Give a call Jesse, we need catch up, now that I've picked up a KTM I'll be making more parts for it.

PS: Bikes have already arrived in Chile and are now in customs clearance. Trip starts this weekend!
Good luck Lukas, I'll be watching the ride reports.

Alright so this is my rear fender on my 08 XCRW 450. As said I'm new with KTM and is it true this is the same fender as the EXCR model? Will the broken tab or whatever on the left of this picture be a problem with mounting the stock rear brakelight for a EXCR?

Mine broke off also... Though I did manage to keep it. I ended up drilling through the tab out the top of the fender and running a 1-1/2" machine bolt up through it (slotted head on top with a washer). Been on there for nearly 3 years. Try using a piece of pipe/tubing to make up the spacer for the tab.

Water Pump Seal Replacement

Just replaced the water pump seal on my new 530, it started weeping at 51 hrs. Took pictures this time and did up a How-To for people unfamiliar with changing the seal out. It's a little lengthy so I posted it in it's own thread and will link it here so it doesn't take up so much space.

Here's the link: CLICK HERE

Wicked Wings Exhaust installed

I splurged and bought a Wings Exhaust. Installed tonight.



Sounds good, looks good, and doesn't get hot after running for 5 minutes.

Thank You Everyone

I would just like to say a BIG Thank You to all the contributors and pioneers of this thread.......... You know who you are and two in particular Neduro & HG ..... for making it easy for me to build this, My WEAPON OF GAS CONSUMPTION is a 2011 model KTM 530 Exc Factory edition...... jD Jetting (starts with ease)/fan kit/ Thermostat bypass/Samco hoses/wetter water/ Scott's/ Akra/Sump guard/13 l tank/ Moose SS filter/brake snake/ Horn relocation, Only one thing left to do is the water pump enlargement (Now on order) Oh and perhaps some BLING (I think a crack or meth amphetamine habit would be cheaper sometimes) The 530 is an awesome piece of equipment my decision to buy was also due to this thread.

28hrs = 6 oil changes (engine and gearbox)
= 1 valve check (in spec)
= 1 rear tyre (Pirelli MT 21)

Oil capacity/Life

Great looking bike!

Ned or any others what did you do for oil capacity and life for your Dakar Ride? Just curious as I will probably never ride as hard as you do so if your bike lasted then I should never have an issue with mine.

I have seen both good and bad results with auxillary oil coolers.

You'll be getting rid of the Acerbis Roadbook holder very fast, it's a piece of sh$#t. Mine lasted about one ride.

Very hard to advance the roadbook w/ that thing.

Sweet looking bike!

I'd be interested to hear from Ned as well. I looked at different cooler options for the 530 and decided it wasn't needed for my type of riding. When riding local I change oil often...probably to often . On a 1500 mile off road trip with the 530 I carry one qt of oil with me, that gives me enough to top off with each morning on the entire trip and to change oil on the engine side at the half way point. One of my friends rides with me every year and skips the half way oil change on his, neither of us have had any engine issues related to wear/oil.

For me it's a balance of risk/benefit. I use the 530 to get me to very remote locations out in the middle of know where and reliability is king. To me the cooler ads a extra level of complexity and something else that can be damaged in a crash. I prefer to carry the qt of oil and change it mid trip so I don't have to worry about any cooler issues.

I really like the design of the HT for the RFS bikes since it's one piece and replaces the stator cover. On our bikes the HT unit sits over top of the stock stator cover and is only held in place by two 6mm bolts....I have a fear that in a hard crash the cooler could be damaged and worse damage the engine cases where it bolts into. Then you still have the oil lines that are susceptible to damage. I've read good review from people using the HT cooler but for my type of riding the risk looks to great.
