2018 Beta Xtrainer Problem (250 miles +/-).
Hey! I'm a new owner of a 2018 Beta Xtrainer (250 miles +/-). I'm having a few issues and was wondering if anyone here could give me some insight. I talked to a dealer and he thought I was full of shit (maybe b/c I'm a lady?).
So here's the scoop – I recently got back from a trip to AZ with the bike. When we unloaded it in the morning after getting back, there was a large puddle of coolant under the bike. There were no obvious signs of overheating on the last ride with it.
Upon further inspection before washing it, I found there to be a bit of coolant kind of everywhere. See pics. There was some coming out of the head (dealer DEF didn't believe me on this one) and near and around the water pump. Checking the coolant levels proved to be a bit scary b/c even with the bike tipped over, couldn't see any coolant in the radiator. When taking the radiator cap off, there was quite a bit of pressure. I've read that there should not really be any pressure on a cold bike. So..
I did a little reading online and it sounds like one issue could be that the two head o-rings fail (dealer said this is a hoax). When the o-rings fail, it leads to wrongful pressurization and a few other symptoms that seem to be similar to what I'm seeing.
Does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone else had this issue?
Also, what coolant are you running?
I will probably flush the system since I've already lost so much and put in something other than the Motul Motocool Expert.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would love to get this fixed so I can get back out and riding!
One more question – where is the best place to order Beta parts online from?
