I have put 27 hours on my 500. Purchased with 20 on it.
The one time I checked fuel mileage, I was riding near Sargents, CO. Mix of open 2 track to some gnarly single track on the CDT trail. Right at 50mpg.

I have added:
BRP rubber mounted sub mount. This bike has a noticeable vibration at lower rpm, compared to the 530. I assume this is due to a lighter counter balance.

BRP chain guide yet to be installed.

Dirt tricks 52T rear.

Acerbis 3.2 gallon. I am surprised this re-used the stock shrouds.

White front fender. Looks better to me than the orange.

Black rims. That was a high priority on my end.

Bib Mousse, Michelin since that is what I have laying around. Once these wear out, I will order the Mefos.

2nd ride earlier this fall.


In the shop today.






This winter I plan to make it more long distance oriented.
Taller gearing. around 14/45. This motor has the guts to make this work.
Rally Moto Kit frames are cut and I am trying to get the time to fit them on.
