    First Ride on 2018 Beta 300rr

    My 18 rr was aligned with the motion tool from day 1 with lower torque on lower clamps. and at 40 hrs i changed fork oil ans it was full of anodize. Beta warrantied them with the same tubes so in 40 hrs it will be warn off agian. just a heads up. hard anodize is inevitable

    Measuring from the bottom of the upper tube the reference lines are in the same spot. but as you can see the one is longer than the other.

    18 300rr fork oil level Sachs open cartridge

    i just thought it seemed way down there compared to an older sachs manual that says 130 mm for the 2t the amount of oil the manual reccomends does not get me anywhere near the 130 mm

    48mm sachs OC fork modification

    I brought them to the dealer to start the warranty process and then reassembled them. the wear is in the early stage you can only see it with a inspection mirror and a flashlight the black inner makes it very difficult to pick up. i doubt i could get a pic that shows it clearly.
  10. What oil level are you guys running in your 18 Sachs oc? I put in 545 ml and the oil is still a long ways down (over 140mm) this is with spring out fork completely compressed

    Update : forks did have coating wearing on uppers. Working with the dealer for warranty/hardcoat. So no the 18’s are not fixed. I always used a fork alignment tool and only torqued the lower clamps to 9 nm
