They look like a sweet bike mate.

Big tank...8 litres on a 300 2T is ridiculous.
Pipe guard
Suspension set-up

10 litre tank and Name-brand suspension would make them a front runner IMO.

Very serious about one myself. The only issue i have with them is the pathetic 8 litre tank. I sent an email to Beta Australia on the issue and they sent me a pic of a 12.2 l tank they are developing that uses the stock shrouds.

Now if i can convince the better half to sell some of her bloody orses...

Was speaking to matt from Raceline yesterday and he indicated the ims (at least I think it was ims) was close to releasing an 11.5litre tank...

Thanks for all the ideas I agree a bigger tank would be ideal. Koops46 when I picked mine up there was a race 300 delivered at the same time they look awesome.

First two will be done by any knowledgable dealer, but here's what comes to mind:
1. Loctite all of the front guard bolts and the sidestand pivot bolt.
2. Make sure BOTH radiators are full out of the box.
3. Some sort of corrosion inhibitor spray on the plugs behind the headlight shroud if you're a fan of the pressure washer.
4. Ditch the stock tyres, they're horrible despite appearing to be pretty good. Run LOW pressure in the rear if you insist on sticking with the stocker.
5. Gearing can be taller if you do lots of transports.
6. Be careful when re-installing the air filter - it's possible to have it not seated properly on the back edge. When it's wrong it still seems sort of alright - when its right it's obviously right.
7. Take some time to fiddle with the clickers, esp on the fork. It's entirely rideable straight out of the box, but there's worthwhile gains to be had with clickers (I wound in slightly more rebound and it made a big difference).

Let 'er rip!
Everything from an XL175 to a Beta 300 to a Hodaka Wombt to a KX500.
They're all fun.
