  1. There's also a dmple on the end that conforms to the ball bearing if I'm not mistaken.
  2. Originally a reliability trial, one point for footing (on hill sections) was introduced in 1931. Does anyone know when a contemporary scoring system was introduced and when the emphasis on reliability was dropped?
  3. I haven't heard of this being an issue with Shercos but have you checked for a sheered woodruff key?
  4. I've owned both and enjoyed them equally. Both had virtually every mod available. Suspensions can be set up to perform pretty much the same and they have similar weights. The major difference is power and how it's delivered. The Fantic motor is much closer to a modern bike and delivers substantially more power than the TL. That doesn't mean I preferred it to the TL, it just needs to be ridden differently. Set up right ($), they can both be very competitive bikes.
  5. Then there's these: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1228477081/ultimate-tether?click_key=2595cfe7b9f3f4deeb43685556b3a86c0c44ad1d%3A1228477081&click_sum=f929a5f8&ref=shop_home_feat_3 . The magnet in the bead works keeps it from dangling around when off the bike. He also offers these caps: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1195989353/logoed-kill-switch-cap?click_key=5e2539f92b3190e4f857cf10f7c0589d30891fc3%3A1195989353&click_sum=b3be6e7a&ref=shop_home_feat_1 .
  6. Here's mine. Wireway rack with three muffin fans - two facing up (one under the helmet, one blowing through two PVC pipe sections supporting the gloves), one facing down for the boots. Powered by a timer. I set it for four hours and forget it.
  7. Not to mention long term storage. Fuel with ethanol seems to "go bad" three to four times faster than ethanol free.

    This was discussed here (starting about half way down the page): https://www.advrider.com/f/threads/calling-out-trs-owners-questions-things-to-share.1288338/page-224
  9. I thought people might get a kick out of this US based catalog from 1977. Prices (USD) appear to have gone up a bit since then. https://newenglandtrials.com/thetryalsshope/
  10. I'm not sure the material makes much of a difference. If designed correctly, a different pipe might improve scavenging and have a slight cooling effect.
  11. Now there's some working hands! Here's the most useful thread: https://www.advrider.com/f/threads/calling-out-trs-owners-questions-things-to-share.1288338/page-19#post-35746434 . "Hoss Cartright" is Jim Snell, the US importer.
  12. There have been reports of gas tank vent valves sticking. The valve is in the gas cap: Loosen the cap next time it happens and listen for air rushing in. Some riders remove the ball and install a conventional check valve on the end of the vent tube.
