That was a heck of a mud hole! Good thing you had phone reception :eek1
Nice one soilsample
Obviously, I spend too much time in Jo Momma, trying to be like my hero, Waterwheel.
It's a great feel-good story, and the kind of thing the world needs more of. I sure just about every member of advrider (including me) would offer to buy SteveO a beer and thank him for caring about the next generation. But it isn't so sacrosanct that we can't have a little fun with it. Really.
Well actually, I was saying that you failed to pull off the water wheel impersonation. Of course its a feel good story, enjoy your jump to conclusions mat.
Oh Yeah,that plug. A friend eliminated the key on his 2012 EXC500,wanted it to be more like a dirt bike.
The bike was stolen from behind his house and never seen again. I would think it would be quick with FI and no key to worry about. Bump the button and ride off into the night.
Lock your bikes folks! I see lots of bikes on CL being reported stolen these days.
back on track.......
I'm looking for a front plastic disc guard for me 500. The plastic variety, like the style that comes on the 450 Honda's, any experience? I was riding in some pretty good ruts this past weekend and I don't want to bend up disc.
I know acerbic makes the one that replaces the axle spacer on the disc side. other than that maybe try cycra?
Anybody have any radiator gaurds they like on the 500? I'm looking to get some and not sure what to get. Looks like KTM hardparts makes some that wrap around the whole thing that look pretty good.
BRP makes the best, IMO.
Bulletproof. I know of some people who have kept their guards through three generations of bikes.
As a follow-up: check out what Malcolm Smith and his son think about the Bulletproof guards.
Not plastic but looks trick...P3's Carbon Fiber guard.

Foreign to me, I wont add one till I bust a disk .
Check out these guys. I bought their skidplate and rad guard protection.
Weird they used to be Scorpion Racing - I have one of their skid plates on my YZ250 real tough, also real pain to install (had to pull pipe)
Yeah they had to change their name because Pirelli thought using the name Scorpion was a trademark infringement. The skidplate for the 500 went on fairly easy. Haven't gotten around to the rad guards yet, but from what I see they're no different than others. Very robust construction so they'll provide good protection when I slam the bike onto the earth.
