    Sold my 2004 sherco 290 :cry.... great bike, tough as nails.
    I already miss it very much, though when I buy that 2006 Raga I am looking at the love for my Sherco may fade :evil

    Last ride on the Sherco (March 3rd 2013)

    How do you find the ossa? I also have a 2011 and love it, especially with the 9v start system. Will you be doing any ATA or CVMG trials?

    I was at the St George trial last fall (spectator) and the owner told me he was going to sell it.Took almost a year to sell one of my bikes so i could buy this one.(i'm only allowed 3) I'll try to get in a few events along with my tracktime.

    The ossa importer runs excellent practice sessions throughout the summer if you need somewhere to ride between trials, Wednesday evenings and weekends, excellent place, excellent group to ride with

    Didn't have time to do the video tell today. Had a good time with some friends, and even had a new guy looking to try out trials with us, was lots of fun.

    So are grips extremely hard to install on all trials bikes, or just this 92 GT25? Or maybe the Renthal grips are slightly undersized. It took A LOT of effort getting the throttle side on. I even tried air, which has always worked before. But man that was an extremely tight fit. Yes I made sure I was using the correct grip on the throttle side haha.

    I always use spray paint. Whatever color I have, even clear. Just spray in the grip slides right on and sticks like glue.

    This is the picture i meant to post. You can see at the end of the grip how stretched it is. I think this bike has a really fat throttle tube LOL.

    Most likely, "someone" placed the left grip on the right grip side, they have different inside diameter on grips for motorcycles. I have done this on purpose ONE time, when I didnt have a right side grip, but needed to go right now.

    I am very sensitive on thickness of grips, I cannot run the thick ones, my arms pump too fast, I get charlie horses. when you have the grips on correctly, they should be same sizes, I can't for the life of me guess what else it can be, the throttle tubes should all be the same, I guess you can't tell or prove it without a donor or a spare tube to test the theory.

    I personally haven't used the Renthals grips, my dad likes them, got to have the ones with little to none of the "thumb flange" or whatever it is called... I got these new, fat, super soft "pro-grips," that I cannot get to stop twisting on the left grip, the glue on throttle grip stuck nicely, but the left grip, even with triple safety-wiring, it still rotates on the bars... I'm more than half pissed we cannot get Hebo grips anymore? Least my supplier tells me so.
