  1. Ethanol is the Devil's drool. It has swollen the tanks on 2 of my bikes, rotted the fuel hoses and caused ignition problems on my classic car and means that chainsaws, mowers etc need to be drained if they are going to be left unused for any length of time. I use Super (5% ethanol or less) whenever possible, but it still needs thinking about to minimise problems.

    Fuel mixture

    Maybe so, but I've never heard of an engine seizing due to too much oil. I use 60:1. As long as it isn't producing too much 'spooge' and it reacts sharply, I'm OK with maybe using a little too much oil; it is a helluva lot cheaper than what might happen through using too little.
  3. I'd ride it a little further - back to the lad you bought it from 😑
  4. I ride quite a bit with my son (who doesn't seem to appreciate that I'm old enough to be his father!) but my 'best mate', who I ride with every weekend, is 27 - I'm 67. This is a great sport, ain't it?.

    HI mate

    Can you give me a call on 07748110911 about sending out the Jitsie Jacket by post.

    As the saying goes - buy cheap, buy twice. There are often pairs of barely used boots on eBay. As long as you know your size (it can vary between different makes) then you could get a quality pair for around, or less than, the new price of a cheap pair.
  7. 'Flame out' - blimey, I haven't heard that term since I was flying jets 😏
  8. Does anyone know where a Mont 315 manual can be downloaded please? Mine is a 2001, but any year will do for general guidance/torque settings etc. I have trawled through past posts (most of them long past) but none of the posted links are still active.

    Graphics peeling…

    Be very careful about using any kind of glue on graphics, many glues cause them to melt. The best way I've found is to thoroughly clean the back of the graphic (surprisingly, you can use a little petrol without it removing the glue) and then simply use a hot air gun/hairdryer to reattach the graphic.

    315 fuel/oil

    I run mine at 60:1 simply because it is the mix I use in my other bikes and don't want to confuse matters. It runs well on it and is not too smoky.

    2 stroke oil

    Plutoline? is that the one Mickey Mouse uses?
  12. Good luck. I managed to source a couple from a member of this forum a couple of years ago, but don't think there are any still available commercially.

    Hi wondering if anyone could help,I have recently brought a trails bike for the first time, after many years of riding road bikes,I live in the Dudley area West Midlands, is there a begineers club anywhere around me to teach me the basics and go out riding, I'm not a spring chicken our want to be shown up, it took me by surprise thinking it was easier than it looks,look forward to hearing of anyone thankyou.

  14. Ah, the very opposite end of the County! I was going to point you at a great practice area http://www.bikersrest.com/ where I ride regularly, but it is up on the Hartland peninsula - a bit of a long drag away from you.
