  1. Just bought my first beta! So far (99km,6.1hrs) I have no real complaints. Having been a 450 fuel injection rider I am a little new to jetting and carb tuning. Jetting is stock at this point and it seems to run pretty clean. I ride at 5000-8000ft elevation and summer temps are 70-85deg f. Bike has no hesitation and is very smooth, my only concern is the pipe drool that is running down the silencer and dropping onto the swing arm. Is this normal? I'm running my pre mix at 48:1 synthetic mix (which is a little different than spec at 50:1 but seeing that it is new I wanted to be on the oily side) another question is concerning gearing. Stock is 13-49. I was recommended by the dealer to try12-49 but I don't think I need to go that low. 1st gear is great, but the gap from 1to 2 seems to be a bit too much. I can slip the clutch to help but I wonder if 1-2 teeth more on the rear sprocket would be perfect for this minor gap in gearing. Thanks
  2. Hi guys , Mounting and dismounting the rear wheel I`ve broken the safety piece in the rear brake . I cannot see the piece in the Beta parts Diagram. It`s ok to ride without this piece ? Thanks
  3. This is my first post so hopefully I have this in the right area. So I'm looking to buy a new bike in a few months and can't decide what Beta to buy. I am going between an xtrainer, a 300rr or the 390rs. I know they have slightly different areas that they excel. I am coming from a 1998 xr400 and an xr250. My question is do any of these new bikes I am looking at have good off idle torque, like slow speed tractor torque. Both my xr's could chug along and climb almost anything but they are heavy and getting older. I dabbled in trials for a bit so I really like the low end pull of thoses 2 strokes, but I also have had a few mx bikes that had nothing down low. What are the beta 2 stokes like. Also does the 390 have a pretty low first gear if I go the 4 stroke route. I ride some pretty rough single track in Georgetown ca if anyone is familiar with that. Lots of switch backs and no room to get speed over some of the obstacles. I am more of a technical rider, don't do much high speed stuff so I'm not to worried about the soft suspension of the xtrainer. For backround I am 200 lbs, 6ft, I'm a decent rider but don't race or anything. I have had loads of Japanese bikes and I am wanting to try out a European enduro, this would be my first new bike. Hope the post isn't to long. Thanks
  4. I should start out by saying that I am 42 years old. I have about 3 years of off road riding experience (including the last year and a half with the Beta) in the last 24 years. Living in Kansas there is no reason to own a dirt bike if you can't travel. So as life changed and I met some guys that went on regular motorcycle trips to Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado, and Utah. I decided to take the plunge. After some research and some help from TT I ignored my KTM riding friends advise, and bought the 2017 Beta 500 RR-S. In a short amount of time I was easily keeping up with my friends who have been riding for many decades more than me. I am an aggressive rider (or so I am told), but I feel like my Beta constantly makes me a better rider than I actually am. It is extremely ridable, finds traction everywhere, and goes up anything you point it at. I am not talking about Kansas hills, I am talking about some of the best riding in America. The bike got it's first real test @ Taylor Park Colorado. It went up everything from Star trail, to timberline, to Flag mountain. With a little clutch slip there was nothing that it wouldn't do, it just stayed under me and kept me side by side with my much more talented riding companions. I can't stop smiling. The 500 is amazing. It is what everyone says it is. I read all the opinions about other bikes but I couldn't imagine that another bike could be more fun or capable. This last winter with the bike tucked away in the garage I began to read more and more in the 2t forums and was confronted by a couple of 2t douche bags that challenged me to not knock it till I tried it. So I found a used 2016 300 RR and bought it. To begin with it was WAY different. I could tell immediately around the house (30 acres) that I did not know how to ride a two stroke. I was slightly titillated but mostly terrified. I know it is not the hardest hitting bike made but it felt like it to me. This culminated in a loop out that required a new sub-frame, air box, plastics, and some ice strategically applied to several parts of my body. When the bike and I healed, we scheduled a multi day trip to Chadwick Missouri to learn a little about each other. I can only say, WOW. This bike is amazing. While the weight of the two bikes is similar the 300 feels much lighter. I don't know if it is the quickness of the 2t or the way the motor is set up, but it feels much more nimble. This does not mean that I felt the 500 was lacking. It did everything well, I can't explain it but the 300 was so so sweet. I expected to have to keep it reved out going up the steep technical trails and that was not the way it was at all. Many of the steep technical trails were easily dispensed with in second or third gear ( I know, you told me). All of this was done at low RPM"s. The bike making about as much nose as a sewing machine, just purring up the hills. This goes for hills like Dairy Queen, Strawberry