  1. To answer my own question the motion pro T3 cable #10-3000 fits. its the +5.3" Ktm cable that is used to run cable in front of bars. Just confirmed this with Beta dealer.
  2. no im in canada, hoping a ktm or another bike uses a similar cable. Beta stuff is harder to get here and they want a premium for it.
  3. My wife is begging me for another KX100. She misses her old one bad. I guess I also have a "Unicorn" for a wife. Just need to save up a few bucks so I can get her back out on the trails.
  4. from Betas FB Page NEW RR MY 2019 - An even more advanced, complete range #betamotor (ENG) The new Beta RR my 2019 arrives on the market with a broader range than in previous years. The Tuscan bike builder, in fact, hasn't just been working towards a more refined product with significant technical improvements: it's also introduced a new 200 cc engine. A 2-stroke that, following the recent introduction of the 125 cc, completes the product range, which now features no less than eight different models. The Beta philosophy is to make sure each engine size has its own distinct personality so as to meet the specific needs of every enduro rider. Given the engine size and low weight, the newly arrived RR 200 2T has inherited the chassis set-up of the 125. More specifically, the frame, in chrome molybdenum with double cradle split above the exhaust port, has been designed for small engine displacements. It features revised main dimensions and ensures optimal engine positioning. The chassis, an offshoot of its smaller 125cc sister - is characterized by a special layout that aims to optimize weight distribution and engine dynamics. This model, thanks to the introduction of the automatic oil injector and the electric start, it's a great all-around bike for those looking for some epic Enduro or off-road free time fun. The new 200cc, showed in preview during the Press Presentation of the Enduro MY 2019 range, will go into production during the next Autumn. Of course, there's been no lack of upgrades across the existing range either, with improvements stemming from extensive race experience: in the last two years Beta has won two EnduroGP Manufacturers World Championships, an Enduro3 World Title and EnduroGP title with Steve Holcombe, an Enduro Junior World Title with Brad Freeman and two wins in the Assoluti d’Italia. Work has focused on both the engine and the chassis setup, with particular attention being paid to the suspension – front and rear – now fitted with top-drawer ZF Sachs components which are much more advanced than those used in the past. KEY RR MODEL FEATURES: 2-STROKE 125cc The smallest bike in the Beta range, the lightest and easiest to handle of them all. In pure racing style, suitable for both young riders coming up from the lower categories and more expert riders looking for a fun bike. 200cc The chassis setup and engine derive from its smaller sister, while providing broader torque and ensuring extremely low weight and great handling but with decidedly higher torque and power. Oil injection and electric start make this a complete bike that is just perfect for Enduro enthusiasts. 250cc Ideal for those looking for a gentler 2-stroke bike with slightly less power and torque than the top-of-the-range models to ensure excellent handling. 300cc Made for those who like big-displacement engines with outstanding torque at any rpm. The perfect bike for those who enjoy riding long distances on smooth or fast terrain. 4-STROKE 350cc This is the easiest-to- handle bike in the 4- stroke model range; it favors high-rev riding while providing a very linear power output. 390cc Delivering an excellent handling- power mix, its winning feature is outstanding traction. The engine is very unique in that it feels lighter yet still provides added torque and power. 430cc High performance engine that gives the best of itself when the rider exploits the long gearing and superb torque characteristics. 480cc This bike expresses itself best in wide open spaces. Its characteristics are similar to the 430 model but with even higher torque and power, suitable for larger riders that are more advanced. Following intensive across-the-range development and technical refinement, the biggest new features on the RR my 2019 models can be summed up as: Engine 2-Stroke: • New engine control unit (ECU): guarantees a more powerful spark at high revs, improving combustion and engine performance. • Clutch actuator with wider diameter: gives the clutch lever a softer, more responsive feel. • New BPV exhaust valve opening adjustment (on 300 cc only): allows extremely linear power delivery, creating a high-performance engine that is easy to use under extreme conditions. • BPV centrifugal unit contrast springs kit (on 300 cc only): supplied with the bike to extend the bike's scope for personalization according to the rider's needs. Thanks to springs with a spring rate lower than the standard ones, performance is better at mid-high revs, giving fuller, more decisive power delivery. • Stiffer clutch cover (on 125 cc only): improves operation and produces a more precise bite-release action. • New expansion chamber (on 250/300cc only): ensures increased performance throughout the rev range. Engine 4-Stroke: • New throttle control: designed by Domino exclusively for Beta for improved engine response to minimal throttle twists, giving optimized traction even on the most difficult terrain. • New mapping for all engine sizes combined with the excellent response of the new throttle control. • Clutch actuator with wider diameter: gives the clutch lever a softer, more responsive feel. Chassis: • New ZF Sachs (ø 48 mm) fork with new adjustment system: allows positioning of the compression, rebound