    Did you read about.....

    Hey dirtbird , I was reading the italian TM forum yesterday , there are some official news from Pesaro : 250/300 2s EN bikes will use efi , oil mixing system , electronic ev ( it seems with a brand new mechanism ) , 6 speed gear box , electric start , probably fuel tank will be placed in the back like 4 strokes en models , not sure about a counter balance shaft like KTM , same hgs exhaust , kyb forks , available in february 2019 , still carburetor available for US . Price for Italy 8990 euro taxes excluded . No one knows if they have already passed emissions tests . I've said a lot of times which is the problem : until now manufacturers had the possibility to make some tricks in order to pass Euro 4 ( blocked carb , fake exhaust , small air filter and so on ) , consider that the same happens with Tpi : bikes comes with a fake exhaust and a fake ecu program then the dealer makes some changes with a ktm program and job is done ( seen a couple of unboxings online ). So with efi you can still make some kind of tricks and pass Euro 5 , it doesn't exist a bike which can pass those tests without cheating ( Japanese street bikes are 4s direct injected but they don't pass 'officially' ) . So , unless Beta and Sherco find an alternative way to pass Euro 5 tests , there are only 2 ways : efi or manufacturing only XC carbed models which don't require any emission test because they are not street legal , I think GG will go with the 2nd . Thanks European Union... UK has made the biggest deal ever leaving you . A BMW M5 2019 with 625 HP gasoline twin turbo engine can pass easily but my Beta doesn't !!! COME ON ARE YOU SERIOUS ???!!!

    RR 300 gearbox oil ?

    You work with NILS , so you mean you are a local dealer or a supplier of some secret chemical substances? Just joking ... I got only 50 hours on my bike so I'm trying different things , for premix I'm looking for a product which would not get wet my spark plug during slow extreme rides ( with Motul and Belray it was terrible ) so I found an oil ( Gmotion , Russian but made in Italy at Gazprom Italy Spa factory ) which lubricates and leave engine clean enough and spark plug has a beautiful brown colour , if you say me that Nils has such a product I will certainly try it . Same for gearbox oil : - Motul : no thanks - next - Liquimoly : good , but not great -next - Motorex : I will try in these days , not a ktm fan but who knows - Nils : now I'm curious so I want to test it dirtbird , there is another italian company called WladOil which supplies lubricants for cars , bikes , industries ... do you know them ? I've met them months ago during a work meeting at my local Milwaukee electric tools supplier shop who keeps on stock their oil ...
  3. Hi , I got a Ciarlo carbon guard in the beginning but it doesn't protect at 100% your pipe , so my idea was to manufacture myself an aluminium skid pipe plate but it would have needed too much time ( 3D cad design , laser cut then welding with a lot of tests to find best fitting ) , so I've bought one from Carapaks and mounted together with my carbon guard , I think it's the best now . Consider that I ride only in hard places with rivers , rocks , tress ...

    RR 300 gearbox oil ?

    Do you believe me if I say I was convinced that NILS was american or something like that ? I'm trying different oils to find the best fitting , liquimoly , motul , now a guy from Boano told me to try Motorex , if it doesn't work maybe I will go with nils . Russian oil ( Gmotion ) for premix costs 13,50 euros and it works , this is why a I'm using it . I tried also Belray ( 25,00 euros ) but it was too 'heavy' expecially for low speed rides . Do you use nils products ?

    RR 300 gearbox oil ?

    Motul 10w-40 transoil expert , works fine on my TM but my Beta hates that oil , clutch works badly using it .

    RR 300 gearbox oil ?

    I'm using recommended liquimoly 10w-40 offroad oil for my RR 300 transmission , changed every 10 hours , it's ok but sometimes it seems that my bike doesn't love it - I've tried Motul , bad idea ... . Which oil do you suggest me ? I was looking at Motorex or Bardahl ... .

    New 300RR oil sprray

    All normal , same on mine . I solved using high temperature silicone inside the gummy joint between silencer and pipe , cleaned valve mechanism and changed jetting ( no oil injection on my bike ) , I use Gmotion 2 stroke synthetic oil , from Gazprom . To clean your bike from burned oil , use WD 40 or some gasoline , then wash everything with water .

    Tm 250 mx to enduro conversion

    Hi , I got Beta and Tm too ( RR 300 17 Race and Tm en 300 07 ) , pretty different bikes , Tm is more aggressive and made for fast classis enduro races like official GP or cross country , but Beta is extreme enduro king in my opinion and kills TM very easily on hard terrains ( no TMs at Erzberg , Romaniacs , Megawatt , ... , maybe 1 or 2 ) . Mx to enduro conversion needs time and money , and at the end you will obtain a cross country machine , not a pure EN model oviusly . Head , pipe , silencer , ecu , jetting , suspension , ignition timing , vforce spacers ... is what you need to change to get closer to the result you want . Ask to TM Gravity USA for more infos I'm sure they will supply all parts and technical help you need .
  9. Thanks to all of you for your help . Mmm I don't like the idea to shorten my silencer , or spend money for a Fmf shorty , anyway I will buy the 18 silencer plastic holder that's a beginning , then probably I will manufacture myself something , no problems for that at all . GP can you post some pictures of your forks protection ? With EE you mean enduro engineering ? I've seen their hand guards on Tokyooffroad but they look easy to be broken , or not ? Skf mud scrapers ? From Inntek ?
  10. Hey there , step by step I'm mounting on bike some protections , got only 50 hours so ... . I've started with carbon pipe plate , then kevlar engine covers , unbreakable levers and radiators guards , now full aluminium skid plate-pipe cover is coming ( and I will apply a polycarbonate plate to protect my swing arm ) . BUT , I've noticed that there is nothing good to protect my silencer , so I've seen the RR 250-300 2018 black plastic silencer holder ( it's very similar to KTM one ) , it looks great for me but I don't know if it fits to my 300 '17 , from Boano a person told me probably not but not sure at 100% , can anyone help me ? Or maybe an alternative product would be appreciated . Any other suggestions for extra protection ? I'm looking also to a solution which can reduce the possibility of bending my handle bar after crashes and ,not the last , a kind of fork saver , yes I'm building a war tank not an offroad bike ...
  11. Don't push it too hard now guys , HDR is free to think what he wants like everybody here . Pros are pros and we , poor sunday riders , are here talking . Maybe I will buy the Thumpertalk sticker which gives 2 hp more , if I cover completely my bike and miself with them I'm sure there won't be any hill too high ... endless power for sure ...

