    How Do You Add A Flywheel Weight 2008 300 Txt Pro

    Should the flywheel of the gasgas 300 txt pro be dry, ie I've just opened mine to find some rust spots, and no oil? But not checked behind the flywheel.

    How Do You Add A Flywheel Weight 2008 300 Txt Pro

    I have been told by a gasgas person, that the flywheel weights knacker the bairings, had anybody had issues like that? I've got a 300 txt pro 2009, but finding it a handful to ride, tried his txt, granted it's 2018 but was so much smoother. I wonder if I've got to big a bike? In new to the sport only done 2 trials.

    Txt pro 300 2009 front forks

    I have just brought this bike, and rode it at the weekend and the rebound adjuster screw disappeared down the fork. Ive taken the cap off and re-attached it, but found an alli spacer under the folk cap. And am wondering when this is for? Also I notice the cap isred round the outside and Ali in the middle it seems like it could be 2 bolts, is it? As mine both came off together by me undoing the middle Ali bolt. And the red seems to need a pin spanner anybody know what this is or what tool is needed? Thanks in advance.

    Beta Rev 4T 2008 Brakes Sticking On

    Hi all, i've just got a beta rev 4t 2008, and used it a few times, but when i use the brakes more than a few times in 30 mins, they tend to lock on, and we have to take the caliper off and push the pistons back in manually. they go in mostly easy, sometimes they just wont move, until we push in the right place, which i think is due to being slightly twisted. the pads are low but not gone, as they have about 2mm left on all round. anybody know of anything that it could be? I have wondered if i could just replace the piston and seals, but if the bore is badly scored then i will also need a new caliper, but i dont want to buy pistons if i need a new caliper anyway?
