  1. Bunch of garbage!! full of excuses. Local government authorities imposing non sense restrictions and the govern body of the sport doing a ****ty job as usual. Trials has a lot to learn from MX and enduro industries, Yet, They think they know better.
  2. It's an excellent idea!! you will learn from it and from my experience you will end up going back to normal when you skill set start to demand independent modulation!!! I ve been in trials for 4 years now and one thing I discovered is: "If Tony Bou doesn't use, it must not be good!" that's how people think in this sport. There is absolute no innovation, as a matter of fact, within the trials community there is a real aversion to any new idea or bike modification. Ask Vertigo. lol all BS apart, let me share a personal experience. I installed what someone mentioned above (A Clake lever) in my 2018 300RR once and rode it for 5 months. Thanks to that device I was able to develop and understand rear brake control to a level that IMHO would take much longer without the device. during the time using a clake I quickly learned how to stationary zap and understood the combination brake and clutch to further assist me in techniques like hopping on rear wheel. Make no mistake, there are always down falls and regarding the clake, there was also a period of frustration until everything got dialed in correctly. resuming: You will learn something with it, and worse case scenario, it's reversible!! GO FOR IT
  3. tell Him I say Thank You!!
  4. hate to sound ignorant but how do I check float height?? thanks
  5. Got it!! The great Lineaway!!!! always coming through! Man, I wish I had that kind of Knowledge. just to be clear: Torx tool are for those special star like shape bolts for the top?? and what is exactly a OKO carb? I saw in the link was mentioned that those O-rings cant be replaced and you do take a chance going in. Can you clarify? Thank You so much
  6. If anyone can give me some starting points or guesses, It's well appreciated symptoms: Bike starts well, idles perfectly for a long time. when start riding, usually during low revs, it just bogs and dies almost like is out of gas. when try to start again, sometimes starts right up, other times starts and bogs immediately! if it doesnt bog, it will rev all the way up full throttle but as I bounce it and low rev, she bogs and stalls again! actions: I changed plug (nothing changed) , fuel is clean , the feeding hose to carb is not clogged, I took carb apart and sprayed but did not disassembled the jets. what else to check other than doing a better job ( full disassemble ) on carb? Thank you all in advance
  7. break lever neutral or upper position makes easier! always cover the brake is the best practice! you only move your foot off the break when you need to come really close to the bars during splats, zaps or very steep terrain and only while standing high. if you bend your knees and bring the weight back, foot immediately goes back over the brake. stick with arms and knees slightly flexed to start and rely on brake all the time! good luck
  8. Does anyone have a full carbon helmet and would be kind to measure the weight?? I m looking for the lightest full carbon Trials helmet for a patient of mine that just underwent neck surgery and is a newbie in trials!! any advice is greatly appreciated . In the bicycle world manufactures are very proud of their products and specs and weights are always listed. Obviously not in trials? Thanks all
  9. Does anybody know what coating is that?? I looked around and those colors can be achieved with 3 different techniques: TiNi, DLC and Laser coating. This winter I m gonna do some work on my bike and I would like some of those colorful forks!! I found a couple quotes so far : Laser coating for $300 both tubes or DLC for $195 I havent found Ti nitrate from any USA based company yet! What do you guys know about them shiny tubes?? LMK

    Brake pedal

    does anybody know of any shorter brake pedal that will fit the evo 2020? It seems that the jitsie race has a slightly larger tip and is angled to the rear a bit. if anyone has that I would like to see a pic. I need the rear brake a little bit closer. this is an issue I had with the montesa and ended up having a custom one made now I have a beta factory and is a bit too far forward again. definitely not as bad as montesa. I also could use a larger tip. Thanks
  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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
