    95 Jt160 Gearing?

    I have a 1995 GAS GAS JT160 and lately I have been hitting the top of the power band in the lower gears while riding in sections. I feel slower then most bikes even the newer 125's. Theres also this what I like to call no go period where the power doesn't kick in for almost a half turn of the throttle. It was never ridden in competetion by its first owner. My boyfriend rides in the Advanced class and he even says it seems unusually slow. It has a 10 tooth sproket in the front and I was thinking about changing it to an 11 tooth. Should I even mess with the gearing?

    What Size

    If you feel comfortable on a smaller bike then get one.. I think a 125 0r 200 would be perfect. I have never had this problem I'm about 5'6ish (well according to the Military) and about 150 lbs. I could kick my pain in the butt 175CC, 170lb GAS GAS over no problem with 2 fractured hips and a fractured pelvis. I know girls who are 5'2 and about 100lbs who can kick over a 300. If you dont want to get rid of your bike I would say work out, get more strength in your legs.

    Thanks! I've been trying to do most of those things but I guess its all mind over matter and trying to get my brain and my body to corporate. But don't worry my fiance is making me do figure 8's and circles til I fall over dizzy or run out of gas and fall over whichever comes first.

    Well I'm new to this world of trials and I need major help with turning. Can anyone give me any tips to help?

    Why does 3 + infinity = 3?

    Say we count all dabs up to 5 and a new novice rider 5's EVERY section wouldn't that be discouraging? I've seen some sections where guys have taken more than 3 dabs but they were trying not to but especially in water sections it is very difficult. They rules are fine as is. Believe me my future father in law and I have had talks about the rules, he likes the old rules of no stopping in a section and what not.

    How/When did you get started?

    Well we hung out a couple times but it was just at each others houses nothing too special. We just call that our first date since it was outside of each others houses.

    How/When did you get started?

    well my story is now in my original post up top if anyone cares to read it
  11. I've just been wondering how/what got you started in trials and when did you start? Well mine is a bit unique to say the least. My first official date with my current fiance was at a trials event. He had me scoring a section with him and his father and told me that the pros were coming up the rock I was on but failed to tell me just how close well I was about a foot away from their boots lol. And I've been hooked ever since =)
  12. Ah 40 degrees at midnight =).. Its warming up =).. Come on spring =P
