What did you do to your Beta today ?

Actually I found the opposite to be true, but I admit they are not for everybody. Ran them for years on two GGs. Very natural feeling standing and leaning forward. I'm running the stock Beta race pegs now only because the pivot pegs were due for another rebuild and I sold them with the bike. Biggest negative IMO is the maintanence due to the tiny orings that fail often. You may not like them but don't bash until you try.

 Seems people are very polarized on the idea of those pivot pegs. I have them on my GG and like them. Maybe not enough to but another set . Apart from that quality seems to be very good. One thing I did notice using them is, it appears my knees are a little bit more sore after a long ride which could be due to the extended mobility that they provide.

I'm still curious about these from zipty racing and ankle saver pegs.. I'm not planning on much airtime as far as the anklesaver pegs go but every once in a while I have crazy thoughts of charging some motocross. That's not exactly good being on blood thinners but still my old race blood get's itchy. I keep fighting off those feelings when it comes up . The offroad races and riding should help alleviate the mx bug . I know a bunch of people have gotten stress fractures from jumping not to mention achilles issues. Still in my mind these..especially the zipty pegs that look like bicycle pedals or floorboards might be good. It's all personal preference of course but when I look down at my size 13's I keep thinking not much is really holding me up. My feet go way off the pegs anyway. In tight stuff I'm not sure how it will fit through rocks etc but like all pegs they fold up when contacting obstacles.

ktm foot pegs needs just to be drilled?

 

often i see ktm foot pegs at better prices than beta ones....

 

I bought some offset system rigg ktm pegs and they bolted on . I can't say for what companies but I'm guessing they all fit..

I always believed KTM foot pegs to be fully compatible but the previous posts make me think about.

anyway, drill a hole is not a problem...

Well, I now have a Rekluse Core, F3 pegs, MT43 and EE handguards sitting here with no bike to put them on. I won't have it back until next week while they design rotor guards for it.  :cry:

One thing I do not like is really wide pegs, maybe because I'm a size 9 boot. My pivots were older, before they made them wider. The Beta pegs on the Race model are about my limit. I'd like to try pivots on the Beta if I could find an older set in great shape cheap.

I bought the AM Beta rear rotor guard/carrier with the bike. Very(too) pricy and nice, but like you I couldn't take the bike in the woods here without full armor and expect to ride it out.

Trust me your going to need this:

Seriously, considering the machining of this linkage guard, i can not understand how they can price it 300$.

I could understand if it were made of titanium, but this is normal Anticorodal...

Is the link more vulnerable than other links? I've never put a guard for my link on my cr and I've slammed that thing into everything since 01.

What is PHDS ?

Progressive Handlebar Damping System. Basically elastomer dampened handlebar mounts. They allow the bars to move in three directions and help isolate them from trail junk and vibrations. Need some help for my right wrist which I broke in March

BPD is designing new rotor guards for the front and rear. Their guards are top notch. They've already designed really nice radiator guards for Betas. :thumbsup:

Its typical of a modern swing arm mounted rocker linkage. Very much like a CRF or a Husky. Not as low as a KTM. If you ride rocks or hop logs you will hit it occasionally, that is a sure thing. The Fastway/Stillwell skid exits not because the Beta is particularly bad, but for the Stillwell Endurocross team bikes along with the KTMs. If they ran Hondas you would probably have seen a Honda app first. It's a good thing having the option. I know I beat the crap out of the Scorpion skid on my '12 GG so this was a no brainer.

      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.

      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 am selling my x trainer, it is an amazing bike with smooth power delivery. Almost impossible to stall! It is all stock and original I just added the handguards. It is a 300cc 2 stroke, perfect for a beginner or someone that wants an agile bike for hard enduro/ singletrack riding. Very well maintained only has about 35 hours on it and kept in a climate controlled garage. Only reason I am selling is because I will be getting a more aggressive bike for doing xc racing in Louisiana where they don't have much for technical trails. Please email me with any questions about the bike I will get back as fast as I can. Thanks for looking. Price is $6500. I do not need help selling.

      Just bought my first beta! So far (99km,6.1hrs) I have no real complaints. Having been a 450 fuel injection rider I am a little new to jetting and carb tuning. Jetting is stock at this point and it seems to run pretty clean. I ride at 5000-8000ft elevation and summer temps are 70-85deg f. Bike has no hesitation and is very smooth, my only concern is the pipe drool that is running down the silencer and dropping onto the swing arm. Is this normal? I'm running my pre mix at 48:1 synthetic mix (which is a little different  than spec at 50:1 but seeing that it is new I wanted to be on the oily side) another question is concerning gearing. Stock is 13-49. I was recommended by the dealer to try12-49 but I don't think I need to go that low. 1st gear is great, but the gap from 1to 2 seems to be a bit too much. I can slip the clutch to help but I wonder if 1-2 teeth more on the rear sprocket would be perfect for this minor gap in gearing. Thanks
