  1. 10 front 42 rear is fine. It's what I use on my 2014 300. But my son prefers 11/43 on his 2013 300.
  2. Yes. We have a soft start-fast that my son has had first on his Beta Evo 125 and now on his Beta Evo 300. Must be four years old now, still looks like new and shows no signs of wear.
  3. He's using Putoline light gear box oil. That is the cheap runny stuff. I'll only use Motul 300V 5W30 in my 300 Evo.
  4. Definitely went out of favor. I don't know of any front tubeless tyres available now.
  5. If your after original then Beta UK. They hold good stock levels of beta parts are very quick to dispatch orders and do FREE UK delivery on internet orders. http://www.beta-uk.com/
  6. For a bike like the Beamish you'll need Renthal 7/8" trials bars. Either 735-01 which have a 5.5 inch rise or 735-02 which have a 6 inch rise(dependent on how tall you are). A lot of sidecar drivers will cut a lot of length off the right hand side of the bar to give more clearance for trees and other such things. On my own outfit the right hand side has been cut down by an inch & a half. On the left I have one and one half grips fitted so that I can move my hand in towards the centre when turning right or needing to get my weight over to the right. I hope this helps.
  7. On my Beta Evo 300 outfit I use a 11/42 set up that is about what most solo riders around here use. Looking at the Talon Engineering web site http://finder.talon-eng.co.uk/products/tg376520/?tpf_manufacturer=35&tpf_model=430&tpf_year=1639&bikes_category=front-sprockets&bikes_subcategory=standard they do a 43 tooth 520 pitch rear sprocket and fronts from 10 up to 14 teeth for the RL325. So try 12/43 and see how you get on. If you find it over geared you can always drop down to a 10 tooth front and take a link out of the chain if need be.
  8. I fitted an S3 one on my sons 2013 300 2 stroke, as it was such a pig to kick over. It had loads more compression than my 2014 300 2 stroke and he had just moved up from a 125 at the time. It softened the power down a little. But as we had a full Bossi Arrow exhaust to fit we weren't that bothered.
  9. Have you tried Talon Engineering? they made me some great one off sprockets. http://www.talon-eng.co.uk/contact-us/
  10. Before you start knocking on the hub try another bearing. It is always possible that you have got an undersized one. With the amount of counterfeit rubbish coming in from China and other far eastern country's it's worth double checking. I have even had bearings from a reputable suppler that were listed and packaged as SKF turn out to be forged rubbish.
  11. I was asked about youth riders and the EM. With the power specs put out be Electric motion, as far as it looks to me they are to powerful to meet the current ACU limit for both A & B classes of 10 bhp as measured at the back wheel. But I would love to get one on a dynamometer to check though.
  12. Fitted them to my Model 49 Sherpa. Totally transformed the clutch action and made it a pleasure to ride.
  13. Look Here. http://www.beta-uk.com/images/stories/spares-pdfs/2008/rev250-270frame.pdf
  14. About the nearest manual to your year is this one. http://www.sherco.com/tl_files/core/pdf/manuels/2009MaintenanceManual_ST2T.pdf Took me 30 seconds to find by doing a Google search for Sherco user manual.
  15. Getting hold of a new Ossa or Gas Gas is going to be hard and what is going to be the situation with parts in years to come? That basically leaves you Beta, Sherco and Scorpa 125's and for me it would have to be the Beta. An engine & gearbox that has been well proven over the years. Great spares backup here in the UK from a company (John Lampkin imports) that has been with the brand for years. My own lad came up on a 2011 Evo and we never had a days trouble with it. He now rides a 2013 300 Evo and I have a 2014 Evo outfit.
