The Bladez Moby S is one of the Bladez Moby scooter line. As the "S" (for street) designation would imply, this scooter's slick wheels and rigid, heavy frame, make it perfect for on-road cruising. This scooter is one of the most reliable and consistent scooters money could buy.


Technical SpecificationsEdit


Belt driven reduction transmissionEdit

Like the other Bladez Mobies, the S has a simple belt transmission which connects the drive belt to the rear wheel. The double pulley, a heavy steel double gear, can be lightened to improve performance.



ControlsEdit

S controls with Comp Bars. These are not the stock S bars.

The S's controls are the two hand levers on the handlebars. The lever on the left operates a mechanical disc brake while the lever on the right throttles the engine.

Front Disc Brake. The font disc brake is operated via a hand lever on the handlebars which operate a bowden cable which runs down the support pole and compresses the calipers.

The disc brake calipers are relatively flexible and this makes for an soft feeling in the brakes. Luckily, the brake pads have plenty of surface area to ensure that the stopping power is effective.

Rear Pedal Brake. The rear pedal brake is a simple lever which decelerates the scooter by pressing a rubber pad onto the surface of the wheel. Since this contact is made in the same area where the wheel makes contact with the road, driving conditions can drastically affect the performance of this brake. Though, even in wet conditions, this brake's power is more than adequate.



ProductionEdit

United States. the Moby line ceased production in early 2007 when Bladez sold its rights to the brand in order to focus more on its other markets.

ReliabilityEdit

You'll never have to replaceEdit

The engine. This scooter comes with a Tanaka 35 or Tanaka 40 which should last for the life of the scooter if it is properly looked after. Tanaka engines are notorious for outliving the scooter they are attached to.

You may eventually have to replaceEdit

The top shaft and its bearings. A common point of failure for the Bladez belt transmission is the top shaft. It is constructed of a thin bar that will eventually work its way out of the bearings which hold it it place. This problem can be avoided by checking the state of the shaft's bearings often, but it is a good idea to keep a few top shafts handy in case of failure.

You should immediately replaceEdit

Nothing! This scooter is one of the most reliable ever made. Even under negligent conditions, this scooter should live a long life.