and spring preload adjusters on the upper fork cap; they can be reached while sitting on the bike and do not require tools. The fork also benefits from a new packing system which ensures greater stability and a slider with special anodizing that reduces friction and increases durability. • New fork shoes (yoke): stiffer and lighter. • New fork guards: designed together with the shoe to combine practicality and design. • Fully redesigned ZF Sachs shock: with more compact ø 46 mm piston, about 300g lighter. The new piston has been designed to ensure more stable operation as the oil temperature varies and increased sensitivity to enhance comfort and traction. The small upper base and reservoir have also been redesigned to rationalize the system and minimize weight and bulk. New spring is also lighter. • New graphics and colors. RR 200 cc 2-stroke As already mentioned, the introduction of the 200cc engine has broadened the RR my 2019 range. These 2-stroke engines have, in addition to the above, the following distinctive advantages: Engine: • Double piston rings (ø 62 mm): component designed to ensure high rigidity and reliability; the choice of double rings provides a better seal at the low and medium revs that typify Enduro riding. • Beta progressive valve: made-in-Beta system characterized by a special relationship between the opening of the main flap and that of the side boosters. The delayed opening of the boosters enables excellent performance progression throughout the engine's rpm range. • Crankshaft with polyamide inserts: favors lightness and ensures optimum filling of the crankcase, boosting performance and reliability. • Cylinder: has an exhaust flange system as on the bigger engines, enabling better control of frontal piston-flap-cylinder play. By keeping this value to a minimum, it is possible to achieve a significant low-rev performance boost by reducing gas leakage. • Aluminum demountable cylinder head dome: rigid and lightweight solution made possible by shifting the engine mount on to the cylinder. The geometry of the combustion chamber is designed to ensure a high-efficiency thermodynamic cycle and obtain the best compromise between responsiveness at low-to-medium revs and during spurts. It also facilitates fine tuning and replacement of the combustion chamber. • Die-cast crankcase in aluminum alloy: the casing geometries were designed according to an innovative layout in terms of the relative position of components and with a view to maximum weight reduction without compromising structural strength. Considerable attention was focused on the main bearing area to ensure correct wall rigidity in order to withstand the stresses transmitted by the crankshaft. • Die-cast crankcase covers in magnesium alloy: ensure very low weight and optimal surface finish. It also proved possible to adopt this solution for the inner clutch cover thanks to isolation of the water pump from this element. • Vforce4 reed valve packet: the stoppers ensure high reliability without compromising performance. • 6-speed dog-box transmission: specially developed for small Beta engines with gears made from forged blanks to provide mechanical strength and reliability while still keeping size and weight extremely low. • Clutch: multi-disc in oil bath with reverse opening, actuator integrated into the outer cover. This is a system designed for maximum engine lightness and compactness. Thanks to low- slung positioning, it ensures reduction of power unit size and a significant centralization of weight, crucial for good chassis dynamics. • Exhaust system: to optimize the 2-stroke engine's torque and power curves, the Beta R&D Department has developed a special system dedicated to this engine size. • Electric start: perfect start-up convenience whatever the situation. • Automatic oil injection: eliminates the need for a fuel-oil premix. Chassis: • Geometry of the new upper coupling points: various solutions were investigated and developed before reaching a final one that has allowed a reduction in engine-generated vibration while maintaining good engine-frame system stiffness. • New ZF Sachs (ø 48 mm) fork with new adjustment system: allows positioning of the compression, rebound and spring preload adjusters on the upper fork cap; they can be reached while sitting on the bike and do not require tools. The fork also benefits from a new packing system which ensures greater stability and a slider with special anodizing that reduces friction and increases durability. • New fork shoes (yoke): stiffer and lighter. • New fork guards: designed together with the shoe to combine practicality and design. • Fully redesigned ZF Sachs shock with more compact ø 46 mm piston. The new piston has been designed to ensure more stable operation as the oil temperature varies and increased sensitivity to enhance comfort and traction. The small upper base and reservoir have also been redesigned to rationalize the system and minimize weight and bulk. New spring is also lighter. • Filter box air boot: designed for this engine type, it improves flow across the entire rev range, even at low revs. • Engine guard: made from tough yet light polyamide, it features excellent shielding to stop mud getting between the engine and the guard itself. • Fuel tank: compared to larger models, a slightly smaller tank has been adopted to improve on-board ergonomics while maintaining good fuel autonomy. • Cooling system: specifically designed for this bike, features new pipes and radiators with specially shaped reservoirs to fit the small size of the motorcycle. • Nissin braking system: extremely powerful and configurable, the same as on the rest of the Enduro range. Availability Starting: mid-June.
