I put a deposit down on the FE350S. Super stoked! Not in the dealers here yet but they have pricing. Canadian MSRP for the 350S is $11,249.

FE 350 S will be my next bike!

Street legal, baby! Dealer says they will be arriving in October. I'll use my TE250 for the rest of this season then pick up a new bike in the spring. I'm hoping/betting that they won't detune or change the suspension much from the current FE 350. Just add mirrors and blinkers.


This thread needs pictures...

Who needs an "S" when you can have this? Get your thoroughbred without a saddle and bridle, then build it for your use!






















There are some pics for ya!


well I guess CA has a method to make a consumer spend more by requiring the "S".

Besides the kicker and linkage suspension is there any meaningful differences between the 500exc and the FE501S?


I may ride a little fast and someday it may catch up and bite me in the ass but maybe not if I give it just a little more gas.

I've heard the orange color scheme is faster.

haha.. my friend that owns a 500exc thinks white is faster!! Acerbis plastic kits are less than $140

Really,, it depends on that all important back tire and whether there is any knob left on it from all the fun you just have had ..

Some things I've noticed from my friends that have 2014 500 EXCs and XCWs..

Differences on the FE vs XCW/EXC, slightly larger tank on FE (.3 gl) , rear subframe, linkage rear suspension, forks 4CS, compression/rebound adjusters on top of forks, billet triple clamps, headlight, front fender, rims, saddle and seat pan, integrated rear grab handles, airbox-filter attachment retainer, swing-arm, engine side case covers, no kick start on FE, display is nicer on FE..

The non "S" version allows Euro mapping to be loaded by the dealer where that is not allowed to be done on the EXC and XCW,,, at least by my dealer and apparently monitored by KTM. Many with the KTM circumvent this by changing the TPS setting for increased fueling.

I got my 2014 FE 501 plated in Ca. It's not hard to do if you just think it out first.

If that's any indication, I've had a lot of fun on my 500 EXC. My rear tire only lasted three weeks. Hopefully Alvincullumyork will buy a 501, because I'd really like to ride one!

Just bought a new rear shock for el señor. I hate myself.
