The last year the 4rti has been completely ignored while I've been riding the new GasGas. Since the Ute Cup is quickly approaching, I dusted off the Montesa, gave her 3 kicks and she came to life and purred like a kitten.

I'd forgotten how much I like about the 4rti until riding it this past weekend. It rides completely different from the GG. In some ways better and in other ways, not so much. Regardless, I can't wait to get to the mountains and never even think about touching a carb. Well, I might think about it a little while sipping a margarita and making fun of my campmates tinkering with their carbs.

I tried something different today on my 4RT. I took the gearing back to stock!

I had a 44 tooth rear but just wasn't getting the mo I wanted going over stuff. So back on went the 41. So far I'm happy. I little fast in the technical stuff but I guess I'll have to get better with my clutch hand.

Anyone else have thoughts on the 4RT's gearing?

I just went back to stock also. Since I was new to trials when I got the Montesa, the low gearing worked best for my skill level...it slowed things down a bit. After spending 1.5 yrs on the Montesa and 1 yr on the GasGas, I now prefer the stock gearing.

I run mine REALLY low, 9/42 gearing. I found it much better for the super-tight turns, especially on a hillside. No issues getting up obstacles, but then again I do little poooosy obstacles in my class (those are 'bout all I can do anyway ). If I need more rear-wheel speed (long uphill climbs for example) I just upshift.

I may regret going back to stock gearing at the high elevation of the Ute Cup. But, its an easy swap back to lower gearing if that's the case. I expect the stock gearing will be better on the 20+ mile loop though.
