    modern bike poll

    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.

    whats the best engine oil for a beta

    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

    2017 Factory 300 banging noise from engine

    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.

    Picking a new bike ..

    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.

    2017 Factory 300 banging noise from engine

    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
  6. 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.

    You will not go wrong with a beta and the 300 is a soft bike unless you really wind the throttle up. I have a 2017 Factory 300 and I flippen love it, it just pulls up anything and to be honest I have found it better than my normal 250 clubman one for been smooth. There are no bad points really I would always keep the back shock dog links greased as they can go if not looked after other than that plenty of oil changes and it will just keep giving you hours of fun.

    Battery hour meter for 2018 Beta Evo 200

    I got a free one with my Factory 300 not bothered putting it on it's a waste of time. I have a rough idea how many hours am putting on the bike and I work it from that and to be honest if you look after the bike plenty of oil changes it should run for at least a few years before it will need new rings etc. I know folk who never touched there bikes other than the normal stuff you need to change or replace like chain, sprockets etc etc I really would not worry about keeping track of the hours used

    New Factory Beta 2019

    Looks nice but I think my 17 will still do what it needs to do. I will replace mine when it starts to wear out

    Evo factory 300 carb

    I had the same issue on my new 2017 Factory 300 I rang John Lampkin and he told me it is normal and it's the way they set them. He said if I try and adjust the pinging out I will upset bike completely. I have never touched it and always make sure I use top notch fuel and the right amount of oil I always put a few ml less in and the bike does it's job pulls like a bus and is very smooth in sections. I hope this helps

    New Start / Which Bike

    I have had many bikes and Beta is always my go to brand these days. Never had an issue they do what they say on the tin and if you go for the 250T it's a super easy bike to ride

    Beta 4T Normal or Noisy?

    Sounds like the chain slapping maybe tensioner is slightly worn or needs adjusting. My bro has one of these and it's really quite
