Contact your Beta Dealer, he/she should be able to get it through the US Distributer.

Well this is a great thread....good to see others have the high opinion of Beta as myself.

I bought a 525RR bike, and then found at my age, I just don't flex enough to get on/off that high seat...Too bad as I put the large tank, hand guards, steering dampener, radiator guards, and cooling fan...the bike feels great riding it, but getting on-off I look like a monkey doing you know what.

So if anybody is interested in a basically new Beta, this thing is just sitting in the garage for the past 2 years. PM me. I live outside of Seattle WA.

Can't have enough Beta's

here's pics of me and my 470 (400 big bore) and my 05 525 still going strong.








Great bikes, nothing major has gone wrong besides rider error . make sure you protect those radiators and grease those lower linkage bushings.
only weird thing was that the needle jet (yes needle jet not needle) wore out on the 525 giving it a full on rich jetting. took a while to figure that out.


they handle great and have giving me great results and never let me down in a race.

Lower the suspension an inch or 2 or trim the seat just a little. The seat trim is the cost of staples and you will still be out there. I am older and stiffer too but it's better to use it or lose it!!!!! ..and on such a great bike!! just an inch of foam chopped off can make a world of difference.

You ought to to talk to kenaroo . He has a 400 and a 525 so you can ask him what works best and mods etc. For me the 525 is great. Easy to ride and light for a 4 stroke. I haven't ridden for too long. ..(couple months).had a cold and obligations. I am jonesing. Hopefully I can ride this weekend. Good luck picking your ride!!!!
