  1. 301 is best mont to date - i was impressed when changed from 260 to 300rr bur 301 is another 20 or 30 % better again. Just the same but much better - nothing obvious but just smoother and more useable Its hard to describe but when I changed early 2020 and let a few local mont 260 riders have ago they thought i should be banned for cheating πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  2. As A practice thing try several rocks spaced just under bike length apart and hop onto each one dropping front wheel then going again. should help you feel how you can keep front wheel in the air with small amount of throttle
  3. Especially with the earlier ones but less so with latter ones I found you have to keep the throttle open a bit on landing the front wheel. You can control the weight of the wheel coming down as much on the throttle as the brakes. Having ridden 4rt for a while now and on a 301 now I find I have to use the brake more as latest bikes have less engine braking . This helps though on slippery downhill cambers and drop as the front seems less weighted
  4. Check how the sprocket lines up. sounds like wheel is out of line
  5. As it’s virtually brand new and only 100 Miles seems strange to give it a service. i would take it it back to the dealer before ripping things to bits. once you start to mess would presume warranty starts to get fuzzy
  6. I’ve stripped clutch several times without doing this . Maybe not correct by the book but seemed ok
  7. Don't mess with the bike - you will spoil it, Set it to standard and then learn how to ride it, Find somebody who can show you how to get the best out of a 4rt. if nobody local search this forum for tips. Once you have got the hang of the Mont then modify anything you think is needed
  8. None of the top boys asked for a 5 in St David's last year - if anything they wanted it harder πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ
  9. it takes weeks of planning for BTC (and other nationals /big events) (even a club trials takes a few weeks to organise ) so once the event date is committed to it is very hard to stop and start again on another date even if riders are free, land owner agrees. There are observers/officials etc to sort out again, First aid, Food van, Toilets etc etc That's without looking at the sections etc
  10. Acting and drama can survive without Hollywood superstars but do you want to watch the am dram pantomime on a Saturday night prime tv πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  11. And the top boys get to show how good and how brave they are - which is good for joe public as when they are allowed back in
  12. The top 6 / 8/ 10 how ever many want it super tough to push themselves/each other The up and coming -older past BTC rider doesn't want to hurt themselves The good center expert / older older BTC rider (sorry Dan) just want a good days sport and a national championship aimed at a slightly higher level then S3 champ. The good Local Centre riders can ride and enjoy the event without being hurt. Always going to be a compromise but Kind of works at the moment - good competition in each class and the organizer get enough riders to balance the books
  13. Looking at the pictures and the weather I bet the top six were glad they stayed in warmer climate.. Admirations to the organizers/observers and riders for sticking it out - bad enough for one day but to have 2 days -great effort .
  14. Maybe Is it just the different riding style now needed with a 2t - more throttle input compared to the 4rt? maybe just need to ride through it until your body adjusts when I switched to the 4rt elbows used to hurt due the torque at MRD bottom end and the β€œhang off the back β€œ riding style of the mont
