    KTM 300 or Beta 300rr or Gas Gas 300

    Don't do it..............just don't. Its just post after post after post. It makes me steer away from the Beta forum which is a shame.

    No, I was talking about enduro. Check out the FIM stats. Majority of the riders are on 4 strokes. I was just pointing out that hawaiidirtrider likes to add works/sentences/paragraphs to peoples post that aren't actually there. But hey, we all know about it.

    "No one said anything about hard enduro. If we are talking true enduro, then the FIM european format 4 strokes dominate that." Bro we know you don't read the actual comments and just respond to keep your post count up. It's cool though.

    No one said anything about hard enduro. If we are talking true enduro, then the FIM european format 4 strokes dominate that. Anywho it's a great bike, with or without an estart or six speed. I swapped from a 2016 yz250x to a 2018 Beta 300RR. Love the Beta, but wish I had the KYB forks. I've been scouring the net for a set of goose goose KYB's to slap on.

    This isn't true at all. The YZ250X is a fantastic bike, because it comes with fantastic suspension and motor. Is it a 300 as far as chugging power is concerned? No, but for basically anything more than a crawl the bike is great. The forks are dreamy. Add and E start and a 6 speed and it would be a top top competitor for all around fantastic bike. As it stands the YZ250X is a great bike, that's fun to ride, and handles fantastically bone stock. I just think the price is a little unrealistic.

    2017 250rr suspension

    I agree with GP, definitely don't use brake cleaner on rubber or plastic parts. It doesn't matter if you wipe it off "quickly" the chemical reaction has already taken place, and repeated exposure will damage those parts. I would rather people use dish soap and warm water if they want some more aggressive than suspension cleaner. You have to dry it off to remove excess water, but a quick dip in suspension fluid will displace 99% of any residual water. Otherwise just stick to suspension cleaner on plastic/rubber/composite parts and brake cleaner on all other metal surfaces. Also I wouldn't use brake cleaner on painted surfaces either......just don't. Either way brake cleaner is nasty stuff and I see people use it without thinking. You don't want it on your skin, you don't want to breathe it, and you CERTAINLY don't want to ingest it or get it in your eyes. Where gloves and safety glasses in a well ventilated area. This stuff is serious. https://envirofluid.com/articles/brake-cleaner-non-chlorinated-vs-chlorinated-how-to-choose-between-deadly-deadlier/ Just a quick read. Thanks

    New England Riders

    Looking for fellow New England riders. Want your experiences with the OC Sachs forks. What tuners did you use? Spring weight for your weight? Inserts? are the CC better? How does your bike feel in trail trash, moto, flowy, rock gardens etc. Just kind of a brief over view. If anyone else has ridden in Maine/NH/Vermont/Mass and can relate to the kind of trails we have around here it would be appreciated.

    Oil injection first startup?

    The Beta forum is becoming the saltyest forum. Can we lock this thread, or clean up the garbage talk already? FYI https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=salty

    I just wish my OI worked as well as yours. Wonder if it's just the imported Bikes to the US?

    Oil injection first startup?

    You look more like the internet tough guy than anyone else here. Where is your proof to disprove their proof? Do we need to run around like monkeys throwing crap at each other? Wouldn't you as a owner want to know if there were any problems so you could catch it before catastrophic failure? Be grateful, and not a jerk. My OI system has been anything but reliable. I've had the oil pump WARRANTED and changed, and am now in talks to get the CDI changed...............but ultimately I think I am going to pull the system. For what we all paid out the door, these bikes should not have these problems, AND if they do it should be across the board recall. I love the bike but OI and the forks have soured my taste. Still working on forks, but I think I am just going to ditch the OI and play it safe with mixed gas. Sometimes I wish I hadn't sold my YZ250X for the Beta, but that lovely 300 chug put's a smile on my face. Good luck with your hate, hope a nice ride washes it away. Cheers mate.

    2018 Beta 300RR Sachs OC

    I can try that. I pulled my KYB SSS forks apart to do the seals and it was no biggie. Secondly, does anyone have any suggestions or guides on diagnosing what is going on. I have read some articles on what circuit you should start adjusting (clickers etc) and what trail scenarios you can try to ride through to determine what changes need to be made. Just seeing if anyone has any articles/videos I could watch to keep me on the right path. I have all thanksgiving off, and plan to give it the beans.
