    Cota 314R Choke

    If not carb (as above) Crank seal i'm afraid. Exactly what happened to me !
  2. I use Bearings at work, and believe me cheep bearings are exactly that and don't last ! I have tested them in electric motors, the cheep "Chinese bearings" last at least 10 times less running time than proper bearings (SKF etc,) Put some proper bearings in and I will guarantee they will last a lot longer.
  3. The sound of a big carp taking bread off the surface. on a hidden pond. Magical ! O and the sound of my hillclimb car, echoing off the side of Baitings dam ! Lovely.
  4. Nice tsiklonaut, Very smart , Where do you get these from ?????

    Frame Trim

    How do you keep the right hand side one on as mine keeps falling off (pushed off with clutch hose/cable) on right hand turns ???? Maybe i'm doing something wrong ???? But the little ears that sit behind the frame aren't strong enough for the hose/cable push and just comes off !
  6. Left hand side , top of frame, undo the isolation tape and you will see two unused Bullet connectors. These are the two you use. Have just put a duel map switch on my 2014 300, cant see it makes that much difference between maps?......but still getting used to the bike. Craig.
  7. Wow b40rt, I didn't know about this !....... How long has this been available ? Good shout, Thanks.
  8. My Beta TR 32 , bought new form Robinsons of Rochdale with my first proper job, and being 17 again !
  9. Hi all, I was the one who started the "Yes or No" Thread...........Well I have ! Managed to get myself a lovely 2014 300i , Hoping for a little help off you guys....? The question is,,,,,As i'm still at the learning stage I want to fit a lanyard ( i have on my 315r) As the ossa has a (hold down) cold start using the original kill switch how do I wire the lanyard in ? in conjunction with the standard kill switch ? The problem is, if I replace the original kill switch with the lanyard there will be nothing to push to activate the cold start ? ps. im useless on electrics. Any suggestions would help just incase I get over enthusiastic and drop the bike ! Thanks, Craig.
  10. As oni says above, my 315 wont start if i've left the exhaust bung in ? As done it a few times !
  11. Thanks for your input people, much appreciated and good for's and against's . I have access to a very good machine shop who specialise in manufacturing/repairing one off parts (breakdown) for the textile industry, so manufacturing/repairing obsolete parts for the ossa shouldn't be a problem and as mentioned other parts are generic to other makes. I thought that the new Vertigo was using the same EFI system as the one used on the ossa ? (maybe i'm wrong) ? So if the EFI not the same as the vertigo, this is the main worry as if it packs up its game over ! Thanks again for input lads, Craig.

    Yes Or No ?

    Hi All, I've always liked how the ossa TR280 rides after a brief ride on one last year , and have had my eye out for a good second hand one to purchase. But after whats happened and reading the posts on "Kokusan Denki No More" What are peoples genuine opinions on taking the plunge and buying one ? ie. For's.....You could probably get a good one now for reasonable money ? Against.....Getting it repaired (spares) problems ? Thanks For your opinions.......Craig.
  13. I would say some play somewhere ? in bearings (linkage or swing arm) as it looks like the swing arm is dropping more than it should causing it hit the shock. Just a thought bud.
  14. Hi Andy, Tell you something,,,,,,,,,If you like trials and keep it up, Your road riding will improve ! (Believe me as it does) and as said above its not as easy as it looks but keep going bud,don't give up Just enjoy learning and have fun,
  15. Wow Cheers Crazy,,,,, Great vids, Gives us beginners something to practice an think about ! Thanks again
  16. Looks all good to me, and think its a 2002 if it makes any difference. At that price I would get it as they are very good bikes.
  17. Cheers People, will sort, Regards, Craig.
  18. Hi all, I've trawled the posts but cant find an answer so hear goes....... Montesa 315r 2002 showa forks. (put putoline fork oil 4 in to soften it up a bit) Just serviced mine (oil,bushes,seals) I want to know the following for initial set up please ie, number of turns ?..... 1.....Lower leg valve ? 2.....Upper leg thumb screw (purple/blue in colour) ? 3.....Big allen key adjuster (pre-load) ? Its just a start off setting I require then will see how it goes. Also any tips on getting the forks really parallel with each other in the triple clamps ? Thanks in advance, Craig.
  19. Hi Just measured my old 35mm fork seals ( TLR 200 E) (not reflex) taken out last Saturday...... The seal size of mine are....... 35x48x11 So to answer your question you need a 48mm internal cir'clip. Just ask for a 48mm cir'clip (should be 1.75 thick) unsprung dia will be about 50.5 o/d. Craig.
  20. Well done people, as a beginner myself its a great help ! Its great watching good trials riders doing their stuff and saying "I could do that" ? But as all beginner's know its just not that easy ! As said it may become easy, but by God you have to put the practice in ! With help like this Im sure its the way to go. Craig.
