3 not bent (dents OK) XT pipes for $99? 🤩

Send the money first. It also just so happens that I know an African prince who knows one of your family members that passed away and left you millions. Send me 5000$ to process all of the paper work so I can get you your millions.

I’d be interested in trying an xt pipe on my RR if someone has one to sell.
Seems like a fun experiment.

It neuters the dog.  That's the main reason the XT doesn't hurt new riders, the big midrange on up is squashed.  This is precisely my case for a 250RR, it has all you need and your not looking to clamp down on excess, either on the trail or in the shop, and it feels more agile.  Add a good combo guard and ride with abandon sans pipe issues.

Will know more this weekend but rarely do I use mid range power and up.

When you get on some hills you may notice more of a difference than flat ground. That was my experience with the XT switching from the stock to Gnarly pipe. I'd like to ride a 300RR back to back to see how much difference there is once the XT is piped , etted and airbox opened up. Has anybody every compared the cylinders to see how different the porting really is?

Italian interpretation of English marketing promotional language? Should have used the word omitted or not included instead. Oh well.

The RE comes with a $119 bonus; the OI removal kit is already installed! https://shop.betausa.com/p/oil-injection-removal-kit

Free labor too. :thumbsup:

Apologies for reviving an old thread.

Have a 2018 300rr which I always thought used a lot of oil (Motul 710) but as I was only using it for fun days and short local trips out I wasn't sure. However have just spent the weekend away riding full days and on both days I have used a full tank of gas hitting the reserve fuel, and have also used nearly all the 2t oil with the low level warning light coming on(still had oil in feed pipe).

Compared this with my buddys 300XT and his bike didn't even use a tank of oil across the two days, by my calculations I think my bike was running at about a 20:1 to ratio, not good, but I suppose its better than not getting any oil at all..

Bike has just gone over a 1000 miles, but my confidence in the OI system has taken a bash, so rather than trying to fix the issue I shall be removing the OI and going to premix, which is a shame as I loved the convenience of just putting gas in the tank..

Well do you know what it takes to turn on the oil light? I think the oil tank is 680ml, if the light comes on at 280 or so ml than your calculations can be off by a large amount. Best way to test it is, fill both tanks, ride a couple hours, fill back both tanks but measure the gas and oil that goes in. Than calculate your oiling characteristic by dividing used up gas / used up oil.

Yeah I know my calculations are a guestimate on the ratio, but a tank full of oil to a tank full of petrol is not right. Thinking about this I've done just over a 1000 miles, and less than 50hrs on the bike from new , and in that time the bike has used over 7 litres of oil, thats 11 tanks of oil, so definitely excessive oil use.

I think there another tbread on this subject or its on the Beta  300rr thread..

I have  heard of this problem in 1 of tbese other threads . I think most guys were disconnecting the OI systems or removing them for a little  weight loss.

I think that there is a lot of paranoia about this system and that tends to happen on internet forums. Your gathering an opinion over a small percent of people. For every one internet blowhard is 10 people who`s opinion you do not know cause they do not quack about it on the internet. Personally i am going to give this system every chance i can before i think about removing it. So far with about 3.5 hours and about 52 miles it seems to be working fine.

Mine is working fine as well. I just check the oil before every ride to make sure it is being spent, give the carb hose a quick look to make sure it has oil in it. After all if i see smoke coming off the exhaust it means its oiling. Plus an engine that is leaning out (no oil) and getting hotter than (fiery hot!!!) usual (no oil) is pretty easy to spot.

I love the ritual of mixing the fuel, and then adding it to the tank. I have three one-gallon tanks and one two-gallon tank. I never mix more than will fit in the tank at any one time.

It's like the laboratory work done before resurrecting a beast. :thumbsup:
