  3. I’m doing another one today, MY19 RR480. I don’t do as per Beta instructions, I think it’s easier to do all the rear harness connectors such as ECU, capacitor, start relay, rollover switch etc.
  4. my 2018 XT250 with RR pipe (and jetting) is awesome, plenty of torque with unreal revability and instant response, with less vibes and inertia than the 300

    Gas tank resting on wire harness

    I covered this last year when the MY18s came out...the MY18+ stock tanks have a recess moulded in the rear to accomodate the wiring harness going over the frame, the IMS tank does not have a recess to allow for the MY18+ harness routing. I just did a MY19 480 with 4 gallon rally tank and rerouted the harnessing before fitting the tank, but now the IMS tanks have "revised" mounting brackets (front and rear) so it may not be necessary. Im prepping another new MY19 RR480 next week with a 4 gallon IMS so Im going to try fitting the tank without rerouting the harness to see if there is enough clearance. If you do reroute your harness please take note that the diode pack and rollover cutout both have the same 6 pin connector. The difference is the rollover switch only has 3 wires connected, whereas the diode pack has all 6 wires connected, could be a trap for young players (or old dogs)
  6. Comparing 2T exhaust and bashplate options (weighed on a calibrated scale in kg - multiply by 2.2 for lbs) Force 2T alloy bashplate 1.12kg Force 2T alloy bashplate with pipeguard 2.48kg P-Tech/Carapaks 2T alloy bashplate with pipeguard 2.8kg B&B Offroad alloy bashplate with pipeguard 3.0kg ProPower Carbon Fibre pipe guard 0.44kg AXP Extreme bashplate with linkage guard 1.24kg AXP and CF pipeguard combo 1.68kg Usually I have run a CF pipeguard and an AXP extreme bashplate, however Im now leaving my pipes exposed (BETA and GasGas 250/300s) and taking the hits when they happen, when the pipes gets really dinged I take them to my local panel shop and he pops them out for a case of adult beverage.

    Feedback on the 125 rr smoker needed

    125 is kick and premix, the 200 is no kicker and oil injection Same seat height as the RRs, but quoting around 95kgs for the RR200 (so approx 210 lbs) and a few kgs less for the 125 Id say the 125 is a wring its neck type of motor, but with 6 gears and hydraulic clutch you should be able to keep it singing pretty easily Australia only has 1 x RR125 here so far and it is being used for the ADR (Australian Design Rules) process so we can have it registered (Street legal), as the RR200 is essential the same bike, so we will also have the RR200 street legal. All BETAs (except the ALP and trials bikes) are fully street legal in Australia, so we can ride them wherever we like...except Golf Courses As soon as I get the chance to ride the 125 and 200 Im there...

    2019 XTrainer - USA models

    Correct, the XT is on a 2 year product cycle and got the motor changes that were fitted to the MY18 RR (new clutch, domed piston, exhaust port etc) so this model will continue on unchanged until the MY20. As a BETA and Gas Gas dealer I will get a GG 300ECR in when they arrive in December/Janaury and then I will be able to give direct comparison to the XT and also the RR200. BTW, Im loving my XT250 (only 3 came into Australia) and reckon in stock form it is the perfect "entry level" bike with the most docile and predictable power delivery, even more so than the XT300. Throw an RR pipe on a rejet (as mine is) and its a pure blast with a solid, tractable bottom end, super responsive and meaty mid range and a singing top end and even more nimble through ST.....
  10. The ZF suspension on the 2019's is a a higher spec component than what has been offered in the past, while ZF are not well known in Motorcycle industry they are big in automotive and make high quality products. Speaking to an Australian press rider about the 2019 launch in Italy, he was impressed with the suspension and in particular how well it responded to adjustments on the trail. We should get our first MY19s here in Australia end of August

    "Valve" is the slide, XT uses a 7.5 slide RRs use a 7.0

    200RR / 125RR / XT250 Beta Canada

    Ive tried attaching the XL spreadsheet, the PDF version, the Word version...I give up so here's a screenshot of the RR200 specs (metric) to carry you over until Beta USA issue the specs

    430 vs 390 rr-s

    BETA really only needs two 4Ts, the 390 and the 480, even then I couldn't choose one :-)
