  1. S3 I bought them following recommendation on TC, Superb.
  2. Thanks everyone plenty of choices for this year. alex .
  3. I would quite like details of a Scott equivalent time observation trial for next year suitable for clubman / youth.
  4. The same happened to me as happened to stpauls above however the solution was to pull the lever out a few millimetres. It was an after market part I bought also Apico. alex
  5. You are spoilt for choice in the area. My son is similar age and has done trials this year over border with Bolton / Darwen / Rochdale & Manchester 17 clubs ( a bit further away ) and also Horsforth, Spen Valley & West Leeds In Yorkshire as they also do trials specifically aimed at Beginners. You can just about do a trial every weekend if you are prepared to travel.
  6. Not sure if any lever is guaranteed unbreakable. I had the same problem with my sons bike, levers bending regularly, and bought a set of flexi levers from Splat Shop in England. Very happy problem solved I would recommend.
  7. I had exactly the same problem with my Montesa. New iridium plug sorted issue. Never fails to amaze me, how easy my bike starts even after weeks sat doing nothing. It is definitely a push more than Gas Gas style kick.
  8. Yes they very much do, currently at development stage, give your name to Nick at Vertigo and he will contact you when the Bike is ready to test.
  9. Agree I was an observer, the iPad scoring was interesting as well ( backed up with punchcard as stopgap until technology proven) Not sure if 4 observers per section would work for club trials however ! you could download an app to keep up to speed on who was leading, which was very interesting. This I understand is part of big picture for mass audience appeal. Thoughts on the future !
  10. I think you will be ok with a 250 bearing in mind your past off-road exp
  11. Not sure if this applies to this model but later 4rts, it is quite usual to fit a 9 front sprocket which slows bike down and may assist you..
  12. S3s arrived quickly last week courtesy of splatshop. Fitted and they are superb. Thanks everyone for the advice.
  13. I think you have to pay
  14. I moved a few months ago from a Sherco 250 2006 which was an excellent bike, just fancied a change as bike was getting old , to a 2015 mint 4rt which I got a good deal on, still getting used to it but first impressions are good, the build is excellent, brilliant on the moors ( sounds great when you open it up), best clutch I have ever had, still however going through adjustment period, as different technique required, so whilst it feels better, debate if any better in reality at this stage. Only problem I had with 4rt was starting it at outset, a new iridium plug solved that. On the basis you only ride once a month, I suspect you are like me ( no Toni Bou or jrsunt ) so adjustment may not be so critical as starting point lower for our level. I would also say go for it and join the 4rt club.
  15. Thanks everyone. I have ordered S3 hardrocks
