    Bought fork guards ... perfect fit and really fast delivery. No issues at all.
  3. I've been waiting for results also ... is looking less and less likely

    Hi Carl, The ODI throttle tubes may not work in the Domino trials throttle housing. There is a trials bolt on grip solution offered by S3 ... just google "S3 trials grips". Andrew
  5. Spencer is correct - rule 25.01 ...
  6. I used the VMAR top clamp on my 2005 4RT ... they suit 2005-2008 models. Uses straight rather than angled clamps. http://www.vmar.com/tripleclamp.html
  7. That relay is for the fan ... if you do want to get it out, I find it easier to remove the airbox.
  8. I doubt that information is stored ... I use an hour meter on mine.
  9. Had these on my 4RT. Very nice http://www.vmar.com/tripleclamp.html VMAR also offer single bolt attachment clamps to allow putting fatbars on a 315. They are angled like standard 4RT ones. http://www.vmar.com/barmounts.html
  10. Hi Chris, I fitted one to a 2015 Repsol a few months ago. 1. I seem to recall I measured it at 27mm external. Forgot to check wall thickness but larger bore for sure. 2. Heat shield almost fits ... a minute with a small file and it went on just fine. Looks OK. 3. Comes with a thinner seal. No issues fitting into the original silencer. If the dealer (?Tarp) doesn't send the seal, send the pipe back. I bought direct from S3 and definitely comes with a new seal. 4. I wondered about the straight pipe but the fit was good. Tried to fit without removing the silencer. Not easy so removed the silencer, put the header on without tightening things up, refitted the silencer and then tightened everything up. 5. Starting turning blue within an hour. I like the look. Needed to increase the idle speed. Seems smoother off idle. Sounds similar - maybe a slight bit deeper. Am happy with it. Let me know if you want a photo and I can post one, Andrew
  11. Nothing in my spam/junk folder Andy ...
  12. Hi jj, I am the 'ameisner' enquirer ... nothing through to my email from you. My Paypal account all set to make a purchase Andrew

    Montesa 4Rt?

    Yet another 4RT assistant. This time of the aforementioned 1100 hour 2005 model. Assistant not much good at diagnosing bike issues but superb at chewing right through the original '05 rear guard hence the '09 plastics ... Andrew

    Montesa 4Rt?

    Hi Mags, Was running fine, a little tick from valve clearances. Just decided to do it so bought lots of parts, dropped engine off and picked up a while later. Valves perfect, cam chain plenty of life left, just ended up as piston and rings. Valve seals because we had them. Bore perfect, had worn through Teflon on the tiny piston skirts so could see the aluminium. Started 3rd kick after and was like a sewing machine. The mechanic just couldn't believe it - said it was a really good simple design in his opinion (loved the roller cam followers which are simple to adjust). Quieter and a bit crisper was the result. I put a new plug in every 100 hours after I got odd stalling and realised the plug had been in for 300 hours. Would love a 2014 or 2015 but my 2005 will have to do for a while longer. Andrew

    Montesa 4Rt?

    That would be mine although is at 1100 hours now. Did piston, rings and valve seals at 700 hours - paid to do it, $600 all up. Am OK with less than $1 per hour.
  16. Both Australia and NZ stop allowed - never changed ...
  17. DB killer fitted to a Mitani silencer. Nice sound, not loud at all.
  18. Hi Mags, I took my 4RT stand off 7 years ago ... they aren't great at all. A friend has purchased an aluminium one from Banyeres in Spain. http://www.jbanyeres.com/en/chasis/2260-caballete-aluminio-rtl-2t-4t-ligero.html Good price, the Spanish VAT is taken off before calculating the cost and shipping is very resonable. Is a good solution if you want a stand that works. I am really happy without one. Andrew
  19. All I see when I drive somewhere is sections on the side of the road ... and often my non-trials riding passengers are now spotting sections for me too. Nice :-)
  20. 22kg is impressive. Weighed my 4RT engine when I had it out of the bike and the scales told me 29kg ...
  21. Hi Sherco34, My homemade single bike trailer is on my garage page http://www.trialscentral.com/forums/garage/vehicle/17-montesa/ It doesn't compress the bike's suspension. Front wheel held securely, rear wheel strapped down. No suspension on trailer, bike acts as the suspension. Also have a three bike trailer with a rack that holds the front wheel of the centre bike and rear wheel of the outside bikes. starp the wheels to the rack and no compression of the suspension. Both trailer have worked well for over 50,000km of trials bike towing.
  22. I used a stainless steel hose clamp (jubilee clip). Worked perfectly. And yes, did notice the holes for the rubber boot tabs didn't line up ... I made a template using the original pump holder and redrilled the Future item. Reassembled and started after 5 kicks. Perfect. Thanks everyone for your comments and photos. Andrew
