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 ?
Selling the motor from my 00 Lc4e with only 5,014 miles on the clock !
Posting it minus the water pump, covers, stator, tensioner, in order to keep the price down - figuring you would have that stuff anyway. Does included thermostat housing and full clutch.
The roller bearing upgrade was done by me with a puller that everyone shared back in the old days.
Bike ran great, no issues or leaks.
It can ship UPS for approx $100-$140 depending on location - contact me for an exact price.
I'm located in NE PA about 2 hrs from NYC. 18415. Pickup is an option.
I accept PayPal, but other conventional payments are fine too.
