Goped Sport

images from http://goped.com

The Goped Sport is nearly identical to the first scooter that rolled out of Patmont Motor Werks. It's extremely simplistic design and economy engine keep things simple. Nothing fancy is an under-statement.

The Sport is the oldest scooter still produced by Patmont Motor Werks and has gone through three generations of engines: the Zenoah G2D-58, the Zenoah G23LH and the Chung Yang GPL290.


Technical SpecificationsEdit


PerformanceEdit

The Sport's use is generally limited to on-road conditions. It performs incredibly poorly in rocks and is unable to operate in sandy or wet conditions with a stock spindle. But if you upgrade to a black magic spindle, you can ride in wet conditions & you can ride on compact dirt. In smooth road conditions, the small size and light weight of this scooter cannot be beat.

Controls Edit

Brakes Edit

The primary braking system of the sport is the front caliper brake, the engines compression can also be utilized as a brake of sorts more suited to keeping the scooter at a safe speeds going down hills. The front brake is operated via a hand lever on the left side of the handlebars. The rear compression can also be used by pressing the kill switch to slow the scooter slightly. Although the stopping power of the wheel caliper brake is limited, it is ample for the speed that this scooter can attain.

Throttle Edit

A simple one or two finger trigger on right side of the handlebars.

Adjustments Edit

Must frequently adjust rear axle to keep proper pressure from tire onto spindle.

ReliabilityEdit

You'll never have to rEdit

The hard rubber tires of this scooter will eventually wear out. They are cheap and easy to replace. The spindle will over time also wear and may need to be replaced. Also, the ignition coil may eventually go bad over time. The weld where the goose neck connects to the handle bar pole WILL break eventually. You should upgrade to a heavy duty frame after a few years, BEFORE it breaks. The gas tank studs will eventually break, buy spare gas tank studs.

You should immediately replaceEdit

the Goped Sport has an extremely reliable engine but The stock spindle is awful & it will wear out super fast. the knurled steel spindle is not that good either. it is a wise investment to upgrade to a black magic spindle IMMEDIATELY, it wont wear out as fast as a stock or knurled spindle.
