Here's the 03 that I just sold. On the market for an 08+



Someone sell me your 450\530. Let me take it off your hands, we all now how much trouble these things can be

I was trying to hold off on posting a picture until I had a better one, like actually riding it But the weather has been crappy and all I have done is dial the bike in, witch is half the fun for me!
It had all the usual issues others have had with 530, hard starting, over heating and everything else. Put a JD jet kit in, 09 cam, a fan kit with a low temp thermo switch (180deg I think) and a selectable map switch. Once sorted the bike has been to much fun ride and no other issues have come up! And to make the bike even more versatile a just put a super moto setup on it

Nice setup. Do you have to change out your front caliper with the super moto setup or it that the stock one?

Jgreer, I have to change the front caliper and bleed it when swapping from the dirt to sumo setup. Doesn't take very long, maybe 20-30 min for the front. I originally planned on using a stock front rotor for the sumo but a great deal on this used setup came around. Overall the Beringer front brakes are great but I'm still not sold on them and may change to a stock front rotor just to make swapping setups even easier...

I have three of these bikes, all 2005's. The two I'm currently riding are pretty much identical. They are set up for riding Mexico/Baja.





22mm Emig clamps, dampers & handguards
Excel A60 front wheels, double signature Excel rear wheels
Bruce's Suspension Terrain Tamer forks, revalved & resprung shock
Acerbis 6.6 gallon tank
14/48 Renthal Twinring or Ironman sprox, Regina chain
533cc motors, one bike is 12.5:1, the other is 11.5:1
ICW modified Fluidyne radiators
Skaggs oil coolers

I've put 100 hours on the high compression motor in the last six weeks, and it runs fine of Mexican fuel.

The last one is an ex-Dakar Rallye bike, but I'm not done building it yet.

What did you do to your motor to get it to 533cc? Is that a 540 kit i.e bored? What sort of power diferential did you notice?
