    Hi there

    I think that was on Jim Snell's website but he's no longer a Gasgas dealer anymore so alot of the info has disappeared.

    GasGas newbie questions

    Answers to Questions 1 & 3 I use Putoline Trials pro 70ml in 5litres petrol, that's 70:1. Standard sparkplug BPR5ES I doubt you'll notice any difference except for the prices.
  4. Yes I have, we were in the same class at school 🤣🤣
  5. I'm in Hazel-Grove, Man17 organise the "Dead Easy Trials" which are especially to introduce Newcomers, Kids and New & Vintage machines and get everybody out on their bikes.
  6. I'm probably not far from you, in which case I recommend you join a club like Man17 or MaccTrials.👍
  7. Does the weld all the way round like they have put a full disc on? If so I would tidy it up and paint it. It looks a good repair and more substantial than standard. 👍
  8. I wouldn't do that, You need a 2 bike trailer.
  9. This is a cut & paste from this link; https://en.vindecoder.pl/VTRGG280210022861 Entered VIN VTRGG280210022861 Corrected VIN VTRGG280210022861 Squish VIN VTRGG28010 WMI VTR VIS identifier N/A VDS GG280210 Year identifier 1 Serial number 022861 Make Gas Gas Model year 2001 Manufactured in Spain

    Rear Shock Bump stop

    You don't need to do anything with the rebound screw until after you get the bottom mount off. The screw can only be removed afterwards. I didn't need to get it very hot it's more a case heating it quickly to expand the aluminium before the steel rod and it breaks the "loctite" on the threads. The o-ring on mine was okay but I changed it anyway.

    Rear Shock Bump stop

    No gas or oil came out ?
  12. If it still uses gear oil then keep a check on the breather near the front sprocket. it can only blow it out, leak it or burn it.
  13. The pre-Pro models ran 50:1 as the fuel mix lubed the main bearings. The GG has a few mistakes in it. Pro models use the gearbox oil to lubricate the main bearings so less is required in the fuel mix. I run mine at 70:1 with a good synthetic 2T oil and its never fouled a plug.
  14. I remove the liner and wash it with hair shampoo, If you intend to machine wash it then you should put it in a pillow case and tie it up, still gets washed but helps protect from getting damaged.

    The damper screw on mine has always been wound fully out as well. I couldn't tell if my old rubber had ever been cut down but its compressed and gone rock hard. Exactly like you said "IS knackered" While the spring and the rubber were removed, I checked the damping was consistent through the total length off the stroke which was spot on.
