I am Heiko Fröse, owner of HT Motors (HTPARTS.EU), born 1980 in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. My passion for mopeds and motorbikes was there when I was still in diapers but took serious shape from the age of 14. My first moped was a Puch Maxi, which I liked to drive, but I soon tweaked more than driving it. It wasn't so much because it was always broken, but because I just wanted to get more performance out of it.

The mopeds, scooters and manual mopeds that followed never drove the specified factory speed 😊. From the age of 16 I worked in my parents' garage or in a client's backyard. My customer base grew through word of mouth from friends and acquaintances in Dordrecht and the surrounding area, advertising on the Internet led to a customer base throughout the Netherlands and Belgium.

At the age of 21 I took part in the 150m scooter sprint for the first time and immediately got a 5th place. I wanted to have my engine and cylinder tuned and I went to Freddy Koopmans with my story of being the fastest in the Netherlands. He then immediately said that this was not feasible.

I left my stuff and over the next few days I kept thinking that according to Freddy it wasn't feasible. But I wanted it so much that I picked up my stuff and started “tuning” myself. And so it started on the coffee table in my 40m2 apartment with the well-known Dremel.

Of course, not everything happened by itself, but in the following years I developed more and more knowledge and skills, which I and later my driver and good friend Henk van den Heuvel (Henk from the Hill DSSC) used to achieve many titles and records with the scooter sprint won.

In the years that followed, the company grew with customers all over the world. In 2018, HT Engineering started shifting from tuning, overhaul and maintenance to the development and production of maxiscooter, moped and classic car parts. The focus is mainly on the production of Plug and play quality products for the road, all made in the Netherlands.

Now, 4 years later, we find that most of our orders come from abroad and no longer from the Netherlands where we are based. Mainly customers from Europe, mainly from Germany, Italy, UK, Austria and Spain, but also from New Zealand, United States, Mexico, Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, St. Maarten etc.

We manufacture CNC turned and milled parts in series for customers and colleagues at home and abroad, although we want to focus more and more on business-to-business sales from 2023.

In addition to some other international providers, this also has Scooter Center our products in theirs Web shop recorded.

I would like to thank you for this Scooter Center and especially to Michael, Daniel, Alex, Uwe and Frank!

Sincerely yours,
Heiko

The racing series was a guest from July 02-03.07.2022, XNUMX European Scooter Trophy and European Pit Bike Trophy at the Harz Ring. The third run was about significantly influencing the previous championship standings with a view to the second half of the 2022 season. The starting fields were also well filled at the Harz Ring and the conditions for an exciting weekend were perfect.

Race Class 1 - Rookies by Scooter-Attack

With 30 starters the most crowded class from the start. Hüskes was able to win the start ahead of Winterscheidt. Hermann had to give up pole from qualifying and found himself in 4th place. Buschsieweke worked his way up to 3rd place in round 2. Hermann kept getting passed and couldn't keep up with the speed from qualifying. The trio of Hüskes, Winterscheidt and Buschsieweke pulled away from the rest of the field. Hüskes could not tear himself away from the field of pursuers. Buschsieweke and Winterscheidt fought fair and hard. Buschsieweke was almost over. Winterscheidt cleverly closed it. Due to the early lapping, Buschsieweke had to slightly give up his attacking position. Still, he stuck with it. For this, Winterscheidt increasingly approached Hüskes. In the end, what Winterscheidt wanted was too much. He fell. Buschsieweke should also fall victim to being lapped again. When trying to lap in the infield, he was unfortunately forced to fall because the person to be overtaken drove into his lane. In the end, Hüskes won easily because he kept his cool. Buschsieweke came in second. In third place came Ebeling, who benefited from the falls of the other riders.

Mess at the start of the second race. Various participants did not arrive in time for the start time and had to clear the field from behind. Hüskes also won the start by far in the second race. Winterscheidt on two. Buschsieweke on three. Quite early on, Buschsieweke was caught by Ebeling, who took third place. Ebeling put more and more pressure on Winterscheidt and reduced the gap between the two opponents. From lap 8, Winterscheidt was able to maximize the lead again. At the top nothing seemed to be burning for Hüskes. He just had to lap safely. And he did, securing his second win in the second race. He was followed by Ebeling in front of Winterscheid. 

