    Montesa 348 Cota, what carb is best nowadays ?

    Agreed not as transformative as changing the head angle, but as the standard affair is loose balls in a plastic race new tapered bearings made the steering a lot smoother on my bike. The old bearings were past their best probably but clean and well greased when I replaced them. Good mod IMHO for £30.

    +1 for the 26mm oko I put one on mine and it starts and runs very well... if you want it to turn better change the head stock bearings for modern roller type bearings it will transform the steering.

    1978 cota 348 paint code

    Hi All, I have a later model 348 (with the gold and black stripes) does anybody know what the paint code for the tank on this model is? Just got a new tank shelter and it looks a completely different colour from the original. Thanks Guy

    Hired a van

    I have been renting vans for a while as I did the same math's as section swept and couldn't make it add up (a van purchase). I used to pick up a van on a Saturday morning and drop it off on a Sunday evening, however that company doubled its prices so I went elsewhere and the other hire companies require you to drop the van off on a Monday morning which is a pain for me as I work away during the week and I'm normally away well before the hire shop opens. I've noticed a few people using citreon berlingos at trials (The cars not the van) so I've gone halfers on one of them with my old man as you can use them like a car when you dont need to transport a bike. You can take them to a tip as well (which you cant with a van where I live) . I reckon in a couple of years I'll have spent the same as hiring so I bit the bullet and bought one. As a BTW a way to decrease the cost of van hire is to buy your own excess insurance costs a lot less than the hire company.
