The hose from the petcock (tank) to the carb was long enough to have an slight upward curl in it (and was tucked under the frame), hence this was inhibiting fuel flow to the carb - as this is gravity dependant !
I changed the angle/path the hose takes to the carb, so that there is only a slight upward path (near flat), and the majority of it is now a downward slope to the carb's fuel input, with the carb fuel input now pointing straight upwards.
Gravity is now doin its thing, and she didnt stall once today !

Thanks all !

Bike needs nothing (seriously). I added a bar riser, some hand guards, and a GL Mohavi bag, and thats it !

You might adjust those handguards to a level/ground position. If you hit anything like they are now they will have no strength and rotate . Not good. They actually protect nothing as they are now.

The pic/angle may exaggerate it some, but they are protecting the levers, and the master cylinders (As I ride standing, hence the levers are angled downward). Tested by repeated dropping . They're tight enough that they wont spin. Straightening them out simply means broken levers when she goes down, As I've found that most handguards offer only minimal protection, in that a serious get off will result in bent bars, or worse.

Thanks.

Hello all,

New owner of a 2009 525 RR here. The bike has around 1600 miles on it, anything specific I should check? Was the bike well greased from the factory or should I tear her apart and grease everything? I will be checking the valve clearance, changing oil/filters also.

Is there anything to be gained by going to a JD Jet kit versus stock?

Also, I've been looking for new plastics for the thing but cannot find any, only graphic kits. Does American Beta carry 09 plastics?

Thanks all! I will have pics soon!

2011 Beta 450 RR

Had my first ride today on my new to me 2011 Beta 450 RR Not many complaints here. The Rekluse really makes a huge difference.
