  1. hi, we have a problem with our beta evo 125 2013, it got stuck in gear and won't release at all, has anyone else had any problems,or know how to fix it, assuming its a big strip down? thanks Mick
  2. I have a beta evo and having problems with the front brake, I have noticed that 2 of the pistons are not coming back out of the caliper, so deciding to rebuild it, does anyone know how to do this cheers
  3. we are having a headache with the dvla, for my 1980 fantic 200, have sent off all proof of the dating certificate with the VMCC, nova, insurance tax my id proof of address, and it's on its way back for a second time, they reckon need more info on dating, but did that through the VMCC, so don't get it, really p!ssed off with it all, I have given them my telephone number, so if they had half a brain they could ring, but that would be too easy
  4. hi, what is the best way to clean the centre pipe, as mine is well gunked up inside, thanks in advance Mick
  5. when I was changing the seals on the waterpump, the impeller was broken in pieces, but the shaft looks ok but was further inside the engine because the impeller and circlip wasn't holding it out, would this be normal, or might it have done some damage I can move the shaft in and out slightly (not taken it out) and does turn round freely hope you can understand what I mean , what do you think cheers
  6. hi the fan stopped working today on our beta evo 125, i don't have a voltage tester so could i test it with a car battery, to see if the fan is working and that it isn't the thermostat, would that be the correct voltage ?? thanks
  7. Thanks for your replies, all very helpful, now have them out and also repaired this morning
  8. hi i have been trying to take the forkseals out of the stanshions, the top seal came out quite easy but i am having problems getting the bottom seal out on both of the stanshions, and have broken pieces out of the tops of both stanchions, has anyone got any ideas how to get these out without further damage, and also do you know any good repairers please thanks
  9. just want to say a big thank you to all the organisers and observers and marshalls, for a fantastic trial, shame Kieran is too old next year, and didn't quite complete it but did better than he did last year.
  10. hi thanks for your reply, it is helpful, if I head into ilkley itself, (coming from Leicester, down south) is ilkley bridge easy to find, according to the entrance form, it should be signed from there, but will write down your directions, many thanks and well done on your achievement, Mick
  11. hi, we are taking part in this on saturday, well my son is, does anyone know of a post code or pub? near to the start of the venue, having never done this before not entirely sure where to start, also not been to ilkley or that area before, cheers
