Neat!

Bruce have you picked this up yet? Id love to see one in person.

I hear there is a relatively cheap 180cc kit for that engine.

First of all it is red, really red. Redder than a Honda :deal: Second- the (lack of ) power is underwhelming :lol2:
I pulled the exhaust insert, popped a couple holes in the airbox- that's always good :thumbup:
I fiddled around with some things, and have few back road miles logged. I figured out how to adjust front brake, rear brake also, but the rear is still touchy. Preload adjusted- no other suspension adjustments. Re torqued axle bolts and triples, stem bolt good. Front is still "wiggly" above 50 on paved roads. New knobby on a dirt bike syndrome? Maybe balance the front wheel. I have yet to ride any gravel, hopefully this weekend, although it looks like rain for a few days. Steering seems quick, but limited? IDK gotta ride it some more.
Jared put in a foam filter- stock is paper :shrug: But it really bogged. Interwebs says jetting change needed with foam filter. I have a second set of jets, but for now I switched filter.
All in all, not bad, works fine on the 35-45 mph roads that I travel.
This should fill the gap for running gravel forest roads. And it's easy to load on the hitch hauler.
Time will tell. I need ti side by side with other Betas to see where they saved $$
I tell you the bottom end looks bigger than a 125. Big bore kit going in after the warranty.
