anyone running the g2 throttle tamer on their 4t bikes? Just picked one up today. I have installed them in the past on both my KTM and my Hsq 501. But with the beta there seems to be too much side to side play between the throttle and throttle housing, allowing the cable to move in and out of the grooves. I can hear my cable grinding as I rotate the throttle. Any clues? Wondering if g2 was just getting to market quick, since our throttles are basically a KTM 50/65 2t cable, and just put Beta on the sticker.
The Beta 250RR is a premium Italian enduro bike with a slightly lower seat height than KTM and excellent handling and power. The 250 has awesome low end torque and still revs higher than a 300, allowing for more usable range of power and actually less need to short shift the bike. Plus it has less rotating mass in the engine so the handling feels more nimble. Design features and mods of this very clean well maintained bike:
Electronic Variable Oil Injection design, no mixing of fuel required! The oil tank holds enough for up to 3 tanks of gas.
Dual Ignition Map soft and hard power curves
Adjustable Power Valve; can completely change the power characteristics from linear to a distinct hit (which is easy to predict and ride thru). I have the soft map + distinct hit tuned via the power valve ( a simple hex head bolt adjustable without removing any cover). This combo makes for plenty of grunt in the woods, but not so much that the throttle is jerky. then when the trail opens up you have the awesome power up top when the power value opens up.
Suspension revalved and resprung by Stillwell (The Beta experts) for 190 lb rider.
Rekluse 3.0 Core EXP Clutch: top line of the auto clutch, is a magical addition that makes any ride better. can still use clutch manually to pop over obstacles etc.
Full off road protection:
Aluminum Pipe guard
Acerbis Hand guards
Rear disk guard
EE skid plate
BRP radiator guards
Clutch Slave guard with brush bar
Ox Brake Left Hand Rear Brake; simple cable system to operate brake with foot or hand
Beta Fork Bleeders
Larger kickstand foot to not sink in the mud
Goldentyre Fatty front tire; unmatched traction
Shinko 520 rear tire; recommended with Tubliss system
Tubliss system Front and Rear: dramatically improves traction; can run much lower pressure safely and maintain much better flat protection, also with lighter weight than HD tubes. You can run safely on a flat tire back to the truck due to this design
PLUS: Registered and Plated in Missouri. Along with the oil injection you can dual sport this bike and fill up along the way without having to mix oil. It will maintain 65 mph with stock gearing and still crawl in the technical sections. (lights removed currently. Horn retained so you can honk to alert slower riders in the woods )
Stock skid plate, DOT Michelin tires
(oil tank currently removed)
Bike is maintained regularly. Steering, swingarm and linkage bearing greased with Bel-Ray waterproof grease. Fresh Rotella in gearbox. No Toil air filter oil used. Extra Twin air filter included
Parts are reasonable and very easy to get. 285 miles, 18hrs
This bike is ready to roll: race, trail or dual sport. It is set up perfectly and better than new with Rekluse, suspension, Tubliss LHRB and all the protection parts.
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.
Preordered my 2018 500-RR-S yesterday! Time to start buying parts! The bike should be at my dealer the first week of September!
So far my parts list is below. Feel free to suggest additions!
Cycra hand guards,
front disc guard,
rear disc guard,
slave cylinder guard
3 gallon tank
Hyde skid plate
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.
