    Beta Fork Diaries

    hey, Warren, thank you again for the MXT kit and great service. i've got a handful of rides and one race on the inserts and have made a ONE CLICK change on compression ... that's it ... these things are awesome in my '13 recoated OC Sachs.

    Wheel spacers.

    i bought the Wise version from Sierra over the winter, still haven't installed yet. seems like they would just trap more fine silt but i'll give them a try.

    Rear Spring Sacked Out

    i switched to Cannon Racecraft this season with the hopes that it's a better quality spring with a more consistent rate. definitely a different spring design when comparing the two. same length although more space between coils and slightly less preload needed to get the same numbers.

    thanks, Steve. i'm currently at ~173lbs sans clothing so i think the .44 / 5.4 combo i currently have installed is a good match. i'd like to get back to ~165 but we'll see if that actually happens. beer is too delicious.

    quick update on the Enduro Spec MXT inserts in my '13 Sachs OC w/fresh hardcoat from Steve ... finally had a chance to test them yesterday at our usual spot ... shockingly better than the revalved setup i was running last season ... no drama, just straight tracking through all kinds of terrain. i ran Warrens recommended settings, didn't touch one clicker through the day. can't wait for the next test session. Cannon Racecraft 5.4kg in the rear also felt great but i have some tuning to do. a tad choppy in the rocks. lost 15lbs so i need to reevaluate my settings.

    New Beta Factory Suspension Program

    no, they are priced the same although the BYOB Factory Pro Suspension Kit currently includes springs and the same kit through BFSP does not. pricing reflects this difference.

    New Beta Factory Suspension Program

    i've shopped wisely, the pricing isn't that far off when you factor all work, parts and shipping equal.
  9. Man, wish this program was introduced a few months ago, I would have taken advantage of it. Pricing looks good. ----- THE NEW BETA FACTORY SUSPENSION BUILD PROGRAM! You can order suspension packages, lowering kits, and additional suspension items for a new Beta motorcycle that you are ordering from your dealer or for the Beta that you already own. Our new website will guide you through the different steps for ordering the items that you need to complete your build. http://betasuspension.com/
  10. doesn't look like it, at least not one that comes with a cover spacer.
  11. popped the clutch cover and very lightly held the basket with a screwdriver ... bolt slipped right out! torque spec is only 6Nm, guess i needed just a hair more hold to break the loctite. thanks for the input, all
  12. yeah, curious if the upgraded impeller will help in those nasty situations where i'm stuck on a hill cooking the bike like an idiot ... i went with the Boano kit, better price than Beta.
  13. hah! i was very close to that last night but how did you tighten the new one?
  14. OK, thanks, Glenn. yeah, that was my fear, stressing any sort of small gears. i'll pull the cover and see how it goes...
  15. hey, all ... i feel like an idiot but the Beta shop manual is super vague on this ... what's the best way to remove the stock plastic water pump impeller on a 250RR? the manual just says remove the bolt. duh, i know that but what's the best way to hold the shaft? i tried wedging the impeller blades like you can do on a KTM but the plastic is too flimsy. pretty positive there is loctite on the bolt threads from the factory. any tips? i don't want to stress anything.
