  1. I ended up getting really lucky and finding the original piece which is no longer available. It does have a slight divot as stevec mentioned. The chain rub block isn't available anymore so I drew it up and a local trials buddy is printing a nylon replacement,
  2. My clutch push rod has been misplaced and before I order a new one I wonder if someone might have one handy and they ability to get an accurate measurement? 270CC model. Thanks, Frank
  3. After the fall and first backfire episode, I opened the throttle all the way, kicked several times and got nothing, not even a pop, closed the throttle, kicked again and several more hard kick-backs. I returned to work and removed the plug and it was very sooty (way more than normal used plug from this bike) I then put a new plug and nothing changed. I did not inspect the kill switch but I did just remember that a riding buddy asked me if I had whacked the coil guard on a rock (highly possible) but I overlooked that. Ill take another look in a couple hours. Thanks!
  4. I have had the bike for a couple months and really like it. I had a little tip-over on the left side today and when restarted it ran well for 10 seconds then started backfiring violently then stalled. I tried restarting and it kicked back hard several times but never fired up. It acted like the flywheel key was sheared but upon disassembly was fine. Does this sound like the ignition module? Thanks for looking.

  6. I love the RI event. I get to work as a checker at the National event which will be a great experience!
  7. Another happy "Beta clutch fix" customer! This Beta forum in it's entirety has been great. My REV3 is an 02 model and has had several owners prior to me but the clutch was still stock. I did all the clean-up work with a small square file and polished the tangs with a scotchbrite belt and the whole project only took a couple hours. On it's first outing it was a little noisy but worked much better (good enough for second in class) and ended up meeting Dan and getting a set of his off-set spring washers which lightened clutch action quite a bit. Thanks!
  8. My thumb knuckles have arthritis which has recently been aggravated by switching to a modern bike as well and read that high quality olive oil blocks some types of pain when massaged into effected areas. Seems worth a try.
  9. 650C is the same as 26X1 so it's smaller than a 650B
  10. Yes for the most part. I don't mind them at an angle except they don't fold back properly. I angled them a little in an effort to make the kicker clear the peg. It does not.
  11. I lowered my pegs about 12mm which made it turn even better than before and I was able to operate the brake better too! The bike worked really well over the weekend, thanks for the help folks!
  12. That looks pretty easy! My mounts are tapered pieces of thick square tube and stuck on there pretty well. Thanks. Great comment and you are correct but I probably didn't pull the front brake lever hard enough. The grade was extremely steep and front brake lever angle may not have been correct along with the brake pedal. I bottomed the fork so hard oil shot out past the seals! I clearly need to work on my set-up.
  13. Not very much. may be 15mm before the shoes touch. I keep the slack to a minimum. I can probably add some to the brake pedal and also looking at making some lower profile pegs. The pedal is much lower than the peg when applied. Thanks folks, Ill make some progress and check in.
  14. I had a weird experience today. I had to go down a very steep grade about 4/5m tall with a short run out and got a severe calf cramp trying to stay on the rear brake. I wonder how far above the peg is considered ideal? I may need to lower my pegs as my brake pedal can't go up any more. Thank you.
  15. I have heard of those TF bikes and seen a few photos of the stock version. They have an extra motor mount at the back of the engine and I think the kicker is situated higher in the case like the RM engines. They seem like a great platform for a conversion and I would love to see what the guy came up with!
