  1. Im going to have a look at this today , the bike is around 2004 beta 80 . im pretty sure its the return spring as I have to move the selector back up by hand , I havnt looked yet , but wondered if its a hard job ?
  2. Hi all I’m after a replacement spring for my lads 80 my plan it to cut the spring down a little , and drop the forks through the yokes to give my lad an inch or so while he is getting to grips , are the springs the same as 125 ? I cant seem to find an 80cc shock
  3. Hi , all .. my lads beta 80 has a bit of an issue with gear selection , feels very vague and lever doesn't seem to return to great, bit hard to feel through the gears if that makes sense ... is there any common issues, I thinking along the lines of return spring ? , Im going to be doing some tidying up on the bike soon so thought it makes sense to look in to this .. cheers ..
  4. this has become a real pain to know what to do for the best, I dont seem to see many SW betas going ... well cheap / lower price ..
  5. The 300 is quite lively , think 250 are more sort after and maybe the better choice , that being said I have ridden a few trials and seen guys riding 125 at a really good club level ... Id go for the 250 if it was me ..
  6. Hi everyone looking for some advice .. So I wanted to get my son started in trials , He is 12 in Jan and is only around 4'6 (138cm ) roughly ... He is a bit small for his age I guess , reasonably strong and fit very active.. Anyway , wanted to get him riding , so the other day I saw a beta 80cc big wheel bike , which when I looked at it looked like it would be the right size for him with plenty of growing room .. well today I took him out with it , and the bike seems really big for him , he isn't able to start it yet , some because of lack of technique and some because the bike is big .. we pottered about for an hour or so, with me by his side , he was getting used to using the throttle and clutch , and was very wobbly on the bike to the point that I was pretty much keeping things balanced and upright ... I know its a big learning curve for him and we all started somewhere ... I initially thought the 80cc big wheel would be the better choice as he would grow into it , but im a bit unsure now ... I paid £950 its 2004 , all seems good with it tho it needs a good clean .. I was going to get him to work on it and clean it so he would learn all about them .. Now what to do ? , Should I try and sell the bike? , and try and pick up a small wheel 80 , or even a 50 cc just to get him going with things , or is it better to keep the big wheel 80 which I bought, and preserver with this .. Or should I try and pick up a 50 cc to give him a bit more experience on a smaller bike ? .. He isn't interested in any of the electric bikes at all . .. we are on a reasonable budget I don't mind buying something but cant afford to wast money if you know what I mean .. I was hoping to get some advice from other trial parents ... Cheers . .
  7. sweet .... that's what I wanted to hear ..
  8. I bought a BMX ... for my son , and myself .. I have been riding with him and It has made an improvement with my riding .. I know that trials cycles and BMX are different the bmx brakes are non existent and most of the tricks are done while moving , a trials cycle are strong on the breaks and most tricks are performed from stationary ... I found that a trials cycle were double the price , ... and I fancied a Bmx to ride with my son ... It has really helped with balance , and feels better suited than my mountain bike .. I even took it to the skate park and showed the youngsters how its done ..

    No start

    i had simular ... My bike 2017 , 250RR ... run sweet , then for no reason started to run like a pig ... then wouldn't start , thought it was the carb seemed like fuel blockage , but the carb was clean, swapped out fuel, had a fiddle and she started running sweet again ,.. but it seemed like every two rides or so it would really bog down and run like a pig starts hunting and such, no power in the high revs .. I had been going round in circles had the carb off a few times now , clean air filter , checked wiring , new plug , new fuel ..... I was getting a bit p****d off and almost ready to trade it in , then I spoke to a few places one dealer said that it sounded like the cdi playing up , I then called steve saunders , and he was pretty sure 99% he said that it was the cdi unit ... have now today fitted the new cdi unit , also stuck a in-line filter on it .. seems ok so far , the real test will be at the trials on this sunday .. I hope its sorted now .. but apparently they had issues with the cdi units on the earlier bikes ... I have to say tho I feel a bit sceptical on the reliability of the bike ... I hope you have got to the bottom of it does sound a bit like what I have been going through ..
  10. hi , guys .. as it says , has anyone fitted an in-line filter on a TRS rr , mine didn't come with one , and I thought it would be good to fit one , simple job new hose with a filter in the middle , not been on a test ride but had a little 10min around the garage all seemed ok .. In the clear filter it seems to not fill up completely ? , and has a little air in there .. bike seemed to run ok .... was thinking was there a reason why a filter wasn't fitted as standard , by fitting one could/would this mess up the fueling of the bike ? im prob over thinking this ...
  11. Im going to be swapping back to the standard 10-40 as soon as I need a new chain and sprocket , also the bike is fitted with a slow throttle tube, so it must be slow in comparison to a standard bike , I haven't had chance to ride a standard one yet
  12. I chatted with Steve Saunders today about the gearing , he said that its a fairly normal thing done , he said that it should tame the bike down a tad .. said as I get used the bike and my riding improves to move back up to standard .. but the difference are fairly small , so im told...
  13. sure , ... Im guessing its been done to make the bike a little more responsive in lower revs and maybe slower moving for stuff.. or maybe the shop didn't have any other sizes .. lol ...
