    Charger repair

    Beware the charger on the 24 with the screw in end is very tight and as you discovered easy to separate into different parts. I’m guessing it’s a generic charger adapted to fit the oset battery pack a one piece plug would have prevented this. I used a tiny bit of grease to lubricate it and remove it after charging very carefully. If the orange charge light does not come on it’s likely either a faulty charger or the plug coming apart. Only other issue I had was occasionally if it would not start charging I had to change the on off switch position on battery pack then reconnect. Possibly something to do with all the battery monitoring built in. Can’t explain why but it happened and turning switch to on or off cured it

    Oset 20 r charging

    Can you try the charger on someone else’s bike, if it works it’s ok, or borrow a charger to test if that works on your bike. Had same issue with mine and the charger was goosed, needed a new one.

    Lower frame protection (the bit that gets hammered)

    DAB ones do protect the bottom a bit as they wrap round a bit

    Tubless tires on my TY 250 questions

    I’ve used Michelin on back of fantic and bsa c15 without any problems with tube and rimlock bolts, but I am aware others have problems keeping tyre on rim at low pressure so maybe down to individual rims. common best practice seems to be IRC tyre on rear for tubes, got one on now and it’s great

    Michelin tubeless tyres?

    Used it with tube on fantic and bsa C15 without any issues, just swapped to IRC tyre with tube when needed replacement and so far I like it on the fantic

    adults future of the sport ?

    Entry cost was never increased to subsidise kids or penalise those without .It was reduced here for youths for reasons above. All it means is the club covers the insurance and make no profit on youth entries. All our clubs welcome it and welcome new adults too. The kids conducted trials are run by parents so no hassle to the organisers and any training is open to anyone. As for training courses take a look at how popular Richmond’s trial school is. All run by parents and the clubs top riders who do it for the love of it. Suppose I could leave the kids at home to go sit on street corners or take them somewhere else and they’d lose my entry fee too.

    The reason for cheaper entries is clubs graciously helping out families. We all know the cost of buying and mainting a bike, then triple it with two kids riding. It makes a big difference to some people if kids only pay a fiver to ride. This covers the insurance. The future of trials is in riders whether they be 10 or 50. I would say keeping a supply of new observers is equally important to the future.

    Would send it back but second one was wrong one again, still for 2 stroke. 2yr later still waiting for reply Think it’s part of brexit negotiations

    Bought a beta side stand, they sent one for 2 stroke instead of 4 stroke (fits on opposite side) quick email and they sent replacement and have never asked for original back.

    C15 Inlet Manifold

    Which carb? Tufnol spacer available from amalcarb.co.uk or eBay. Possibly Villiers services. I used a 26mm one and made a difference to the pick up from idle. If by any chance that is what it’s for I droppped one size on cutaway on slide and that made big difference.
