  1. This is a great discussion, it's refreshing to see everyone chipping in on this. __________________________________________________________ Bikespace, Thanks for the specific rule number, apparently I didn't "SCOUR" it too well LOL. Craig, You're absolutely right, if this was being done in such a trivial place in our section, who knows how many other times it had been done in other sections. I was not personally given the printed sheet you mentioned, it may have been in the Section Captain's packet, but I did not see it. Dabber, The Golf analogy is one that I too had been thinking of since Duluth. I believe that there are a few factors in play here; the golf crowds are bigger and more rules savvy, also there are cameras on the pro golfers at all times. It's hard to escape scrutiny when you have so many people/press around that will actually make a stink about the pro
  2. That's what I figured, thanks for the info. After checking out the results, the extra 2 points wouldn't have changed the standings in this situation.
  3. First of all, to say that Cody nailed section two (lap two) is an understatement. I was observing section two both days and he was the only clean we had on Saturday. We were all sitting around under a tent near the entrance of the section, waiting for the riders to start showing up when it started raining. Cody & Kip came tearing up and immediately wanted to ride the section; we barely had enough time to scramble up the hillside and take our places. Cody blasted up it like he had been practicing it all his life, It was quite impressive. I
  4. Besides the obvious environmental issues, are there any drawbacks to running leaded fuel in a trials bike? I've been looking for higher octane fuels in my area and the only stuff above 92 is some 100 octane leaded that I stumbled across. Of course I won't be running it, but it got me thinking...is leaded fuel bad for a trials bike? All I can think of is, there's no catalytic converter to muck up, so theoretically, I suppose it's probably better for it than unleaded (again, not that I'm going to run it in my Beta).
  5. Here's my 2002 Rev-3.
  6. Neosurge, I've had the exact same problem with my 2002 Rev-3. I'm not too upset about it, so I haven't pursued the issue. Like you, if I'm riding downhill and stop, then turn the bike off, it's nearly impossible to get started again until I level the bike out. I've also noticed some gas coming from the overflow a few times when this has happened. Also, when riding down a slow downhill giving it no gas the bike will kill, almost like it's flooded. I also notice a strong gas smell accompanied with these situations. Since I'm not too well versed in carb tuning and the like, I just decided keep the clutch in and give it a little more gas while on these slow downhills, but I too would like to know if there's a simple solution to my problem.
  7. CityTrials, I'm sorry I didn't reply to your email. My life got busy and I wasn't able to make it down to round 6. After hearing your post, I really wish I could have gone. Congrats go out to Pat and Andy, great work fellas.
  8. Rich, thanks for the compliment! Here are the details from that photo: Camera- Canon EOS 10D Lens- 28mm end of a Sigma 28mm-70mm EX DF Aperture- f/2.8 Shutter speed- 1/2000th Quad
  9. Here's my '02 Beta
  10. If I knew, I'd tell ya man.
  11. Heh, I was more concerned with those kids trying the X-Games moves (like this Superman) during their sections.
  12. Richard, This being my first trials bike, I guess I didn't know what to expect. Truthfully, the bike is in really good shape considering I bought it from Ron sight unseen. A used bike is perfect for me because I'd be so paranoid about scratching a new bike that I'd never ride it! LOL
  13. I just talked to Ron and he already has a clutch line and coil cover on the way to me via this thread! Now that's service! I know, I know, I should have called him yesterday, I don't know what I was thinking...I guess it was the procrastinator in me taking over although my wife attributes it to me being stupid! USBeta was a pleasure to work with, I can't say enough good things about these guys! Thank you so much!
  14. Well, I got my bike yesterday...the thing is awesome! The clutch line apparently broke during shipping but Ron is taking care of that for me (2nd day air)! Thanks Ron, for your excellent customer service! Here's a link to some pics of it. http://quadrajet.smugmug.com/gallery/156272 Edited because I was too dumb to call Ron when I first saw the shipping damage.
  15. kevinj, I have the form for the UMTA filled out and plan on bring it with me to Hixton this weekend. Will you be in Hixton Kevin? No I won't be riding in Hixton but I'll be there taking pictures, so look for the guy with the Canon 10-D.
