Is there a preferred vendor for this product that ADV gets support from. I am looking at either Scotts or GPR as they seem to be the most popular out there and most supported.

Scotts is a better product. Fastway's stabilizers use the same mounting pattern and also look like they have some pretty cool features, but I don't have any firsthand experience with them. As far as mounts go, read this.

I have a GPR here that came on my 530,even turned down all the way it is like steering with a flat front tire,the PO just rode it like that I think,he was pretty clueless. I dont know whats wrong with it,the damper has all of 20 hours on it. Ive got a Scott's here that will go on the 530.
I cant ride tight woods with any steering damper,they just make me hit trees at full chat.

I recently got a 2010 530 EXC with both dirt and supermoto rims. PO used it mostly for supermoto and had hacked the kickstand short. Leans dangerously with dirt wheels on. Anyone know of an adjustable kickstand? Thanks.

Weld a nut and use a threaded bolt.

When I lost the plastic foot, I tapped the side stand and used a bolt which allows me to adjust it. I even welded and shaped a foot for it. It's not as pretty as a PMB stand, but it's been on there for 100 hours and is better than the too short stock one as well.

This turned out to be really great advice......

Dang,why didnt I do that? The first hard bump I hit on the 530 sucked the license plate/taillight/turn signals into the tire and blew them all over the road.
I was a little surprized it did it that quick.

Yeah, a lot of guys had this problem.
the best solution I'm aware of is this: http://www.ktm-parts.com/78014040044.html

I pop riveted on an Acerbis X-LED taillight mount/license plate holder. so far so good,its a minimalist little thing but just holds my plate and some tiny turn signals. I think Acerbis came out with them pretty recently,online their about 40.00. I also used some BIG pop rivets to put an Acerbis fender stiffener underneath to slow down the fender flapping at supersonic speeds. I would post a pic but even though I signed up for smugmug it still says, YOU MAY NOT POST ATTACHMENTS, at the bottom of the page. I'll have to look into it.
