    Cullins EX rounds 2&3

    Thanks for the share. What was the reasoning behind the 350RR to 300RR switch?

    What did you do to your Beta today ?

    How many hours?

    Are you responding to me? Or the thread in general?

    Not normal. Beta has been having some troubles with OI pumps. I just had mine by the dealer. email Beta USA and they will sort you out. For me I am going to be watching the OI, if I get the excessively smokey starts again, I will be pulling the OI and asking for a OI removal kit for free. It's BS that we even have to worry about this.

    First Ride on 2018 Beta 300rr

    I bought the bike with OI, it should run fine with OI. I am not when to bendover and eat the cost of poor quality. If they don't fix the OI then I will escalate this to get some sort of reimbursement for their OI removal kit. I like the Beta, love it actually. I just want a 9000 dollar bike to run as advertised. This isnt some rinky dink toy purchased at Walmart. I have a good feeling they will remedy the issue. It's just frustrating that it is taking so long for something presumed to be really simple swap.

    First Ride on 2018 Beta 300rr

    Great summary. Did you say you initially filled it up with 100:1 and then unmixed gas on your other ride? Yea they had the first tank as a 100:1 even with the OI. Bike is currently at naults. I was getting excessive start up smoking, and they are replacing the OI pump. Had it for 3 weeks, and haven't received the part from Beta. My riding season is getting closer to over and I want my bike. Very frustrating, Emailed Beta on saturday, waiting for a response. WHERE IS THE PUMP BROS! Outside of that, the bike is great. Just had a full revalve and spring from my weight but only have one ride so far. Need to feel it out.
  7. The problem with pipe guards is they dont dissipate the force, they just send it to a new area. No pipe guard, the pipe dents. Put on a guard, now the pipe doesn't dent, but the energy causes the weakest link in the pipe to take the brunt of the damage. Neck gets bent and kinked, and now your pipe doesn't fit well and runs worse. Personally I would take the dent knowing i can blow it out later.

    Oil injection removal

    Yes they do, but this was excessive choking levels of oil. My YZ would smoke a little initially, then ran clean. My friends KTM's start with very little smoke first time and once warmed are almost smokeless. Beta USA confirmed this wasn't how it should be, and I will report back when I get the bike back.

    Oil injection removal

    Great thread. I recently dropped my bike off at the dealer (2018 300RR) because I felt that startups were excessively smokey, low and behold Beta USA said they had been experiencing an increase in oil pump problems and that they would replace my pump under warranty. The dealer is replacing my oil pump as we speak, and I will post up results. If it is still the same situation, excessively oily and smokey start having been sitting for a week, I will be removing the OI system. Frustrating because it was a big selling point to me.

  14. Besides being closer than the Maine dealer, I skip naults. I bought my beta from there, but refuse to buy parts. They tried to scalp me on tires WITH my new bike parts discount. I looked at the invoice and they wanted 140 dollars for a 70 dollar tire............not willing to budge at all. So I kindly asked for a refund and got a pile of grumbles. I just can't do it, I can't find A. a dealer/parts guy that is friendly and outgoing enough for me to actually want to spend money B. prices that are atleast in the ball park. I will only buy something if it's do or die. I cringe when I see people buy a new bike, then all the helmets/jackets/pants/boots etc from the dealer. They are getting hosed.
  15. I don't buy from dealers anymore. If I could buy my bike's direct I would. I buy all my parts online because of speed, customer service and cost. Brick and mortar stores near me have refused to keep up with the online change, and so expect to cover expenses by marking products up exponentially. Take a 70 dollar tire and try to charge 140 dollars for it. I'll let them continue to live via service charges alone, that they rake all the poor unfortunate souls over hot coals for, since these people and mechanically inept. Eventually though unless they change their business model this crap brick and mortar dealers will die. LONG LIVE THE AMAZONIZATION OF AMERICA! Seriously thought, I'd be happier to help a mom and pop if they gave quality customer service, didn't try to add hidden fees, and charged me online prices for parts and tires. If a tire costs 70 bucks on rocky, ill buy it from you for 80, but I'll never walk in the shop again if you try to charge me 140.
