Postby arkansaspaul » Tue Aug 28, 2018 11:26 am

So. Im new too mopeds. and thanks for letting me on the forum.
Anyway. I bought a Tao Tao 50. It needs a belt, and has a leaky gas tank. I know nothing about this. Didn't have a service manual, or parts list. Nothing.
It came with 2 belts, that the guy said where 2 inches too short. But again. looking at belts online. I have no idea what im doing. Could yall PLEASE help me out here?
Sorry if the info is vague. as I said, im new.
Thanks yall

did that. the recommended belt is extremely tight. and now the motor rarely catches and bogs down extremely easy. ever since we put this belt on.
