Finally got the 2018 bike home Friday night at 5pm. Then we where up till 11:30pm so Ty could race it in a two day Sprint Enduro starting Saturday.
Besides just going through prepping a new bike to race the basic things where, Samco hose kit, race wire loom, bars, IMS pegs, Seat Concepts seat, BRP chain guide, rear disc guard, quick turn throttle, Kenda tires, Mousse bibbs, jettting, plastic off last years bike and of course the Scalvini exhaust. Beta had already done the suspension.
We are really happy the way the older rear fender/side plates fit on the bike. Just cut the lip on the left side plate and it's a perfect fit!
Ty rode it around for about 10 minutes before the race, then he was off WFO. He was extremely happy with the bike. Said it definitely pulls harder than last years. Also really happy with how it tracked through the rocky sections.
Being it was a race and he was happy with it didn't try the longer silencer or anything. We checked things over after every loop since it was a brand new bike and only found one skid plate bolt loose. Maybe we didn't tighten it down late on Friday night. With the shorty muffler it sure doesn't have the usual Beta sound. Sounds like a true MX bike.
Ended up winning his class (Open A) against 450's and can't wait for the next one. Excited to try a few more things on the bike, but for now really pleased with the 2018 300
