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.
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.
