  1. Shafts are not "poor quality" they run at crankshaft speed so both should be replaced at the same time as the seal. RULE: if you replace seal do the shaft at the same time. And do not fill radiator right up to the top. There is no "expansion tanks" in this cooling system so leave 8-10mm air gap in the top header tank to allow for that "expansion" as it warms up and it will be fine. Top it all the way up and that few mls will just either blow out the pressure relief valve, or past that worn shaft in your case (which is easier - but it will go out of one or the other)!
  2. I believe the Gas Gas Part number for the cable is: EM10225TT-CLR-1
  3. There is an OBD connection port with a JST plug from 2018 bikes onwards. Black plug, right hand side, near frame rail middle of tank area. Should have a blanking plug in it. You need the Leonelli cable that goes from the JST plug on the bike to the OBD cable on the reader to make it work though.
  4. Hi Sting32 I think this is the image you may have been referencing. It is a little inaccurate because it doesn't show the shift discs engaged in the correct positions, it just shows the drive sequence. You are correct - gears are always in constant mesh, it is the shift discs that are moving and creating the drive sequence. But from memory the 4 to 5th change all 3 disc are moving and need to relocate into the appropriate gears, hence the 'tougher' shift in the Gasser boxes in some gears and not others. Some changes only one or two discs are moving. It is a great gearbox design, just needs to be understood that you can't be hamfisted with it. Saying that a clunky change is understandable knowing the mechanics of it, but it shouldn't be 'grinding' - that sounds like big bits of metal are being turned into small bits of metal!
  5. Nuh sorry mate Australia. But just to give you a heads up you can get Gasser steels in 1.3mm, 1.4mm, 1.5mm, 1.6mm, 1.75mm and 2mm. You should be able to find a UK supplier if necessary.
  6. I've got 1.75mm ones in stock if that helps.
  7. I'd agree with Dabster, the stators (and the rest of the ignition system) are super reliable on these Gasser. I would be surprised if that was it.

    Only difference is graphics they are all Airoh TRR
  9. VIN says built December 2013, so it is a 2014 model. Engine numbers do not match frame numbers with GasGas Bikes.
  10. Yes as Lineaway said, check you are using MT280344001 which is the case gasket from 2003 onwards (hence the 3 in the part number) Not MT280244001 which was the 2002 gasket. (almost the same, but not quite). MT280344001 fits 2003 to 2020
  11. The easiest way is to us the centre bolt as the lever. Undo the centre bolt that holds the kicker onto the kick start shaft a couple of turns (and you will need to juggle the amount of turns out to get the correct amount of leverage), now fold the lever out towards the position you would kick start the bike. The knuckle part of the lever should now come in contact with the centre bolt head, as you keep folding the lever out, it will draw the kickstart knuckle along the shaft and off. Sometime it will need a small tap on the inside of the kick arm to help it break free. Done hundreds of bikes lie this in the workshop - works every time. Just juggle the amount of "out" on that bolt head to get the sweet spot.
  12. 2012 Gas Gas TXT 250cc, built in September 2011
  13. Also as Huski mentioned there is two very slightly different piston sizes. The kits look identical but there is a difference. AJP Master cylinder used on Gas Gas bikes up to 2012 used a 9.48mm piston, Gas Gas Part number BT280222220 Then with the introduction of the new AJP unit construction master cylinder the piston size slimmed to 9.38mm Gas Gas Part number BT280222220/2 And then again when Braktec took over the AJP construction it reverted to the earlier 9.48mm piston size. Very confusing! You can usually tell the smaller 9.38mm pistons as they are a raw aluminium finish. The bigger 9.48mm ones are coated and are usually a bronzy to brown finish.