hill, and many of the rocky climbs with large rock ledges. I was climbing things that my buddies wanted no part of. It was incredible. We met up with someone who rode with us for a while who claimed to be an intermediate B rider and the Beta and I were keeping up just fine and climbing hills that he wanted nothing to do with. This is not to promote myself at all. These bikes are amazing. With a little bit of practice of some of the skills from Barry's cross-training vids and the tips some of you gave me combined with these great bikes and you can accomplish a lot. At the end of the day I love my 500, buuuuuuut the 300 is stupid. I can't imagine grabbing the 500 unless I have some extended distance to cover at speed. The 500 is awesome for going 30 miles at 60mph to a technical trail..... but the 300 IMHO is so much more fun when you get there. In two weeks I am going to Arizona and then to Moab for a week and will be taking the two bikes but unless it changes the 300 is getting the nod for the majority of the riding. Thanks for all the input from the TT community. These are just my observations if you disagree, you are wrong. My opinion is just that, my uneducated opinion. Peace, Gary
  5. Does anyone in Beta land have first hand experience with the Carapaks (Duel Gravity) skid plate plate / pipe guard combo for the 2013 - 2019 300RR? It looks pretty stout and I like the fact that it ties into the frame down tubes to provide additional protection against front and side hits. However, I've only been able to find one or two threads from folks who have actually used the Carapaks. Any general issues with fitment? I have a secondary question regarding clearance between the Carapaks skid plate and clutch cover. I'm running a P-Tech clutch cover guard, which protrudes a bit from the stock clutch cover. From pictures on the Carapaks website, I just can't tell how much clearance exists. Does anyone have experience with this combination? Thanks
  6. Hi, I have cracked both of the spring guides on my 2017 300rr sachs OC forks. I need any help or suggestions on sourcing the spring guides separately, as you can see from the parts picture I can only buy the complete damper assemblies. Just can't justify about $900 for 2 plastic parts. Does anyone know if any other fork brand (eg WP KYB SHOWA) spring guides can fit into the sachs OC ? Cheers
  7. I recently fitted my 300rr with Flexx bars and noticed the brake line fitting would rub on the bars. I was pretty limited in what position I could run my master cylinder. I did a search on here and found that some people had tweaked the brake line fitting. Before I ever had a chance to try that I noticed I was getting a very slow leak around the banjo bolt which I assume was from the fitting being pressed up against the bars. I ordered a Core brake line off ebay (listed for 2015 300rr). The fitting on this brake line is bent a little differently and provides much more clearance. The line is also custom made to order so you get to choose the color of the different parts of it for a little extra bling.
  8. Hi guys, I have 17 300 and the stock exhaust had a few good hits. I noticed it wasnt sitting perfectly flush on the head so i bought an fmf gnarly pipe. but it looks like that one isnt sitting perfectly flush on the head either. I goes all the way in the head but you can tell its crooked a bit. Is that a normal thing?

  10. 2018 EnduroCross season wrapped up last weekend in Boise Idaho. As promised a race/season report for Ty Cullins and his Beta 300RR. We ended the season with 3 races in a row. Denver, Everett Wa. which is just north of Seattle and Boise Idaho. I think I already talked about Denver where he put a good ride in for 6th. After Denver we drove home so I could work for 3 days before heading north to Washington. It was a crazy week with my Mom in the hospital, trying to get ready for the next race and on top of all that the transmission went out on my van Tuesday night! I called up Beta and they where awesome in letting us borrow a van! That really saved us, otherwise we would have had to drive Ty’s old F-250 with bikes in the back unsecured and in the rain. Beta really helped us out there. Evertt was a good technical track and Ty was excited to race it. Unfortunately in the first practice he was just way off. Not sure what the deal was, but 2nd practice he started riding like himself and ended up Qualifying 7th which is just fine. He finally had a drama free heat race. Got a good start and just brought it home in 3rd place. That gave him 7th gate pick for the main. With that he almost pulled the holeshot! Came out of the 2nd turn in 2nd. From there he quickly got passed by Cody and settled into 3rd for a few laps. At that point his pace wasn’t quick enough and the pack started to close in on him. A couple mistakes and he dropped to 7th. From there he got things together and picked it back up and worked his way back to 4th. He and Noah Kepple had a great battle until Noah messed up the Matrix. At the end he was making time up on 3rd place and could see him in the same lane by the end. Ended up 4th and really happy with that! With that finish he was 6th in points. Just 2 behind Geoff Aaron in 5th and only 2 ahead of Noah Kepple in 7th so it was tight. For the Junior Championship he opened that up to an 8 point gap over Cooper Abbott (Destry Abbott’s son).

