  1. Alright To be fair, I brought a 300 which I downsized to 250 top end. The top end I bought was a second hand from a Spaniard whom did the opposite change from 250 to 300cc. I got it with both standard and high comp s3 head. When I received it I rushed to instal it and went direct to the s3 high comp for which I measured comp ratio (which I did for both heads)... So I can not tell you what the diff between both, I am sorry! On a side note believe it or not the s3 head and hence head cover (trs not compatible) are from gasgas txt and do fit my trs... Davy
  2. Hi there, I run my trs 250 with a s3 high compression head which give the bike a 12.35 to 1 compression ratio from the 10.5 to 1 as standart. And I run it on 98 regular pump gas. No prob whatsoever as such as pinging or detonation... Davy
  3. Hi anotherfive, I see from your profile that you own a gasgas 300 are u referring to the gasser clutch wise or are u talking about a trs mate? Rather make sure we re on the same page? and not comparing apples to oranges.... Tx Davy
  4. Thanks for your input i will have a look on mine. Got info from dherbey moto in france they usually re really good advices...
  5. Hi there, My 2017 raga after I change gear box oil from 10w30 to nils which is way thinner is now slipping. In 4 th and 5th couldn t get engine full rpm and no motion... I added 50 ml from the 300 ml and it made the clutch working fine again... yet I figure I would have to check and most probably change the clutch disc pack which I have order now. I got info than finger height should be at 22mm but how should I measure it? Disc pack is supposedly to be at 8.5 apparently... Thanks for your help Davy
  6. Hi there anyone to explain me how to measure finger heights by chance ? Tx Davy
  7. tx for the answer I should put my hand on one and tried it to check any carb change I guess!
  8. Hi there about this bit of plastic at the inlet arte you referring to the "Reed" which can can pivot up and down? What is the purpose of this bit tho,anyone can explain it to me? On My trs I don't have this part bought it as second hand... Davy
  9. Hi folks yesterday i got a similar issue: did a carb clean up and changed my spark plug as a basic maintenance and rode some section for a full tank of gas. Ran fine until it didn't. First thought was running out of gas but no. Idling was fine and quarter throttle was strong but I couldn't rev the engine up. It was dying every try. Today I checked wiring harness, cdi, killer switch, spark plug, air filter, I would not accept my carb was crapping on me since I had it cleaned up 24h earlier... until I opened the bowl to find out that the main pilot jet was hanging in the bowl instead of being at the bottom of the needle shaft.. I first thought for the first time in my life was like pointless to screw the jet like a donkey the only thing that could happen would be to mess and destroy the carb. I guess it wasn t tight enough, no point trying to rev my engine up without the pilot jet in its dedicated place after it got unscrewed by engine vibrations! I hope I have learnt something at one point. I might not be smart but at least I hope I will feel like a normal human being with a proper brain... Oneday... enjoy your week end
  10. Alright I will had my two cents on this old topic, never know it might help a bit... I got myself a second hand trs raga 2017 and realized that TRS (up to 2017 models) uses the same comex fan than older GASGAS TXT that caused problemes to friends of mine... during the lockdown doing slow stuff in my back yard my radiator went boiling... looked at it checked everything just to find out that fan would not spin any more under electrical power from the engine. further I got to plug in directly the fan's wires directly to a 12v battery with no success... Finally after trying not hard enough i guess, since i could not get to secure my nail in position to hammer the shaft out, so I grinded with a Dremel two opposite flat on the shaft and blocked it in a vice, didn't work properly but having it pinched with a vice grip plier I eventually and surprisingly easely got it to move while holding the fan in the other hand. After couples rotations, i had the shaft pushed in couples mm and could now place the nail in the bearing and hammer it out... what i found out if a totally rusted electric motor, after having it put it appart and cleaning with proper electrical fluid, still no cookies, I guess the thing is toasted period! So now I am into this position whether I will buy a new complete fan for around 70 euros, or do the motor replacement since i already got it out now... I might do both actually, so that I will have a spare in case something goes wrong with this bit, heard so many problems on gasgas with this part... anyway i will let you here couples pictures in case someone has the same problems than myself For your information, I found online quite cheap units (47€) which are coming from germany, my problems is that after shipping it comes merely below the price from trial retailers so not sure about it... here is the link if i am allowed if not I will erase it: http://www.kuehler-rath.com/epages/63250660.sf/en_GB/?ViewObjectPath=%2FShops%2F63250660%2FProducts%2F58911
  11. My 17 raga has a different shock which is a 3 ways only reiger. In the attached file are the setting of this shock... Good luck finiking with them settings mate Davy Trial_HL_manual.pdf
  12. I just bought a used 300 raga (couldnt find a 250), seller sold it to me as a 2018 model I didn t even bother looking closely since it was a very clean bike... then i just realized my bike (Spanish model) doesn' t look like other 2018 (french) RR other folks in my local club have: *mine has a red cylinder head which apparently only came in 2019 raga... *mine has regular forks not golded and not blacks lower tube... *on mine the stickers are from raga 2019 model and no swing arm sticker either as per 2017... *my handle bar is black has per 2017 model unlike my mate have the reken white one... Any suggestion folks, I am totally confused? Maybe the serial numbers will reveal the date model? As per the legal plate number and administrative document it appears it has been first road legal in december 2017... Thanks for your help Davy
  13. There are so many settings that trying to tweak this thing out is like rocket science to me. Today I was just about to change the settings but I freaked out realizing how clueless I was and left everything stock... I truly wish I knew how to... Enjoy your ride Davy
  14. Tx mate, so far I got this answer from trs uk: "2016/17/18/19 One 2017RR All use the first generation motor 2018/2019/2020RR 2020R Use the 2nd generation motor. . The main differences are kickstart mechanism main bearing and seal arrangements. I hope this helps " I truly thought they were some cylinder port timing and cylinder head chamber change being done... Anyway tx for your help Davy
  15. Hi folks, I am trying to figure out when was the year which has seen the switch in regard of the engine department? I do know that as for 2020 the TRS R and the TRRS (RAGA) do share the same engine block (which is apparently quite alive compare to older gen) engine which came from 2019 TRRS RAGA... now here lies my question: was the 2018 TRRS RAGA equipped with this very same engine (new cylinder, combustion chamber, CDI...) or was the 2018 the older version which was apparently a bit more anemic? I am considering getting a 2018 TRRS 250cc and I would rather make sure that it is equipped with the new engine . Thanks for your inputs Davy
