New 350...currently bone stock, but the plan is to put on my spare set of Sachs CC forks and build kind of a street-legal race bike.59f24eb07c65e_new3502.JPG.72fefc64dba6a749d4f5414c29f8b17d.JPG59f24ec55de08_new3501.JPG.0c43a2d9a254249a604b412976e6af5a.JPG

 

Another Motoxotica purchase!

Keeping the 300 as well?

Yep, the plan is to keep my 300 as my main ride...I'm still a 2 stroke fanatic...if I could legitimately plate a 2 stroke in this state, I would've gone that route.

Besides, I've got way too much into the 300 to even think about replacing it quite yet...I might think about a new 300 in another couple years.

Rebuild time on your 250?

Anyway, did my first ride on the 350 tonight...IDK if they were always like this or it's the new frame, but this thing handles almost as good as my 300.

Yup, should have it ready to rip by Sunday. I agree on the 350, it was an absolute blast to ride through the trees last weekend.

Mounted a Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 and played a little bit with it in the woods. Very nice! The adjustable slave is a very nice feature compared to the previous model I had on my RMZ450.

Agree, with the cable actuated clutch it's definitely more of a pain to adjust.

No, it was already a hydraulic clutch. I also had one on my cable clutch DRZ and that was worst.

Finally got my handguards squares away.  I've always been a fan of rigid barkbusters, but the BRP Rubber Mount for the Sub Mount damper takes up a lot of real estate at the center of the bars where most hand guards clamp on.  So I went with the BRP Hand Guard Mounts which replace the top bar clamps. 

These and the Cycra Pro Bend were the best setup in my case.  I tried running the HDB setup but that took too much room and interfered with the Voyager.  The problem with the BRP Hand Guard setup was that there were 2 extra holes that weren't being used and all the material stuck out. Also, with the Cycras, there was at least an inch of adjustment slot left over on each side too.

You can see all the extra material in the pic below. 2 extra holes on the black BRP Hand Guard Mount and all the extra slot in the Cycra.

So I leaned on a buddy to cut and weld the Cycra slot and my brother in law to cut the black BRP portion.  All cleaned up, no more hoakie looking setup.

New frame protectors, oil plugs & front axle pull handle.  Received all day after ordering from Sierra.  Impressive!!  Yeap, Acerbis protectors were easy to put on with passenger peg kit, if you might be wondering.

I’m still waiting on my BYOB to complete and ship out, but got my supermoto set put together. Took my time and used an Outex kit to seal the wheels for tubeless tires, warmed up the tires using a hairdryer, applied some beadwax, they mounted on nice and easy with stubby tire tools, took the pressure up to 40 to help the outex seal, let them sit a couple days, dropped them down to 25 and the pressure hasn’t budged since. First try with something like this so I am glad it went well! Whenever the bike arrives I’m planning to pull the stems, put in some ride-on (more for balance than hazard protection), air up, then do my initial bike break in on asphalt (should be easier for me to control rpms before swapping back to knobs and hitting the off-road areas). Wife would kill me with two bikes in the garage, this is my workaround with minor compromises to have 2 in 1!

A lot of great reviews and feedback here on AXP Xtrem skid plates, combined with a 20% off coupon code they just emailed out, makes for a no-brainer decision in getting one of these ...

 

BLACKFRIDAY TIME ! SAVE 20% AT CHECKOUT* WITH CODE : BLACKAXP (From 24th to 26th night of November)

      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
