    my GasGas starting procedure - from cold choke on - from hot no choke Lean bike against appropriate item (tree, truck, garage, etc) OR have bike supported by skidplate (on stand, on a log, on the neighbors annoying bratty kid......) Stand on the footpegs Bring kickstarter down gently until you feel resistance From that location kick through with a forceful fluid motion - gotta get it to spin up quickly, but don't "stab" at it NO throttle Mine starts 1 or 2 kicks 99.9% of the time

    In the video he says the "off road" bikes will be based on the KTM platform. I understood this to be Enduro and Motocross. Whenever Trials is mentioned it is specifically called out as Trials.
  3. No new class, The best are the best and should be celebrated as such. World Trials is entertaining and amazing and does very little to nothing to bring more riders to the sport. (as far as I have seen) To even the playing field: Keep the dreaded minimum weight rule (make it realistic so that a standard production bike meets it) Bikes used in World Trials Competition MUST be a production bike - only "tweaks" available are existing aftermarket bits that are available to the public. and if those two don't cut it maybe cap the number of tweaks allowed, so the rider will have to choose between greatest suspension and maximum horsepower or some such. Just thoughts, I am not exactly adamant they will work, my mind can be changed. Discuss

  5. spray carb cleaner around the base gasket to see if it is sucking in air.

    Won't rev?

    check your ground, I helped a guy get his Sherco running the day after he washed it. He rode it for practice, washed it, and the next day at the event it wouldn't run. Cleaned the ground attachment at the frame and all was right again.
  8. those I ride with keep trying beer and liquor............. not sure how effective it is. We shall continue further testing
  9. within MOTA (Michigan Ontario Trials Association) we have 6 Clubs, each club hosts 2 events per season. For a rider to be awarded season championship points they must work 2 events per season. This is how we get the majority of our observers, the members of the club will set up, run, observe their 2 events for the season. and then you ride the other 10. Season championship standings are determined by your best 8 rides. It seems to work pretty good. But you do not have to be a member of one of the clubs to ride the events. You will get a trophy that day (provided you finish in the top 3) but you will not be awarded season championship points for the year end awards.

  11. I use a tree, rock or a log.......... if none of those are available, I have leaned it against a buddy's bike. Or just lay it on the ground, that's her happy place anyway. Spends enough time there
  12. Reed valve is located between the engine and the carb. the valve portion is inserted into the engine. While the Keihin carb in my opinion is better than the Dellorto PHBL, the Dellorto is NOT a bad carb. as with any carb, keep it clean so it can do its job properly
  13. I believe the pressure plate bolts are 6mm - 12 point

    My RatTY 175 arrived like this: And it now Looks like This: There will be tweaks that happen for quite some time yet, but she can be ridden and enjoyed. And that was the goal.
  16. Good luck, hope it is sorted quickly
  17. I think you may have shift drum issues, if that is the problem, this will require splitting the cases. that pin looks a bit like part no. 13 in the photo below. source: http://lewisportusa.com/manuals/gasgaspartsman/04partscomplete.pdf
  18. I think you may have broken the Top Hat, (gear selection spring unit) the cross bar is sacrificial and breaks before the shaft. Just remove clutch cover and clutch basket (one bolt in center) and you should see it
  19. RatTY 175 runs! getting much closer to being able to take for a ride.
  20. A local rider has one, well local (ish), he rides our events. anyway back to topic at hand, he has stated that he has has quite a bit of mud accumulate on the top of the swing arm but never in the sides. The day I got the look at the bike was an event my club was hosting and it was a mud fest, and sure enough I did not see any mud in the sides of the swing arm. As for the potential boot damage............. I don't know one way or the other
  21. RatTY 175 is starting to look like a trials bike, not exactly a pretty one. But some of the ugly ones are the best ride.
