I'm rocking a '10 450 and loving every bit of it.

Work done so far has been a lot:

complete frame teardown, powdercoat orange
DJH head work valves cleaning. cylinder hone after burning oil at about 80-90 hours.
Vertex piston
gatos bros stabilizer mount / bar risers (work of art)
Excel / Talon wheels
h4 bulb in my stock headlight. No stator upgrade
seatconcepts seat (regular height, despite that I'm tall - I sold the tall one)
41mm carb
highway dirtbikes upper mount and bark busters
MX71 tires
safari 4 gallon tank
custom street legal setup using ebay parts (its an XC-W six days)

and then a lot lot more...

Big thing is I did not merge the oil sumps. I started having transfer issues and installed the upgraded parts. Definitely works great.

Maybe next time, now you have ridden one and know what they are like though. What was the asking price?
He was asking 6 grand. A very fair price given that everything here in the NT of Australia is almost always double the price that we pay in the states. I really did want to like the bike, but for now, it's just not for me.

Question.

Slowly rolling on throttle from idle to just off idle is really like an on off switch. When cruising at low speeds it's difficult to do slow maneuvering, it acts like the carb is too big for the bike. It's jerky and I can't put the power back on easily. Seems as if clutch in then back out is the only way to be smooth with it.

I've already have a JD jet kit and decent gearing 15/48. I set my chain adjustment correctly. Throttle cables are adjusted correctly.

Is this an adjustment issue in the carb or am I doing something wrong?

Say if I was ever looking to find the balance point on this bike in a wheelie....I'd be on my a** real fast trying to roll on and off idle lightly.

Nice! Your bike looks much like my 2011 530,Ive got the Same tank on it,so far so good with mine,barely 60 hours on it due to riding my 200XCW all that I can. The 530 doesnt use oil and starts way quicker after sitting awhile then most bikes Ive had.

If it's already jetted and you want to fine-tune the throttle response, these G2 throttle tubes work really well.

Looks like a nice setup. I guess I'll add it to the list. Just bought triples. Probably a Renazco soon. Suspension rebuild is definitely on the menu. Just bought a valve shim kit. blah blah blah blah toys are fun.

qucik question where does the fuel vent hose go to? The wife bought me the little ktm vent hose bling. The old long hose went into the frame, then where from there? Now that I have taken off the long hose, should I cap that spot in the frame some how? Or do guys still have the little 90 degree elbow just hagning on the frame?

Hmmm put a new tire on and I'm thinking I may have a clearance issue? I am running a 14/48 with the stock chain and there were wear marks from my half worn OEM 6 day. Now with a new Pirelli after a short ride the wear marks are easily Double. Should I be concerned as without the little flap there appears to be enough clearance?



And without the flap

I'm no pro but I'd try putting another link in the chain and adjusting the wheel back a bit. Not only do you get the benefit of not having the tire rub but also get the added wheelbase.

I think you may be right. It'll have to wait until next week though. That little mudflap is going to have a rough day tomorrow.

Hey Guys, anyone running different bars on there bike? I like the height of the stock bars, but want them to sweep back a little towards me more, I feel like they are... for ease of discussion to straight across and I dont get full contact of my hand to the bars. On ProTapers site it show a suzuki/ktm stock bend, when comparing bar bends is that the correct factory bar bend for out bike?

I had a pro-taper evo bar (suzuki Windham mid) that I had taken off a CR250 and put on my KTM530 just because they are higher - they're the highest ride of the EVO bars. Took it for a test ride around the subdivision and it caused pain in my wrists first time out until I mounted the bars in a more forward position. Haven't had them out on the trails yet, but I put them on coz the stock bars caused me to have to bend forward when standing and I needed a taller setup. Might end up putting some bar raisers on.

After some more research it seems the stock bars are swept almost as far as they will sweep bars these days. Guess I may just have to get used to it.

Clearance looks fine. Those flaps all get chewed-up on these bikes. Run it.
