  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...
  16. Does anyone have the top end big bore with 11 cc (299) ? Can I have feedback on the product? I m considering to put one in my 300rr. Would that put any harm on the bike? Note: it also has a titanium pipe. Thanks
  17. Any after market shorter levers for rear brake? Specifically 2018 4RT Thanks
  18. it proves the same point of having the beta 80 against your GG300, or should I say Nothing!!! the fact I was trying to figure why I think the 300rr has more power than my old Sherco 300sft is due to my very personal experience described in the thread!! and I am clueless. No mechanic experience whatsoever. however, I told you guys where the flywheel idea came from (from my friend -drifter) and it all make sense until debunked by a bunch of people here... enjoy the GasGas.
  19. sorry for all the trouble caused!! I bought the 300RR and was going to keep the sheco factory 300 to have a 2 stroke and 4 stroke simultaneously. I ride a man made track and am not an expert but I m capable of basic techniques such zaps and splatters. it didn't take 1 month before I decided to get rid of the Sherco! Why? I took both bikes to track few times and made sure to ride them back to back in the same obstacle... sometimes i had both running at the same time and one bike would idle while I did 5 zaps or splatters with the other one and kept taking turns... my biggest obstacles in which I m comfortable for my skills is a 4feet 1inch high straight wooden wire spool and a 4 feet skidder tire buried half way which I aproack from the side (flat and undercut). want to know the only reason I sold the Sherco?? I can get more lift, more height and more control on the 300 RR... It literally puzzles me when I hear that the bike is gutless and power delivery is not smooth! what am I missing?? how can you blame on technique and skill when I m riding them back to back? same rider! to be fully honest the Sherco had an advantage cuz is the one I was ridding the longest... So, the list of advantages of the 4 stroke (personally to me) go on and on... but the straw that broke the camel's back: "engine Brake" after I started to get use to it, the 2 stroke served no purpose and I m heading for a pair of Montesas in 2019. I m not sure If I will build my own eventually or buy something already built. having 2 bikes is a must for me. always ready to go... if you riding and something breaks, the day is not over yet! Thanks everyone for the input
  20. why don't You and I just park the bike side by side , put in neutral and hold the throttle wide open to see what bike quits first??? #%^$&^* I m not the smartest and most knowledgeable in Trials but my point has some sort of validity. I don't think it should be taken as a joke. It all started from a friend of mine that is a professional drifter and he was explaining why drifters put lighter fly wheels on their rides. When they enter a turn they "kick the clutch" to increase the RPMs so they can start drifting by spinning and loosing traction. the reason for a lighter Fly wheel in that case (acording to him) is to allow a fast pick up in RPM since you can only kick that clutch for a split sec... in trials we have plenty of time to raise RPMs ( in which point the Torque is gone for both 2 and 4 strokes) so adding weight to the fly wheel would technically have the reverse effect. your engine will take longer to reach the high RPM but when you dump the clutch, inertia of rotation should favor the initial "punch". from there on, I cant really testify but if Physics still works correctly, please en-light me what I am missing. if the Beta 80 could accelerate a 10kg fly wheel fast enough, all I can say is that the beta front wheel would leave the ground before your gg300. after that, of course that engine cant carry on the rotation... just saying... my original question is all about a "Splatter" and the "punch" the split sec when goes from disengaged to engaged. Enjoy the GG300. when starts is a great bike LMAO
  21. Seems that you just backed up my point on number 2! Bazinga!
  22. I have to completely agree and disagree with you. The heavier fly wheel can not generate torque indeed! torque is only generated by the engine.. The heavier flywheel will do is have more inertia. and that inertia means punch power when you let your clutch out with a full Throtle that has been wide open for 1.5 full second. imagine that: put your bike on a stand with the rear in the air in 3rd gear and clutch on wide open so the wheel will spin as fast as you can then suddenly press the clutch and jam the rear brake! that's replicating what happens in the flywheel/clutch. Then do the same experiment but this time pack the rear rim with some lead weight distributed evenly. when you jam that brake, you better be holding the bike!!!
  23. My original question was confusing. Is it about the power that the engine can generate or the inertia of flywheel and efficiency of clutch. Obviously I m talking about splatters, where all of us hold it wide open and just clutch on to launch... I swear the 4RT punch is higher than 2T. I mean, on my bikes was so obvious... that’s why I don’t get it... where is this disparity in power?
  24. That’s what I think!! In the USA everyone seems to believe that this bike has no guts. I think it has much more than my previous bike: a 2018 300sherco factory.
  25. It doesn’t. But it’s know that more torque will come from more inertia. So, whichever bike can generate such with have a bigger punch correct? When you go for a splatter and accelerate the fly wheel clutch fully Off and then pop it, more inertia = more launch! Correct?
