EU Map

Switch 500 topic to ignition curves.

Does anyone have the KM787EU12C0701 map file? This is the European map for the 500 EXC. If so, let me know. This format, the C0701, works with aftermarket mufflers. The EU allows us to use map switches on our handlebar to change mapping for changes in our racing environment.

These files map the ignition to the engine configuration (c.c.s, cam profile, etc.) so there are a pile of them for the various engines and configurations. If you want to fine tune your ignition for racing these are needed. Get the JT Tuner 6X to then refine your jetting. The nomenclature is not clear to me. I'm guessing that KM = KTM Map, 787 = 500 with exhaust changes (775 is for the 350s), EU = Euro map (US = maps for the XC-Ws, EXCs, etc. in this market), 12 = the year and the CXXXX = software version. Please chime in if you know what these various parts of the file name are. It would help so that someone with a 350 didn't try to load a map for a 250, for example, and screw their engine up.

It would be really great if someone would publish software to load on our laptops to change ignition mapping track side for whatever conditions we need. Car guys do this. Factory motorcycle teams do it. We need it as well.

Has anyone tried to see how far they can get with the TuneECU software? The 690 crowd can swap maps at will. I've lent my cable to an inmate so can't try it. Same KTM plug as for the 690.

Thx, it was helpful.

I want to keep the cockpit minimalist.

The 500 XC-W has the headlight switch by the computer and starter and kill button mounted next to the clutch and brake perches respectively.

If I retain that, then I just need two switches for high beam and horn, preferably near the perches for easy access.

Wondering if the top perch double switch from HDB will fit the 500 XC-W brake perch of clutch perch ?




( I dont need turn indicators)

As for the center bar top clamp, just a ram ball mount and power outlet for gps is all I need there.

I assumed the new '13 500 would probably be similarly better than my '07 565 and, wow, it does not disappoint at all! It is a little lighter than the 565 but it feels like it is in between the 300 and the 565 for weight (until I dump it and have to pick it up). I have not tried it on anything like your tight, muddy jungle trails so I cannot comment on that.

Once I get the motor sorted out ("jetting" basically) I think this thing would pull right along with the 565 partly because it gets better traction than the 565. It hooks and flies. I put in a 1.4 lb. Shorai battery (about 3.5 lbs saving of weight up high) and the Akrapovic muffler (another 2 lbs up high) and put on the Sicass sub fender / rear flush turn signals and front hand guard turn signals for another 3 lbs. of high up weight. That helped as well. With the Euro map and the Sicass map switch set to "Mild" this is the best street motorcycle I have ever had. Very smooth everywhere with zero glitches. With the map on "Wild" you can be a street badass.

If you try to turn your 250 into a multi day ride you will hate yourself. I don't think it even has a counter balancer. I would take the 300 over the 250 for that sort of ride any time. Lighter and better power.

I just now ordered the JD Jetting 6X Tuner. I should have it on and test it next week. I will let you know how that goes.

It now holds 1.5 liters of oil so you really do not need a cooler. Valve checks are probably a 20 minute job from the look of it, once you get the smog crap out of the way.

My bike came without the two bolts for the SAS system. The drain plug and washer work for the exhaust side. Just Dremel off the magnet. The other one I found in my junk box. When you pull the spigot out of the intake just make certain that the bolt you put in is no longer than the spigot's threaded length since you don't want to push aluminum from the hole into the intake tract, if there is any there. A copper washer left over from one of your 570's valve cover bolts completes this. I also put teflon tape on the threads of this screw since I do not want leaks on the intake side.

If you have a cushioned hub just keep it and slide it on the 500. Used ones seem to go within minutes of being posted.

How will KTM top this? They probably will. Can't wait to see what they do.

Stu and i have exchanged PM's and emails for quite a bit now, discussing bits and bikes, and always seem to be attracted to the same bikes. Glad we don't live near each other or we'd be eyeing each others gals I'm sure. Stu your inputs are useful beyond belief in assisting potential buyers like myself that have no access to.the damn bike for riding. Again thank you for all the efforts you put into responses.

From Giant Loop re attaching GL to 500EXC

I wrote Giant Loop about the difficulty of attaching securely GL products to the 500EXC's rear fender (hook does not fit). Here's his answer, for now:

"...I'm jealous - the new 500EXC is on my wish list!

On some bikes, making notches in the plastic with a Dremel tool enables the hook to fit. I'll run over to our local KTM shop and see if I can take some pictures of the fitment on the new machines.

We don't recommend running the strap under the fender - when the shock fully compresses it can hit the fender and the knobbies are going to damage the strap and/or bag. The tugger strap is probably an OK option, but we can do better . . . Let me see what I can find out.

It would be terrific if you can share the info in that thread, too . . . I'll get back to you ASAP.

Thanks for riding Giant Loop,
Harold"

I will keep you all posted. Thanks.

sicass bulb problem???

Has anyone else had a problem with using the halogen KTM replacement bulb? I went with the 40/45w bulb for more light. I have used it for several hours then friday morning i went out to start bike for commute and the headlight wouldn't work and the high beam indicator light wouldn't turn off, no matter what position the switch was in... had some time today to look and found this... once i got it all cleaned and separated, the bulb is fine and so are the contacts. Just the weather cover is not going to stop water anymore. Looking at it, should the bulb have been sticking out below the plastic base as far as it is??? Too close to rubber dust cover? Any ideas are appreciated, I don't usually ride it at night, just have to have light for street use.

Just curious if you had managed to finish the editing for your video. I'm considering the KTM at the moment and it would be cool to see just how easy the valve check/adjustment is.

Help!

Hi, I love my EXC and the forum has been very helpful. Sadly I crashed pretty hard yesterday, and crushed the computer and broke some wires. There is a plug behind the headlight with two wires, a grey and a white. Can someone tell me what these used to go to? Or perhaps even send a pic? I would be grateful.

Thanks\

The grey and white goes to 2 black wires that go to the shut off switch above the starter on mine.
