Winter products for your scooter/motorcycle and you!

With snow covering various parts of the UK at the moment winter is obviously here and for those of you who are out and about on two wheels (or three) during these cold months then the following selection of products are worth considering:

Motul Motocool Expert – An absolute must in preparing your bike for the winter! Without coolant in your water as temperatures drop below zero the water inside your engine freezes, as it freezes it expands which causes cylinders, crank cases and water pumps to crack leaving you with a very costly bill. Motocool Expert comes pre-mixed ready to pour straight into your radiator and will not freeze unless temperatures drop below -25°C. £5.10 per litre

Tyres – Having the right tyres on your ride is crucial if you want to stay upright. We stock a range of branded tyres suitable for everyone’s budget from Vee Rubber to IRC. Prices start at £27.50. Sizes available are listed below:


If you can’t see the size you require then please call us on 01226 630020 as tyres can be ordered in on a next day service.

Aerospace Batteries – When preparing your bike for the winter months a new battery is often overlooked. After a cold night your engine will be more difficult to start so making sure your battery is in A1 condition is very important if you want to be mobile. We stock a range of batteries shown below starting from £14.90, just check the code on the side of your existing battery and match it to one shown below:


Steev Balaclavas are ideal for keeping that cold winter wind off your face. Available in two different styles both made from 100% cotton.

Steev 2 Eyes Balaclava (Black) £4.34
Steev Ninja Balaclava (Black) £6.84

Steev Gloves – Keeping your hands warm whilst riding makes journeys not only more comfortable but much safer too. If you have numb hands then you lose the feel for your brake levers making riding dangerous in slippy conditions. From leather gloves to textile gloves, waterproof to breathable, Steev has it covered in a range of sizes starting from £20.00.

go-pod scooter and motorcycle covers - If you haven't already heard of go-pod covers then you need to consider one before thinking about any other bike cover on the market. The go-pod is an innovative product comprising of a unique self-contained bag system. The go-pod can be quickly deployed in all kinds of weather and covers your bike in seconds. Available in three different sizes all priced at £39.95 each:

go-pod Scooter+ (50-250cc scooters)
go-pod Sport (250-1400cc sports bikes)
go-pod Tourer (500 - 1100cc midi-touring bikes (inc. luggage bags))

To see the go-pod in action, watch at our demonstration video:

Featuring a tuned YX140 generation 4 engine, genuine Mikuni VM 26mm carburettor, PMT soft slick tyres, DNM MT-RTC-G rear shock absorber and much more. The CRF70 frame is spacious for teenager and adults while the tuned engine produces 19 HP at the rear wheel, resulting in some serious speed. Spec is as follows:

Front Suspension: SP 48mm forks with M2R triple clamps
Rear Suspension: DNM-RTC-G rear shock absorber with adjustable preload and rebound (nitrogen charged)

M2R claim they have dropped bikes off to the pit at some LCRRC events and gone straight out to race on them, so you know you’re getting some pretty serious kit.

Although there isn’t a specific place on our website at the moment for us to list and sell pit bikes, we have bikes in stock and orders can be placed over the phone on 01226 630020. Please allow 5 to 6 days for delivery.

Pit bike: M2R TT140MX TTR

M2R TT140MX TTR Linkage Pit Bike

The TTR Linkage frame is similar in size to the CRF70 style frames which make it comfier and more useable for larger or adult riders. The sophisticated 2011 linkage suspension system is designed to offer improved stability over rough ground and eliminate the brake jacking effect seen when braking over rough ground. All in all it offers better traction which enables you to go faster through jumps and bumps.

