I borrowed an Enduro Engineering guard off a friend's 530, and fabbed one exactly like it in an hour.

Here's one for the 525.

That is an MXC.! One must be careful with that tank full... HEAVY, Sand and Woops are the areas you feel the weight.

450

400


You can get a short cable to remote mount the choke down near the engine, it should give you the clearance you need and is much more convenient than fumbling through the hole.

Procycle sells them very cheap.

As long as there is a hole in the tank, and it's just not lining up, just rotate the carb 1/2~1 deg, Bike will never notice the difference.

I don't even use the choke any more. Since you have a pumper carb......just figure out how many twists of the throttle it takes to get the bike started.

I find mine usually takes 3 squirts to make it rich enough to fire when cold.

Cheers

Im led to believe the UK bikes have a remote choke - mounts at the handlebars...
Apparently you will find parts bins full of them as most ppl replace them with the carb-mounted one.

Looks like a nice, long, very sandy climb! No issues? I bet the bike just tractored right up that terrain! Yes?

Check these Fellers......




My friend under the tree is a new rider that was a tuff hill. We had to "help" him up. Can laugh now.

Here's a couple more top of the hill pics.




Getting up that hill was more mental than anything. So damn Sandy...Had to get into 3rd gear WFO...

The guy that "took" us up rides a CR 500 2-Stroke.

Did not give the full description of what we were getting into. As soon as I came over the blind kicker at the bottom and looked up that sandy hill all I could think was... You're kidding me... don't slow down miss a shift or loose traction.

Thank god for KTM power...

Here is Ernie, the guy that "took" us up and his CR 500 up against the Cabin. That bike is a MONSTER. And the guy rides FAST...Says it's the only way the bike likes to be ridden.

Took mine for a ride in the North part of Death Valley with 20 other friends.


My cockpit with SPOT & GPS. The Stovey cradle works flawlessly yet again.



Note to self- Never ever use the regular oil bottle to carry extra again.


It is time to get new jetting for the 525. The old jetting from the 450 is just not right. My pipes are now a deep blue.



No smart Ass comments about my comfy orange seat. Got me thru 180 miles of Death Valley. That includes that dam washboard Saline Wash Rd.
