  1. It will depend on how well they are selling. When I bought my 17' 300 Race it had been on the floor for a couple months, so I got it for $8300 otd.
  2. I never trust the hours they say the bike has. To run the number plate you have to remove the trip computer, my 17' says I have like 8 hrs on it. In reality I have over 100hrs. Look at the pegs, clutch cover, and area of the shrouds where your knees rub and judge how many hours. If it really is mint with 17 hrs than that would be a good price from a dealership. Private sale I would offer less.
  3. I have not had my Radius X in for long, but I set it up the same way as you on my 300rr and agree it feels pretty much stock. Awesome product. I had the Core 3.0 on a 2008 ktm 450 xcf and it was not nearly as good. Made a lot of noise and for some reason I couldn't get it tuned just right. It may have been the Core EXP being a little different, or maybe in that bike it doesn't work as well.
  4. I wonder what they meant by the statement, "this is not a model designed for extreme racing." What about it is not suitable for extreme racing?
  5. Carbs require airflow to pull fuel. This is not so with tpi, so there is a performance benefit at low revs. Also and i may be wrong but I believe the oil injection on tpi bikes keeps pumping oil even on engine braking. So I would say it is solely for emissions. I own both a ktm 250tpi and a Beta 300rr so I am speaking from experience. The engine response and feel with tpi is really good.
  6. They have a kit made for Beta on sierra moto supply. I would look at that since the springs are for Beta.
  7. this is very helpful: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.duncanracing.com/TechCenter/KeihinCarbJetting.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjw48zunZPbAhVHzFQKHZyCD44QFjAAegQIBhAB&usg=AOvVaw0X3yt0-Vo5HcvLUzZzQ4Xw I wouldn't put to much into the look of the plug when you just randomly pull it out. There is a specific procedure to get a plug read.
  8. Are you saying it's a conspiracy? I would call it "fake news"
  9. If you ask guys who make money off "fixing" the suspension on the most popular brand of bike if the suspension needs fixed, why would you be surprised when they say yes? Their livelihood depends on WP sucking.
  10. Anybody seen or tried this yet? Its funny that everybody used to tout the dolly adjustment of the Beta as an advantage over ktm, and now Beta has a colored spring kit. Anyways, I'm glad to see more options. http://www.motosupply.com/beta-motorcycles-beta-beta-stroke-power-valve-spring-p-2559.html
  11. It looks like you are recommending a lot of stuff Kelsey recommends, at least as far as the needle, air box, and head work. 1.2mm base gasket? That would be over twice the thickness of stock? Also, stock gearing is different for 2018, not sure if thats what you have. Lastly , what is the slide mod and what does it fix?
  12. Does pulling the choke help or make it worse?
  13. There is technical info on the lectron website that explains how it works better than a traditional carb to adjust to different air density. A regular carb will do so as well, but not to the degree the lectron will.
  14. I've seen you mention this a few times. Why didnt you just raise the forks? Lengthening your shock adjusts your swingarm angle which changes pro/anti squat. This really changes rear end traction and the way the bike finishes corners.
  15. The battery pack on the Alta is rated for 1000hrs and I'm told it is $3000 to replace.
