Been a long while since I looked but I'm pretty sure I'm running 14/44 on my '10 450 exc champions. Its pretty much perfect and will do 100 if I work for it.

Thats the thing, this bike will do 100 fairly easy. Blows my mind.
And that is on Pirelli scorpions at 8 and 10 psi!

Not a chance! 13/50 is craaaazy low for 17" wheels. I'd have to look at mine, but I'm pretty sure it's 14/45. I have a shorter chain to swap. Not saying you can't ry it, but you'll be disappointed.

Thats what I was thinking. I will try it out though and see how it goes. I might even take some good video of it!

I guess I might have to shorten the chain because Im not sure if the adjuster could take up the slack for a smaller rear sprocket.

14/50 on the big wheels and 14/48 with the 17", the axle adjuster blocks can flip to make up 2 rear teeth, no chain adjustment necessary.

Sweet! Thanks.

Found some rotors but not sure if they will fit. I know I will need a brake adapter. Any thoughts?

i gotta factory '06 450 SMR... sprockets are 14/45, and anything else i tried wasn't as good.... 14/48 sounds too short for a 530, it'll probably pull less than a 45... you can get sprockets from RMATV for like $20, so easy to try....

Wheels

I'm in the market for a spare rear wheel so I don't have to keep changing out my tire when I go to the dunes. Paddles are a PIA. Anyway, anyone know about WARP 9 wheels? Seem to be the most reasonable option out there at $380 for complete rear with disk and sprocket. 19" rears are lot cheaper, but that would mean having to buy a new paddle tire and not sure about the fit. My current setup doesn't leave much room between the tire and swing arm- altough I could probably add a link to slove that. Any ideas?

WARP 9's are the cheapest way to go and they work great if you're hitt'en the dunes all the time. Easy swap. Just make sure you have the same rear sprocket number of teeth and no adjustment necessary.

I run them on my 450exc that I supermoto'd. $1200 for a front, rear, tubes, tires, rotors, sprocket and caliper relocator. They have performed very well!

just installed my dirt tricks chain tensioner, what a nice difference. Easy to install. You don't need to put at TDC. I apologize after listening I realized I sound nasally and realized my voice is annoying.

with stock chain tensioner



with dirt tricks installed

HID Headlight Project

Make some slow but sure progress due to other commitments getting in the way.



The parts from The Retrofit Source. Morimoto projector with Hi-Lo beam cut off, Their three-five ballast, bulb and wiring harness.



Modifying the stock housing after removing the lens.



Bulb and projector installed for a trial fit prior to JB Welding the projector into the housing.



Projector JB welded into the housing.



Projector in housing with the hi beam cut-off wires ran out of the lo-beam bulb socket.

That is as far as I have gotten. I am working on some stand-off brackets to allow for enough room for the bulb to extend out of the back and not hit the steering head stem. May be another week or so before I get anything else done. Headed to Arkansas for a sportbike ride this weekend.

Cool. I do the same thing except I use a "vibration proof" h4 bulb from PIAA for about $40 a bulb or 2 for $55. Never had one fail, pushing 3.5 years now on the same bulb with some crazy adventures... Use a $8 glue gun from Wal Mart and it works great... I alsop did it on a 8" Baja Designs light rather than the 7" retrofit...

On a second note, started getting the dreaded water pump weep, pretty severely now. But even with low water with the thermostat pulled it still runs super cool and the fan hardly triggers.

Wasn't aware it happened on the 08-11 like it does with the RFS engines. Started searching and found more more great article by Hodaka guy... basically have to replace a seal...
