  1. I did exactly what turbofurball did but normal trials pressures in tyres. I got however hacked off with the time it took. If you have only 1 bike a dave cooper rack (or similar) is pretty cheap and far quicker to load and on road. A van is clearly a better option from a theft point of view.
  2. Very interesting a Gas Gas that no one will have starting problems with. I would be tempted but price seems OTT, hopefully scale would bring it down eventually. If I have calculated exchange rate it seems around 11K so it is a no at this stage.
  3. I think you could do most local club trials on this starting with a full tank assuming the tank is the same size as a sherco 125. I used to fill up on 3rd lap ( on my sons bike) but stopped doing it recently as I felt I didn't really need to and touch wood have not ran out. I would be interested on views generally on this, appreciate the bigger 2 stroke bikes will drink more fuel. Am I cutting it to close to the bone is the question.
  4. My son has done it in the past, we just turned up on day and entered. It was an excellent trial set out by factory Kev I believe. Just get your ACU licence in advance, although you may well be able to apply on the day ( not sure about this) The sections are ideal for a beginner and we may well do this one, only slight drawback for us is they are quite a way from West Yorkshire. I would just turn up and enjoy and not worry about technicalities, it is stop allowed. If you have any questions just ask a observer or one of the club officials or riders, they are a friendly bunch.
  5. S3 I bought them following recommendation on TC, Superb.
  6. Thanks everyone plenty of choices for this year. alex .
  7. I would quite like details of a Scott equivalent time observation trial for next year suitable for clubman / youth.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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 !
  14. I think you will be ok with a 250 bearing in mind your past off-road exp
  15. 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..
