17 500 RR-S Throttle stepper motor adjustment

This info was given to me via the sherco forum and is the most usefull info i have had for this bike and the throttle hang. I would have sold it for the throttle hang issue but now its normal again and makes it A great bike now. ................................................
"Synerjet Models have an idle up function to reduce engine braking. This can cause bike to idle up and speed up down hills. When bike engine beds in some bikes may end-up idling up. There is a torx bit on top of the throttle body you can adjust anti-clockwise about half a turn and that should fix it.

I tried much less than a half a turn....probably 10 degrees, and it seems to have helped....in the garage.

Once I finish the fuel pump I can test it.

Seems a shame Beta dealers and their tech's don't know this.

On sherco forums there is much more info about the Synerjet system Beta info is sparse at best. "The Kran" are you running one of the plus maps or the std map for idle ? On the 2018 there is no option for the plus 300 anymore, plus 200 is it.

ktm xcw have thermostats even the 2 strokes. so more lies from kranman......back to dominating your forum with all your truths.  I know   you are never ever wrong.

Right, an XCW in Austria where it is made, is called an EXC. 

I don't guess, and it's not an opinion.

      Hi,  I posted in the which bike should I buy section, but I was hoping for some feedback from beta riders specifically.   The short story is,  I'm looking at a new 17' 300rr race and I have to make a decision fairly quickly.   I currently ride a 13 300 xc and I really love the bike, even though it's not quite ideal for the majority of the riding I do ( lots of clutch slipping in first with this bike ).  However, when trails open up, the XC is amazing, on the pipe and the back tire.  It's way too fast for my skill, it's going to kill me and I love it.  I read and hear all about how the Beta is so tractable, power delivery is smooth, gobs of torque, but if the trail opens up ( with some power valve adjustments ), can it have the big hit and the excitement I get with the XC ?

      I currently own and ride a 13 300xc.  I love the this bike, even if it's not the best bike for the majority of the riding I do.  I ride a lot of very tight, very technical, rocky, rooty, trials type stuff as I live very close to probably hundreds of kilometers for trials trails.  With that said, I also race some hare scramble and enduro races and am looking to do more this year.   On my ktm, when I'm in first because the terrain warrants it,  the clutch is almost never fully out.  I run a fan because I slip the clutch so much and it causes a lot of heat, so the fan runs almost constantly and yes, I change the oil almost every ride as a result. I also put a bigger sprocket on the back.   I have the chance to get a pretty good deal on a new old stock 17 300rr race, but I've never ridden one and have almost no chance that I will be able to without buying this one.  With said,  I've read as much as I can about them and they seem like a great bike for what I want to do, but I'm worried about the difference in motor and grearing.  My KTM with the xc gearing and the 300 red spring, fmf fatty etc.. is a handful for my skill level, but I love riding it.  Will I love the Beta?  Would I love an xc-w?  Anyone with experience, I would really appretiate you input!
