Drag Issues On A Beta RR350 Racing Edition 2016

Recommended Posts

As the title says - how do I fix it?
 
Cheers.


Title says little to most.

Brakes?
Wheel bearings?
Clutch?

I'm thinking if he loses the pom poms on his head that should solve the drag issues 🤣🤣

Duh!
But I’m kinda digging the Pom poms! Gotta embrace the freak-flag

Apologies. Clutch dragging issues

From my experiance.The type of oil used in the transmission has a significant effect on the clutch,cold engine performance.I feel that heavier is def not better as it can and will cause plate stiction until it gets hot and thinned out.0-20 is plenty good enough IMO.

There are some quality ATF oils that will help, and bleeding your clutch.

They’ve helped my Beta transmission ....

The 2016 has the OLD clutch. The throw required to fully disengage the clutch puts your lever waaaay out there.  More throw required over any other bike I've owned.

I replaced the anti-shudder spring-washer with a friction plate, changed the hydraulic fluid and bleed the system, dropped the torque rating of the basket, changed out all the plates, but in the end, the ARC lever made the most difference.....only because it was easily adjustable.   Put  the lever position in for all day dirt, put it back out for street when you have to stop at lights and such.

Replace the push rod, it should be flat on the slave side. It quickly develops an indent and you lose travel.
