    OLD FUEL

    IMO theres no need for it. If your bike is knocking its most likely due to bad carburettion. If you really want higher octane just buy an octane booster
  2. Why are you needing to change the headstock bearings on a 2 year old bike?! Would be very surprised if you need to replace the outer races
  3. The clubs i ride start the experts riders last (up to 45 mins behind the first rider), so when we are half way round the first lap we start getting lapped by the people who have started first who feel like its some sort of race. IMO we should be allowed to go ahead of them since they enjoyed a first lap of no queues, yet if you do this some get really annoyed. I would never jump someone on the same lap as myself

    2 stroke oil

    Personally id use any oil other than rock oil
  5. Fair enough. If you like blasting up hills at Cowm then a 300 would probably suit you best. Im biased towards GG, but id say use your judgement on condition, theres not much to choose between them all.
  6. They look mostly 300s... 300s can be too much for clubmen in a tight trial setting, but if you're just going to use it to beat about then it will probably be ok. Id stay away from the 2013 sherco, most didnt run the best back in the day with the pump carb.
  7. I see a hose connected to the bottom and one at the top. Surely the water exits the head and returns to the top of the radiator
  8. Don't know how a vertigos cooling system works (though i have seen the nitro returns to a more conventional setup), but flow with a pump is far greater than any flow due to a temperature gradient, so no need to accomodate the latter. Do they take the feed from the bottom of the rad and return to the top, or return to the bottom like a GG?
  9. His website no longer works, best to contact him on FB, richard allen. I think i read somewhere of someone putting rev3 yokes into a techno, but don't quote me. Obviously yokes from an upside down fork rev3 won't fit. I think most yokes will be compatible with the headstock so long as the fork diameter is the same. Im not that clued up on beta im afraid lol. I think you have 38mm paiolis Check out this link here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324745616299?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200818142055%26meid%3Da463f2777b9c4b2cb1a4713ad21d21b3%26pid%3D101113%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D255293703731%26itm%3D324745616299%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2563228%26algv%3DDefaultOrganicWeb%26brand%3DSherco&_trksid=p2563228.c101113.m2108
  10. Jetting and needle are standard for the dellorto, but as you say the needle is usually in the middle position
  11. Advancing the timing would give you the characteristics you are after. Ive done it before on shercos and sy scorpas. No idea what the ignition is like on a vertigo however
  12. Still a true trials bike. AFAIK the only difference is the seat, tank, cheaper forks and rear shock, and dellorto carb. The main parts, frame and engine will be the same as the proper trials bike
  13. Be careful about sizing, gaerne call an 8 a 42, and a 9 a 43, while alpinestars call an 8 a 43, and a 9 a 44.5
  14. I wore a 45 in my gaernes, now a 44.5 in my tech Ts with a slightly snugger fit, so id say they are pretty much identical size wise
  15. Your off the shelf, money is no object, option is REH. https://www.rehforks.com/trials-forks Have ridden a bike with them in it and personally didnt think them anything super special, but better than originals i guess
