    Left leg start

    Super easy to kick over. My mate has just bought a new 2019 300 and he was really worried about left hand kick but after two outings said it was way easier than he thought it was going to be.

    The new 19 300 I have just bought is probs the best Factory one so far the engine is amazing and also the forks and shock seem more in tune then last models, as far as I know they have put new damper cartridges in. I think if Beta start putting higher end shocks on like the Raga one it really will shoot the price up. Beta have always come in at a fantastic selling point, while other makes are going over the £7000 mark Beta are trying to stay within that £6349 price. My new Beta also uses braktec my 17 had braktec too best brakes you can have on a trials bike very powerful. I had the chance to change bikes but stuck with Beta they do what they say on the tin, they just work and are one of the best clubman bikes going super easy to ride.

    I heard the same news from the horses mouth NO fuel injection just yet but they have been working on it for the last two years and are still in tests. For 2020 new colour and that's about it. Will be same as 19 which I bought a few weeks ago managed to bag myself one very lucky to get one. I think the 19 is the nicest one they have done and I will be sticking with mine until there is a big leap forward from them.
  5. Ok latest update. I changed where I get my fuel from and put in octane boost which defo makes the bike run better it's much smoother and crisper off the throttle and does not rattle as much. I have also found out that the only difference between mine and the 18 and 19 bikes they are running a slightly larger piston, interesting. It seems it is a carb issue when the bike is climbing a long steep bank the fuel is moving to the back of the float bowl causing fuel starvation. The pro riders put a bigger float bowl on to stop this from happening when they are hitting big steps and the bike is vertical. So it is something you either live with or put on a bigger float bowl, to be honest for the odd time am climbing a long hill I don't think I need to do it and I certainly will not be hitting any big steeps anytime soon lol. And I have also been told for the few seconds it rattles it will not damage anything at all. So I think I have a conclusion to this common issue. I will now just get out and ride and stop worrying about it.
  6. Some good ideas there I could defo try running without air filter first and see what happens. I already run it on the highest octane I can get. Yes I do have borescope and will take a look this week. I will start small and work my way through those ideas thanks very much for the suggestions
  7. I have now spoken to John Lampkin who has informed me after having a good look at it that it is normal? He says as the bike goes between low jet and high jet there is a moment that there is hardly any fuel going into the bore so when it reaches the point of getting the fuel the piston will slap a bit. I still find it very disconcerting that the piston slaps that hard but he says it's a common thing on the new Betas and not to worry about it. I have asked a few folk who have 18s and 19s they all say they don't have it happen on their bikes. It kinda makes you want to go get a new one but mine is still new and I should not have to get rid of it. I really don't know what to do for the best because to my ears it's a nasty noise
  8. Hi everyone latest update as of today 25th June the shop can not fix the issue they have replaced electric stuff and the issue is still there. The bike has to go back to Lampkin imports for assessment as it is now up to them what happens. I have no idea when I will get it back. I am gutted and this is the first time I have ever had an issue with a Beta. It's going to be interesting to find out what the problem is.
  9. Beta all day long. One of the most bought bikes going you see loads at the trials comps. I have test ridden a few and would not buy anything else.
  10. I have been using rock oil since getting my 17 factory and it has worked great but I now have a local supplier for Putoline so once I have used up what I have am switching to what my local Beta shop recommend as I think it works slightly better for the clutch
  11. Just wanted to add to this post. The bike has now been looked at and it seems the new CDi that they replaced a month ago has gone so they have ordered a new one from the Beta factory so hopefully this will resolve the issue.
  12. TRS is a cross between a Gas Gas and a Beta they are very popular I have had a go on one and they are very soft bike so maybe very good for someone returning to the sport. I have been off trials for about 20 years I bought a Beta Factory bike and I love it very nice power delivery but loads there if you want it and they are so reliable too. Try and get a test ride on the ones you are intrested in if you can before you buy one go down to your local practice ground someone will always let you try their bike.
  13. Hi everyone I have been running it on highest octane the bike has only done about 25 hours. I spoke with Acklams where I got it from and they have told me to take it back to be looked at as it should not be that bad after only 25/30 hours their mechanic said it could be a few different things so hopefully it will get sorted. And this why I buy from a great shop like Acklams their after sales service is just bang on. Thanks everyone for your suggestions
  14. Hi all, This may have been covered but here goes. I have 30 hours on the bike and everything was fine from new but once it was run in it started to bang under load from long step banks. The bike shop sent me a new CDi thinking this was the issue all was fine last week and until the later part of today the banging came back after the bike was really hot. This banging noise does not happen on the new 19 model so I am lost to why it is doing it. Has anyone got any ideas to what it could be? I had betas years ago and not had this kind of issue I have only just come back into the sport and with it banging like it is am worried it's doing damage to the bore or piston.
