    Default 2015 Beta 300RR race edition

    I am buying this bike from a friend who is no longer riding it and has gone to the dark side...He bought a Side by side. This will be a back up and loaner bike for me. I have some friends that want to try dirt riding as well as a son in law who wants to give it a try. He put Ohlins forks and a Fox Podium rear shock. Unfortunately he is 100 lbs heavier than me. So i plan to put the stock suspension back on the bike. I have not seen a lot of information on the stock Marzzochi forks. Were these forks any good. he claimed he could not keep forkseals from leaking and bought the Ohlins. It does come with the stock springs for the Ohlins but i plan to possibly sell them to recoupe some of the price of the bike. So what is the thoughts on the Marzzochi forks.
    Thanks, Rethy

    The stock forks are ok. And would be fine for what you have in mind. If you can get a set dirt cheap and sell the Ohlins for a good price ok. I'd keep the Ohlins though. Same for the shock too. But if your selling the shock, shoot me a PM please.

    Two of my friends have this exact bike. No problems with the zoke forks. Keep the ohlins. There is a reason it's been replaced. Other than vibrating like a 3 legged washing machine on the spin cycle it seems to be a reliable bike.

    Had a 15 RR 300 and, currently own a 17 RR300 - like them both very much. I have, and ride, quite a few of big bore vintage bikes and so when it comes to vibrations ó to me modern bikes feel Cadillacís and Electra Glides in comparison.

    2015 is a very nice bike, love the motor on the 2015. Stock forks always felt stiff much like the front tire being over inflated. Having the Ohlins should make that bike a superb machine.
