  1. I haven't put it on the scales but I have the impression that the weight distribution of my 2013 EVO 300 is biased towards the rear. Sag and spring rates (stock on the front, uprated on the rear) seem good but I need to push down about a foot in front of the lowest point of the frame to get the front and rear suspension working together. I'm tempted to drop the fork through the yokes by a few mm to put more weight on the front but, being a total novice I don't know if a bias towards the rear is considered a bad thing? Any thoughts?
  2. Yes, thanks - I caught that having just serviced the linkage whilst replacing the spring. I've been sitting typing the values into a spread sheet whilst watching TV. PDF attached... 2010-2014 Beta EVO Torque Values.pdf
  3. Brilliant! Thanks very much for taking the time to post this, I really appreciate it. Gavin
  4. Ok... I fitted the stiffer springs from Beta UK yesterday (80Nm front, 'K8' rear) and refilled the fork with 5w oil - the old fluid that came out was literally the consistency of custard! If anyone is interested, for my suited-and-booted 14 stone, this setup gives 55mm front sag with zero preload, and 60mm rear sag with the adjuster about 10mm out from full in. Totty69 -the only torque info that Beta UK had was the table for engine and engine-to-frame fasteners so if you have more than that and can post a scan/photo I'd be very grateful. In the absence of any other info I torqued the axle and caliper bolts to a bit more than I would on my mountain bike 😄
  5. Thanks, that's very helpful. I'll try Lampkin's tomorrow and get back to you if they can't help.
  6. Thanks, that sounds like exactly what I was looking for. Hopefully someone will post a link or pdf.
  7. Hello, I'm new to Trials Central and this is my first post... I decided to have a go at trials, bought a 2013 EVO 300 2T and have downloaded all the manuals and info I could find. I spent a couple of seasons club racing short circuits and built my own 750 Yamahas, so I'm reasonably confident on the tools but specs/settings supplied by Beta seem a bit sketchy compared to what I'm used to from Yamaha. I'm about 14 stone suited and booted and have bought a pair of 10% uprated springs to fit. For the fork, the owners manual says "Note : For screw A (triple tree clamps): torque wrench setting 7,8 : 9,1 Nm" but gives no torque info for the caps or anything else; I'm guessing 7.8Nm is the lower yoke and 9.1Nm the upper one? Is there a document or manual anywhere with more torque setting info? The Beta is built a lot lighter than what I'm used to and I don't want to strip any threads. Thanks, Gavin
