  1. I bought a Beta to replace my YZ250FX. I was supposed to sell the Yamaha, but it's legitimately my favourite dirtbike I've owned to date. So now they're both sitting in my garage. The Beta is better at what I (mostly) ride. But the Yamaha is a better all around motorcycle than the Beta IMO. I'm always having to tinker and mess with the Beta, change things out, etc. Whereas the Yamaha was just get on and go. I've wrenched on the Beta more in its first 30 hours, than the FX in its 160 odd hours.
  2. Although I've yet to do it, and probably never would have the need. My 250RR is insured and registered as a street bike in Alberta.
  3. As long as the bike has some blue on it, it'll be good.
  4. Ride it with it and see. Not even trying it when it's already installed would be a bit silly.
  5. That's a heck of a build sheet. A lot of goodies on that bike.
  6. What he said. That being said. The Beta being smaller isn't necessarily a bad thing. Try and sit on one and see how it feels. Cramped may be bad, but compact is better. Smaller doesn't mean you'd be cramped.
  7. Unless 99% of the people that buy them confirm that it's true. I'd take that over self claimed dyno results any day.
  8. Good to know. I imagine the gap is less noticeable on the 300 (vs my 250) as well.
  9. I only do what Thumper Talk tells me to. Why else would I now be on a Beta, when I was already on a perfectly fine Yamaha?
  10. Mog made me buy one, and HDR might make me send it back.
  11. Damn, a good portion of the bottom end has over a 15% increase in power. That's pretty substantial IMO. It is too bad (for this thread) the carb mod is there.
  12. It's well known the Betas have a (too) wide 2-3 gap. Aside from fork quality, I'd say that's my #2 gripe with the bike, and you'll see a ton of reviews that claim the same. Guys shift their sprocket gearing around based on that fact. P.S. Quit being so sensitive about your videos. You're reading into my comment too much.
  13. I figure if a thread can have almost 500 posts on a product, it has to be good right?? So I ordered one up for myself. Look at all that magic. Thanks Mog!
  14. Sensitive? Insulted? Kind of ironic coming from that post. I was simply stating you're constantly posting like you ride the gnarliest, steepest terrain on the planet. So in reality, I don't see why you would actually use the 6th gear on your bike. The only time I've came anywhere near 6th on mine is riding down a gravel road.
  15. So a guy that posts nothing but videos of him never leaving first gear somehow needs a 6th?
