Re: Meet Up in Sort, Catalunya 23-27 September 2019

Are we still meeting at Phils? (edit: just seen Phil might not be able to mak...

Re: Husqvarna 701

The steels always warp when they get hot, they usually go blue or black too. If you think that's bad you should see how bad speedway and grasstrack clutches get, they are open to the air, are large diameter and have 6 springs and they still slip and burn out leaving many of the steel plates dished l...

Re: Husqvarna 701

Even a slightly warped steel can cause clutch slip, they get worse as the heat and cool so it just gets worse. I changed the steels in my old EXC last year, they looked fine but the clutch dragged slightly and it was a bit of a pain to put in gear, new steels sorted it. One way to check is to put th...

Re: Husqvarna 701

Yes you are correct, just a way of wording. Gear lower on the back means adding a tooth or several on the rear sprocket.... Yup, that's what I meant, one tooth more on the back makes the gearing slightly lower, 1 tooth off the front is way to much. I found the gearing Ok for most trails in our area...

Re: Husqvarna 701

20190820_134020.jpg I seem to have joined the club :) :) 2016 model, and must say it is excellent on the trail.

Re: Motion Pro bead breaker tyre levers, I am just rubbish?...

They worked on my wifes 750AT a few years ago, it was a warm day though. They worked again a few miles down the road too 🤬. The texture inside the tyre had worn the tube (new with the tyre) and it just kept splitting, fortunately we were near a bike shop by then so I shot of and bought a new tube. S...
