Sammy had set Pro lines just for them. Nathan rode with them, although Karl and Brian ride Pro in the NATC, and Nathan rides Expert. Nathan did a very good job of not getting totally whupped by two pros. Brian won, followed by Karl and Nathan. It was fantastic to have these guys come down and ride with us.

That last picture of Karl is an injustice. It was more than a 10 ft jump and that was a 12 ft hole. Wow the fat guy on a real montesa sure had fun.

I continued going through my new to me 4rt. So far it looks like the bike was put away without much thought after each ride. So far I've found the following:
The air filter was full of pine needles
the swing are bearing were dry and loose requiring new link plates
the head bearing were too tight
the fork oil was shiny silver
chain tensioner arm was loose and worn beyond repair
Rear wheel has a flat spot that is likely not fixable, but still rideable
rear rotor is slightly bent
side stand extends too far forward
throttle was sticky and didn't spring back closed
drain plug missing from the airbox
rear wheel bearings knotchy

Here's what I've done so far
ziptie stitched the cracked fender and drilled a relief hole to stop the crack
cleaned the air filer and airbox
changed fork oil
lube and tensioned head bearing
removed fork spring and rear shock to investigate custom wound stiffer springs


Things left to do
Change engine and trans oil
check valves
flush coolant
replace chain tensionor and rear wheel bearings
straighten rotor?
lube swingarm bearings
lube linkage
reinstall shock/spring
bleed brakes/clutch
figure out taller bars

Hopefully my parts arrive on Monday and I can get everything buttoned up and read to ride by next weekend.

Last week we had this:



Some kind of tranny problem.





Last night Lineaway came over and helped me put it all back together. It was a long night, but we were determined to get it all done. At least I was!

Thanks Bob!!



A few "issues" remained but it seems like all is good now! I am so stoked that it all worked out and that there are guys like Bob out there willing to share their knowledge and time!!

If you didn't ride it like such a Pro, you would not have these issues....


Glad to see you have it back together. You owe Bob a case of beer!!

I installed a new rectifier and thermostat to my Sherco today.
And last sunday I replaced the fork seals.
Now I finally have a fully functional trials bike
She's ready to ride tomorrow even though there may be 4 or 5 inches of snow.
Oh well. It will still be a fun day.

Motojunky, I sold the Scorpa to a good friend so I'd always have a riding buddy. He's taking the picture. New carb and it spins like a top. NVTS

I don't actually have a trials bike, so I use my XT225 for one

This video has some stuff that might interest you guys.

Log crossing craziness starts at 1:35. We found a set of three logs in a row and had to try them out. There is also a nice ravine crossing to accidental wheelie with 360 pirouette


I'll quit crapping up yer trials thread now
