  1. I like the look of the system for center knobbie support but it looks a lot heavier than tubliss.
  2. Just heard from my dealer that my 2020 200rr is on it's way from California and is expected to get here on the 20th.
  3. I liked the pre-2020 race edition seats.
  4. Gross. I think it could actually look good with a black seat though.
  5. I hate the look of that bike but absolutely love the look of the 2020 RR. If the RE looked like that I would want to switch stuff because that is hideous. I will be adding rim tape to my 2020 because that's the one thing that keeps it from looking better than the 2019 for me. I normally don't bother with bling because the bike will look like shit soon enough with me riding it anyway.
  6. NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT BROTHER!!!
  7. Did he also ride in battle of the goats? I saw someone on a 200rr several times during that race, I was on my 300rr wishing I had that 200rr. It was neat seeing one in person chugging on a hill, and me doing a double take of whether that was a 300 because it sounded quite similar when lugging low.
  8. The stock gearing is perfect, I weigh the same as you and there are no issues with 2nd gear and hills. 1st gear is too low for almost any hill. I do many in 3rd gear if there is a roll up and if needed drop to 2nd. I could see adding 1 tooth to the rear sprocket if running a spark arrestor to pick up what you lose from the open pipe. I have seen your hill testing video and was impressed how well it seemed to lug in 2nd, and glad to hear that was with stock gearing. Yeah I never want to have to use 1st for hills. I have a feeling the 14t countershaft might actually be too much change, and instead adding 1 or 2 teeth to the rear like you suggested, but if it lugs that well in 2nd that might not even be needed. I don't run a spark arrestor. All environments I ride are very humid.
  9. I got a 1 inch lower seat for my 2018 but if you look at the 2020 models it doesn't look like theres much reduction that can be gained on the new seats. I am very tempted to try a 1 inch lowering kit but I am so afraid to ruin the feel of the bike. For reference I'm 5'10" with a 30" inseam. I can tippy-toe both sides of a beta. I managed to get very comfortable with the stock seat height in hard enduro stuff with 105mm sag and a practically flat rear tire. In normal trails and HS stuff the seat height doesn't concern me. Edit: Regarding concerns for the 200.. it's so hard to make an assessment from videos. My concern is 2nd gear hill climbs that start nasty and either get nastier or involve a turn along the way that burns off momentum, and having to downshift would kill the climb. So I am concerned about 2nd being tall enough to hit the hill with reasonable speed, yet still have enough pull to reasonably climb after momentum is lost. I already ordered a 14t countershaft (comes with a 15t) but will try it with both. I weigh 155lbs without gear so I definitely have that going for me.
  10. I honestly dont know what the supply vs demand is like, this is only my 2nd Beta and like I did for my 2018 300rr I put in the order weeks before release. I would think you could order a 2020 at least until 2021 models are announced but I dont know. If you're willing to drive I bet you could find a dealer with display bikes for sale, mine just sold a 2019 200rr. I moved to NC actually, but I'm not far from Columbia. A big motivation for the move was to get closer to hard trails. Just got settled into my place here early this year. I was down in Charleston where i was extremely limited in terrain variety and had no hills without driving 2 hours to adventure world where the hills were still few and far between and is SxS territory. Where are you located?
  11. I will definitely do some testing with it in a variety of hard enduro scenarios and large obstacles and document it all on youtube. I'll try to remember to reply to this thread when I get it and do my filming and editing, or look out for it on my channel (DirtJunkie). Would be great if the bike comes next week so I can test it that weekend since the back yard stuff, while fun, just isnt really what I feel would be a challenge for the 200rr.
  12. Is this just a belay type device that climbers use? Cant watch the video, at work. Looks pretty neat I'll have to save this one.
  13. That is a whole lotta suck and being by yourself.. what do you do different now? Carry extra rope and ratchet straps?
  14. How does it feel sitting on it compared to 2018/2019 models? Does the seat feel wider, more narrow or about the same?
  15. Oh man your second pic, I know what that's like. I flew out to ride with my buddy and I was on his CR250 at the time when I crashed it, crushed the clutch cover and broke the brake pedal, then fell down the edge. We used sticks and rocks to stake the bike in place and make about a foot or two of progress at a time on the front and rear, staking again, and repeating until back on the trail. It was only the 2 of us and it was far too loose and steep to even stand on. Good times!
