I just figured that pipe cost three times what you paid for the bike.
No need for the pipe Brewtus, get the 280 kit, shave the head and advance the timing, put a Keihn on, and lighten the flywheel. Or any combo of the mods. Really wakes it up! Makes a lot more power at high altitude than a stock bike has at sea level. At my 800' altitude, it's just plain fun.
Man, if I could find a 280 kit I'd do it in a heartbeat. I'm jazzed that S3 now has replacement piston and ring kits for these, and now this Ti pipe!!
And that pipe is SOOOOO sexy....
Just think...if you buy a TRS you get that sexy pipe for free.
EVER notice most inmates on this moved on to other bikes.
If @Brewtus bought and rode a modern bike, would he still be Brewtus? I think not.
Brewtus has a 4RT, doesn't he?
Yes he has a 4RT.
Hey folks first post here and have just finished reading this whole thread, gained lots of good info already,
From UK but live in Thailand and have just picked up this 2000 RTL250, my first foray into trials but looking forward to it, PO had done a bit of work to it including shock linkage bearings, fork seals, chain, sprockets, etc etc.
Been reading a lot on clutching and different oils to use, I can't get the elf HTX740 as its just not available here in Thailand likewise with most of the other recommended oils and was wondering if I get the mitani clutch do I still need to use same oils or is there a wider range I can use?
I work overseas also with a lot of guys from the UK who are regularly travelling back and forward so most parts I can get from UK and get the guys to hand carry for me if I need to but don't think your allowed to carry oils on a plane or I would get them to bring me a few bottles of the HTX740...
Congratulations. Great find.
My 06 4RT used regular Honda transmission oil for a long time, when the Elf was not available in the US. Worked fine.
And yes, if you change to dimpled clutch plates, you can use a wider range of oils.
I notice that your levers are missing the ball ends. Around here, they will not allow that in competition for safety reasons.
Any info on the exact honda transmission oil you used?
regarding the levers, I don't plan on doing any competing as no clubs anywhere close but still plan to get new levers.

Brewtus loves Trials, Brewtus loves Montesas, Brewtus loves 315s, and.....well, evidently Brewtus loves talking about himself in the 3rd person. Yes, I have a 4RT, along with 8 other Montesas. I see nifty 315 stuff out there, I post it, even for those who have "moved on".
Hope this is an appropriate place to ask this question; I recently found a 1998 315R for sale for $2000? Seems to be in good shape and this would be my first trials bike.
Does the price sound reasonable for a good machine of this year?
I purchased a 1998 315R last year in very good shape for $2200, so if yours is in good shape and needs nothing like mine I would say yes. This is also my first trials bike and i absolutely love it. they are not the lightest or most powerful but still way more capable than I am. Now get out and ride!!!!!!
Thank you very much for the info; I guess I better jump on it then! Seems like an affordable way to get into trials riding. Thanks again.
A mint looking last-couple of-years 315R would tempt me greatly if I had only one trials bike to own. Those parts no longer produced that look like more standard parts but aren't (example: the rear sprocket) are a concern. In that case maybe a mint 315R engine to toss into a 4RT frame
Like this one:
I'm amazed that @Brewtus hasn't done this!?!
@Brewtus doesn't have a 4RT donor. If I did, the forks, wheels, and brakes would go on Roxy's Rat.
