    Has anyone had problems with the carb bogging when the bike gets hot. I was riding out at the west mesa in Albuquerque with the temp around 101 degrees. This has happened twice on hot rides, the bike will leak a lot of gas when this happens. Is my float sticking? Should I take it in or is this easy to fix? Any help would be great, sarcastic comments will be laughed at. Yes I ended a sentence with a preposition:rofl.
    Thanks,
    Marc

    If someone will instruct me on how to place a picture here I'll show you a neat solution to the question "how to carry tools (and stuff) on a 530".

    I've got the tools figured out, with plenty of inspiration from that thread. What I can't seem to settle on is how to carry them. I've never been comfortable with a fanny pack. I've been using an ogio flight vest which is great for keeping things organized and within reach. It also spreads the load well. Still gets heavy on a long technical trail ride though.

    BTW, I'm also a big fan of Kriega packs. I wear an R25 when I need a lot of supplies.

    First, check the pair of air vent hoses that come out both sides of the carb. One hose of each pair should be routed high-up above the airbox or to the steering stem.

    I suspect both are routed to the ground by your swing arm pivot, and are not able to vent the carb when submerged in water.

    This is a basic requirement for bikes that cross any water.

    I think Dutchman is right----he thinks your bike is 'surging' ( rather than 'bucking') because your carb is sucking water----The advise he has given you to route the hoses high---above the water level---should cure your problem

    Here's a pic of one setup I've used. It looks pretty lame, but it works like a charm. I only run it like this on long trips when the top of the bike is loaded down with camping gear. I stole the idea from a buddy who rides a KLR.

    Here's an overall pic so you can see how it sits up out of the way. I was loaded pretty heavy, but the bike still rode great. We did quite a few passes, some single track, a water crossing, and some sand. I hate sand.

    2009 EXC 530 Exhaust questions:

    Does anyone know if the stock exhaust with the reducer cut off (the inside) of the end cap (to open it up a bit) makes it louder than 96 db?

    Is the oem screw-in screen (in the end cap) a usfs approved spark arrestor?

    Should I just order the Pro Moto Billet end cap, spark arrestor and db killer?

    I want to enter an organized event and I need to be spark arrested and @ or under 96db.

    Thanks in advance.

    Makes it louder, not sure of the db rating. I didn't like it and bought a FMF Q4 Ti muffler to make it deeper sounding. Stock opened up has a rasp to it I didn't like. I like quiet bikes though.

    No, it is just a noise reducer. The spark arrester is further upstream and before the reducer that you want to cut off.

    Then you will have 2 spark arrestors. Order a FMF Q4 instead. Join KTM Talk, order from Munn Racing through there to get it CHEAP!

    Leave it stock or use FMF Q4.

    Wheel balance?
    Chain tension?
    Jetting?
    Engine mount torque?

    Somethings funny, I think 530s are pretty smooth!


    (Nice mirrors, BTW!)
