  7. Yesterday
  8. Gee Gembrook is a long way from Ballarat ! There must be some good tracks a lot closer ?
  9. I'm in the Ballarat region but mostly try to get into the trees around Gembrook ECT I like to have a destination point and return when riding it's hard to get an idea for the bushland without tagging along on other rides,I'm always keen on getting out but it has to be a planned trip as i track my bike and try to keep realtime maintenance up to date. It's a hobby I want to continue to learn through out the rest of my life ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿค™๐Ÿค™

    I almost always cover more ground alone but I prefer not to. Some tracks are bit hairy and I do enjoy the company.
  11. Thats a shame Pete. More fun with others. But Sometimes I find I cover more ground when doing my recy rides solo.
  12. We started with four, By 1130 I was solo after a injured wrist, A damaged/failed rear brake and he being the chauffeur for rider #4 left me hans solo. Next Time! We had a good ride while it lasted and covered a good bit of dirt in the time... about 15km!, I continued on and checked a few thing here and there, All of which were as expected, a few trees down here and there, Its very pretty out there at the moment with all the winter wildflowers in bloom, esp when surrounded by a sea of them! I've cracked the screen on my norm phone so have bought a cheapy to get me by til its fixed, The photos don t do any justice but you get the idea,, I Heres my stats
  13. Do you know monkhouses they made alot the tracks there awesome riding at Valencia creek planning on camping trip when we're allowed.๐Ÿ˜‘
  14. I think it could be the shock absorber or something (no brand on it), as I'm 81Kg fully geared which is right in the middle of the standard spring weight. 75-85Kg I believe is the standard springs weighting.
  15. Apologies, l quoted the wrong figures in my post. Yes you are correct, the race sag the bike off the ground minus you on the bike. The static sag, or free sag is the bike off the ground minus the bike on the ground without rider (AFTER all changes made)...and according to you numbers l still think the spring is too firm.
  16. The measurements on the first page were with the heavy spring in and changes in preload, I've now put the standard rear spring and standard fork springs in. With standard springs after changing spring preload in my measurements were - On stand - 643mm On Ground- 616mm Race sag - 526mm AFAIK the race sag in the book refers to the difference between having the bike on the stand and race sag not the difference between no rider and with a rider?
  17. G'day mate, reading over your thread and the rear sag measurements you had posted, could you tell me what stage were they measured or where there mods like a spring change? Measurement 1: On stand = 650 On Ground = 605 With Rider = 531 *Actual Race sag = 74mm (605-531) **Actual Free/Static sag = 45mm (650-605) Measurement 2: On stand = 647 On Ground = 606 With Rider = 532 *Actual Race sag = 74mm (606-532) **Actual Free/Static sag = 41mm (647-606) Measurement 3: On stand = 643 On Ground = 607 With Rider = 530 *Actual Race sag = 77mm (607-530) **Actual Free/Static sag = 36mm (643-607) Why am l asking? Because is M1 your starting point, then M2 is a change like more preload and M3 is another change in preload and this final. Or did you change a spring in there somewhere? It's important because those numbers indicate that , whilst measurement 3 says too me that the free sag number says the spring rate is about right, M1 and 2 says too me that the spring rate is too firm for you. Of all the measurements, your race sag is just too little which says to me that the rear to way too firm and it doesn't matter if you put Toby Price's forks on your bike, with that little amount of sag, you are changing the geometry of the bike as you are forcing more weight on the front, the bike probably isn't hooking up the best as the power is transferring to the rear too aggressive as the bike wants to force the tyre into the ground, you're feeling every bump, back end skipping and the bike is probably steering too quickly...then you add the changes you have made too the front and the whole bike probably feels too stiff or harsh? I don't know what your rear spring is or how many turns your preload collar is but you should really aim for around 100-120mm of race sag (KTM say 105-115) because the balance of the bike is way off according to the numbers you've shown - if you have the preload collar almost wound out to achieve 110mm sag, then the spring is too firm and the opposite is you've wound down the preload collar almost half way, then the spring is too light (l bet it's too firm). Once you've got a good sag number on the rear, you might have a chance of determining whether the clickers work or not....what type of riding are you doing again? Deleted by me because of brain fade, verbal diarrhoea!!! I'll start again, what changes did you make to acheive M1, M2 and M3 measurements and was M1 the stock setup when you bought? Measurement 1: On stand = 650 On Ground = 605 With Rider = 531 *Actual Race sag = 119mm (650-531) **Actual Free/Static sag = 45mm (650-605) Measurement 2: On stand = 647 On Ground = 606 With Rider = 532 *Actual Race sag = 115mm (647-532) **Actual Free/Static sag = 41mm (647-606) Measurement 3: On stand = 643 On Ground = 607 With Rider = 530 *Actual Race sag = 113mm (643-530) **Actual Free/Static sag = 36mm (643-607) Having revised what l earlier said, your race sag seem to be in the ball park but the free sag indicates that the spring maybe too firm for your weight which can cause the bike to be harsh as the shock is not soaking the bumps with you on it and instead transferring to the chassis.
