Reply to How do the Betas and TM brands compare to the big five? 8/19/2020 6:27 PM

I'm on a 2018 Beta Xtrainer and wife is on a 2019 Beta 125 RR-S. I have about 70 hours on my bike and it's been absolutely great. Has it's limitations (which i knew when i bought this model) but it's the best out of the box bike i've ever owned. Biggest ... more »

I'm trying to avoid OEM pipes or DG. Looking for ideally a nice cone style pipe like a PSI or Jemco.

Reply to 1983 YZ125 Build 8/10/2020 6:20 PM

Wrench report if i recall is to switch to 82 pipes. I've searched for aftermarket and come up empty there as well. Generally search the buzz words every couple days for 82 and 83 pipes on ebay, along browsing the few face book groups i'm apart of every

I thought i had but can't find a record of contact. Don't see it listed on their website, looks mainly later 80s and newer but just shot them a message to check. Thanks for the heads up. Edit: Just heard back, he'd need the bike to be able to build me ... more »

Any one have a non OEM or DG pipe for one of these? Been searching for about 18 months and having worse luck than usual tracking down some harder to find items. Jemco is a no go. I've tried multiple times over the last 6+ months and every time after ... more »

Probably not popular opinion but you can find other hobbies that fill the void. I quit riding in 08 for about 8 years from ages of 18 to 26. Currently 30 In that gap, i built a rock crawler and got into that as a replacement hobby. For me, it's just ... more »

I sold my 2011 5.0 (first year for the 5.0) last year with 180k miles. Zero issues from the motor from 0 miles until 180k. Electrical issue around 170k miles on the tranny that was a ~$300 repair. Overall, truck required minimal maintenance for the entire ... more »

250/300 2T or 250 4T for offroad use only. 450 if you want street manners. My 300 2T is miserable on the street, but the plate got the job done for trails that required it. I'll go poke around on it for 5-10 minutes on the street and then i'm ready to ... more »

Reply to New Boots, can't decide which ones 6/15/2020 3:34 PM

Not Tech 7's. Bought mine just over a year ago, have 1 solid season on them. Currently getting the soles replaced. Not so annoyed soles are worn out, but between me shipping them to get re-soled and getting them back, i'm at nearly $200. After this repair ... more »

Reply to Are the Fuel Injected two strokes worth it? 6/11/2020 5:16 PM

Have you ridden modern 2 strokes? My Beta 300 is very linear with out a huge hit. Rideability is the best out of any bike i've owned previous. I think the OP will find that with most newer 2 strokes aimed towards offroad. I like the simplicity of the ... more »

I'm on Tech 7s. I would say way better than previous cheaper boots i've had, but my soles are shot after less than a year of use with chunks falling off. Was sporting some nice purple duct tape my last ride out to keep them together. Too short of life ... more »

Buy a 2019 used bike with low hours. I paid just over $5k for my 2017 YZ250F in early 2018 that had 5 hours and not a single scratch or sign of wear on it. Sold it a year later with probably 35 or so hours for a ~$400 loss to a member on here. You'll ... more »

Reply to Best way to secure bike in trailer 5/29/2020 7:21 PM

What type of trailer? My father is running a 2x6 wrapped in carpet that butts up against 2 things in the trailer and then runs straps to the pre-installed hooks. No issues with the big bikes or dirt bikes this way.
