Beta Demo day Anza, Ca. Jan.11, 2020

Recommended Posts

A couple buddies and I did the Beta demo day in Anza on Saturday and had a blast. I have to say I think I am in love with the 390 RR-S. Much a do all desert and single track with a luggable long stroke motor.  Also checked out their EVO 300 trials bike. That little thing is awesome and would be a skills builder for sure.  Here is a short vid of the 390 if interested, I forgot to turn on the camera otherwise.

Cool....sounds like you were "lugging" right along!

Was not much opportunity to open it up, actually none. My only gripe with the whole affair....This fella tried to gas it and look what happened. Dislocated shoulder and wind knocked out, but OK.

Did you try the 500rrs?

Loving mine. A bit more on the big end and handles longer slab sections at a low rpm at 65 easily. 
Only downside to me is I got about 50 miles more per 3 gallons on my KTM500. 
A big deal if our on a long ride in Baja. 
I just bought a 2 gallon Roto Pack solution

Now go see Steve at C&D and buy one. 
Get him to install a 3 gallon tank and a Seat Concepts comfort seat. Then go over the bike and check bolts. 
Mine lost bolts out of the chain slider, chain guard and radiator shrouds on the first ride.

Gear down 1 tooth on countersprocket(bike comes with 2 extra’s from factory)
I had the fork tubes hard anodized and lower fork tubes Titanium Nitrate coasted so they last forever but probably not necessary (I’m hard on stuff)

Other than that they’re ready to go.

Ken - what were the driving factors that sold you on the switch from the KTM to the Beta?

Price out the door

The way it runs bone stock 

The trailtech voyager is cool

Im 6ft tall but the lower seat height and center of gravity is great

Steve talked me into it 

Try something different. Garage was all Orange.

Haha...cool, thanks for the feedback! Any plans you've heard of for an after market, larger fuel tank for it?
