My guards clear by ~ 1/8" at the top, outside corner.
I wish I could take pics like that.
My bike sprung a leak! Actually, the fuel line quick disconnect is leaking. I haven't finished diagnosing the problem but I would be interested to know if anyone else has had this happen. I had the KTM wash plug kit installed with the supplied O-ring on the tank side and the cap on the Zip-Ty filter for a couple of days while adjusting valves, waiting on shims and doing some other maintenance. I put the tank back on last night and reconnected the fuel line. Everything felt normal. When I hit the starter button a stream of fuel shot out from between the two halves of the quick disconnect fitting. The O-ring supplied in the wash kit felt a little tight. Could that have expanded the plastic on the male part of the quick disconnect fitting causing the connection to become loose? Or did the O-ring on the Zip-Ty filter dry out? Any other ideas to check?
I'm using this tank with the Bullet Proof guards ... no issues
I think it dried out.
I've made many, many O-rings work again by soaking them in straight gasoline overnight and reinstalling them.
They re-swell back up after shrinking from drying out.
I learned this working on jet aircraft early in my Air Force career....fuel leaks from manifolds everywhere when first refueling, then they would cure themselves once the seals would swell back up.
Although I don't think I've ever had to put more than 2 gal in it. Probably could use a 3 gal tank just fine.
Just saw this if anyone's looking, could prolly be had for less, with a nice bushel of parts to boot.
She is a Professional Photographer and model, come to AZ and she will take your pics. And we can show you some trails in AZ.
Wickenburg Az is our alt riding destination if we get skunked by weather during our Feb Moab trip, so far we've been lucky and it's been nice every year.
Yup, that is a good area to base out of lots of trails and riding in every direction. Rides from mild to wild what's your flavor of the day?
I'm in Phoenix 1/2 hour 45 min from Wickenburg a nice western town with charm much more reasonable than Phoenix or Scottsdale. Here is a picture at the Mile Markers riding area also known as Boulders OHV plenty of great single track and a nice ride up to the town of Crown King. lake Pleasant in the distance.
That seems to be the culprit. I put it back together and it dripped for a couple minutes then stopped. After a couple more hours the bike fired right up with no leaks.
That's my hood. I have a great riding group, AA riders, who are usually up for entertaining out of town riders. I can't lead a ride in that area, but look me up if you come this way and I'll do my best to arrange a great ride for you.
Mine are the round tubular units. They utilize the stock plastic protectors and essentially rim around the radiator.
They'll fit. My buddy has them on his 350 with the 5.3 tank
I have a ton of good parts for the 500 for sale.
Front tires are just harder with the tubliss cause you cannot get the bead fully into the valley.... i just did my third tire change with them and it was easiest yet... but the front still sucks.
Who makes the integrated taillight with blinkers for the EXC?
I don’t know the name of the company, but you can get them on eBay.
This sure hasn't been my experience with 20-30 changes over the last several years. Are you finishing at the rim lock? Try a Bead Buddy? When in doubt--MORE LUBE!
get like a big c clamp and clamp down the opposite end of the tire. I never tried myself but saw them doing that at the SX
