I'm running 49mm Showa SFF-Airtac forks off a 2017 CRF250r and the shock is a Showa off a 2007 CRF450r, forks bolted on with Honda axle, hanger and some new spacers to fit the Beta wheel. Shock needed the lower clevis milled wider and on the 4T it need the piggybac milled shorter and a smaller bladder. Piggybac doesn't hit the pipe on the 2T so I didn't need to shorten it for that bike. Also had to grind the plastic subframe a little and the shock a little above the top bolt. Ran this setup on my 300rr last year and was impressed with the forks once I started running about 30psi under the recommended moto settings. Shock is valved a bit stiff for woods. Revalved both ends but have not ridden yet cause it is cold in IA.

I too brought my bike in for the winter lol. The wife almost killed me as I navigated through the house, and down the basement stairs to the heated basement office/vault.

The fun part will be riding it up the steps in the spring!  Have you set you up a small trials course in the basement for winter riding?

I will probably ride it out the bulkhead. I am a "give no $%^&" kinda guy. I measured the opening, and I should be able to jap zap the gap!

I just picked up my new 2018 Xtrainer.  I'm short, and moving from a CRF230F, so this should be quite a new experience.  I'm definately not a beginner, but it's been a while since I owned a smoker....

Here it is after braving the east coast snow storm, driving from PA to VA yesterday...

      The do it all bike doesnt exist, I know that, but Im looking for something pretty damn near close to it. My dilema: I live in Mexico and It is one of the most biodiverse places you can possibly think of; I can ride at 12,000 feet between pines, the next day shred a desert, and the last day be in a tropical forest. Any thoughts on a bike that you may think can handle all of these relatively well?
       
      Gracias amigos!

      I have a '13 Beta Evo 4T trials bike that likes to backfire on deceleration, it's pretty annoying. Looking at the parts book, there is no gasket, o-ring or anything else that goes between the exhaust port and the headpipe. The  headpipe isnt deformed or damaged, nor is the sleeve at the exhaust port that the headpipe fits over. Does anyone else have the same problem? What did you do to fix it?

      I just picked up my 2018 Beta Evo 200. The dealer included a few things in the box, such as the owners manual CD, a liter of premix oil, the rest of a liter of tranny oil, and a horn and a speedometer.
      Why in the world do they included the horn and speedo? The horn looks to be barely worthy of a kid's toy car, and the speedo might work on a bicycle. Why not skip those two valuable parts and lower the price of the bike by a huge amount, say $5?
      Does anyone have a use for them?

      This is my first post so hopefully I have this in the right area.
      So I'm looking to buy a new bike in a few months and can't decide what Beta to buy. I am going between an xtrainer, a 300rr or the 390rs. I know they have slightly different areas that they excel. I am coming from a 1998 xr400 and an xr250. My question is do any of these new bikes I am looking at have good off idle torque, like slow speed tractor torque. Both my xr's could chug along and climb almost anything but they are heavy and getting older. I dabbled in trials for a bit so I really like the low end pull of thoses 2 strokes, but I also have had a few mx bikes that had nothing down low. What are the beta 2 stokes like. Also does the 390 have a pretty low first gear if I go the 4 stroke route. I ride some pretty rough single track in Georgetown ca if anyone is familiar with that. Lots of switch backs and no room to get speed over some of the obstacles. I am more of a technical rider, don't do much high speed stuff so I'm not to worried about the soft suspension of the xtrainer. 
      For backround I am 200 lbs, 6ft, I'm a decent rider but don't race or anything. I have had loads of Japanese bikes and I am wanting to try out a European enduro, this would be my first new bike. Hope the post isn't to long. Thanks