Using the Zongshen 140cc oil cooled engine that’s fast and reliable with 13 – 15 HP at the rear wheel it’s certainly not short on power. Fitted with a DNM rear shock that’s fully adjustable a long with USD front forks that feature 7.5” of travel. With a race ready spec the TT140MX is an incredibly capable machine for off road use with a great spec as shown below:

Clutch: Manual lever clutch with N-1-2-3-4 gears
Start Type: Kick start / kick in gear
Front Brake: Twin piston calliper with 220mm wavy brake disc

Fuel: Unleaded
Tyres: Innova

Pit bike: M2R KMX 140cc

Being the big kids we are, we like to play on everything powered by petrol. Out recent obsession has been pit bikes, whether it be in the Pedstop HQ car park or out in the woods, we surprised ourselves how fun little bikes can be for reasonable money. The first line up to arrive are from M2R (Made 2 Race). The quality and sturdiness of the bikes for the money really struck us by surprise, they’re well built and bloody quick as we found out when we went to test some this weekend. There will be plenty more pit bike fun to come but (over the next three blog posts) these are the three bikes that instantly appealed to us and are suitable for teenagers and adults.

M2R KMX 140cc – CRF 70 Frame – Big Wheeled Carbon Fibre Edition

The KMX 140 makes use of the CRF 70 frame that is larger than the traditional CRF 50 style frames often thought of when the term “pit bike” is used. It makes them much more rideable for larger teenagers or adults with more room when riding sat down. With a YX 140cc oil cooled race engine fitted as standard there’s ample power on tap with 13 HP at the rear wheel which is more than enough to upset most large adults. The overall spec of this bike is pretty good straight out of the box with USD triple clamp forks, piggy back rear shock, high rise bars and much more. Ideally suited for larger people or people who want a more stable bike over the rough stuff with the 17” front and 14” rear wheel taking every bump and jump in their stride. The full spec is as follows:

Engine: YX 140cc single cylinder 4 stroke engine (13 HP at rear wheel)
Top Speed: 60+ mph with off road gearing
Clutch: Manual lever clutch with N-1-2-3-4 gears
Start Type: Kick start / kick in gear
Brakes: Front and rear hydraulic brakes with braided hoses and ventilated discs
Front Suspension: USD hydraulic front forks with 7.5 inch travel
Rear Suspension: Single pivot design with piggy back shock featuring fully adjustable pre load and rebound settings. (Nitrogen charged)
Carburettor: Molkt 26mm
Frame: SDG twin beam chromoly cradle frame
Gross weight: 65kg
Fuel Capacity: 3.5 litres
Seat height: 86cm
Fuel: Unleaded
Tyres: Kenda MX

This is a serious not so little pit bike that’s built to soak up all the big hits found in MX riding. It comes complete with 30 day warranty that covers internal engine parts only when PDI’d by a professional motorcycle garage. It sounds great, looks great and goes even better!

Price: £799.00

Although there isn’t a specific place on our website at the moment for us to list and sell pit bikes, we have bikes in stock and orders can be placed over the phone on 01226 630020. Please allow 5 to 6 days for delivery.

EICMA 2011 video

EICMA 2011 - 69th International Motorcycle Exhibition

Check out our video from this year's EICMA motorcycle show which took place in Milan earlier this month. As usual there was loads to see at the show, we got the chance to have a quick chat with stunt rider Rok BagoroŇ° from Slovenia who spotted us in our Pedstop tees. Rok put on a good show on the new KTM 125 Duke street bike, watch him in action in our vid. 2011 seemed to be the year of the maxi scooter at EICMA with the world premiere of the new BMW C600 maxi scooters, the revamped Yamaha TMAX which looked pretty wicked and a new maxi scoot from Honda. If maxi scoots aren't your thing then there was still plenty to see at the 50cc end of the spectrum with the new Italjet Dragster which looked pretty cool, the usual eye candy from Polini, Wipe2's Stage6 Street Dragster prototype, we also met up with Olivier Murro, the designer behind this amazing scooter. So without further ado, sit back and watch our latest PED TV production:

PedMoto scooter performance parts: Air Filters


PedMoto Air Filters: Along with many other PedMoto scooter performance parts that are currently in development PedMoto air filters have been designed and vigorously tested by us here at Adrenalin Pedstop. Currently there are two types available – panel filters and pod filters.

Panel filters: With their twin foam design and the specific porosities of foam that we’ve chosen, PedMoto panel filters allow for great air flow whilst improving filtration properties. With these being a direct swap for the original air filter they’re great for a small performance gain or a service. At present there are two different fitments in stock however the full range will be available to purchase within the next few weeks. The price is great too at ONLY £4.40.

