BETA EVO 250 2016

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Brand new to the trials world and looking forward to getting out on my "New to me" 2016 Beta Evo 250.
So just two things, probably mentioned loads here already but really would like some reassurance on Petrol/Oil Ratio, some say this, some say that. Just don't want to wreck it before I start. So 1 litre of Petrol with 20ml of Oil? that be fine or maybe 25ml? Just not sure.

Also I noticed that the rear brake light didn't come on, opened up the cover and to my surprise no bulb, not even the housing that would hold it or wiring... Is that right for this bike?

Thanks, Looking forward to asking more dumb questions as I venture into the world of 2 Strokes :)

Otis.

Had 5 betas and ran them all at 75:1

1000 ml super unleaded fuel : 13 ml two stroke oil.

They all ran clean with no issues what so ever.

Cheers @dabado64 Just wondering would you premix or, is it common to premix 5 litres of petrol and oil and only use the required amount for the bike i.e maybe 2 litres to fill it, would it go off if left in the container premixed? Seams so many use the 5 litre ratio as the guide.

Ta,

If you use super unleaded it doesn't go off,just mix up 5 litres and use it when you want

5L is 2 to 3 trials or practice sessions, and it'll easily keep over 3 months.

Anything in the range of 70 to 80ml of Synthetic 2 stroke oil is fine, best to pick a number and stick to it. Either trials specific or something with a low burning point ideally not a "racing" oil or you may get spooge.

 

Take a look at the clutch thread particularly the shim and gearbox oil recommendations, a dragging clutch can really hold back your learning.

Get yourself a 5 litre can of Exol Optima fully synthetic 2t. It’s usually around £30. Should be on eBay. It’ll last a life time. It’s excellent clean burning oil that works perfect in trials bikes or any 2t in my experience.