  5. Does anyone know what throttle cables can be used with the 2T RR's. No beta dealers near me. I have a 16 250 RR RE. Thanks
  6. Don't know if it's a common problem but I'm 6'1" 210 lbs and when I re-sprung my 300 I ordered correct shock spring weight but stock spring length. Screwed it all the way down and still couldn't get rider sag correct. I'd consider a longer spring. Maybe this is something I should of known? Has anyone else has this issue? Im 6 '1" and 205lb no gear. I race a 2016 250RR Race. I had the same issue. I ended up going up 2 spring stiffness's front and back , it worked out perfect.
  7. My ground wire came apart in the exact same place. It killed my Earth X battery.
  8. Polisport
  9. Got a chance to put on my new plastics and graphics. pretty happy with how it turned out.
  10. Hey guys, i live in Ontario Canada. I have a 16 RR 250 Race Edition. It is green plated (offroad) i would like to swap it to blue plated (street legal). I have a few questions. I know the 250-300RR's and Xtrainers are street legal here. Have two friends with them legal. But both had them original plated blue when bought new. Mine was plated green from new. I have mixed stories about you can and cannot do it. Some say once its green you cant go blue. I came across this: "I've heard and read many people say that you can not switch back to blue once you switch to green plates and offroad only (brown) ownership. THIS IS NOT TRUE. what you need to switch back: -safety inspection - affidavit describing the bike (color, motor size, safety features etc) signed by a lawyer or guarantor - picture of the "compliance sticker" which I learned is the sticker by your VIN (on the front forks for 230l) which just says that the bike was manufactured for the road and is DUAL PURPOSE. -OR if you have no sticker than you need a letter from MANUFACTURER not the dealer, stating that the bike was made for dual purpose.MTO made it clear that dealer and manufacturer are two different entities. don't know how that works with a honda...but compliance sticker is the easier Way to do it." This matches up with what i have heard from a few people. So my questions are, is the Race edition even streetable like the standard RR and I looked all over my bike and cant find the compliance sticker. Just the vin etched into the frame on the neck. If i must contact Beta does anyone have any contact info for Beta itself, not a dealer? I would love to change over to blue, i miss out on some rides do to having to ride connecting roads between trails. Thanks
  11. +1 for Langs, Robs a great guy, Great Service
  12. I like this idea, have a Beta General Forum then two sub forums, 2T and 4T
  13. They were wore to the leads. Nothing left
  14. Dont count out the 250 RR or 250 RR RE, Im 6'1" and 200lb and race a 250rr Race Edition. This thing is a tractor down low, i can chug it up just about anything with no stalling issues. Its a little more flickable in the tight stuff. When i first got it i was set on turning it into a 300 but i have no need to. Its a great bike as is. Its a little pipier than the 300 so i get my MX fix with it as well.
  15. My P-Tech skid plate came in, so i installed that. This thing is solid! Perfect fit.
