Re: Joe's Beta thread

2 custom spacers later and I can now use my Husky wheels on the rear. Fronts are next.

Re: Joe's Beta thread

Essentially a new bike at this point. Have you spent more than what it would have cost to buy a new one off the floor yet? Well most of this stuff is mods I would have done to a new bike anyway. So while I am in the neighborhood of what a new race model would cost, it would be bone stock still. For...

Re: Joe's Beta thread

New seat. I ALMOST ordered a new one of these before the Hatfield trip, but because they are super busy this time of year I most likely wouldn't have gotten it before the trip. Which worked out because a guy over on Beta Rider posted this complete seat for what I would have spent on just the foam an...

Re: This is what you do with new bikes, right?

Clearly the whole bike is defective. You bought a lemon. I'll give you a dollar for it to save you the headaches of constantly fixing it. :lol2: :dry: Small gap to hop. Big mental thing to clear this since unlike jumping Jed's creek crossing there were consequences for boogering it up. This trail h...

Re: This is what you do with new bikes, right?

:dry: About the only consolation is the fact this rotor was at the end of its life before this and I was going to change it after this trip anyway (had a replacement on hand already) Also had a Galfer rear brake line I had bought for something at some point that was brand new in the package and fit ...

Re: This is what you do with new bikes, right?

DAMN, must be dragging them. Maybe they’re not releasing? Hatfield was fun! We should do another DAMN Buffalo Mtn ride. They seem to release fine. I didn't burn off the first set of pads unexpectedly, they were just at the end of their life/thin. Apparently these unknown brand pads were made of pen...

Hatfield, Rockhouse 188. This is Buffalo Mountain at the top of 199.

Re: This is what you do with new bikes, right?

First race on the Beta yesterday. Forks worked so much better. I messed with the valving in the shock and it is improved as well. Race didn't start off great. Was a live engine start which I hate so much. Everybody suddenly becomes a professional motocrosser and it is a shit show :lol2: I ended up g...
