  1. Leonelli 1210

    Thanks, they also list the part I need here http://www.thehellteam.com/fan-regulator.html I'm pretty sure one of the others will work with just connector changes but I'd like to get specs to confirm so. Note the different terminology regulator vs rectifier.
  2. Decent trials tyre

    I've seen them here in the USA using inexpensive dual sport tires, Shinko, Kenda, etc. Whatever fits and has a vaguely Trialsy tread pattern.
  3. Leonelli 1210

    Thanks for the advice, I've been waiting for a response from Birkett. Kevin at Scorpa USA, who imported and sold the bike in 2011, told my local dealer that we were on our own trying to find this part. They apparently have no interest in, or intention of, helping source or identify the part.
  4. Leonelli 1210

    Yes, it looks like that but with one different connector, which I could change if I knew that they were functionally equivalent.
  5. Leonelli 1210

    I need a replacement rectifier for an older Scorpa that, as yet, I haven't been able to source through Scorpa sources. It is the little black box plugged into the fan that most of us have seen on Trials bikes. It is marked Leonelli with a number 1210 stamped into it. I can't find any reference to it on the internet and Leonelli seems to have no presence here in the USA for me to contact. Can anyone suggest where I can find this part or get specs for it so I can replace it with something else? I don't know, for example, if it also regulates voltage or has any other functions.
  6. Decent trials tyre

    The 250 pound motorcycle is likely a factor. I think the MT43 may have stiffer sidewalls than the Pirellis you used in the old days.
  7. Decent trials tyre

    I believe the Montesa uses a different brand of tubeless rim DID vs Morad (my 4RT did), one might be better than the other but both are used on Trials bikes.
  8. Decent trials tyre

    Morad rims with the rubber band as used on trials bikes for many years. Once when riding my KTM across a long off camber slab the tire burped out all it's air but didn't unseat. It takes just the right combination of forces to make it happen. If I maintain a minimum of 6PSI I've never had a problem.
  9. Decent trials tyre

    I have two enduro bikes with tubeless rear rims. The MT43 will occasionally unseat and lose it's air at pressures below 6psi. I assume it's a result of the stiff bias ply sidewall.
  10. Vandal?

    I don't know who that is but I don't think I'll hold my breath waiting for the bike.
  11. Vandal?

    Is the E start Vandal really going to happen?
  12. Where do the two nuts on a new Michelin trials tube go?

    The two nuts are an anachronism, they were used to clamp the rim between them to locate the valve stem but dirt bikes don't use them and street bikes don't use tubes anymore.
  13. The manual in the USA was on a VHS tape. I don't know if there was a printed manual in the UK you might be able to find or if anyone has converted the VHS to digital that you might be able to access. You might be able to work out some air by squeezing the rear hose rapidly with your fingers. BPR5ES plug should work fine.
  14. Bultaco 199a Frame Mods

    I hand formed a piece of flat steel to replace the loop that was impacting my sensitive parts on descents.
  15. Can someone identify these forks ?

    Obviously not Trials forks, look Suzuki-ish to me. There is probably a logo or casting # somewhere on the clamps.
