  1. Various Facebook posts tend to indicate that Cabastaney has parted ways with Sherco.
  2. ???
  3. Does the ride include the BTC? The Montesa Has not proven to be that effective unless Bou is riding.
  4. Seems a retrograde step to me. Probably about staying in WTC and costs rather than the better ride.
  5. We switched at the last change to the Castrol Transmax Z as Chris was losing clutch feel as the oil warmed. Not had any problems since. Helpful it's longevity seems to be good.
  6. Welcome to Batley Classic and Modern!
  7. Looks good. Would need to clear the Side door of the Primastar but what I had in mind.
  8. We have bought a van to transport the Vertigo. Does anybody have any recommendations for wheel chocks or a way to hold the bike. We did look at one that holds by the foot pegs but aren't sure it works with Trials Bikes. Its called the MX Lock and load. Anybody used it or anything like it?
  9. I used two straps both about 10 metres long. I hooked on to the rear front loop, wrapped it round the rear tyre though the top hoop several times leaving enough to go though the ratchet which was on the rear hook. The Front went from the rear loop. twice around the fork leg though the wheel twice around the outer fork leg and though the ratchet and gently tightened up. The Ratchet goes on the same loop on the crossbar as the strap.I used some Pipe insulation on the rear Upright to stop the wheel paint being rubbed away. Even if it was cut the rear would need them to stand and unravel it before making off. The Bike went as far as Surrey from Leeds and back using this method. It allows the bike to move gently but not dismount.
  10. Chris Found map 4 very useful at Cowling Cragg the other week. His bike was pretty much the only one not trailing smoke once warm.
  11. A different bike to the 2016 bike that preceded it. It's more like a Gas Gas in the way it rides and the Heavier duty rear spring and different linkage are a real improvement over the 2016 for riders who like to stop and bounce. It also is very good on traction as well. Apart from that it looks great, I still have to change the air filter and it just goes when you need to fiddle with a carb when you change altitude.
  12. Chris doesn't seem to have any problem but the Fajado has a heavier spring. He did tighten the spring on his old Combat Camo so maybe that will help?
  13. Try ECCO in Bradford. Never paid anything like that for a Witter from them and they have fitted all of them.
  14. Vertigo UK recommend 25ml to 5Litres which is 200:1. We use the Rock Oil Strawberry synthetic and as others have stated when you do rev it there is a slight haze which we take to confirm it is the correct mix.
  15. I would recommend the Witter detachable "flange" towbar. The racks only work with the Flange type with a detachable tow ball. I have used them with the Dave Cooper for 8 years with no problems. The Dave Cooper we have dates back to 2001 and it has been used on several cars. All the bits are still in good if slightly rusty condition as the ones back then weren't galvanised.
