    2018 RR

    What transmission oil do you use in you bike? we cannot get the Nils oil that comes in the bike from the factory here in the states.i put the Maxima light oil in it after break in. the bike seems very unsettled now, I'm a club man rider so our sections are basically very tight turns with some minor obstacles always just above idle. clutch is very jumpy with this oil. what do recommend I try? i would appreciate any advice.

    Thanks guys. You have no idea how many people I’ve asked.

    Hose clamps

    What are the hose clamps on 2018 RR called. The type name. Where do I get the tool to remove them. 🧐🙂

    2018 TRS RR.

    Does anyone out there have information regarding the changes to the 2018 TRS Raga from the 2017 bikes? Trying to make a decision on whether to wait for the 18 or buy the discounted 17. All opinions and comments welcomed and appreciated...✊️

    Slow throttle vs fast

    Simple question. How much faster is the fast throttle? What are the advantages and disadvantages of slow and fast. I'm riding a montesa 260 4rt. Ordered a fast domino to try out so I'll find out on my own soon enough but would appreciate some feedback and opinions on this subject.✊️

    What fuel are people using in their bikes? Manufacturer wants 98 octane unleaded which is not available at the pumps in the US. Am I going to ethanol free race fuel at $15/gal? What are you guys doing?
  11. medeiros494


    Thanks. Did the research. 93 pump gas it is. think Sunoco has a 94. Ethanol is the big issue. I try to ride at least a week and the bike are stored inside my shop which is heated and air conditioned. I'll run the bowl dry after riding. Should be fine. 1/2 VP Isn't that expensive. Makes 10 gallons of reduced ethanol fuel.I think our fuel is 6% ethanol here. Lots of riding with that.

    Maybe VP C-14 50/50 with pump gas? Is it even that critical?

    Slow throttle vs fast

    The 300 does. The 2015 260 does not. Came with a seat though! 😂

    2018 TRS RR.

    Thanks PJC. We climb on rocks, ride in streams and climb slick muddy slopes while pretty much wearing yoga pants! Tell me about being rational again!🤔. I'm really hoping they change the color...🤣👍🏼

    315r to 4rt ?

    I'll do my best to compare and share. 👍
  17. I love it! Wobbler it is 🤣
  18. Is Wobbler a word for a bad trials rider or any trials rider?!

    Best looking bike ever! The Repsol, in my opinion, is great looking as well. The TRS color scheme is butt ugly. That being said, I just laid down my money on an RR. So not not a deal breaker for me. I do wish the color selection was more inspired.

    Transmission oil change

    The spring and ball are for the shift detent. Not a drain.

    Transmission Oil For 4rt

    The bike holds what, 570ml of fluid. One liter pretty much gets you two changes a season and it provides you with a clutch that operates correctly. Super smooth. There is no substitute.. bite the bullet.🙂✊️

    315r to 4rt ?

    Jrsunt- It would be a big help to people that are new to this bike if you could be more specific about what it will and will not do? It's my first trials bike in thirty five years so I really have no baseline about its strengths or weaknesses.. other than the weight of course.. ordered a 2018 TRS RR this past weekend. Going to try that out. Keeping the montesa for my son.
  23. Berwick was a great event. Had a blast!😎
  24. Hello All, I'm relatively new to this sport so I'll be busy reading for a while. I'm 57 years old and grew up in RHode Island. Relocated to NJ where I married a Jersey girl and had a couple of great kids. I've got back into trials after a 38 year absence. Riding the New England Trials Association series in the C novice class. I believe it's time to move up to senior B as I am scoring most events in the single digits. I'll be posting with questions about that. I'm in this for the fun it. Not really concerned with awards or recognition of any kind. Just love the time on the bike with friends and being in the woods. Hope to see you all out there!👍🏼✊️
