Forfeit driver's license in 3..2..1....
BTW, what skid plate do you have on your bike? Like it?
Yeah, it's gonna be a tough time hanging on to points... :)
Also, I have a Hyde Racing plate - http://www.hyderacing.com/store/dirtbike/ktm/450_4t.htm
It's light, and althogh it's missing a few chunks, it works like a champ. Can be a bit of a PITA to taking on and off with the front mount, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. Also, I think Geek tapes his mounts on er something.
yeah put some double sided foam servo tape between the mount and the frame the first time you tighten it up.
From then on.. mounting is a breeze. IMHO, they should include the tape. As it is... you can get some at any hobby shop.
The XC-W comes with 13/50 gearing. I heard the EXC's have something like 15/45. I'm going to a dual sport rally early april so I'm going to try the 14 front first. The bike has a ton of low end so I'm sure it will handle more
if I decide to.....
That SUMO looks bitchen! wish I had the jack for 2 XC-W's.....
That looks sic!
I just got home again from an overseas assignment and my sumo wheels and parts are in waiting to get picked up for my EXC.
Gonna be a tough year on the license!
Don't forget to swap or add another speedo pick up.
Put the dirt set up on for a ride yesterday and forgot.
Time for more orange
Here are some pics I just took of it mounted up:
that is cool!
yeah that is really nice! i like the carbon fiber decals...nice touch!
is that a hyde skid plate you have on there?
Oh man, I think I just had an inappropriate response to those pictures! A little of that carbon decally stuff in the inter bits of the hand guard shields would be tasty too. I know it wouldn't last a minute in the bush, but it would be good for the beauty shots.
geek what steering stabilizer are you using?
Thanks Yes, the hyde plastic plate.
Scotts - mounted on the HDB mounting
Cool thing is I have a huge roll of it from when I covered my 950's glove box lid with it.
I made a template.. so it would take me less than 5 minutes to peal it off and replace it depending on how much I tear it up in the woods
If I find myself shredding it every ride.. I'll probably just mask it off and paint it.
Great look, you could use some on the tank insets too.
Anybody have the ohlins 2.1 on thier 500?
I'm back in the garage this weekend looking to finish up the installation of my HDB hand guards and heated grips.
As already suggested I would like to use the fan connector under the tank to power the grips. The molex connector on the now unused license plate illumination light matches this connector and the wire is more than long enough to get up behind the headlight. How would I know which side of the fan power connector is power, and which is ground?
I've just completed exactly what your doing, at least installing HDB setup with heated grips. I used a Battery Tender lead, (it's Fused) from the battery up to the headlight. Made my own male/female connector set up. Put the headlight on right side of the handlebar bracket and the heated grips on the other. I only wired the heated grips for the low side. Less amps and convenience, used the HWD push buttons for both. Turned out real good! Only problem I can see is leaving the grips on! I'll have to be very causes about that!
