Default Any Beta snow bikers on here?

I have a 2017 500 RR-S and am thinking hard on the DTS 129 as I have a dealer where I bought my bike from, Naults Manchester, that sells the kits, and want to get a kit before the snow flies, install it and enjoy the first winter with a snowbike.

My bike is e-start, FI, has a great 200W output, already has a Baja Designs squadron pro headlight, and is just the DTS 129 and some heated bars away from being ready for the winter.

I wonder if there are any other Beta owners on here?

This past winter I wanted a dual sport as the wife said I could get a motorcycle-ha! I wanted a dual sport to commute the 5 one-way miles to work, but to really ride the trails when I could and thankfully, I have been able to ride quite a bit this past spring, summer and fall and once the winter comes, my brother in law has a place in VT where we have permission to ride a LOT of land and where a snowbike would be perfect.

$4,800 for the kit. I saw some heated handlebars that look like they will be worth the money, and as I'll read, and read, and read, about all the mods/tips and tricks that you have all shared, I know this site is going to be my #1.

better make sure they have the adapter kit for the betas. I am really lusting after a 17-18 390rr 4 stroke, for woods riding. I don't think many snowbike mfgrs have mount kits for the beta brand but, I could be mistaken. Ski

waiting for annual Christmas trip

I have ridden with some betas... I know they have said without putting a new exhaust they are really plugged up and almost sluggish feeling...

That is interesting.

Thankfully, the very last concern about converting my bike is power.

At least my FI'd 478cc'd 2017 bike runs hard. It has more power than I ever need on the trails. At least on my bike there is nothing holding up the power and with a quick turn G2 throttle and Jimmy Twister I get all the bark and all the bite, all the time.

I had come from a 1985 then a 1995 CR500R and the 500 RR-S does not have me missing any of the power I was used to from either of those two bikes.

Any Ragrets? Nope, not a one.

I'll be the only Beta snowbike rider on here, for now. I can imagine that until there is snow all over, not many are on the board, yet.

I'll be getting happy when I order the kit and then I get all 160 lbs of it home and start taking the bike down to get it all installed.

I am glad that it is still dirtbike season though, the happiest/best of the seasons. I'm psyched to be at the brother in law's where I'll get to ride some dirt tomorrow and maybe on Sunday and with fantastic weather.

My wife ran a 17 beta 300 with the Camso and its a great bike.

Outclimbs the YZ500f w/yeti and keeps up most of the time with a cr500.

Its main problem is its heavy, other than that Beta makes an amazing cycle.

Now if the a%%hat that stole it out of my garage last weekend would return it....

Got a buddy that rides a Beta 500 and loves it. He has have a few problems but idk that it was the bikes fault. Far as power i felt it lacked some power compared to my moded 450 and carbureted bike. (beta was stock). Saw up up above about new exhaust helping. Also im sure there are Tunes out there for betas that would help too. The Betas look sweet. Simple and fairly light weight. I would buy one if i have 10k lol
