  1. PlusOnePerformance and afterhourscycle.com are hosting a Michigan trail ride May 6 at the Ambrose Lake trail in mid-Michigan. All Beta riders are welcome, and if you have to bring your KTM-riding buddies along, so be it All you need are the Michigan ORV/trail tags and a spark arrestor - handguards are recommended but not required. The trail has a decent mix of loam and sand, with a very few rocks and some roots. My bikes will have Michelin Starcross 5 softs mounted ... you can pick your own treads, but that's a good start. There are north and south loops from the trail head, and if we have distinctly different talent pools we'll split and head in opposite directions, then meet back at the trailhead for lunch and head out again. I'll edit this post with further details.
  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. I had been considering for quite a while this preload adjuster, but the price put me off. I saw it listed on Amazon, so threw it on my wish list at $154, free shipping + tax. I received a notice a couple weeks later that price dropped to $146 + tax, so I pulled the trigger and ordered it. I did a little research on best way to pull the shock. I removed muffler, unbolted top of shock, disconnect bottom linkage from frame/shock/swingarm but really only needed to remove at frame and shock, and pulled shock out at area right side of bike near airbox boot. It was tricky but got it in & out through there. Had to use ratchet strap to compress spring to get locking ring back on bottom of shock with Xtrig installed. It really works slick and I’m happy with it! I measured the spring compressed with shock removed & used this as starting point when going back together once Xtrig was installed. For 16 500 RS, I ordered XTRIG 500010800101 Shock Pre-Load Adjuster. Amazon wish list is pretty handy!
  4. 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
  5. Pol Tarres came in 6th in Minas.. I noticed a Beta in there in the gold class in some of the vids . I figured it was him. He's an amazing rider that has transferred over from the trials world to extreme enduro on Beta. He's won some big extreme enduro races already.. Alem I think.. forget now.. but it's fun to see another top rider in the world in with the likes of Cody Webb and Graham Jarvis and so many of the other greats. https://www.facebook.com/tarrespol/
  6. Hi , I`ve got a 300rr/2017 Beta and it seems that a lot of pressure builds in the cooling system . I have a radiator fan but when riding technical slow stuff the cooling system runs very very hot(or pressure in the system ) and coolant is thrown out .Same track with kato or husky does not run this hot . I`ve read that changing the head gasket(with Ktm gasket) will fix the problem and the high pressure problem will be gone.It is hard to change it ? PS: Does anybody has this https://slavensracing.com/shop/coolant-recovery-tank-by-motion-pro/ mounted ?It will recover the coolant ?
  7. I currently own and ride a 13 300xc. I love the this bike, even if it's not the best bike for the majority of the riding I do. I ride a lot of very tight, very technical, rocky, rooty, trials type stuff as I live very close to probably hundreds of kilometers for trials trails. With that said, I also race some hare scramble and enduro races and am looking to do more this year. On my ktm, when I'm in first because the terrain warrants it, the clutch is almost never fully out. I run a fan because I slip the clutch so much and it causes a lot of heat, so the fan runs almost constantly and yes, I change the oil almost every ride as a result. I also put a bigger sprocket on the back. I have the chance to get a pretty good deal on a new old stock 17 300rr race, but I've never ridden one and have almost no chance that I will be able to without buying this one. With said, I've read as much as I can about them and they seem like a great bike for what I want to do, but I'm worried about the difference in motor and grearing. My KTM with the xc gearing and the 300 red spring, fmf fatty etc.. is a handful for my skill level, but I love riding it. Will I love the Beta? Would I love an xc-w? Anyone with experience, I would really appretiate you input!

    Steering stabilizer

    Anyone using a Scott steering stabilizer or similar product ? I would like to hear your opinion on them. Where are good places to purchase them ?
  10. Hoping some Canadian Beta owners can help me out. I just bought a used 2014 Beta 250RR from one of the bigger, established, mutli-brand dealerships in Edmonton. Drove three hours each way to get it. Bike's in beautiful condition - looks almost new for $3k less. I get home, unload the bike, take it for a quick and somewhat precarious ride up and down my alley through the snow and ice, then introduce it to its new home and close the garage door. Once in the house, first thing I do after saying hello to my dog is call my insurance company. Liability insurance for the bike is a requirement here when riding on public land, and for just under $300 a year, it also provides theft and fire coverage. The insurance company tells me the vin doesn't exist in Canada, and that they can't insure it. So I call up the dealership, and one of their people says its likely that the bike has never been registered in Canada before, that there's a process of doing so, and if I call them back during the work week, they can give me a hand with that. To me, this is absolutely bizarre. Hoping its not a lot of extra work, and it better not cost me a single extra penny. The lack of liability coverage is not a big deal right now - riding season is at least two months away still. But I now have a somewhat costly piece of machinery sitting in my garage that, unlike the nearly as costly downhill mountain bikes its sitting amongst, isn't covered by my home insurance policy. I'm thinking the Beta may spend a few nights in my living room until this gets sorted. Anyone else experience this, on either a new or used Beta?

