$25+ at the dealer.

RMATV sells them for $8.

I was not able to source any others at a discount.

So Ned ......since you run through all these bikes, what is your preferred break in method. I know this is kind of like an oil thread, but are you a nice and easy kin of guy or a Moto Tune kind of guy?

This should be interesting!

How long do our plugs actually last ? I checked mine at 1000mi about 140 hrs. Looks good, but the bike has recently become harder starting.
Here is a stupid question, How many hours/miles will one of these motors last provided regular good maintenance ? I know thats a tough question , but now that the woman is getting better off road I am going to want to park the 990 and ride the small bike when I ride with her. Hate to say it, maybe I need (want ) a 690 .

Thanks ADVr's

Got the plugs and about $100+ of other stuff from Rocky Mountain ATV. I would like to know the difference between an X-ring chain and an O-ring chain. I am thinking about swapping out my front sprocket from a 14 to a 13 and keeping the rear 48 in place. I know that DID makes some of the better chains out there but as far as sprockets go who do I stay away from? I can't beleive I am envisioning Mike Meyers as 'Dieter' when mentioning "Schprockets."

I think RK makes a quality x-ring chain for the price, IMO. I would not pay too much extra for X-ring over O-ring.

I have tried OEM, Renthal, RMATV/Tusk? they all wear pretty good. The Renthal certainly looked to be of higher quality. RMATV's sprocket is 9 bucks!!

Steel on the rear sprocket...I used the OEM all steel for $30 and it lasted much longer than the chain and 2 CS sprockets. I would suspect it would last as long as Supersprox or Ironman, just weighs a lb more

What is everyone doing to improve the headlight? Not looking for the 8" racelight mod, but upgrades to the stock headlight.

Also does the XC-W (6 Days) use the same headlight as the EXC?

Thanks

DIY stator winding on exc 530 or 450

any one rewind their own stator - I did my xr 600 and xr 650 so how much harder can the 530 be ?
figure on counting the # of turns of wire that is stock and then replacing it with the next bigger size wire
and maintaining the same # of turns - hope it works - any one have any tips ?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
if memory serves me right you have to wind each pole the opposite direction from the last
clockwise-counterclockwise-clockwise-counterclockwise-etc.

Yeah, that's right. Just re-wound the stator for my 650R and purchased a stator from Trailtech for my 450XCW. Mostly because I couldn't find any info about what size wire to use, how many turns-per-pole, etc. The plug-and-play stator from Trailtech is pretty nice though. Make sure to ask for the new auto-switching regulator/rectifier though. Right now it's an option, but they're switching everything over to these. Pretty nice, because it automatically turns your lights on/off with the engine, and it's got an adjustable delay so you can set how long the lights stay on for after the engine is shut-off. Really like being able to kill my bike and just walk away from it.

Testing now

I rewound my 530 snowbike stator using TT rectifier. Changed the bike to a floating ground and a full DC system.
I did this to increase the heat from the hotgrips. (It is a snowbike.)
Only one ride at this time but all is working well so far.
Used online instructions and happy to share if anyone wants.
