    Good call sport7!!!! But does Anyone know when/if this investigation will be concluded?
  3. Today
  4. Toby Martyn

    He didn't fare well with my observing as he stopped four times and went backwards all in the space of about 7 seconds.
  5. First trial, need help!

    Many thanks!!! Today I will check the gear oil. I hope I will not have such a problem. Thank you very much for the information, it is very useful.

    Lol. That was what was supposed to happen when the rule was first instituted. It didn't, and its been a steady backpedaling from adhering to it in any strict manner. And here we are. If you really want to try again, you must be the eternal optimist (which to be honest would be a welcome relief around here). Personally I don't see bothering. I don't want no stop rules, I want modern riding in modern sections. I also don't want the onus of deciding what is and isn't a stop on the checkers, because I think it's too difficult a call to make with any sort of consistency, which is largely in my opinion what has led to the current state of 'soft observance' of the no stop rule. That, and the fact that modern riding means stopping, and I'm not even talking for hits. Here's a good one: https://youtu.be/nbiVKXKolLU?t=46s Did he stop? Didn't he stop? That's not even the point. The point is, WHO THE EFF CARES if he stopped? I sure don't. Run the same sections with a 90 second time limit. Forward, backwards, left, right... makes no difference to me if you make your gates and don't cross your line.

    So it just needs some banging of heads together. The FIM has to tell everyone at the beginning of the 2019 season that the no-stop rule is to be strictly enforced. Course setters must allow for that. Riders must obey it. Observers must mark accordingly. Send everyone a copy of that video to illustrate the point. There may be a bit of blood-letting at the first round if some riders can't quite believe it really is going to be enforced. But after that, everyone would understand and settle down.

    Right, I'll be carefully counting the smiles and laughs from now on. Let's see what you think of this lot: Commentators Gaff's Michael Buerk watching Phillipa Forrester cuddle up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1's UK eclipse coverage remarked: "They seem cold out there, they're rubbing each other and he's only come in his shorts." Ken Brown commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie Fanny Sunneson lining-up shots at the Scottish Open: "Some weeks Nick likes to use Fanny, other weeks he prefers to do it by himself." Mike Hallett discussing missed snooker shots on Sky Sports: "Stephen Hendry jumps on Steve Davis's misses every chance he gets." Jack Burnicle was talking about Colin Edwards' tyre choice on World Superbike racing: "Colin had a hard on in practice earlier, and I bet he wished he had a hard on now." Chris Tarrant discussing the first Millionaire winner Judith Keppel on This Morning: "She was practising fastest finger first by herself in bed last night." Ross King discussing relays with champion runner Phil Redmond: "Well Phil, tell us about your amazing third leg." Clair Frisby talking about a jumbo hot dog on Look North said: "There's nothing like a big hot sausage inside you on a cold night like this." James Allen interviewing Ralf Schumacher at a Grand Prix, asked: "What does it feel like being rammed up the backside by Barrichello?" Steve Ryder covering the US Masters: "Ballesteros felt much better today after a 69. THE new stand at Doncaster race course took Brough Scott's breath away..."My word," he said. "Look at that magnificent erection." A female news anchor who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked, "So Bob, where's that eight inches you promised me last night?" Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too, because they were laughing so hard! US PGA Commentator - "One of the reasons Arnie (Arnold Palmer) is playing so well is that, before each tee shot, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them .... Oh my god!!!!! What have I just said?!!!!" Harry Carpenter at the Oxford-Cambridge boat race 1977 - "Ah, isn't that nice. The wife of the Cambridge President is kissing the Cox of the Oxford crew." Ted Walsh- Horse Racing Commentator - "This is really a lovely horse. I once rode her mother." New Zealand Rugby Commentator - "Andrew Mehrtens loves it when Daryl Gibson comes inside of him." Pat Glenn- Weightlifting commentator - "And this is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning and it was amazing!"
  9. Hmm, pretty sure the full light kit for the Cota 349 only had a rear brake light switch, but the rest seems do-able easily enough - thanks

    Hi oni nou, thank you for your statements. Now I see and understand your point. Practice "outdated" theorie (what eventually opens some additional room for cheating).
  11. Stickers can be replaced but as been said earlier Red model 2006 250 yellow is a 125 2005.

