I bought mine for that exact same purpose, and they have worked out great on my 530. I was cautioned by some about too much weight on the subframe, so you will have to do your own math on that one. I am about 165-170, my chick is about 95; no issues for us. I've had her on a few fire road rides that were about 25 miles or so, and she was comfortable. A big reason for her comfort though, is probably the Seat Concepts seat that I have on the bike. If you will be doing any amount of two-up riding I would suggest picking one up. I didn't buy it for that, but it just worked out to be a really kick ass product for me on long rides, and the added benefit of being great for the occasions the chick is on the back. No, I don't work for them

Someone on KTMtalk made a funny post about the difference between riding 2-up with wives and girlfriends.

I've done a lot of 2-up riding on my 450. No passenger pegs, just sharing the main ones. Passenger pegs would be nice, and might eventually add a set, but it's the seat that makes it all possible. Had Renazco put a step on this one, which I like riding solo, and give my passenger a little extra padding.

Have taken passengers a lot of places that I wouldn't want to go on a bigger bike. Taking off on a little bike with a bedroll and a bottle of whiskey a special ladyfriend makes for a pretty excellent way to spend a weekend. Would even say that the passenger pegs are optional.

Well my pegs will be here in 2 weeks since they were sold out, I have the Enduro Engineering seat and it's VERY plush so I don't think the comfort will be too bad. I weigh 180lbs and she is 160lbs so I'm going to test the seating before going on a ride and have the sub break off.

The best passenger peg setup I've seen was Mike Lafferty's- he runs a second set of pegs welded longitudinally back from the normal set. So, the passenger's feet might be under the rider's heals, but, everyone shares the same pivot point so that as the bike moves, you are clunking together, and the rider's foot is both the widest and the lowest point, meaning no unintentional battering of the passenger's feet.

He ran a few days of the CO600 like this on a KTM 500, plenty of good riders were struggling to keep up.

I demo'ed a 2013 450 a little while back, and was so smitten one wound up in my garage. Anyone who wants to follow that story, I've started a thread here.

Braapppp!

Parts compatibility

Can someone tell me what other KTM models the EXCR is compatible with as far as consumable parts--air/oil filters, sprockets? motorcycle-superstore does not list the EXCR in their bike-specific search. I did a little shopping cart experiment on rockymountainatv and it looks like F/R Renthal sprockets at least look to be the same for the 450 XC-F. Thanks.

Just select the next year newer. 530 EXC or 450 EXC.

HT Oil Cooler?

Has anyone tried out the HT Oil Cooler? Or an alternative? I'd like to get more oil capacity for longer rides, especially where I have to burn lengthy asphalt to get to the trails.

Hunh. I've read this entire thread since getting my 450 but didn't remeber seeing much about them. Guess I'll go back and read it again.

Just curious but is all the body parts the same as my XCRW from a EXC? I want to get this for my 450 XCRW and it looks identical but, just to be sure before my wife gets it for me for Christmas =D even though I leave for Parris Island in January I want to enjoy some killer Monster decal on my KTM.

Thought I throw in a video from a ride a week ago testing my Liquid Image goggle cam in the rain with my XCRW. I liked it =D
