I will check the plug tonight.. good idea.. I had it smoke like this once last fall on a long climb. Got home and opened the muffler and it was exceptionally clean like yours...

Talked to Adrian yesterday and he said they generally don't re-jet the Evo. Hate to think the Evo just doesn't have the cooling capacity to be used on hard trail riding.

I run a Lectron carburetor on my husky 2t. Its a metering carb and the predecessor of the smart carb. It is a 'set it and forget it' deal. The atomization is unreal and very simular to FI.
When mentioning this upgrade on the beta I was snickered at and told I didn't need it.
Its the preferred mod over the pwk or tmxx on the Italian Husqvarna 2t. My fuel milage shot thru the roof!

All well now. Beta sent the clutch basket along w/ flywheel. I didn't change the flywheel or Idler gear and the same problem occurred. Then Beta sent the same setup and Stu sent the Idler gear and bearing. That seems to have fixed it. I have 15 mi. on it and have started maybe 10 times since fix.

What kind of jetting are you guys using and at what altitude?
I currently have:

MJ 125
Pilot 48

Mostly at around 5,000 feet but have run this same jetting all the way up to 8,000.

Going to be riding at around 3,000 in few weeks and probably need to fatten it up, but to what?

It runs good but I do think it is too rich judging on the splooge that was in the silencer. I'm thinking that it could run "better" if I was willing to work with this.
What do you think I should be running around here? I'm ordering a range tomorrow for both TX and mountains of NM.

I would try a 120 for San Ysidro, maybe a 115 or 118 for Sipapu, Did the 125 come with the bike? If so a 118main and a 50 pilot might be a combo to try for home.
By the way that was the land owners LOGO. I`m not just crazy.

Is the new Beta hugely different from my Rev3? I have 30 pilot, 125 main and it seems to run really well (in the back yard anyway) and almost no spooge out the back.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Bill at Balance Trials has me all straightened out.

115 or 118 and 52 around here.

125 and 50 at lower than 4,000.

For Sipapu and high elevations, just add a turn out to the fuel screw.

It is difficult to get your head around the fact that you have to fatten the pilot at altitude, but with trials bikes, you do!

Stick with the 3.5 slide here and go with a 4.0 only when close to sea level.