    To Beta or not to Beta

    Hey all, My name is Jay and i'm new to the forum community but not new to the sport. However I have reached my limit with my expertise and am hoping some of you may be of some help. Without further ado... I've stuck to a track most my life, I.E. Motocross, arena cross and outdoor national style tracks. I've made the difficult decision to leave to tracks to the young guns and ride more single track and trail riding up in the mountains. So i started by selling me Factory SLM racing 2012 Yz450F, yes i cried when he drove off with her. But i looked to greener pastures with hopes to have a KTM 500exc, Beta 500rr-s or a Husqvarna FE501. However, almost a year later and I still don't have a shiny new dirt magnet in my shop. I'm in the final deliberations and have narrowed it between KTM and BETA, with me leaning towards the BETA. This is where you come in. I would like to know the following. Is the Beta service intervals as daunting as the KTM's? Is the cost of parts between the two noticeable? And are the just as readily available? Those that have a 2017 of either bike, How are they holding up? Can I expect this bike to hold up like a 1985 XR250 (An almost impossible feat)? What are any major concerns about either bike? and finally what made you choose one or the other? Thank you for your efforts and advice. I appreciate it.
  12. Hi, Here is a piston after 80h with a "working" oil pump.Piston and cylinder damage ... No warning lights or something in dashboard, diodes were verified and encapsulated in silicon .. Waranty for this from Beta?...it`s a joke UPDATE: Talked again at Beta dealership and maybe we can agree on some terms .
  13. My wife has had a year of riding now on her KLX140L and has become a good rider. The only problem is she's watched too many Graham Jarvis videos and wants a Gas Gas contact or a Beta Evo Sport. She's leaning heavy towards the Gas Gas with electric start. She's 5'3 so full size enduro bikes are out. Been there and done that, it didn't work. We ride single track and mostly slower technical stuff. She isn't a fast rider already so going slower would be hard to imagine. Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated!

    What beta to buy

    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

    Fork Oil

    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.
  18. AMA member Charles Attig wins Beta motorcycle in 2016 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series Other series participants win riding gear, accessories PICKERINGTON, OH – February 14, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Charles Attig, of Newark, Del., is the winner of a Beta dual sport motorcycle, awarded to one participant in the 2016 Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series sweepstakes. “I just spoke with Mr. Attig yesterday, and he sounds super excited to have won a new Beta!” said Beta USA Marketing Manager Tim Pilg. “His current ride is a 2008, so this should be a great upgrade in his iron horse stable. All of us at Beta USA are equally pleased, not only for the winner but also to be a part of this growing series. It is good to see the series grow as dual sport riding is becoming a great riding alternative to racing, not to mention a great way to meet new people. Beta looks ahead to many years in their continued partnership with the AMA and hopes to offer riders demo rides at many of the dual sport [events] very soon.” In the sweepstakes, individuals received one automatic entry for each 2016 AMA Beta National Dual Sport Series event they participated in. “This is completely unexpected,” said Attig, 43, an AMA member since 2015. “I had no idea I was even entered. I’m ecstatic to win a motorcycle, that’s for sure! I love the AMA and everything it does for motorcycle riders.” In 2016, Attig rode the Hammer Run event, a round in the Beta AMA National Dual Sport Series organized by the Tri-County Sportsmen Motorcycle Club. He is a member of the Delaware Enduro Riders and has been riding off-road since he was 15. “There’s always a big group of us that go to the event every year,” Attig said. Attig can choose a 2017 Beta 430 RS or a 500 RS. Bikes in the Beta RS line feature a liquid cooled fuel-injected, four-valve single-cylinder, four-stroke engine with an electric start, back-up kick starter and cooling fan kit. For more information about Beta, visit www.betausa.com. Other prizes awarded to series participants include a set of Moose Racing gear (Expedition pants, Expedition jacket and XC1 gloves), a custom seat from Seat Concepts, a Sena 10C communications system, and two pairs of Sidi Crossfire boots. Michael Dore of Wappinger Falls, N.Y., won the Seat Concepts prize. Alex Angle of Oshkosh, Wis., and Jordan Ruff of Logan, Ohio, each won a pair of Sidi boots. The Sena 10C system went to Jared McKeon of Rocklin, Calif. The Moose Racing gear was awarded to Randy Marble of St. Paul, Texas. The 2017 AMA National Dual Sport Series, sponsored by Beta for the third consecutive year, boasts 20 two-day events. Supporting sponsors of the series include ADVMoto, Seat Concepts, Sena and Sidi.

