The 2011 Beta rs that I have was having a couple of small screw problems.I have almost stripped the rear axle nut and one of the front axle pinch bolt holes. The cause is that the threads on the rear axle are not covered by the nut.The cure was a simple 20mm(bolt size) washer from Bolt Depot. The front axle pinch bolts were the similar,the bolt threads hang below the the fork legs.The solution here was to switch to 25mm bolts instead of the 30mm bolts provided.You could also use washers here if you were so inclined.A small amount of thread damage in either area will strip out either your axle nut(bad if reapiring a flat on the trail) or the foot of your fork.On the fork I would much rather have to repair a small amount of thread on the bottom(if ever needed),than to have to back out a damaged bolt.Steve
