  1. Look for the finnest mesh filter. Idle circuit have very small holes. The tap filter let some stuff pass by
  2. Spin fan blade with hand. It should spin free. Have seen one vertigo broking small frame tab and blocking fan movement Bypass thermostat connecting the two wires on thermostart. If fan spin. The thermostat is the one. Connect fan on 12v from a car battery. It should work Look for any fault connection going back the wires from fan untill magneto.
  3. Biggest chance to fix it: Change fluid. Check caliper piston returning (*) them with fingers. It should be hard but same effort on all four. * when returning brake calliper pistons for replacing pads or anything else, always clean pistons first. Or you will inject dirt into system. * cut a small chamfrer on new pads. The idea here is ease disc placement when reinstalling wheels. This way you will not need to return calliper pistons every time you deal with wheel maintenance.
  4. somehere in my shop I have the drawing for this part. You can ask someone with a lathe do make one for you. Send a PM tomorrow remembering me pls

    Future of Gasgas

    Sales will drop dramatically untill Gasgas give a new good real healty sign. Again During this time new and exiting products will be shown by competitors, shinking even more Gasgas market share. Then they will say that sales are under what they expected? What Gasgas need is a good marketing plan supporting the new return and a proactive communication people. Nobody can relly on unions information when your job depends on it.

    Future of Gasgas

    Read today (if I understood well) that they plan to stop the factory for 6 months...
  7. After 2 and a half months ridding every weekend, here my impressions: Good traction everywhere. Can't explain but not good on wheelies. Wear very fast Can't hold air even if overinflated.

    Future of Gasgas

    Big question: They will put Cabestany ridding electric bike only on these trialgp events or he will promote the bike from now? For me, this will show if they trust about electric bike beeing an viable option on next years or if it is just a fashion.

    Future of Gasgas

    Poor communication from factory let space for speculation
  10. Close the oppening of reed valve stoppers and/or retard the ignition. It can help a bit.
  11. Fuel filter with car injector filter
  12. Try using sealed bearings as they come. Poping out the seals can damage them. High pressure water is number one enemy of greased items. Keep them out axle area. Check spacer lenght. If they was smasched a bit. (For over tighten wheel nut) Bearings will be axial loaded.

    2019 raga forks

    Aluminium forks have smaller internal diameter. Maybe top riders feel some difference on flex and some kind of dampening since steel forks can flex more. At least on frames, not everybody love aluminium.

  15. look maxxis trialmaxx. They are good crossover tires.
  16. thanks for returning how situation ended. This is greath for knowlege base of this forum
  17. Solid ride for Dabil so far... Doug early day cost him a 5.
  18. Saw someone ridding 100km in an enduro without oil...
  19. Yes. You just need do unscrew shock bottom clevis (use heat to broke loctite and aluminium clamps to protect the shock stem) It good practice change rebound bolt o rings due heat you used Cut car bumper or buy new one from splat shop (gasgas bumper is sheaper than shercos)
  20. It is not easy... but with a 10mm hex spanner, you can force the coil and mount it. Just like Jim's tool
  21. Sherco+Scorpa 52. Honda+Montesa 44 But... Vertigo + Doug = 5 in a row?
  22. do not know how many they use from factory. On shocks I reassembled used the rule below: Meassure shock shaft lenght that goes inside shock body (estimated pu bumper half compressed) and increase a little (10mm)
  23. bottom cone not seated propelly??? This fork need a completly disasembly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOPho-XoVds
