top motor mount bolts

who knows the what the torque spec is for the bolts that hold the bracket for the charcoal canister? These are the top motor mount bolts. I took off the canister bracket.

The manual mentions something about engine bolts, not sure which ones its talking about.

Looks like the stock blinker and exhaust do not play well together, not a big surprise.

Will KTM ever fix this bad design. Geese. Fail. Get the Euro tail w/the sicass flushmount blinkers. Love mine.

Hey Evel,

Did you have the JD tuner set to the recommended settings for the 500? Also, did you try the WILD plug without the JD tuner?

Cheers,

Clay

Yes For my jd. tuner iwent back to recommended settings...and no I did not try with out. ..once I make changes I like to leave alone ... I don't want to confuse my bike. I'm afraid if I ever put the mild plug in...imy bike will think its on vacation lol. The bike even sounds better it's kinda hard to explain in stead of a 4stroke sound it now has a deep factory electric sound healthy real healthy my bike has never ran so good.

I was just thinking about the maintenance of this engine and started looking at the manual.

At 105 hours, KTM is calling for the following:

Change spark Plug and Connector
Change Connecting Rod, Bearing and Crank Pin
Change the Piston

There are other "checks", but these stood out to me.

At 41 hours (1100 miles) of riding, I feel like I'm just starting to break in the bike. I can't see how the above items need to be change at such an early stage in the bike's life......

Any comments?

That is if you race the bike and want it in top condition.

My old wr400f manual said to replace piston/rings...etc. every 400 miles. It was never done after over 8000 miles.

Just ride it.
