You know, I think we've had this conversation already. Memory... the second thing to go.

Glad to hear that a new carb did the trick. Were you able to find OEM, and if so, where?

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
That's awesome - - - - looks (and sounds) like you guys had a great day!!!

Thanks!

I forgot to add that I am a big fan of trials. I lurk around the trials area a bunch. I just try to ride over things with my not-trials bike.

I got it from Ryan Young. Expensive, but the bike hasn't failed to run since; one kick fun machine. I'm headed to a Ryan Young school this weekend; I'm gonna get schooled! NVTS

Lunch Ride

I work from home occasionally. When I'm lucky, the weather is good and I get time for lunch. Today was one of those days. I cleared some sticker bushes recently and today was the first time I got to play in that little spot. The picture below shows one little turn I was fiddling with. The "section" started in the lower right, coming over the log to the left of the skinny tree. The log is just high enough to bump the skidplate. The tree forces you to lean the bike more left than you would want to to clear the bars. You then have to move right to get around the next skinny tree before making a full lock left up through the rotted remnants of a log. It is very greasy/slippery there. The big leaning tree at the top left again forces you to lean further left sooner than you would like to get the bar under it. It makes getting traction tricky. For scale, it's about a bike length from the log at the start to the dark slippery spot at the start of the left turn.

I tried this little deal ~20 times and wasn't able to pull it off. For the first 5-8 or so I didn't think I'd ever get it. Then the ground started to pack down and form a little berm which helped and it finally clicked. From then on it was easy. Funny how that works. It's also funny how easy it looks in the picture...

Well the 4rt is up and running. I took her out for a first ride Sunday in the snow at the local ORV area.


Tonight I adjusted the rear brake so I can actually use it. i should have checked that before leaving Sunday . I also swapped out the bars to something with a bit more rise than stock. I'm going to try the Protaper SE DRZ110 bend. It's pretty much the same as the renthal 6" bar, but slightly taller and just a touch narrower.

So what did you do with your Trials Bike today? Maintenance? Compete? Overhaul? Restore? Nothing? Post it here!



I'll start off. I dragged out my old 314 Montesa to get it ready for Trials Camping Silliness next year, and decided that the destroyed LH bar switch (that controlled the long-gone lighting system) had to go.




Yeah, I know the hillbillied choke lever is hideous. Gimmie time....





After only 27 minutes of wrestling, the lighting wiring harness was freed from the 314...




I did discover that I had a new 314 clutch cable hidden with some new Aprilla Climber cables I had lying around.....




The 'Prilla cables seem to match the 314 cables exactly. Hmmmm....I may have to replace the throttle and clutch cables with these. I mean after all, it's SO much easier to come up with Aprilla cables than Montesa cables....


The finished product.




I just noticed that the bars are bent. I'll deal with that next week.



After removing the radiator scoop to get access to the cables and wiring, I am now wondering if I should put it back on or go with the "stripped" look. What do you all think??


Nice late 70's Dodge in the background! Nice nike too

If you do keep that tank on, just switch the "a"and "i" around on the side cover and you'll be fine.
