  1. Beta or TRS

    As the title says im not sure which one to go for. I have a 2016 TRS 300 which i have owned for over a year and i have had no problems with it, but its time for an upgrade. I was originally going to go for another TRS but i was at the local bike dealer and he had a TRS which had cracked its interior cylinder head and hes having problems getting parts to fix it. This has made me worry if anything goes wrong with my TRS parts might be difficult to get. As well as this there are two TRS dealers where i live, one of which doesn't take trade ins . The other is a good 2 hour drive away but will take trade ins, but i am waiting for information on what deal he would be doing. I was down at a local trial today and i had a go on a 2018 beta factory 300 4t, I thought it was very good and my local bike dealer can get the parts for them no problems, and he will take a trade in. But im not sure on what to do as i like the TRS a lot but i also like the beta. But there are several things which put me of the Beta as well. from what i gather taking the carb out of them takes a long time and parts can be expensive. But i like the way they are cheap to run. Any advice would be appreciated many thanks
  2. Best trials bike for 2018?

    I have a 2016 trs i have had no problems with it, great bike and really well made. i have to order parts which takes a couple of days for delivery.
  3. 2011 sherco or 2012 jotagas 250

    I had a 2011 sherco 290, worked great for a year then I started having problems. Watch the frame on them my bent on me down at the footrests, so much that the chain was hitting it and i'm not a A rider. The radiator always gets hit by the yokes on the forks and the suspension doesn't last. Personally if I had to choose from those two bikes, i would go for the jotagas. At least they are easy to work on.
  4. New Bike

    Thats what made me go for the TRS, so easy to work on and well made. I have only ridden the 250 and decided to go for a 300 secondhand from Johnlee ,couldn't be more pleased with the bike and the service from them. The vertigo in my opinion is too expensive and seems to be having a lot of problems.
  5. 125

    i think so to be honest i didn't fix it, as i was that annoyed with it. I only had it a couple of months. When the bearings went it had piston slap afterwards. But i still rode it with the piston slap, I was going to get the engine fixed but changed it to a 2011 sherco.

    Watch the side bearings in them, the side bearings went on me which resulted in piston slap but still ran well.
  7. Trs rr vs gasgas gp

    TRS is a great bike, easy to maintain and parts aren't bad price wise. Haven't had any problems with mine, coming from a 2011 sherco you cant compare the two.
  8. New bike

    Found this on the internet its apparently a new bike coming to the market. What do you think?
  9. Reiger vs Ohlins?

    I disagree i had the r16v shock on my TRS and it was like a brick even set up right i was struggling for grip.so bought an ohlins and what a difference. It improved the grip massively.
  10. Sooting The Spark Plug?

    I think i have found out what the problem was the pulse pump was pushing to much fuel through. I noticed this when a full tank of fuel wouldn't even last an hour. Then the bike wouldn't start , so we changed the CDI box now it starts and run right, Thanks for the advice.
  11. 2018 TRS RR.

    From what i gather its a sneak peak of the 2018 trs rr so they are all going to have a polished frame which i am alright with, its easier to get a scratch out of instead of having a painted frame.
  12. should i buy help please

    The only upgrade which i have done to my trs is putting an ohlins shock in it , it makes a massive difference compared to the r16v.
  13. should i buy help please

    If i where to buy a new trs the one thing which i would do is put a wider skid plate on it, to help protect it. I am still considering getting it for my one at the minute. http://www.splatshop.co.uk/csp-sump-guard-plate-trs.html
  14. should i buy help please

    Having owned a montesa 315r now a 2016 trs 300 i can tell you that all the trs are very smooth, build quality is great, it has been very well thought out. You will notice a big diference weight wise as the trs is 65kg its a lot lighter and handles really well. Get a test ride on it to see what you think of it.
  15. Stator

    Ok got the bike started, i drained the fuel tank and washed it out and connected the tank up, then i filled it with fuel and kick it 20 times then left it for 10 minutes started first kick but opened up full throttle. I found out the cable connected to the top of the carb had been pulled out of it position. I havent started it yet but hopefully it should be ok.
