Head gasket blown? Coolant leaks into cylinder and burns with fuel. Does rattling still happen when cranking engine? Is there compression? Maybe the water pump failed?

Bleeding the rear brake on 2010 530

I totally disassembled my rear caliber and now cannot get it to bleed. I pump it for an hour and nearly nothing comes out when I open the bleeder. I have bleed lots of cars brakes and know the process, however it seems like the master cylinder wont prime.

What I am missing.

I tried to back bleed them like you do for the clutch and there must be a oneway value that wont allow any fluid to go in

How did that come about? Gradually lost power and died or ran fine and then blew white smoke out the pipe and died? No water in oil or oil in radiator?

There's no one way valve, you should be able to back bleed the front and rear brake systems. Are you sure that the piston isn't still engaged and blocking the flow of fluid?

I just had to replace my odometer battery as well. My trip meter kept resetting to zero which is very annoying when that is my fuel gauge!

It is easy to pop off the unit and replace the battery. The battery I took out still read 3 volts though so I am hoping the unit itself is fine. The new battery was 3.27v. Not a huge difference!

Don't tell me that!

I guess that is a good excuse for a Trailtech Voyager though

Headed to Buena Vista

Hey Gang,

Wife and I are headed to Buena Vista while the Chucklehead is at BSA Camp not far away. We are looking to do some riding while there and also want to know of any quality shops that can provide parts and service for the KTM and or the Yamaha in that area. Not expecting any problems just making sure we have a Plan B.

What Jetting do you guys run in your 09' 530s up there. Mine has been desmogged and has the JD Red needle in it with the lowlander jets. Wife is riding the 08' TTR 250 and I will probably leave it alone. It seems to be a little lean in the mid range right now so it may be just right.

Any ideas on trails or where to get good maps woul dbe nice too. I have some of my own ideas, but know there is still lots of snow. We are planning to be there the week of 6/10.

Mountain Tech Yamaha in BV can help you out; Sean (the owner) is a good guy. Tons of riding right there; check out the trials in Fourmile OHV area, or even over Cottonwood pass in Taylor Park.

Mountain Tech should have maps, but here's one of Fourmile:

edit: just noticed your dates- Taylor will likely still have snow. Fourmile is completely clear right now, or come down to Salida; the Rainbow Trail is completely clear as of yesterday.

Im still having a hard time getting the clutch to dis-engage all the way on my 2011 530,bled the clutch thouroughly,Im running T-6 Synthetic for trans oil currently,I cant see how it would work well on singletrack with a dragging clutch helping stall the engine in tight stuff.
Any other 530 riders dealt with this issue and fixed it?

Ive had a good collection of KTM's and all had a clutch that dis-engaged no problem.

Thanks for any help!

Mine only drags a little when it is cold. After a mile or so it's free. Does yours drag all the time?

It does drag all the time,enough to stall it when I put it in gear unless the idle is turned up pretty high. Seems odd to have a bike do this pretty much from new.
I havent ridden it on really tight trail but once and having it stall with the clutch in then not be able to start it till neutral is found just doesnt work for me.

Great bike otherwise though.

Could it be the torque limiter?

**edit** probably not as that seems more starting issue....
