  1. A general question really for many bike variants. Sometimes the pots in the caliper don't move outwards at the same rate. Obviously its either muck or dry seals etc that's causing friction.I can work them free using little clamps on opposing pots but once done what oil if any would you try to use on the seal area?

    Premix Oil

    I use Castrol A747 at 100 to 1. 50ml in 5 ltres of fuel in the Gas Gas. Been doing this for 5 years and no top end issues. It also smells fantastic
  3. Castrol A747 50ml to 5 litres thats 100 to 1 for the last 4 years no issues. Any thin oil including ATF
  4. If it's carbon airbox you shouldn't have the usual water mud issues. Linkage needs maintenance but most bikes do. Kickstart is prone to shedding teeth if not used properly. Kehien carb needs a fiddle to get it how you like it but apart from those easy fixes can't think of anything else.
  5. Nice tip for any bike forum
  6. Thanks all esp trialman. Does it go in backwards or forewards
  7. Tempted to get one of the wheelchair adapted vehicles for trials transport. They're probably better looked after than vans.Does anyone use one. This may be more practical for me than a van. All comments welcome. Picture would be great.
  8. Id say get some trials boots to aid leg and foot movement. That could help you lots.
  9. I suppose the final comment by Section Swept could almost be done by pumping the tyres up rock hard to do test?
  10. That's a top tip by Thall1. Its what I do too.Also warm outside of hub when removing too. It all helps.
  11. It'll be the centre bolt with hole in it. Hold in clutch as much as possible. Rev engine high and bolt will /should self screw back into place. Otherwise remove cover with bike on its side and tighten centre bolt.
  12. iT'LL BE INCONSITENT PLATE THICKNESSES. IF YOUVE PUT IT BACK TOGETHER NOT EXAC TLY AS BEFORE THIS CAN HAPPEN. TWO OPTIONS STRIP IT AND RE ALIGN(DIFFICULT) OR LIVE WITH IT FOR A WEEK OR TWO, HAMMER THE CLUTCH AND IT SHOULD REBED AND START FEELING BETTER. Caps lock was on . Not retyping !!!
  13. I never file. I use a punch on the top of each tooth. This roughs it up without removing any metal. I do this on titanium pegs so will be even better on alloy ones.
  14. I had the same symptoms and had only just changed the packing. Smoke smells different and engine runs erratically. Mine is the seal on clutch side and could be both. I'd say if it smokes but runs ok it'll be oil in the exhaust.
  15. I,d strip the carb fist and blow all jets through. Most likely water droplet somewhere. If it was fine before it'll be something simple. If its a keihin carb set air screw to 1.5 turns out and go from there
