  1. They are punchy motors for sure mine will have had a full engine rebuild rebuilt exhaust system new wheel bearings and possibly a caliper rebuild on the front๐Ÿ˜ costing a few quid but there's not many about these days, even second hand parts are getting sparse... Since they are world cup winning bikes they are still worth keeping going. I dare not work out the spend so far, but it could well run for another quarter century not needing very much other than service item's. Well that's the hope๐Ÿ˜„
  2. The bikes clutch is great now, no lurching, however I bought a recon cylinder barrel and piston as I've decided to have a full engine rebuild including big end. Which means getting the crank split and a new Conrod kit,new mains and seals.I guess if it's replaceable it's being replaced in the engine. Also overhauling the rear shock linkages while it's getting the engine renewed. Trial and tribulations is doing all the work on the bike for me. He put in light-gear oil in the box and told me to just stick with it and not to bother with ATF. They are such good bikes it's worth keeping it going and this work will last quite a long time, after all they won the trials world cup on the JT25 contact.
  3. All fixed a connector pin the the fan plug was pushed back in the connector so no circuit. New clutch and master kit fitted somebody had removed a clutch plate and what was left were badly worn. Thanks to Ian at Trials and Tribulations in Church Stretton Shropshire.
  4. Had a new clutch and water pump kit done it works a dream also had the whole exhaust system repacked so it now sounds better and has back pressure. Next is a piston and barrel change and all new bearings. It should be good for another 20 years...
  5. Yep I bought for the wrong side such a Muppet I know.
  6. So am I.... And more importantly how much it going to cost๐Ÿ˜…
  7. No I couldn't find one on eBay for sale but found this universal one, hopefully it will do the job, I got fed up with the bike falling over, when others just put a side stand down.
  8. I'm new to trials bikes. Can anyone help. So I've just bought a universal side stand where would be the correct place to fix it on my GasGas JT25 1995 bike. Swinging arm or on the frame?
  9. I decided to take the bike to "trials and tribulations" for a looking at, as the clutch is still not working as it needs to be, I put it in gear and was wheeling with the clutch in. Good job I was on the flat not up the side of a hill. Something is a miss on the thing. I will let you know what they say. Took the bike in to Trials and tribulations to look at the issue and was told don't use ATF in the engine just light gear oil.
  10. Your bike looks nice. Mines a bit tatty as a 17 year old had it before and didn't have a clue on looking after it. It's getting plenty of attention now though. These bikes are getting rare. A blast from the past.
  11. Check the connector as mine had 1 of the pins not making contact causing the fan not to work. I only discoverd it once I had it in bits and tested via a battery, I tried a jumper wire on the thermostat wires to make a circuit while the engine was running, but the fan didn't run. That's why I took it to pieces to replace the original fan with another from eBay for a tenner. But didn't need to do anything other than push a connector in the block...
  12. I've just bought some mineral two stroke oil from Screwfix to try, I've mixed 75 mil to 5L. (60:1) It's worth a try to see how it runs on the mix. Otherwise I have a large amount of fuel for the strimmer ๐Ÿ˜†. We also put in a new master seal kit in the clutch lever yesterday. The next thing will be a new clutch... Plus water pump repair kit from trials and tribulations I think we will try ATF when we do drop in a new clutch as I've heard it solves a lot of issues. Have you heard anything about using ATF in the GasGas.
  13. I've just stripped down the radiator off bike to fix the fan. I bought a eBay fan to replace it( cut n glue job) to find out it's just one of the connectors in the power, it had pushed out of the connection block.so it wasn't making a connection... Boy do I feed daft for not checking the connector first. Plus side it's got new antifreeze in it now... Still might have a weeping water pump though.
  14. Try either GasGas UK in Buxton Derbyshire or Trials &Tribulations Ltd in Church Stretton Shropshire. I'm running a oil petrol mix of 75mil to 5 Litres which is 66:1, I think non synthetic two stroke oil works better in these older bikes at that ratio.
  15. I've taken the clutch apart this afternoon and did as you suggested. Removed any glue or crud from the gaps between the friction material on each clutch plate. I've put in Pennzoil 5w30 none synthetic oil I will see if it's an improvement in the coming weeks. I think the water pump is weeping in to the gearbox as the oil was looking a bit milky when draining it, also small bits on the magnetic sump plug, so it's best to change it and keep an eye on it๐Ÿ˜‰
