  1. Please post videos of some hard technical trails . It can be Desert or jungle or Mountains , Rocks, Mud, Dust .....Whatever you can figure from all over is fine. It doesn't have to be yours. Pass on one you have seen. I'll start with a newer vid from phaulgai on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/user/woodsrider117?feature=mhw4#p/f/37/AjZrJPfKLOI :banana:

    450RR for hare scramble?

    Here’s a real old vid of me entering a Kahuku trail race on my 09’ Beta 525 RS. It was fun.. damn that bike is quiet. Ive since upgraded GoPro camera. That bike is a bit bulky for racing but it was fun, That’s the point. Lets see I was 51? Gee time flies..almost 9 years..video is so much better now.. Your 13 450 is great.. a couple more races and you’ll figure how to let the bike do more work for you...short shift..higher gears.. low rpm and open it up a little in the straights .. You got a good bike.
  3. If you do change your waterpump seal I would put the better boano racing water pump impellar at the same time... Since you are going in there anyway. Do it all right.. So your bike will run cooler..just a thought. I m wondering if I should change my waterpump seal etc too before installing my Boano impellar..

    Beta have been selling fast locally. There’s one kind of ratty Xtrainer that looks like not taken care of on cl. Other than that there’s nothing to buy.

    So next race/ ride you’ll roll through sections much easier with even just better adjusted air pressure. Add a little experience from the first race and you’ll just enjoy yourself more and more.

    What’s the matter krannie... you upset your Sachs had no wear? You can get some KYB’s just so you don’t need to be in agreement with me. You can keep taking your grumpy pills you take everyday too...

    It’s retarded to me. Whatever bike you get you set up the forks / shock etc and ride it. If there’s a problem then it’s fix it..upgrade.. whatever. that’s no matter what brand it is. Some here are anti whatever brand that isn’t kyb. I don’t get it. Well except for some that have had problems and that is some but still.. so what. You fix and move on. I’ll run whatever forks any bike comes with. It’s setup and go. If it has problems fix. Sachs has been great for me. I got the 50 mm zokes on my 350 and my OC Sachs and no problems. Even my old zokes shivers on my 525 got serviced and sprung and gold valved and still didn’t have issues before or after. If I ran KTM I’d do the same with WP suspension. Overall I don’t get the hoopla on Beta suspension. It’s been for me and if I would have any issues I’d just get it fixed... like any and every bike. The stock Sachs cc sprung and tuned is what Holcombe races in Enduro World Championships and been winning with for years. You think this is bad? Try looking at Beta riders and kickstand tips..pads whatever..There’s I think a couple of long threads on that..

    450RR for hare scramble?

    Here’s another simple thing .. watch vids.. see how other guys ride..GJ for instance lots of times is a little above idle in high gears and going fast but with very little effort expended. It’s convenient if you are waiting in line somewhere to watch youtube. https://www.youtube.com/user/GrahamJarvis

    Woods riding no electric start

    My Dad had a tricked out 1998 ktm 200. That smaller lighter version was better than the latest ktm 200 version to me..no estart though but lighter chassis. Really as time goes on it will be interesting to see how guys will continue to mod out the 200 rr. It’s awesome stock but evolution for particular guys preferences will be fun to see.

    Woods riding no electric start

    I rode a 19’ 200 rr in local trails a couple of weeks ago.. I didn’t want to like it but it’s a weapon. Really I love all kinds of different bikes too though. That 200 rr is an interesting recipe. I still love my 300 rr and my 525 and my 350 race edition.. got too many great bikes to love out there.. So many bikes.. so little time. I could dig a 125 too..

    Woods riding no electric start

    Estart changes the whole game even in how to attack extra hard enduro. .. Can charge stuff that wouldn’t be practical with only a kicker.. can jump off and walk with the bike pushing the button to start and keep moving forward.. It’s all 300 2t estart bikes for all the hard enduro pro racing..maybe got a couple of 4 strokes.

    Woods riding no electric start

    So what is this? Woods riding no estart. Ok great. So can ride dirt bikes with no estart. Estart is great too. It’s a game changer.. but no one needs to have estart if they don’t want. I went one further.. I got all my bikes newer than 2001 with estart and a kicker.. I got both 2 strokes and 4 strokes too. I still have an old 01 300 gasgas ec and a 82’ 430 cr Husky that is kicker only.. Those never had the estart option. Too bad. Here is an estart ktm 150. Looks good to me.. light and estart and kicker. I think the new 200 rr is the better choice. Light like a 125.. luggs like a 250. Can have kicker and estart. I loved my kicker only modded for trail cr 250 Honda. Of course I was in better kicker shape. I injured my right knee and decided I had to get my 300 rr Beta. I couldn’t kick to start my cr for a long while. My 300 rr changed the whole strategy for riding and racing.. more options. The last 2 times I rode I only kicked on my 300 rr... My battery died. .. so I rode like the old days..

    Flywheel weight

    I ran a stealhy 10 oz and a 13 oz at different times on my cr 250. You can also just run steel clutch plates to add weight and to reduce aluminum shavings in your oil. Get a tusk clutch kit for cr 250. It's all steel clutch plates and it's cheap.. and it works good. You can switch out your aluminum plates for steel from the tusk clutch kit and stash the fiber plates for later on.

    450RR for hare scramble?

    That’s huge! Just riding with a a lower tire pressure will make riding so much easier. Play around with different tire pressures. Try way lower than you feel comfortable with and just go back up in increments just to try. High pressure like you had would make riding harder

    300RR vs 300 xc-w tpi impressions

    Most Beta guys say a fan isn’t needed. 300 rr ‘s don’t overheat as much. I still like to systematically add all the cooling mods possible on any and every bike though. From the links read so far Id for sure put a fan right away if I had a KTM 300.. other stuff too.. like big rads etc too.
  20. Is that an approved one? There’s a Walmart one that’s approved and it’s like 8 bucks too.

    Woods riding no electric start

    If it’s flowing trails kick only bikes are good with little need to kick. The technical is where estart means more..

    Woods riding no electric start

    Isn’t it panther something that is making an aftermarket estart for yz250??? Supposed to be out already.. not factory but good if you already have a yz.
