My first ever trial bike, got it today.
Next is the small matter of learning how to ride it.

As it happens they aren't weeds but a few leaves left over from some hedge trimming last week.
If you could possibly nip round with Henry we'll have them gone in no time at all.

Thank you Mr. B.
I didn't know the colour was called Portuguese Orange and I didn't know it was a pretty rare UK colour.
I've got an awful lot to learn.
And here's a picture of t'other side ...

How much, if it's not too rude

Looks lovely - keep the speedo

Don't be tempted to butcher it..................if you want any tips let me know

900.
I'm not going to butcher it, just keep it as it is.
Got to get some blanking plug or something similar for the oil pump as it runs on premix now and a manual so I'm going to talk to TY trials tomorrow.
I do have one question, although I suspect they'll be more, is there any recommended oil for using with premix ?
I'm told 50 - 1 is the recommended mix.
Thanks very much.

Has it got a V5c reg doc?

Blanking plate is a good idea, fits behind the oilpump cover

Good price, keep in stock and you'll get that back all day long

Normal is 50:1 ratio, but if you use a quality fully synthetic MotoX 2 stroke oil, then you can stretch to 60:1, then maybe 65:1 and the bike will run a lot crisper

Use the best oil and try 97 ron petrol too

No V5c registration document.
Thanks for the advice JB, most appreciated.