  18. Last week
  19. Hello my name is Dominic and I live in Melbourne's inner Western Suburbs, I am a level two to level two plus rider.
  20. Must be something about the colour makes people completely in love straight away the orange bikes have never had a special place in my heart ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  21. You ride a 150 ktm or used to?

  22. Yep.....that sums it, really enjoyed the tracks, thanks Shaun Only hiccup for me was a slight slip off line through some deep water filled ruts that resulted in a bit of a "bath" but even that couldn't spoil the ride.
  23. 2021 Betas - Available August NEW RR 2T-4T MY 2021 The Red Enduro is back, in better shape than ever! After two months without off-road riding, the Red World Champions of Enduro are back with a new Model Year. The Italian bike designed and assembled entirely at Betamotorโ€™s Rignano sullโ€™Arno premises, brings in the new 2021 RR Range with numerous evolutions of the new generation model launched in 2020. In 2019, the world-renowned duo Steve Holcombe and Brad Freeman achieved a double world victory unprecedented for Beta. Holcombe became E3 World Champion, while Freeman achieved the same result for the prestigious EnduroGP. In addition to the tests performed in competition fields, the huge success of the RRs among enthusiasts all over the world has enabled Betamotor technicians to further test, develop, and improve the RRโ€™s, resulting in a 2021 bike that is a mix of high quality, technological innovation, and riding pleasure. This relentless quest for success which has been built on top level competitions, exhausting tests of Betaโ€™s research and development team, and feedbacks from enthusiasts have made it possible to fine-tune and apply numerous improvements on the new RRโ€™s. A more aggressive look and an all-red colouration are the icing on the cake for this Model Year ฬถ with the Beta logo in centre stage on the radiator shrouds. The new RR models in a nutshell: RR 2T 125 The smallest bike in the Beta range, it is the lightest and easiest to handle. In pure racing style, it is suitable for both young riders coming up from the lower categories and more expert riders looking for a fun bike. RR 2T 200 The chassis set-up and engine derived from its smaller sibling, ensuring itโ€™s extremely light weight and excellent handling but with decidedly greater torque and power. Oil injection and an electric starter complete the package which is perfect for Enduro enthusiasts. RR 2T 250 Ideal for those looking for a gentler 2-stroke bike with slightly less power and torque than top-of-the-range models to ensure excellent handling. RR 2T 300 Made for those who appreciate a big engine with significant torque at any speed. Suitable for those who favor long gearing. RR 4T 350 This is the easiest-to-handle bike in the 4-stroke model range; it favors high-rev riding yet retains a very linear power output. RR 4T 390 With an ideal handling to power ratio, its winning feature lies in its outstanding traction. RR 4T 430 A high-performance engine that is at its best when the rider exploits the long gearing and significant torque. RR 4T 480 This bike best expresses itself in wide open spaces. Its characteristics are similar to the 430 model but with even greater torque and power, suitable for more expert and physically fit riders. The updates list: - Updated frame in the steering head area and in the reinforced plates for improved feel and durability. - The accessories supplied have been modified to provide better protection against wear. - Improved rear subframe, more robust and durable. - New side-panel mounting, for easier installation - Updated tank cover cap for improved mounting. - Renewed seat improved on both the base plate and the foam โ€“ now providing better support for a more comfortable ride. - Optimization of the air filter box for improved waterproofing; new mounting in the filter inspection side panel for a more practical use. - New electrical system, with improved charging efficiency. - Upgrade of numerous internal components of the ZF fork, to further improve fluidity and reliability. - New shock absorber setting to increase traction. - Updated speedometer giving better reliability and precision. - New bright red colouring and graphics. Available from: August 2020 Pricing remains unchanged from 2020 models.
