  1. Really thats great news dude......I will get some new oil in it walk off the lump I gave myself and get back on her.
  2. @ Breagh - I love scotland and all its beauty but boy Spain or should I say Catalonia, we live in a small village just outside Barcelona, is a bikers paradise. I ride all year round, road and off road, I have a 30m ride from my shed to the start of a dirt track that leads me into the wilds of the catalan countryside.....we have ridden the enduros from my shed to the french pyrenees border, a 8 hour+ ride on almost pure dirt tracks and trials. The roads, man the roads if you are a biker of the tarmac variety then you cant go wrong, hardly any cops, no cameras, views to die for and almost perfect trarmac..........only flip side ***** spanish drivers. Anyhow if you turn up in sunny spain give us a bell and I will be glad to show you about my neck of the woods. Visca Catalunya...........thats what we say here....:-o Dom
  3. Hi guys I wander if anyone can help or shed some light onto where I should be looking. I recently got my first trial bike a nice 2003 Beta rev 3.....all seems grand but I took it out for her and my first ride today and I noticed that when you put her in gear and ride there is a strange whining/whirring/whistling noise from the front of the bike. Now I have no clue about this bike but have had a few 2 strokes and never heard this type of noise before and am worried about it. So I cut short my ride (i must say the bike behaved very well power delivery, clutch and all that it just whined when moving in gear) and headed back to my shed to check the liquids. I drained the transmission oil to check for water and no it seemed fine - ah one other question what transmission oil do i put in her¿?. I checked the refrigeration liquid and it seemed fine no oil there...............so no oil in the water and visa versa. I am now worried I have bought a donkey can anyone advise me please.. Dom
  4. Hi guys I just aquired a beta Rev3 2003 model and have never ridden a trials bike in my life....I have ridden road and enduro bikes though and now almost at the ripe old age of 45 I was looking for a slower more technical type of riding. Well trials seemed to be the answer and a friend of a friend had an old bike for sale so I thought I would dive in the deep end. First day out today just a 2 hour play and I fell just the once (hard though and have a nice lump on my right leg) and by the end was taking the bike up trials without thinking about the inclination where I would have been in two minds on the enduro. Overall a great intro to the sport but that lump on my leg hurts. Dom..........