    I see the revision to the rules being put into use everytime I watch a video of a TrialGP round and see the score card of zero marks lifted above an observers head after having just watched the riders machine cease to move in a forward direction relative to the course around 15 times per section ......this revision is not written in the regulations it has just been adopted universally by observers as they realise that obviously the riders would become disheartened if the letter of the rules was upheld regarding non stop and they would be receive 5 marks for 90% of the sections ridden............As has already been said before the sections are set as if they were for a stop allowed event and need to be set with the idea that riders are not allowed to stop.
  13. Bultaco parts

    Yout engine number is JM18301632 so the engine is a 183 from 1976/77, the frame is a 199 only as it doesn't have the A at the end of the number. The 199 and 199A have different frames. It definitely isn't a 1972 bike or engine, the engine and frame number on those begins with a 92 You can check model numbers here http://cemoto.tripod.com/bultaco.htm
  14. First trial, need help!

    Dobroe utro venickey, the bike is reasonably reliable. There is no manual for this. Although the recommended gearbox oil is 700ml, it is ok to use 600ml of ATF rated to Dexron III. The water pump seal and shaft wear, which allows coolant to enter the gearbox and mix with the oil. The water/coolant can create a problem with the glue used on the clutch fibres, allowing them to lift away from the steel. This makes the clutch action drag when pulled in. On your carburettor, the pilot adjusting screw should be set to around 3.5 turns out, from fully in as a starting point. The throttle needle in the second notch from the bottom. The suspension linkage, as most trials bikes, requires stripping, cleaning and greasing with a waterproof grease. Hope this helps. Bye, Peter B.

  16. C15 fork stantions

    Why do you want longer Stantions and Springs, are you thinking it will give you more travel...? ( cos it won't.)
  17. Toby Martyn

    It's physics, but not as we know it !
  18. Good stuff! Do you know if the lights have to be the original style, or are modern ones acceptable on an old bike?
  19. Bultaco parts

    The man that I got the bike from thought it might be 1972 model, maybe the engine is 1972
  20. Bultaco parts

    Great thanks very much so when I’m ordering parts for the engine is it a 199A
  21. Toby Martyn

    The relevance of posts about 1970s trials to Toby Martin and the recent 2018 Italian world round have confused me and now we are 'going forward to go backwards', has this forum entered a space-time continuum?
  22. Interesting that Italy allows small plates, but when Enduro GP round is there....it's the only round on the race schedule that requires standard full size motorcycle plate on competition bikes.

    • USED

    Hi bought Childs Quad in 2007 brand new for my disabled son (He would not go near it). It was used around a dozen times and then stored to 2012 were I bought a battery and it worked. So I stored it again (As no one would use it) till present day. The quad bike has bill of sale, 2 keys, tool kit and a manual under seat. The decal got scratched and a one inch crack in plastic by screw near footrest, was discovered while stored. Also mice been on back frame and some paint flaking off at rear under engine. Took wheels off to show axie and engine. My health has got worse and have not tried running it as it needs fuel, oil change and new battery. The back tyres solid the front are up but don't know to be honest about front tyres just been sitting for a long time so I'm not sure. The speed can be changed by throttle so child goes the speed your happy with. Would like to swap the Lt 80 with cash for a cheap Bultaco 159, 191, 199 or 74. Thanks.

    800.00 GBP

    Said the keyboard warrior. .....
  25. Bultaco parts

    The frame is a 1978 350 and the engine is a 350 from two models before, but pretty much the same as the engine that would have been in the frame originally

    Not necessarily, but I wouldn't get to excited without evidence of a good service.
  27. Bultaco parts
