  1. I have a Ti Mitani front pipe on my 250 4RT and it's a thing of beauty and weighs a lot less than the Honda oem front pipe I love the blue colour, it has turned and makes me happy
  2. I still don't think there is a reason for ES on a trials bike I have a 4RT and an older TYZ, both are first time starters when warm at a trial
  3. I have a new 315R rear wheel from a 2004 bike in my 4RT (with Showa) and it fits & a 4RT front wheel, just use them as spares
  4. Had this with mine over the weekend, a mechanic serviced it last week and went through it all (valves/bearings/oils etc) all running fine and last thing he did was turn the tickover down as he thought it was too high (he's used to carbed Trials bikes) Picked it up on Sat and he went to run it up, no start Plug out and smelt of fuel, no spark Put another new plug in, no spark He then told me about the tickover, as his final job Aha, turned it out... 1 fullout on the throttle body Throttle reset and fired right up, he was amazed Runs fine now
  5. Best thing would to junk the crap sidestand altogether or at least fit a Mitani one Then you wouldn't have wasted that hour😀
  6. Thanks for bringing it to our attention
  7. Have you met him? I don't think you would say that to him, face to face................ Jitsie are recording it and editing it, it's available to their Jitsie club membership fan base Join the Jitsie members club, then you can see it all No such thing as a 'free lunch' in this world
  8. Well I did it !!!! Stu (from Ebor Club) emailed me a link and I tried it and allowed me to re-join my Club and then proceed to renew my 2023 Trials licence (and actually pay £20 for it) and I got a receipt from Stripe/ACU/Sport 80 Did the medical questionnaire & uploaded a new pic of myself and bingo, we're in for next year Not easy though and I am pretty computer savvy
  9. My problems too, all summed up in your post It's a complete mess, without prior warning to riders or clubs ACU - you failed to plan and thus planned to fail with this new system............without explaining it to the Trial membership and Clubs
  10. Glad you enjoyed it, nothing beats the Scott for a spectacle of feat and endeavour
  11. I had a Godden framed 1982 one, a few years ago and I got it road registered at the local DVLA office I managed to obtain a letter from John Shirt Snr that stated he was the creator of the Majesty Yamaha and the frame number on my bike, was for a 1982 bike and this sufficed as a dating certificate, as it was signed/dated and on JST headed paper 2-3 years ago I road registered a Yamaha TYZ and the previous owner had a Yamaha dating letter from a few years previous and I used a specialist agent affiliated to VMCC to do all the road registration paperwork, as it was damn sight easier to pay them to do it, as all the local DVLA offices are shut A friend (with a NOVA cert and all the original Italian paperwork) registered a 1984 Moto Guzzi in 2020 and it came back from Swansea with 20 registration plate and he couldn't get them to change it, to a 1984 prefix Now the local DVLA offices are shut, it has gone to pot
  12. Not a problem with Trials media coverage with it all on Facebook and the likes of Jitsie doing their own media channels Print media, is as dead as the dodo................it's finished Twitter/Facebook and Instagram are where it's at and you can interact directly with the stars and 'converse' with them online
  13. Women and girls in trials? Blimey, it's never been so good for them to get involved in 2022, there's even classes and championships devoted to women only, plus they can compete side by side with the men too, on the same terms and an equal footing (they can't do that in Tennis/Football/Golf championships - it's either MEN or WOMEN) At club Trials, there's a good number of women competing each week and doing very well Compare that to 30-40 years ago and there were virtually zero women at trials, competing It's fine as it is, at present and good on them............Emma is the best ambassador we have got
  14. Bainbridge Hill Climb, strikes again..............😀
