  1. Jumping onto this thread abit ,my apologies but has anyone tried a 2022 260 yet? It’s had a fair amount of upgrades over the 2020 with Showa front and back and the new exhaust ,I’m really fancying one and the price is very attractive but I don’t know how it would weigh up against the 301??
  2. Jitsie are advertising big news coming on the 1/12/2021 I wonder if they’re going to unveil their own trials machine? I always wondered why no one bought all the tooling for the ossa bikes when they folded with gas gas ,they’d still be a good machine now with abit of an update .especially when the likes jotagas can still keep going
  3. Hi every one I know this has been covered a few times but I haven’t been able to find a step by step guide on how to actually remove the additional weight that’s pressed onto the gear on an evo ?I’m going to remove the flywheel weight aswell (Covid boredom+intrigue) I believe that a puller is needed for the gear side aswell to remove it ? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated
  4. Thanks for the replies lads much appreciated , so the 3mm thick plates go back and front do they? Eric your right when I took the clutch pack out it was all stuck together in one big mess.when I was riding yesterday my clutch was gradually getting worse and worse to the point where I had to wind the adjuster all the way in to have any clutch at all! Looking forward to seeing the results after I’ve done it , I’ll keep you posted
  5. Just removed my plates to do the mod , I appear to have two different types of plate , all but 2 of them have larger gaps between the tabs.the one on the left on the photo is really sticky and looks like it will benefit from the mod ,the others look ok , am I missing something?
  6. World 125 junior champion Kieran touly has given up on trials the year after his championship win due to no funding or manufacture support from scorpa/Sherco .Bad news for the sport imo ,is this what modern day world trials has become ?an elite sport where serious backing or a large wallet is more important than talent ?

    Factory 2020

    For Anyone wondering what the new factory model is going to look like , There was a video streamed live of loris gubian testing it today on Facebook ,not sure if it was by accident as it hasn’t been released yet ?basically it’s got gold wheels and a lot of blue and red very similar to the 2018 factory from what I could make out
  8. Ridiculous answer ^, you’ve got plenty of options really , you can either buy new bars or bar riser sets ,the standard bars are 4.5 inch you can get a set of renthal fat bars in 5.0 rise or jitsie and apico do 5.0 5.5 or 6 inch rise
  9. From what I’ve seen in the past 2 days On social media and given his southern experts result He already looks to be riding better !I think it’s a good move , he just hasn’t looked comfortable at all on that beta this year ,good luck to him
  10. It’s on a beta so the clamps are part of the top yoke hence needing the shims, always preferred the feel of braced bars it’s just a personal thing , not necessarily weaker just a different set up , Michael brown and dan Thorpe up until very recently have always used the older style renthals
  11. Sorry yes it is , basically I want to run a standard pair of renthal braced bars in the same clamps that are designed for the braceless renthal fatbars ? The old type are described as 7/8 handlebar whereas the fat bars are described as 1/8 so I’m not sure what this refers to?
  12. Anyone know where I can get hold of some shims to take the handlebar clamp diameter down from 1/8 to 7/8 ? I’ve checked flea bay but can only find some that will be shipped from China so don’t fancy them ,any ideas ??
  13. Something in the pipeline then dabster? Like I say I hope there is he’s too good to stop now
  14. The more time passes the more I think maybe Dabill just couldn’t. Get a factory ride for next year ? He’s out of contract with beta although he’s still down to ride Sheffield , such a shame if he does bow out without a trial gp win has he’s more than capable it’s just never happened for him
  15. where’s he off to then? Scorpa maybe?cant think where else dibs could go now
  16. The Spanish championship is stop allowed and I don’t see it slowing there progression, I think this is absolutely fantastic news and just what the series needed, look at the north berks super trial and the spectators that draws in,no stop just doesn’t work at this level and above it’s just too hard to observe properly it’s clearly not working at world level either ,looks to me like some one has finally sat up and realised , roll on 2020 I say !!
  17. That’s assuming dibs has definitely chucked the towel in and won’t ride gp? I think miquel is still a very promising rider it will be interesting to see how he does on a different bike , aniol to trs i believe
  18. Correct me if I’m wrong but wiggy rode the trial 2 class in 2007 on that screaming 125 he won the championship with the year before ? If he did finish second that year then that was one hell of a result , I’m assuming he was too young to ride a full cc bike that year?
  19. At the back end of last year martyn was looking really good he was amazing to watch I honestly believe losing the title the way he did has broken his spirit this year he just hasn’t looked the same rider and his results have gone backwards so maybe one more year in trial 2 won’t hurt him he’s still very young , I’d like to see dibs in trial 2 on a 4 stroke beta that would be interesting ?
  20. I think dibs is more than likely going to stay where he is now , Miguel gelabert and his younger brother have both signed for vertigo apparently ,and busto is staying put aswell so that pretty much ties up all the loose ends , I agree with trial 2 there should be a limit on how many years you can compete in there if you’ve won it , what is grattarola actually achieving by staying there he should be back in trial gp
  21. I agree I think it would be a shame if dibs did call it a day he had his best ever result on a vertigo and it seemed to suit him well so hopefully he will finish his career off there , all the other rumours are looking less likely. Now apart from maybe casales to gasgas like you said I’d imagine they’ll want a Spanish number one factory rider and he’s got massive potential still
  22. I noticed that whilst dabill was winning the Scott there was a big beta gathering in Italy and dabill hasnt thanked beta on his social media posts so definitely looks like he’s on the move ,

    Here’s my guess , jack price will set standard time and be first man home , Dibs will win on observation by a very slim margin
  24. I agree that’s probably the most likely outcome , hope he doesn’t retire before he cracks the top 5
  25. Some interesting rider change rumours for 2020 coming from across the pond ! Busto and Miquel gelabert to beta , jorge casales to gasgas ,aniol gelabert to trs and James dabill and Franze kadlec to both quit altogether !time will soon tell if any of it is true , I can’t see dabill calling it a day yet though and kadlec has had a good year so seems strange for him to stop ,it would also leave vertigo with no riders at all which I can’t see
