    2008 Rev 3 Mods

    I have a genuine 2008 Rev 3 but would like to try some mods to improve it. Any ideas please
  3. Bought an Airoh Tr from MRS r. Fits well, but chin strap too short. Adjusted it to maximum as well. Dissapointed as it is a lovely helmet and I have missed the returns date
  4. Uphill and slippy muddy entrance to section. Tried starting off in 3rd with weight over back. Could not even get into section. Same if I sat down and padded. could not get initial grip to start off. Any advice appreciated.

    I have a corroded casing on my 2008 rev3 and water is entering gearbox.. Not sure if casing is aluminium or magnesium. Has anybody had success using Araldite or any other sealer to fill the corroded casing?
  7. That's interesting, I have been trying to find a way of fixing a drinks bottle to a rev 3 . Will try this unless any other ideas are forthcoming. Cannot use cut inner tube fixed over centre of h'bars as stop button would not be accessable

    Front Brake

    The front brake on my 2008 Rev 3 grabs at low speed and locks wheel. Any ideas on a fix?
  11. I am being a bit thick here but how does the wd40 get past the flywheel or are there holes in it. I own a rev 3 which has a flywheel weight over the flywheel so cannot get to windings
  12. Do you take the flywheel off before spraying Windings etc?

    Black Goo

    After a trial I have black goo dripping out of the joint between the middle and end piece of exhaust. any ideas why and should I clean out centre section. if so, how
  18. I repeat. how can an observer watch more than one rider in a section?
  19. With due respect dadof2 i understand Trials marking but question the accuracy of even 2 observers trying to watch 2 or more riders each. I am sure there is a satisfactory method in place, but i am too thick to see it yet.
  20. Can someone explain the marking system on the Scott. I have watched videos and noticed several riders in a section at the same time. Are the sections not walked thhrough first and are there more than one observer at each section ie one observer/rider in the section. I am puzzled as to what happens.
  21. Any news on the Cheltenham Spa Scrambles Club? They have not run a Trial for ages.
  22. Where can I buy a small drinks bottle and where would it fit on a Beta Rev 3