Daily ranking 3st run Harz-Ring 2022 Class 1 Rookies by Scooter-Attack:

  1. #47 Sascha Hüskes 50 pts.
  2. #265 Patrick Ebeling 32 pts.

Race Class 2 - SuperSport by Deutscher Bauservice

The start winner in the first race was Apostel. Triebs found himself in third behind Diabelez. Triebs didn't want to settle for that, however, and went into attack mode. With success he was able to work his way up to second place behind Laugesen. Laugesen was significantly faster from lap 4 and was able to overtake Triebs. This opened the attack on Apostle. Shortly before exiting the pits, Laugesen was able to pass inside with a great driving maneuver and excess speed. Laugesen quickly built up distance to Apostel and Triebs. Triebs noticed that there was still something going on against Apostel and gradually fought his way into an attacking position. In the S, Triebs showed courage and nibbled apostles. So the first race was set. Laugesen wins ahead of Triebs and Apostel

At the start of the second race Triebs took the lead in the field. Laugesen was close behind him at the rim. Laugesen had a bit more speed and it looked like it was just a game for time until he overtook Triebs. In the meantime, Apostel had to retire due to a technical defect. Third place was hotly contested: Merla, Diabelez and Larsen fought doggedly and scored important points. First Depta had the edge, but was then conceded by Larsen. Diabelez was also able to slow down Depta after the start and finish. Triebs held off Laugesen lap after lap. It looked best for him at start-finish. In the end, the magic meter was missing. Absolute top performance of both pilots. On the penultimate lap, Laugesen was able to take the decisive trick and brake Triebs fairly on the inside of the curve. Triebs then under-braked a bit and Laugesen had the win in their pockets. Still, a great performance from both drivers. Third place went to Diabelez, who in the meantime also grabbed Larsen.

Daily ranking 3st run Harz-Ring 2022 class 2 SuperSport:

  1. #74 Jeppe Laugesen 50 pts.
  2. #313 Marcel Triebs 40 pts.
  3. #167 Niklas Diabelz 29 pts.

Race class 3 - Expert by Scooter-Attack

Dream start from the master of expert Andersen. He went straight to the front and dominated the field. Rapid didn't have a chance to stay tuned. He had to deal directly with Kovac, who wanted more than 3rd place. Schnell drove a good race and fought hard against an increasingly faster Kovac. Both drivers had to take a lot of risks. In the penultimate lap we went on to the wild fight for position. Kovac clawed fast. He immediately counterattacked and did it very well and was able to secure second place in the last lap.

In the second race, Andersen also started better than the entire field. Kovac was able to grab second place. He tried to keep up with Andersen. Behind was Schnell in front of Schmitt. Unfortunately, Kovac had to retire early with a technical problem, so there was no longer any serious danger for Andersen at the top. Although Schnell gave everything he had, but he could no longer become dangerous to him. Third place in the second race goes to Schmitt.

Race Class 5 Pitbike Stock by Scooter-Attack

In the pit bikes, Schweizer pulled away from the start. The driver, who is also leading in the championship, was able to distinguish himself repeatedly with very good speed and a great performance. Wittwer gave everything in second place. But Schweitzer's machine went off like lightning. Nevertheless, Wittwer fought to keep the gap from increasing. Rademacher and Wolf fought for third place. He had engine problems for a short time and therefore had to restart his vehicle and lost a lot of time in order to still be able to take part in the fight for third place. Rademacher was all the happier about third place.

In the second PitBike race, Schweizer took the lead again after the start. Wittwer and Fritzsch behind in pursuit of points. Schweizer drove his own race, completely safe. Wittwer only had to keep up the pace to survive against Fritzsch. Wolf and Rademacher took fourth place. The chasing field around Jostkleigrewe, Nabbefeld, Zanker and Hartmann offered exciting two or four battles. However, Jostkleigrewe had to retire due to a technical defect after successfully asserting himself in the field. In the end, Schweizer remained in the usual position ahead of Wittwer and Fritzsch.

Race class 6 - GP-Open

The absolute top driver in terms of driving style and lap times comes from Spain this weekend. Bartheld started as a guest starter in the GP Open and outclassed the entire field. The driving style is an absolute feast for the eyes. And so it was not surprising that Bartheld led the K6. Grass was second, followed by Krzyszto. Bartheld drove the victory confidently to the finish in front of grass. Krzystzto came in third.

