Mauser my mate,

I hope it is overly clear enough that I'm a fan of the Pig, a BIG one actually.... but for footup trials there's better bikes.
Montesa springs to mind, or Honda themselves, Beta perhaps?

No idea what kind of huuuuge sprockets will fit at the back, my guess would be you measure the chain guide as it will start to rub there first - but then again you would be able to make a new one allowing for a much bigger rear sprocket.




But, but.... you go this far to prove for yourself it can wheely???????

I DID tell you so!

Now, I bet you're no trials dude wanting to ride on fencing wires, fallen-over telephone poles or jump from rock to rock.... why do you want such a short gearing on this powerful bike?

That's below the belt.... listen up
Look I have fast bikes some restricted to 186mph/300KPH and I have slow bikes DT175MX but the pig low geared is perfect for doing tarmac lanes and spending an hour or 2 chugging down these in 4th/5th etc., never use first and she will happily pull away in 5th if needed Smile....you ride how you want to ride and I will do the same Bump Bump Bump

Yes: it's your most powerful bike SkidMark probably didn't know about, hence my request for posting a pic, should dissolve any suspicion you can't ride (re your 'trundling down green lanes' remarks).
As per your usual they're all spotless too, wonder if you actually sleep at night BRP smile

Mind, I didn't know you had 13 bikes!
I thought I was bad with 7 of them buggers, and I'll sell 2 or 3 this year probably, it is too many.
You ride them all regularly enough so as to keep the fuel fresh?

12's never used however she is full of fresh fuel and a fuel stabiliser along with the XJR for the winter months, only keep the DT175 and XR on the road all year.
Cheers Mark, I do like clean bikes and enjoy cleaning as much as riding, my garage is a home and my safe haven away from the kids and wife lol...shhh don't tell them Smile

Fuel stabiliser?
First time I hear about that!
Handy to have, dayumm, would have saved me lotsa work.
Will google (newfangled verb these days BRP smile ) for it, hope such will be obtainable down here...


Good weekend lads!

I used this stuff....
http://www.putoline.com/en/catalogue/product/308/fuel-stabilizer/2031/
For what it costs it's a must for the 12 and 13 specially the 12 as that don't get used at all lol
