  1. The bike leaked out all it's oil in transit - that's an EM issue. EM has said "no" to updating/etc their 2021 bikes to have features that are available on their 2022 bikes. As for the kickstand, it's the same part as the Sherco/Scorpa bits... And build quality - the suspension bolts on the EM linkage are some cheap off the shelf hardware. And none of this is the fault of CPD. I thought about it and felt like crap because I vented, without thinking, and without putting myself in the shoes of those who are doing their best with what they've got. It was a dumbass foot in mouth move on my part. EM - great idea, but I think they need to step their game up in execution. I really want their product (electric trials) to be world class, or at least, more manufacturers to challenge this space. Why? Well, I don't live in the rural setting, and I want to practice in my yard, without my neighbors noticing. To do that, the bike has to be quiet/electric... and if it's going to be electric, it's got to be as good as, or better than, the gas offerings out there. Also, this isn't EM's 1st Generation. I've been waiting for them to get it right. I rode a "test model" a couple years back, and somehow, that one is better than the production one. I don't know how... it just is.
  2. I'm ashamed and sorry for my snarky comments. I have no idea what it takes to import/manage/run a business based on motorsports. It sure doesn't help having customers like me. I apologize, and I should have behaved better.
  3. Ya, no idea. It's rough with the electric motor as there's no "carryover" with the motor going up and over things. On mine it's almost like it has braking built in even though I don't have the FRB switch. The motor really doesn't freewheel.
  4. I'm frustrated, and incorrectly vented on CPD. They're not the target, it's EM. I see their product (EM that is) as 95% complete, and I asked EM 2 years ago about an "idle" function and they said it's not possible. Yet here they are offering Tickover on 2022 models. Irritating not to have a retrofit especially from a computer based controller. And that's not CPD's fault it's EM. My apologies to CPD and Mark Berg. I surely do not understand the challenges of being an importer.
  5. I'm a dick. CPD is doing the best they can, with what EM makes.
  6. I took the pivot bolt out of the kickstand, and then drilled a new hole for the pivot bolt just a little further down the kickstand, then I ground the old hole and kickstand end to be "round" with a flap wheel. Took a while, but made a huge difference. Sorry, didn't take photos..
  7. What I want to know is: 1 - can I retrofit Tickover on my 2021 Race? Why not? 2 - Where to get the FRB button?
  8. Hey Hector, look in this parts book (2017 250s... all the clutches are the same)... http://www.vertigomotors.com/archivos/downloads/parts_book_combat_camo_works_250cc_2017.pdf Anyhow, are you saying the plastic pins that's Number 12 on page 17? When you are putting it back together, you'll have to rock the kickstart shaft back and forth, unless you didn't get the gears clocked in right. Can you take a couple of pictures?
  9. Hey there ya’ll, I have a friend with a 2016 300RR that will only go in 1st or Neutral, but no higher. Any ideas?

    Hey Gaz, 130:1 is the ratio. You were running a bit more oil than that... Put in a new spark plug (BPMR6A NGK). Then, run the bike at idle for a minute or so, but get on it and ride gently to warm it up. When the fan comes on, then get into 3rd or 4th gear, and open it up a bit... Idling doesn’t generate much heat/pressure in the cylinder... makes the oil kind of bog up the works... The real trick for longevity is to keep idle time to a minimum....
  11. It's a good tip - how many O-rings or at least how thick of ones did you use? There's quite a gap between those spacers and the "triangle".
  12. I did figure out a way to make starting easier. Put your kickstarter under the ball of your foot, not the arch. What happens is, when you kick, and it’s the arch of your foot, when your heel lands on the foot peg... your kick starter is not all the way through the stroke. However, when the kickstarter is under the ball of your foot... and your heel hits the foot peg... the kickstarter is an inch or two further in the stroke. Try it, see if it helps you.
  13. Oooo.. you doubled them up against the Lip Seals in the “triangle” eh?
  14. Did you put o-rings where I have thee red marks? Or somewhere else? What size/diameter?
