  1. Gave my 04 Beta 250 a full overhaul two weeks ago. Part of this overaul involved re-packing the silencer. I have allways used the roll type packing but this time decided to try the loose stuff. I have done two competitions on the bike since and the whole charector of the bike has changed. It doesn't seem to have the power in the low gears and seems to rev out too easily. Hills which I would have ridden in second gear I am now riding in third because it would rev out and I wouldn't be able to get to the top. The bike sounds crisp but I am wodering if I have re-packed it too tight. Any advice would be appreciated.
  2. Kay and Dai Bedford run Merthyr. Tel 01685350798. Buy a copy of Trial and Moto X News and all the events are advertised at the back. The welshtrials.com site has a list of contact numbers etc. By the way, don't let the name confuse you, the Gwent Schoolboys isn't just for schoolboys.
  3. Merthyr is my club and they put on very good trials. I also regulary ride Dulais Valley, Neath, and Gwent Schoolboys. I haven't ridden any Pontypool trials yet but I am riding one of theirs this saturday so I will let you know. Like yourself, I returned to trials a year ago after a 15 year break and I have really enjoyed it. All the clubs are really friendly with lots of people willing to give you advice. All the clubs do an easy route to help get you back into it. welshtrials.com is a very good website too. Best of luck.
  4. It didn't cause any problms to the alloy. I would echo what the other guy said that tesco wouldn't sell any thing that would damage alloy as the majority of the people buying this product would have alloy wheels. I thought it was a really good product and faced with the rising costs of diesil / petrol, I will try aything to make my weekend activities cheaper.
  5. Bought some Tesco wheel cleaner spray the other day as I was sick of paying over inflated prices for degreasers such as 'muc off' and 'proclean'. Whilst these degreasers are very efective, they cost a small fortune to buy unless you buy an oil drum's worth of the stuff and the price per litre comes down. How impressed I was when I sprayed tesco's
  6. 70:1 for me too with a semi-synhetic oil. Trial bikes seem to prefer semi-synthetic to fully synthetic.
  7. Hi there Phone up Lampkins on 01535655970. They offer an exchange service. I don't think you will get your old shock back as you will probably get the last persons shock who sent theirs in for exchange. I don't think it is cheap as I seem to remember a figure around
  8. Trialscast make a nice cast aluminium one. I bought one for my 04 Beta Rev 250. It is plastic coated too and looks really robust. Cost about
  9. Hi there Do you use the light clutch tuner oil or the ultra light ? regards gareth
  10. Hi there. I have been looking at the Beta motor website after finnally being able to download adobe reader. I can only find the diagram of the 07 beta rev 250cc. Yes you are right, it does only show one washer. There does seem to be another washer behind the basket but as I didn't take out the basket I don't think this is it. Is the 07 beta engine pretty idenetical to the 04 model. It does look it. Cheers for your help. It has been very usefull. regards. gareth
  11. Thanks for the advice. I spoke to Mr Lampkin on the phone today and he said that some beta's came with two washers and some with one. The washers as you said were in between the pressure plate and the bearings. They are of different sizes. I have put the larger one nearest to the bearing and the second slightly smaller one closest to the pressure plate. The clutch works fine and I just don't know whether I should pull out one off these washers. The biggest one is the same diameter as the bearing and sits flush on it. What do you think I should do ?

  14. Beta Rev 250 clutch assembly. I have just fitted a new clutch to my 04 beta rev 250. It had been really stiff changing gears and after consultation with Mr Lampkin he advised me to change the plates. This I did and the gear selection is a lot smoother. It doesn't take an hour now to get it in neutral either. But whilst changing the clutch I found two very thin steel spacers / washers which fitted in between the cover of the clutch basket and the roller type bearing on the spindle. These don't appear to be factory issue but I have fitted them as I found them and the clutch appears to be fine. Does anybody know whether they should be there or not ? I apologise if my description is a bit poor but I don't know what the proper name for such parts are. Also, if someone has access to a diagram of the clutch assembly for my bike I would I would be gratefull of any help. regards. Gareth
