Show me your...BETA !

Recommended Posts

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!

Just make sure to get rid of the squeaky brakes, and she'll never know . . .

Sold my 2006 Beta Rev3 and replaced it with this 2018 Beta Evo 200

Very nice. That shop looks familiar.

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...

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.

      Down here in mexico, land of the miracle and home of the weird, ive seen people use the same mousse for over 2 years. They claim that though it has become softer, it remains in place and performs well. How long have you used the same mousse for? 
      Rubber side down my guys,
