Hello fellow GAS GAS riders, would like to hear from other gassers in sunny S.A.! I know there is not many of us here, thats why we must stand together and kick some cone butt! Waiting to hear from you!

Hi there Gasser

I've been on Gas Gas since 2001 (01EC300 sold, now 06EC300 and 06FSE450 ). What bike are you on? There are more bikes than you would think. I stay in Benoni and know 10 guys around here that all ride Gas Gas. I've been on the other (smackover) forum for a while now, but only registered here today. These forums are awesome for setup tips, technical tips and good advice. My number is 0834504652, give me a buzz and we can hook up some time.

No don't do that. The government will pass legislation insisting on demographic representation on these forums and that the site owner will have to take a previously disadvantaged partner

Thanks Jeff

I find it strange that more people in SA have not found this site.
GG is strong over here.

Let's give it a try. Once there is a South African forum, the traffic may pick up.

Thanks
Mark

Tim, let's hope it never gets that bad.http://www.gasgasrider.org/forum/ima...ons/icon12.gif

Might be an idea to leak info to www.e-dirt.co.za.

Really? Not much in CT. I know that once a gasser owner always a gasser owner and a lot of people buy gassers just to piss off Butch. Who's the agent in KZN Brains?

Did you ever meet Dion?

I think the main reason for people finding thi site is when they are frustrated beyond belief by the technical support (or lack of) from Mitaka and don't know where to turn. That's how I found this site and Talking Smack, the other good one. The attitude and approach to running the business that Mitaka has is absolutely crap. For an off road motorcycle dealer not to have a mechanic working for him is in my opinion unacceptable. I bought my '01 300from Dion Belcher and he looked after me until 2006, even though he was no longer involved and he had a less than amicable split with Mitaka. March 2006 and my 300 arrived, Wynand sorted me out and was very helpful, even though he ws trying to race, repair and sell bikes at the same time. June 2006 when my FSE450 arrived, Wynand was just leaving and that's when my headaches started. Both bikes have run awesome, but things get super expensive when repair time comes. A 1000km service on my 450 was ZAR850, a base gasket set for the 300 is ZAR320. A similiar service on a Husaberg is around ZAR550. This is because Mitaka sends their Gas Gaswork out to independents, who charge what they want. Every single gasket between the cases and barrel/head/intake/exhaust only cost ZAR150 from Mitaka!! Be warned if you use them for repairs! The bikes are absolutely fantastic, I just wish that the level of support from the importer matched the quality of the bike and the fanaticism of the owners.
