Congratulations and enjoy your Contact! My '17 Gas Gas TXT 125 is an awesome bike and in 6 months I've become hooked on trials riding.

I thought the Contact had a fuel screw. It has a different carb.

Picked up the 250 Saturday. I may have misled some to think I don't know how to start a 2 stroke, not a problem. That being said, the 250 is easier to start because of the lower compression and maybe a little bit better jetting. The 280 can be a chore to start hot or cold. I don't know why. The TXT and the Contact use the same engine if I am correct. It started on second kick today. It is just too sloppy here to ride. Hope soon I can ride. My dealer said Maxima at 100 to 1. But the manual says 50 to 1. Any suggestions? Jeff

In my trials bikes I run 80 / 1 most of the time since you are not running them hard and long like my enduro bikes . So by going 80 / 1 it does not load up and rarely fowls a plug . Enjoy your new ride !

I agree with Rod if you are riding trials but if you are using the bike for trail riding where you wined it out a little more oil is a good thing .

What octane is the most used? Jetting off idle doesn't chop clean without a little rattle every now and then. I am running 102 race gas.

I run 102 octane also and it seems to run very clean . I would call Bud at Mattos or Jim at Foxs trials barn they deal with these issues every day and have always been very helpful . Or you could put a Smart Carb on the bike I did do that to one of my trials bikes .

Is it normal for it to have a low RPM irregular spaced slight pop on deceleration? Jeff

Been riding the Contact about 3 times a week. Took it out doing trail work. It is perfect for trail work. Runs great. Got jetting pretty close now. Thinking about going to the Trials Training Center next week. I am ready to put it in trials sections. I have been doing vintage trials and am wanting to expand. Just having fun. From what I am hearing, this bike is a hot seller. Jeff

Will 4th gear pull a long hill, and is it usable in a techy section on the Contact 250? The gap on my 2010 Sherco 290 between 3rd and 4th is too big for the type of riding I like to do, I want a more usable 4th gear. I miss my Scorpa SY250.

thanks
