The beauty of the 390

Recommended Posts

The great thing about this motor is that you can choose to ride it a gear high or not. I have been enjoying switching between lugging down low and riding with some rpms. What a fantastic motor!

I would say the 500 is the same way. Love the long stroke motors!

I agree, I can idle along if I want or need to, but when I want to open it up and want to haul the mail . . .

Haha, yeah, just waiting for that call from Beta to be a factory rider!  Wonder if they're looking for a fat,  slow, middle aged guy to put on the payroll? Probably will be waiting awhile.  :cool:

I Think I'd like to retire to that area. Gotta get outta California. Beautiful weather, but the politics are ridiculous.

Is that China Hat?  Been meaning to get out there.  We usually do winter ride if no snow.  BTW, I feel the same way about the 250RR motor.  :-)

Hey Bryan. It's 3 trails OHV near Crescent.  Great riding area. 

And yes, when I ride my brother's beta 250rr,  I'm always impressed. An amazing 2 stroke motor.  He has the RB carb and head mod and its the most linearsmooth power delivery 2 stroke I've been on.

      Down here in mexico, land of the miracle and home of the weird, ive seen people use the same mousse for over 2 years. They claim that though it has become softer, it remains in place and performs well. How long have you used the same mousse for? 
      Rubber side down my guys,

      I am pretty sure my buddy posts here, FX! I have lurked for a couple years. You all have answered so many questions via search, since I started riding. So thank you!
      I really hope you enjoy this video. I plan to be active here, making an account was the hardest part... 😛

      Anyone have any unbiased opinion if they were buying a new dual sport.   Would you go with the new Honda CRF450L or the Beta 430rrs?   Why

      I just noticed that Matteo Cavallo’s bike has a kicker and estart like how Holcombe runs..
      I guess lightest bikes aren’t everything.

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
