Thanks to KTM owners, Suzuki has probably sold more of these in the last month than in the last 12 months combined. Probably caught the inventory planners a little off-guard.

A google search of the part number will give you about 10 places to buy it. It's used for everything from motorcycles to boats to lawnmowers.

Thank you very much, Mr. Bengt!

Located the Scoozooki TPS Tester at an online boat parts store ... ordered and on it's way.

Cheers! E-Ticket

It's just an FYI. You'll place your order with BikeBandit and get charged. You'll get a subsequent e-mail and order status letting you know that it's back ordered. So for the next 30 days, you're simply waiting before deciding to pull the trigger somewhere else (hoping for the cancellation and not winding up with two) versus going somewhere else.

Hence go somewhere else.

Well maybe I have been brainwashed from reading too much Dirt Bike magazine but decided to install one of these..





Maybe just me but I could feel a little more Snap on the bottom end (pardon the pun!)

I was still getting a little hesitation with a quick twist from dead idle and a tiny bit of pop on decelerating. I reset the TPS voltage to .64 as recommended by some and WOW! I finally hit the nail on the head. No hesitation at all from idle and almost never a pop on decel. Now getting power wheelies at higher revs in 2nd gear with stock gearing. Never felt this before. I am all grins and a happy camper :-)

Can't wait til I gear to 14-50 this week.

Bike starts better at .64 as well. Was a bit slow to start at .61

KTM Spline Wear Pictures

Pictures of counter shaft spline condition.
2102 KTM 500 EXC 6526 Mi. 254 Hrs. 70% street, 30% dirt.
Spline has been greased for last 3000 miles. Before that I didn't grease the splines. A new counter shaft sprocket has minimal play on the shaft and an old one is slightly looser.
No cush drive on the rear wheel.
I use Knobbys D606's on the street and dirt.

Where do you find 606's in the stock sizes?

606

I stuffed a 130 on the back this weekend. I think that's a little bigger than stock?

I use a 90/90-21 in the front and a 130/90-18 for the rear.
The tire size on the Dunlop rear tire is misleading, It is as big as a 140.
The tires wear like iron. I already have 1200 miles on them and the rear still has plenty of tread left.

The extra difference in height, 140/80/-18 vs 130/90/-18 is not noticeable? I'm trying not to make the bike any higher than it is.

i went with the Dunlop D606 too in 130 width.

So far so good. Traction better than the OEM tire from what I can tell - or maybe because it's new

That second number is a ratio to the width, took me a long time to get over that fact so because it's a 90 doesn't really mean it's taller or not as much taller than you would think.

I don't know if this calculator really applies exactingly but it kind of does the job. It really helped me with understanding sizes at least.

If you have your rear sag set at 4 inches try increasing it to 4.5 or 5 inches.
For me it made the bike handle better and it lowered the bike. My bike is set at 5 inches rear sag.

Installed the new 14-50 gears and chain. Very impressed with the new gearing. Now I can chug around the trails in 3rd gear and 1st is good for really tight stuff. 6th is now high gear instead of an overdrive. Chugs in 6th gear at 45mph which is perfect for most of my street use. Still can hit 75+ if I need the higher speeds. IMO this should be the stock factory gearing for this bike.
