  1. Hi I have 2020 Vertical 250 . I have the Get system & have played about with adjustments, but can’t get that softness at initial throttle opening I would like. Slightly retarding ignition wld normally achieve this , like I did on previous bikes plus on my old 240 Fantic , on Vertigo this just produces engine braking!! I know on Gas Gas they fit low compression heads to smooth out bottom end & Beta lads have put extra base gasket on 300 s to do the same . So my ? Is , I think they do a low compression for 300 but not 250 ? Has anyone tried extra base or head gasket ? If u do base or head gasket ,is any re-programming needed ? Thanks
  2. Hi , I have 2020 Vertical 250 . Is it possible for me to have a manual please ? mpcritchlow@gmail.com.
  3. I also know of one lad in Midlands who has had his 2019 seize & he is not tough on bikes & been riding trials for 40 years . Guess I am a bit too careful & long in the tooth haha still remember first trials bike 33/1. Mix .
  4. When you are used to 75cc for 25 years , it’s hard to get your head around 30cc . I’ve used my measure for 4 years on my Vertigo , no issues .
  5. And no one has mentioned worse fault ! Jumping out of 2nd gear half way up a hill !! Scarey , but to be fair 172 could do the same .
  6. Got them on my Drayton , Dad has the on his Tiger Cub . Really pleased with them , like the fact you can adjust damping .
  7. Hi welcome to the site . Because it’s Fuel injected , there is no fuel tap to switch on or off . If you need any help Nick at Vertigo Motors Skipton is really helpfull , just ring & ask for him . Don’t get worried about fuel / oil mixture !, The recommended measure is 30cc oil to 5Litre Fuel !!!!! I personally run 40/45 cc .Don’t get tempted to use more than this ,as it can block injectors
  8. I have a Ohlins shock for a Gas Gas that’s not done much ! Big improvment over Sachs , but I am in England was thinking somewhere around £125
  9. Hi Murdo , are u still convinced the 300 is the bike to have against the 250 ? By the way is Practice open this weekend ? 8th Oct was thinking of coming over , be great if your around for a chat ?
  10. Thanks for the pics , very helpful , good idea to put slight bend on cable retaining arm , going to copy that .
  11. Thanks for replies , I can't even go back to standard set up , because it looks like the clutch arm it's self has been lengthened ! So when I put cable through original hole , it's at a strange angle , also not sure if cable is routed correctly ?

    240 Clutch

    Has anyone recommendations for lightening clutch on 240 Fantic ( not Hydrolhic ) remove 2 springs ? Best cable ? Levers ? Mine has a home made ext ( small piece of angled steel ) at clutch arm end . This was on bike when I got it , and it's never worked very well ! I believe Shed Works did a kit , but having phoned them , they no longer do them . Be good if anyone has pics of what they have done ? Or know where I can buy a kit from . I also have a 200 rear kick , that I have just aquired , having never rode the 200s before is it worthwhile going down the OKO carb bigger Airbox route , as on my 240 ? Also I believe there is a really simple clutch lightening mod ? Any pics anyone . Sorry I know this is a lot of ? But I need something to lure me into Garage on cold Winters nights . Thanks
  13. Fair comment , but Sherco is 2013 model & I fancy a new bike . They have another test day in Nov , might wait & go to that , not really in any mad rush to change bikes &'would rather wait than make a decision I could regret , 6k is a lot of money if your unsure .
  14. Went to the Bob McGregor Trials Ground yesterday , mainly to test the Vertigo , I also was interested to see what the facility was like . Got to say the Venue is brilliant , the people very friendly & helpful, from Murdo ( organiser) to the girls in cafe . Many thanks to Nick (Vertigo ) for the test ride , trouble is I went convinced I wanted the 300 ( I have a 300 Sherco ) but I thought the 250 was brilliant !! What is holding me off ordering the 250 , is all the other people who tested the 250 ( I spoke to 6 ) all own 2016 300s , and they preferred the 300 !! I rode Nicks 300 Ice Hell 2016 & Murdos Camo 300 2016 ( with flywheel weight ) ) & still Preferred the 2017 250 . Because the venue was bone dry , grip wasn't an issue , and that's were I am worried ? All the. Owners of the 300s commented on how fantastic the grip in wet conditions their bike had ( is the 250 as good , my only worry ) by the way the 300 riders varied from Novice to Expert 30 -58 in age . What to do ?
  15. Thanks to all for the info , I think it's around a hour & half away for me , so will ring to check it's going to be open before I come . I am working this Sat , so looking at the following Sat
