  1. Putting a new rear tire on a beta 300 2 stroke. Riding north idaho single track has a little bit of everything...hard rock, loose rock, hard pack, loose dirt, roots, mud. Looking for somebody who has ran a Sedona MX907 and a shinko 505 or 525 cheater and what your thoughts were. Anybody who hasn’t ran both but has ran one looking for your input as well. Also not sure if I should go with the 505 or 525. For the rest of the riding season here it will be mostly dry. The majority of the wet stuff is gone by June.
  2. Let me start by saying I know nothing about tire sizes. I’m going to put a 525 cheater and a goldentyre fatty on an xtrainer. The stock rear size tire is 140/80. 525 is only available in 120/100. Where will I see the difference compared to the stock tire? stock front tire is 80/100. Sizes available are 80/100, 90/100, 90/90. Again not sure where I will see the difference between these 3 different sizes. If I should just stick with the stock size or if one of the others would be better. Riding is idaho single track... hard rock, loose rocks, hard dirt, loose dirt, dry roots, wet roots, sometimes mud if it’s an early spring ride.
  3. Not in my area. It’s damn near impossible to find that without calling every dealer within 200 miles and haggling. And not just on betas. Where is your dealership? nevermind. Michigan, id buy from you if I lived there.
  4. I paid MSRP plus tax, no fees. I have no problem paying MSRP for a bike but I will always try to get the fees knocked off. A couple hundred bucks for set up is BS. It takes them an hour to do by a guy that makes 15 an hour and is just the cost of doing business. Destination fee I feel is also bs and is just another cost of doing business. Why does it cost 379$ to get a bike from California to Oregon and 379$ to get a bike from California to New York? It’s also speculated that dealers get rebated these fees from the manufacturer. Not sure if it’s true or not but it’s out there on the internet to read about if you’re interested. I don’t think the lack of fees is going to hurt the dealer. Dealers all over the country advertise no freight and set up fees and I doubt they are putting themselves at a loss. I’ll gladly pay MSRP for any bike but would aim to get the fees dropped or at least greatly reduced. Dirt bike dealers, car dealers, insurance salesman, all of them have one thing in common...they want to get as much out of you as they can. It’s their job.
  5. I see people putting kx85 fenders on. When I check fitment it’s earlier 140 models being able to be switched with the corrraponding kx85 year. Wonder if they will still fit on an 18?
  6. Bought my wife a KLX 140 and want to put some normal size 7/8 bars on it. I see most Renthal and pro taper bars are geared towards Moto. What are some good bends for woods riding?
  7. Edit: nevermind
  8. What kind of riser/adapter did you use?
  9. You get 60-80 miles on the stock 2.25 gal tank???
  10. Spark plug
  11. Spark plug pics. Air filter is pretty fresh. Not much dirt at all
  12. I have about 120 miles on a xtrainer. Out of the dealer the bike seemed to run fine so I never adjusted anything on the carb. I just adjusted my air screw per the manual and backed it out 2 full turns, previously it was only 1.5. After doing this it seemed to idle much better than it did before. Just went on my first ride since this adjustment and about 45 minutes into it the bike would just bog down and die. I’d have to sit there for a few minutes and play with the throttle while trying to start it and eventually it would start, I’d ride for about 5-10 minutes and it would happen again. When I would get going it would run much differently, there would be the occasional “ping“ and it would instantly slow the bike down and give a slight jolt feeling like if I were to just downshift. Not the constant ping if you would normally hear in a pinging engine, just the one ping and that feeling but it would happen every 10 seconds or so. Also the power delivery felt way different than before. After one time my bike bogged down and stalled my wife rode up behind me and said she smelled something weird but it was only brief. From here I just limped the bike straight back home. After an hour of total riding no splooge at all coming from the tail pipe. No leaks anywhere, no signs of damage, when the bike cools down I’ll pull the spark plug. I will put the air screw back to how it was before, is there anything else I should check for, could this be a different problem? Any chance I caused any damage? the first 45 minutes of the ride when I didn’t feel anything was pretty slow single track and some hill climbs. Then there was some open double track and I was high in 3rd and 4th gear and that’s when the problem started.

  14. So what exactly is that adjustment screw doing internally? And what should I be looking for when adjusting it? (Not the air adjustment screw)
  15. Has anyone found a bigger tank that fits besides the 2.9 IMS tank from beta USA? http://shop.americanbeta.com/p/2-9-gallon-fuel-tank-x-trainer an extra 0.6 gallons isn’t really worth 300$ to me.
