Nice Gazz, Just remember you only ever need a third of throttle.

"The last third"

Wow great stuff

Hope you have lots of fun on the trail

Louis

Ps out of only trying to be helpful if you find the throttle a little “lively” you can fit a softer throttle cam, fitted one to Nicky’s 350 made a big difference

If you want any more info on the throttle cam we used just let me know

Great bike Gazz, would have been better in Orange ........... Probaly easier to keep upright this one, rather than this beast

Cheers Paul, will bear that in mind.
It's only a 390 and is meant to more manageable than the slightly mental bigger ones. I've only flipped my trials bike twice in a year so ... fingers crossed

Knobby - it's actually half-orange underneath the blue. That means I'm like a bastard half-brother to you now.


I figured it was now or never to get a proper bike that didn't weigh a ton and could pull the skin off a rice pudding and before I morphed completely into Mr Barnes

new toy

Is this an addition or a replacement?

I recently rode a demo 390 at our local enduro track---great bike--but scary in that a slight twist of the throttle will propel you towards the next obstacle VERY QUICKLY--definitely not a plodder!!--it really punches and accelerates!!

Well done--look forward to trying to keep up a bit more!!

Chris
