  1. I guess it's a fine balance between lots of jobs and reducing number of volunteers . Routes are kept under cover to stop illegal riding before and during etc. With fuel costs etc then people can't always afford to go and spectate anymore - don't think it's just the ssdt. having ridden. The ssdt a few time the coverage during the week is normally good to follow from your desk or armchair. Think maybe just a sign of the times. Apart from the world round uk trials seem light on spectators as people have other commitments . With the factories not as interested in the ssdt I guess it's more for the riders and close supporters now. Not bought a tmx for years and the web is so good but very much for the now and not weeks in advance I can understand it may appear last minute but that's the way we consume things now. With over subscribered entries something is still very good with the ssdt.
  2. I read an article on ragas bike prep and his mechanic does this to his bike as final prep. Must be something in it!
  3. I have a softer Lia map I have made myself if you feel you want to soften off the bottom even more. ideal on slippery streams especially with the larger front pipes
  4. A fresh oiled filters will stop the bike from starting especially if you us an aerosol type. spraying wd40 ( other brands available) around the mudguard intake area when running bike after washing causes revs to drop so they can be confused.
  5. Liaorg bottomleft on 1 stage maps. you willl need to convert to a dual map version using the software also available on that site
  6. Try an iun oiled filter and let it tick over for 10 mins i think the efi is more clever than looking at the plug colour unless you do s plug chop once its warm
  7. Barfy had a n issue with his idle screw. The throttle stop was as said only effecting 100% throttle position. Sounds a bit fuel pump related to me - they start by playing up when warm and then get worse. Possibly some dodgy fuel has effected internals of the pump
  8. I bought a 2009 with 280 kit and put it back to a 250 and found much more manageable. My 15 260 is nicer again so unless you feel you are struggling for power would be 100 certain before spending a lot of time and money etc. What maps are you running? What is your riding style? PS -apologies for being cheeky above
  9. Do you live in the south, ride British Champ or weigh 20 stone
  10. How did it all start originally sounds like we are starting halfway through the story the more Info the better . can he swap the tank and fuel pump?
  11. Cracking job Andy. Those wet Saturday mornings can now be filled looking back at past events and recollection if only I hadn't dabbed there etc.
  12. Maps on the std bike goes to 12,000 rpm
  13. Cosmetic, less to get in the way and neatens up electrics Assuming same as the 260/250 then junk the bottle under the head stock for oil breather. Use small in line fuel filter if you want and tuck breather under head stock. Remove all the fuel line stuff and just have breather or button top on cap. Block hole where pipe used to go into air box. Move relay from below throttle body up under head stock. Think this has been on here before if you want a little more detail.
  14. I think about 1/2" down and back. I thinks it's mentioned 16 sales blurb. i didn't feel anything obvious but front wheel did seem to push out a little bit with the weight change. Bike grips well. my elbows have been hurting the last few months like when I first switched to the 4rt. Maybe result of the slightly different position?
  15. Hangers are about £20 each and can get from any Honda dealer so cheaper than bars
