Waited for my new graphics to arrive. Been forever. :confused: Also dropped the rear wheel off to get a new tube and Maxxis IT tire put on it. Will have it out this weekend.

Reminds me, gotta put a magnet on for the TrailTech cpu.

Nothing at all! I wonder if it is still in the garage? It threatened to ride away and find someone to pay more attention to it!

i polished out my clutch cover and oil filter cover... waiting for my suspension to get done at the shop so i can put it on tonight.

Quick question, how did you go about polishing it, did you take off the clutch cover sand it off, then polish it? I want to do it to mine, but don't fully know how and yours looks nice.

yeah you just need to sand it down with a palm/orbital sander to get the coating off with some 220 or so grit then go all the way down to 1000/1500 to get it as smooth as possible. i used an angle grinder with a buffing wheel and some jewelers rouge till it shined.

all i did was the flat outside surface and the beveled edge around it. i did take it off though so i could get to the under side of it.

Kind of a shocker the first time you do it- you'll get faster. I bought a special spark plug tool for 4-strokes- didnt work worth a darn. Best thing I have found is a pivoting, T handle, automotive spark plug wrench to break it loose, then drop a 3" long piece of thick, black 1/4" fuel line tubing down the opening and press it down and it will grab the plug for rotating it out and really helps for installing new one. The tubing gives you good feel so you dont strip the plug. Blow out the opening with compressed air to get any crud out before you start. Once you see what a crud trap that deep recess is, you take a little more care in cleaning to make sure you dont get any water down there.

Today I went up to el Mirage and rode the piss out of my bike. :D Also showed by buddy whats up with my WR vs his YZ450. Both 07's. He found out painfully that it isn't the bike that makes the rider fast, but the rider. :crazy: Haha. I freakin love this bike

      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

      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

      I have a 1987 yamaha tt 225 that needs a new carburetor.  I've looked EVERYWHERE online and can't find an original.  Does anyone know a good replacement one I can put on it? 
    • By Code54

      Very hard to tell this one from new.  (Other than a little bit of dirt and a few minor scratches)
      VERY low hrs and easy riding  - of course it runs great
      Has both Electric Start and kick start backup (also has Pig tails for battery tender installed)
      BBR Alum. Frame cradle with skid plate (Over $150 and protects the bike – Top of the line)
      Fisher Fab House Chain guide (Factory one is known to be an issue so I replaced it with a top of the line guide – runs about $50)
      Have title in hand
      Selling for ONLY $2000 WITH the extras!!!! (yes, the price is firm and we only accept cash - no shippers or scammers...)
       
      Only reason I am selling is I want to look into buying a trials bike and don’t really need two dirtbikes.

      Amazing bike but due to family obligations it sits in my garage most of the time. The bike has maybe 5 hours on it and runs like new. It comes with a GYTR FMF silencer with spark arrestor. There are some scratches on the plastic and and pipe from trail riding but that's what it is made for and its only cosmetic. The bike has been maintained and garage kept. If you have any questions please text me at (415)three 4 two- 4 five 8 six.

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.
