    Finally! A 300

    My irc trials lasted about a 1/2 day . , when I noticed it being flat I seen the green slime coming from a small cut . Stuck my finger in the slice and it ripped open like a lady’s pantyhose . FWIW I never had issues with Dunlop trials tires as they are a little more robust
  2. The fact Kenda sponsors the knockout and many enduroX races and doesn’t sell a trials tire is likely the biggest reason for the no trails tire rule
  3. Been using tubliss for many years with soft type tires . Yes it can flat easy , consider most trials tires can be punctured very easy as they are so thin . Hot trials tire setup is the Dunlop as it’s a little more robust , but the pirelli is too stiff to get much advantage . The golden 216 x will cut far easier than the HB, but again I run low pressures on the x in all extreme conditions except for faster sections with baby head rocks ( almost sure to get a flat ) I keep the tire repair push in strings as they generally work good , and with slime in the tire you can see the puncture in an instant while mousse are great , in the world of soft tires hard mousse defeat the purpose , and drilling holes means replacing them far too often for my budget

    2019 limited edition RR 6 days

    Boano will campaign those at 6 days , and sell you the parts , but you will likely need to go to Italy to purchase a complete bike from their headquarters .

    Fixing dented pipes-- Air or Water method?

    Hydro force is a water pump and fittings made to repair 2 stroke pipes . You can order specific fittings fo different bikes and sizes . It was about $250 and works excellent . Honestly ,i doubt I will ever buy a pipe guard again . It also shows the pressure you are using , it varies but 400 lbs usually has removed any dents in my pipes , 500 and it’s starting to fail at the seals .when it does blow off it can shoot a few feet , but nothing like using air pressure
  7. Been using the golden fatties for a few seasons , originally they chunked ( older rubber compound) , but now they last extremely well . Shinko has a direct copy ( some say same mood and rubber ) for less $$. With the fatty I run tubliss at 8 lbs and have raised the folks in the clamps to offset the increased tire height .

    Spark Arrestor for Beta 300RR Race Edition

    Mesh spark arrestors in a 2 stroke are maintaince intensive as they gum and clog up . Far better to bite the bullet and get the turbine core style , pro circuit and fmf both need no maintaince until the need repacking .

    Chainsaw mounts

    That echo is over double the cost and a smaller bar length of the sthil 170 . And the 170 fits in my back pack,

    Chainsaw mounts

    I just just carry a saw in my backpack , run a small sthil , have a silky as well but the power saw is needed for blowdown , I see Emperor makes a nice universal fork mount , but I’m used to the pack

    New exhaust pipe repair tool

    Found with mine the pressure would go to 600lbs , hit the dents with a hammer to help it release . Nice thing is if and when it lets go it’s a fraction of force compared to air . Fwiw the fmf pipe went easier than my pro circuits , thay are slightly larger diameter and releasing the fittings was a pain . had 5 buddies all chip in to buy , we just rotate it around. Best $60 I ever spent

    Vancouver island riders?

    I’m from mid isle and help with the Vancouver island dirt riders association. If your on faceboook we have The VIHSS page ( Vancouver Island hare scrambles series ) along with dirtbiker..ca . Usually ride at whiskey creek ( north of qualicum) and the single track all over the island
  14. showing a torn apart bell helmet doesn’t prove anything about price or weight . But I will trust the current lightweight helmets that use modern composites far more than the common fibreglass helmets

    P-Tech Pipe Guard & FMF Fatty

    Fwiw my pro circuit works pipe will not fit the force pipe - skid plate guard . It sits slightly higher but is also larger in a few spots . Too bad as I like the power delivery better , but also like the protection .