  12. Hi guys, I'm finally picking up my 2017 300RR before the weekend and I'm trying to work out which mods are essential for this bike. Of those essential mods I'm also looking for the brand of choice. I'm based in Victoria, Australia so any suggestions for parts that are quickly and easily available here would be awesome! Thanks!
  13. Quick question, I've got a 2016 300RR (open cartridge) and I'm putting some fresh fork oil in. (first timer) Do I need to remove the cartridge assembly to get the oil out of the cartridge as well? Or can I just pop the cap dump out the old yank the spring, fill to desired MM then toss the spring back in throw cap on and call it good? Additionally I'd like to remove some of the preload that apparently these bikes are coming with in the forks, I understand there's just one nylon washer under the cap, can this just be removed to drop the preload (forks are harsh in the top 1/3 thus the oil change to 5w and wanting to drop the preload)? Or does it need to have that washer in there so I'll need to get a thinner one / grind that one down? Also unrelated, what do you guys do to keep your seats clean? Mines gotten really dingy and black stained from my pants. I see pics of guys betas all the time with their seats looking like their brand new (florescent red 🤣) but no matter what I try it seems I can't get the dark staining out.
  14. Disclaimer: This is my first e-start bike. ? I can not find a std fuse on my bike. Where are they hiding? Only one I see is on the external charging cord Maybe my battery finally puked? It is the original battery (April 2016). Worked strong as could be when I rode it 3 weeks ago. The external charging jack to the battery shows continuity through the + & - cables. The battery charger flashes red like it doesn't recognize it is plugged in to the battery. Bikes starts up fine with the kicker. Real easy as a matter of fact. Blinkers, lights, horn all work while it is running. My flashers used to flash without the bike running and they don't now. I am not great with electrical testers to know if my battery is bad. I never know what to set the damn thing at. Any tester setting suggestions? One confused Rhino in WA.
  15. I couldn't find a resource where people have put their 300's jetting. I thought it would be good for us to compile a list of jetting that seems to be working for everyone, so people can improve their own. There are a lot of 300s out there and we can come up with a good list I presume. Let's try and keep this civil and just post our jetting. Let's use a format like this: Bike: 2017 Beta 300RR Race Elevation: 3000'-6000' Temperature: 45-70 degrees Pilot Jet: 38 Needle and Clip: JD Blue 2nd clip Main Jet: 162 Premix and Ratio or OI: Amsoil Dominator 50:1 How does it run: Great, no spooge and idles smooth. Other Modifications: Set float to 8mm and FMF Q Shorty Spark Arrestor
  16. Hi guys. Almost time to change the original chain and sprockets. Just curious what brand people go for? There seems to be a fair amount of choice. I like the standard gearing, and want the lightest chain and sprockets you can get for the bike. What are you guys running/ would recommend? Thanks.
