It is red.
It does look like a new swingarm and for reasons I can't fathom a new clutch cover (although it does look easier to clear the frame for removal).
I like red.
I've moved on in my tiny little world from GasGas, but my hat's off to them. They are sponsoring well and getting significant more mileage on the design, which some bemoaned BEFORE GG went under as 'dated.' Nice to see some changes for `19, but the fact is all the trials bikes are very close to the same pattern, with stylistic differences and a very few notable technical differences.
GasGas surfaced and have gotten more mileage out of the 2002 Pro form. They have a viable eBike and managed to put an electric starter on one model.
And then there is the fact that they remain red....
Still no spark arrestor.
The Europeans don't know what a spark arrestor is. That little gem of terminal ignorance is a U.S. speciality.
Actually some pretty substantial revisions by trials bike standards.
The externally replaceable crank bearings are welcome as are many of the other changes. nice bike.
The new clutch cover is cool. Wait and see what is going on with the bearings. The bearings always lasted long until they started being cheap about it. Nice looking bike as always.
+1 on the clutch cover. Although making it easy for me to take off and put back on the one time I need to switch the preload ring from 1 to 3 isn't exactly a huge win, I'll take it Kevlar clutch plates too, which means it's basically a complete Xiu setup now.
The new crank bearing thing scares me, but hey, they're easy to replace now when they go kaput, so there's that.
The crank bearing change will pay off IMO. Tron knows what he's doing.
If they had sparkys, the couldn't get them through customs.... They are closed course, competition only bikes to the Feds!
I have a 2015 txt race 300.Does anyone know of any problems I need to watch for.New to trials but I like my red bike.
No. Just ride it. I put 300 hours on my '17 (no real changes from yours). It's still going strong, sold to a new rider. Just go over the bike every now and then and tighten things up and you're good to go: triple clamp bolts, skid plate, bodywork, calipers, rotors, etc.
I had a 15 250 Race. They are excellent bikes. No issues with mine.
Umm, I put about 30 hrs on mine.
The `15 had main bearing problems, but if it has lasted this long it is all good.
Hate to say, the new ones are not much better. When they work they are great, but I have seen many new bikes still with shit hydraulics. That is why I run a 2005 complete AJP front brake set up on my `new` bike.
