Registration for our services is quite easy, we need to know both your full name and home address, your GGUK account number if you are a previous customer, the address where you are staying in Scotland, a contactable mobile number both at home and when your there in Scotland ( for emergency use only ), your email address, what year and model specific GASGAS as bike you will be riding and what type of payment you will be using should you need any parts whilst you are up there and obviously your riding number in the event.
The best way to let us know these details is to email them to Andy Hipwell as soon as possible to the following email address :– firstname.lastname@example.org OR PHONE +44 1298 766814
Once we have all this info we create a file for you, and anything parts wise you need from us whilst you are riding the event we log down and then you can either settle up at the end of the week or we send you an invoice the following week.
Once you have registered with GGUK you will have use of all our facilities during the week such as access to any spare part we can provide from our parts truck if you somehow break something or wear something out whilst competing. A working area and paddock stand for you to work on your bike at the end of each day should you have any time left in your daily riding allowance. Some selected tools, oil sprays and paper towels etc we lay out for you to use. An airline so you can blow the dirt off your bike, change your tyre and maybe clean your carb out etc, and also some technical advice to help with work on your bike. The rules do not actually allow us to work on your bike but expert advice will be on hand to guide you. You will not have a dedicated mechanic.
I would just like to say you will have an enjoyable week if you prepare both yourself and the bike to the utmost of your ability before the event. Please see the attached files to help prepare you and your bike.
If you need our parts guy Andy Hipwell beforehand, just email him via email@example.com or call him direct on +44 1298 766814. Otherwise just let him know the details asked for above as soon as you can and then come over and introduce yourself to us in the Park Ferme in Fort William.
GGUK staff member Corin Davie and John Shirt will be in the paddock Saturday afternoon.
Our parts van opens at 9.00am SUNDAY MORNING May 5th
• Clean air filter box & make sure it is completely water tight, clean filter & refit after applying some (decent) filter oil. On older bikes it’s a good idea to split the two halves of the air box and seat and re-apply some decent silicone sealant before re-fixing the screws. We use WURTH RTV silicone. We also recommend a rubber flap which goes on top of the shock to stop water splashing into the airbox;
• We also recommend this ‘home made’ small extra flap that bolts on where the air intake flap is cover is. It approx. 20mm in width and helps to stop water splashing UP in to the filter box.
Also check the bolts that hold your flywheel weight if you use one. If you are fitting a new flywheel weight, PLEASE follow the fitting instructions carefully so as not to damage your stator
This is 10mm on the new 2019 bikes.
The standard TXT gearing of 11×41/42 is good (now 10×39 2019) but you may want to gear the bike up a little to help on the road sections. (check those sprocket bolts!)
DO NOT FIT A 12T front sprox on a GG TXT!
Remember —-one tooth on the front is the equivalent to four on the back.
When changing the front sprocket make sure the circlip is fitted properly.
• If you want ‘piece of mind’ regarding fuel tanks then we do the large capacity ones. These are not ‘needed’ because the army do a fantastic job with the fuelling service. However, if you want to relax about running out of fuel the best tank is now the TXT ‘CONTACT’ model tank which fits perfect on any TXT RACING or GP model. This is not just so we can make money either! Its peace of mind for you. You may get stuck on the moors, get lost or your bike might fall over whilst viewing a section. The CONTACT model tanks are available and are £139.99 inc vat. Part number BT76001CT-CFW-1-R