  17. 2nd week of ownership on my 2018 Beta 300rr and I have to say, so far I am loving this thing. Switched from a 2016 YZ250X which I loved, but this machine is a beast. The power comes on like a freight train and never stops. Brought bike home - Took what looked like it needed attention off and addressed any lubrication issues. Either my dealer or Beta USA or Beta ITALY did a great job of providing adequate lubrication on all the necessary parts. Linkage, bearings, head, bla bla bla. Didn't have to add anything. However, the white goo I believe either to be silicone or lithium grease the bike was covered in was kind of annoying to clean off. I didn't want to do a full hose, soap, and dry so I opted for a roll of blue shop towel. It came off easy but was in every nook and cranny. Checked all the fittings and bolts and torque specs, which were so kindly stamped on applicable areas like the triples and such. Cool little touch. Everything was good and in spec. Motor had 2 hours on it from the factory/dealer and for whatever reason the pipe to silencer connection was kinda messy? Apparently this is supposed to be cinched closed with zip ties, and as such it kinda sprayed 2 stroke mix on the motor, not a lot but enough to be like "WTF mate......" Cleaned it off, checked the pipe and silencer fit, but not much available room to adjust the connection. Emailed Beta USA and they said to zip tie it, and they would be emailing/calling the dealer as they should have done this. So I will be zip tying this in the future. 1st tank of gas is mixed 100:1 even with the oil injection as "insurance" in case it faults. Set the suspension for 102mm race sag naked and it worked out to be 110mm race sag in gear. Woot. I don't think I need a new rear spring. The "Work Stress Workout Plan" in full effect, 10lbs down. Banged on a aluminum pipe guard, as no 18 products are out, but 2017 Bullet Proof rad guards fit. Threw them on. Installed on some Cycra CRM's that are beat to piss, because I assume this thing is going down once I hit the single track. Checked the skiddy......its like a food tray from McDonald's hahahaha. O well better than nothing. Dropped tires from 35 PSI (what the piss?) to 12 front 10 rear. Michelin FIM spec Enduro tires...... shorter knobs, and less knobs to be gentler on the trails. Save the planet I guess? VE33 110 rear and a M59 front are in the corner of my garage, begging to go on. Have not run a VE33 but hear good things. YZ has had MT16's on the rear and I love them, but alas I have ADHD and like to try new things. Ride .5 - turned it on, warmed it up, did 2 laps of the house, giggled, and put it away. Neighbors looked confused, GF laughed at me, and asked when the YZ was going......I laughed and asked when she's going..........stern looks exchanged, dogs run out side and interrupt and I chase them for 15 minutes. Ride 1 - 1 hour-ish Took the bike out on some local rail trail for about 25-30 miles breaking the motor in. First tank was meh, felt lean on the bottom, and a touch rich up top.....sadface. Good on the pipe, just really ring dingy off the bottom, surging. Didn't hammer it, but kept a good 35-40mph clip over sandy rail trail, whoops, and chop. Tracks amazing for a bike designed for the twisty gnarly stuff. Got home changed the transmission oil and saw lots of shiny sparkles...... but not to worry, as I have experienced this with all my bikes on the first ride. The drain plug with the magnetic tip is awesome. Thanks for the free security Beta. Changed the oil, checked the bike over for loose parts and found nothing. Man this kick stand tip is lame, its basically a javelin...... gave her a first clean, silencer was a little spoogey but now shes fresh to death. DAMN BOOTS! The aluminum that rubbed off the YZ on my boots, is now on my sexy Beta. Kill me. But I got it off. All is good in life. Zen. Half way through this ride, the display started going on and off. Stopped, got off the bike and diagnosed it as a loose connection on the horn. Fixed it, but had me concerned might take all this street crap off. Ride 2 - took her out to my local trails, Hopkinton Everett trail system in NH. Cool place managed by the Army Corp of Engineers, they practice flood control etc etc. Trails are maintained by several Dirtbike clubs. Some old dudes on track packers show up and make 12 inch deep double ruts when it rains, this is there version of "Train Maintenance"..........JK! They build bridges all the time, and bring plenty of beers. Cool dudes. Filled the tank up with some freshy fresh 93.....unmixed.......weird. Let the bike warm up, and went and banged out some loops on the double track. Holy crap, this motor is great, first gear is......for walking pace only. After that I took off from a stand still in 2nd for the rest of the day. This motor is just a different beast compared to the YZ. I love the YZ, I love the SSS suspension.....but damn girl, this Italian lady likes the pipe! For a supposedly mellow bike, that's designed to chug