  1. Здравствуйте! А не помните мануал на RTX был  в английской версии или русской? И покрышки какие были Китай?

      Hi there. I can't remember any manual to be honest. I remember it came with a parts list with prices as I had to order a new mudguard.


      As for tyres I just can't remember I'm sorry.

      По одним рассказам спортсменов тех лет  пишут что стояли Китайские покрышки. Другие пишут что в Британии стояли Pirelli. На RTX выступали только дети? Или взрослые тоже? Как мотоцикл показывал себя на соревнованиях? 

  2. Sorry I didn't make any record of the vin plates. For the record though, my Rtx was a direct replacement for my aging Yamaha ty175 which I had had since a schoolboy. I felt as a pure trials bike it rode a lot better than the ty175 however I was always worried about the longevity of the engine. It certainly didn't feel like a 88kg bike to ride. It felt lighter. The modern plastics were very aesthetically pleasing and complimented the all in one seat / tank unit. I know they were planning on bringing out a mono shock version. Did it ever go into production?
  3. This is me on my Rtx 125 in 1998. Excuse the photo quality as it is a photo of a photo. For some reason my dad developed the photo in black and white. The bike was red with chrome frame and yellow rtx logo. I hope this helps.
  4. I had a new rtx 125 back in 1998. It cost £999 new and I'm sure I bought it from a company called 'off road uk'. It rode ok but the fibreglass plastics were unforgiving to impacts. The frame was chromed and quite attractive. I remember the steel rims and drum brakes. There was also some odd adjuster on the clutch casing which kept coming loose. There were a few articles in tmx when it was launched. It was a fun and cheap bike. I have a few photos of me riding it that my dad took. Mine was red.
  5. Thanks for replying. Yes the pod k8 braces look a good bit of kit. I decided to order the mobius x8 in the end. Managed to get them for £373 so pleased with the price. I'm hoping they do the job. What persuaded me to buy them was the wire system which tightens the brace behind the patella. Very unique as most braces only attach above and below the knee cap with straps. Time will tell how they perform.
  6. Hi there. I've worn a donjoy armour knee brace on my left leg following a trials crash ten years ago leading to me having ACL and MCL reconstruction. The brace is very effective at protecting ligaments but doesn't protect my knee cap or shin area. You can buy an add on guard which would do this but they are expensive and would still leave my right leg totally unprotected. I recently planted my right knee and tibia on a rock and luckily escaped with mild swelling and bruising but it made me think about further protection. I don't want to be on an operating table again. I don't compete anymore and simply ride for fun so not worried particularly about bulkiness. I've been looking at the Motocross knee braces as they also act as a knee cap and shin guard. I'm looking at buying a pair of mobius x8 knee braces. They have good reviews. Has anybody here used them or something similar ?
  7. I had the Dave cooper van rack on my Freelander 2. Worked well. The van rack has a longer square box section coming out from the bracket which is housed on the towbar. I use the same rack on my Peugeot Boxer van now. Very well made.
  8. Thanks for that. Jitsie adjuster is new so will check that. What is the standard needle position (counted from the top)?
  9. My 2012 beta Evo 125 seems to idle a bit erratically at times. Filter is regularly cleaned, carb recently cleaned, plug is new, jitsie idle adjuster fitted, air screw 2 turns out. Basically when cold it idles fast which I would expect then after it warms up idles well and appropriately. Then all of a sudden it starts idling a bit faster then after a bit of a ride the idle goes very slow to the point it dies. I often find it stalls and I'm convinced it has a bit of a bog from closed throttle to open. Could this be the idle jet ? It then seems to change from idling perfectly, to idling fast or dieing. The plug br7es is new and I often find my plug is carbonised but not oily wet. Any ideas what could be causing this idling ? Could it be the floats need a fiddle with ? Float height adjustment seems a bit of a black art to me. Does anybody have a recommendation for the needle clip position. I ride at normal altitude in the UK.
  10. I will bear that in mind. Certainly when I bought the bike it ran with a text book tan colour plug. However since I stripped and rebuilt the carb and sorted out the cold engine bogging it is now black. I'll see what it's like after my next ride at 2 turns out.
  11. Hi there. I noticed a few black drops on my garage floor. Thought it was transmission oil at first but when I sniffed it I realised it was exhaust gunk. Thought it would be coming from where the front pipe meets the silencer but when I looked the underside of the silencer had a small covering of black gunk on it and some had dropped on the floor. I cleaned up the area and fired up the bike to see where it was coming from as I couldn't see a hole. Eventually a tiny drop formed and got bigger. The hole must be tiny and must be a pin hole. Can't see any crack. Ive just got the packing to repack the silencer and I was wondering how I could fix the hole without getting it TIG welded. I was thinking about drilling a 2mm hole where the pin hole is and neatly plug it with JB weld. It could then be sanded flush. Do people think this would work ? It's not a particularly hot part of the exhaust system. Oddly no gases seem to be coming out if it. Ive also leaned out the air screw a bit. It was 1.5 turns out and I've now moved it to 2 out. Plug was blackish too. This area is probably the lowest point of the silencer to likely to pool with gunk if over rich I guess. I've included a photo of area.
  12. Привет! Хотел бы пообщаться  по RTX. У вас есть он или был?. Имею много информации по этому триалу.
