What did you do to your Beta today ?

Actually I found the opposite to be true, but I admit they are not for everybody. Ran them for years on two GGs. Very natural feeling standing and leaning forward. I'm running the stock Beta race pegs now only because the pivot pegs were due for another rebuild and I sold them with the bike. Biggest negative IMO is the maintanence due to the tiny orings that fail often. You may not like them but don't bash until you try.

 Seems people are very polarized on the idea of those pivot pegs. I have them on my GG and like them. Maybe not enough to but another set . Apart from that quality seems to be very good. One thing I did notice using them is, it appears my knees are a little bit more sore after a long ride which could be due to the extended mobility that they provide.

I'm still curious about these from zipty racing and ankle saver pegs.. I'm not planning on much airtime as far as the anklesaver pegs go but every once in a while I have crazy thoughts of charging some motocross. That's not exactly good being on blood thinners but still my old race blood get's itchy. I keep fighting off those feelings when it comes up . The offroad races and riding should help alleviate the mx bug . I know a bunch of people have gotten stress fractures from jumping not to mention achilles issues. Still in my mind these..especially the zipty pegs that look like bicycle pedals or floorboards might be good. It's all personal preference of course but when I look down at my size 13's I keep thinking not much is really holding me up. My feet go way off the pegs anyway. In tight stuff I'm not sure how it will fit through rocks etc but like all pegs they fold up when contacting obstacles.

ktm foot pegs needs just to be drilled?

 

often i see ktm foot pegs at better prices than beta ones....

 

I bought some offset system rigg ktm pegs and they bolted on . I can't say for what companies but I'm guessing they all fit..

I always believed KTM foot pegs to be fully compatible but the previous posts make me think about.

anyway, drill a hole is not a problem...

Well, I now have a Rekluse Core, F3 pegs, MT43 and EE handguards sitting here with no bike to put them on. I won't have it back until next week while they design rotor guards for it.  :cry:

One thing I do not like is really wide pegs, maybe because I'm a size 9 boot. My pivots were older, before they made them wider. The Beta pegs on the Race model are about my limit. I'd like to try pivots on the Beta if I could find an older set in great shape cheap.

I bought the AM Beta rear rotor guard/carrier with the bike. Very(too) pricy and nice, but like you I couldn't take the bike in the woods here without full armor and expect to ride it out.

Trust me your going to need this:

Seriously, considering the machining of this linkage guard, i can not understand how they can price it 300$.

I could understand if it were made of titanium, but this is normal Anticorodal...

Is the link more vulnerable than other links? I've never put a guard for my link on my cr and I've slammed that thing into everything since 01.

Progressive Handlebar Damping System. Basically elastomer dampened handlebar mounts. They allow the bars to move in three directions and help isolate them from trail junk and vibrations. Need some help for my right wrist which I broke in March

BPD is designing new rotor guards for the front and rear. Their guards are top notch. They've already designed really nice radiator guards for Betas. :thumbsup:

Its typical of a modern swing arm mounted rocker linkage. Very much like a CRF or a Husky. Not as low as a KTM. If you ride rocks or hop logs you will hit it occasionally, that is a sure thing. The Fastway/Stillwell skid exits not because the Beta is particularly bad, but for the Stillwell Endurocross team bikes along with the KTMs. If they ran Hondas you would probably have seen a Honda app first. It's a good thing having the option. I know I beat the crap out of the Scorpion skid on my '12 GG so this was a no brainer.

      PRICE DROP
      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure
      -Force accessories case saver
      -TMD skid plate (not pictured but will be on the bike)

      Extras:
      Acerbis X-factor handguards
      a few spare plastics pieces
      key switch with plug and play wiring
      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual
      10mm billet bar risers

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm. 

      Can send more pictures/info upon request

      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.
