  1. Observation

    +To me consistency is the key you can't be easy on the clubmen and then hard on the good lads. I've observed at the SSDT and I feel most observers like myself try to be very lenient. Remember these riders are all trying hard under very difficult conditions and have paid well for the privilege. Never had any issues with the observing up there and have never felt the need to question an observer and I've ridden a few times including last week.
  2. Illegal Riding

    I'm all for crushing any pre 65 bikes certainly be more fun than riding one.
  3. Hi guys

    We're on {East Neuk Wobblers} next Sunday Pentland if you fancy a trip to Fife. You'll get plenty of advice and see what's what might even get a shottie if you're keen, we run trials most months and really aim things at new folk. Maybe see you about.
  4. Beta 80 Carburettor

    Just really an aside my wee boy has 2016 80. I'm believe it was one of Dougies sons and the carbs stock. It runs fine but I'm forever cleaning it out . Probably no one on the forum will agree with this but I feel it runs miles better on semi synthetic oil. Worth a try?
  5. TRS 125 riding impressions?

    Aye Fife's where it all happens. Had a shot on the high spec one as my pals the dealer but frankly as a 55 year old who rides a 12 year old Scorpa I'm not really qualified to comment. Looks great though.
  6. Ok Ok I can only speak about the club scene, If someone who rides say a Beta buys a 4rt they always go back; Maybe it's just a tradition up here.
  7. Fair doos must admit he's the only one that's ever got better on a Montesa.
  8. Glad he stays with Honda he would really pi$$ everyone off on a Gas Gas.
  9. Newbi from bellshill Honda to 125

    Hi Matt no seen one like that before nothing like the old tl 125 I had back in the day, Looks good condition.
  10. Fantic 307 jetting

    Hi there this brings back memories but not good ones, I had a 307 new and never got it to run right fiddled with carb settings forever packed in first day of the six days as it just ran terrible. Never got it sorted . If I had one now I would get an OKO and try it I've one on and old Fantic Section runs fine. Sorry I'm little help sure there's others on here who've got them sorted,
  11. newbie from Stirling

    Hi Rab and welcome no much help with places in Stirling one of our members has ground near Milnathort which the public can use for a small donation if that's any good, Most riders do go to the organised trials even when just starting out because that's where you find out what's going on and they're pretty casual affairs. Hope someone posts with some more local info. Cheers.

    HI bearings last about 10 mins if the bikes been powerwashed they.re cheap so mot really a problem. flick out the rubber seals on the hew ones and grease before you fit them helps a lot.. If the seals are ok on the forks I wouldn't rush to change the oil they're tricky for the home mechanic better get the shop to do it unless you're really confident as mistakes can be expensive. Oil will likely be 5 weight and you'll get a measurement from the top of the fork tube rather than a quantity because they're hard to drain the oil out as I said they're tricky. Rear damper unless it's leaking leave alone should be fine on a 15 bike unless it's been hammered, Any work on this you'll need a shock specialist no really a DIY job. Anyway stop fiddling with this thing and get out and ride it.f

    Mines 2 on the drive side and one on the brake side!
  14. Where are all the entries????

    What what what you grudge the kids a cheap ride round? Up here we've more over 40s than you can shake a stick at but kids are a problem .Normally what happens is Dad or Mum brings junior along the kid packs in and the parent keeps on riding. I don't know if you've kids that ride but I have and it's heavy work with 2or 3 loads of gear to wash extra bikes to service, repair ,wash they always grow out of things and break things. Unless a parent is totally committed it's just not happening. Anyway a cheap entry is neither here or there but it' s a nice gesture. Agree about you're second point.
