  1. Japan now cancelled due to covid, is this the end of the WTC ??
  2. Andy Huddlestin went on to be Britsh expert champion on a TYZ and was 4th in the ssdt one year. Chris Hannant chucked trials in his late teens , has rode a couple of times since and usually goes to watch the ssdt. Few of the other names Colin Crease, Adam Norris, Darren Snell I've seen in the results over the years but are not from North East England so can't help with their subsequent career
  3. The petrol tank on a beta is the top tube of the frame. How hard have you got to try to drive a 6mm bolt through an aluminium frame ? Sounds more like its been drilled
  4. French round now likely to be cancelled as its too expensive to run, it's on todotrial
  5. What mm is the std slave cylinder?
  6. Entitlement. Every rider on every type of bike wants a trial for them.
  7. The world trial at Cahors was an indoor in effect with 8 man made sections. We can criticise this but with riding in streams banned in many countries it sadly may be the future. Once you get local authorities involved environmental issues will be more of an obstacle. Local trials are under the radar but once you need Local Authority permission for traffic and spectators it gets more difficult.
  8. Trials riders know the value of a penny never mind a pound. Tong wasn't the best location by any stretch. For me it needs to go back to a venue like Pately Bridge , Bainbridge or Morlais Quarry. What about Back Cowm ? I'd really like to see a world round that was different to the others, some mud would be good.
  9. I've asked this before but how much pressure should be applied when measuring the thickness of the clutch plates ? Should they be measured whilst clamped in the hub ? Applying force to a vernier can make quite a difference, more than the tolerance above.
  10. It's a whole world of comfort better than any modern bike
  11. The lack of a speedo, horn and legal plate don't do us any favours. Trials for years have gone down the minimalist route. But go and look at some pics of Michaud on the 301 prototype fantic in 85. Even in the world rounds he had a speedo fitted as did the others. He will have cleaned sections most of us still can't do so not much of a handicap. Go back to world round bikes require speedo , horn and side stand. Number plate is more difficult, if you had one fitted to your rucksack a lenient Bobby may let you off ?
  12. Road speeds, older bikes were much faster. 349 monts were quick but I would bet a jumbo swm was faster. My air cooled yamaha mono would do 60mph, indicated by the bikes speedo with the choke on at the ssdt and that was std gearing. The year before I had a 303 fantic which I had geared up and I would pass yamahas easily. Power delivery is different and gearing is much lower on modern bikes. My TRS does about 35!

    Beta should update the clutch to a diaphragm system, Bosi already make one I think ? Tech forks or better shock ? Not much else to change really
  14. @flooky did jb plastic weld work ?
