  1. I just saw the photo of the 2019 Beta 200RR on Steve Holcombe Racing site on Facebook. Looks pretty... not sure what the suspension manufacturer is, it looks different.
  2. Rim decals serve zero purpose it's just bling. If you are in to bling on a bike the bling should have a purpose to either enhance performance, save weight or add protection.
  3. Rim decals... why stop there, might as well add some of those fluorescent spoke protectors as well. Come on guys, these are dirt bikes.
  4. You must have ridden the Beta demo bikes at the Panorama Hare Scramble. Great event, what class do you ride?
  5. You are right. It's just that the original description is so vague it's hard to guess what the problem is.
  6. Check the throttle cable routing and make sure it's seated properly on top of the carb.
  7. Our public land riding areas are starting to enforce the use of spark arrestors, which ultimately is a good thing. From what I can find, it appears the available options for Beta 2 stroke SA exhaust systems are limited to the FMF Q-Stealth, FMF Turbine Core 2 and the Pro Circuit Type 296 canisters. Is there much difference in performance of any of these options? I'm very happy with the noise level and quality of the stock FMF unit but it lacks the SA.
  8. Deleted. Wrong post
  9. Here's some pics. The rust on the crankshaft was like grease and it wiped off, there was zero pitting or staining on the cranks machined surface. The bearings were shot.
  10. That's the rumor
  11. No water inside but there was evidence of it, I have pictures of the crank and bearings that I can post later. I didn't contact Beta because I didn't see it as their problem, somehow I allowed moisture to get in there.
  12. Original bearings with only 50 hrs.
  13. And what's the news on the new shock?
