  1. I just bought a 2005 4RT which is great. Yesterday I went to the local Honda/Yamaha/Husaberg/Beta shop to get a part for my vintage 74 TY250 and noticed a 4RT sitting in the service department. The service manager said that the fuel pump was bad and wondered if I knew where to get one. Honda/Montesa are doing a poor job of supplying parts here in the states. I have searched the forums and and the internet and have not found a reasonable "walk into the auto parts store" replacement for the 4RT fuel pump. I would like to see this bike fixed for a reasonable cost as trials riding mates are hard to come by in South West Colorado. Has anyone tried the H and D Racing light weight pump? http://handdracing.com/page2.htm Thanks in advance DFW

    Scorpa Clutch

    I use Mobile 1 Synthetic ATF in my 03 SY250R and it solved all the problems of the clutch sticking.
  3. Just got a 2005 4RT and compared to either my 03 Scorpa SY250R or my 04 Beta Rev3 the fan seems to run a lot more of the time. Is this normal? Are there any problems with the water pump impeller wearing out? The air temperature while riding was about 60 F or 15 C Thanks DFW

    This happened to my 03. Sent it to back to the importer and he fixed it. I did't have bar ends installed and the throttle was wide open and stuck in the mud. I tried to stop the engine with the kill switch. Just as it was almost stopped I slipped down the hill, it backfired and twisted the crank. Take off the ignition cover and check the run out of the flywheel.
  5. Thanks Cope Amazing talent!
  6. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic ATF. Works great.
  7. Oh My God, Dinosaur p*** killed the dinosaurs. Now we know. Got to agree with you about the plastic bags. You ought to see what gets stuck in the trees when Greens Bayou (Rio Bravo Motorcycle Park) floods in Houston

    Rim Tape Fitting

    I bought a gallon of tire installation lube. It is slick as snot and worked very well to install the rim strip and tires as well. You might run by a tire shop and see if they will give or sell you a little bit. I figure the gallon I bought will last me for over a century.

  10. I have an M2000 for my Scorpa and bought one for my sons Sherco. The screen for the Sherco was a loose fit and when he ran the bike the screen popped out never to be seen again. I looked up the M2000 on the forest service web site and found out that the J.G. Minter and Sons firm in California manufactured it. I tried calling them but the number was disconnected. That was two years ago. I tried a few weeks ago to no avail. I called Ryan and he said that the conpany did not sell replacement screans. Ryan asked me to send the M2000 back to him and he would see what he could do. I never got around to doing it. You need a special flux to solder SS. Have done it but it is a bitch. You need to have the gas ratio just right. Oxydizing=Carborizing who knows. You might try spotwelding the screen. DFW
  11. I saw McGrath's buffet at the Houston Supercross about nine years ago. Meat, salad, green veggies, and cheese were on the table. No carbs of any kind. I didn't see what if anything he had between heats. Cheera DFW

    Howling Sound

    Howling? No. How much of what do you have in the tranny Cheers DFW PS Does it whine like a BETA?
  13. Obama fo fama bad lama,,, Got to agree John Cleese is great.
  14. Neo, I always liked a few bars from Georg Friedrich Handel. Cheers DFW PS I like the Fat Bars on my Scorpa.
  15. Jon, Thanks for the invite. It snowed 8-10" on Sunday and we had to cancel the trials. Looks like I will have to stay here and see if I hear about a twister caused by you and cope talking past each other. DFW
  16. Warm and dry? Yesterday at the fun trials it was 34 deg F with snow falling. Today the weather for the season opener it is 31 deg F and we have 4" of snow at my house and likely more up on the mountain where the trials will be held. Of course they say "if you don't like the weather in Wyoming wait ten minutes" Cheers DFW
  17. Ishy, That looks like a great idea, but what is that granular brown stuff the wires are sticking in? Seems to me most of our sections are on solid rock. We use Tough as Nails adhesive to bond the markers to the rock. We do try to match the colour of the rock so it is not too obvious when the marker is removed. Cheers DFW
  18. COPE, Might that not be a boil? I hear that down South Texas way they have crawfish and shrimp boils. How do you North Texans get boils? Cheers, DFW PS It is snowing today in Wyoming. I do miss the BBQ brisquit, ribs, and the seafood. We are having the first trials of the season on April 25th. Is it against FIM rules to attach snow shoes to your trials bike?
  19. The company that I work for had it's best year ever last year. I got a great bonus. Plenty enough to buy a new trials bike. At the same time they gave out the bonus they mentioned that there would be no pay raises in 2009. I would love to buy a new bike but I am afraid that I may not have a job after October. I have put the money in the bank and will wait until next year to see if I can still afford a new bike. The 03 scorpa will get new tires and a few new bits and pieces. A new Gas Gas or Beta will just have to wait. I hope these companies are still in business when I can afford a new bike. Best luck to all. Cheers DFW

    My 03 SY-250 has been fed with Motul 600 or 800 full synthetic at 80:1 with nary a problem since new. Unless you use smoke as a weapon or for subterfuge to baffel the observer every one in the que will appreciate you using 80:1 Cheers Doug
  23. Great video. I hope no one ran into a saguaro. DFW
  24. Zippy, I heard about the gift fiasco on the news. The reason that the gift was important is that UK is a trusted friend and ally. Obama treated the relationship as though the UK was the dirtbag republic of Lower East Fluvianastan. I certainly hope that neither Brown or Obama got anything done or are able to get anything done in the future. The UK is mired in socialism and we don't need to head any further that direction. On another front; it won't be long until Obama and his enviro buddies outlaw all 2T bikes and then make it a felony to make a tire print in the dirt. Enjoy your trials bike while you still can. Cheers DFW
