Default What did you do to your Gas Gas today?

Thanks
It is terrible to find parts. The bike was in bad condition and I powder coated the frame, bought a new YSS shock and the motor, fork, breaks and wheels are from a 2000 TXT 250.
Plastic parts are no more available.
The 1996 Pampera have an exhaust like trials bikes, the 1998 and 2000 have a pipe like an enduro.

Only thing I've done in a long time is I ordered a TM red skid plate last week for my '11 since they were on closeout. No clue when I'll actually get it rideable again.

thought it was just me. Sold my 2010 just before lockdown and got a trials bike did some playing in the yard, but my dogs told me it was actually louder than the lawnmower, especially when you factor in the barks lol

with regards to Tubliss, if you're not chasing a championship and don't worry about a 10 minute stop to plug a puncture (if you even notice it in the first place) then tubliss is the way to go. Mousse for the trophy hunters

I don't even mind a 20min break to change a tube! Certainly not chasing anything.. just out enjoying the bush!

once you try it you won't go back, the traction and longevity you get from running at 0.4Bar makes it even more fun.

Not implying you were chasing anything, my point was that (IMO) that if you are being competative and don't want to risk getting a flat then that is the only place anything is better than running tubliss (and only better in terms of risk, the feel is not better)
There is a reason why we don't fit tubes in cars anymore

Mmm yeah nah yeah nah..

Maybe..

Understand that racing is a different animal. Along with moosey comes muchos servicing and lubing, and changing tyres chasing that traction like it's going out of fashion.

Probably depends a lot what you ride. I like mud, lots of mud, and rainforest. Thick goopy pack your knobs up so that the tyre looks like a mud slick tyre mud! I have lots of fun!

I'm also that tight arse bloke you see who runs their tyre until theres no tread left.. or half the knobs are missing! I just keep letting air out as needed. And I'm not that fond of an overly dead feeling tyre either. A bit of air sometimes helps too.

I had tubliss and went to a mousse. I hated it and went back to tubliss. So much happier. Feel is better and if I get a flat I just can plug it and fill the tire.

I think we are on the same page but you don’t think you are lol. I hate mousse (except the chocolate type) and the benefit of tubliss is you can run it at very low (even zero) pressure without worrying about pinch flats. And it works even better in mud than rocks.

And cost wise it will pay itself off pretty quickly I fitted mine to my 2010 when I bought it (the front tubliss was already a year old) and it Was still on when I sold it a few months ago.

Now getting on to feel, I didn’t really notice it until I pinched the tubliss inner when I was changing tyres the night before a race so I fitted a tube I had and while I still don’t get unsprung weight I I definitely felt the difference when I had tube fitted. So think of it as a suspension upgrade that is much cheaper than your ttx or kybs lol

Try it, take the pill it will be just like on the Matrix
