It doesn't matter if one is a pro or a newbie. Everyone here is weighing in on this channel. It's good ? It sucks? So what? To me what counts is an honest assessment. So now if your a good rider you can't criticize? I figure you have a better frame of reference if the vids are good or full of shit or anywhere in between.

I actually think there are 2 types of fast riders. Fast race riders and good technical riders. I am slow as shit racing, but I can ride the technical stuff head and shoulders above anyone I race against. Kyle is pretty fast on the flowing stuff, or at least he looks like he's moving on that stuff. He may fair pretty well in a race.

Growing up riding with our riding community  the focus has always been to be a well rounded rider. We'd see who won our hare and hounds and tough trail races and who won in mx racing. There are riders that kick ass in both. That's been the goal for many. If you can win in mx and win an extreme hare and hound then thats proof of being well rounded. Those guys have the most respect locally. That's hard and takes more effort. It's riding with the fast technical trail racers and racing and practicing mx hard with the faster mx riders.  Kyle is a rider. I don't know about a racer. Idk . What level? Idk It doesn't seem like he's been on a starting line. We'd see some footage I think.

I'd like to see whatever vids you have. YouTube is super easy and fast to put up. If I can have a channel anyone can. I'm too lazy to put much effort into my vids. It's just simple click on and off. Almost no editing..only the easiest if that. But it is good to have and simple to use. Went to the beach Sunday and just videod.. I suck videoing but the content saves me. Same for riding. At least got whatever trail footage even if it's not packaged so great.

I've enjoyed Instagram more. I can post up a short clip with limited editing and go from there...

I saved you some time and went through 19 pages of what I posted... You're right I made fun of him in 2 instances. I called him "dummy" and the Kim Kardashian of offroad. Outside of that:

-I've given Kyle credit for what he's done

Encourage Kyle to line up and race to boost his credibility amongst races and people who have experience 

-Given other riders credit for what they accomplished

-Talked shit about my own lack of videos

-Asked for money

-Mentioned Megan is much like Kyle, but she does have some actual experience

-Told someone they are faster than Kyle

-Told you to not follow me of I bother you

*Also, I make all these mentions here. I don't bash his work on his YouTube channel, through email or whatever. It's all right here in this thread*

Will reply when I am done with work and riding.

Yea that's ok too.. but I only wish I had some video or even just pictures of when I was growing up riding and also vids  riding with many that don't ride anymore and in trails that are now surrounded by housing tracts. I'm happy to get to see some pics that others took way back when . It seemed more a nuisance then but now I cherish some of those old pics. I see some vids now from only 5 or so years ago and feel lucky I took them. Some people are gone..and some trails are gone. I rode for decades and think I should have taken at least some photos.

Youtube allows me to record all of the dumb things I do on dirtbikes. I'd like to see Kyle try this trail...I should've named it "why my Beta has bent frame rails."

-I've given Kyle credit for what he's done - Maybe you have. But every post in here is to erode his credibility.

Encourage Kyle to line up and race to boost his credibility amongst races and people who have experience  - Maybe he doesnt care about going pro. He probably just cares about his YT video and *perhaps* financial reward.

-Given other riders credit for what they accomplished

-Talked shit about my own lack of videos - I certainly did not. 

-Asked for money - Yes, this puts me off certain channels.

-Mentioned Megan is much like Kyle, but she does have some actual experience - I dont give a damn about Megan, her channel or her pro licence. What does she have to do with it.

-Told someone they are faster than Kyle - Who?

-Told you to not follow me of I bother you - You bother me? 

*Also, I make all these mentions here. I don't bash his work on his YouTube channel, through email or whatever. It's all right here in this thread*

Ah. I think I see where you got me crossed, and I have to admit your post was hard to follow as I think you are addressing the subject and poster (me) in the same paragraph. Answered you in the post. When I said "at least he uploads", this is my respect for putting his self infront of the world to be lampooned or critiqued, supported or whatever.

I'm not bothered Monk, I am surprised you bother.

I remember watching this vid before getting my first Beta 2 stroke 300. It looked good... good Beta ad..good vid!!!!  just watch it and see how the bike works.. I ended up getting a used 300 rr  .. 2013.. it got stolen and I got a 15 300rr.. still wish I could find the &%$#@!ers who stole my bike.   ... but this vid showed how the bike works .. If my first 300 wasn't stolen I'd still be riding it and be happy.  This is a simple vid and it just shows what the bike can do. The power of the search button on youtube or google for that matter is a simple and wonderful thing..

When I was a kid I ski raced. We used to stand on the slope with the big vhs recorders on our shoulder and video ourselves. Then critique our form later that night.

 

I still do that when I ride. This way I can see the mechanics of what I'm doing, or not doing, to fix it.

BP, 'I' (Monk) talk shit about my own lack of videos. I don't make videos but I feel I should. I have all the right equipment and software. But, as I mentioned before, my time and dedication is for training and racing at this point, not making videos. Maybe next year I'll consider it but even than, the goals I've set in place for next year aren't for making videos either...

Oh boy, here we go. Now Kyle is a suspension reviewer!  All of that expertise and, wait for it, he says the WP Xplor forks are better than the Sachs! 

Weird he'd think a fork, designed by WP, for KTM, that was meant for beginning and intermediate riding is better than the Beta Sachs fork.  Pretty transparent here in building up the bike he's "giving away", by selling T shirts to promote his channel.  

Now we're getting into some higher level marketing here. Promote the "give away" bike trying to sell T shirts that would pay for the bike, while those T-shirts promote your YouTube channel!  

BTW, I rode the Xplor fork on a '17 TE300 back to back with my brother's Beta 250rr.  Let's put it this way, if I rode only 1st-2nd gear terrain, the Xplor would be fine, but the Sachs are way more versatile and perform better the more you push them.

      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 )

      All Extras 
      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.

      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.
