New bits

Its been a while since last posted but well. I have done a few things between maintenance and mods.

Have changed the chain and sprockets and now trying 15x49 so far so good


then finally replaced the shock with Hyperpro taking recommendation of Colebach and others



on the first pic you can see I have re-installed the fuel can used several years ago for another long-ish ride. It works fine as it did before

Great stuff, That Awakino challenge is pretty special alright.

Just before the Dusty Butt last year I went to Top South Island for a bit of site-seeing, introduction to a couple of friends to adventure biking and test ride mods to the bike

This is before the start, ready to roll

yes same, I'm trying some of their skills drills. As well as some from Jimmy Lewis and others. Lately I'm trying the one of using the clutch and low revs to lift front wheel on the BMw and KtM and is amazing

its good fun haven't had the change to ride other than on my lawn but is surprisingly easy to ride

I'm slowly learning what you can do with a clutch besides change gears. You will have a blast once you get out in the woods. I'm off to the gravel pit this afternoon to practice finding the balance point for wheelies and getting the rear end off the ground. Learning simple techniques in slower motion is what these bikes excel at....if it all goes wrong you just let go the bike and start again.

There isn't much to break on them cept the levers and the rear guard, which I've done. Cheap handguards fixed the lever problem and plastic welder fixed up the guard. The Beta's have a tendency to burn out stators so it pays to remove the plastic flywheel cover after a long ride and check for condensation, mine has got a bit damp in there from time to time but no stator burnouts. MarkS had a few on his I understand. Good luck and be sure to post lots of pics and videos of ya progress
