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.

      anyone running the g2 throttle tamer on their 4t bikes? Just picked one up today. I have installed them in the past on both my KTM and my Hsq 501. But with the beta there seems to be too much side to side play between the throttle and throttle housing, allowing the cable to move in and out of the grooves. I can hear my cable grinding as I rotate the throttle. Any clues? Wondering if g2 was just getting to market quick, since our throttles are basically a KTM 50/65 2t cable, and just put Beta on the sticker.

      The Beta 250RR is a premium Italian enduro bike with a slightly lower seat height than KTM and excellent handling and power. The 250 has awesome low end torque and still revs higher than a 300, allowing for more usable range of power and actually less need to short shift the bike. Plus it has less rotating mass in the engine so the handling feels more nimble. Design features and mods of this very clean well maintained bike: 

      Electronic Variable Oil Injection design, no mixing of fuel required! The oil tank holds enough for up to 3 tanks of gas.

      Dual Ignition Map soft and hard power curves

      Adjustable Power Valve; can completely change the power characteristics from linear to a distinct hit (which is easy to predict and ride thru). I have the soft map + distinct hit tuned via the power valve ( a simple hex head bolt adjustable without removing any cover). This combo makes for plenty of grunt in the woods, but not so much that the throttle is jerky. then when the trail opens up you have the awesome power up top when the power value opens up.

      Suspension revalved and resprung by Stillwell (The Beta experts) for 190 lb rider. 

      Rekluse 3.0 Core EXP Clutch: top line of the auto clutch, is a magical addition that makes any ride better. can still use clutch manually to pop over obstacles etc. 

      Full off road protection:
      Aluminum Pipe guard
      Acerbis Hand guards
      Rear disk guard
      EE skid plate
      BRP radiator guards
      Clutch Slave guard with brush bar

      Ox Brake Left Hand Rear Brake; simple cable system to operate brake with foot or hand
      Beta Fork Bleeders
      Larger kickstand foot to not sink in the mud

      Goldentyre Fatty front tire; unmatched traction
      Shinko 520 rear tire; recommended with Tubliss system
      Tubliss system Front and Rear: dramatically improves traction; can run much lower pressure safely and maintain much better flat protection, also with lighter weight than HD tubes. You can run safely on a flat tire back to the truck due to this design

      PLUS: Registered and Plated in Missouri. Along with the oil injection you can dual sport this bike and fill up along the way without having to mix oil. It will maintain 65 mph with stock gearing and still crawl in the technical sections. (lights removed currently. Horn retained so you can honk to alert slower riders in the woods )

      All Extras 
      Stock skid plate, DOT Michelin tires
      (oil tank currently removed)

      Bike is maintained regularly. Steering, swingarm and linkage bearing greased with Bel-Ray waterproof grease. Fresh Rotella in gearbox. No Toil air filter oil used. Extra Twin air filter included

      Parts are reasonable and very easy to get. 285 miles, 18hrs

      This bike is ready to roll: race, trail or dual sport. It is set up perfectly and better than new with Rekluse, suspension, Tubliss LHRB and all the protection parts.

      For sale is a BRAND new 2017 solid white 6D ATR-1 helmet.  Size medium.  I had my local shop order one for me thinking that it would fit because I tried one on last year.  I don't think my memory served me well or I tried it on long enough because it doesn't fit my head and a little big.  Just over a month old and only warn 10 minutes in the house.  I can't return it because they ordered it for me.  Shiny and new.

      I recently fitted my 300rr with Flexx bars and noticed the brake line fitting would rub on the bars.  I was pretty limited in what position I could run my master cylinder.  I did a search on here and found that some people had tweaked the brake line fitting.  Before I ever had a chance to try that I noticed I was getting a very slow leak around the banjo bolt which I assume was from the fitting being pressed up against the bars.  
      I ordered a Core brake line off ebay (listed for 2015 300rr).  The fitting on this brake line is bent a little differently and provides much more clearance.  The line is also custom made to order so you get to choose the color of the different parts of it for a little extra bling.
