  1. Fuel screw setting sounds wrong to me. 2.5 to 4.5 turns out I have used.
  2. Woodruff keys are often the problem on sherco
  3. Does it cut out with the fuel valve in free flow as well?
  4. This is an Acu and Fim problem. If clubs run big events there is a steward who writes a report on the event. If the observing isn't done correctly or the sections are not suitable for the rules this should be reported back to the governing body who should take action. If this was athletics and a club ran the 400 metres but made it 350 metres because some runners didn't like running that far there would be trouble!
  5. So if your front wheel locks up on mud it would be classed as a five? No easy answer I'm afraid!
  6. I read about the Ssdt that one observer was giving 3 seconds for a stop. Others would give a five if the rider stopped with a foot down. Others allowed stops with feet up. Watching the video of Big Dars Burn some riders were stopping and lining up for the big bit without penalty. Totally unfair on those who do it non stop.
  7. Lenient observing is the problem. Riders don't like getting five for a "hesitation". Most observers don't like giving a five for the hesitation. But a hesitation is technically a stop if forward movement wasn't maintained. So an observer has an extremely difficult situation. I would probably be lenient if observing because of the confrontation and unpleasantness. I always count one second for a stop. If the bike isn't moving after that it's a 5.
  8. I have "Tip Top bead sealer" Paint it on to increase the rim size. Designed I assume for pitted alloy rims. My new Irc is stopping up better with this. "
  9. I assume your a wind up merchant?
  10. Also the plug needs changing regularly.
  11. I get a feeling that the mixture screw should be 4 turns out? That info may of come from Beta uk ssdt preparation list. Try less oil on your filter. Often they are over oiled.
  12. Unfortunately a lot of selfish fathers instil this selfish attitude in young riders. Often in youth national trials where times are tight you will see daddy holding the bike in the queue whilst little lad walks about in the section till the last minute so the rider can be onto his bike waiting at the front of the queue for him. Only the rider can get the bike round the course so this should be stamped out at an early age.
  13. Have you tried it without the air filter?
  14. Something I had never really noticed in the past was the amount of wear on discs. This has caused me numerous problems. Once pads were worn down anywhere near half thickness the brakes would be sticking on and binding. I assume because the pistons were too far out. Check your discs for a distinct lip on the edge.
  15. Can you imagine if this was car tyres that went down like this. There would be a lot of warranty claims!
