Been here a while, but figured I would post some pictures of the scoot. It is a Jonway TT150T-4 and is a clone of the Asian/European Yamaha Zuma or BWS. These are the pictures when I got it new last year.
Been a great little scoot and I love to drive it. The first upgrades where last year, performance CDI and coil. This year I wanted to replace the speedometer. The stock unit was off by 5-8mph and was a real pain to try to figure out. I also wanted a tach so I wound up with this little unit.
I was not expecting much, but when it arrived I found it to be built quite good. This unit runs off of the original mechanical cable, no magnets. It is adjustable to different wheel sizes. I downloaded a speed app to my phone and taped the phone to the seat. Took no time to set to the right speed. So much nicer than guessing. I did have to use the original speedometer mount and make a adapter plate so the speedometer cable would connect in the right spot. I love this little thing, tach, speed, trip, odo, time, oil change indicator light, turn signal light, high beam light, low fuel light, it's cool. Wiring was pretty simple too. I was able to source the wires and reconfigure the original plugs so that it plugged right into the original wiring harness. The fuel sender wire was the only one that was different.
Just ordered some new accessories for the scooter. These are hard to find in the states, but I found them on taobao.com. A actual BWS/Zuma designed windshield, BWS/Zuma rear passenger hand grips, and a trunk.
Just ordered in some more sliders and rollers to try and get that variator turned a bit better. Have not as good excel, but a stronger top end now. Performance variator using stock weights right now. The 11 gr sliders bogged too much.
Scooter is still doing great. Only problem I have had is that the cancel button on the turn signal switch popped off and the muffler now has a pretty good rattle at certain RPM's.
I have played with the variator some and now have a solid 50 mph. Just received some more rollers and sliders and hoping to get a bit more. I think the next step is larger carb and exhaust. I may even order in a head and try a port and polish too.
I never checked the valve clearances since I have had it. At 1300 miles I figured I had better. Valves did not even need adjustment! Now that is impressive.....
No adventures lately just in town and work trips. I am looking at doing some scamping next year though. Just need to get some light weight gear and talk my son into going. Going to make up some panniers for extra storage. Oh, I did add a trunk and a aftermarket electronic speedometer that has speed, RPM, ODO, Trip, and Time. The speed is calibratable so now I know my real speed. Old speedo was off by as much a 8 MPH.
Just another update. When I parked the scooter for the winter I had 1600 miles showing. The winter here has been record setting for snow and cold. Been under freezing temps here since just before Christmas. Had a warm day yesterday so I figured I would start the scooter and let it run a bit. Started right up! Yes it is still the original crappy ;-) Chinese battery.
Looking forward to some more scooter time this summer.
