I would leave the final exhaust tip restrictor on. Removing it makes the bike much louder and only adds 1/4 hp at full throttle. Or install a DB killer.

Question Hmmm...

This is some good info, I need to check if the intake restrictor is still in mine. I got mine from the first owner without lights and don't think he ever did any modifications.

Seeing also that I was in Seattle when I picked it up and now live in Boise it might help it run a bit more like it did down at sea level.

On a side note I have been thinking of adding a headlight back to the bike for the occasional evening trail ride... If I do (still considering it) would this mod let me keep the trials mapping and have lights?

If you use the factory wiring harness (which will also require the switches) it will.

Just pull the pin at the ECU connector and you will be good to go.

Thanks for the response. Guess I need to figure out if I really want a head light now.

You could also just cut the right wire in the wiring loom you put on for the lights.... We can help you with this.

Rear Brakes

Yes, I had the same thing happen on mine, except I noticed the extra drag before it caught on fire. It was seriously hot though. This was on the second loop of an event right after I got my 4RT this summer.

Fortunately, I was able to back off on the stop bolt allowing pedal to come back up a little higher. The brake pedals sometimes get bent in against the clutch cover so that the pedal does not come up fully leaving the pads in contact with the disc, creating lots of heat.

I see that you ride up at Walker Valley. There are several guys in Puget Sound Trialers club that have 4RT's. You guys ride any PST events?

Rode back to truck and put a bit more slack in the pedal and bled off some fluid. Seemed beter, any one else have this happen to their 4RT?

Just a bit before I moved to ID I picked up Higgins 07 4RT and then took it to Straddleline this year... (miss it out there already) I will have to try and make it out for at least 1 event next year if I can...

Hi Captian
I'm still around, but don't have much free time to ride these days between work and baby. I am planning to hit walker tomorrow on the ol' montesa. PM me if anyone's interested.

just a short 4RT Repsol '06 question: here is one for sale, but what do I need to look for?

any specific things that makes it a standard or Repsol (besides the stickers)?

what about the '06 model? ok, or should I go for a newer 4RT? what are the main differences with '07,'08,'09 etc?

thanks for your short and fast feedback