The second race began just as the first ended. At least for Bartheld at the top. This shot again over the circuit of the Harz and gave the pursuers Gras and Schweizer little chance. Gras had to fight a lot harder in the second race against an equally strong Swiss, who was aiming for second place. Schweizer tried several times after the start and finish to pass with excess speed. Grass always closed cleverly. In the end it stayed in order. Bartheld won ahead of Gras and Schweizer

Gaidecka at the front set himself apart from the rest of the field. Weiland on two still had the best chances. But behind them was a great three-way battle between Kruger on the PitBike and Kalms and Wojciechowski. Little Kruger fought great on the pit bike and got the upper hand on the scooters. Wojciechowski was able to pass Kalm halfway through the race. In the end, Gaidecka won safely ahead of Weiland and Kruger.

How do I adjust a carburetor? Tip set tip

Adjust the carburetor with the precision part carburetor nozzle

For the Setting the ignition there are now excellent tools like that buzzwangle or Whalethat allow a precise ignition position and make work extremely easy. Adjusting the carburetor, on the other hand, is the most difficult part of tuning a scooter for many.

If setting the air mixture and the idle gas is still child's play, it becomes more time-consuming to determine the correct nozzle sizes for the individual engine setup. Here, the carburetor needles, nozzle assembly, main and auxiliary nozzles interact and, perfectly coordinated, result in a clean setup.

If you choose a nozzle that is too small, the engine runs too lean, gets too hot and major damage is inevitable.
Too large a nozzle and too rich adjustment can lead to engine damage. Quite apart from the fact that the capacity of the engine is not exhausted and working time and money for elaborate tuning literally fizzle out.

How do you adjust a carburetor?

As an example for a Lambretta, we have prepared the PDF, which is described in detail and illustrated, with suggestions for the setup for you.
Free download here: Lambretta carb jetting by Scooter Center

From the tutorial - when does which nozzle come into play?

Adjust the carburetor

Precision product carburetor nozzle

DellOrto nozzles, for example, are stamped with a number that refers to the size of the hole. A 100 nozzle has a diameter of 1 mm, a 115 nozzle is 1,15 mm (!!) only a tiny amount 0,15 mm larger!

If you want to be on the safe side here and rely on high-precision tuning, we recommend using the nozzles bgm PRO or KMT to fall back on. These nozzle sets are characterized by

  • high-precision drilling
  • minimal tolerances
  • meticulously precise graduation of the nozzle sizes
  • easy to read numbers
  • high quality of workmanship and material
  • Quality control
  • including storage box

 

Precision nozzles from bgm PRO or KMT for clean engine tuning

You have invested a lot of love, time and money in your engine tuning. But the most expensive and complex tuning, with the best components, is of little value if the engine does not run smoothly or if a poorly adjusted carburetor does not allow optimal combustion. In order to be able to tune the engine correctly, high-precision carburetor nozzles are a very important prerequisite and make adjustment a lot easier!

Quality assurance bgm PRO carburetor nozzles tested under the microscope

We had the new bgm PRO carburetor nozzles checked at an institute. Here is a glimpse into a 118 nozzle, with a dimension of 1,1779 mm, the bore is in the green area with a deviation of only a thousandth of a millimeter and is therefore OK!

New carburetor connection rubbers from bgm PRO

The 12mm wide hose clamps from ABA SAFE have proven themselves in countless long and short distance races and test kilometers.

The ABA Safe ™ clamp uses the elasticity of the suction rubber and protects this relatively soft rubber hose from damage. The tensioning force is increased on the profile beads, there are no sharp edges, which means that the 12mm wide clamps sit tightly without stressing the carburetor connection rubber.

PMT Tires scooter tires for scooter racing

Made in Italy: PMT Tires

The Italian tire manufacturer PMT (Pauselli Model Tires) has been around since 1990. Originally, the company produced tires for RC cars and the mini-bike racing series popular in Italy. Since then they have also made tires for motorcycles and above all Racing tires for scooters develop, they quickly secured a top spot among the racing drivers' favorite tires. the PMT tires are available in perfect mixtures for the various soil, weather and temperature conditions.

PMT Tires

PMT Tires Rain & Intermediate

Slick, mix: hard

The slick with a hard compound is ideally suited for routes with high asphalt temperatures and heavy use from many alternating curves and braking maneuvers. The hard mixture is the most abrasion-resistant and can therefore be used very well in endurance / long-distance races. The warm-up phase for the optimum operating temperature (~ 80 ° C) is significantly longer with this mixture than with the "medium" or "soft" mixture.
The recommended air pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and the rear between 1.4-1.9 bar.

