If you are talking about the tranny then just pull the clutch in mid air and right after you land gas it and let out the clutch!

I gave a review of my Thumpstar 120 on this site a few months ago when it was new. I have not had not any major bad issues with it. I had to adjust the rear brake and went one larger pilot jet. The bike starts, shifts, and runs well. I will say I haven't had it at the track much yet, but have trail ridden it and practice wheelies on it regularly. Once the temps drop below 97F daily I will start taking it to the track more. The jumps I have done in 3rd were fine though.

Could you please let me know why you say thumpstar is rubbish as I am the importer for Africa and any feed back is good we work closely with the factory on improving the bike thanks.

i got my 05 thumpstar 120cc 2 weeks ago....... my bikes has no problems yet....... took it on some BMX tracks, i've done a 15ft jump and nothing broke yet, but one common problem is the rear brake locking up...... but it is easy to fix, just adjust the free play. so tell the people at the factory this problem, as many people has to adjust the free play them self.

The thumpstar is terrible when it comes to landing after a jump however if you replace the rear shock and on the front forks...replace the springs and put in 20wt oil and you'll be good to go.

The SDG suspension is great right out of the box.

I rode a 05 thumpstar 120cc and bottom that thing out while jumping a table top. As for the brakes replace the fluild or if you want to be cheap....just bleed the brakes some.

i've got the new'est 05 version thumpstar 120cc...... its got better rear shockers with rebound setting and stiff spring...... i know this because my friend got his thumpstar- 2 months ago, and this does not have the rebound setting........ plus my one has blue aluminum engine dress up kit, looks well trick up. as I said no problems with my bike yet....... if you are thinking on buying a pit bike i recommend the new higher spec 05 thumpstar 120.
