  1. ring gummed, if it going away quickly something is expanding with heat. I would only worry about it if it didn't subside. There's nothing in there on a two stroke motor other than piston and rings .I wouldn't worry about it just run it.
  2. three kicks from cold first kick every time when hot. !/4 to half throttle and engage kick at top of stroke, don't shut the throttle as you kick roll it off as it fires. It needs to see fuel to fire hence throttle, you'll get the feel for it.
  3. Vertigo are very reliable now, not like the first models, however if you choose a factory beta you will probably pick the best all rounder out there. Lots of comments about the steep rake on a beta but i've ridden every bike there is and I still say the beta is the easiest to ride bar none.
  4. Thanks for the info Peter. To answer your questions, the fuel cap hole is clear and yes I bought the bike new about two months ago and yes it ran fine. I have spoken to vertigo for advice on this and they informed me dirt in the throttle body can cause a rise to revs and that if I have access to a tuning box I can enrich the mixture as I see fit. They also said that the bike runs slightly lean as normal due to the nature of the FI as I understand it. I intend to alter the mixture at some point in the future to see how effective that is.
  5. I get the logic of what you say, I don't think its anything like that the bike is still fresh.
  6. Yeah I think it does. It does it on the wet map and I believe the dry map is leaner so it is a definite problem. It may well be an idiosyncrasy of fuel injection so may need to get used to avoiding letting the engine get loaded to that extent, like what riding a 125 must be like if that makes sense.
  7. That's a possibility, using the recommended 30ml per 5 lts/
  8. I don't but I know some owners that have and said I could use it if needed. TBH I fully intended to leave as it comes from the factory but it definitelt sounds lean off the bottom when under load.
  9. Not long purchased my 2020 vertical 250 and noticed it does not like pull from very low revs as the engine seems to bog down and rattle like its got a lean ping. anything above that its clean as a whistle right up to full throttle. Do I need to get access to a tuning box and enrich the mixture of the bottom to eliminate this? Another thing I have noticed is the tick over has gone up of late,, it now idles much higher than it did previously but I haven't changed anything. Can I just turn the tickover down at the screw on the throttle body? Many thanks in advance for any advice.

    I found the new A/S Tech boots are smaller fit than the previous model, definitely tighter size wise.
  11. Three kicks to start from cold is normal. Engage the kickstart with the throttle closed and prime it with a soft push through the stroke, second kick engage top of stroke again and push through with some throttle on. It will go on the third kick with a swift kick from the top and approx. quarter throttle kept on as you kick through, it needs throttle to start don't roll it off.
  12. I have both and would say the gaerne is the better boot.

    Tech forks

    19 factory beta had very good forks, had this discussion already several times. Beta suspension is really good, if you're a top rider you may feel the need for a different shock but I thought the forks were brilliant.

    It is unfortunate that you have both had those problems. It's hard to envisage because I have run a 19 Gold for seven months and the bike is near perfect, had two separate Allen screws loosen slightly in all that time not another single issue. Very well designed and built, performs brilliantly.
