Check what the manual says about the 2stoke mix, trials bike run less oil than normal bikes.
I mix  only 14ml to a liter :o

Thank you for the replies! Got hold of Tim, and got hold of Gas Gas in USA - they also recommended 14ml/1L (140ml per 10L)
practised balancing for 40 minutes yesterday - and stiff this morning!! :o

I paid 15k for it - but that included a new clutch installed and a lot of other maintenance thingies that R-O-V Rat did for me. otherwise it would have been 12k. There is a 1990 Fantic on rockgarden.co.za for 6&1/2 k - but I am not sure about spares. the bike that I got is "well riden" but it is perfect to start with as I will not be too sorry for it!

Thanks - I will have a look. I need something that is "well riden" since I believe there will be plenty of "talent loss"

A friend of mine is selling a montessa 315 for R17K (probably negitiable)

PM me if you are interested.

Sadly my financial woes are getting the better of my new hobby - last in first out.
I am looking to sell the Gas Gas 321 (2001) model - well used but 100% working - only problem is a fuel filter that is pinching the fuel line and causing the throttle to not snap closed when released. I just paid 15k for it and spend some money to get the seat fixed. Will sell it for R15k including the tow bar mount carrier, or R14k without it.
I would prefer if interested parties would actually come and look at the bike instead of pics on the trade pages.
