Ok thanks, you're probably right, I'll check it out. The stock unit is probably worn out as it's tight and still slipping.

Yes the Beta EVO is a trials bike. They come in 2 stroke, (which is what I have) and 4 stroke. They are a blast and the low down torque delivery makes for a lot of fun. If you get a chance to try a...

I wasn't comparing them directly, more of an observation with respect to how mediocre the 250 was performing. Obviously it's not an apples to apples comparison as I mentioned.

I have the same set up. You might need to remove the tank to find a little slack in the throttle cable run. My cables are fine with a 2.75 inch HDB riser and the Flexx bars.

Hmmm, I run about 12 in the back and more air doesn't help traction so that's not a great option. Two rim locks is better but I'm thinking tubliss still.