AMA-chartered clubs and promoters organize thousands of miles of trail and connecting roads for AMA members to enjoy on their dual-sport machines every year. The noncompetitive events often include meals, a t-shirt, after-ride activities, camping, camaraderie and more.
  19. Hi people, I know very little on how to do what I want to do regards to putting together a 2nd hand ec 300 I'm making videos to entertain others and myself during the build Any help would be great in the weeks to come Here is the link to my 1st episode of the Gas Gas Ec 300 Build Series Enjoy https://youtu.be/aMTOXVhyikI
  20. I just picked up a 2012 Beta 400 RR Enduro and I know they have a fairly short range. I tend to ride to the trail so I'd like to have the peace of mind that I'll make it back. I've looked around for larger tanks from makers such as Acerbi and IMS but can only find aux tanks for the bar and rear. Is there another tank out there that works on the newer Beta 400s?
  21. Hey guys, I was hoping some of you could help me out. Recently my bike (2010 KTM 250 XC) started overheating a lot. As soon as it got up to temperature it would start peeing coolant out of the overflow tube. I changed out the stock 1.8 radiator cap for a CV4 2.0 radiator cap. Still continued to pee it out. I went through and checked the head and cylinder to see if they were warped. They are not and I also changed the base gaskets and head gaskets. Still continued to pee out. I bought and swapped out new over-sized radiators, new silicone hoses, and a new billet aluminum water pump impeller. Flushed the system and filled it with Engine Ice antifreeze at about 1/4" above the fins. It still continues to pee out. I've heard different things about how the reeds could be causing it and also my jetting could. My jetting is set up perfectly for my weather and where I ride, and my reeds looked fine on inspection. The only thing I have not checked is my clutch pack. It has some chatter and when the bike is cold it shifts pretty hardly into first gear on the first initial take off. In fact it shifts so hard it lurches forward and wants to die and I have to give it a little throttle or it will. (Also, if the bike is in gear on the trail and I pull in the clutch and try to hit the e-start the clutch doesn't engage until I give it a little throttle). I run what the manual recommends for oil (Motorex 15w-50) and at the right amount. I also changed it about 2 hours ago. Since that is the only part of this bike I haven't really looked at I was just wondering since all of that other stuff didn't seem to work, could my clutch be causing the overheating issue?
  22. Hello guys, I’m Marco from Italy, it’s a long time that I’m reading various posts here in the forum, they are very helpful, so I’ve decide to ask you for some suggestions. . I'm writing brcause ask for advice for the Showa 47 ex CRF450R that I took to mount them on a Beta Xtrainer (which as you it comes with poor suspensions). The Beta as long as you go slowly behaves very well, then as soon as you get up the pace becomes not very stable, so I found these Showa close to home very well placed at an honest price and I decided to buy them. What has been done up to now, as well as a complete overhaul, has been to shorten the stroke from 315 mm to 280 mm to respect the original geometry and replace the springs with 0.42 kg / mm. Now, I imagine that the hydraulics, is quite sustained so before installing them I wanted to put my hands on the shim stack but without spending a lot of money since I use the bike only on the weekend and I do not have to race, the initial idea was to copy the pyramid crf250x but I thought that maybe intervening on the shims present you can do something without upsetting the configuration too much (like removing or moving shims). This is my basic configuration, http://i63.tinypic.com/9qgw48.jpg, if you have any advice on how to move it would be welcome, even combining preload spring and oil to be inserted into the forks. What I was looking for is to get a slightly softer fork in the first part of the stroke and reading around I seem to have understood that already intervening on the bypass something is obtained. To finish weight about 72 kg without enduro garments, so around 80 kg dressed in overalls protectors and boots. Thanks a lot in advance and happy holidays to everyone.
  23. Hi, I'm looking for a SUB mount for my 2017 Beta 300 RR, but unfortunately Scott's are only making the bulky rubber mount. Has anyone seen a solution for this? A simple metal mount? Something like this (This is for Husaberg) http://www.scottsonline.com/Stabilizer_Purchase2.php?Make=Husaberg&Model=FE&Bike_ID=6341&Year=2013&Size=250&Fred=&BI_ID=239092 Thanks you all
