  19. While I recently stayed in a small hamlet in Staffordshire , I had the pleasure to meet Maurice Arden , it wasn't long before the conversation came round to motorcycles, me being a young 54 yr old and only recently started riding trials , was amazed at Maurice's knowledge of trials in the 50s to present date , but his heart was with the classics . When the conversation came round to the attire of the modern trials outfits Maurice surprised me again telling me off the boots he used to produce , the Big John super cross , the Fenman dual purpose enduro and the Supertrack model , which he supplied the British trials team with Boots and Gloves for 14 yrs . Maurice informed me Mick Andrews won the Scottish more than once wearing the boots Maurice made. One of his promotional ploys was to tuck a new dry pair of his gloves into the bikes handlebars . Maurice also told me of a letter he received from the late Jim Sandiford thanking him for his support of the British ISDT team , also receiving correspondence from Ken Heanes and Mary Driver , Team manager and ACU Competitions secretary respectively. I was wondering if anyone out there ever owned any boots or still own , gloves or the Big John body belt Which Maurice produced , or any memories you would like to share , and hopefully I will be able to pass on your remarks to Maurice . It was a pleasure to meet such a Gentleman . Thanks for your time Dave Turner.
  20. Eh op I have just got a pro racing 250, people I know advise me to use ATF Dextrone 3 oil , but the dealer told me only use light oil . What is your preference and do you know what benefits one has over the other. Cheers Dave.
  21. Hello its me again what should I be looking for regarding Damage to Idle gear ?
  22. Well I've ordered new one just over £90 and they said they have heard of this happening but don't the cause, been advised just to place and all should be fine ? Don't worry will be looking at Idle gear .... Thanks for your help.....Keep them wheels turning
  23. Yes that may be the cause will find out when I take off the cover and inspect . What would you do with clutch cover attempt repair or buy new ?
  24. Just got back from a practice session and noticed oil on bash plate. After checking for loose bolts noticed clutch cover cracked near kick start and oil leaking through seal on kick start... Does anyone know wether it could be sealed on inside with E metal or epoxy resin ? Has this occurred with your bike and if so how did you cure it ? Or is the only option to buy a new replacement..... OUCH !
