I may have missed it, but do you have a weight measurement on that rally frame?

FYI, Geek.
I have that same tank. At the aft end where the pump electrical IF is located, watch the (4) screws. This tank does NOT have the metal inserts that the OEM tank had (at least mine didn't). If you use the screws from the OEM tank and you pull the pump a few times like I did, you will soon find them stripping. I put in longer screws to get more engagement. And save the tank...

Fresh Air Thingy...

Hey all,

I have been trolling this thread (hoping to get me a 500 EXC) and thought I would let you in on what I did for my smog pump stuff. I have a '09 CRF450X plated in Ga and love it but the 500 seems to be what I am trying to build my bike into (I know I know...) anyways, the fresh air thing on your bike seems to be the exact same as mine.

I wanted to "look" legal to any Ranger I come across as some out here are being educated as to look for smog equipment removal. The item that lets fresh air in and the dreaded decel pop is the little silver box on the side of the motor and if you open it you will find a metal reed valve. I removed the reed valve and filled both sides of the "box" with Permatex High Temp RTV Silicone. Once the two sides are put back togehter there is no way anything is going anywhere, air or otherwise. This effectively does the same as removal but will pass any visual inspection by Johnny Law.

Just an FYI... later

Dave Morgan

Range Patrol

In NW Florida we are lucky to be able to ride the Eglin AFB reservation by exploiting a loop hole which allows plated vehicles in open for hunting and rec. We get stopped by Range Patrol OFTEN since motorcycles are always suspect.

Over the years the Range folks have gotten to know me and other ADV riders pretty well and no longer give us the hassel of showing all the paper work etc.

The last time I was stopped the Range cop (a really nice guy) asked "I see motorcycles all over the streets and have never seen an organge bike, yet out on the range I have never seen anything BUT and orange bike. What gives?"

I told him orange bikes were built for dirt roads and not pavement but were fully street legal. He told us to enjoy and be safe.

We are lucky to have this area to ride, and the range guys wouldn't know de-smogged bike from one low on blinker fluid.

Hey Vico1,

I saw your post earlier about being in the Ft. Walton area. The family and I just got back from Eglin visiting my nephew this last Saturday, we were there for a week and I would have loved to get in touch to check your bike out, but oh-well. And sunama-biatch did it rain when we got there...

The reason I mentioned the Ranger stuff is if you haven't read some posts from Yanni23 about a year or so ago he got royally shafted by "The Man". A couple of fed's took his dualsport adventure tour then busted his arse for all kinds of stuff. Now whether you agree with his modus operandi or not is each persons outlook. BUT, if I remember correctly he was banned from federal property for a year (this includes national parks), taken to court, had his business shutdown and other associated stuff.

Enough blathering on my part, I just love my Country but fear my Government...

I would be interested also.

BTW - We had some great riding during that storm... rain only packs the sand and removes the dust.

WOW!...

I am having a lot of trouble finding the particulars, a bunch of stuff has been "removed" from other sites.

But you can find a little at http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/813958-where-is-yanni/

I don't want to open any old wounds with this as I thought he was a great guy and he helped me out a lot with information and such. He was on numerous sites not just advrider, and basically his signature was an unpaid advertisement, so he got grief from moderators for that, a couple of feds were tipped off to him running a business with no license, so he got really busted for that. He ran some serious dual sport rides that were an absolute blast!..

I have fallen off the whole web thing for a while as I have been busy with life and all so I don't know the exact outcome.

I can pm you guys what I know and have seen but I don't want to gum up this thread...

Aloha-Y'all

Bad phone pic, but with everything you see, the damper, med lowers, comp protector and fasteners, it's just under 6lbs.

Let me know what you'd like to see the weight of and I'll weigh it.

I remember reading about that while they were going about sanitizing it, i'd be reading it one minute, the next something would go missing. I enjoyed Yanni's RR's.

Haha, yes, sure, but the real question is, will it blend?

that's the full weight including risers, clamps, etc... so subtract the weight of your stock stuff to find out how much weight you are adding.

Just the addition of the side plates and braces weigh very little (since I already had all the other stuff on my bike )

On the ECU mapping - the KTM part numbers for the EXC ECU and the XCW ECU are exactly the same. Only difference is the mapping the dealer installs. I'm guessing the ECU's come from the factory "blank", and the dealer is responsible for installing the appropriate map.

The map you want to get is for the european EXC 500, which is unrestricted. The map number is: KM787EU12C0601.
I have a copy and can email it to anyone who wants. The issue will be trying to find a dealer to install it for you.
Please send it to me. avconnect@comcast.net
