    Beta bendix question

    Clarification. It spins the opposite way at rest than when it spins out to engage.

    Beta bendix question

    Yes, it should turn when retracted, counter clockwise.

    Beta bendix question

    I have a new unused BETA bendix in the garage. Give me a few minutes and I will let you know.

    That was a nice video that shows the versatility of a large small bore. Or is it a small large bore. Lol. I am.guessimg that was mostly 2nd gear. Shows that it cruises so effortlessly for general.trail riding at low RPMs.

    Well that was an interesting video of a slow 4 stroke type rider on the 200. Would have like to have seen it ridden as intended.

    Loose bolts.

    Mine have come loose a few times on my 2013 250. But it is part of the ritual.

    I agree with you that correctly set up suspension is very important to me and I really like my current setup. Thanks.

    I will see a weight savings of over 20lbs compared to my 2013. That is a big deal to an aging more often injured racer who has shrunk to a surgically corrected 5' 8.5" and weighs 155lbs but should be of little concern for general riding. Once I have fully recouperated from yesterday's and my upcoming surgery, I will present an honest comparison of the two bikes. My 2013 will be completely rebuild with fresh top, bottom, suspension, and complete bearing replacement. You can't go wrong with any of the BETA 2 strokes. Some of the minutia people get into really cracks me up. They are all different but all great and can be used by anyone for anything except western and other wide open sustained high speed dual sport and desert riding on all those scenic open trails and mountains, and honestly in those cases why in the hell would you even have a 2 stroke? Any slower tighter or recreational types of riding are where these BETAs are great for a beginner or a seasoned rider transitioning to 2 strokes. Any great rider can win on any bike and the dirty little secret is many of the fastest riders just buy and ride and don't mess with anything. It is amazing the conversations I have had with blazing fast guys who just add gas and kick ass.

    Super easy to work on. Everything is well laid out. Started tearing my 2013 250 down today for a total rebuild. It has been a great machine. Far exceeded my expectations as a first year bike. BETA just hits home runs. I am eagerly awaiting my 200. I am around 155 w/o gear. The 250 is way more power than I have ever needed. The 200 has me very excited.
