    Ty175

    Sadly I must admit to that occurring when I pulled the clutch basket from the 2000 Sherco I had, but I did buy the correct tool as well as new basket..............

    Keihin Carb to Airbox Seal?

    I have used a heat gun on low (doesn't take very long) to soften the rubber boot for my GasGas. My 2003 originally had the Dellorto with the rubber adapter and the rubber boot was a bit deformed, I have a Kehin now and that rubber boot occasionally likes to go back to the deformed shape instead of round. A little warm up and viola good to go.

  5. Actually I was being serious, I did not see the observers hand signal a 5....which is pretty much how trials has always been marked with or without the use of a whistle. and with the rider continuing I was not positive if a 5 was actually designated. I am not familiar with all the reasons that a whistle is sounded, so far I only have heard it used as a way of signalling the rider they may enter the section. I do appreciate the clarification that a 5 was indeed awarded for dislodging the marker
  6. at the 5:40 mark, the observer resets the ribbon end post. Does that mean the rider received a 5? many rule books have a rule similar to "observer having to reset a marker or boundary results in a failure"

    new to gasgas bikes

    The method works for all GasGas Pro engine bikes, there are a couple variations of the starting method, but they all have the same thing in common. DO NOT stab at the kickstarter, DO NOT just kick it like mad. What I do for my bike: Be "on top" of the bike, basically on the pegs (with bike on stand, leaning against a tree, your car/garage whatever) Take up little bit of slack in kickstarter, when resistance is felt this is the starting point Kick downward with authority, but smoothly. when cold, choke on. when warm choke off Note: throttle is not used My Old BAGG (2003 Old Bad Ass GasGas) starts first or second kick using this method.

    Does more sticker give more HP?

    Unfortunately there is a paradox about the ability of stickers to increase HP of the Trials bike. Yes, stickers increase the power of the Trials bike, but the additional weight of the sticker negates that power. So you pretty much end up with the same power output in the end, but the bike will look totally cool

    Front wheel removal

    Not sure if this is your first GasGas, starting technique is important Fresh Fuel support bike - on a stand, lean against tree etc. be "on top" of the bike take up slack in kickstarter kick down and through with authority (quick stabs at the kickstarter tends to break things)

    Front wheel removal

    Probably didn't need to be quite that tight. I have the old style with the axle threading directing into the fork tube, I usually tighten mine by hand to be pretty snug and then a couple moderate whacks with the rubber mallet on the Allen key and good to go.

    Front wheel removal

    Depending on what year your bike is: You will need to remove the bolt that holds the shaft in place. Or you will need to unthread the shaft from the opposite fork tube ** both photos from Ebay listings bymdyztri and trialsbikebreakersuk respectively **

    stupidity prize?

    I have done the lanyard thing a few times, On an old bike of mine I had a sticker "Turn the gas on dummy", this would be due to forgetting to do so many times. @biffsgasgas has a habit of forgetting socks......... good thing I usually bring a few pair..... mostly washed. A friend has a Montesa that after washing it would not start, and if it did it wouldn't run very long. Text message advice back and forth, turns out he had an airbox cover made to keep water out during washing. Yep, he forgot to remove the cover. I split the cases on my GasGas, upon re-assembly I had a leftover thrust washer. Luckily it was for the kickstarter and I just had to remove the clutch cover to put it in the right spot.
