Any pics of the giant loop tank bag with a Clarke or IMS 3 gal tank?

What does it cost to swap out the gears from an MXC to an EXC? I found a promising deal on an MXC but I can't find anywhere that gives me a reliable answer to how much swapping the gears would cost used (new I found it to be right around 500)

One of the pro builders on ktmtalk.com should be able to help you out.

Caflash seems to have plenty of good second hand parts.

There's been an EXC trans on ebay for awhile for about $300. You could throw an offer to the seller. It has worked for me in the past.

I was looking to do the same trans swap. Then I came across a full 525EXC basket case. I put all the suspension on my boys bike and built the motor for mine. I was lucky and it only cost my another $200 to get the motor running. My full 450mxc is now sitting safely in a box as a backup.
Tip- Use the KTM gasket set. It has everything you will need, all seals washers & o-rings included. The gasket set alone is $160.
Caflash would also be a good source for the gearset.

Thanks guys, that really helps.

It means the 2002 MXC for sale is very close to the price of the 04 EXC I found.

Wait! You didn't note it was a 2002 mxc. 2003 they changed the clutch attachment on the mainshaft. Go for the 04EXC. There are several good evolution of the RFS threads on KTM talk. 04 is way better than the 02.

Is this really what you're asking? Or how well do they work?

If it's the later you'll get you a wide range of answers depending on who you ask. You need to just try a bike with one and see what you think. Otherwise it's like asking for a tyre recommendation.

Yes. Set up properly, they are the dogs danglies. However, I'd say NO if your children have to go without food so you can get one...

I run the Scotts. Makes riding rough terrain less fatiguing because you don't fight the bars getting deflected. They inhibit hi-speed tank slappers, too.

Once you get used to running a stabilizer, you will surely notice if you aren't.
I was riding sweep a few weeks ago and was all over the place and had serious arm pump by the time I got done. I later found out my pinch bolt had dropped off. The arm was just dangling there. I have since installed a new bolt. I happen to run GPR's on all my bikes. I've heard the Scotts has a a 2 speed dampening. I have no experience if that is better or not. Cost seems to be comparable.

Yes plus the Scotts (dirt) has a free return to center. The GPR dampens indentically in both directions (same as the Ohlins/Scotts street). Each has their fans and detractors. EMIG is the same as Scotts IIRC though they claim that their no return to center damping is unique to them

I've also heard it said that the GPRs need more frequent service. Nice thing about the GPR is that there is only one knob to turn
