Thanks for answer.
First of all because I have already fit on bike this radiator fan and guard.
Second because I would like making change tank between racetrack training and longer trip without any problems and additional things except just remove seat.
This is reason why I want leave or change radiator guard.

Whitch of the radiator guards match the KTM 13l tank and KTM radiator fan with?
Do you have some experience in this topic?
I have the 530, with Flatland radiator guards that had the cross brace modified to fit the fan, and also have the Acerbis 3.4 which goes right on with this setup and the also have the Acerbis 6.3 which is supposed to fit the same.
Acerbis supplies two rubber bumper/stops that go where the radiator shrouds would normally connect at the bottom of the radiator, for the shroud part of the tank to rest on. These rubbers will not mount on the radiator with the guards on. I am looking for a way to connect them or possibly use a smaller part to make the bumper/stop. The tank is very stable mounted this way.

Question for Neduro

Ned

I have an '08 530 that James SuperPlush Siddal did a number on the forks and shock. I still feel like my set up is still too stiff for the type of ROCKY desert riding I do. Before I start to try adjustments from how James has me set up I thought about getting your suspension eBook. How many pages is the book?

Thanks
BR

The book is 30 pages long- I think you'll find it has a lot of data packed in.

Without having any idea what your settings are, I suspect that opening rebound as well as compression a few clicks might help you get a more cush ride, especially in the fork excessive rebound control mimics excessive compression as the midvalve packs up.

Already placed an order on bulletproof guard.
The previous motorcycle was equipped in Flatland.
And I wanted to try something different:)
As already receive the delivery I will try to do a few photographs how looks like it together with 13l tank and fan.

Installed my Clockworks 3.4 gal tank tonight. Quality and fit are top notch! I really debated between this and the 3.4 gal Acerbis tank.....I finally decided to go with the clockworks based on it carrying it's fuel lower on the bike...and using the stock shrouds (personal preference on looks). Just took a few minutes to install. Feels just like the stock tank, just as narrow, fit's great with the Fan ect.

NOTE: This tank uses the old style KTM bolts that are made to go into plastic, the type that look like a wood screw. The 530's now come with a brass insert pressed into the tank where the shrouds bolt up and use a different bolt....sooooo your factory 530 hardware won't work on this tank. If you ask Clockworks when you place your order they will include a set of 10 proper bolts at no extra charge, Nice

Here's a couple pics...

Tank looks great

From the pictures, it looks deceivingly small - any ergonomic differences? Is it just taller?

How much $$ ?

Yep just holds more fuel lower in the frame. No taller than the stock tank, ergo wise it feels just like a stock tank. The stock tank really should have been shaped like this one!

they are $225, you re-use your petcock from your old tank.

Here's the link: http://www.shop.clockworkktm.com/pro...7&categoryId=2

Nice looking part!

First I've seen that vendor. I've given up on Clarke and IMS after loads of leaky tanks, the only brand I've found I trust is Acerbis. If the Clockworks stuff holds up, it looks like a great design to me. I'd like one of those for my 2 stroke.

From what I've read on other forums people are having real good luck with the clockworks tanks...another reason I chose this one. I have the large Acerbis for desert rides...this one will be my everything else tank.

Will the clockworks tank work with the HT oil cooler?

I'm running 14/50 for general use, which offers a low enough first for anything, and a nice cruise. I also tried 14/52 and did not like it- I can't exactly explain, since I didn't need more on top, but it seemed like 2nd wasn't quite as useful for singletrack.

In a few weeks I'm headed to Mexico, and debating gearing up, although I plan on riding a lot of technical stuff down there. Would go 14/48 or 14/46... will post how that works.
