After riding some nice single track today my XCRW 450 got a little hot headed and spewed some coolant, I have the powerflow impeller and coolant recovery on it to help, so far it's been amazing and no spills until today. I'm not concerned about it but would like to know if the radiator fans fit on the radiators with moose racing braces on as well? I know I need a new stator as it is so I'm not worried with it any time soon but would like a piece of mind knowing for the really slow 1st gear stuff I can switch some fans on but unsure if the fans will fit with the moose braces on because their a little thick, also I need a new radiator for the left so should I get a stocker again to be sure they fit since the aftermarket ones I've seen are thicker?

Spent the day pre-running a roadbook ride that I'm setting up here in Colorado.

Still a bit of snow in many areas.

HDB has orange deflectors? The black ones got a little scuffed up so I just swapped to the white ones. Have to check their website again.

I haven't personally used one of those acerbis. I love my Seat Concepts seat though.

I run the stock radiator, aftermarket radiator guards (not moose, but contact moose directly to check fit for fans) and clockworks tank. My fans clear no problem on my '08 530. Depends on tank and guards you run. Definitely run the fan though.

From what Ive heard,and this makes it hearsay,
Those seats are skinny hard and good for moto-x,not so great for off road and or distance riding. They are light though.

Enduro Engineering seats have always been my go-to seat for KTM's.

HORRIBLE. The worst. Maybe okay for racing and riding gnarly singletrack where you're not sitting down much, but, ugh. Got rid of mine and replaced it with a Renazco. Can do 500-600 miles/day in relative comfort now.

Yikes,that's a lucky find,better pull that pup apart now!
Bearings falling out the bottom side isnt a good sign.

Sad kinda,My DR650 was just starting to run good at that mileage and continues to at nearly 30,000 and will maybe go to 60,000 with luck,or more.
I hope my 530 goes awhile.

Possibly the drive pin from the oil pump shaft? Looks very similar to the one in Hodakaguy's pictorial.
