I recently bought a 1993 Beta Synt that I am dying to ride but haven't had a lot of time to sort out. I have just started to try to get it going but I am a bit lost on it. There are so many threads on so many forums about air cooled, twin shock, electric and modern trials bikes but this era and brand doesn't seem to get much love. From what I can tell, the Synt (short for synthesis) is the steel framed version of the ZERO. The bike hasn't been ridden since about 2012 but it is complete. First of all, is there a centralized specialist in these bikes who has parts, knowledge and advice? Second, can any of you answer my questions or posit advice particularly regarding my observations? I don't have a lot of experience with 2 strokes, especially modern ones. I know almost nothing at all about trials or trials bikes. I started the bike a couple of weeks ago and ran it for less than a minute. It has a left-side kick, the lever is very high, very short and an absolute mother to kick. Compression is good The carburetor is a Mikuni. It is more like my 1970s Hondas than my 2001 KTM or even my old '85 Tri-Z 250 three wheeler. It does not have a choke but it has a lever that does something. I think it might make it more rich. I don't know if it is to be used when starting or for certain trials activities. Does anyone know what this is for? The transmission has a stuck clutch. I began to investigate and noticed through the looking glass that the oil inside appears to be milky. I was able to break the clutch loose but it seizes again if it sits at all. I plan to drain it this weekend and try to get the clutch cover off. I was going to refill with ATF since it has detergents. Is this a good idea? What would be better? The coolant is missing. I think it may explain the water in the transmission. How would it get there? One hose clamp was loose when I got it as if someone was trying to sort it out. The rear brake has no fluid. It has a master and slave cylinder but there does not appear to be any kind of reservoir. Where do I put the fluid? I assume it bleeds at the slave like any other brake system.
