  1. Apologies for resurrecting a post from 2013 but I’ve just took my cota apart, split the cases leaving the cluster in ignition side but managed to disturb the pins. I’ve got the Clymer manual but all the sizes are different I.e longer. Anyone else had this? Mine are approximately 21mm 24mm and 28mm. it’s a 1972 Cota 247 21m8*** engine number any advice on order of assembly please
  2. All sorted, drilled and tapped some threads in the existing bolts
  3. Thanks Reggie Spent ages looking for that!
  4. Just got hold of a secondhand long range tank and seat kit for my Beta Rev3 250 (2008), looks like it was removed from a bike and been sold separately as it had the brackets but not the bolt kit. Does anyone know where I can get an upper shock bolt and airbox bolt that has been drilled and tapped to receive the screws that hold the seat on? Ideally a part number for the filing kit etc. Obviously my other option is to get them drilled and tapped on a lathe (can't imagine drilling and tapping with shed tools will work). Thanks
  5. Hi I used Made In Metal motorcycles to make mine
  6. This is the eBay item number 322197427943 and hopefully this link http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bosi-Offroad-Flexible-Rear-Mudguard-Kit-Beta-Evo-2013-2016-Three-Colours-/322197427943?epid=5004522978&hash=item4b047696e7:g:5NUAAOSwZVlXjexL
  7. I think it's my link, I'm on a campsite using an phone do anything is possible! Try a search under world wide on eBay for beta Evo mudguard. Or go to www.johnleemotorcycles.co.uk
  8. They are UK eBay? Maybe they'll ship to the USA? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/322197427943 Or www.johnleemotorcycles.co.uk
  9. I'm a novice and got back into trials a year ago on an old Cota 247, made dreadful progress learning new skills (spent more time tinkering with it). I'm now using a 2008 Beta Rev3 250 with a slow throttle and it's absolutely ace, great power, handles well and confidence inspiring.
  10. I started with a Cota 247 which has been retired for now and I'm learning again with a Beta rev3 250. I changed the throttle to a slow action one and it's been great to learn on
  11. Fraser i can thoroughly recommend the Penkridge club, its very beginner friendly. The white routes are great for practice and the 50/50 is a good challenge to us wobblers!
  12. A bit of update, I spent a few months getting the 1972 Montesa Cota 247 running and did a few white route club trials and practices. Big and heavy but great when running well. Now needs a bottom end rebuild and cosmetics for the rest of the bike, so I breathed and bought a Beta Rev3 250, it's a 2008 model. Obviously the difference in bikes is amazing and my riding has improved a bit! Thanks all for the advice and to Oni Nou who suggested a Beta
  13. What I like is the cash refund they put in the parcel if the online p&p was too high. They put a few pound coins in with parts
