Ive been mainly riding the 200 lately,building/fixing trails,then I rode the Triumph 1200 to the coast and strafed apexes last weekend,then got a ticket coming home.

I did get out with Bob and friends the other day on the 530 for a blast on local fireroads and some trails,snow is limiting factor.

Advice needed

On a 2010 530 EXC I installed Samco hoses where the old radiator hoses had gone, did the Evan prep and finally the Evans NPG rad fluid. I added the external fan as well.

All seem to fit well. Run the bike at idle till hot, however, and a few drops of evens comes out the top joint, runs down and steams off the motor. Thought I over filled Evans, but have check that, along with the top hose seal and don't see anything wrong. Any ideas? Thanks!

Find where its leaking and make it stop leaking,if its filled right to the top of the radiator inside then it will puke water out the overflow until the level is right.

New(Old) graphics

I finally installed the graphics kit that came with my 2009 530 as part of the R2R kit. I suspect they will peel off in a few months and I will be back to scratched plastic. Upgraded to the "SixDays" shrouds as well. Graphics for the shrouds are with the Clockworks tank. Need to get the front number plate sticker on yet but that will be another day since I need to cut out for the headlight.




(night photo with phone)

Got the Seat Concepts cover and foam installed today. No picture but everyone knows what they look like. Gripper/carbon/orange stitching. Did a pretty decent job with the hand stapler, the rear was the hardest part and is not perfectly smooth.

Tuff Turn signals

http://www.extremedualsport.com/Products/TuffLites/tabid/88/Default.aspx

My S-I-L just installed these lights on his WR250R and they seem to be a really sturdy light and really bright. Farther apart than my flush mount ones so you can avoid being stopped by the authorities because of too small turn signals and I think it would be difficult to break them. Very flexible.

This is not an advertisement just a recommendation after seeing them and bending them.

Here is a picture of my floppy fender. I don't know what it could be. Any ideas? I'm barely pushing it down in this picture. When riding on smooth ground or the street I can hear it flopping all over the place.

I took all that under fender OEM stuff off mine and chucked it,it insisted on folding down off jumps/bumps and jamming the lic plate into the tire,both OEM turn signals exploded from the same thing.

I put on an acerbis X-LED underfender LED tailight/lic plate holder.
It is tiny,looks like its built for a trials bike but its working.
I also found an old Acerbis plastic underfender stiffener piece which cuts down on flop some,evidently they dont make them anymore but an aluminum strap underneath can work as well. I trimmed/ rounded my lic plate down to as small as I can get it and still be a lic plate,then pop riveted and 3M glued it to a piece of plastic backing so it doesnt crack apart.

If you ride on the street alot this probably isnt the settup you want,my 530 is mainly a dirtbike.

(after looking closer at what is under your fender,it doesnt look stock and mainly needs a stiffener put in as is,stock piece bolts to underneath of subframe,yours is only held up by luck and the fender)

The euro style fender uses those two bolts that hold the rear fender to the subframe. I think that gives it extra rigidity since it's basically a (plastic) extension of the subframe, with some decent ribbing for strength. It looks like the way your piece bolts up that there is no connection between the subframe and the plate holder, thus your flopping problem. Stick a bar of metal under there to connect the the under-fender to the subframe somehow.

You just need to replace that Baja Designs licence plate mount with the euro KTM mount. That will solve all your floppy fender problems.

So this is the answer?

Is it LED or bulb?