Slick, mix: medium

The medium bridges the gap between the hard and persistent as well as the extremely well adhering but also quickly wearing soft mixture. The medium thus covers a very large area of ​​application. Its optimal operating temperature is ~ 75 ° C and, like the hard mixture, requires a longer break-in period than the soft mixture to get up to temperature.
The recommended air pressure for the front is 1.2-1.3 bar and the rear between 1.4-1.9 bar.

Slick, mix: soft

The soft PMT mixture offers full grip even at lower temperatures. Accordingly, it wears out quickly at higher temperatures and then no longer offers its full grip level. In return, it very quickly reaches its optimal operating temperature of 70 ° C.

The key spiral - a classic rediscovered

I had one - everyone used to have one and it was 'cool', the key spiral! And with this video my heart opens up:

New spiral key ring from MOTO NOSTRA by Scooter Center

We scooter drivers, mods & scooter boys quickly discovered this practical spiral for us: because the different key types for ignition lock, steering lock and / or luggage compartment lock can be flexibly but securely connected to each other.

With this super lanyard, all keys form a unit, but do not interfere with each other during operation: the ignition key and steering lock / overhead locker key remain in their lock and are connected by the key spiral. Each of the two keys is quickly at hand and the paint is protected by the flexible PVC material.

We have the key coils in 15cm-60cm (the 15cm version can be stretched to 60cm) and 30cm-100cm (the 30cm version can be stretched to 100cm) length. The colored versions are translucent, ie they are colored but still transparent.

Provided with a key ring on both sides.

  1. TIP: Also ideal for e.g. house and car keys on the pants to fix!
  2. TIP: The tape can be shaped as desired with a hair dryer, e.g. if the angled end should be straight.

Carburetor spare parts via carburetor exploded view

Spare parts for DellOrto and Polini carburettors

Carburetor spare parts: In our shop we also offer you small parts to repair the carburetor of your scooter. We have great explodedwith which you can each part easily identify and order quickly and easily .

Simply select your Dell'Orto or Polini carburetor here to get to the spare parts very easily:

 

Carburetor jets

Carburetor nozzles - size counts

We attach great importance to accuracy, especially with the smallest components such as carburetor nozzles!

Carburetor nozzles, these tiny brass parts are one of the most important variables that determine the behavior and performance of our engine. The choice of the right bore, i.e. nozzle size, decides here on frustration and pleasure while driving.

With a nozzle for DellOrto carburettors, for example, the number embossed on the nozzle indicates the Bore diameter on and at Mikuni the Flow rate and not the bore size (as with DellOrto, PWK etc.) specified.

A nozzle with the code “50” has a bore of 0,50mm and rises in the range of a few hundredths of a millimeter. A size 52 nozzle measures 0,52mm in the bore. For comparison: a human hair with 0,08mm would make a difference between a 50 and a 58 nozzle.

For many carburetor manufacturers we offer a wide range of Nozzle sets and a large selection of individual nozzles.

Tip: nozzle set for clean and effective coordination

The Nozzle sets, which we sell under our BGM brand, are checked at regular intervals. Not only are the fit and the external dimensions carefully checked, but the greatest focus here is on the accuracy of the drilling. The nozzles are measured under a microscope and compared with their actual size. The diameter is determined exactly to the µm. One µm corresponds to a thousandth of a millimeter (0,001mm)

Carburetor nozzles under the microscope

Here is an insight into a 118 nozzle. With a dimension of 1,1779mm, the hole is in the green area with a deviation of only a thousandth of a millimeter and is therefore in order.

m.blaze disc from motogadget - a handlebar end indicator

The m.blaze disc is the latest generation turn signal light. The characteristic feature of the LED turn signal is the transparent light disc on a compact aluminum base, which fits harmoniously with the handle at the end of the handlebar.

Arlen Ness handles & Motogadget m-Blaze Disc on Harley Davidson – Breakout 2014

TranzLight turn signals

Blinker system that uses the new TranzLight technology (TLT, patent pending). This progressive development approach is not limited to the simple miniaturization of turn signal housings but creates the light directly via a crystal-like plastic body. Only precise optical CAD calculations and the most modern manufacturing processes enable this new design and its function.

