  1. Does the 98204Y have rubber shields? I'd make sure beforehand, I had same problem on mine with a tech conversion, Used same 20x42x9, either that or change the hub! SKF produce them with rubber shields but there not cheap!
  2. If the bearings for the Marzocchi now are the 6905 you won't be able to simply swap them for 6004 as the 6905 are 9mm in width opposed to the 12mm for 6004, So you'll need a 20mm ID bearing with a 9mm width also
  3. The VHST 28 with the pump jet hasn't been available from Eurocarb (Dellorto UK) for a long time, You'll have a hell of a job finding one, I have two of them on my bikes, I know somebody with a brand new one if required.
  4. I used to run one on my Evo factory, Was very good, It would only fit with the bump stop at the bottom but it is very tight on the exhaust side, Like you say the reservoir wouldn't clear the swingarm if it was the other way up like the Monts are, They are adapted for the Beta as the Montesa is a different length, Beta is 280mm and Montesa is 265mm, Mine had different internals and the nitrogen pressure was lower than what Monts use.
  5. As above I'd go for the Flywheel weight first and also the slow action throttle, I had a ride the other day on a 16 Sherco 250 & 300 & a 16 Scorpa 300, Both 300's felt far to powerful for me even compared to my 300 Evo, and I agree the revs do build up very quickly which is probably why you are struggling with grip, The flywheel weight should help this a lot, Also make sure the rear suspension is set up for your weight, This will also help with grip, Hope you get it sorted.
  6. Is the fuel tap in the correct position? It should be facing upwards, If it's downwards it won't shut the fuel supply off when the bike is on it's side, It's an electronic tap, If the bike won't run right with it in the upwards position the tap has failed.
  7. He's after a 250F 4t, Not a 2 stroke.
  8. Try a BPR5ES plug rather than standard 7, Engine runs cleaner, It may help improve it.
  9. From Facebook ' Trials practice tomorrow open 9am if there is any change overnight due to weather it will be posted on here tomorrow morning at 8am thank you'
  10. Just sent a message to them on Facebook, Haven't got a reply yet though
  11. I suggest to put it on and see how you get on with it, Personally I prefer having a flywheel weight fitted, It only tends to be the top riders who take them off as they need the power much quicker, But having the weight on will make the bike more manageable to ride at low speed, Help stalling and not spin up as easily
  12. Looks good, Has he put the rear sprocket on yet?
  13. Sounds like the float needle has had it's day, I've had a few in my bike, If you need to tap the bowl and it clears, The needle will be stuck open causing it to flood.
  14. Try this: I think they are listed on there.
  15. DID on most Monts, Apart from the standard 2014/15 260, Which are Morad.
  16. Pinking can be caused from a Lean condition, Causing the engine to run too hot, Check for air leaks and Try using a higher octane fuel, Shell V power is good, And also maybe some octane booster as well, And the low compression insert should help as well, See how you go on.
  17. Termi exhaust is awesome, Very trick, Really light and sounds lovely, Not sure about Mitani, Never used one.
  18. I don't think it will, As the old type plastic cover I think has a lip which pushes on to the engine case to seal, The gasket needs to be on two flat surfaces to seal correctly. The new 14 factory cover is completely flat.
  19. It just depends on the exact tyre you are using, Michelin's you can run low pressure no problem, But with an IRC Rear we found you couldn't run below 5-6 PSI, Because when you hit a drop off the side of the tyre would open up and let air out, Causing it to go completely flat, Pretty poor for a trials tyre. Michelin X11 rear's you can run all day at 3psi. Stick with Michelin! Tried and tested.
  20. Never owned a 250 before, Only had a go on one once, I found the 250 nice and smooth, As were the 290/300 wants to go a bit more, The throttle response is a bit more aggressive on the bottom end, But I found swapping from the 290 to the 300 was different, The 300 seemed slightly less snappy but had more low down torque, Which I found better to be honest, You need to try them to know which you prefer best,
  21. Yes you can do it, All is required is to drill a hole through the mudguard at the front for it to bolt down, The air filter lid fits perfect with no mods required. I recommend cutting down the plastic edge at the front that you are left with, As sometimes It can be annoying when you wear waterproof pants.
  22. The 290/300 Evo's are high compression, So they take more starting than the 250 does, But you don't need to have both feet up to kick it over if you have a strong enough kick. When I switched from my 2010 290, To the 300, I found it was a little harder to kick over.
  23. It's located in the wiring loom near the carb, I think it's to the left hand side tucked in near the frame, If I remember correctly. The capacitor you need is 4700uf 25v, Or you can use a high voltage, On our bike we have a 35v one fitted, Only difference is the fan spins a bit quicker, You can buy them from Maplin or eBay, Or any decent electrical shop, They are about £1 If it is the capacitor that has gone wrong, The fuel tap won't work on the correct position (Upwards) either, Check for this.
  24. It does only fit the 2T, Not the 4 stroke, The Impellor will probably be the same, But the spacer for the casing is different, We run a 2010 Evo 300 4t, And never had any problems with the pump or overheating,
  25. Beta say 550ml, But I always put 500ml In, Never had any problems.
