+1. I was a little bummed, but it does look decent with the black spokes on silver rims.

i really like the orange headlight masks found on the 530s, the part #s seem to be different between those and the new 500s though.
does anyone know where to get an orange one for the 500 or if one from a 530 will work? I just don't see them changing much from the 530 to the 500.

EDIT: ok i see now...the different part numbers I was seeing were just the different color codes (duh! ) and the old masks are the same as the new white ones.
if anyone else was wondering the same, the part numbers are:

7800800100028 - white
7800800100030 - black
7800800100004 - orange

fuel line broke on new 500 exc, pin hole leak started spraying gasoline, got a boot full

thanks for the fix here, still this should be embarrassing for KTM for them to something proactive

luckily was only on a trail ride and had the 350 exc at the truck

I'm on my 3rd one with 2.8hrs on the bike, completely unacceptable considering where I will be taking this bike in the future. I made a new one from fuel-injector hose from my local auto parts store and have large looping bends in so as not to kink the hose. I will carry a spare with me.

So, after putting the Acerbis 5.3 gallon tank on, I've noticed that the bike gets up to the 220* temp much faster.

I've ordered a radiator fan kit and I'll get it installed on the left radiator

two fans running, with a switch to engage when I want them to engage. Having the TrailTech gauge lets me know the temp at any given time.....

I'll have a write up when i'm done.


edit: Arrggghhh, darned fan is way too big, can't fit it on the left side behind the radiator. Need to come up with something else.

To stop the fuel line from kinking stick a 1/4 inch diameter spring inside the fuel line.

For this FF that could be the perfect size.

Anyone?

I have the clockwork tank and have had it on for about 1000 miles and have had no issues. I went with the clockwork tank so I could still use my shrouds and graphics kits, I still get the range I wanted 160-170 mpt depending on terrain I can get into the 200 range with a couple primus bottles straped to bike with wolfman holders.

I like the switch - after riding her good n' hard and a few tire changes, black rims don't look so nice.

Those are the Shinko 705's, they work great on the road and very good offroad (firebreaks,gravel roads) I've actually done some hill climbs that I did not think I was gonna make, but wanted to see what the tires could do and they pulled me up. Of course steep down hills are another story but capable with both feet out and some tricky brake work. The tires suprised me offroad, of course you cant bang berms and stuff but they work well for summer riding the streets and national forest routes. and the price is great, under $150.00 for a set. We just got our first rain so the knobbies are gonna be on here as soon as I get my bike back

That's a sharp set up and perhaps the best tire combo for an extra set that I have seen. I have a pure street set on my extra wheels. Fun but not as dirt road friendly as yours.
Any custom holes in your fork protectors yet? My front is so wide I go without .



Stiff D - love the Jager stickers. Reminds me of this... ha


Not a big sticker guy (as you can see by my bike) so have never seen the Jager set - looks good!
