  1. Yes, I also added washers to the 4 springs. It's really nice now. If you do a YouTube search on beta clutch there is a guy who advises this cheap and easy mod.
  2. FWIW I only have about 5 hours on the 430, in my case I was heading to buy a 390 or 350 4t, but since a leftover 430 was heavily discounted I decided it only made sense financial to choose the 430 almost 3k difference out the door and it still had a kick start and fuel injection. This is my opinion and others with more experience may disagree, for me the bike feels light when the wheels are rolling and a heavy when stopped, but not as heavy as a Drz400 and I'm talking about stopped on a tight single track off camber stuff soft slippery soil so it's not an issue for more experienced riders. It's got gobs of power if you need it, but not so much you wish you were on a smaller bike. I do think you are correct that the odd displacement dissuades people like myself from initially considering it. Now the bad I am having my first issue it won't start so it's back at a Beta dealer now. Hopefully it's an easy fix and I will be able to put some real time on it this summer and give a better review. I'm guessing the starting issues has nothing to do with it being a 430 since it either a bad fuel injector or the air fuel mixture thing next to the FI.
  3. Interesting, I will look at. Thanks
  4. I guess It can't hurt to try kicking it, but it was cranking good with the battery. I will give it a try. Thanks
  5. 2017 Beta 430 rr-s it has about 5 hours on the clock and was running great until today. It turns over and I hear the buzz of I assume the fuel pump priming like it always has but it won't start? I checked the spark plug and it looked good and sparked. Anyone have any Ideas on what I could try next? Thanks
  6. On the 2017 430 it's very noticeable on wet grasses or really slippery wet trail conditions at speed, when I switched it off the rear was all over the place on the wet grass. Most of my riding is on dry trails and I can't tell a difference between the rain and sun mode when dry, I can see why some seem to think it doesn't do anything.
  7. And maybe also check you slave cylinder. I just decided to go with the 2014 slave cylinder due to what seemed like a hard to pull clutch, this is what I found. It might be hard to see in the pics, the rubber boot is pinched and tearing and out of shape. The new cylinder allegedly has a slightly larger cylinder but it looks the same. It does feel a little lighter now so that's at least an improvement. BTW this 2017 430-rrs only has 6 hours on it.
  8. I would still contact trail tech customer support, and explain the history they might swap it out for you.
  9. I think you are correct it sounds like the TT is faulty. After reading about the rr-s wiring at least the lights turn singles and TT, the first mod I did was spray contact cleaner and the used the liquid electrical tape to seal up the weak connections. The weird thing is the main wire harness appears to be well protected from the factory. The lights on the dash are a total joke, if you don't seal them with glue or silicone they fall apart just looking at them. Good luck, maybe You can send it back to trail tech and get a replacement.
  10. I have a 430 rr-s with single injector, no complaints here more than I could ever want as far as engine throttle response. But I am no racer so opinion is a woods single track rider.
  11. Will do, hopefully it's not cracked, I didn't see anything cracked when I last looked it over. I actually rode it a couple of times after a friend straightened it, on the street it hops like a pogo stick, on the trail I couldn't tell the difference.
  12. In order to get the bent rim rideable some of the spoke connections got a little over tighten and stripped a couple.
  13. Fwiw it was a tree I hit head on at 12 mph.
  14. Okay thanks.
  15. Thanks, I think the spokes are fine but a few of the connector nipples might need to be replaced, I noticed the front and rear wheels use a different size spoke nipples. Hopefully I can just use any brand that's the same size.
