  1. Clean and check all connections and the earth under the seat and to the coil. If that doesn't improve things check the fuel filter inside the tank and whilst it's out check the fuel pump pressure. Some might say replace the pump anyway, especially if you haven't the equipment to test it; they're cheap enough online. I keep my fuel tank full when the bike is in the garage because I've heard that the fuel pump can dry out and get stuck. These comments may have changed my luck, but up to now my bike starts third kick from cold after two slow kicks to wake the pump up.
  2. Jgas part number 8603154, but it's just a 12x20x5 lipped seal that is readily available online.
  3. Hi Tiewrap, my 2020 is the same as yours and not as shown in the diagram. Bushing #12 is installed with its hexagon end against the frame, then the pedal is fitted and secured by a large washer and lock nut.
  4. I used to run mine at 100:1 (which I think was the recommendation at the time) using Rock Oil synthetic with no ill effects.
  5. You can use either; I'd use the wider one. The holes and slits help the rubber to form a seal around the exhaust. The way it is shown in your last photo is correct.
  6. Hi Tod, I had a similar problem with a bike that had been standing for a long while and found it was due to the main jet being partially blocked by corrosion. Cheers, Dave
  7. Master cylinder seals are leaking. Remove the circlip to extract the piston. The master cylinder bore could be damaged or worn, but more often than not new seals will cure the problem.
  8. You'll find good technical advice from the manufacturer at https://www.rideformula.com/support/downloads/ Scroll down the page to 'Moto' where you'll find illustrated service guides for Trial 39mm standard or racing fork legs.

    It doesn’t show you the maps but allows you to go up to + or -10% on the fuelling and similar in terms of degrees for the ignition timing. The app won’t let you do anything too radical which is intended to protect the motor. It is possible to make it run badly and I guess if you left it that way it for long enough it could be detrimental.

    The wificom comes with limited instructions. There’s a video showing you how to install it on the Vertigo website but little or nothing about how to use it. I couldn’t find anything for the Vertigo on YouTube either but if you search for KTM or Husqvarna tpi bikes you’ll find plenty of stuff from North America showing you how it works.

    I’ve used the Wificom to adjust the fuelling and ignition timing to achieve a set up I prefer over stock. It also allows me to reset the throttle position sensor and check that the system and sensors are working correctly using the self diagnostics. Basically you can make the fuel/air ratio richer or weaker at different rev ranges and throttle openings to suit your riding style or the characteristics of your motor. You can only make adjustments when the bike is running. I consider it a good investment and source of entertainment.
  12. Looking through the entry list for the SSDT the breakdown of bikes entered is as follows:- Beta 83; Gas Gas 52; Montesa 41; Sherco 31; Vertigo 27; TRS 22; Scorpa 21; Honda 3 and TBA 1. I don't know how this compares with previous years, but a healthy range of manufacturers represented. Isn't it funny the things you do when 'on hold' to British Gas?;
  13. They're free with every new throttle, or can be purchased separately from Chris Pearson at Splatshop.
  14. It is easy. All I did with mine was fill the radiator, before lifting the front wheel as high as I could to release air trapped in the water pump and its hoses. Then with the bike level I topped up the radiator again. Do not tighten the radiator cap more than finger tight. Run the motor until the fan comes on and check the coolant level again when cool.
