  1. I just wanted to post this information given to me straight from Ron at Beta USA since I couldn't find it anywhere else in the manual...ect. Hopefully this helps people in the future and makes it easier to find. Like posted in other threads in this forum, this procedure will help if riding in a different location than usual(elevation/ temperature changes...ect). This procedure can also help if you bike all of a sudden has a hanging idle issue. (For four stroke FI models). Stepper Motor Reset Instructions: 1) Bike ignition is off and engine temperature is BELOW 170 degrees Fahrenheit. 2) Turn on the bike's ignition and start the bike. At no point during this process, should you touch the throttle! 3) Let the bike engine temperature get up to at least 215 degrees Fahrenheit. (Fan may also come on. This is okay). 4) Turn off ignition (Reset has been performed).
  2. Not just in motorcycles, but I believe it's hard to find good customer service in almost any industry these days. I just went through the lemon law process with my Ford F-150. It was a nightmare! (I have no luck with new vehicles over the past 2 years, lol) But from my experience so far, the biggest downfall of Beta in the US is the limited knowledge among some of these(very limited) dealers and the ability to get a part the same day if you go to a dealer. They also make it harder by limiting the amount of people who have access to the Beta software IMO. If I could buy the cable and software for $150 or so and perform the rest myself, I wouldn't be as pissed off (and if you didn't read prior posts, the manual rested of the stepper motor did not work). In the end, my issues should have been resolved at the first dealer the day I brought it in. It wasn't an engine failure or something catastrophic. But it took 3 weeks, me driving over 15 hours, cost me over $1200 and me losing my vacation days for my bike to get fixed. Maybe I'm just unlucky. But I'm thinking of limiting my chances of bad luck in the future by selling the bike.
  3. Ha. Dealer just contacted me and said the bike is ready. Replaced speed sensor cable (other issue it was in for) and did a rest on the stepper motor using the software (apparently solved the issue). So 3 weeks and two Beta dealers just to do a reset on the stepper motor....WTF!
  4. Tomorrow, the bike will be at the local dealer for 3 weeks now! This is beyond frustrating. First, my trip was ruined and cost me a ton of money. Now I've been without a bike for 3 weeks. I was informed the dealer is having issues with the software.... So I guess it is great to have a one year warranty (haha), but no good if they can't fix the damn thing. I think I'm going to be a believer of "simpler is better" route now. No more FI for me on dirt bikes.
  5. Do you know what sensor was cleaned and where it was?
  6. One of the first things I checked. Even took off the cover where the cable attaches to the TPS just to be sure.
  7. Yeah, did the reset when on the trail. No help. Another dealer told me to disconnect the batter cables, wait 5 seconds and then touch them together to clear out any charge left in the system (didn't work). Bike has 23 hours on it. Only rode for maybe 4-6 hours or so on the trip. Only mod was the 3 gal tank that the dealer installed. Had a leak there previously, but fixed that. And had a couple falls, but nothing major. It was all in muddy slop at slow speed.
  8. In hope of saving the trip, there was one Beta dealer in Colorado that was a total help and almost help saved my trip. Sean at Mountain Tech Motorsports in Buena Vista took me in right away even though he was swamped. He took the time to go through everything the best he could trying several different solutions. Then he started to have software issues and eventually was unable to connect the computer to my bike. I think we came down to the TPS or the stepper motor. What sucks is he told me that Beta would not pay for his time to look at my bike because he did not resolve the issue. What total BS! So I drove all the way back to crappy Illinois and dropped it off at my dealer here today. Talk about a vacation I want to forget about. Screwed out of my time and my condo rental money. And no bike to ride!
  9. Well, still didn't figure it out. But it looks like I'm leaking fuel from the injector (if that is the part i took a picture of). Not sure if this is this problem, or just another issue.
  10. When it starts, the RPMs jump up, but then comes back down and idles fine. But if I rev it, the RPMs hang up again and eventually come back down. I will check the air boot and tps tomorrow.
  11. All good. Yeah, 2017 390 RR-S. I don't think it is the cable. I messed with it a bit on the trail to no avail. I will double check the other end though where it attaches to the throttle body.
  12. On a trip in Colorado with very limited internet access. So I can't search for this topic/ issue. Bike: 2017 390 RR-S But this issue just started today. While riding, the rpm' s won't come down. The bike basically will continue to accelerate or hold speed when you let off the throttle. Sometime, the bike will also idle very high, but eventually come back down after a few seconds. But if I rec the bike, the same issue occurs again. Not sure what to do. Tries to let the bike just idle for 5 mins, and it didn't help. Pretty much screwed right now since I'm only on day 2 of the trip...
  13. FYI, there are a few other sites that sell Beta parts other than Beta. Think I bought my BPD guards from AOMC.mx http://www.ktm-parts.com/ (also known as AOMC.mx) (Use discount code "Betariders" for 10% off) http://www.motosupply.com/ (known as Sierra Motorcycle Supply) and Rocky Mountain ATV will have some limited items
  14. Not sure what this did, but I have full range of the high speed compression knob again. Thanks!
  15. Thanks!
