  1. with the idler gear broken, be sure to check over the "Bart" gear on the kickstart shaft for damage as well.

    Wheel Compatibility

    I believe it was a 2015. Just be sure to use your spacers that are original to your bike on the new wheel.

    Wheel Compatibility

    I fitted a new style wheel (2-piece spoke) to my 2003 GasGas. It was used (much cheaper than new) and came off another GasGas. Fit right on, just had to use the spacers that were original to my 2003. No muss, no fuss.

  5. Can you get a clamp of some sort in there. Maybe a small version of this. one side on the bolt threaded area the other side on the frame next to the bolt hole. Push the bolt back toward the shock, eventually having enough bolt shank showing to grab with pliers. this is of course assuming you can get the nut off or cut off the nut.
  6. In defense of @nigel dabster his continual smart mouth jibs ARE his Trade mark.......... in every forum.

    Also take a look at the cover in the area around the kickstart to make sure the cover did not also crack during the "event".
  9. Boots with a good steel shank in the sole is really good for protecting the foot as well
  10. If this happened at any point in history other than now, the responses would be totally different. So let me give a different type of feedback: Yes, proper landing technique is key when doing drop offs, thank you for pointing out one of the possible negatives of doing a drop off incorrectly. heal up quick, but take the time necessary to do so. Land with rear wheel first seems to be the best way, and as you said have the feet more forward on the pegs so that the ankle does not "dip down" when landing
  11. 80:1 seems to be the normal ratio for the majority of modern trials bikes. Also with GasGas Pro engines the crank bearings are lubricated with the gearbox oil, not the premix. Premix is only lubricating the piston and con-rod bearings
  12. do you know what the previous owners were running for an premix ratio? Possible they were running a high(er) amount of oil which would foul the packing sooner than 80:1 OR it's possible the crankshaft seal has gone bad and is sucking in gearbox oil.
  13. Yep, had a few fires in the silencer of my 2003 300 GasGas. Got hot enough it started melting the outer decorative plastic up by the airbox. Packing looks horrible too
  14. @mbeers6 sorry for taking so long to respond, bike maintenance has taken a back seat lately. I tore down the dog bones today. As you can see in the the VXB photo of the bearing there is no seal. Here is a photo of the same bearing installed in my dog bones. (Still a bit dirty, but hopefully can see it clear enough) note: it is a caged bearing and there is a rubber seal, I "persuaded" the original GasGas seals to be in place. It is a very tight fit and the seal does stick out probably a half mm from the dog bones. but after install in the bike, they don't stick out anymore. SQUISH!! ?
