  1. Never mind ... the inner ID is too narrow
  2. Does anyone know if a Fox Racing Shox spring found on one of their shocks for a given bike has the same dimensions as a spring on the OEM shock for that same bike? Or are they specific to Fox Racing Podium RC3 shock, i.e. different dimensions than the OEM spring?
  3. Thanks for all of the replies!
  4. See picture ... should I be worried? I noticed this after transporting our bikes this past weekend. I'm guessing the 5-6 hours of transport, some on bumpy road could have "tamped" some of the oil at the end of the injection tube. I've seen an air bubble or two since I've had the bike but not this. Do I need to "prime" the tube full of oil? Best way to do that? Have I asked too many questions? Any experience or thoughts on this would be much appreciated

  6. P3 frame grip guards on my new '17 300rr . . .
  7. The best tuner for you probably lives close enough for to drive to his house and help you determine whether your bike can be set up as is, BEFORE he touches a shim. I've spent a lot of money over the years sending suspensions off to be revalved only to figure out recently that I likely wasted money along the way. Nothing replaces a good tuner that can actually witness you riding on your bike and make adjustments accordingly. Try to find out who in your area the local racers and riders like, there's a good chance you'll be fortunate enough to hear a few names. 'Could be all you need are the right springs and someone who knows how to adjust the clickers
  8. I've been waiting for my dealer to contact me when my 300rr has been released from customs and enroute. You've just given me hope!!
  9. That's worth a look. I've encountered shifting issues that "feel" like something's wrong, even not working correctly that end up being related to flaws. My oldest son's '14 RMZ250 wouldn't shift up past second during a harescramble, ended up being the way the shift assembly realigns between shift - had to get creative with the "centering post" on that. Then I had a burr on a KX100's shift assembly that caused notchy feeling problems for quite a while until I spent the time dissecting the shifting mechanism and polished off that silly burr. Eventually my '17 300 RR is going to arrive so, having spent a bunch of time on a KTM 300, I hope to be able to distinguish shifting performance since my foot is calibrated thusly. Don't know how long that will be (unfortunately) but it's an interesting problem that shouldn't be happening.
  10. I concur, I had a Barnett clutch basket with the stainless steel inserts on an RM-250 a few years back. After a riding season there was no noticeable wear. But . . . is a non-OEM Beta basket available? The Rekluse manual kit does NOT include a basket, only the hub, steels, springs, and pressure plate. 'Not saying that there should be an aftermarket basket out there; in fact, I talked to Rekluse and the reason the product options for the Betas is more limited than other bike mfgs is because of Beta makes quality components.
  11. Today the dealer tells me that the shipment of Betas are "sitting in Customs" and that the minute they are released shipping will start. Sigh . . .
  12. I'm ordering the Reflex Racing handguards for my '17 300. As I see it (and I could be wrong), the one downside to clamping the ends of the bar to the near-center is it doesn't allow ANY flex in the bars themselves and I think that little bit of flex helps with vibration; the Reflex handguards have a section of cable that connects the wrap-around to the center clamps and permits more flex. Reflex Racing claims that the bars can be reoriented if knocked out of place after a crash much more easily. The other reason I like the Reflex Racing setup is how it appears to be able to accommodate controls/cables better. I anticipate adding one of the Clake items (not sure if it's gonna be the SLR or the One Light Clutch) and they are a little bulkier. Very stout setup! http://reflexracing.com
  13. I'm waiting for a '17 300RR, the dealer told me earlier this week the BetaUSA states first bikes are arriving Sep 1-2 in CA. After that it's customs and shipping. Safe bet is mid-September, maybe I'll get lucky and it'll be sooner.
  14. Regarding the Rekluse, I've had them in a KTM, in a Yamaha, and a Suzuki. Had nothing to do with the quality of the OEM clutches. I'd like to see them make the Torque Drive for the Beta's.