The light flow required for the TranzLight principle is generated by the intensiLED® process developed by motogadget and consists of three important components:

  • Selected high-performance LEDs with maximum efficiency and a total output of 7W with a service life of more than 50.000 hours
  • An IC controlled constant current regulation clocked at 330kHz
  • A special collimator optic that couples the light from the LED precisely into the plastic body

The discreet aluminum housing is only used for stable attachment of the glass body and the integration of control electronics and high-end LEDs.

Of course, the housing is CNC-manufactured, schwarz eloxiert and finely inscribed by laser.

The handlebar end indicator is very flat and appears neutral and inconspicuous due to the transparent disc. Thus, it fits many styles and a wide variety of scooters and even on motorcycles, quads ...

The flasher can be operated like any common LED flasher with load resistors or with all of our load-independent flasher relays.

Benefits

  • Absolutely unique, independent design and functional principle
  • Hardly noticeable on the handlebars when switched off
  • Extremely bright light to the front, clearly visible light to the rear
  • State-of-the-art high-performance LED technology, IntensiLED
  • Electronic voltage conditioning and safe protection electronics

Installation instructions for handlebar end indicators

The m-Blaze disc is suitable for mounting on handlebars with an inner diameter between 14 and 21mm. Use the following sketch to select the mounting elements required for your handlebars: Motogadget-led-blinker-disc-installation-instructions_manual_

The m-Blaze disc must be mounted horizontally, the angle of the handlebar inclination must be in a range from 0 ° to a maximum of 9 °. Before installing the indicator, clean the inside of the handlebars. Only a clean and grease-free surface enables the turn signal to be securely attached. For the cable exit, drill a 3mm diameter hole in the underside of the center of the handlebar. Alternatively, a hole can be drilled to the left and right of the switch fittings. The hole must be very carefully deburred inside and out. No tensile forces may act on the connection cables. This can tear the cable out of the turn signal housing or chafe the handlebar exit point. Make sure that the cable is long enough and pay attention to the steering angle. It is recommended to protect the cable at the exit point with shrink tubing.

DAMAGE TO THE CABLE INSULATION CAN CAUSE A SHORT CIRCUIT AND A CABLE FIRE, THAT IS RISK TO LIFE.

Use the blinker marked “L” for the left side of the handlebar and the blinker marked “R” for the right side of the handlebar. Guide the turn signal connection cable into the tube opening and from the inside through the 3mm hole to the outside. Use a stiff piece of wire for this. Tighten the M8 nut on the indicator lightly so that the rubber piece spreads open a little. The indicator is pushed into the tube, the rubber piece must be in contact with the tube wall. By turning the indicator clockwise by hand (do not use any tools!) The piece of rubber in the handlebars opens. Turn the turn signal until a considerable amount of force is required to release the turn signal; the motogadget logo must still be visible from above. If the rubber piece on the inside of the handlebar does not expand, the indicator is pulled out, the connection cable is brought back to its original position by turning the indicator housing counterclockwise, the rubber piece is more pretensioned by tightening the M8 screw and the assembly process is repeated.

THE CONNECTION CABLE MAY BE DAMAGED BY TURNING TOO FREQUENTLY IN ONE DIRECTION. DO NOT TURN MORE THAN 4 TURNS IN ONE DIRECTION IN ANY ASSEMBLY ATTEMPT. BREAK IF STOP THE TRIAL AND TENSION THE RUBBER TIGHTER. TURN THE CABLE BACK TO ITS STARTING POSITION IF YOU TRY TO REASSEMBLY.

Connect the red connection cable of the left turn signal with the positive lead of the left turn signal circuit and the red cable of the right turn signal with the positive lead of the right turn signal circuit. Connect the two black connection cables to vehicle ground. The supplied crimp connectors are used for this. Test the turn signals for their function. If the flashing frequency has changed, you need an electronic, load-independent flashing relay.

THE TURN SIGNALS ARE PROPERLY MOUNTED AND COMPLY WITH THE LEGAL REGULATIONS IF THE TURN SIGNALS WITH THE MARKING “L” FOR THE LEFT SIDE AND THE TURN SIGNAL WITH THE MARKING “R” FOR THE RIGHT SIDE HAS BEEN BUILT IN AND ON BOTH SIDES THE MOTOGADGET LOGO IS VISIBLE FROM ABOVE.
