  1. New to the forum post up something... Everyone can use their voice here, owners, non-owners, wannabes and freaks... ..........................................
  2. Installed a new skid plate, new brakes front & rear, and just ordered new fork springs from RaceTech. Getting ready for the annual Desert 100 at the end of March
  3. I searched and couldn't find a similar thread. Modding season is upon us.I cleaned and oiled my air filter, changed my 13 tooth cs to a 14, cleaned and lubed the chain, changed the oil and filter, and installed my Battery Tender. It was a good day. Tomorrow, I ride.
  4. Ok, guy's here's the thread that I was talking about. Let's put our settings and MOD's so we can keep track of what's working and what's not. I found out today that our bikes have a GPS (Gear Position Sensor) built into the ECU so just uploading maps may not work. Also, what's your TPS setting and is it working? Also, what MOD's have you done? Mine, so far. TPS: .64 MOD's: FMF 4.1 Factory slip on Removed all SMOG Crap (You must leave the Secondary Air valve connected-electrically) or you will get a fault code. All hoses can be removed and plugged. The carbon canister is built within the front downtube on the frame-No need to remove it, just the hoses.
  5. Ok, so up until a week ago I scoured the internet daily trying to find out about the new 150 XC-W. And not from guys who ride 450's or guys who just want to grumble because the beloved 200 is dropped for the time being. The age old question had to answered: soldier on with yesterday's model or go for the latest and greatest? I wanted to hear from guys who already ride and love 150's like myself. Didn’t really find a lot of good posts. My ’17 is 1 week old, so I figured it’s time to start a thread to help others make the $8k decision. I only have 1 hour of easy (break-in) riding on the bike, so I’ll only give first impressions at this point. Wife permitting, the details will come soon! First, what’s new on the ‘17? The answer is virtually everything. You can use your old wheels and bars, but beyond that I doubt you will find anything that transfers. Maybe the pegs, but the new pegs feel great, so I’m leaving my Fastway pegs on the ’13 for now. Couple of things to note. Make darn sure the bike is jetted properly for your location. Based on the charts, the new Mikuni carb appears to be less sensitive to altitude and temperature changes, but my bike was delivered with the “wrong” needle installed. You should have 3 needles to choose from, and mine needed the leaner needle with the clip dropped one position. And beware, the numbering system for the Mikuni needles is backwards from the Keihins! Also, the bike comes with a 110 rear tire. This is not the ideal size for the 150. My advice is to wear it out and put a 100 on the bike. Personally I prefer the feel of the 100, but the real reason is that the 150 internals weren’t designed to handle the weight of a 110. Not gonna sling any mud here (pun intended), but if you were KTM and you didn’t have any other bike in the line-up that calls for a 100, what would you do? Now for the ride impression. In a word, awesome!! Very well balanced and buttery smooth feel in the pegs and bar. Ridden KTM for 18 years, and this is truly a significant step forward. The bike is lighter than my ’13 XC despite the electric start, but honestly I can’t feel a difference. The ergos however are hugely different. At 5’10” 180 pounds the ’17 just fits me better. I would purchase the bike again for this reason alone. It’s very noticeable when standing, and I stand 75% of the time. I immediately feel far more comfortable on the ’17. My ’13 350 isn’t bad, but the ’17 feels better than any other KTM I’ve owned. I’ve not set the sag of course, but at the moment the rear is way too high and stiff, so I really can’t comment on handling yet. This bike is taller, so if this might be a problem for you I’d find one that is broken in and set up for a similar weight and check it out. The new suspension feels great just play riding, but I really can’t comment until I can open it up on real trails. However, most every suspension guru on the planet seems to be saying the same thing: the new suspension is darn good at doing what it was designed to do, and many people will be happy with it in stock form. But if you want to race hare scrambles (think fast GNCC type racing) you will likely want to modify the suspension. As with all previous PDS models, the bike is apparently a little unbalanced front to rear, and this begins to show as speeds increase. For the ’17 it was described to me as “the fork isn’t actually ‘bad’, but the shock starts to overpower the fork as speeds increase across rough terrain”. I’ve had this same issue fixed on every PDS bike I’ve owned, so no surprise, just a little disappointing. Also, and this is a true design flaw in my opinion, it seems the range of adjustability on the fork compression is almost non-existent. There are tuners out there who already have a fix, but again a little disappointing for folks who don’t want to modify their suspension. My 150 is a stock ’13 XC with an SX silencer. That said, and keeping in mind I can’t really open the new bike up yet, the ’17 clearly has significantly more power across the board, with great usable torque on the bottom and a smoother transition into the meat of the power. (Keep in mind that I mean great usable torque for a 150! Doesn’t really compare to my 350 of course.) I find it much easier to play on this bike, as I don’t have to clutch and rev nearly as much. We’ll see how well this transfers to slippery East Tennessee mountain trails in a few weeks, so check back. I currently have the stock power valve spring installed and stock exhaust. I will try the yellow (more aggressive) spring after break-in. My initial impression is that with proper jetting there is more than enough grunt to satisfy 150 fans. Top end seems like it's gonna be good, but hard to say anything meaningful at this point. Can’t wait to see how it runs after break-in, and with the yellow spring and a full FMF exhaust! One step at a time :-)
  6. FE501, FE350 or 300XC-W.... Type of riding ...everything but moto.
  7. Okay guys and gals. Here we go with a thread for those riding toward senility---or maybe already there! I have some concerns about "slowing down", but will get into that later. Not in the mood for it tonight. Cj mentioned in the other thread about the bikes with much bigger engines than needed. I don't understand that either. Maybe it has to do with man's fascination with power. LOL--and if you put stickers all over your bike, it makes it even MORE powerful. Then put loud pipes on it and it becomes a REAL monster. Stupid thinking isn't it. Wait a minute--I just had a flashback. Okay, Let's change the subject. Who's next?