  12. Wow every time someone starts a topic for Beta-other brands comparison it starts a real war here ... Beta!No!Sherco!No!Ktm!No!Husqy!No!Yamaha!No!My bike has a flame thrower!You're a pussy mine is 4 wheel drived!Mine can fly and kick you like Chuck Norris!I don't have a bike but I'm a Pro trust me! It's really funny at the end ... all bikes are good , it depends on which fits to your requirements , but just to be clear : Beta it's not inferior to others brands , 20 000 bikes sold , this must mean something ... the perfect bike doesn't exist anyway . But if a enduro dirtbike works good in hard enduro , I think it's a good bike ( so TMs aren't ! ) Pros bikes are stock ? Come on ...
  13. Hey there , for enduro models it's available a simplified electric plant which is allows you to run the bike without blinkers , clacson and so on ... sometimes TM owners start to cut and connect wires in order to obtain the same effect , and at 90% they finish with problems like this ( same on my 300 2s ) , maybe you got this problem . If you payed a dealer for the bike , go back and let them solve it , for free , but it seems that you have electricity only in your plug and the rest is died , if it was working in the beginning I think that there are some wires that are not connected correctly ( take out gas tank and seat and check cables , also ones that are placed near the cylinder between radiators which comes out from ignition case ) Have you checked carb jetting ? Plug ? Electric wires with TM drawings ? Do you have mechanic EV or electronic ? I'm not a TM dealer or mechanic , just giving some ideas

    Smashed Muffler

    Heat gun works but this is not the best solution , I got the same problem with my fmf sticker so I've used this spray : MAFRA DECA FLASH , it melts all types of glue and you can take out the sticker easily ( you can use also diesel fuel ) , then you can clean the area from melted glue with a soft rag , finally apply new sticker and a couple of gummy tubes with zips around the muffler ( the same zips used to hold carb and airbox , they go inside tubes oviusly ) , you can make yourself or buy them , or buy a bigger plastic cover from acerbis , or maybe Boano https://www.amazon.it/Mafra-Flash-Pulisce-Catrame-Colla/dp/B00GA4Y9ZM https://www.petrogallimoto.com/shop/it/accessori/12404-Protezione-4MX-per-silenz.html https://www.kijiji.it/annunci/ricambi-moto/palermo-annunci-carini/anelli-salva-marmitta-scarico-terminale-moto-enduro-cross/108742103 https://m.ebay.it/itm/ACERBIS-PROTEZIONE-ANELLO-SILENZIATORE-SCARICO-CROSS-ENDURO-ARANCIO-/173354778498?_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1

    Beta vs KTM/Husq

    Hey there , again Beta vs Ktm ... . They both are good bikes , I can tell you this : 1st : you have to see bikes at your local dealer and do a simple thing : ask yourself how do you feel seating on them and what kind of feeling did you get from the bike when you saw it , I'm not talking about seat height , suspensions or others , just the real mystical feeling . I've seen the RR 2017 Race at Eicma and after 5 secs I've decided to buy it . 2nd : you need to understand how these bikes have been developed and designed : Beta has a long story with trial bikes and you can feel it when you ride one , a smaller and compact frame , very easy to move it with your knees , an engine with a lot of torque , very easy and fun ( fast or slow , calm or hungry , it depends on you ) , the perfect bike for hard enduro , the RR Race 300 has 50 HP more or less , very smooth , and this is why a lot or riders got one ( sunday riders or pros ) , you need to spend some money to reach Ktm power ( head , pipe , silencer , carb , some cylinder machining ) . Ktm , the monopolist about offroad market , for a good reason I suppose , carbed 300 exc has 53/54 HP , 57/58 on tpi six days , great quality and solutions , more aggressive engine with a big torque , good frame but a bit too bigger for me . Ktm has a bigger story on classic enduro gp and it's pretty clear , but now bikes has been updated and changed a lot in order to follow hard enduro , and they work ( but very expensive , what the hell ... ) . The real story is that Beta and Ktm engines are the same , talking about 250/300 2s : around 2008/09/10 Beta has 'stolen' a 2s engineer from Ktm to manufacture engines themself so they get some solutions from them , but using also their big know how from trial bikes , they also applied some good solutions on ev and cylinder , with a great result .
