    gasgas.com only has trials bikes now.Word is no enduro or mx bikes until 2021. I wonder if we will see 2020 trials bikes on the showroom floor of local KTM dealers?

    Have you asked a dealer lately? This came from Mark Berg the COO of GGNA, to my local dealer. I'm guessing John Shirt Jr knows the same info, and has told dealers.

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Reluctant sale of my Ossa tr280. I Bought it in 2017 and stored it until I had completed a new house build. I started riding it mid last year and after a couple of times out the gearbox needed to be ‘renewed’ and also I found out that the big ends did also. Receipts for nearly £1000. I had majority of all the work completed by Nigel Birkett who knows these machines inside out. He informed me that the bike had only 75 hrs use on the ECU. I asked Nigel to replace the front tyre and the front wheel bearing. I only use the bike for practicing on. now the bike is running well I find that my age is against me (61 😕) riding this sort of bike and I am enjoying twin shock riding more. I replaced the graphics last year also. I have Ossa riding gear also that can be negotiated in a deal. contact Dave 07828673700

    2,295.00 GBP

    TRS NIGHTMARE

    I think you've just been a tad unlucky ! My son and I have '17 250 rr and they have had no issues unless inflicted by ourselves which then have been quickly resolved by TRS UK
  7. I really enjoyed his commentary through the sections, was interesting to hear what he was thinking etc..

    TRS NIGHTMARE

    Just goes to show , weve had a 2017 TRSone no problems whatsoever, my sons had 2018 rr 250 no problems sold to a friend of mine still going strong.,currrently have a 2019 trs rr250 and a2020trs 1r that's four bikes ridden more than average ,and the only thing we have replaced is one thermostat ,a twenty minute job, A local guy we know has had two trs raga replicas 2018 ,and just replaced with 2 new 2020 models , unlike youre experience we have found the TRS to be extremely reliable ,smooth to ride and easy to work on.
  10. I notice he rides without gloves too, for that genuine period look. Excellent.
  11. is always good to know that local dealers in the usa know more than us in Europe........

    TRS NIGHTMARE

    Wow! That’s a lot of problems, sounds like you’ve been very unlucky with that particular bike. I’ve had a couple of Friday afternoon bikes in my time and it can be very frustrating. My only advise would be get it sorted get it sold then buy a Montesa and start enjoying hassle free riding. In my group of riding buddies we’ve all changed to 4rt’s over the last 5 years, out of 15 + bikes we’ve not had a single mechanical issue.

    From what you have said, I wouldn't be buying another one either. How old is the bike, 2 years? Its clearly no developed properly before you are having these kind of problems. it shouldn't be corroding in that time, that's poor, and the fact they wouldn't replace the cdi item is also pretty poor, because its clearly not fit for purpose. I would speak to the importer and see if they will help, or failing that, speak to a solicitor and see if you have a case for making them take it back as its not fit for purpose.

    The problem is my dealer who i bought the bike from is very busy 2 -3 weeks its generaly how long it takes for him to fix it. Maybe its just my luck with this bike.

    No idea but they are listing them for sale so I had assumed they were/would be available. I would be holding out for the new model if I was trading in.
  18. 10-time US trials champion Pat Smage giving his all in Europe. Good reminder of just how good the boys from the "continent" are. Nice to hear how humble he is, but wow, what a brave young man he is to even show up! Great job Pat. https://youtu.be/fDOtelRNhUc
  19. A Womens Class rider was DQ'd at a World Round a few years ago for being under the minimum weight. Her bike was weighed at the end of the loop when it was low on fuel. It had gone through the Weigh In, with a full tank of fuel and passed.

    We have a 2018 300 RR. We did have to replace the water pump seal after a 80 mile trials with 80 sections at altitude. Also the fuel cap vent would not vent enough so drilled it out. Total cost zero dollars and 2 day wait time for parts. Awesome machine. It`s my sons and soon to be mine. DWB5151, why does everything take 3 weeks? Very odd.

    Local Gas Gas dealer in the USA, told me 2020 Trials models were just about to start production.
  24. Thanks, that is what I meant but didn't make a very good job of wording it. I want to ride clubman but not the over 50 category even though I am over 50 but wouldn't do it obviously if it excluded me from being able to score points at a championship trial.

    TRS NIGHTMARE

    Where do i begin with this, my first TRS was a 2016 300 model, it was a great bike, reliable and only let me down once. I had done hundreds of hours on it, what problems did i have with it. Well, when the bike was 1.5 years old the kill switch stopped working , turned out to be the CDI box, got it replaced for free. Then the bike started burning oil, nearly caught me out, as it nearly ran out of oil. But it was saved just in time. Being well impressed with the bike on how reliable it had been, and easy to work on i decided to upgrade to a new 2018 trs 300rr. So when i took delivery of the bike I was over the moon with it, but then the problems started. First week the bike started leaking coolant around where the top head meets the cylinder head, contacted the dealer, they presumed it was the head orings. So they replaced the head orings . The bike continued to leak coolant, so phoned the head of TRS turns out the gruves in the head where cut to deep. Problem was they didn't have the parts in to replace them. So we decided to replace the orings in the mean time with bigger ones, the bike was still leaking coolant. So before every ride i had to unscrew the radiator cap and check the coolant. After doing this for a few months the bike started to build up compression in the radiator and shoot coolant out of the expansions area. After taking the radiator cap of that much it started to round on me, so i had to buy an after market one as the standard one is terrible quality. Although the good news is the parts had finally arrived in. So the dealer replaced the head and orings, The thermostat also went due to the compression in the radiator. All replaced under warranty. Then a few weeks later the waterpump seal went, and the bike had to go to the dealer again. Then 3 weeks later it happened again, so I took the bike back to the dealer again to get this fixed ,turned out to be a manufacturing defect on the clutch which was causing this, so the dealer had to send the clutch casing away to see if it could be fixed. It was away three weeks and could not be fixed. So they had to ship out a 2019 clutch casing. Due to this being a manufacturing defect they replaced it. (by this case the bike was out of warrenty so had to pay for the labour) Got the bike back finally hoping everything was sorted, was riding it for a reasonable time and then it decided to start acting up, running terrible literally un-ridable. Presumed it was the CDI box was the culprit, bike was at the dealer for another 3 weeks to figure out what was wrong with it, waiting to get a lend of a cdi box and stator to switch them around to see what was causing the problem. Turned out to be none of them, it was the connector in front of the carb, one of the pins had a slight bit of corrosion on it. So the pin was clean and the bike was running perfect. Then the bike started smoking a lot and it turned out to be the crankcase seal, so the bike was burning oil, bike had to go to the dealer again and was away for another couple of weeks. Then i got the bike back last week next day the bike started to run terrible. The bike was cutting out, rattling and sounding terrible. So back to the dealer again, turns out to be the cdi box, but it wont be replaced like what happen on my previous trs. The reason they wont replace it is due to one of the pins on the connector having a bit of corrosion on it, apparently this is what caused the cdi to go, yet this happens 3 weeks after getting the pin cleaned on the connector, im sorry but this bike has done nothing, not a single trial has been done on it, i have only rode the bike on my own ground, It has spent more time at the dealer getting fixed than anything. The connector is apparently waterproof but yet it isnt going by what happened to it. I sorry when i got my first TRS i would have recommended them to anyone but now no. Im sorry but the quality doesnt seem as good in my opinion, this will be the last TRS i buy.
