  1. 2019 RR Vs One

    TRS one will certainly be good enough. I can't hop on the rear wheel but I love my RR

    Under ACU rules you cannot protest another riders score. Anyone know if FIM is the same ?
  3. Silly season approaches

    I think you may need to stop looking at the stickers. The shock Busto had on his bike at Addingham looked like a TTX, too big to be standard. I can't imagine they won t change other parts to suit the rider. Jack Price is currently British Champ and has just beaten Kadlec in the world championship so is he not their best rider excluding Busto / fajardo ?

    Not disputing Dabsters comments as I haven't seen the severity of the incident he is referring to. But have we not been looking at world trial videos for years a saying why wasn't that a five? Professional observers may sound like a good idea but as the rule stands in terms of benefit of doubt, it's not a stop if you hop or the next rock is big / awkward etc what's the point of a professional observer? You have to have rules which can be consistently and objectively applied. For all the Facebook live, various websites, qualifying, night qualifying etc we don't have the basic of any sport in place, a proper set of rules.
  5. Transmission oil change

    Taff is that quote not related to a car where the clutch is separate anyway? Just keep using what works for you. No need for anyone to change what they use unless they have a problem to solve
  6. Transmission oil change

    If you ever had the main bearings out of a gas gas and seen the size of the pinhole in the bearing case I wouldn't think a thicker oil helps. From memory I think the pin hole is the exit but even so oil needs to circulate. I'm still a fan of main bearings lubricated by transmission oil as opposed to 2 stroke mixed with petrol. However bearing technology and application changes. One of my friends, a maintenance engineer couldn't believe that my 07 Sherco had sealed main bearings. However they worked perfectly, better than the open bearings which were an issue with early models. The quality of the bearing fitted can't be underestimated
  7. Chain

    Correct, the pin diameter is different but the better Regina and renthal R1 are very good. How much is the DID ERT2 ?
  8. OOF!!!

    Initially I thought the lanyard must have become separated. It didn't pink which you would expect with it running out of fuel but most of us don't rev it that hard , maybe it doesnt pink if it runs out quickly on main jet
  9. To Nikasil or Not to Nikasil - That is the question.

    I didn't know you could apply nikasil to cast iron cylinders ?
  10. oil change in TRS 280 RR

    I now use the NILS stuff Taff. My clutch was fine on dexron 3 atf from the local car accessory shop. However I then bought GRO trial specific ATF and used that , it made the clutch pack swell (GRO!!!) and so the clutch became heavy. so I swapped one of the fibre plates to get back to the correct pack height and i've stuck to the recommended NILS since and had no more problems.

    video wont make any difference, there was video of Bou restarting his bike at Penrith a few years ago in a no stop trial but the score wasn't changed
  12. Dunlop tyres

    Dunlop fitted at the practice session this morning
  13. Dunlop tyres

    Been running them all year but I'll still check tomorrow 🙂
  14. Fantic 200 betor fork seals

    Some had Betors, similar to the Betors fitted to my twinshock Beta TR240. One of Birketts early 200s did but not sure if they were on production bikes?
  15. Trs Clutch Effort

    A new spring will be quite cheap and easy to fit. You just need to take the inspection cover off , just four bolts not the whole clutch cover, then remove all of the 7mm head small bolts. The beville spring is under the pressure plate. If that doesn't work then either reduce the thickness of one of plates or by 3 new fibre ones. With the correct spring and the clutch pack measuring 9.85mm it should be light enough for you.
