The design is similar to what KTM uses on the 690 motors and 9xx motors. 10mm bucket shims.

I'm confused. Euro only? That power plant looks like a kissing cousin to my 505's engine....with a kick starter.

I don't think so, the engine is a completely different design from what I have read.

That's the 500exc image right from the Mother Land's KTM website (can't get there from the US site when I tried). It looks like a DOHC engine to me. Being a huge fan of the 505, I'm very interested in laying some eyes on an actual specimen. Who knows. Here's the link regardless: http://www.ktm.com/at/enduro/500-exc-six-days.html

The picture is still wrong. The 500 uses a OHC head and same bore and stroke as the previous 520/525/530s. 450/505 SX-F are completely different.

500 EXC:

Yah, they screwed up and put the photo of the 350 six days where the 500 should be. If you look at the regular 500 (non six days) you get the correct photo.
Very nice motor.
Here it is:

KTM seems to have a habit of that. Why I remember way back in the day, with 505 xc-f images, they included a 2-smoke in the mix.

Well, the wind has been officially sucked from my sails. I was ready to sell my 950 and 505 and get me a RF4-like 500exc. Dang.

I have been waiting and waiting for an EXC with EFI in the States for sometime... I also would like the linkage but I can settle. However since the new Euro models have dropped on the KTM Euro site, every dealer I have spoken to said they feel that KTM will not bring the EFI to the states. Well I did a little nerd-ing around and found this technical data hidden in the KTM USA Site... I hope it's true! The pic is small but the Carb states EFI... Again I am sorry for the small screenshot but in the corner you can see that it's the North America site... I just changed the addresses around and brought up the un linked US Version.

I for one would love the carb'd version. It would seem KTM is still not up on their EFI working right, read the 690 thread fest. New fuel pumps , a VOTEX ECU, and time plus countless hours of agony with no answers, please give me a carb and a jet kit any day it works.

Of course I guess they could give everyone an APP for our phones we could plug in and down load via 4G the latest fix of the day while out on the trail
