  1. My pinging is occurring at closed throttle decel. Only at closed throttle decel. And it’s very slight at this point. I haven’t gotten to ride since I turned the pilot in a 1/4 turn, but I’ll report back as soon as I do.
  2. What kind of cover you guys got with the guts foam?
  3. Sweet, thanks for the feedback guys.
  4. You got the lower height seat?
  5. So I’ve got a new 300rr. I’ve ridden it quiet a bit. Longer rides the factory seat is rubbing my butt and the inside of my legs raw. I know I’m not supposed to be sitting much, but I’m a lazy rider I suppose. Haha 😉 I was looking at the seat concepts seats, more specifically the one that lowers the seat height 1 inch. Anyone have one? I know it’s softer, but does it rub you raw like the oem seat?
  6. Check ktm or husaberg parts.
  7. I’ve got to say the beta chart is pretty spot on. I ordered parts from Rocky Mountain atv and made myself a jetting kit. Ordered parts for 2010 ktm 300xc. Exact same carb. Got pilots from 35-40, mains from 160-172, and two needles. All exact same numbers as in beta chart. Set mine to the chart. Had to change my main to 170, needle to N2zh, and move the needle up one to 4th from top. It’s almost spot on. Zero spooge. Had to turn pilot in 1/4 turn to fatten up on zero throttle decel. But almost spit on. I’m at 700 ft elevation. Temp 40-60. Just letting you guys know my two cents.
  8. Cool. Thanks for the info. Polo sport is making one for 13-17. I wonder if it’s more flexible than the beta oem ones.
  9. Did you have to change the side panels too? Or just the fender? You running beta fender or polisport?
  10. Anyone know if the 2017 rear fender will fit a 2018? The 2018 rear fender will not flex. I’ve put slits on the side and the way it’s made it’s almost got ribs on the top and will not flex it just breaks. I try not to make it a habit to get on the fender, but I’m fairly new to riding and very new to this bike. So I need to quit buying fenders. Lol
  11. this was covered in a topic already issue? Or not an issue. Pinging and detonation came in towards the end of the thread
  12. How much does idling up or down effect rich or lean adjustment? And how?
  13. Short blips and in the powerband. Lol. Before you couldn’t really feel a powerband. I’ve got the power valve adjusted two turns in to keep it from hitting so hard. Keep in mind this is my first two stroke. 😉 I had already damaged the rear fender and climbing a hill today after the carb adjustment I whacked it going up a hill in 2nd like I usually would to just float the wheel over a branch. Well it flipped me on my head. Lol. 😂. So it’s got way more throttle response and power than before. Finished the fender off for sure. Hahaha
  14. Just got back from a ride. Same ride I usually take. About 5 miles round trip through the woods. I took a picture of the pipe before I left. And after I got back. I even stuck a rag down I. The pipe and cleaned as much as I could out. I tried not to use the choke long at all. I got her running and took off down the road. Detonation is completely gone. Not a hint of it at all. Power felt better, but seems to come in more all of a sudden now not as smoothly as it did before. It still spooges pretty good though?? Not quiet as much spooge as before though.
  15. Lol. I’m trail riding. Mostly real technical twisty up and downhill slow stuff. Some single track. So you were right. Putting her back together now. Moved needle to 4th from top. Left jets alone. Going to set pilot screw to 1.5 out.
