Thank You for your help!

The secondary air system (sas) comes out next to the exhaust and is not part of the charcosl canister system. I plugged mine with a cork. I desmoggified and went with the magic mod rather than the euromap. Only one half day so far but the bottom is much better. I'll give a better review after more seat time when I'm done riding waves in Costa Rica.

Yep, my bad: http://www.ktm.com/us/enduro/350excfusa/technical-details.html

That gearing is too high for my liking.....might want to consider dropping to a 13 counter sprocket (14/48 equivalent)....still a tad high but usable with the stock chain....could even throw on ~$30 steel 46 or 47 rear......stock chain should allow a one or two tooth bump in the rear with swap to 13 up front....

I think you csn go 14/48 with stock chain.

I dont enjoy going 62 mph+ on this bike in stock gearing (14/45). It is super happy cruising at 55. Anything more than 60 is really making the engine work too hard. I've tried with little wind resistance to reach 70 mph and its just not happening, 68 is where its done with that gearing, and it litterally feels like 6500+ revs...not where you want to "cruise". Hope that helps anyone that really wants to be able to blast down the interstate (buy a GS if that is the case)

I ended up with 13/50. Like it for the tighter conditions I ride in. Still goes pretty good up top. I really don't ride much road. Only to connect to certain trails.

I am not doubting you, but these numbers just do not sound right. Even Cycle World stated that the bike is capable of 90+ MPH. With stock gearing, I would hope that the 350 would get along quite easily at 60-65 mph, and reach 70 MPH relatively easily.
I guess that I will find out when I pick my bike up...

The bike can run high rpm's. It can run up to 12,000, so don't be afraid to run it out some more.

When I test road the 350 I took it up to 60+ and it seemed to cruse there great not working that hard?

I think im going to put on the 13 in the fromt and give it a try.

This fourm is a lot of help!

Needless to say, sustained highway speeds of ~60mph are no sweat and that's where I usually stay on the highway sections between trails to avoid any issues.....short spurts of 70+ are generally reserved for open/off-road stretches....with the occasional 80+ spurt

Snapshot of my GPS after riding near my place in Bullhead City a few weeks ago......300+ miles/80+ max speed

Hey Crawdaddy,

Any Chance you could post some photos of your top clamp/computer mount/ headlight mask area? I have installed my HDB clamp and damper mount and the idiot lights and Speedo are invisible behind them. I was thinking there wouldn't be room on top, but you seem to have done it!

I simply purchased the stock computer protector and moved everything up top.....no turn signal indictors on the XCF-W......just FI, Low Gas, and headlight pull switch........be careful with the small "press fit" FI/low gas idiot indicator tubes.....the plastic/amber lenses on top of the white plastic tubes break easily......ask me how I know ....cost me ~$30 to replace the FI indictor tube/amber lens cover.......which probably cost KTM ~$3.00

http://www.highwaydirtbikes.com/HDB_Shop/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=KTM_Computer_Protectors

The push button switch runs my heated grips.......the Powerlet is there to charge my phone and/or anything else I want to power off a SAE pigtail (camera, battery tender, heated clothing, etc.)......the GPS/powerlet are direct wired to the battery....the heated grips are "switched" so they only run when the bike is running.....I have another switched lead that I'm not using at the moment.....

I bought my electrical harness here: http:www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Wiring_Kits/Fuseboxes/3_Circuit/3_circuit.html//

Can anybody tell me what kind of bars come on the 2012 350 EXC (US) model? I want to install some full wrap aluminum hand guards first thing, before I snap a brake or clutch reservoir/perch. I am prone to falling. I am looking for any information regarding special necessities for mounting them. What kind of hand guards fit well and look great? I have always run regular 7/8" bars, so this will be my first experience with "fat" bars. IIRC - These new EXC's have some weird brand of bars on them...
