No tips really (sorry) - I don't think it'll even be possible (not *LEGALLY* anyway) to get a plate for an '09.

I thought the first year of 50-state legal was 2010.

Basically, if you go to the DMV and fail - you won't be able to do it again. Your VIN# will be in the system and will be flagged.

Now, there are some regs that say if a vehicle was registered out of state (and for the street) *AND* it has more than 7,500 miles on the odo, you might be able to do it.

Do some further searches on ADV (especially in the California forum) and you might get some better answers.

While perfectly adequate, and no indicator whatsoever of my manliness, my fingers aren't overly long. When I dial the lever back to where I like it, neutral is hard to get. Dial the lever out and no problem, except that the reach to the lever becomes too great to keep fingers on it 100% of the time, which I'd like.

I could probably go with the 10.5mm master to get full throw of the clutch cylinder with less lever travel, but want to get folks' input before doing that.

PS: all of a sudden, I'm more interested in Husqvarna...
I have found the same issue and result as you. I have a stock 9.5mm master on my bike. Where can you get a 10.5?

According to the Motocross Action Magazine -

KTM is looking to make the base KTM platform as a starting point for Husky bikes, along the lines of VW, Seat, Audi and Skoda platform sharing cars.

even with full movement i get a little creep and neutral with the bike running isnt possible, have found that different oils makes a big difference, to the creeping

looks like you need the Timbersled setup.

If there are downsides to running the 10.5mm clutch master, it would be slightly increased effort, and that the slave cyl. may 'top out' before the master cyl. does. I do not know how much force it would take to blow out the circlip on the slave.(if that's what would happen) This could only potentially happen if the lever throw was adjusted incorrectly.

I saw that Rekluse makes an externally-adjustable slave, but do not know if it would be of any use in this case. They didn't see them mention it working with stock clutches, but I bet it does.

I had to shorten the bottom mounting bar to four holes to fit between the subframe rails toward the seat. in back I went straight through.

Question

I have a 2012 570 with a safari tank (front)bike had this when purchased,have noticed the air cleaner only gets dirty over a small area on the sides where i guess the bike tries to draw intduction air into,do these front safari tanks hinder the performace etc of the bike?Seems yery muffled/restricted with induction air.

Yep, currently reside north of T-Town. The ride was great, well worth the trip. There are so many places to ride there, it would take a lifetime to accomplish.

i'm working on getting this bike cleaned up, have found a few things to replace and have a couple questions.

looks to be a seeping at the back of the airbox seal, i'm guessing this is caused by blow-by from the crankcase vent? there is no evident oil in the airbox, just this goopy deposit on the top of the shock and bottom of the fuel tank.

could this residue be from over-oiling of the air filter??

second problem in this area is the lip of the airbox seal is turned to a gooey sticky rubber that looks to be disintegrating. i'm guessing maybe the PO used an incompatible grease to seal the air filter? it's nasty and i think i want to replace the rubber air boot completely.

spun the middle tank insert while removing the plastic "subframe" piece, but figured that out pretty quick with a 12mm wrench. gave me a bit of a heart attack tho. :)
