Maintenance, adjustments, and modifications to our Betas


Recommended Posts

I have been looking at that setup, do you notice a big reduction in vibration?

Not a big reduction, no. Maybe a little. The "rubber" bushings are quite stiff. They do not flex enough for me to notice any give to speak of.

Its a well-designed kit. I'm glad I waited for this one.

You can flip your throttle to gain clearance for the guide. I really like the sub mount. Been thinking of getting one myself. Did you have to replace the link arm on the Scotts?

I worry about the throttle cables being underneath when Ms.Beta decides to take the occasional nap. She's only been upside down once, so far!

The link arm on the damper is shipped in the normal (pointed towards bottom) position. I took the link arm off, reversed, and re-installed it.

That's cool! So the link arm fits by just reversing it then? No need to buy a new one?

Thats not normal, thats a non-interval.

Normal use is 30 hrs and if you're Cody or Oscar then it should be half.

Especially the tranny oil can be left even more (50rhs). Haven;t done it but I always regret it when I am changing it.

If you use cheap oil, just don't.

Oil change intervals shoulf not be mixed with oil quality.

It can handle 50 hours... I hate to say it, but I have a customer that just now came in after putting 3500 miles on his Beta 520 RS. That's break-in oil! These 498cc engines are tough!

Yes, mine did. See the photo below.

I am just going to get the sub kit and take the dampener off my Husky but I have to by a longer link arm as well, can you do me a favour and measure your link arm for me?

With everything in place, its easier for me to take a photo;

What I could measure ... the tip of the arm is 3/8" longer than the damper body in the position shown above.

Thanks! I can figure it out from what you have given me but can you tell what 3/8" is in metric 😉

Oh well looks like I have to shell out the 40 bucks for the longer arm

I installed the RS wiring harnesses on my RR last week, It is pretty well a swap out of the stock harness. I used led turn sigs and an electronic flasher using, and everything worked fine.

Why did you do this?? Several on here said the lights were plug-in without the extra harness, I have heard it both ways??! 2013 have everything but the lights and relay.
