They haven't released any 200 version of the Ranger, I think they'll be released next year though. When I talked to the GasGas representative earlier this year, he thought that the 200 would be too weak in the bottom and you had to really rev it to make it go. Never tried the Beta 200, but I'd say the 200 version of the Ranger would be a bit different than the Beta in terms of engine characteristics.

Like Moto7man, you probably wont be able to ride the 200 the same as the 300.

Got my hands on it mid june, so it was delayed by a month basically.
Hi Loveen, I've just bought an EC Ranger too and I'm having a really bad time with it. Out of the box it seems really hesitant to go over 55 mph, and if you level off the throttle at any speed it seems to pulse a little (fast-slower-faster e.t.c...). I need to get it back to my dealer but he's a few hours away, so before I do I wanted to check with you that the Ranger should just run OK slow to fast.

Your jetting needs setting up. As the engine is a high performance 2 stroke, it's impossible for the factory to send them out to suit all altitudes/climates. It seems all the EC and Rangers leave the factory with very rich jetting, hence the problem you're having.

I wish GasGas (and other manufacturers) sent their bikes out with a jetting kit, a selection of pilots, mains and needles, that would be nice.

Ask your dealer if he's willing to sell you jets/needles at trade price or provide you with them on a trial basis and return what you don't need.

It's well worth spending a little time and effort getting the jetting dialed in, it will transform your bike.

I see from the spec the Ranger uses a 36mm Keihin as opposed the 38mm on the EC so I assume the jetting will be slightly different.

All the best, Dave.

Yep, excatly as you mentioned. I mostly notice it at lower RPMs, it doesn't really want to run clean - but when you give it some throttle it runs great. I have no problem reaching 65-70 mph. I will also be looking for a new jet. Had a friend with a EC250 with same issues, so it's definetly a jetting issue.
