  1. Thanks for the info. I've decided to keep one bike with the fibreglass tank as it has now and the other with the Ally tank..
  2. Thanks folks & some good points raised. I've road bikes with plastic tanks and have had many enduro bikes with plastic tanks too. I was planning to line the fibreglass tanks with something. Where could I find a basic ally tank to sit under the shroud? I was more concerned that my freshly renovated trials bike wouldn't be allowed to trial if the tank was banned, but looks like that's OK now.
  3. OK - Thank you. I think the fibreglass tank is a neater solution assuming it's done well.
  4. I have x2 247 Cotas that I'm restoring. 1 has the original glass fibre inbuilt tanks and the other an aluminium tank that sits on the frame spine with the fibreglass tank internals removed. What is the UK situation with running fibreglass fuel tanks as I believe back in the day they were banned hence why some bikes have ally ones? Thanks Folks
  5. I did think that might be it.. thanks
  6. Folks. What is the cylindrical chamber I can see on some 247 pictures mounted on top of the rear engine mount? Thanks
  7. Yes, well that's the plan once COVID has done it's thing and cleared off. I did ride with the local Cambridge Matchless club >10 years back, so hoping for something more appropriate. Having raced enduro for >20 years, thousands of road miles and heaps of track days for me Trials is the real fine art. Are you a Dabber?
  8. Great. Thank you. I'll get a 9 & 10 front to try then. Cheers
  9. Thanks. I’m just after what the standard gearing is so number of teeth front and back. mentioned the 520 chain just in save that had an impact on the 9 or 10 On the front. I did look on line and at my dodgy scan of a manual but no joy. it’s a simple enough answer if you know of course.
  10. Can anyone help with the standard sprockets on the 247 Cota please? I'm using a 520 chain if that has any bearing on things..
  11. Thanks - I've spoken to them and sent pics of what I'm after.
  12. What's the thread? Could always turn some up!
  13. Thank you & I will speak to them. Cheers
  14. Looks a good place to ask - thanks for posting!
