thanks, no mud around here only sand and wet sand lol. im was planning on only putting the sumo wheels on once and a while for some local wheelies, its mostly just in dirt bike mode otherwise. but after riding it today i feel like it needs to see a couple of tracks as well :) really fun, light, nimble, ROCKETSHIP with sumo. it was effortly coming up in 4th gear, i had a wr250r sumo before and these bikes arent even on the same planet

Yeah, I recently picked up a wr250x (same bike as wr250r but came with the 17" wheels from the factory) for commuting duty. It's a lot of fun not having to brake for tight corners while entering the corners faster than I could hope to on either my cbr1000rr or my versys. If you aren't in the right gear though the party is over right away. There's no making up for being in the wrong gear when you've only got maybe 25hp. There's also no such thing as power wheelies on this bike. Having a 60lb lighter bike with close to double the hp would be sweet. I'll bet that thing is a lot of fun.

Looks like you forgot to let the bike take a nap and it got tired.  Young bikes will do that. Just curl up and lie down any old place. They're usually fine after a short rest.

My first post in the BETA section! Sold the '14 KX450F to help pay for my new 2017 390 RR-S
Only mods so far are:
-Smaller license plate fender
-Smaller turn signals front and rear
-Ditched the stock mirrors for a single left side only Bikemaster Folding mirror.
-Cut down the seat because I'm short.
-On that note, I'm seriously considering the 1 or 2 inch suspension lowering kit.
So far, I love the bike!

Did u get the Moore and Sons 390?! I was on the fence about a remaining 390 they had, then one day it was gone! Good for you regardless and congrats!

Yeap! No 390's to be had closer to me in SF, Moore and Sons lack an updated website with current showroom, took a chance they might have a stealth 390 sitting around! Bingo! Super happy with the bike :)

Picked up a 2017 300RR RE on Saturday, followed my son around on Sunday to break her in and so far I'm super happy. Also looks like it will be super easy to plate her in Colorado. Love that it comes with headlight high/low, horn, DOT tires, brake light.

My '16 390RR, picked it up bone stock with 6hrs on it a few weeks back. Ridden a few times on the back roads, can feel the engine freeing up. Been to the OHV park a couple three times already, lovin' it.

Foot down on downhill side, didn't downshift (or missed the shift), not enough clutch?

I broke the golden rule, I was sitting.

I'm almost 100% certain it wouldn't ended that way if I was standing up. Also my speed was a little slow. It was my first time on that trail so I usually ride a little cautious on something new.

      I am selling my California Plated YZ426F. This bike is very rare because there are not many CA plated YZ426F's and it is in great condition. The bike has been garaged and well maintained. The bike was just serviced and completely gone through. White Brothers Exhaust/spark arrester, Pro Taper handle bars, steering stabilizer.

      New kickstand, new graphics, new fenders, new LED headlight and turn signals. Front and rear shocks have been serviced by ESP. The bike starts right up and runs well. I have a desert tank, paddle tire, stator, turn signals and other original parts I will include with this purchase. Title in hand. Best way to reach me is by email. Second best way is by text. $3400 OBO

      PRICE DROP Now $5000!!!
      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure
      -Force accessories case saver
      -TMD skid plate (not pictured but will be on the bike)

      Extras:
      Acerbis X-factor handguards
      a few spare plastics pieces
      key switch with plug and play wiring
      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual
      10mm billet bar risers

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm. 

      Can send more pictures/info upon request

      So I’ve got myself a 2018 300rr. It’s my first two stroke. It maybe just the two stroke part, but with this thing being oil injected I’m not sure. When I fire this thing up cold it smokes like crazy till it warms up a bit. Maude two three minutes. Then clears up and doesn’t really smoke at all? I know the older two strokes smoke a lot but like I said about the oil injection and I thought that cleaned them up a lot?? Anyone else have one? Noticed whether it smokes like crazy at start up?
