Rotated StegPegz. From 500 > 300. Kind of strange using 2017 for a parts bike. Have been looking for desert king version for the 2t, but until then I will take them off the other bike. Nice to have some parts interchangeable.
Changed oil and cleaned air filters to get the sisters ready for Moab next week. Need to get the shinkos on the thumper and she'll be ready. Got an invitation to go to Northeast Arizona on the way to Moab for a little exploration in my old stomping grounds. Some amazing history in that area and a great warm up for Moab. 20180401_200509.jpg20180401_200455.jpg

New DDC sprocket, 14/49 gearing from 15/48 gearing.  Still motors down HWY at 65 seems about 4200-4500 RPMs.  DDC sprockets are spendy but beautiful & should last long time.

Replacement Diode group and condenser from Beta....much better sealing and rigid as well.

I'm hoping that these factory replacement items which I recently installed will lengthen the computer battery life.

I found the stock 15 up front too tall, the 13 just a bit too low, so I've ordered a 14 for the front.  Still running the stock 48 in the rear. Fingers crossed.

Cleaned up the take off parts from my 300 rr.. subframe had 1 seat tab break off. Put on the Ptech combo guard so the old slavens pipe guard, the bent pipe and the EE skid plate came off too. The pipe got bent back against the frame but the guards did a decent job considering. The Ptech should do much better but we will see. I’m looking at my bike and the list of want to get mods is getting smaller. Bike is setup and nothing really needed. I’m looking at upgrading radiators now.. After that??? Guess I’ll look in the trickest 250 300 thread to shop. 

It’s amazing how light the subframe is.

^^ +1.  I have the AXP Xtreme on my Husky.  Awesome skid with linkage protector.  Tough, thick material, and not too difficult to take off for oil changes.  On the Husky, I found that if I looped a tie-down around the top of the rear wheel and seat to compress the suspension slightly, it goes back on on super easy.

I have had the AXP plate on my 300 for a year, like it a lot.

Well I walked  hiked in and cleaned/ cut some dirt bike trails with my machete. It’s for my Beta and it’s to help try to get me more fit. While I was out there I saw a couple of little piggies. There were millions of mosquitoes but it’s a beautiful day. I stopped here.. took a little phone vid and walked back... It was a good couple of hours of hiking and hacking. Good enough  for today.

Got to ride a bit a week ago, still had frozen ground and ice under the leaves, so would occasionally slide around in an unanticipated 180. Still had a blast! Several in the group experienced the effects of gravity and saw the ground up close, so overall was a good 1st spring ride. Then it snowed 7 inches. Supposed to have a bit of a thaw this week so hoping to do some trail maintenance, bike adjustments and get back out riding this weekend! By the way we had 6 Beta's riding together 4 300s, a 250, and an xtrainer, just worked out that way. My friends with KTMs were evidently not ready to ride yet, thought KTMs were "Ready to Race" but not in this case.

These are nice.. similar looking to dirttricks and those are super strong.

I installed an Enduro Engineering skid and linkage guard on the bike (2016 250 rr).   Also installed their clutch slave cylinder guard.  Snow and ice are preventing me from using it.  Still am researching tire replacements for it.  Didn't take pictures as I ran out of heat in the shop!  Where is spring at?

On my EVO 4T, ripped the whole tail off to get the carb off.  Started out, had the rubber hose between the carb and intake slip off.  To get to it - rear wheel off, swingarm off (not necessary, but needed greasing anyway), shock out, rear fender out, airbag out, carb out.  While I was at it, changed the jetting (main and pilot) and throttle spring, changed front and rear suspension springs for my weight, cleaned and greased everything as well as mtce oil/flter, air filter, plug, etc.  Runs like it's supposed to now.  Also added tach/hourmeter, and took it out to my private trails for a spin.

Installed new countershaft seal and O-Ring but since this was a KTM kit (needed ASAP) reused the OEM spacer rather than the KTM unit (1mm thinner).