this thing can't wait for a fist full of throttle. Spent the rest of the day in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th....with 5th and 6th on the connectors. Did 1 loop of the double track, turns amazing, tracks amazing, but kinda rough on the trail trash and chop. Great pop off of the whoops, which was nice when I wanted to double/triple them. Came back to the staging area and went softer on the front compression and rebound by 4 clicks. Took it back out, more confidence on the bike so I was riding at a nice clip. Noticed a little difference, but didn't want to take away any of the quality handling characteristics. As far as trail trash, roots were still quite unpleasant, will have to dial this in. Have Stillwell on speed dial, They did Max and Cody's endurocross bikes......so they probably are dialed. If anyone has any recommendations for a tuner for Sachs let me know. Got a nice claw hand by the end of the 3rd loop. Probably because I'm not use to the bike ergos, or 300 nut. Slid back on the seat frequently, need more butt grip. Felt like a scrub with the arm pump but I was giggling all day. Tires are great, until you lean into a sandy berm, then they just kinda step out. Side lugs are weak sauce. Probably throwing the new tires on this weekend, but want to try these are the gnarly single gnar. Rock gardens and all. Finished riding and no spooge on the pipe, just a crisp small grey ring no lean surge and no rich fatness. Jetting was perfect, didn't even crack the carb open or touch the air screw. TLDR - Bike is great. Awesome power. Handles great. Tires are not for me. Suspension rough on small chop/roots. Bars cluttered. No kicker makes me nervous. Suspension/Handling - 7 right now, shock was probably an 8. FYI I have never ridden a 10 but my KYB SSS was a 8.5. Handles as good, if not better than my YZ. Very confidence inspiring, it does what you want when you want. Motor/Power - 9.....10? Lean to start made me nervous, but cleaned up on second day. I didn't want to mess with jetting because I wanted to feel it out stock. For what I WANT the bike to do I couldn't ask more. The map switch didn't feel very different? Maybe I need to turn it off and back on in order for it to take effect. Both modes felt the same. Ergos/Controls - 7-8 I don't like the rear brake. It feels very close to the motor, and I found it harder to hit. Getting into neutral was also a pain, but that is probably a GOOD thing because the YZ250X would go into neutral if a bee sat on it. Probably just me getting use to it. The seat is very narrow, and very hard. Don't sit down. I liked the bend of the bars, I liked the pegs, tank feels WIDER than the YZ but NARROWER than my friends 2017 300XC. Just right. Either my pant was bunching, or the plastics above the pegs was digging into my knee area when squeezing. Need to figure this out. HOLY CRAP I love hydraulic everything, but holy crap the bars are cluttered. Couldn't fit my EE bark busters, because all the stuff. I plated the bike so I can ride connectors/fire roads up north and turkey runs, but I will probably switch to a race loom IF I can keep the speedo/hour meter. E start, kill switch, map and SCREW the rest of the crap. Loved the kill switch. It turns it off and LOCKS it off, so you don't accidentally start it. E start and kill right next to each other is great too. Looks - 15,000 - I might trade my GF in for a 4 stroke version, so i can start "Three's Company - Italian edition" ME - 32 - 190 - C class? I don't race, but I chase my A/B rider buddies all day long. They are fast........lol. I want to race next year when schedule allows, So I will rank myself then lol. Don't ride any moto tracks, usually double or single track trails. Gnarly rock gardens, cragy hill climbs, flowing woods tracks with small lips and doubles and such. This is just my opinion as a bottom feeder. So take it for what it is, opinion. Spelling/grammar/errors - Dont hate mate
  18. So I've noticed something curious and wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. '18 300rr. I mangled my speedo signal wire and front brake hose in a stack a while back. I've been riding for months since then. replaced the brake hose but left the speedo inop. cause I can't see it behind my flexx bars anyway. before my last ride I checked the hour meter 40 hours. rode for about 4 hours. with breaks I had to have put at least 3.25 hours on it. Meter still reads 40 hours. Now that I'm thinking about it I feel like I checked the hour meter in the fall and it was at about 40 hours back then around the time I broke the speedo signal wire. Anyone else experienced the hour meter not properly counting the hours without a functional speedo? Todd
  19. Only 7 hours on the bike and the transmission is locked. Also the bike wont go into neutral no matter how many times you try. Has anybody else heard of this. I was convinced that everyone seemed to be really happy with their beta and I can't believe this already happened. Video on YouTube
