Where to get Beta accessories????


Recommended Posts

Ok, I found the bike (an 08' Beta 525RS), upgraded the front springs to the correct weight, has a back rack, jetted, bark buster and radiator braces. Now I'm looking for a larger gas tank. What's the best price you've found and where did you get it?๐Ÿ‘

notTobyG,

Good going, you're going to like that Beta!๐Ÿคฃ How many miles? How much did you pay for her? Make sure you post some pics. Your may also want to get the soft foam for the seat as the '08 are like a brick. I did, and I can easily ride 100 miles plus without a problem. Didn't even try the Mussolini inspired torture device!

For CA, you made a good chioce in being patient and passing up that RR if you want to be able to do any roads at all.

thanks,

it's actually an 08' hold-over 0 miles. I picked it up for $7500 after all of the California tax, lic., the correct springs, jetting, bark buster, radiator guards and a 14 counter.

I will get the pictures as soon as I pick it up Thurs. or Friday.

On the seat, go with the soft or medium?? I heard the "soft" might be too soft. Guts says their "soft" seat is like an older xr...my XR was an 02' ...is that an "older XR"๐Ÿคฃ:excuseme:๐Ÿ™‚

I thought my seat was comfortable.๐Ÿ‘

Excellent. My RS450 was a brand new '08 too.

My son has an XR250R, and the Guts soft seat on my Beta is just as comfortable as his stock seat. That is a very good comparison, but unfortunately it isn't quite as wide as the XR. I've ridden well over 100 miles of mostly rough dirt and my butt was fine. I guess it would depend a little on how much you weigh. You mentioned you're getting stiffer springs. I'm 180 lbs and the springs and soft seat are just right for me. Also, the softer seat let's me sit approximately 1/2" lower.

I just saw that Guts has new seats for the Beta that have wider foam. I might look into that alittle more since I am coming off an XR (should read, really comfortable seat). Maybe that's why I typically ride sitting down.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜

I'm 210 lbs in my birthday suit and that's the reason for stiffer springs and why I'm going to use my fat _ss to see if I can break in the rock they call a seat on the 08' Beta.๐Ÿ‘

It might actually encourage me to stand more when riding.

You can check the TT garage to check out what mods guys have done to their bikes. When you check Beta make sure you check all models as the enduro models are not in the TT system as categories. Also check out:

Also check the KTM forums for rfs motor mods etc.

...and of course just google Beta 525 and search for something new..๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฃ

I have found the Beta community online to be more mature, friendly and helpful, ...lots of great info out there from nice guys that have a great attitude overall. Some have gone more than out of their way to help out. Good folks with great aloha!!!
