Have Paul add the LED turn signals to the package - THE BEST!!!

Done and NEVER an issue with the cheapass OEM brake housing and floppy POS signals again:

If the turn signals are integrated into the taillight what is the purpose of the external signals?

They are not in the tail light. The TL functions as normal. Man, this is THE BEST solution, bar none. Tough SOB, the only way to go IMO.

Then you get a twist-a-plate from Hodakaguy so you can pivot the license plate. No more smacking the plate as you get on the bike.

To quote myself, the KTM talk link is the same guy as the ebay link. The KTMtalk one I provided is for the 08-11 bikes (yes, your 2010). I would recommend sending him a message and tell him what you want or need, and he'll do it. He does ones for the RFS up to the current models.

I'd go w/ the XC-W tail light:



The one above has too many spaces for mud and crud to accumulate. The XC-W one costs the same and has a better light output.

I agree. I have this one as well. I think we were trying to save the guy $10 It's also funny because some just don't want to do the work, and I bite almost every time. The info on the Euro plate holder vs universal ill-fitting shite has been discussed 100 times in this thread alone.

The euro plate holder makes my fender stiff.

I ain't got no stinkin' plate! I have only ridden my bike once since a race at the end of January, and now the ice is melting fast. I have been busy prepping for work stuff, but now I'm done, so I may as well get all my lights and summer wheels back on. It's 16C today (60 for you yanks).

camshaft replace on 2008 excr

Hi,
since I bought my 530 exc in 2008 I've had hard time estarting it or kickstarting it. I was told that it was normal but I've read many threads describing the same problem I have and pointing to defective camshaft.

I found that 2008 camshaft #78036010233 has been replaced in 2009 with #78636010033 and then in 2011 with #81736010133.
Is it a good idea to replace camshaft ?
Does it work?
If so, do I put the newer version (2011 camshaft) or do I have to stick with 2009 camshaft ?

Any advice welcome

thanks

A buddy of mine just replaced his cam for the exact same reasons. He said it made all the difference. Starts up super easy now.
