  1. As my road bike has gone I need transport for work, was looking at a little car/van so rear rack not possible. I'm thinking van, just need to see how big a load space I'd need for a bike. Cheers
  2. I had a 290 and was ready to start but got rid as I needed a road bike...
  3. Hi all, Starting up (coming from road riding) and thought id ask advice on a good beginners bike ? I'm around 14st 5'7" with a touch of Ducks Disease ( Short legs ) Done a few Trials Schools on Scorpa 175s and SY250s a few years ago and rode Motocross for just fun for a bit What would suit my ample weight and less than ample stature Cheers
  4. I appreciate this question has been answered before but with new products/vehicles around thought it may be worth asking again.... I'm a newbie starting up, just sold my road bike that was my 24/7 transport so.... Little car and trailer or van ? Is there any advantages or just personal choice? Cheers Jody
  5. Hi all, second time around here.....originally joined in 2012 when looking to get into trials but it never came off. Looks like it may do now though...Just sold my road bike Will be going ESTCC as I'm in Nuneaton
  6. Righto Gonna order some later tonight
  7. The hebo ones I've been looking at have a good selection of shims with them to fit various bars
  8. Has any body got experience of the Hebo (or any other ?) bar ends with the throttle bearing in them ??? Are they worth it or just go with standard bar ends ? Cheers
  9. Cheers copemech
  10. 'Do as you like then'....... That's usually the way it works after you've listened to a few opinions isn't it ? I'm going 70:1 If someone is unsure and asking for advice, it's just for an opinion I am very grateful for any advice given (as I started this topic) JoeNinety also thanked everyone, but If he or anyone else doesn't take it, its no skin off your nose ? Surely we both are erring on the side of caution, my bike has only just had a replate and piston too Joe
  11. Yeah I downloaded the Sherco mixture ratio list and it had a big yellow bar running through 60:1
  12. The swingarm moves up/down/left/right about 6mm at the bearings, more on the RH than LH Noticed a light knocking when hopping the rear to turn it round
  13. Cheers for all the info boys, spent the day cleaning and checking Previous owner copper greased everything........but put that much on it was everywhere......like a bit sticky dirt magnet ha ha ha Noticed some play in the swingarm bearings I didn't notice when I bought it........ 20 notes for bearings quite good I thought While that's out being done ill drop the engine and put the S3 head on Roll on spanner time next weekend
  14. They are a right obscure 'Vee Rubber' 'Trial Benissimo' ha ha ha Think I'll be buying some others soon........
  15. Cheers boys
