  1. Here's mine, all Chinese except for the Fantic Section forks and KDX200 silencer. Stock exhaust was loud. Footpegs are too far forward for trials but I use it as a trail bike and light trials. Brand new was $1200 from Amazon, no longer available. 180 lbs. http://www.xmotos.com/x8888/bk_15065905.html
  2. The Pro engine is 18 years old. About time for a new design.
  3. That would mean they will not supply parts for the pre KTM models like they did with Husky. Their business model is to use the same components across their brands so it wouldn't make sense for them to support the Pro motor. Maybe they will use the Freeride motor as the starting point. I'd like them to use their 150 motor which is as light as the Pro. Bored out to 180cc it would be the bike for the masses.
  4. The EPure Race looks better than the Gas Gas. No need for 6 speeds on an electric bike.
  5. Yesterday I picked up what I think is a 2005 GG EC Boy which is the enduro version of the TXT. I was planning on making it an electric bike so I don't need the motor. The seller said it has spark and I will check today.
  6. I have a feeling that Torrot is going to take the TXT-E with them when they split with Gas Gas. https://magazine.cyclenews.com/i/1151987-cycle-news-2019-issue-31-august-6/42?m4=
  7. Pat Smage is about 6 ft. and Oliver Smith is a little taller?
  8. I have a 2007 txt 250 that I bought almost new. This year the clutch seemed slow and when I rode a different bike it was really apparent. There is a fine line between having the clutch pack too thick (stiff pull) or too thin (soft pull, slow clutch). I bought one of these and my clutch is snappy again. https://www.splatshop.co.uk/xiu-rdi-adjustable-spring-clutch-support-plate.html
  9. There's another hole next to the idler gear. A friend's idler gear needle bearing disintegrated for some reason and shrapnel went through the holes and damaged the gears. I was thinking on mine to JB Weld aluminum screens on the holes in case it happens to me. Maybe a screen barrier around the primary gear since it damaged that also and the part is not available.
  10. I picked up an 07 Sherco and it has what must be the cheapest, thinnest front brake disc guard on any bike. Literally crumbled in my hand like crushing a styrofoam cup. Granted 12 years old, but I remember new ones breaking easily.

    2019 4RT

    I ride my 4rt with a seat and moved the pegs forward to make it more comfortable while sitting. The 4ride has them moved forward but not as much as mine. Having the shifter closer would be nice.
  12. My Montesa 4rt is older than my GG but has more clutch bite. I'm making my GG to have the same bite but will need to have a harder finger pull I guess. Or it could be Showa is way better than Sachs!
  13. Here is a news article from a German site saying Torrot wants to go public and investors favor futuristic electric over old tech petrol so they want to rid themselves of Gas Gas. I bet they will keep the TXT-E and rebrand it Torrot. https://magazin.baboons.de/news/technik/gasgas-vor-dem-aus-die-klare-antwort-lautet-nein
  14. If you want to keep up with Gas Gas viability news, bookmark the Gas Gas tags page. https://www.diaridegirona.cat/tags/gas-gas.html There will more updates about the negotiations with the union. Todays news is the union fears the layoffs will last more than 6 months and workers are looking for new jobs since they might not be getting any pay after July 1 from what I understand of the Google translation.
  15. I was trying to do the technique of having the rear wheel hit the same spot as the front by popping the clutch but I couldn't get much lift on my 12 year old bike. I bought an even older bike but with much less hours and more bite on the clutch and I was able to get much more lift.
