  1. New challenges ...

    don't ride without boots - I tried it when I got my bike (before I got boots and I couldn't wait just to ride around the back garden) - its amazing the damage those footpegs can do to your shins - even of they look rounded!!
  2. 2 Stroke oil

    this stuff sounds similar to the SHTT stuff...
  3. My Babies

    you have a lovely "family" there!
  4. Beta Rev-3 270 rough running? Petrol Info?

    I think if it was mine, I'd run it on super unleaded as recommended and just enjoy it - if it is running well and has power as you say, I think you should have some fun with it.

    here is mine - hope the link works. Just started so running cold and a bit rattly!
  6. Beta Rev-3 270 rough running? Petrol Info?

    Ah...yes, mine does the "pop pop" thing as well - I think it's quite normal and I quite like the sound (which comes from the exhaust). Maybe you should video it making the noise and post it so others with more knowledge than me can diagnose it?
  7. Beta Rev-3 270 rough running? Petrol Info?

    I have a 2007 model and the previous owner told me to use the super unleaded (97) which I have done - I don't get the effect you describe. Hope you get it sorted.
  8. Maybe buying 2002 Rev 3 270

    Hi Travis - I have a 2007 Rev 3 270. I am a beginner and I chose it because there was a nice example nearby, I had heard good things about Rev 3s and I got excited and probably a bit carried away!! Having said that I have not experienced any frights from it. I ride it very steadily on red wobbler's routes and I seem to stay in second for every section. I do use the clutch - probably too much, but when I try not to it doesn't seem to mind and I've found it hard to stall it. Maybe mine is a bit old and tired and therefore not like it was when it was new, but it suits me. Other riders at my club who have 250s and 200s tried it and said it was a bit of a handful but I think they rev their engines more and ride with a different style - when you rev mine it does have a lot of power, but I guess you get used to things. I think I'd choose a smaller engine next time (and I loved the feel of a beta 4 stroke I tried the other day) , but this isn't beyond me to control. I guess you need to try a swap one afternoon and see how you do.
  9. Kill button not working

    if you connect a wire to the connector in place of the switch and touch it to a good earth point, you will be able to see if the circuit works or not - if it does, you know there is an issue with the kill switch, if not, you may have another fault elsewhere. The Earth connection needs to be good too - make sure it is clean.

    automatic tighteners on the straps - great idea!
  11. Kill switch

    normally a kill switch is open (when on) and closed (when you press it) this is because it is making a route to Earth when you press it. Unless I'm mistaken it sounds like your' s might not be the cause of the problem.
  12. 2008 Rev 4t shock help

    ooh that's going to need more than cable ties and duct tape! Hope you find a replacement.
  13. Beta EVO3004T "she had the same idea"

    Your English is very good Mark! ...and certainly about 100% better thank my Italian! I can't offer any help with your pump seal problem - it may be possible to pick out the seal and replace without disturbing the shaft but you should wait until someone who knows can advise properly. I can suggest that you may mean "bladder discharge" rather than "prostatic" - unless you were really enjoying your ride!! Regards, Mark

    Thanks for such a detailed write up - as you have access to the materials (and clearly, the knowhow!) it makes sense to use them! I am sure it would be possible using your information and some similar materials to make a similar accessory in a normal home workshop but hard to achieve that quality without lots of practice - very nice. Thanks again, Mark

    that's a really neat job and great idea - well made! Did you mould it over the header to get the correct shape? If so, what did you use as a release agent?
