Wolfman Beta Plus or Mini

Hi all,

I know several folks have the Beta Plus on their Scrams, has anyone tried the Mini Beta? Wolfman uses the same Scrambler image to advertise both bags. Anyone know which one it actually is? The pic is below.

Thanks

I'm 90% sure that's the bigger one.

This photo shows them both side by side.

Selling my Scrambler due to me paying lots of money to park (and not ride) it...

You know your bike is quite striking and a sharp contrast to the Scramblers that see regular dirt duty. I think you might want to consider stopping doing anything more before you have FUBAR... Just a thought here...

Thanks Sprouty
That is what the powder coating fellow said. I should be alright! Picking up parts next week!

I put this folding one on *before* I broke mine. I think it's for a Honda CRF250 or something. Will try to find the info for you.

I dropped my bike in a creek a few weeks back and replaced the broken shifter with the above part. It fit great and the spacing (peg to shifter) is just a hair longer which fit my size 10 a little better anyway.

Shifter options

I bought a "Sunline Alloy Folding Shift Lever - Honda CRF 150 R - 2007-2012"... it fit, but I didn't like riding with it, so I tossed it.

Like this one:

I know what you mean, just playing with the look of the bike a little, lets face it the thing is Tangerene Orange, the Commando look isn't going to happen!

As far as dirt, the bike has mosied up and down many a mile of dirt and mud.
