Visited my Dad in Golden Lake, had a dual sport type ride all the way to North of Barry's Bay to this Outlook.

Before we got to Barry's Bay though, we had to cross all this water on the trail, it goes all the way back around the bend.

I don't normally do water crossings, I hate the soggy boot feeling, but really had no choice here.

It's kind of scary crossing that much water when you've never even been on that trail before, had no idea how deep it would get.

The XTrainer handled this trip flawlessly, from my Dad's place to the Lookout in Barry's Bay is about 50km, plus all the side trails we checked out.

My buddy's EC300 uses quite a bit less fuel than the XTrainer, and it has a larger tank, he probably could have done the entire trip without getting fuel, and I'd probably need to use a full tank and a half or more.

Ok, I will say the Mylers radiator is working excellent with the silicone hoses and the lower temp radiator sensor switch which seems to turn the fan on @ 180 degrees, last weekend the temperatures were crazy hot @ 100 +/-degrees on singletrack the Beta ran @ 180-210, Vs. with the old system @ 220-240 degrees. Though now I'll put more load on the battery with the fan starting @ 180, time will tell.......

I'm not familiar with the 4t Betas just the 2ts. Did the silicone hoses eliminate the thermostat? What brand/ where did you get them?

Are you running the stock headlight? If so, it draws 50-65watts. The fan draws 35w.

I installed a headlight switch on my RS450 when I installed the fan. Switched out the stock bulb for a cheap $20 H4 LED from Amazon, which draws 32w. It's held up for two years now.
Also upgraded the stator to 100w, should have gone up to 150w.

Fan runs constantly in the single track but the bike always starts.

Nice idea! My stock headlight is redundant for me as I rarely ride at night, turning it off for most of the time would help my battery live a happier life. I'll look into the switch for the headlight ASAP. And an LED light would help also. I've been lazy working on other aspects of keeping it cool, but not addressing a couple of good ones. 

I gotta a feeling that the fan is going to run a lot moving forward. 

Idling in the garage it slowly rises to 179/180 degrees then the fan kicks in and stops any increase in temps and holds @ plus/minus 2 degrees, gotta love that 180 degree sensor!

There's lots of different companies that make thermostat delete silicone hose kits for out Beta's, people say Samco is a great alternative, I'm running a decent set of Chinese ones....

      Hi guys ,
      Mounting and dismounting the rear wheel I`ve broken the safety piece in the rear brake .
      I cannot see the piece in the Beta parts Diagram.
      It`s ok to ride without this piece ?
      Thanks

      Hey Everyone, 
      I just wanted to give everyone an update on how the Alta Redshift MX did at the RMEC Hard Rock Enduro in Colorado. Don was able to get a 2nd place finish (would have been first if not for a flat rear tire) in the A 50 + class and 17th overall. The bike was absolutely amazing on the technical rocky terrain. 
      Race Info:
      6 laps that averaged 23 minutes per lap a little over 2 hours of actual racing time Don was able to sneak in about 35-40 minutes of charging total using a 220v generator. Raced the entire race in Map 1 on the Alta The Alta does require a little more strategy for Longer format Enduro racing, but it is very competitive against gas bikes! 
      Here is the link to the YouTube video of the race from Don's helmet cam.
