    Beta 80's

    Thanks so much for the replies I purchased a 2018 big wheel from a friend the other day. It needs a couple of small jobs doing. Exhaust repack and a bent lever. Fine otherwise. The plan is let her ride it this year when we're practicing and on the occasional local club trials etc. At the end of the girls champs this year, move onto it. She can ride the OSET 24 for this year. Unless she really takes to the Beta but to be honest I cant see her been any different to most other kids in terms of transition time. One thing, the last owner also mentioned that the carb must be cleaned after every single use. That's a bit of a pain in the a*** isnt it. There's no drain plug and he said it always has some water in. Is this a case of he's washed it and not blocked up the air inlet. Or does dirt get in somewhere else. Failing that as it's a ktm engine, will a ktm carb fit. We owned a 65 for a year or so and had no carburation issues at all. I think I cleaned it twice while I was in there anyway swopping brass

    Beta 80's

    Hi guys. Considering getting my Daughter a big wheel beta 80, from her OSET 24. There is very little info online I could see? I will probably purchase a new bike as I think we will keep it a while. Are there any common faults/mods? Or are they good to go out of the box? Almost everyone seems to fit Ohlins shocks we have seen out and about, and a few with jitsie wheels also. She's at a decent level of riding, prob mid-low end of a clubman level. Thanks
