Added reply in a thread REAL Factory Edition ~ Beta 2/12/2021 3:55 PM

The parts list looks like it largely consists of more bling. What am i missing? A couple minor things but nothing that makes me want this over a standard race edition. - Black Renthal Twin Wall 999 handlebar (with bar pad) - Factory brake and clutch ... more »

If it ever opens back up! Seems like any rain and it's shut down for weeks. Haven't been out there since summer due to a injured foot. A friend told me someone a month or so back found a hidden wire across the trail from a suspected hunter which doesn't ... more »

Nice! What made you go XCW over XC? Out of curiosity, was it MSRP + fees? Eyeballing a 21 Beta 300 Race edition if i can convince the wife to move up to my Xtrainer. Seems they're all MSRP + delivery. No one wanting to move so far.

I highly doubt he paid anywhere near $83k. We've always been successful getting 10k+ off our F150's & F250s over the last decade.

For AOMC, if you have the part # you can usually find a lot more on their website. Atleast that is how it is for Beta parts thru them. Saying that, screw AOMC. They've been nothing but unpleasant over the last year to deal with where i refuse to use ... more »

Added reply in a thread Never getting injured 12/12/2020 5:03 AM

I feel pretty fortunate with injuries (knock on wood) When i was 16 or 17, i clipped a tree, and the bars went into my liver. No puncture thankfully, but significant bruising and scabbing for the upcoming couple weeks. Left a scar and was bed ridden ... more »

Added reply in a thread How about a new two-stroke? Beta 300 RX 12/5/2020 6:01 PM

This is correct. My dealers RX is not spoken for (Magnolia, Tx). He said he should have it in the next 1-2 weeks.

Added reply in a thread How about a new two-stroke? Beta 300 RX 12/5/2020 5:52 AM

From what my dealer told me yesterday, all RX's are sold out from the warehouse. What is available at the dealers is it for this year.

Yesterday i saw a guy at the trail head on a YZ250 kicking and kicking for probably 15 minutes before his bike finally started. Mine had life within a split second of me pressing the button. Not saying one is better than the other, but they both have ... more »

Added reply in a thread I messed up and need advice!! 11/20/2020 10:40 AM

Went with a leftover WR450F when i got back into riding in early 2017. Kept it less than a season. Too much power and wore me out way to fast. Sold it for a huge loss, but was able to get a current model year 250F for about the same price i sold my 450 ... more »

Heres my logic for all styles of riding on my dirt bike: Is it flat? No, run it. Yes, air it up to something around mid teens In trials, Is it flat? No, run it. Yes, air it up to 4-6ish.

I stopped by earlier today on the way home from riding. By far better than any other cycle gear i've been into and most dealerships. Great selection on Alpinestar boots in the store for MX, didn't see Enduro models but they had about every model MX boot,

^This. I'm on a Xtrainer. Absolutely love the bike, low seat height, power, weight, etc. The "weak" link is the suspension, but honestly at my weight (~150lbs) it works better out of the box than any other of the 8 or 9 bikes i've owned. Power is very ... more »

My father will typically go for the out of state buys to avoid taxes where it's from the next state over, or he has me find him a deal semi-local to me. Multiple 4 wheelers, UTVs and bikes, zero issue paying cash and getting the MSO. CRF50 he bought

I had the 690 for about 1.5 years and 6k miles all on the street set up as a supermoto. Absolutely excellent bike for what it is. Keeps the dirt bike feel i was after but has way more manageable maintenance intervals. My only "complaint" is the 690 doesn't ... more »
