thats what its for, however i've binned the quick disconnect as some have complained of the o-rings getting nicked and leaking. i figured one less thing to go wrong so removed it from my fuel line and replaced it with golan mini in addition to the filter in the tank and fuel sock. the little tiny filters seem very easy to get blocked up and hoping the larger surface area of the filter sock and golan will keep it clean and run enough fuel without blocking up once it traps a few particles.

agreed..

I have dinged two o rings being very careful on the quick disconnect. It appears they are either very soft or very brittle? I messed mine up once putting the dirt cover on doing a clean up. It is nice to have it though. Makes the whole take down of the bike go quick and i am one of the ones that happen to like the Oetiker clamps (never had a failure).

Yep, the first time I used the QD, the o-ring for the male dirt-blocking plug split when I removed it. I need to look up one of Bengt Phorks posts where he listed the best bulk purchase option.

stock chain?

Switching to 14/48 gearing, were you guys able to use the stock chain? Or did you have to buy new/modify stock

Thanks

But, you do have to flip the axle adjustment blocks for the extra room or the back tire will be too close to mud flap, if it even fits.

So what is the best pipe guard to get? I want to get a full coverage model that covers as much of the stock head pipe as possible so I don't melt my expensive gear or sensitive skin so easily. Most of my older stuff has melt marks in it already from my KLX and its Big Gun headpipe.

I have prowled thru this thread but it is so hard to sort out who has what. My 500 EXC is on its way to the dealer so I am trying to get the goodies for it before it arrives.

Thanks for your input!

I have a Wings muffler on my 530 and i can lay a hand on it while its running with no burning, even after riding for some time. The stocker and the r2r FMF got pretty warm.

I dont see it on their website but guess its something they put together for you ?

Whats the difference between your $200 LED setup from ADVmonster and the more expensive BD plugnplay kit ?
The kit was for a KTM 500 EXC and it was offered on his website. I just checked and saw it wasn't listed anymore. The best thing to do is contact him and see if he will make one up for you.
Baja Designs gives you the headlight.
ADVmonster gives you the headlight, adjustable dimmer and a plug and play wiring harness that uses the OEM switch.

I wonder if he didn't have his costs figured out correctly when he started selling the kit, and finally realized he was sending money out the door with each sale!
Think I'll give him a call too.

Thx for the info, I'll contact the vendor.

Looking at the respective website specs, (advmonster and BD) they both use four Cree XM-L T6 LEDs, and claim 3600 lumens, but have different housings

Interesting that the BD draws 42watts and the ADVmonster only 28w, which suggests some difference.

Check out the pipe guard and skid plate from flatland racing. Very nice build, installs well in minutes.