  8. Wanted to create a place where we can gather our info about our beloved 200's. Myself am new to the club and have been drawing information from those of you experienced 200 owners. My goal is to have this information in one place, where we can post jetting, susp, tips and tricks, and other pertinent info related to this bike. I know some of it will cross over, but the 200 is a little different from it's bigger brothers. Provide your personal information concerning setup, links to other threads or webpages, changes made and results, etc.If this goes well, would like to see it get stickied.
  9. Here's mine in dirt clothes And in SuMo
  10. ...thought this might be fun as i see a lot of older guys riding Huskys on TT. I'll start... 41 years old - 93 TC610/99 WR250/02 WR250/04 TE450/04 CR125/06 TC250 (on the way)
  11. I have already been posting a lot of Beta vids in one place in this one Youtube Beta Playlist but I know you all have more to add. You're welcome to watch and/or add vids for all of us to enjoy... Here's my last addition to the list.. ..and the Beta list.. Got more?
  12. I have a 2000 YZ250 that I plan on racing in my first ever harescramble on March 12. The bike is completely stock, although I am ordering some g2 ergonomics hand guards. It also has works connection from guards. What would you guys recomend for pre race prep (things to check) and any other advice you can give me, thanks.
  13. This is sort of husky cafe ..ish. Just post where you see Beta bikes for sale. I'll start with some Boano racing bikes on their site just to get it going. http://www.beta.boano.com/index.asp?cat=2
  14. I don't have photo access yet but lets see your 200's.
  15. This is the saga of my poorly maintained 2003 YZ250 that I bought about a year ago. I added a few mods last summer to help me get by then deployed to Africa for 6 months. The poor bike was riddled with SAE hardware, spray foam where there should have been gaskets, and ziptied rear fender, a horribly cut seat, and plenty of other unspeakable things. However, it came with a title and the engine did run pretty strong at the time...even though it had a hint of engine noise. Over time, the noise progressed and I knew what had to be done. While I was away, I coerced my wife into sending a used crankshaft i bought out to Mr. Crankshaft so I'd have a spare for a quick swap... This is it after I replaced the fuel tank that had a split in it and put a lectron carb on. It still wasn't that smooth and the wheel/tire combination were unforgiving, plus, the suspension and rebound were set for a wanna-be-freestyle MX rider. This is the transition to where it was before I really dove in GT216AA Front with Nitro Mousse 18" Rear with Shinko 505 Cheater rear and Nitro Mousse Low Enduro bend Flexx bars (eventually putting steering dampener on) SSS Forks and suspension done by W.E.R. DEP Armored Enduro Pipe Steahly 9oz Flywheel Weight Devol Skidplate IMS/Zipty tank Non-cracked white rear fender Tall seat...I forget who made it, but it does what it do and fits well. Head cut by 218 (head was cut after this photo was taken) rock kickstand During this ride, I had next to no bottom end due to a stuck powervalve. This was my first ride since I came home. I never really tore into the engine, so I got in there, cleaned it up and replaced a broken powervalve pulley and a few areas where parts were missing from the previous owner(s). Two weeks after this picture, I took it out to the mountains for the fourth of july and it started to get real nasty sounding and not in a good way This is why: While I was in there, I figured I'd send the top end out to Eric Gorr...and since that has a 2.5 week lead time, I might as well get the frame in order. Now my bike looks like this. The frame was spray bombed over who knows what, which was over the the original finish. That is being re-mediated. To be continued...
  16. Let's see your CRF250L, sitting purdy or in action.

  18. Start posting and please mr. Moderator pin it !!!! My 2012 498RR
  19. This idea came about after I visited the adventure riders website. After seeing all the nice pictures that were taken from trails, I decided to start a thread focusing on the nicest areas you can take a picture of your Drz. I think I was just so bored today too. Here I'll set it off...
  20. For me it was a productive day. I did my first oil change, turned up the preload and did a "custom" fender eliminator/reducer by modifying the stock one. So what did you do to yours today?
  21. With a tip of the hat to a similar thread on the ADV forum, what did you do to yer beloved Beta today ? I spooned on a fresh MT43 (yum !) and attempted to bump up to a 50 tooth in the rear. I was disappointed to discover the chain was not long enough to accommodate the 50 tooth - and had to revert to the heavily worn stock 48 tooth sprocket. As my chain still has plenty o' life in it, I'll order me up a IronMan 48 tooth, and bump to the 50 when the chain needs replacin' .
  22. I installed a skid plate I got from TT today.
  23. Please post pics only. All other posts will be deleted so it doesn't get out of hand. PM the poster for more info or create a post if there are comments or questions about someones bike.
