Well i gave everything the once over and did not find anything. I took the tank off and the headlight. Looked at all of the wiring and the connections. Nothing really amiss. The bikes seems to run fine.

I can't just pretend it never happened. Most of my riding (like others here) is out in the boonies without much help if the bike goes down.

I called my bike shop and talked to the owner. One thing or another I decided to take the bike in to have it looked at. I am also going to have him do a leak down check since I have so many miles.

He cautioned me that heat induced failures that are intermittent are a pisser to try to solve. He was going to poke around himself and get back to me.

Thanks for the ideas. I will report back.

Anyone know where I can find pricing on one of these. This looks like the bomb.

Thinking of picking up a 530 EXCR, how many miles/hours are ok/safe if taken care of and what is a cut off where I should start to be worried about having to have top end work done???

It varies with the lunacy of the rider,and oil changes count too.

300 hours seems doable,some go way further. Maybe best to budget for some work and hope for the best. From what I hear it's pretty easy to work on the top ends of the 08 and newer bikes.

Enduro-Tech Light

Hey Greg,

give us some specs and warranty info for this lighting system.

Wattage and amp draw?
Lumens output?
Is it dimmable with existing wiring?
Are there any Stator changes needed?
Do you need to add a rectifier?

Thanks for the specs.

No modifications are required on all EXC models 2008-2013
Will work with existing KTM light switch.
light output is 1800 Lumens and 4500 on high beam

max draw is 61 watt

Front glass is replaceable.
There is a warranty. They will try to fix the unit if there's a problem.
If not repairable they will replace the lamp.
Dust, water and mud resistant
thermal protection, over/under current protection and polarization protection

As far as other non EXC models I tried it on my US SPEC 2012 350 xcf-w that I brought here for the Enduro Panorama race and it worked although a hi/lo switch would need to be added since my bike has no factory high lo switch, just ON/Off switch. I just had it on the high setting but no other modifications were required.


Thanks
Greg

Nice bike BTW. It will look even sicker with our light.

my Paypal and my Email address is the same - gdrozd@gmail.com

I can also do CC

Shipping to Ma will be $12. No tax since I'm from IL

I could hopefully have it in your hands by June 4th.

Thanks
Greg

I have the same kit with an upgraded rotor, mine has 100 miles on it, i'm thinking on selling for a really good price ( $1300 new ) if anyone is considering buying one PM me, not advertising in market yet because don't care if I sell or not but it will be half price.

I was going to ask if you really need all that much brake, but I see it's a SM setup :-). Bet it's a hell of a stopper.
