I have been detailing my 530 / Christini build and issues here:

http://forums.rmdra.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7105

My experience may have been atypical; perhaps poor assembly or just my luck.

Lots of very happy owners out there with many more trouble free hours, and the customer service and support has been terrific. When it works it's so very fawesome.

HAHA! It's OK to be jealous of my GS!

There may be people twisting it farther than me, but nobody knows how to land like a sack of potatoes better than me!

I wasn't insulting YOU, just thinking I'd prefer to ride my dirtbike like a dirtbike and not like a GS... although I do a fair to middlin job at throwing money away on THAT bike too....
Now everyone just settle down. All was said with a grin and a smile. Technically KMC1 was making a very accurate observation. I don't use hard bags for that very reason and instead have all soft luggage on the bike.

So, I suppose what I should have said alternatively was, thank you very much KMC1 for your very astute observation (even if if was pretty obvious - again - just kidding).

In the immortal words of Rodney King: "Can we all get along?"

I don't think you realize how serious a situation this is buddy!



And didn't Rodney King end up being arrested for soliciting a transvestite prostitute in Hollywood some years ago?

Dirtbagz Ranger Flattop kit

Has anyone here used the Dirtbagz Ranger kit on their KTM? Their website is not all that great in details on how the brackets will attach and things of that nature.

They look similar to the wolfe saddle bags that I use. I don't see any hard brackets - probably strap them down - that's the way the Wolfes work. I like the look of them. If you get them let us know how they work out.

I have a set of brackets that Berg Briggs made for me. I have now migrated to the 500EXC so I would be willing to sell these if anyone wants to go the Dirtbagz route. I also have some like new bags.

Phones make great phones.



And why cameras make better cameras than phones do.

Ignition maps - 2010 ktm 530 exc?

2 parter:

I have a 2010 MTM 530 EXC, factory plated bike. Does it have the *2* ignition maps?

Will this switch 'work' to switch between the two maps, super slick (and way overpriced): http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-KTM-MAP-...item35b62defb1

yeah there are two maps.

That switch is super expensive. Sicass makes a cheap, but bulky, plastic one. I think I have one in a box somewhere. Had it on the bike for a while and ended up taking it off to make room on the bars. I run in "full power" mode 99% of the time, unless I'm in very tight slippery singletrack, in which case the lower power map softens the hit enough to help make it more tractable. You can access the lower power map on your bike without the switch by simply unplugging the factory wire from it's male/female junction.
