  1. Tubeless tire leaking air trial

    bath of water should show where its leaking
  2. Frame number problem?

    Never heard of a 370 myself
  3. Bolt behind seat

    my 76 159 has it (just looked!) but no bolt, think my earlier bikes had it too, something to do with manufacturing?
  4. Anyone know about this?

    is that the team with a small but clever leader? they call him footballs cunning gnome.
  5. Sister Sport

    I am guessing, but 1. they have found a way around the rule on weight distribution? and 2, to lower the gearing? I think there is a rule about what tyres they can use, basically a standard road tyre
  6. Ty 175 to pump or not to pump

    never seen a bike used in competition with the oil pump in use, they tend to be a bit generous with the oil and cause poor running. I run my 175 whitehawk on 60:1 synthetic 2t mix
  7. Is it Bent?

    could it be the mounting bracket bent? Unsure of the design on these, but it doesn't take much to alter the angle of the stand.
  8. Kick Starting a 2018 Beta Evo 200

    All I can say is I am 67 and have a 200 beta evo and find it a doddle to start, I am used to left foot kicking as I have had bultacos since 1968 I still have no problems with my T350 bulto either, it's about technique, Kickstarter at 10 past and firm prod, not a "kick"
  9. clutch spring tool

    I have always used 2 pairs of pliers, one opened to push down and a pointy nosed to slip pin in
  10. no, I was not suggesting this, I was just partially answering the original question. why are the spanish so strong, theey help their good young riders with money raised from exorbitant license fees
  11. it's not just trials, the Spanish are pretty dominant in Motogp too, a lot of it is the way their federation is set set up to progress and support young riders who show promise, I believe a trials license about 300 euros and presumably more for road race etc this money is ploughed back into the sport to help young talent.
  12. Classic trials from the late 60s and SSDT 1970

    Brilliant, takes me back to when I started riding😁
  13. New bike

    I was about to comment that they look like 2013 Beta's.I did see a post on facebook from I think "Manchester motorcycles" with some coy replies to comments like "wait and see"!
  14. evo 250 or 300

  15. Newbie South Wales

    Merthyr club is probably the nearest club to you, currently active, there are a few down west, Neath etc. not heard of the Cardiff club recently. Barry Mcnulty of AB motorcycles Merthyr can put you in touch with their club. I am in the pontypool area and now mainly only ride Gwent Classic trials,we have one on the 15th of October at my farm, between pontypool and Cwmbran
