    Beautiful new bike! Congratulations. Race edition, correct? It will be nice to see how the closed cartridge Sachs perform. I was looking at a 300rr race edition my self. Awesome!

    Greetings! Are you guys still staging at coarse gold? There’s a fire headed northeast out of Castsic. It looks to be heading towards DWF. I’d like to join the ride if possible?

    2007 YZ450 Overheating

    I used to ride a WR426 and had a similar issue. The issue developed post crash on a day ride in the desert. On the return loop to camp I noticed something glowing at a railroad crossing. I looked down and my header was bright orange. Upon inspection i could see it was folded tight to the head. The pinch was causing some serious restriction!It was around 40 degrees so I don’t remember feeling the heat. That ended my riding for the weekend. I replaced the header pipe with an FMF unit and the popping and glowing ceased. So I’d consider replacement or repair. While waiting on parts I’d go through the carb just to be sure your not running lean as well.

    2016 BETA 500RS stock suspension clicker values

    I’m going to a local tuner tomorrow. N2Dirt in Santa Clarita. He came recommend by a friend and a repair shop. I’m going to see what he says. I’m hoping it’s fixable for a reasonable amount. I’m missing my Asian imports right now. Your setup is sounds great, just out of my price range. Besides for the money, the suspension should at least be rideable. Thanks Again

    2016 BETA 500RS stock suspension clicker values

    Can I re-valve myself? Or is the only option a suspension service? Thank you for the reply.
  10. Hello All I logged my first ride on the BETA yesterday, it was also my first ride in 10 years. It was great! However I now remember the things that need to be adjusted and the learning curve that comes with it. That being said I have a couple questions regarding suspension. But first let my give a little info. The bike was bought through BYOB and included a re-spring from the factory of .54 fork springs and a 6.2 rear spring. I know this because the stock springs were included when I bought the bike as was the BYOB paperwork. This weight profile fits me well, maybe I'm even a couple pounds light. But during my first ride I G'd out the bike a couple times pretty hard. I need to firm things up as the bike feels pretty loose for my style of riding. I'm riding mostly single track in Socal. What I don't want to do is throw money at it. At least until I know what I need if I need it. My strategy was to set it to factory, set the sag properly, then tweek settings and if needed change oil. If all else fails to yeild an acceptable ride, then I will throw money at it. I'll take tire recommendations as well front and rear please? 2016 BETA 500 RS Factory re-spring Desert tank 240lbs. rider kitted out (boots, helmet, chest protector,camel back etc.)
    Greetings I recently purchased a set of these RHINO tie downs and I am very pleased with their function. I have been using tie downs for work and also for motorsports for about the last 25 years. These were purchased to replace a set I had custom made by race car safety belt manufacturer. I discovered the set I had were not working properly when I went to pick up my "new to me" gently used dual sport. It seems the ratcheting mechanism had gotten sticky. Also I was missing my soft sling that I used to choke the bars to prevent the hooks from marring the bars. Well while I was searching I found these rhino hooks with built in soft sling and spring gates on the hooks. The spring gates are awesome because it keeps the hooks from coming off the d-rings in the truck or trailer when you slack off. This is especially helpful when loading up solo! I used to prefer ratchet straps but now I am thinking these cam buckles have their place as well. No worries though, you can get these straps either way. In addition they are AMERICAN made and fairly priced. If your looking for a set of motorcycle straps give these a try.

    I pulled the trigger on a used 2016 500 RS

    Agreed. I need to tune up my skills as I haven’t logged any miles on two wheels since 2007. In addition I want to give the bike a shake down run and check for gremlins!
