The right side matters because the throttle twist tube is a fixed length. When the right grip is too long for the throttle twist tube, it hangs over the end and flexes. The flexible grip end causes less control when just the end is held onto. To eliminate that, the throttle housing can be repositioned along the handlebar to make the bare handlebar stick out past the end of the throttle twist tube, inside the grip. But then the grip rubbing on the bare handlebar can cause the throttle to stick and not spring back.

Grips listed below with logos are original on US-model and many worldwide-model mopeds. Most are for sale but some are only for identification. Grips without logos are aftermarket. Some aftermarket grips are replicas that look the same as originals.

OEM grips: Original equipment grips, some new and some used, are offered for “correct” restorations, when modern replacement grips are not desired. Many original grips are not for sale, but are shown for reference. OEM grips are usually made by the controls maker. Below are the major moped controls makers.

Domino controls are made in Italy. They are on most Italian mopeds, such as Arciero, Aspes, Baretta/Piccoli, Beta, Bianchi, Cimatti, Concord/Fantic, Demm, Gadabout, Garelli, Malaguti, Motobecane Sebring, Motomarina, Motron, Negrini, Pacer/Italtelai, Snark, late 80’s Tomos, and Vespa/Piaggio. 1970’s Domino controls are silver with chrome (stamped stainless steel) levers. Early 80’s were black, most with integrated diamond shape switches and chrome levers. 1970’s and early 80’s had black ribbed grips 100mm long. Late 70’s and early 80’s had waffle style grips. Early 80’s had basketball texture grips. Mid to late 80’s had all black controls with built-in switches and octagon style grips (also called square because they are shaped like a square with shaved off corners). See Domino controls

Magura controls are made in Germany. They were on most non-Italian European mopeds, such as Batavus, Columbia, Hercules/Sachs, JC Penney, Kreidler, Kromag, Kynast, Murray, Peugeot, Puch, Solo/Odyssey, Sparta/Foxi, 70’s to early 80’s Tomos, and Trac. Magura moped grips evolved like Domino. 70’s Magura controls were silver with silver levers (stamped aluminum) with black ribbed grips. Late 70’s to early 80’s controls were black with silver levers, and waffle style grips, early 80’s was block style, or basketball texture. See Magura controls .

Motobecane controls are made in France. They are on 1970’s to early 80’s Motobecane mopeds. The 70’s had silver with chrome levers, 80’s were black with chrome levers. They had built-in (integrated) switches. 70’s grips were grey ribbed 100mm long, 80’s were black ribbed 100mm. See Motobecane controls .

PV controls are made in Italy. They are on some 1970’s Italian mopeds, such as Benelli, Califfo, Cosmo (some), Intramotor Gloria, Moto Guzzi, Testi/Gitane and Velomec. They are silver with black plastic levers. The grips are black ribbed, very close to Domino, but they have a PV logo. The right PV grip is 105mm, but the left one is longer 112mm. See Other controls .

Taiwan controls are made in Taiwan. They are on Taiwan mopeds such as General, Lazer, Indian, Angel and others. They are cast aluminum housings and levers, with built-in switches and buttons, made the same as early 70’s “baby” Hondas, such as PC50. The 1970’s ones had black ribbed short grips 105 mm long. The ribs are small and have gaps. See Taiwan controls .

hr

H.R. controls are made in Slovenia by Hidria Rotomatika (HR). They are on 1992 to early 2008 Tomos, and Volocci electric bicycles. HR controls contain HR-made integral switches, sold separately in Switches. HR controls are similar to ’80’s Domino black, but most of the parts do not interchange with Domino. See Other controls .
