If I were to get a new chain, what size would be good for this set-up. Or do you cut the chain down?

Thanks!

I'll bet that the '09 and '11 manuals are almost the same.

I see no reason for the existence of non-oring chains at this point.
An 0-ring chain can seem stiff when its been sitting,once its warmed up from riding they flex just fine. Ive gone many rides with a good o-ring chain with no adjustments needed,hence the sprockets last longer.

That's what I think too. I use the 2009 PDF manual for work on my 2011 530 XC-W, and I've yet to find anything that isn't covered, or looks different.

But MX is short ride and these bikes are for longer range, sometimes multi-day rides. MX bikes aren't running through creeks and rivers.

O-ring chain with a steel rear sprocket like Stealth, Ironman or even economy steel sprockets will last the longest especially if you change out the front before it wears considerably.

HID headlight upgrade (it's alive)

Sorry to have been lingereing so long on finishing this up. So in this picture you can see the wiring coming from the back of the housing. I used the original lo-beam wire grommet to run the hi-beam gate wiring through after removing the bulb tangs.



This picture shows the "behind the headlight" wiring that was done. The lower left in the picture is the Ballst that came with the lighting kit. It was mounted to the lower triple clamp using the upper part of the hole already machined and threaded there. All of the wiring from the battery followed the routing of the factory harness to the front of the bike. The ornage relay in the upper right was bolted through the old turn signal bracket. The brown and white wires were connected to the switch block in the Morimoto harness to turn on the light itself. The Blue and brown were connected to the red and black from the hi-beam gate on the projector. Brown is the ground. I had to make some offset brackets to stand the head light shroud about 1.5 inches forward of the factory location due to the depth of the bulb and its plug.





Here it is on. I also did the Baja Designs statr and regulator rectifier upgrade.



Lo-beam





Hi beam. Those cars are about 80-100 yards away.





I have around $250 in parts in the whole mod including the HID Kit from the Retrofit Source and the BD reg/rectifier and Stator mod kit. I am pretty happy with it. Hope you guys like it here as well.

I am also riding a 530 on similar terrain.

I saw your previous post regarding new sprockets, and thought that maybe your gearing is high.

I ride 13/50...seems to be the favoured gearing in the east...might give you more pop and less launch when you need to wheelie over a log...maybe 52 even.

Steel rear sprockets all wear a long time compared to aluminum but the Ironman and Stealth are lighter than the regular priced steel sprockets.

No, this is just my personal fun bike. We rent ADV'd KLR650's and will be expanding our lineup soon.

I currently have 14, 50 on the bike and this seems to be a real good all around ratio. But I may get a 13 this spring and try it out. As the tight single track I like to ride, I'm lugging second gear..

I ran 14-50 for a long time then switched to 14-52....like it a lot better! Does great in the tight twisty stuff and still has enough on top to haul the mail when needed! I prefer to run a larger counter sprocket when possible to extend chain and chain slider life.