Panel filter for Gilera Runner, Piaggio Zip etc.
Product code: PMPPF001

Panel filter for Yamaha Aerox, Jog R etc.
Product code: PMPPF002

Pod filters: We’re proud to present two different types of foam pod filter. First up is our exclusive race version that was developed during the 2011 BSSO race season. Made up of one single layer of foam this filter is very porous and allows the maximum possible air flow and performance. This compromises filtration however it’s ideal for anyone wanting the best possible power comparable to using no filter at all. Price £14.85.

Race type pod filter (58mm union)
Product code: AD/PMP-58R

We also do a road version of this filter that has a second layer of foam with a low porosity. The two layers enhance filtration properties making this filter ideal for everyday use in all weather conditions. Each filter comes in a wide range of union sizes and are priced at £14.85 each.

Road type twin foam pod filter

All PedMoto air filters are made in England.

Adrenalin Pedstop @ Scooter Shootout 2011

On Sunday 2nd October the Scooter Shootout sprinting event took place, feeling the need for speed we took our racing Zips to Elvington near York for some quarter mile action.

The turnout was good with folk from all around the country attending. Thankfully the rain held off and riders were able to get plenty of runs up the drag strip. There was plenty for punters to see too including trade stalls, dyno testing, moto gymkhana and other attractions. Sit back and watch our video with Chris (Orange Polini 94cc Big Evolution Zip) and Sam (Aqua Green 77cc Zip) clocking up some cool 15sec/85mph+ quarter mile times:

At the time of writing it's looking like the event could take place again next year - a promising sign that scooter drag racing is gaining in popularity once again in the UK. Look out for us at a drag strip next season. And who knows, we might have something special planned for the next Scooter Shootout...

For more info and photos from Sunday's racing at Elvington, head on over to to read an article on the event.

NEW! Doppler WR7 Exhaust Systems

The latest shipment of moped parts to land at Pedstop HQ include the new Doppler WR7 exhaust systems. Aimed at people serious about moped tuning these are the highest spec Doppler exhausts available for geared mopeds. The WR7 features a newly designed expansion giving more power low down whilst keeping that power band up at high RPMs like the ER1 systems do, and they carry on to rev out a little bit further. The new silencer is completely re-designed in a titanium colour with anodised black end cap (which we think looks far better), it’s also 300mm longer than ER1 systems which also reduces the noise.

TNT Original Moped and Scooter Parts Just In

After the quietness of TNT over the past few months we're pleased to announce that the latest shipment of scooter parts have just arrived and among the usual product line there are some new parts too!

This stator plate for Minarelli AM6 engines from 2007 onwards features twelve coils with an external pick up. It’s a standard replacement for the original however we would recommend you double check the appearance of yours on the moped and compare it to the one in the picture. At £38.40 you’re saving around £60.00 or more on main dealer prices. Product code: AD/180310H

Derbi D50B0 standard 50cc cylinder kit

As you all know the Derbi D50B0 engine is used in most Aprilia and Derbi mopeds that have been produced since 2006. Now there's a cheaper alternative to that hideously expensive genuine barrel. We offer you the complete top end (minus the cylinder head) for just £73.90. Product code: AD/030312

We know that most dealers selling scooter spares and moped spares these days charge over the odds simply because parts aren’t available anywhere else. Thanks to TNT Original scooter spares a lot of original parts are now available much cheaper, here are a few examples:

This Peugeot CDI unit is suitable for Peugeot scooters that use electronic oil pumps and a 'Dell'Orto type' CDI unit. A straight swap for the original at just £38.40 compared to Peugeot's £80.00+ price tag means you can save some of your hard-earned cash. Product code: AD/180021A

CPI voltage regulators have a four-pin plug and are suitable for almost all CPI scooters - £19.10. Product code: AD/180351

As Chinese import four-stroke engines are becoming more and more popular, TNT have once again stepped up to the mark and produced a standard CDI unit suitable for all the 50cc and 125cc models. Available for just £15.00 this CDI is affordable too especially when your local garage has just ruined your original one trying to cut wires or drill holes to derestrict it. Product code: AD/180022A
