    Kickstart Question

    No Dabba that is the bolt that holds the kick start onto the shaft. Beta do not list this bolt/screw that holds it together at the knuckle where the spring and ball bearing are separately.
  2. The two bikes were stolen from a garage in High Wycombe over the night of 1st October 2013. Bike details: 1. 1967 250cc Greeves Anglian - silver with red tank. Engine No. 161FC780 Frame No. 24THSA278 2. 1994 250 GasGas - red. Registration L 299 MJO Engine & Frame Nos. VTRGG099325931608 Owner Pete Hawes is particularly attached to the Greeves as he bought it new and rode it for about 40 years before retiring and it is now ridden by his son. If you know or hear anything please call: John Tel: 01628 473509 Mob: 07917617448
  3. Hi Peter If you thinking about changing - Go 250 - will do anything you can manage and maybe the gearing might suit better. But like any bike it just has to suit you!
  4. Thanks very much - Hopefully be there
  5. Thanks - just been to the French WTC and cannot make the SSDT this year
  6. Could anyone out there tell me if this trial is being run this year and a date?
  7. Had Wulf boots for a year - Found them very comfortable and good value although not very waterproof as all other boots I have used through the years.
  8. Sam Haslam entered on a JLI Beta 300 -Thats interesting?
  9. You need a December copy of The Sporting Motorcyclist or failing that if you message me I can let you have an e-mail address for the 'secretary'
  10. I've had Wulf trials boots since last year, worn them nearly every week, and have been very pleased with them.

    gear box oil

    I have found when refilling 400ml of ATF works best for clutch action and has not given any other problems. Maybe 450ml from empty.
  12. Is there a French World round this year? I cannot find any information anywhere.
  13. That would be the 'Haslemere Cup' Star Group trial. at Chapel Bank, Rake, West Sussex, GU33 7JJ. It will be signed of the B2070 (old A3) north of Rake. 10.30am Start. Not sure about entries on the day - probably. Ring John Sapsard 01420 473687
  14. Yes - Same here - Special thanks to Paul for finding and setting out some different sections to the normal.
  15. When you are one of the very best in the world?????

    Wulf sport

    Bought Wulf boots recently, seem very good and decent value although not waterproof I've never found any yet that are.
  17. I have run tubeless tyres with a tube for years at low pressures on a number of different bikes with no problem. The only thing I should add is that this is on the middle route.

    Beta Evo Gearbox oil

    I think it was Putoline GM Dexron IID

    Beta Evo Gearbox oil

    After buying a 2010 with the clutch 'hanging on' I took the plates out and washed them in petrol and then changed to ATF Dextron as recommended for Gas-Gas. There is a real improvement but still almost impossible to change gear at standstill with engine running.
  20. So is that the end of it then? Barry
