    Its funny. I raced 80cc back in the day (late 70's), and could go anywhere on 30mm forks (imagine!). I had a 1978 CR-125M with 35mm forks, and went everywhere on it, and fast in many cases. All my 90's bikes had 43mm forks or bigger, it do not remember them being a problem. I think everyone has spent too much time inside this winter.

    I could not agree more. Between the "we must change it" crowd and the "its not designed for that" crowd, there has to be "this is going to be fun" crowd.

    I was told the first bikes would go to dealers that attended the November meeting. This could explain things. My dealer did not attend, so its May/June for me. Just sayin! Ride safe. TJ

    What is important to me is suspension, and what adjustments it has. There has been little info on this so far. From the detailed pictures, it looks like the fork has rebound and compression damping, the rear shock has compression, not sure about rebound. Funky the rebound appears on one fork leg, and compression on the other! Sitting next to the 300 RR is looks small! Can't wait to see one in captivity. Ride safe! TJ

    I want to ride it!!!!!!!!! I was at the Beta dealer the other day, he has a couple of 250 and 300 RR's sitting there. I was staring at them, trying to figure out what "10 percent smaller" means... I thank our Italian friend for posting desperatly needed information, I will buy them Grappa the next time in Italy!!! Ride safe guys. TJ

    I have pressed Tim Plig at Beta about the Stillwell upgrade for the BYOB XT's, but no details yet. Seems strange (to me) that this is not solidified yet. I cannot wait to have at a demo next month. Ride safe! TJ

    In New York, you can dual sport XT (or RR) with no trouble. I have a plated 92 RM-250!

    Not to start a pissing contest, but I am a Rotax Certified Tech (for airplane engines) and almost all of the Rotax 582 two-stroke engines used on ultralight and experimental aircraft I work on are running oil injection. I have worked on over 200 aircraft with various Rotax two-stroke engines. The 503/447 are almost always premix (for the reasons you stated), but the 582 is almost never premixed. Also, I have installed several oil injection systems on premix engines (503's) with no failures. I do know of two definite oil injection failures: root cause was stuff in the oil tank, one was a sliver of foil from the oil bottle, the other a small piece of plastic. Putting a filter in the oild line would address this issue. I run oil injection on my RG-250, RZ-350, and three snow mobiles without issue. I use these machines all the time. All of my snow mobiles have at least 4000 miles on them each. My first RZ-350 had 70,000 miles on it when it was stolen, oil injected the whole time. I read the Beta system will have an indicator if not working correct, which is something that other oil injection systems do not do. The best we can see there is low oil. I am buying a CT, and not worried about the injection. It is very convenient, and is better for the engine over the long run. Ride safe. Thank you. TJ
