    Yep new motor, look close at it, water pump clutch cover etc.. I'm guessing a single sump, notice how the bottom of the cases are level front to back unlike the xc-4 where the trans is higher than the power section. It still doesn't mean it holds much oil though. Just a hunch:dunnoNew frame from the 350exc also. This looks like a lighter weight machine than the current 530. From the other photos it looks like it could be the same cylinder and head but the tank is in the view. I wonder if it has the Super reliable KTM EFI:bluduh , looks like it might. 3 steps forward 4 steps back.

    Hi guys
    Here is my problem:
    2010 KTM530EXC leaking I think from the countershaft oil seal.
    Only a little oil but still.
    So I bought the parts, oil seal and o ring.
    I have the sprocket and spacer off but my question is how do I remove the existing seal in the proper correct way. I tried to just lift it out but it looks like some force might be required in which case I want to make sure I am doing it right.

    The new piece

    The old piece that needs to be removed.

    Any hints as to how to remove it?

    Thanks so I checked online to see what these seal pullers were like. Turns out they look more like little claw hammers than what I expected them to look like (like a bearing puller). So it is kind of hard to get tools here, I realised that the torx keys I have would do that job and sure enough. Old seal out and new seal in. Thanks mate.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Take the smallest drillbit you have and drill a small hole in the seal, then take a small fine thread wood screw and screw about two threads in the hole then pull on the screw.

    Before putting the screw in I would use a shop vac to suck any shavings out of the hole, even if you cant get them out they are really soft and no damage will occur if they get past the bearing.

    so my bike has less than 2 hours on it and the end cap/screen has gone missing. Is it the actual spark arrestor or is it just a noise reducer? i wouldnt bother with it if its just for noise, but i do want to ride in the forest and dont want a ticket from a ranger for no spark arrestor..

    It's for noise. The spark arrestor is down deeper and ain't coming out.

    Noise is bad for the sport.

    thanks. i agree about noise being bad, but i havent been able to tell its any louder than when the screen was in, the stock pipe seems reasonably mellow to me.

    I took out the restrictor inside and somehow my screen also fell out on a ride, guess i didnt screw it back on tight enough. Anyhow noise does slightly increase but still very respectable. I get passed by some of those crotch rockets that are much more loud. Theres also a vid on youtube with a sound test with the above mods, it ranged 94-95 db.

    Loc-Tite (the red kind) works as well.

    A pic of the AWD build as it sits, about 60% complete. Taking my time, 1st KTM so familiarizing myself with not only the bike, and setup, decorking, emissions delete, aftermarket armor, suspension, controls and other parts, but also the AWD conversion.

    Question: Is the black plastic housing in the coolant lines above the crankcase a thermostat? Can I eliminate it? With factory XCW parts, or an aftermarket line kit? Thanks in advance.

    Also, as above the screen in the exhaust tip is NOT the spark arrestor? It's for noise supression? I wired it on. Cut out the internal restrictor.

    I thought the consensus was the screen at the tip was more of a dissipator to keep from melting the stock turn signal. I'm sure it helps with noise and may also serve as a secondary spark arrestor. It might also add enough restriction (coupled with the inner restriction) to run stock jetting almost safely. :lol3

    I think the real spark arrestor is a Krizman (sp?) type way down in the muffler.

    Rejet, desmog, regear. Basically make it like the XCW and it will run fine. Do a search on ktmtalk.com on how to fix it.

    530 changes from 2008-2009? I know they fixed some things with the 2009s, and that would be the way to go, but if you found a 2008 for the right price...

    How would you know if it was a burner if buying it used? What could you check?

    Anything that would make less than 2009 a deal breaker? I know Ned seemed to like his 2009 a lot more.
