Got the 530 back from Konflict Motorsports: Lowered a bit, entire bike gone through and optimzed for me at 205 lbs which included spring to replace both F&R units the previous huge rider had on it. It fits sooo well now.

Paul provided his propritary LED rear taillight and turn setup - WOW talk about a high quality unit and fantastic workmanship - and amazingly fast shipment...just THE BEST. Now I've gotten rid of the OEM crap unit and about to get rid of the honkin' rear turns which are broken now anyway

I believe this is the unit Ned used.

Quick question...I'm doing the JD Jetting kit on my 2011 450 exc...I got to the diaphragm spacer step and dropped the diaphragm from the carb. I have the spacer installed but am unsure on which way to put the diaphragm back in.

This way:



Or this way:



Thanks for the help.

This looks like the correct orientation. The lip sticking up on the edge of the diaphragm should fit into the recess on the carb, and the "label" imprinted on the diaphragm (opposite side as shown above) should be visible once it's installed in the carb body.

28hrs = 6 oil changes (engine and gearbox)
= 1 valve check (in spec)
= 1 rear tyre (Pirelli MT 21):c lap:c lap:c lap:c lap
That sure is a purdy one there scotty...what about the kickstand and chainguide? Those are some nice rear blinkers. At 28 hours, you sem to have about 2000 worth of bling... when you part it out at 50hrs or so, I might be interested in the some of that bling if my stock stuff is worn out...







or are you gonna ride it?

Will the OEM rear blinkers fit this taillight setup? The flush-mounts look so small to me.

Correct.

I think it's a fine piece of gear.

For me, it is much superior to the HT racing one in that it picks up and returns in the oil filter cavity... but I'm not in love.

1) Oil changes are messy, both draining and filling are impossible to do clean.

2) It's very easy to warp the oil filter cover (the stock oil filter cover relocates to the rear edge) when replacing the filter, causing a seep.

3) I'm not convinced that part of my vapor locking issue in the race didn't come from the way the fuel line has no choice but to run above the oil cooler, next to the cylinder.

In any event, more oil = better, and it was very hot at times in the race, indicating that it was getting heat out of the motor that could otherwise have been detrimental.

I wouldn't bother with one for normal use. I don't consider the Dakar normal use.

Looks like something is amiss with the RR turn signal. Kind of close to the exhaust outlet and may melt. I know mine did.

I think someone should start making oil pickups that drop into the filter cavity (like the CPW unit uses) and them run them to either the Fluidyne radiators with an integrated oil cooler, or to a Setrab or similar separate oil cooler.

But I couldn't find anything like that in existence, so the CPW is what I used.

I will spend some time tonight looking at where I could add another radiator to the 530. My thinking is that since these bikes cost so much I better make it last as best I can. So for now I will be doing the HG method.

I may have to get into the case anyway because I am noticing that when in nuetral and pushing the "easy button" the bike wants to lurch. So my guess is that the clutch thingy that is mentioned way earlier in this thread is dragging and needs an adjustment. Time for some research into the archives. I know HG did an incredible write up on this and I have it somewhere to review.
