Nice bike. First time I have seen a `96 with a `95 rear fender. It does look better. Did you buy that from Allan? Were you lucky enough to get the stock muffler too?
You already have the better pegs on there. The stock ones were about 2/3 as wide.

Are you saying the fender is not right or the bike is a 95? Looks just like a 96 I saw in an old magazine article. Yes, I came with the OE muffler. Should I put it back on? Is the one pictures for this bike? I plan to repack the muffler on it. As it's a little loud for back yard riding.

The pegs look small to me compare to my KTMs. The Bilit ones they sell for the Rev3 will not fit?

Did not get it from Allan...

It is a `96, but the fender was gray. The 96 was the ugliest Beta made, but the bike rode fine. OTP was a company owned by Allan. That muffler is a spark arrester made by OTP out of an answer blank. The pegs look like the stock Rev3 ones. If you look at the posts from the guy with the `95 you can see the stock pegs and fender. By the way we usually run 4-5 psi in the rear and 6-7 up front. Have Fun!!

Cool. I was about to order a new fender as mine is cracked. I will order a 95 as I like the blue.

Thanks for the info...

Suggestion: Zip tie or otherwise repair the old fender and leave it on. Keep the new one on the shelf. Many of us have found ourselves ass-over-teakettle once or twice while figuring out this trials stuff.

I second the save the new one. I remember replacing a new one on a `97 and in less than 10 minutes I broke it! I just sold a 96 that was my sons. Had the rear fender zipped tied for two years, probably cost me about two dozen zip ties!

Yea, the broke fender is already drilled for zip ties. The seller must have told me 5 times to not replace the fender. I do plan to get a fender while I can and stash it. But... part of me wants to fix it as I have restored many bikes and hate to leave things broken...

OE exhaust back on it ---

Picked this up in December 2011. I grew up riding enduro, but this is harder = no seat!

Keep an eye on your gas tank vent.They clog up and bike will start and run great for 10 minutes then leave you a mile in the woods kicking and swearing.

This bike runs good but shows its wear. I'm told this was Geoff Aarons' minders bike! looks like hell compared to your bikes!

Mine has wrong year fender as well. 97's had gray front fenders.

Yea, it cut out on me when I test rode it and the seller told me to leave the cap on loose. I replaced the cap with the OE one off my 450EXC. Fits perfect.

I ride trail with 3 guys on Beta 450 great bikes but I like orange.

Back yard action ---

Good pic. Wow three Betas! Mine is the only one in the state of Ct. You need to put your Beta in your sig line w/ your other bikes!

Now I know where to get my gas cap! Thanks!

Hanging idle -- pilot jet size?

When I whack it good on a jump over a log the RPMs stay high when I land and I'm off the throttle. Is this normal due to the large flywheel? I have never riden another trials bike.

It has a 27.5 pilot and a 145 main jet. Anyone know if this sounds right? I think it's a little lean.But it starts great and the fan only cycles on 30% of the time.

Check for main bearing wear on any 2T which continues to run on a closed throttle, as wear in the mains will mean the crank seals will let in air and the bike will keep running. Most are under the mistaken view that you only need to change the seals, but if there is any play in the bearings whatever this will be a complete waste of time.

Bit of a thread dredge but I just picked up a Techno 250. Great bike though I almost looped it riding up some stairs tonight. Even in 2nd with a whiff of throttle it will stand on the back wheel while going up stairs.



Now I need to find a owners manual and figure out what the oil ratio is and what to run, but I don't want to start an oil thread. We all know that leads to dark places
