First gear is so low that the revs are always high.
I've cleaned the carb and adjusted it to death.
Would be good to hear if anyone else has the same problem, or has found an answer to it.
Isn't the engine based on a small crosser, KTM???. Just seems that the engine runs like a small crosser, useless at low revs, then wheeehee all of a sudden!

We also have a new 05 Beta Rev50 which we got shortly after we met you in Kamloops last year. Right from new it was not right, off the bottom.I got some good hints from Outlaw Dave, removed all the breather hoses from the carb, ran some good gas(race fuel) and it was a lot better. However, it still would not pull 2nd gear real well in the sections. Then in the fall while riding one of our 2day events we had an incident where the kill switch was shorting out at the handle bar. I got a good zap out of it too. We took it apart and re-did the connections. It was still shorting out and we were running out of time so I took the kill switch off completely. All of a sudden it was like a different bike. It would pull me in second gear let alone my son. I beleive that some how the kill switch shorting out was drawing such a current when under load, that it diminished the power somewhat. Whatever it was, it is sooooo good now. My son uses 2nd gear pretty much all the time now and it pulls great (for a 50) and revs to the moon!
