  1. Who has and what did you get? Links? I understand that you can use plastic screws in an attempted to save rear fender right!!! I m A bit nervous. I break a rear fender almost every month religiously. Just got my first beta coming from a 300rr. I use to have $20 rear fenders and now i guess they will be $150. What tricks are out there to prevent damage?
  2. Who buys standard bikes instead factory and why? Other than money. Cant get my hands on a factory 300 2t right now in the USA. Should I just go standard or is worth the wait. Apparently they will be available end of June. Also if anyone really knows the difference of the two ... Can you just buy after market parts and make the standard a "factory" other than color?
  3. No one mention the Showa so far?? Why? They all can be adjusted to your abilities. Increase the sag and have a soft rear end. Its very unlikely that any of us lower level riders can outperform any of the shocks that come stock
  4. its also a 4stroke fest! Go Japs
  5. I wish we could make a donation fund and send this lad to cover the trial GP!! way to go Sumimitumaru. the FIM and trial GP can kiss my ass... they dont want to let us watch it
  6. excuses a part, He is just tired of kicking ass... let Casales do it this year!??
  7. kid is good but he needs to diversify! young riders gotta build their support, Instagram videos, self promotion and etc... I follow him in few different platforms and the kid never posts anything... if you not influencing, why should the manufacture invest?
  8. Clake works great and will teach you a lot about your timing specially for stationary zaps and rear wheel hops! definitely is not a solution and you will have to develop a rear break skills for your foot in the future but i seriously advise any beginner intermediate rider to try the clake. it teaches you not to clutch more then necessary (a pro rider skill). after using the clake for few weeks, you will find a lot easier to hold pressure and clutch it just until you hold the bike steady.... I try everything available on the market, sometimes feels weird but in the end always teaches you something good luck
  9. try to brake the move in 3 steps and practice each of the separate. (for Zap) first of all, they are 3 different techniques: roll up, double blip and jap zap! one burst of throttle, two distinctive bursts of throttle and two bursts of throttle with pop of clutch respectively! for the ladder, you can break in steps to learn how to get lift. the steps are: stiffing front wheel and compressing the suspension, de weighing pegs with front wheel planted and popping the clutch at last! this worked really well for me and I know can japzap a 3.5-4 feet tall undercut obstacle comfortably. As it been said before: Practice , practice, practice, take a break and practice again! good luck
  10. How do you about breathing the CO? does it ventilate well?? I remember seeing people using bandanas on their face ! Wish was closer so I could participate but I m at the Quebec border
  11. What is the difference in the top end of the new 301 vs the big bore kit (S3) for the 300rr? The bigbore brings it to aprox 299cc. Isnt it what the 301 measures? On a thread i started while ago I was contemplating the big bore and i had mention I was curious about the new edition!! Turns out the 301 is pretty much the 300 with a big bore and some adjustments in the valve that controls the engine brake in the lower end (correct me if I m mistaking please). Updates: Got the programable Throttle body from factory on 2018 RR so I just purchased hardware and softwares for re-mapping! Termignoni exhaust and header are next! Big bore is on its way via mail! If you re about to say that I dont need power, that these upgrades are useless without the skill and such, just save your comment! It's winter here, and if I cant ride, I m putting time working to improve the bike. Also been thinking of a heavier spring for my rear Showa. Anyone has done that?? What's the feedback? Thanks all
  12. There is a solution for you if you struggle with rear brake modulation! its a clake pro lever which will combine rear brake and clutch in one single lever. everyone will say bad things about but believe me: The trials community is just very close minded! if no pro rider uses, it must suck, right??? I used for while to develop rear brake timing and was amazing. when tuned correctly will allow you to understand better the use of rear brake ( a must have skill). you can see it in use in my instagram and fb @leoslg and trials vlogger
  13. How about TRS for Dibs?? have you ever thought about? would be a great move for the factory. he is a very popular lad and TRS is growing fast... btw he just re-posted a pic of Raga in his intagram (hint) That would be awesome
  14. So far we have: Fajardo to Sherco, Casales ? The Gelabert brothers both to Vertigo! Is that it for rider swap for the indoor season? If so Vertigo scored big. Seems they believe in youngters and they have a beautiful trio of talented riders! Sherco? Well Fajardo will prob ride less efficient than the Gas gas IMHO. Beta is quite crowded! Bincaz, Martin, Dabil... They all new aquisitiona as well. Prob no changes for this season. Where will Cadales go other than Gas Gas??
  15. As far as I understand from the product description is just a top end swap. No bore needed! from 288 to 299 cc I did get the white tube while ago and that did make a big diference! I was told by several people that the titanium exhaust and head is the most useful power upgrade you can do on the production 4RT. If I put the titanium pipe, big bore kit and programmed throttle body, I will prob have a pretty sweet 4RT that costed me double of a 2 stroke in the end! lol But nothing like riding the Honda, Its just a great machine, even with all the disadvantages when compared to 2 stroke. Does anyone have a ball park on the programmable throttle body?? The exhaust and head go for around $1100 in the USA and the Big Bore kit goes for roughly $800. at this point I m also wishing that this new 301RR that will come out in October will have some of this features, but even with my very very limited knowledge in the trials Industry, It's still "wishful think" . We will prob get a New color and sticker designs...
