Just Swingin by to check and see how many miles you 500 owners have logged so far, and if any issues engine wear related should be noted.

Any determination as to why it died Todd?

Is it clogged? physical failure? electrical failure?

autopsy time?

I've been ignoring it right now as I have the 610 to finish up and I'm waiting for a new pump to show up.

84 hours and 1927 miles. No issues so far.
  • Valves haven't moved.
  • My bike did have the shafts in upside down, so nearly 2000 miles with them "wrong" and no noticeable problems when they were fixed.
  • It also had the original 10 micron fuel filter in it from the factory for all of those 2000 miles, no tank sock, no inline filter, pump gas, zero issues.
  • I've been slightly lazy on oil changes if you go by the book.

It just works, I just ride!

I have only 825 miles and 31hrs. Desmogged and re-geared and new rubber. All else is stock. My rocker shafts were installed correctly.

Like "child"

It just works and I just ride...

Acerbis new 5 gallon tank doesn't look that much bigger than the stock tank. Seems they have done a very good job of filling any space under the stock tank location with their tank.

It sure doesn't look like a 5 gallon tank....

wonder if it handles like a 5 gallon tanker?

Pretty excited about that!!! And again i forgot, about 70% dirt and 30% super moto

And I forgot to mention that this is the most phenomonal bike I have ever owned

Jd tuner questions????

Just installed my JD tuner... wow what a big difference. throttle response is amazing. Currently stock with exception of desmogged and regeared to 14/50. Has anyone tried different settings on the JD tuner? Im cu rious if there's a better combination out there. Also is the JD tuner safe in the airbox? Has anyone had a problem with it getting wet or muddy? thank you

I have 5 rides on my 15/45 setup. How much have you used your 13/50? I'd be willing to do a straight trade and we split the shipping!

The 13/50 is perfect for dirt. I want the 15/45 in addition to for my sumo setup on the road. I just didn't want to have to change chains but I will have to change countershaft when swapping out wheels.
