  1. That bike already exists: It's the Beta 390RR or RS. The only long stroke engine in their lineup.
  2. I use this and add a hose at end as well. The nice thing about the tokyo one is that you can screw it on fully by hand. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HDQUA86/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. I could be mistaken, but I think you can still push a pin out of the cam chain.
  4. I carry an extra clutch lever only when I ride in Baja, unsupported for a full week. That only happens once a year.
  5. I have some protection on the bike such as skid plate and pipe guard. I can't see the need for a clutch slave guard though. I've never seen one broken by a fall, and I ride plenty of rocky stuff.
  6. I think the standard settings are published, but this is very hard to determine because your riding style and terrain plays a big part. The bike is also under-sprung for your weight(unless you did springs already).
  7. Thanks Sierra_rider. I actually took the petcock apart and the rubber looks fine, so I just gave the bends on the pressure washer a bit more angle and reassembled. It stopped leaking for now but I'll need to replace it soon.
  8. Mine is leaking now. Anyone able to find the gasket or full petcock rebuild kit?
  9. 390rr-s

    If I went 4T Beta, it would be a 390. Nice!
  10. From a monetary perspective the 17' makes more sense. From my perspective, seeing that you have bike to ride for now, I'd wait for the 18'
  11. I've been running GT216AA fatty/M5B combo and I really like it. I'm going to stick to the fatty front for the type of riding I do. If I were doing mostly HS I'd opt for something else, but for Enduros and technical trail riding it's the best front tire I've tried. I have 35hrs on mine and it's done. That's way more hours than I usually get from a front. I run it with UHD tube at 10-11psi.
  12. Looks like it made a good improvement. My 16' has such good off idle grunt that I feel doing this to it would make it more of a handful in technical spots. Mine runs so well, and even the jetting is stock. The only thing I've adjusted has been the PV.
  13. I feel you. See here I've ironed out most issues and learned to live with others. I love the bike though.
  14. I put rad braces on mine and they are already tweaked. Granted the bike has cart-wheeled down a few hills. After guards, springs for sure. Springs will make the biggest difference in terms of ride/handling. Change the fork fluid while you're in there.
