    Hired a van

    What do you use every day though - the math only makes sense if you have the van sat on the drive all week but if its your daily runaround its no more expensive other than maybe less mpg

    Fitting out a van

    I just strap mine to the side -foam protector on the end of the handle bar -run strap though in between top of fork tubes / just under yoke - not much tension needed and solid as a rock - as the song goes

    Changing pads in braktec caliper

    Unbolt calliper push piston back most of the way This will alllow 1 pad to fall forward and out then the 2 nd one is easy to put back put the one pad in and push into place with a small screw driver and second one will then go back in. not sure what the benefit over the old design with a pin but they where much easier and I’m sure the friction material was thicker as not restricted by the install method

    I stuck with the 4rt and just enjoy the good times - I deliberately don't try 2ts just in case I'm drawn back from the dark side🤣 As said many times you pay your money and make your choices.. I think the longer you stick with the 4rt and are able to learn its quirks then they can be as competitive as anything on the clubman route - expert wise then they may be less competitive or more limiting??

    limp :(

    I seem to recall in a previous fault finding post that the temp sensor is just that and not a thermo switch . Ecu maybe looking for a resistance and not an on/ off signal. if going into limp would when no obvious fault would imagine its a bad input going into ecu rather than an ecu fault as such . dodgy sensors / corroded joint / broken wire etc hope Santa brings you a simple fix

    Rake and trail

    It’s an easy measurement so don’t think that’s the reason - think more the marketing is now done by “branding experts “ as they say on the apprentice rather than engineers so graphics are more important than mm ( inches for the pre 65 brigade) and degrees 🤣🤣

    limp :(

    I don’t know for certain but would think the limp mode is in the ecu software which I don’t think you can readily get into to change . Ive had a fuel pump play up and a ptb fault in the past and not had the limp mode kick in so maybe a temp issue . I wonder if you linked the sensor out and put fan in manual you could maybe fault find further or kid the ecu that all was ok and hence come out of limp mode.

    Montesa v Beta

    I could do that on a 2t 🤣🤣🤣 Think that's just called trials riding. I think the variation can be greater on 4rt though especially if the condition are 4rt un friendly - slippery - hop and stop type going that the 2 t riders can hop - balance then burn at
