  1. My first hand knowledge is that I have two friends with 2017 KTM’s one a 250xc the other a 300. They both went with Lectron carbs for around 500.00 each. Yes they live the improvement. They got them cuz they don’t want to fiddle with their carbs for ever. My 17 Beta 300, I had some fine tuning to do do.. I raised the clip on my needle. $0.00 if I was a pro I’m sure more mods would be needed but all I want is a clean no spooge carb. I have that in my stock Beta.
  2. Wait what?? What do you need for the Beta that u have to have to ride it off the show room? I bought the 17 300 rr race. Closed cartridge forks, the faster I go the better the respond. FMF everywhere, large foot pegs, speedometer thingy, one button seat removal, I raised the clip on my needle, now it’s clean and crisp, quick release axels, VFORCE reeds, great shifting, 2.5 gal tank. There are always after market improvements we can make but.. KTM costs more and you get less. If you like Orange fine but don’t knock a stock better if you don’t have your facts straight. The Race version can be raced straight off the show room floor with confidence. My local Beta, KTM, Husky dealer claims he has 4 times as many KTM’s come back with warranty issues than Beta. He sells all of them. He’s not bias. Yeah I love my Beta but, because it’s awesome if it wasn’t I’d be riding something else
  3. On my 17 Beta 300rr I was riding up a gnarly single track up hill section and my front wheel locked up. Thought it was a brak e issue somehow. But what had happened was the small magnet came loose of the front rotor and jammed between the rotor and brake pad. Took me a minute to figure it out. And like 20 min to get it out and free up my wheel. So I bought a new magnet and it comes with a snap ring to hold it in place. I decided to add a small amount of JB Weld on it to avoid a repeat.
  4. I feel ya. Last March of 2017 I had a crazy crash like u. Was off for a full year. My leg will never be right.. hope you get better as soon as possible. There are times when you’ll be up and down.. just hang in there.
  5. Yup, was riding behind my house and I was coming to a stop. Standing on the pegs, front wheel jolted to the side. I dabbed my right foot and whammm. On the ground. Felt something wrong with my right knee. Ended up breaking the top of my Tibia off and MCL & PCL shredded. A 7 hour surgery, a year off work and I’m still limping. I still don’t know what actually happened.. [emoji849] I’ve been riding and racing since early 80’s so.. stuff happens I guess
  6. Badass! I have a 17 300 Race. I love the white on the 18’s so fresh
  7. Today I thought well maybe that’s the only bike he has access too. My bad. I really didn’t meant to be a dick. You’ve got a bike and many hours of fun on it. Sorry Bro. Good luck and have fun!
  8. I know it sounded bad wasn’t intended. My buddy had one years ago. Always had issues on hot start and super heavy.
  9. No offense intended but there are like so many newer bikes you could get. Why waste time on a 426?. Even if u make it right it still sucks
  10. I rode CR250 2 strokes forever. I felt it was a time for a change. A bike that was actually designed for off road not motocross. I went to buy a husky 300 or a 350. (Or KTM) I discovered Beta while at the dealership. Did research. In the end I bought a 300 Beta. I do really love it. I’d say do research as you are. But elevation changes present an issue for carburated bikes. But like the guy above said u can fix that with s Lectron Carb. The 300 rides light, handles well and saves me in technical situations all the time. I’m not saying 4 stroke are bad at all. It’s a preference thing. Good luck!
  11. That ladder at the end!
  12. I haven’t read all the comments but like 6 months ago I got a Garmin Dakota. All I’m gonna say is I’ve got over 300.00 into this thing and all the down loading of maps sucks. I hate it. Friggin pain in the ass. My Cell phone is way easier. Multiple apps to choose from and less headache. Personally Garmin sucks in my opinion. Out dated ant too much work. Waste of money
  13. At this point we (America) could easily put a good dirt bike brand out there but we need someone who’s Passionate about it and RiCh like Elon Musk money. All u have to do is use KTM/Honda etc as template and improve on it. But it takes CASH
  14. In southern Utah it’s rock and sand. I’ve been riding for a long time and as far as I’ve read and seen the only way to beat sand is be on the throttle. Slowness is not your friend. Keep the front light and steer with your rear wheel. Makes u tired but it’s the only way. My problem is with rock faces, rock steps and sharp edges I can’t drop my tire pressure or I’ll get flats. So you just make do.
  15. It’s like when someone dies, talking shit after isn’t cool. What do u expect. Unless u have personal knowledge shut the &%$#@! up. Have some class
