    What did you do to your Beta today ?

    For anyone interested I threw my Lectron off my 2015 Beta 500RS for sale in the classifieds and also put some new tires on the other day. Feels good to be back on dirt tires.

    Lectron Gen II 4S Carb

    Time Left: 2 days and 12 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have for sale my Lectron Gen II Four Stroke Carb that was spec'd for my 2015 Beta 500RS. Purchased this brand new back in February and rode with it for about two months before I went back to the FCR. The Lecton's been sitting in a box since then. The Lectron fit my Beta very well and pretty much nailed all the supposed claims. It idled very well, pulled smooth throughout the entire rev range, and I got slightly better fuel range. However I wasn't too impressed with the throttle cable/cable routing. Lectron sent me a shorter cable adjuster which helped but the cable still had a tight bend because of the fuel tank. I'd get a new throttle cable made with a 90 degree bend if I were to keep the carb. Everything is still in great condition as seen in the pictures. I did cut the rubber cover a little on the throttle cable to help the bend. Thanks for looking! Let me know of any questions you have.

    2015 500RS is killing Shorai Batteries.

    Came back after a long ride a couple weeks ago and the voltage was in the high 17s and the Shorai case bottom was swelled out significantly. Reving the motor would skyrocket the battery's voltage well above 14. Shorai's customer service directed me to this thread Overcharging Battery but more specifically Mark's post towards the bottom. He had similar issues with an overcharging battery and dug into the wiring harness near the headstock and found this wire loose. This fixed the issue for him. So I figured what the hell and dug into mine in the same exact location and found the same damn scenario. One wire has completely seperated and another one is about to split. This is his picture but it looks the same. Fingers crossed this fixes my issues. Should I be good to just solder the loose wire back on?
  4. I have a 2015 500RS with nearly 8000 miles on it and within the past month I've killed one brand new Shorai battery and possibly have killed the new one I just bought. The bike is overcharging them like crazy. I've read that this is usually due to the regulator being faulty so I bought a brand new regulator and still no dice. I've also cleaned all connections including battery terminals and ground wire. The only thing that I've done within the past few months or so is eliminate the key switch and replaced it with an on-off-on switch. This Toggle Switch. Any ideas?.

    Should be a 4 pin connector. Looks like this. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/akwAAOSwFNZWwx3t/s-l300.jpg

    Can somebody with a 2018 RR-S do me a favor and take a picture of the kill/start switch's connector.

    Warranty work - skeptical of the work

    Does the Endurance II directly swap out with the Voyager?

    Great FCR Carb video

    I found this same video the other day. Very good explanation for the FCR. Makes my Lectron look so simple in comparison.

    What did you do to your Beta today ?

    Mainly to clean up the bars. I'm using G2 handguards. Just ended up cutting down the key. Works fine.

    What did you do to your Beta today ?

    Tried out a set of Emperor Racing mounts. Little did I know that it blocked access for the key. Anybody install a toggle switch in place or eliminate the key switch?
