Just confirming, 2012 models came with all black wheels, 2013 with silver?
They changed rims in 2013 so the only difference is black rim on 12's vs silver on 13's. Both have black spokes/silver hubs.
Try the phone number on his website, I got through to him ok yesterday.
Discussed various light options as I wondered if a spot/flood combination would be best.
He reckons no great advantage in that.
Apparently the model 60 led is a wide beam flood which, combined with the dimmer, is the best allround option that will fit our OEM shroud.
I know San and have seen his products in action. First class fella and some real cool lights. You can't go wrong with one of his setups .
I ordered one of these Profill filters for my new bike and new tank (both of which I have not picked up yet) on 4/13/13 and surprisingly it has already arrived. It is utterly amazing how quickly this thing made it here from Australia. It would have been delivered yesterday but since I was not home, I had to go pick it up at the Post Office. Amazing service! I did not expect it to show up for at least another week.
The wide beam, flood is also what the Baja Designs Squadron has installed. Did he mention why he did not think the spot would add any benefit? Any news on why the difference in the electrical draw pulled from BD and ADV Monster lights?
Have a look at the following thread starting from post 3335
In our phone conversation he told me that the model 60 led beam pattern is good enough that adding a spot doesn't add much benefit. I took that at face value seeing as he's selling me less with that advice.
Thanks for the link Bill - When we get our bikes side by side it'll be interesting to see if there are any noticeable differences in the light thrown between the BD and Sanjoh's set-up.
Just got the Faast Flexx bars and Pauls HDB guards delivered. Hacksawing the bars narrower with the broken arm will be fun.
I'd be interested in knowing if any of you are using Rekluse's on your 500's and which model?
I have a 450xcw 2013 and went with the core exp. I am amazed at how well it works. Install was a breeze and it took very little to get it dialed in. Try and find someone in your area that has this set up who will let you ride it. Just be ready to breakout your wallet.
My friends have 350's and have different models on them.One with a Pro and the other with a exp. What I was most concerned about was the extra horsepower the 500 has. One of the Rekluse's you remove a friction plate or two.
Core EXP 2.0
The core exp 2 uses all the plates. I get plenty of tire slip when I want it but no issues on clutch slip. You can also upgrade the Belleville spring from the stock 250psi to the 280psi. I had picked up the 280 to install but have not felt the need to open the clutch back up and install it.
I won't have a 500 until next month, but used the Z-start on my 530. After riding the 300 with EFM auto clutch since 02, I can say Rekluse has it down, and some of the first things I will put on my 500 will be the full core exp and lhrb.
I admit i have not spent alot of time searching this thread, but I was wondering if any one had any input on riding any distance at all on this bike? I was talking to the dealer and he did not seem very confident at all about riding these very far on pavement. Any and all opinons would be very helpful, or if someone could point in the right direction to look.
'Riding any distance' or 'riding very far' depends on ones point of view.
How often do you want to change the oil? Think 150hr top end, a valve check every 50 hours or so. It's not a streetbike, it's a dirtbike that is legal to ride on the street.
Street riding the 500 EXC? I've ridden the 20 miles or so on the freeway between my dealer and home a couple if times. Not as bad as you might expect, but still pretty awkward, mostly because of the tires. I would not shy away from this as a way of connecting the trails, but I definitely would not want to commute to work on it, quite aside from the maintenance schedule.
Twin-air now makes these too
These guys say it all. I just finished a nice 125 mile ride with about 20 miles of pavement.... I hate the pavement...even twisty country roads...but its necessary to get to the "good stuff" where the 5hunny does what it was designed to do... ride off road...
This is NOT a commuter scoot.... especially for around 9K...
