    Vertical R 2020

    Yeah, especially looking from the right side.

    Vertical R 2020

    These are exactly my thoughts about the new R2. I wanted to buy one and waited with impatience, but this graphical design is definitively a "nogo".

    Such a beautiful graphical design! I would immediately buy one, if they were still available.

    They posted another photograph. Black fork bridges and stanchion tubes in combination with a grey frame. -> Link

    Future of Gasgas

    From a technical perspective: Why a new design? Canario
  8. I absolutely agree, that the stock bikes are already on a top level. Further assuming it is 98% up to the driver whether or not he can make the 2.50 meter step, we are talking about the last 2%, which can make the difference. In this regard I think about the usual measures for the two-stroke engine: Modifying the intake diaphragm Timing (inlet/outlet) Treatment of overflow channels and outlet Machining of crankshaft and piston Fine adjustment of the exhaust (cone) Extensive testing and fine tuning "Easy" to do for the top teams, difficult for small teams.

  9. I use GRO Gear Extrem 75W. Working great. Canario
  10. I use Castrol Power 1 Racing 2T (1:100). Canario
  11. Give me Bous bike and I am the new world champion 2020. 😂 Canario
  12. Vertigo has fuel injection and a central tank. From what I have seen in regard to engine and gearbox, a TRS is a GasGas with better build quality. But do you see a technical progress from 2015 to today? Canario
  13. Looking back on to the designs of most manufacturers (TRS, Beta, GasGas) over the past years, I do not see so much progress at all. The technique of most components is decades old, but with some tuning you can get out some additional percentage points. But these modifications are difficult to realize by small teams. The biggest progress came from Vertigo and they did this "from scratch". I would prefer to stick with the stock bike with stock components. On the other hand side: Whether or not a rider makes it to the top depends more on the support and willingness to travel of the parents than on the bike. Canario
  14. I agree. It should be ensured that the bikes absolutely correspond to the series standard in the core areas (engine, transmission, Carburettor, Injection system, front- and rear suspension). For training they can use what they want, but during the GP they should use their Series bikes, observed and transported by FIM. I'm big fan of Pat Smage. He could compete in the top level but he preferred to stay in the USA and not to move to Spain and train with the top guys (what is kind of necessary). Canario
  15. There is a "mark" visible (coming from the manufacturing process in a two-part mould) at "3 o'clock" position on the Renthal Grip. When he turn the throttle, this mark disappears behind his fingers. Therefore, for me it looks like something about 90° for full throttle. That would be exactly the same, I have with the white grip on my 2012 Raga (2,2°/mm at 44 mm total stroke). Would be interesting to know, if these "extra rings" are able to provide a kind of progessive (or better degressive) throttle opening curve (e.g. an elliptical ring/piece). Canario
  16. This would explain a lot to me. I saw Franzi with his new Gold this year the first time at the first Race for the german Championship in Neunkirchen. It was amazing to hear how fast the engine picked up the revs and I wondered what the trick (one of the tricks) could be. Canario
  17. With the given space (radius) in the throttle housing, it is difficult for me to imagine how to make this work. I am surely will ask Jens, when I see him next time, but I can imagine that this is already a topic in my local club. Canario
  18. A lot of the young german riders have these custom covers with own logo or an arrow showing which direction is "Vollgas" (full throttle). These parts are obviously manufactured as 3D-Print parts. Canario
  19. This was in 2009. What are your weighing results today? Canario
  20. The german Trials magazin "Trialsport" did test and weigh them: -> Link Canario

    Interesting idea, that makes sense. I have always considered the guard as protection of the exhaust header, not vice versa. 😉 Canario

    Future of Gasgas

    Good news from GasGas: They plan to build moto-cross bikes and start in the MX-GP. Glenn Coldenhoff will change to GasGas as well as Taddy Blazusiak and Laia Sanz. Canario

    Future of Gasgas

    Here the news in english: -> Link Should be good news for GasGas entirely, but I guess with view on well established TRS, Vertigo, Beta, for the trials division it will be a long way back.
  24. I understand your point, but I try to see it from Jeronis point of view. The doping test took place a year ago on 16 september 2018 in Arco di Trento. The analytical finding was notified to the rider on 23 January 2019. FIM let him ride the whole season(s). So it took a year to come to a decision, that's not the fault of the rider.
  25. He lost all points from 16 september 2018 to 16 september 2019. I would say, that is punishment enough.
