  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I tried that before,and again just not bit still none the wiser? Are they the same as the towball bolts would be? Or are they different?
  4. Hi ive just got a Dave Cooper Bike rack, but forgot to ask what the torque wrench setting should be for the mount on the towbar? Anybody know?
  5. 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.
  6. Thats great but is there a well known way to check for a buyer wishing tocheck if its stolen before they buy?
  7. Thanks pjw123, can you message me the postcode for that event, or the website/ group its with?
  8. Thanks for that but I put my postcode and 25 mile radius in and it says clubs on the Isle of Man,Guernsey and Wales are all only 14 miles from me. So the search is pritty useless, is there another way to sort through the myriad of clubs there?
  9. Im looking for a trials bike, new to the sport, but ridden trails for a while now. Wondering if anyone can tell me about availability of parts for the different brands, or even different bikes? Or are there any that are hard to get parts for? Looking at modern bikes. Thanks in advance for all advice
  10. Looking to find out what brands or ccs affect trials bike Road insurance? Not got a bike yet, but will want to use on the road also so looking for info on how trials boke insurance price is affected?
  11. Im based near Barnard castle, near scotch corner. Looking for clubs locally, can anyone suggest whereto find lists, or inform me of them all please? Im new to trials so looking for one to guide me into it. Need to figure out the right bike etc. Thanks in advance.
  12. Hi can anyone tell me all the clubs around Barnard Castle and Bishop Auckland. especially any with practice grounds? kind regards chris wade
  13. 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?
  14. hi all, i am just looking for a specific answer please, maybe a link to another thread that describes the process, or a step by step guide? or is it something a dealers only ever does?
  15. Hi I have seen people talk about the kick start mod for this bike. can anyone tell me what this is, and photos, or the before and after if available please? i want to check if mine has had this done, and if not what i should be wary of?
  16. I have a beta rev 4t 2008, and i need to replace the front brake pistons. But i am struggeling to figure what caliper it is and where to find spare parts. I have tried beta-uk but they say its a g-something brand, but not sure of the model.
  17. Hi Im looking for front caliper piston fire a beta rev 4t 2008, But eBay can't find any. Where do you look for parts for trials bikes?
  18. also just found https://checkthatbike.co.uk/
  19. how can anyone find out if a motorcycle i want to buy is stolen? I have so far found only this to check vin numbers https://www.nicb.org/theft_and_fraud_awareness/vincheck anyone know of anything else?
  20. Thanks all for replies. Im now wondering what the weight difference is between 200 2 stroke and 300 4 stroke?
  21. Hi Im looking at a bike with knackered steering head bearings. I wondered how easy they are to replace beta 4t 300 2008 and why they would go in the first place, is it a sign of bad maintenance or a bike model defect?
  22. Hi Im looking to get trials bike and wondered if there is a perticular brand that's best for reliability and maintenance free? I'm thinking 4 stroke, so any opinions welcome. Anything I should know about beta 4t rev model I think?
  23. hi thanks for all the feedback. its not as easy for me to try them out as i depend on others letting me try theres, which i dont want to do as its there property. so can you tell me the differences between 2t and 4t in how the machine is best ridden? is it low revs for 4t and high for 2t, or is it more complicated than that?
  24. Hi Im looking to get a trials bike thinking 250 4 stroke, but not sure what's best for beginner to advance on. I do trail riding so have some experience
