  1. Yes, he could have used a kill switch with his right hand.
  2. Lanyards: Not perfect, as I commented on an earlier thread after witnessing what happened to Pol Tarres at the world round. The lanyard definitely made that situation dangerous as Pol couldn't kill the screaming engine without taking his hand off the clutch which would have fired the bike off into the distance.
  3. One of them does.
  4. I would check the stator, well know weak spot on this bike, some people have had several replacements, I had one also failed, bad starting and/or erratic starting are symptoms. As is running for a short while until hot, then stopping and refusing to re-start.
  5. These weren't designed to use ATF, I'd be looking at a proper trials clutch fluid if you don't find anything else wrong.
  6. Id sell both & get something newer, parts won't be an issue then.
  7. Ive had 2 Evos brand new and although both carbs were set up perfectly, every now & again fuel would pour out of the carb vents. I suspect floats sticking occasionaly as there clearly is nothing else wrong on stripping them down. If you can smell fuel then you need to have a really close look to find the source.
  8. Don't forget a lot of people gear their bikes higher for the Scottish.
  9. 1991 Gas Gas Delta with red plastics like the later contact models. Original plastics would be green/purple. The purple hubs and "gas gas" casting on the clutch case are the giveaway.
  10. Sounds like carburation to me, have you swapped carb with the other bike & tried it then?
  11. Get a proper test ride on a 4RT before you buy, they don't suit everyone.
  12. No. But I don't crash so much now.
  13. Haha, I honestly didn't see that when I posted!! Must be losing it!
  14. I assume your not in the UK then?
  15. It would need to be a lot different to the monstrosity shown above.
