  1. Something else to consider is that the rear tire under power can slip a little, not much and only under the more extreme conditions but it can. When this happens you will hardly notice it on the rear, but if it did happen on the front it would be much more prone to cause an issue at the higher levels of trials.
  2. If your snagging the tip that much the "SIDI Discovery Rain Boots" are there Trails boot design setup with some slight changes for adventure riding and include the steel toe cap faussy is talking about. They are waterproof and a bit stiffer to start out with but soften quite a bit from what I understand so after they the brake should be ok. Here is an example of them. https://www.revzilla.com/product/sidi-discovery-rain-boots?gclid=CJnb-NDY6tICFYpcfgodVtIF5w Good luck. Or you could consider trying a different boot brand? The new AlpineStars and the Gaerne are stitched soles, not sure about others but it should help with this particular problem...
  3. My wife's Gas Gas is still running fine on its plastic one. I haven't ever seen or heard of issues with the plastic ones on Gas Gas.
  4. That sounds like cam chain tensioner to me as well.
  5. Looking good on that enduro. Even your trials video shows that when your not as focused as you need to be you have improved a lot. keep it up!
  6. One of the few items that's just best to be 100% sure about from my point of view. Good luck.
  7. I am a bit of a tight wad so I always change mine based on my perception of not having good grip anymore. I could probably do with changing mine more often but I don't seem to be having issues and I spend less doing it that way so... And I agree with the oni nou, front tyres out lasts lots of rears and its really down to your own budget and preferences...
  8. Well it took a lot longer than next payday but I finally was able to get a Hebo Zone 4 They sent me the wrong color so I have to see about getting that resolved, but I was able to check size and fit. Head shape from what I can tell is more round than I had hoped, it doesn't seem to bad so its a level of between round and oval however with my very oval head it isn't the best helmet for my head. I suspect the Airoh TTR would fit my head better, but I think for the price and fit the Hebo will work ok. I can live with it because it isn't causing pain or discomfort though it isn't a 9 or 10 out of 10. I am hoping with the good venting and everything else it will end up being at least a 7 or 8 out of 10. It will take a ride or two to know, and have to get them to send me the correct helmet color first so maybe a few more weeks before I can give a full review.

In short I can live with it as it will not cause pain or discomfort though it isn't a 10 out of 10, I am hoping the venting and everything else it will end up being at least a 7 or 8 out of 10.

  10. I am also just about the same size at 13 stone and I started on an 08 Gas Gas 125. That 125 was the best thing for me to have started on in my opinion, I have sense moved onto a 250 but the 125 got passed down to my wife and she loves it. I still ride it from time to time and it doesn't have any issues moving me around. I think if I did it over I might have picked up a 200 beta but wouldn't ever thing a 125 is a bad call. Good luck.
  11. Nice misconception/myth I hear a lot is isn't that one of those stunt bikes? Frequently enlightening people on that one... LOL
  12. I was lucky and found a rod kit for sail on Ebay by someone willing to ship to the US. I have had to source a few parts in other ways as a part or two where missing. At the time I picked it up I lived in a state that had a lot of trails connected by sections of road and was going to plate it so I could ride a few good loops. I moved to ID and so haven't needed it with all the good off road riding out here so will likely keep it just in case I need it in the future.
  13. Oh and thanks for the warning on the standard headlight kit. Good to know it heats up that much. Just double checking, but is it the kit that looks like this? (this is the 2017 stickers but I believe its the same headlight assembly)
  14. This is what the 300RR road kit looks like for reference.
  15. FYI: The ACG output is listed as 160W. I don't know how much of that is used by the bike but I do know it has what it takes to run a euro light kit with the standard 12V 35/35W headlight tail light and blinkers without issue so... I should also list the reference link for that information... http://montesatrials.com.au/store/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/PK-COTA-300RR_ENG_2017.pdf
