The prices sure are coming way down. I felt pretty good about the $3900 I spent. Worth every penny, BTW.

Get a sub-mount for the Dampner and that will raise your bars 25mm I believe. Beyond that there are spacers or different bends but 25mm is a lot.

I like Enduro Engineering for just about everything.
Don't forget the clutch slave protector, shark fin and radiator guards (I used KTM's)

Oh, and Mobil 1 20-50W from WallyWorld, $22.00 for the 5 quart jug.
Rick, No. I caught myself......... LOL....

Thanks for the help.

Take care Brother, Eric.

I got about 200 more miles out of a XCMH vs a scorpion pro front tire on a DRz. 1400 miles 50/50 and it was toast. They are doth more dirt worthy than a D606 but the pavement eats them.

Thanks

As far as a DOT tire, I run the D606 and get great traction and wear from it. It is a compromise tire. Not the BEST in the dirt, and not the BEST on the pavement, but it is pretty darn good everywhere.

I like it too. Not as "washy" as the others. Especially as heavy as the big thumpers can get. Wears well too. I put over 400 HARD Colorado DS miles on mine with very little wear.

Hey does anyone have a Joe Racer oil cooler on their RFS bike? If so, do you have a picture of what's behind the oil filter cap that the feed/return lines come out of? I'm trying to figure out if the oil cooler will work on a 250 xcfw.. The parts list shows that the cap is the same for both the 250 and the 450/525, but the filters are different.. My guess is that they're the same diameter but different lengths.. So just trying to figure out if there are just hoses on the back of the replacement cap that can be trimmed to suit, or if there are any hard parts back there that are machined to length.

Not the best choice for mud, but it also depends on the type of mud. If it's sticky mud, or any type of mud that is really deep, then I don't like trials tires. However, sloppy mud (that cleans fairly easily) that isn't super deep is ok.

My experience is the same with sand. Trials tires are no good as the sand gets deep and very soft. However, the tires work well if you're talking about a few inches of sand on top of hard pack.

It's a spring pin... use a dowel punch to push it out, then back in after the part swap. A nail may work in a pinch

Yup. Leave the bolt in at first. Drive it thru passed the clamp. But not all the way out. That way you dont lose it

How cheap do you think I could find a decent (engine is in good working order, maybe a couple actual wrecks, beat up plastics. Basically as long as the engine works well and has everything mechanically working) ktm525exc. Early model nothing new. Only thing I would really want is a dualsport kit already on it.

How cheap do you think I could find one like that? I know they have been out a while but I dont know what the depreciation rate would be for something other than a jap bike.

Saw a 2003 street titled 525 with a new topend and a full Akra system listed for $3400 on Craigslist last week.
