    Imperial bolt question...

    Imperial bolt identification: Well if it is powerful and down right scary, it is probably a Darth Vader bolt

    Sherco's - Which One To Buy Or Any Known Faults

    unfortunately I cannot locate any pictures of the gusset, but if memory serves me correctly it was basically just a small triangle that I welded to the mounting tab and frame. But can't remember if it was on the outside edge of the tab or inside edge. End cap of silencer should fit inside the tube portion of the silencer, and then held on by rivets. I have not had that bike for quite some time, so I will not be able to get pictures. 😞

    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.

    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
