I'm running an MT43 with my stock chain

er.. mine's an XCW if that makes a difference?

...an MT43 does not fit on a TTR225 without a longer chain though... found that out when I stuck one on Cheryl's bike.

You have a XCW. 13/50
He has a exc and I believe he said 14/50 didn't he?

I have an EXC with 14/48 and a mt-43 trials tire. It is close and am going to add a link or get another chain.

Guys I just bought a 2013, 500 and I need to know the size of the two lower clamp bolts that go into the triple clamps. Long story short I shipped them to someone by accident. Thanks

speaking of...did he actually "accidentally unscrew" his oil cap with his boot? because it getting broken off by something seems a lot more plausible...

Plastic Oil Filler Cap

The new design can be accidentally loosened with your boot. The guys around here just trim the ears back and use pliers (or their KTM supplied beer cap opener) to remove it. End of problem.

I keep my beer cap opener / 13mm wrench in my tool pouch. No telling when you might encounter a beer running wild out there in the woods.

Rare, but it happens. I'm getting a new '13 500 next week. I may just buy some 5/16th I high pressure line from my local auto parts and install it along with my Golan filter I'm getting via Amazon. Just be done with it and not worry. If you are seriously worried about a rupture you can 1) run the bike and see if you have one and then deal with it or 2) just take care of it ahead of time assuming that the probability is high enough to warrant the trouble of purchasing line and installing it. End of discussion.

Stu wish it was that easy,I don't know if your familiar with the line as it takes a tight radious sweep in a small distance and S turns in short distance to the QR filter coupling,and without being a preformed hose you could risk line kinking and causing real damage to the fuel pump/FI etc and poor performance too boot,hope you prove me wrong and it's that easy!please keep me informed of your findings? I'm certainly looking into easy fix as well.In my local riding area this something you want to avoid,as it could lead to long and miserable walk or tow,or the old hell ride!

Line Kinking

You do have a valid point worth considering. If you have enough line the kink is not a factor and I would have that. If you have enough line you will have to have some way to restrict the line so it does not get caught by bushes. I will just relocate it with nylon ties.

Had a 250SXf do the unscrew deal from my boot too, safety wire it! Also notifies you someone's been in there.
