Beta 350 RR-S (2018)
Wanted the versatility of CC forks, plus I had these just sitting in the corner of my garage.
Only complaint is that they take up space on the bars and make it hard to get to the compression adjuster on my forks.
Does it's job, the stock 2.0 gallon tank just isn't enough
Not meant for the Cycra's, but with a little help from a Dremel, they now fit.
Much lower profile than the stock ones.
No complaints, good all round performance.
Not 'zokes, but they changed out the ICS springs on the CC Sachs. Don't know how much it does on the Sachs, but overall very happy with the performance.
Was .46kg rate, but dropped to a .44 in one fork to achieve .45kg. Was a little skeptical at first, as this is the same spring rate that I run in my lighterweight 300. Upon riding it, it was actually pretty good. I did go in a few clicks from the recommended compression settings, so I may put the stock spring back in.
Wanted to get the closest feel to the Fox Podium on my '15 300 race ed. The bladder supposedly makes it able to resist bottoming while remaining plush on the square-edge hits. Overall works pretty good, although my Podium is still better on big hits.
Went to a 5.8 from the stock 5.4.
Same exact tire as the Goldentyre 216AA, which used to be my favorite tire. Awesome performance and good longevity, now at a much cheaper price.
The stock Beta seat cover is made of a fairly smooth vinyl material and gets fairly slick when exposed to a little bit of mud. The Motoseat fixes that...the material is fairly grippy by itself, however ribs add another level of traction.
Another positive note about the Motoseat, is how good they look...and give that "factory" touch in the case of the Beta.
Durability is not an issue with this cover, as they are comprised of noticeably thicker material than stock and feature Kevlar reinforcement of the knee area. I've had this cover on my Beta 300 for over a year and 100 hours, with no tearing or discoloration.
The only downside and a small one at that, is the ribs do inhibit fore and aft movement somewhat. This is a minor gripe however, as I stand most of the time and only tend to sit on the front of the seat.
Overall, these covers are a good value that offer solid performance and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.
One minor area where my 2018 Beta 350rr-s falls short is the seat. While having the firmness level of a cinder block is fine for most of my dirt riding, this is a dual sport after all and the stock seat just doesn't cut it for more than a few minutes of seat time. The Gut's Racing soft foam is the perfect solution to this. The offer a variety of firmness levels (soft, medium, and hard) and two heights(stock and plus once inch.) For my purposes I chose the soft foam at stock height.
Installation is easy if you've done seats before, as the foam is identical to the stock foam in shape and size. After that, there isn't much to say about it, as it does what it's designed to do. Extended stretches on roads are now more than bearable, even a sit-down rider would appreciate this plush seat offroad.
My only squawk is with the price. At a starting MSRP of $89, there are cheaper options elsewhere. If I hadn't gotten it at a much discounted rate from my dealer, I would've probably gone with something else.
